No other world in video games comes close to this in size or scope, and there is sharp intelligence behind its sense of humour and gift for mayhem.
It also raises the bar for open-world mission design in a big way and has one of the most beautiful, lively, diverse and stimulating worlds ever seen in a game.
That's GTA V at its best - excelling at what you thought GTAs were supposed to do, while heading for the next impossibly high peak.
The world is breathtaking, the script is funny, the music is superb and, most of all, it's really, really fun.
GTA V is the culmination of everything we love about the series: It's big, it's pretty, and most importantly it's just nonstop fun.
Grand Theft Auto V expertly blends the best aspects of the last two major releases in the series, GTA IV and San Andreas, to set a new standard in open-world action.
Like the golden state it parodies, Grand Theft Auto V is filled with beautiful scenery, a wealth of activities, and the promise of fortune.
