Giant Bomb (Sep 16, 2013)
Grand Theft Auto V's unique storytelling meshes well with standard GTA-style action, giving you multiple perspectives on some fantastic criminal activities.
TrueAchievements (Sep 24, 2013)
Grand Theft Auto V deserves its title as a blockbuster. Rockstar has crafted an absolute masterpiece and produced a clear Game of the Year contender. Other games contending for this award will have their work cut out for them to produce something this special. With this kind of hype, a game often falls short of the high expectations, but Grand Theft Auto V meets them. Grand Theft Auto V is a game you absolutely need to have in your collection, something that everyone should experience and enjoy.
Over two thousand words into the review and it doesn’t feel like we’ve scratched the surface of Grand Theft Auto V. This is a sprawling experience, offering countless activities ranging from practicing yoga to smuggling guns. Playing around in its virtual sandbox is enjoyable enough to fill five game’s worth of playtime, but ignoring all of the world’s amenities and solely playing the missions still puts countless other action games to shame. More still, it features arguably the best story of the series that’s greatly enhanced by the added dynamic of three contrasting protagonists. There’s multiple hyperbolic statements that we could pile on to convey the excellence protruding from nearly every facet of the game (like that one), but all that matters is this: Grand Theft Auto V is both a step forward for the franchise and an amalgamation of the best parts of its previous titles.

Серия Grand Theft Auto всегда отличалась исключительно мужским характером. Дело даже не в абсолютной свободе действия, данной героям, и вытекающих из этого картин, а в том, что женские персонажи в здесь никогда не получали главные роли. Пятая часть в этом плане не изменяет традициям — история расписана между тремя главными и еще дюжиной прочих мужских героев, а женщины в кадре появляются лишь в эпизодических сценах, уступая сильному полу почти все экранное время. Такая позиция заслуживала бы всеобщего порицания, если бы Rockstar не были мастерами по возведению почти эталонных произведений про «мужчин за работой». В этом плане GTA V берет пример с главных творений массовой культуры в этом не самом распространенном жанре — «Схватки» Манна и «Бешеных псов» Тарантино.
Defunct Games (Oct 01, 2013)
Even if you couldn't care less about the political messages the game is making, Grand Theft Auto V offers a compelling story about three bank robbers on a mission to get rich and break free of the past. It also offers a giant world to explore, complete with dozens of worthwhile activities and the promise of an ever-changing online experience. There's flying, boating, driving, hiking, swimming, skydiving and so much more to see and do in San Andreas. Grand Theft Auto V is Rockstar Games at their most confident.
XboxAchievements (Sep 16, 2013)
It's been more than five years since Grand Theft Auto IV, but Grand Theft Auto V is most definitely worth the wait. Memorable missions, barnstorming heists, amusing side objectives and an almost impossibly immersive world to explore, make for the best Grand Theft Auto since Vice City and San Andreas. Rockstar has ensured that we'll get to see out this generation with a bang, and Grand Theft Auto V is the perfect swansong. It's a work of unbridled, flawless genius and a game that demands to be played to death.

Still, even with the small stumbles GTA V Online is still worth the ride for the sheer here’s a sand box you can jump on in and play however you like kind of vibe. The amount of things a player can do and invest in time and customization of their character and their belongings in the online game is insane cool.

GTA V is a superb game that deserves to be on anyone's shelf that can handle the mature issues inside the game. The issues may not be handled in the most mature way possible, but the game is amazing regardless. A few bugs mar a perfect score.
The Controller Online (Sep 19, 2013)
The wait between Grand Theft Auto games always feels like forever but the wait has never been more worthwhile. Grand Theft Auto 5 outdoes the rest with a great story, three interesting main characters, and a world that is just begging to be explored. This is the biggest and best GTA game yet and, whether you’re a long time fan or thinking of picking up your first GTA game, you need to get yourself a copy of GTA V.
Destructoid (Sep 16, 2013)
Grand Theft Auto V is both a reflective and deflective game, diving into the heart of the GTA series with more than a few subtle things to say about itself. Michael is tired, and old, and wants to change, but he can't, and eventually he grows to accept and even enjoy that. Franklin is smarter than his surroundings, dreaming big but held back by old fashioned ideas. Trevor is hilarious, surprising, and a disgusting degenerate. All three characters, in their respective ways, feel representative of the Grand Theft Auto series as a whole, and contribute to making GTA V what it is -- the ultimate culmination of Rockstar's beloved and despised series. Personally, I think that's a fine thing to be.
90 (Sep 18, 2013)
Pot-pourri de bonnes idées, le titre de Rockstar réinvente l'open world et narre avec une précision diabolique la destinée de trois vils gredins dans un immense Los Angeles virtuel. Plus que jamais libre de ses mouvements et maître de sa progression, le joueur dévore un panel de missions incroyablement varié, de braquages de banque en exécutions de la pègre locale en passant par des sauts en parachute ou la fouille des fonds marins. Malgré son scénario un peu prévisible et ses fins un chouia expédiées, GTA V est magistralement mis en scène et jouit d'une narration aux petits oignons, bien aidée par le switch permanent entre Michael, Trevor et Franklin. Le sentiment de liberté poussé à son paroxysme. Quant au multijoueur, GTA Online offre une réelle prolongation de l'expérience solo et crée un nouveau genre soumis à évolution. Le résultat est satisfaisant, offre un vrai confort de jeu en équipe ou en solo, et du contenu en pagaille !
Realm of Gaming (Nov 03, 2013)
In all, GTAV is an excellent game, one of the best this year and certainly the best of the GTA series so far. There may be the feeling of "been here, done that", which is only natural for a game of its type, as they rightly wouldn't want to completely overhaul the mould. It does however mean that veterans of the series may not get the same sense of wonderment as newcomers. What Rockstar has done so remarkably, is to craft this latest GTA as the quintessential version of the series, crammed with detail, novel experiences and a wonderful cast of characters.

Alles ist größer, schöner und weiter, wirkt aber auf mich unter dem Strich nur selten wie mehr als ein auf Massentauglichkeit getrimmtes GTA 4.5. Trotz Trevor, der für mich mit seiner psychopathischen Kompromisslosigkeit eine der interessantesten Videospielfiguren der letzten Jahre ist. Trotz des großteils gelungenen Versuches, eine auf sechs Schultern verteilte Story zu erzählen sowie mit Sex und Gewalt zu provozieren und so endlich den längst fälligen Schulterschluss zwischen Videospielen und Filmen bzw. TV-Serien wie The Sopranos oder Breaking Bad zu schaffen – auch wenn es unter dem Strich nicht ganz reicht und zu bemüht wirkt. Aber dieser Schritt war wichtig! Habe ich mich in Los Santos wohl gefühlt? Ja! Ich habe jede verdammte Minute genossen und ausgekostet. Aber Rockstar muss aufpassen, nicht von der eigenen Vergangenheit überholt zu werden. Die Mannen um Sam und Dan Houser haben es nicht geschafft, die offene Welt mit frischen Impulsen auf eine neue Stufe zu heben.

Een online eldorado van fun en chaos, nog steeds gepijnigd door kinderziektes, maar gestuwd door keuzevrijheid en customization opties. Benieuwd wat voor geschifts de Creation Kit nog zal brengen!
Diehard GameFan (Sep 24, 2013)
If you do not like the tone of the series then you will not likely find much to love since GTAV makes no attempt to appeal to a larger crowd. If you are a fan then the game is what I consider to be the best one in the series and I can’t recommend it enough.
