GTA 5

You play three different characters and it returns the setting to San Andreas.

You'll be able to switch characters at will. Each character will have a unique special ability. The world map will be 5 times bigger than Red Dead Redemption. Brings back skill system similar to GTA: San Andreas. Can explore underwater. Characters will have I Phones with apps and will be able to take pics and video of game while playing then post online.

Looks like a great game.

Heres the new trailer:

I gotta admit it looks fantastic. What annoys me is, what was my main critic point of GTA IV: the setting is to modern. I loved GTA:SA and Vice City for the times they played in. What i really like is that it plays in San Andreas again, because i loved the hood negro story of GTA:SA, but still i would find a mid 70s- early 90s setting better.

From what I understand, it never will be.

Has to do with the GTA Online version which automatically comes with the console games.

Well I got this one,

feel it's the best one yet, much of the annoyances of previous versions have been removed (like having to do XX missions before the map opens up..) and most all of the good stuff of previous runs has returned.

the missions, the few I tried, seem a little more thought out and the switching between character provides for some nice variation,

I'd recommend it

Yeah, this game is definitely fun. I do personally get bored rather quickly which is weird since there is so much to do. Think that is just me though. GTA is always worth playing I think. Lot's of crazy fun experiences. The online mode seems like it could be a lot of fun if you get into it to.

I really enjoy this game. The single player mode is engaging and quirky. Trevor is my favorite psychopath in the story. The action is pretty well done with a nice mix of weapons and uses.

I had a good online group going for a while with my skanky stripper character. The mix of combat, racing (air and vehicle), and deathmatch scenarios keeps it fairly fresh.
