As good as they say, NOT for kids.

I've recently gotten back into video games, and it's incredible how far they've come.

I'm running it on a home built AMD Kaveri with 8gb memory-both overclocked to the max (4.5ghz & 2400mhz) and Samsung solid state drives. It runs the benchmark video on GTA 5 @ 35 FPS (stock settings).
I recently installed an R7 250 2gb video card(crossfired with the APU), which nets about 80fps with the settings all at max. The video is amazing, every wave, cloud, fur on animals is just incredible. You can see underwater objects in real detail. My compliments to the artists and engineers @ Rockstar. I tell you this because many people don't know how it will run on their computer and I hope this will give them an additional reference. You DO need a fairly modern machine, but it doesn't need to be a $3000 gamer to allow you to enjoy the game.

Enough tech, how's the game??
Great, so far! While I can't comment much on the storyline at this point, The play is challenging, especially the shooting and driving, bearing in mind, I've only flown flight sims (X-Plane & Realflight 7.5) in the past few years, so I'm rather a newbie. It took me a couple days to get through the prologue, which unlocks the rest of the game, and many functions. I received my x-box style controller and that helped a lot. (HOTAS X Flight stick not a good match) I did have to change some settings on the controller page, most important the aiming, There's a automatic aiming which you'll want to turn on, otherwise it's VERY touchy, as steering the vehicles (for which I've found no way around). You can use the keyboard, but I found it uncomfortable and hindering, others prefer it, from what I understand. For me, 5 minutes with the controller and I made it well past my previous progress, and had much more fun with it.

The visuals are stunning, enough so, I'm constantly amazed. You'll replay or run the benchmark footage just to take it all in. Objects blowing in the breeze, cats jumping out as you walk thru an alley, detail you won't believe. The play is indeed challenging, and I'm sure I will be a long,long time completing the required course. Beyond that, you can play around forever, and they are constantly adding features, no charge. An online connection is required, as is free membership in "The Rockstar Social Club" which is a Rockstar Games owned website with all things GTA related, a store, forum, place to invite 'friends' for group play, tech support and much I haven't looked into yet.
I purchased the downloadable version, and it worked smoothly with no problems. The download took about 8 hours on a mid-speed broadband system.

If you're a person easily offended, be warned, in the 1st 5 minutes, the F & N bombs are thrown at least 50 times and you are required to murder someone. Remember, it's a crime story, and is replete with all the culture, rough language and lack of respect for others that comes with it.

Take it for what it is, and have fun, I know I will!

Good game.

Gta is a lot of fun but now with all of the dlc and bad servers I feel that gta is losing its touch.

Great game, Mods make it even better!

I played this game on release when it was availabpe on the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2013. I just had to experience it again when I saw Third-Person mode was enabled on the nect gen consoles, but i stead I opted for the PC version when I moved to PC Gaming. Overall I had an amazing experience!Read full review...

Worth it.

I call worth. For this price getting GTA V is 100% worth it. I was hesitant at first, but when i purchased it, i was very happy that it was the full game, as described in the description.
