    Broken, broken, and what else? BROKEN.

    First of all, I loved the previous GTA games and therefore, I'm no hater. But I do take issue with certain individuals who say that it runs great, gave it a perfect score, and complain about people letting the game down.... Read Full Review

    Very fun game

    Same GTA slightly different missions. Nothing different from previous title. Total let down.

    GTA V has come a long way but it seemed as though some of the missions were either boring or too intense. The worse missions were the question marks. The pot seller guy missions need to be removed. Killing aliens with... Read Full Review

    Hyped up too much

    Audio: Solid voice acting, Solid sound track with a ton of variety, and solid sound effects. Visuals: Characters look fine as do the environments but it's riddled with bugs and glitches that are very noticeable. ... Read Full Review
