Grand Theft Auto GTA 5 (PC) Review

After waiting for more than a year, PC users should be relieved that Grand Theft Auto V is almost here for them, as well. The console ports have become smashing hits and they broke a number of selling records, proving once again that the GTA franchise is one of the most successful in the history of video gaming. Like always, the PC port is delivered at a later time, but it seems that this time, Rockstar Games really took their time and delayed the game a bit too much, a move that seems to have deflated the hype surrounding the launch.



The new Grand Theft Auto V will take its toll when it comes to system requirements and some PC users might be left behind this time. The recommended specs have set the bar high, considering the quad-core Intel Core i5 3470 and the octa-core AMD X8 FX-8350 are officially listed as leading CPUs regarding the new game. However, there is still hope for those that are not interested in setting everything on “ultra” in the game’s menu: the quad-core Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 and the quad-core AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor are suited for those who want to pass the minimum requirements barrier.



In terms of graphics, Grand Theft Auto V is expected to bring a whole new level of realism, but this needs a lot of power from the GPU side, considering the state-of-the-art cards like NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB and the rival AMD HD 7870 2GB are the recommended ones for the game.



The PC version of the GTA V has been long-awaited, but it comes with a series of improvements over the already released games. Higher resolutions and better drawn distance are among the added elements to the game, but the differences are not just under the hood. The computer version of the game comes with an overhauled environment that changes a lot, starting with the wildlife and going all the way to new activities and weapons for the players. The online part of the game has been improved, as well, so that more players can join the same session simultaneously.



One issue that has been long debated regarding the game is the save-game progress, both online and offline. There was little incentive for those who already purchased and probably beaten the game on a previous or current-gen console, so Rockstar added the possibility of transferring the progress from consoles to computers. This way, players don’t have to start all over their story or work too much in order to gain the online benefits they already had. Returning players also benefit from specially added content in order to make the game experience fruitful once again. Overall, the game is expected to live up to its hype, although there is always the fear that GTA V will be a rather poorly optimized PC game, just as it happened with GTA IV.

  • The Good :
    Overhauled pc experience, New content added, Incentive for returning players
  • The Bad :
    High system requirements, Delayed launch
Our score:
4.5 / 5
