Grand theft auto is one of those series that just never gets old. GTA games always brings new and creative ways to kill people and blow things up and provide countless hours of entertainment for gamers such as myself. For this reason, when Rockstar announced the release of GTA 5 I was extremely excited. I am hoping that this release will bring back much of the functionality that GTA 4 lacked, such as the ability to fly planes and drive tanks. It seems like the plane feature was removed with the release of GTA 4 because Rockstar feared gamers might simulate the events that occurred during 9/11 due to the fact that the map is a mock up version of New York City. You can still fly a helicopter, but it just isn’t the same.
This next release takes place in Vinewood, Los Puerta which is modeled after Hollywood, Los Angeles. GTA is known for its lengthy storyline and its free-roam map, so I am expecting a lot from the graphics and map layout. Vehicles, weapons and characters are all different, but the overall feel of the game seems very similar to GTA 4. I am hoping that this release will live up to its predecessor and will not just feel like an add on to GTA 4. The game’s release date is not yet given, but it should be out by summer.
I know I am always excited for more opportunities to blow up police cars and terrorize civilians, so for me this is definitely a game I will buy, but what are your opinions on this game? Do you think it will live up to the success of GTA 4, or will it be just another game in the GTA series? Let me know in a comment!
