What is GTA V all about?
The single-player story follows the story of three retired bank robbers: Franklin Clinton, Micheal de Santa, and Trevor Philips. The game focuses on the activities of these protagonists while they attempt to commit heists being under the pressure of a corrupt government agency and dangerous criminals. The game incorporates an open-world design that lets players freely roam the location’s countryside.
GTA V Gameplay
As we already said, this is an action-adventure video game either played from the first-person perspective or third-person perspective. Players have set objectives and they have to complete linear missions, by progressing through the story gradually. Outside the main missions, players get to explore the open-world environment of the location. The world depicted in GTA V is much higher than what was featured in the previous series. The game allows players to enjoy free access to this open environment without restriction. However, if you are to unlock more gameplay content, you must progress through the game’s main story.
Players in GTA use melee attacks, explosives, and firearms to combat enemies. They can swim, run, jump to navigate from one place to another. To accommodate the map’s size, the game has incorporated different vehicle types which weren’t previously present in the preceding sequels. While the game’s fighting continues, a cover system and an auto-aim system can be put to use against enemies. In case of health damage caused to players, their health meter would gradually increase to its half-point.
Every character in the game can use 8 different skills. These skills represent their abilities in Google and different areas like driving, fighting, shooting, etc. Though the skills can be enhanced and improved with due practice, each character has skills expertise by default.
When the game was released, it gained universal acclamation from major critics and gamers. The game is currently Metacritic’s sixth-best rated video game. What’s most likable about the game is its multiple lead character formula. Its heist mission design is also praiseworthy. So is its presentation. However, some didn’t like the game’s characters and story. No matter what, GTA V is exceptionally well designed and fun to play.
