4.0 out of 5 stars 9 years since San Andreas !, 19 Sept. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto V (PS3) (Video Game)
So GTA San Andreas was a large step forward for the series and GTA 4 was arguably a backward step for the series (what no planes !). So does GTA 5 offer anything new over San Andreas I ask myself? I check the wish list and everything seems to be ticked - I read the reviews posted so far and cant argue with any of them (the good or the bad).

After GTA4 I'm surprised I bought this game - it was my birthday a few weeks ago so this seemed like a good purchase - particularly since the trailers offered me the San Andreas experience ! I'm pleased I did - it is definitely more engaging than GTA4 - I've stood on the beach watching the sun set and the lights from the pier twinkling on the ocean - nice. I've smashed my way into the airport and stole a private jet - flying between buildings seemed to cause turbulence - interesting - my landing on the freeway didn't end as well as I hoped. I've driven some fast cars at top speed and hit a tree - why could I still drive away after that - I should have been sent to the hospital or at least the car should have been a write off - odd (my passengers didn't seem to fussed neither).

So I have mixed views - its a great game but could have been better (if you use San Andreas as the benchmark). The constant disc reads mentioned in other reviews are concerning me - the cynical side of me wonders whether this will cause my PS3 to die in the next month or so - increasing the chances of me purchasing a PS4 when it comes out (which I had postponed to next year due to GTA5). No android iFRUIT app at the moment (really? its takes ages to get into the apple store and seconds to get into Google Play) and no online gameplay. My score doesn't reflect these admissions (as they will be here soon enough) but it does reflect the lack of obvious improvements over San Andreas given the time Rockstar had - its been 9 years since San Andreas !!
