Grand Theft Auto V hits streets in brash debut
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Unabashedly brutal Grand Theft Auto V hits the streets on Tuesday in a sequel that promises to enthrall fans of the blockbuster videogame franchise.
Rockstar Games spent five years crafting the new installment and the time has paid off for gamers, according to a slew of reviews giving the title top marks.
"GTA V has been worth the five-year wait," said computerandvideogames.com digital manager John Houlihan.
"You can really see the maturity in this version, the graphics look sensational - it really is like being in a virtual copy of LA." GTA V is set in a fictional city of Los Santos based on real-world Los Angeles and its nearby hills and beaches.
