Grand Theft Auto V (Pre-Owned)
This sprawling open-world action title tells the stories of three criminals who come together to pull off a series of daring heists in a dazzlingly realized parody of Southern California. The highly acclaimed title lets players enjoy unprecedented freedom as they drive, fly, and jet-ski across a meticulously detailed world imbued with the series’ signature outrageous humor.
Players can switch freely between the characters Michael, Franklin, and Trevor, each of which has their own missions and agendas. In addition to the character-switching shenanigans, the GTA series’ core action and car-jacking activities has been tuned up with improved gun controls and better car handling.
The game’s impressively detailed world lets players run amok through an over-the-top version of Southern California, including Los Angeles, that re-creates many of the region’s landmarks and neighborhoods. The streets are alive with activity, where complex interactions between police, criminals, pedestrians, and traffic play out constantly even before the player gets involved.
GTA V boasts a robust online component with its own missions, activities, and progression separate from the single-player game. Players can amass wealth and purchase increasingly flashy vehicles and lodgings, or spend their time racing on streets that wind around the coast outside the city.
The game boasts two extraordinary soundtracks: one, created by Tangerine Dream and other artists, plays during missions and over menu screens; the other, a sprawling collection of familiar tracks by artists ranging from Elton John to Kendrick Lamar, plays over 17 in-game radio stations heard while driving or piped into diverse in-game locations.
