Released: September 2013
Back for another dose of guns, drugs, death and ladies of the night. We’re certain GTA: V will offer all the gory glory that we expect. Offering the chance to explore the whole of Los Santos and the areas surrounding, GTA: V offers a map much larger than any previous. Not to mention it promises multiple 1st player characters, so you can get right into the heart of the games core personas. We hope that not too much of the original game concepts have been lost in the attempt to keep the GTA series fresh, but we think that would be a struggle to achieve in itself.

Going on what the game refers to as ‘Revenge Missions’ this game sees you inside the corrupt ‘New York City Liberty Dome’ created by a corrupt higher power, Crysis 3 will offer all the twists and turns you expect.
