'Grand Theft Auto V'
Sony PlayStation 3 (Xbox 360)
ESRB rating: Mature
Review rating: 5.0 stars
"GTA 3" may not have been the first 3-D open sandbox game, but for most players it was the first experience they had with the genre. Since then, the series has become so wildly popular that many people actually call in sick to work whenever a new game is released. Now "Grand Theft Auto V" has been unleashed, and it's by far the best open sandbox game available on any system.
Unlike past games in the series, the plot for "GTA V" is both deep and convoluted. For starters, players are able to play three different characters and switch between them. Most of the time each character does his own thing, but sometimes they team up to perform dangerous yet profitable heists. Eventually, they will be pitted against each other, and it's up to the player to decide how the final events play out.
