GTA 5 - Test Video: Why is the best the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5
Be honest: Is there anything more cool than in the sunset with a muscle car along the coast road to heat, while "blaring Carry on Wayward Son" by Kansas on the radio? Little or nothing we say with utter conviction. GTA 5 is brimming with details, it pelts a formally with exciting missions, but in the end are's realization that relatively little moments like these exhilarating ride along the coastal road that make only one great whole thereof.
namely get as we see it only every few years and feel a gaming experience. In the case of GTA 5 now crazily for the third time. First published in September 2013 at the old-gen consoles, Grand Theft Auto 5 appeared then the end of 2014 on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. April 14, we PC gamers can finally cruising through the streets of Los Santos and participate in the screwed-up lives of the protagonists Michael, Franklin and Trevor. And are delighted that the developer Rockstar Games has learned from the mistakes of the ailing PC version of GTA. 4
No new GTA 4
With problems, as we had with the previous (patronizing by additional programs, incorrect program starts, extreme hunger hardware, the former ATI graphics cards almost unplayable), we do not have to wrangle us this time. Mack entirely free but also a GTA 5 is not because the potential problems and little problems and corresponding solutions, see our Topic Overview.

Once you have logged in, can be the main game experience even in offline mode (for GTA Online, you need a permanent connection to the Social Club) and the technical without any further obstacles. And no monster computer. Already on a regular middle-class PC can be Grand Theft Auto 5 will enjoy nearly full detail glory, no matter whether a Radeon or Nvidia chip is responsible for graphics. A gamepad we do not need the way. Not at any second. But more on that later.
About the plot everything should now have been said, and in each case more than once. But for completeness and for all those who have lived in the past year and a half under a rock, here a brisk SUMMARY: Unlike its predecessors, we experience the story of GTA 5 with three different protagonists: Michael, Franklin and Trevor, all criminals.
Michael's daughter has a demonstration at the talent show "Fame or Shame". I do not like the dad.
Trevor and Michael are old pals (Michael Trevor referred at one point as his best friend) who jointly withdrawn bank robberies years ago. Franklin is a small-time crook who Michael is running randomly across. Michael, disappointed by his son, sees a kind Ersatzsprössling in Franklin and takes him under his wing. The three slide over the story deeper and deeper into a morass of gangster and private problems, from which there are three possible (education) are ways on relatively unspectacular end.
At the industrial port we hire us as a crane operator in order to spy on a ship.
Some of the missions we undertake with all three, some with only two protagonists, often we are also traveling alone. The latter especially at the beginning when the fates have three not so closely intertwined the. Which of the three characters we control depends even on the situation, sometimes we decide by simply switch to our request protagonists. One of the core elements of the game are the large-scale raids, which always a planning phase (situation spy) and then an acquisition phase (vehicles, gadgets) precedes before it finally goes above a prescribed plan A or B to the point.
An early example: The raid a jeweler can be executed with brute force of arms or with the support of anesthetic gas through the ventilation shafts. The choice among the procedures alone increases the replay value of GTA 5 enormous. But smaller variables contribute as the fact that some missions can be initiated by one or the other character times and so each has a different beginning.
Michael was persuaded by his wife Amanda to a yoga class. The gangster presents something hüftsteif.
So we come either as Michael home and catch our wife and tennis coach in Flagranti, whereupon the Gigolo (only in underpants) jumps out the window and runs away. but we solve the mission as Franklin made, by visiting Michael, we only see how the teacher is sailing out the window and lands at our feet, the scene is missing in the house.
The installation also GTA online lands on your hard drive. Underlying this is nothing more than a kind of MMO for GTA 5. How to build at the beginning of a character together, which is then taken for some tutorial missions from Lamar (Franklin's friend from the main game) under the wing. After that, the game leaves us in the open world, where we commit thefts, racing, other players shoot overboard, procure new weapons to us new and better clothed (bulletproof vests!), Buy us an apartment, so basically much do of what we already know of Michael and Co..
At level twelve finally we may also participate so big, orchestrated raids for two to four players at the so-called Heists. The run similar to the raids from the main game, with planning, procurement phase and the actual use. Fittingly, it is also always brings Michaels hacker friend Lester us the orders closer.

The Heists is best used with a team of friends and not with any random companions. The person who starts the mission in his apartment, at the same time, the host of the meeting. And he has to pay in advance for the attack, which costs 12,000 to 100,000 dollars. If you are traveling with buddies, it makes sense to distribute the costs in advance. Who but ever successfully completed a few of these raids, has to make its finances not too worried more.
The rewards range of $ 100,000 for the small tutorial Heist up to ten million dollars if they can overcome all attacks consecutively with the same team on the highest difficulty without someone dies there. However, you should ensure extremely plenty of time. A single coup of the larger design can beat loose with two hours of impact. but the pay off normally, the Heists make namely darn much fun!
