In this manner, Michael gets involved in a criminal intrigue he cannot easily escape from. The circumstances force him to abandon the life of the reformed and law-abiding citizen and awaken again the bad guy within.
Grand Theft Auto V – the Open World
The setting of Grand Theft Auto V is an (almost) open world. Thus the game is a sandbox, which allows the player for a free exploration of game’s locations. Most of the action takes place in an imaginary city of Los Santos, which is a nearly perfect copy of Los Angeles. It is surrounded by the countryside of California with its typical deserts and mountains.
The players who are not new to the Grand Theft Auto series should be familiar with the world of the fifth installment. Los Santos was also the setting in GTA: San Andreas. Anyone who finished that game should recognize all the locations of Los Santos.
The Mechanics of the Game
In GTA V Rockstar has introduced an innovative gameplay. The game mechanics allow for playing three characters at the same time. The main hero is Michael but his old partner in crime Trevor Philips decides to help him with his trouble and they continue to cooperate. The third person is Franklin, a young poor black guy determined to improve his financial situation, the faster the better. This attitude quickly leads him onto the path of crime.
The player can take control of any of the three protagonists while the change of the hero can happen at any time. It can happen either before the missions or even during them when such change can have a major impact on the mission success or failure. Such an event happens early in the game when we save Michael by quickly switching to the second character.
We are also given a character development model. We can change the character’s outlook but also gain new skills which facilitate our progress into the game.
