IGN has the world's first hands-on with Grand Theft Auto 5. They got to play for about 3 to 4 hours! Here are some juicy tidbits from their early review/preview:
New! This is a big week for new content. Rockstar is going to give us media previews! That is the closest thing we're going to get to a review, so be excited for this news! This coming Thursday August 15th is the unveil so stay tuned for full details!
If you want the newest review/preview, read this CNET GTA V preview. With a release date of September 17th, it's most likely that in the first part of September there will be some reviews posted. Sneak peaks and previews will all be part of the hype. Some of the big websites like IGN for example will most likely get limited hands-on in the weeks leading up to release. There will be a flood of information so don't worry.
New details emerge. Unlike any Grand Theft Auto game in the past, this time you will not be controlling one protagonist, but this time you will be playing 3 different protagonists! You will be able to switch characters during missions and throughout the game which will keep the pace of the game moving quickly. Game Informer had a chance to see a preview of the game and their last page really says it all.
From what they've seen, it's being described as a big change to the GTA franchise and that the three protagonist gameplay feature is a big unknown as to the reaction fans will have. I'm a bit puzzled by their take, but this concept is new and when there is change and new gameplay brought into an previously successful game franchise, it can be a gamble. In this case Rockstar has chosen to really push the boundaries. I do wonder to what extent this 3 protagonist feature caused the long delays in releaing GTA 5. Rockstar would never admit whether they missed their intended target, but by all accounts this was an extremely challenging and time consuming direction to take. Keep in mind that they had to get 3 character stories to work together and in the past they just had to worry about just 1 character's story. If GTA 6 doesn't have a multiple protagonist gameplay, I guess we will clearly have our answer from Rockstar about whether the change of gameplay is worth the extra effort to pull it off.
Do you really need a review for the next Grand Theft Auto game? You aren't sure whether the next game will be worth your money? Of course it will be the best investment. Yes we will provide a review when the game is released, but more than anything we want to provide the sneak peak previews and hands-on gameplay previews that will start showing up online as we build towards the eventual release date.
Now that there is an official statement from Rockstar that the game is coming Spring 2013, we can expect a great deal of new details to emerge. The actual reviews won't be coming until the weeks leading up to that release date, so hang tight for that. I think what's going to happen is that in the months leading up to the release, various high profile video game websites will be able to visit Rockstar and will get a chance to play the game or at least see it being played. That's as close to an early GTA V review that we will get. The same thing happened with Halo 4 that there were many details of the gameplay during an early preview where some writers got a sneak peak. The big websites like IGN are going to get those advance reviews. That's the best chance we have right now to know what the game is all about. It's going to be fun in 2013 as the excitement builds. I can't wait!
When the time comes, this page will feature a full GTA 5 review round up. That means we will list summaries on what all the big gaming sites have to say about the game. We imagine at first these reviews will be more preview, but heck we're not fussy. The fact is the big video game websites get first cracks at new games. They get to play the game before any of us. So we expect these previews and reviews to be mouth drooling fantastic! As these start hitting the web we will have full links and details here! Do you need to be conviced to by the next Grand Theft Auto game?
