Storyline

Niko Bellic, a veteran from the Bosnian war who struggles with memories of the horrors of war, migrates to Liberty City in search of a better life as well as to escape the memories of his past. His cousin, Roman, tells Niko of how great life is in Liberty City prior to his arrival. But Roman's stories turn out to be false. Instead, Roman struggles with paying off debt to other mobsters, and this puts both men, especially Niko, in a bad spot as Niko ends up having to work with mobsters in order to scrape up a living in the city. However, Niko and Roman are forced to leave their home in Hove Beach as Russian mobster, Dmitri Rascalov, puts their lives at stake. Will Niko be able to get the dreams he wishes that he wanted to have in Liberty City, or will he have to live through his memories again? Written by Sam

Trivia

The first of the series to feature sexual acts actually being performed by a prostitute on the protagonist. Other Grand Theft Auto games featured the player and the prostitute sitting in the front seats, motionless, as the player's vehicle rocked to and fro. GTA V took it a step forward by having the strippers being topless when giving lapdances to the three protagonists. The protagonists of GTA V can also take some of the strippers home for a booty call and the strippers number will end up being saved in the protagonist's phone. See more »

Quotes

Dimitri Rascalov: You know, if there is one thing that I have learned, it is that we must obey the rules of the game. We can pick the game, Niko Bellic. But we cannot change the rules.

the best game ever
29 April 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

i just bought this game today, and its awesome! the script is very well written and the voice acting is great. the gameplay is very nice and the targeting from previous GTA's has improved.

The game features a great cover system similar to that from Uncharted and Gears of War.

The graphics are very realistic and detailed sometimes it looks just like real life.

The online mode is really fun. you're with 16 guys in Liberty City and you can kill, each other, help each other and do missions together

I recommend this game to all PS3 and X360 owners this is really the best game for those consoles until the moment
