GTA V on Xbox One – The DVDfever Review

Online count is up from 16 to 30, but my experience wasn’t hitch-free.

I regularly faced connection issues and having to wait to connect again was overly long adding to the frustration. A patch was released on November 22nd, and this update does appear to have fixed the disconnect issues as I was able to play online with out issue after the patch.

Talking of online, for those new to the franchise, the tutorial isn’t well what you’d actually call a tutorial, it’s more of an initiation and can be bewildering to start. Not everyone will have a grumpy teenager to hand (like I was fortunate – or unfortunate – to have) to point out what you need to be doing and what to avoid. Red dots on the maps are bad, and if you’re a noob you’re going to be a fresh meat target to kill for easyXP. There are a number of modes such as death match, races, heists and all are fun once you get the hang of them.

So depending on which camp you fall into depends on whether you will want to purchase the GTA V again. I never finished the game originally, despite owning it on both PS3 & Xbox 360, but I wanted the prettier, definitive version. I’ll probably buy go for the PC version when released, too. That’s if I have a 4K setup…

As for me, it’s just one of them games you want to have in your collection for when your online pals, on whichever format you’re on, say “You got GTA V?”
