Push Square: "The best and worst thing about Rockstar games is that they’re different. As noted in our review, Grand Theft Auto V is an exceptional adventure, with the kind of attention to detail that you simply wouldn’t find in any other release. However, it’s also letdown – no matter how slightly – by the fact that it’s a bit of a pain to play. The combat mechanics are a mess, the controls are less intuitive than a MicroKorg without labels, and the game occasionally gets bogged down in its own city simulation aspirations. The same criticism is true of Grand Theft Auto Online’s character creation component."
