Below are some prerelease media reviews :
- “The world simply looks more natural. From the way fog causes an eerie glow to cover the sky when sun shines through it, or sweatier faces boast a more noticeable reflective sheen, leafy shadows flutter about the woods, or the way lamp and torchlight flickers in someone’s eyes, the already-vibrant world manages to pull you into it just that much further.” – IGN
- “It feels like Rockstar is showing off – it looks breathtaking…It’s hard not to talk about it without sounding hyperbolic but it’s one of the best looking things I’ve seen in recent memory.” – GameSpot
- “The combination of 60fps performance and mouselook significantly changes the way the game feels to play, which to me matters more than visual improvements to a game that looked great already.” – PC Gamer
- “One of the best looking games I’ve ever seen on a monitor.” – GamesRadar
- “Photo mode and graphics upgrades make this the definitive version.” – VG247
