This is without a doubt the single greatest police chase in Grand Theft Auto 5
It's been said that the latest graudates of Los Santos Police Academy are some of the finest men and women in blue to have ever walked the streets of the picturesque city by the surf, from the bustling downtown of San Andreas and up to the tumbleweed lined flats of Sandy Shores. If you so much as fire a gunshot in the air, they'll be on you like white on rice in a glass of milk on a paper plate in the snowstorm, and you'll lead them on a cross-state chase where you can only pray to try and elude them. Frankly, the men of the LCPD are Robocop on steroids. That being said, this YouTuber would have to be Clarence Boddiker, crossed with Cain. And on more steroids.
Just getting four stars without the cops busting the proverbial cap in your fleshy behind is a feat in and of itself. Hell, I think I hit four once as was facedown shortly thereafter. But to reach five and then continuously elude not only the police, but the F.I.B, and the army? And looking damn good well doing it by controlling the game's cinematic camera all the while? That's something you'd read about on par with the labors of Hercules.
Things get underway as the player first riles things up by firing a few hundred rounds from a minigun at a gas station, and decimating an arriving squadron of cops cars and helicopters. After that, the chase is on on the slicked lanes of the Great Ocean Highway. From there, using Franklin's special driving abilities, the player heads halfway up Mt. Chiliad before his chase comes to a close care of a well placed bullet while bailing out mid-air from a flaming, formerly top of the line sports car.
From there, it's a few bucks change to the local sawbones, jack a vehicle, and then start the whole thing all over again. See for yourself below.
GTA V centers around three characters performing a number of heists, each with their own reason for doing so: Michael, the career criminal with a mid-life crisis, repo man Franklin, and resident redneck Trevor, definitely the most colorful of the bunch, but also potentially the most dangerous.
The game features one of the biggest maps in the GTA series yet, and like past games, has a massive amount of side missions and objectives to keep gamers busy 'til rapture.
Grand Theft Auto V is out now on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
