    "I think GTA is probably the best sandbox gaming franchises in the market at the moment and Grand Theft Auto V is a great addition. I have always liked rooting for the bad guy in movies and this game lets me live the life of a criminal without the legal repercussions. "

    "The Xbox One version of this game is less sandbox-like than its PC counterpart with mods, but it has a similar experience while being enjoyable on the couch. The world is very open, providing countless hours of gameplay. This is one of my favorites."

    "This game is pure awesomeness! Nothing beats being able to take out a bunch of zombies with a ton of high power weapons. Amazing graphics and a great story line. The only complaint I have about the game play is that it can be a little repetitious in some parts; however, overall this is an incredibly fun game."

    "Terraria starts with standard platform graphics and then turns it up a notch to be really beautiful and impressive. However, short of the graphics, I found the gameplay to be somewhat anticipatory and less than riveting. There was some customization but not a high degree of replay or cooperative play value."
