Grand Theft Auto V slammed by Dubai residents
DUBAI: Residents have criticised an upcoming video game that they claim does not paint Dubai in a fair light and could well damage its international reputation.
In Grand Theft Auto V: City of Life Edition, due for release later this month, gamers are encouraged to drive at reckless speeds on the stunningly rendered streets of Dubai.
“It’s absolutely disgusting,” Mindy Breadbasket, an outraged mother of three, told reporters. “In the game, there is a very limited selection of four-wheel drive cars to choose from, whereas in the real Dubai we have pretty much everything, right up to the latest Range Rover Evoke or Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.”
