San Andreas in 2014

It's obvious GTA III in 2011 after 10 years. Vice City in 2012 after 10 years, so that means San Andreas will be out by 2014. But it'll be a challenge because San Andreas is a huge game to get on your 4 inch phone.

And for those of you asking for new stuff to add to the game. Please just shut up and stop acting like stuck up 6 year olds. There making this game as close as they can to the original console. So there not adding or changing much.

As for me, this and vice city are in my Top 10 iPhone Apps. Amazing Graphics that put me in mind of 10 years ago. The only downside is that there is an occasional crash or two that make me lose about 20 minutes worth of progress. But these are rare enough not to spoil the game.

My only warning is don't get this game if you are below an iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4, or iPad 2, cause I've tried on my old iPod Touch 3rd Gen 64gb and it was impossible, too slow, too glitchy, & it would crash after 5 minutes. No matter what I did I couldn't even get to the first mission. However on my iPhone 4S 32gb. It's a dream come true. Absolutely Smooth

Recommend it to anyone whose played this game before on the PS2 or Original Xbox, or whoever is just into screwing around and causing chaos.


The game plays great so far, looks beautiful on this iPhone 5 4-inch retina display. I do not have a single complain except realizing I have a GTA habit of using the character on foot and punching vehicles that pass by and watch them speed off or try to beat me up and I can't do that here. Not a problem there, just saying, would be nice. But if you played this when you were younger, on the PS2 or original Xbox and had fun, it'll bring back memories. I hope there's a chance that they bring LCS and VCS on mobile devices too (I am aware that they weren't all that but it's part of the GTA series and would like to see it happen, or imagine GTA 1 or 2). Yes, I do agree that the buttons are difficult to get a hold of but there are options that let you resize and rearrange them. They did their best with it, otherwise it wouldn't be in the App Store or Google Play for us to enjoy on the go. Just think about it, they also added the option to let you play your music as part of the radio when in a vehicle (by creating a playlist called GTA3) or just play it over the game. Keep it up Rockstar, and thank you.

P.S.: there is a tilt option for driving called accelerometer for those who prefer that.

Honest gamers review

Update: Reinstalled on my new iphone 4s.
Freezes after about 3 minutes every time. I see other 4s comments of it not working. Useless.

Yes, believe it or not i'm one of the few people who have played games feverishly without playing GTA before. Never really interested me. But for a $.99 thought I could take a flyer. First, they crammed a lot into the game so far. You can never go wrong with that... unless the controls are atrocious. I disregarded all the reputable gaming site reviews that said the controls are horrendous and they are right. Driving is fine. It's when you're on your feet that you can't shoot or fight the person you want. Maddenly frustrating. But I can live with that since I've played iphone apps since their release.

What is the major problem is there is no rhyme or reason for its existance. They need a hint or tutorial area since I can't find out what I'm suppose to do. Occasionally I have a taget in my map but I can seriously wander hours without any goals. I usually end up stealing a cab and taking people wherever.... boring or stealing a cop car and stopping vigilantes. Boring. Hope there is more to it but after playing 3 hours I haven't done much but be a taxi driver.
