iPhone Screenshots


OPTIMIZED FOR iPHONE 4! High-definition graphics that fully utilize the iPhone 4 Retina display.

“This is a game that flaunts a lot of bling - slick visuals, functional controls, challenging missions - and it far surpasses any previous effort at open world gameplay on iPhone. “ (PocketGamer. 8/10, Silver Award).

"The iPhone has so far seen both 2D (Car Jack Streets) and 2.5D (Payback) GTA clones but, as yet, iPhone gamers have not had a fully 3D world in which to wreak the particular sort of inner-city mayhem that has made the genre so popular. Thanks to Gameloft, that's about to change." (Touch Arcade)

"An open-world crime epic is pretty ambitious for the iPhone (…) but it looks like Gameloft has assembled the tech to make it happen" (IGN)

Its okay...


It's an okay game but I mean it could work on some stuff like jumping buttons (regular or over walls) and maybe better run animation. The main character in "Gangstar: West Coast Hustle", Pedro, looks like he just shat himself in the pants because he just can't believe he escaped the Mexican prison. Add more buttons in the game to make it better and not just run and shoot. Add more guns too, I like the simple bank of guns but it can have more like a regular guns store and a heavy weapons gun store. Try to think of ideas that are useful. After all you are a GTA clone so copy some ideas from them. Don't steal their own game ideas full but at least just part of it. Like the heavy weapons gun store can only be unlocked by doing all race mission or whatever crap there is. Fix the sound bug too.

Rio was better


Plz make better vehicles, like planes, and plz make the guy stop running like he crapped himself. Also could you stop the sound glitch, and make better guns and a sprint icon so I can chase after cars and jump over walls and stuff. Plz make the graphics more realistic like gangstar rio and make it be able to turn night. Can u also add some guns like a flamethrower and a motercycle. Plz also make money harder to get. I have more ideas, but I can't think of them off the top of my head. I liked all of your other games like Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, and Gangstar Rio: City of Saints, but this one is one of the worst. I will now rate 5🌟s over and over again.



It is an alright game, but the graphics need work. Just because he's a gangster does not mean he can walk THROUGH trees. There should be more weapons, and it should have weapon upgrades. It's an okay game though, lots of cool missions, don't change that. But the steering in vehicles is incredibly hard because you barely lean it and it crashes into a wall. It's annoying. He needs to walk like a gangster, not like he just got probed. It is over priced, it is only a 2-3 dollar game at the most. But I do play it quite often and get in cop wars. That's always fun. If you want a game like this though, I would highly suggest downloading GTA 3 or GTA Vice City if you want a quality game for a lower price. It's alright, but there is a lot of room to improve.
