What's New in Version 1.3.2
Various stability and bug fixes.
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.
A game that just can't seem to age.
Now, before I get to my review I just wanted to let you know that I'm a huge GTA fan. I've played all of them from 1 through 5. Each game seems to have so much packed into one game, it's crazy! Now let's get started. Graphics seem to be a big problem with the gaming community (for some reason) but I really don't care about them, but yes the graphics aren't very good. But c'mon, it's a 10 year old game. Did I mention your also playing it on your phone? You really can't judge the graphics knowing that this is a console game and looks just as good on the IOS! The gameplay is pretty smooth, however there are a few lags when you first start up the game. Glitches can be found throughout the map. The story itself is very good, NO it's not immersive and NO, it's not the best story ever. But for a game about robbing and hi jacking cars, you shouldn't expect much out of the story. The open world is very fun! You can go around messing with people or go jumping off cliffs with your car. Or maybe you just wanna cruise around listening to head radio. Whatever you want to do, it's there! It's an incredibly fun game and for it's age it still runs just as good as a console game would!
A fitting port
Grand Theft Auto III changed how we play video-games forever. Although it's age prevents it from having the realistic details of Grand Theft Auto V and the over the top anarchy of Saints Row IV, Grand Theft Auto III still has enough charm and originality to win over even modern gamers who think they've done it all in the sandbox genre (the mission "Mike Lips Last Lunch" is a perfect example of this). The smaller size city actually benefits the atmosphere on the small screen, coupled with the updated graphics and gritty shadows. While cheesy voice acting and dated audio quality may come off as unintentionally humorous, it still fits well with the zany satire Grand Theft Auto III presents in it's radio stations and advertisements. The only time immersion is ever truly broken is when the touch controls cause you to crash across the map and when the audio cuts out for no reason. It's not a perfect port, but it's still a very good one, just like the game itself. Grand Theft Auto III isn't just a game, it's a time capsule of the early 2000's and late 90's, featuring a world obsessed with crime, reality TV and angry parents who thought video games ruined the minds of children (which is just as true today as it was then).
