As this review i made is edited" kinda thought itd be better to give more detail, Ive played all these games-> vegas, new orleans, rio, miami vindication, urban crime, 9mm, and west coast hustle. West coast hustle is like" kinda weird because when you pause the game it makes a glitchy noise repeatedly. 9mm is highly detailed which is a good thing but at the same time it is extremely hard to get use to. Urban crime is basically a remaster and later released version of miami vindication. Miami vindication ive never beaten because its more complicated in alot of ways that is hard to explain but i am at 94% of game completion right now. This one aka rio is the most advanced gta category game created by this developer and provides more stuff than the rest. New orleans even though was alittle longer ago than recently released is kinda awkward because of the graphics and how enclosed the city in the game is another words theres not much stuff you can do like vegas. Vegas is a good one but they need to add safehouses you can buy, even a garage would improve it.

Needs an Update


Gameloft please update this game some things you should add more missions a paint shop more variety of cars on the road: semi truck(not a little u-haul truck), tow truck, different types of police cars not just the Crown Vic version and The Z.U.V, the Iron Horse, MC4 Firestorm
Also add a stock market and/or real estate so you can have a way to make substantial amounts of money after you have completed all the missions because I have robbed the bank about 500 times and still I'm broke oh and could you add a building map like on Gangstar Vegas where when you walk in a building and hit your map it is of the building also more air vehicles like the Hyvel and parachutes and the aqua jetpack also consider adding daily rewards this would be the best thing ever and consider adding some of the vehicles from Gangstar Vegas to Rio because I love Rio but the graphics and controls in Gangstar Vegas aren't as good as they are in Rio more weapon like pacifist SMG i really just hate Gamgstar Vegas. Gangstar rio is just so much better but just needs update possibly add aliens and UFOs also

Need more updates


Excellent Excellent Excellent Game!!! Always using it to make time go by quick, best best best truly the best game I have ever played!!! But needs a lot of updates, hasn't been updated for a long time. Last time it was updated was in October of 2014 and now it is almost 2016 and nothing has ever been updated. Need more areas of the map to be added, more roads, cars, people, boats and buildings. Most of all must must must add more cars that you are able to buy with the game money that you have and have your crew get into other cars to follow you where ever you go to back u up in a mission, must add a private car garage with details and paint jobs and rims that you can change on the cars and onto the cars. Otherwise very happy that I found this game and have been enjoying playing on it a lot. Best Game App Ever!!!!!
