Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
By Rockstar Games
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Welcome back to Vice City. Welcome back to the 1980s.
From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile. Vice City, a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, was one of the most varied, complete and alive digital cities ever created. Combining open-world gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.

Several bugs to be fixed!
I give this game 4 stars for being pretty faithful to the 2002 original. However, there are bugs that need to be fixed.
Firstly, sometimes when I get into a car, he camera doesn't move with it, and stays at the place that I got in the car. I can fix this by pressing the POV button when you are in a car, though. I still would like this fixed.
Secondly, sometimes when I resume a certain save file, the game remains on a black screen and I have to reenter the game. I do this, only for the black screen to happen again on the same save file.
Thirdly, there are times when I shoot my gun in a car, and it won't shoot. Only one shot will work, and the gun will stop working.
Fourthly, sometimes in general after a few shots, the gun doesn't shoot anymore. Don't know if this is intentional or if the original did the same.
Fifthly, if a car explodes and the screen gets a shaky effect, sometimes it keeps shaking, even minutes after the explosion.
Sixthly, when I drive a car up a ramp and the game goes into a slo-mo mode, the camera never goes back to the car and the game is still in slo-mo speed.
A lot of issues to be fixed. Fix these, and I will give 5 stars. Thx you.
Grand Best Auto
I personally think that this is the best GTA game in the franchise. This game has free roam, 80's nostalgia, and a great storyline. This game has what a lot of other games lacked back in the early 2000's. I really hope that games today will have a great impact on the upcoming games to be released, like this game did with games today. My only complaint about this games is the control style. I know that a lot of other people would say that the graphics are outdated, but I don't think that a game should be based on its graphics, it's based on it's impact it has on the player. I really hope that Rockstar Games will keep trying to improve the gaming industry. Overall I give this game 9/10. It is a great game and if you have never played and you're an open minded person I strongly suggest to give this game a try.
GTA series must-have for iPhone
I see the GTA series for the iPhone Plus as a must have. It’s a great price, classic game, great game, on the palm of your hands. The downside is the well-known touchscreen limitations of the gunplay control scheme, which isn’t Rockstar’s or any game developer company’s fault, but hopefully in time the games can get updates and improvements. Other Grand Theft Auto-like games on mobile devices, such as Gangstar Vegas and Gangstar New Orleans, have similar, but better and improved auto-aim control scheme than the GTA series on mobile devices. I hope Rockstar can learn a little bit about those two games and update their gunplay controls, although unfortunately, Rockstar has already abandoned its GTA series on mobile devices (they’re not going to get updates). It’s still a great buy, I recommend them.
