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.

Still a lot of fun after ten years.
If you are able to take your time adapting to the new touch controls, Vice City will be an extremely satisfying experience whose charm is still a long way away from fading.
The game's cool 80s neon style retains is really striking despite the ageing graphics thanks to the vibrant colour palette, an amazing cast of characters played by star studded cameos, a fun soundtrack and an anarchic spirit in the game's wild missions.
The story is not worth mentioning - this is a straight up Scarface fantasy starring the dude from Goodfellas and the mechanics deliver in giving me this experience in the most satisfying way. Causing mayhem and making a clean getaway is especially fun, finding secrets and the property management will keep you interested.
One of the best games ever made. Take time getting used to the touch screen controls and you will really get a lot out of this. Play it just to hear Dennis Hopper as a porno director obsessed with a giant shark.
Hell yeah, the best
Many hours were spent playing this game when it came out on ps2 so long ago, I spent all my time playing this on iPad in a nostalgic state. Not only is it the most memorable game from my childhood but it doesn't lose it's charm and it brings back fond memories. I would suggest buying this game for anyone that enjoyed Gta:VC as a kid or teenager, the control are adjustable and enjoyable, easy to get used to and the graphics of this game on the likes of iPad 2 are unbelievable compared with the original. I would emphasise that Rockstar have placed a considerable amount of time on this game which is so cheap to purchase from app store; to make the original fans happy, don't let them down and buy it, I have beaten the game now but still thoroughly enjoy playing side missions etc. I couldn't suggest this game strongly enough and it is the best iPad application I have ever bought.
Grand App Auto
The controls work really well, the gameplay is spot on and the sounds and music are just like the original versions on PS2 and PC. A few things which makes this app go down to 4 stars:
1 - You don't lose your weapons if you die or get busted.
2 - If you fail a mission, you are asked to retry the mission instead of having to drive all the way back to the mission start point.
3 - There are no cheats for this game. We had a blast cheating back then, so I am disappointed to see that there are no cheats. Simple commands like swipe up, down, left, right would work too.
4 - There are a few glitches that were not in the original versions, for example, the analog stick wouldn't move at one point even if I touched the screen, even if I close the app, it still does it. (only when getting out of the car, and turning the power off removes the glitch)
Fix at least 2 of these problems and it's 5 stars from me. I know you can do it.
