Five years ago, Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas, a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.
Now, it’s the early 90’s. Carl’s got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.

Ratings and Reviews
Doesn’t port well
The driving is just awful. The analog stick is totally unresponsive, missions like the driving school were hard enough on PS4 with a proper controller on this it is impossible. Made it to San Francisco now stuck with 4 different mission routes. I am stuck simply because the touch screen controls make it so I cannot do any 4 of the missions I need to advance. On one I am expected to drive behind 4 bikes and “grab” packages off them - except the touch screen is so unresponsive this is impossible - for some reason the package grab button is above the analog stick so you can either direct the bike or perform the task but you can’t do both at the same time. Drive bys are also basically impossible too for this reason as you either accelerate or drive, I don’t have three hands so I can’t accelerate, drive and shoot at the same time. The targeting system for shooting with a touch screen makes this game worse than the Vice City port, it hinders rather than helps. The racing missions take hours because the driving controls are awful. Because the analog stick only appears when you touch the screen it can take forever to activate it.
This used to be one of my favourite games of all time but they have managed to ruin it for me.
Unlimited Fun in an Open World
My first experience of GTA was GTA IV on the Xbox with Nico Bellic. I remember thinking that it was (at the time) just the most fun game ever...it ticked all the boxes, with storyline missions, side quests, a good story & importantly HOURS (days!) of game play.
Anyway, I’ve been without the Xbox for some years and missed the experience; I never thought GTA would transfer onto the phone but I decided to give it a shot a few weeks ago. I was NOT disappointed with this. Playing as CJ and manoeuvring out of the ghetto, with the usual mix of bent cops, shady types, treacherous allies...it’s just brilliant. The three different cities on the map, the variety of vehicles (the flight! Though I can’t say I love the plane missions!)...it’s just so rich, so fun & so engaging. I’m in a second play through now and have found things I didn’t the first time.
Easily 5* - I wish the other GTAs available were as good as this one!
Massive traffic glitches and freezes after the latest update !
Although the instructions on how to proceed with the game progress after the latest progress have been strictly followed, I experience massive traffic glitches - no matter what the traffic settings are (light/classic/heavy), all the surround cars drive at supersonic speed, appear spontaneously right into your vehicle, collide with each other massively, going backwards, which makes gaming nearly impossible! The game seems to be much heavier for the my iPhone 5 operative memory as there are occasional freezes during the game too (there is plenty of free space on my device, other heavy games play well).
Neither traffic glitches, nor freezes were experienced before the latest update!!!
Please release a fix to the said bugs asap, or please let me know how to revert back to the previous version which worked perfectly well.
