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.

*Vice City, It's Still 24 Carrot Gold*

Beautiful graphics, fast paced and intense yet smooth gameplay, excellent soundtrack consisting of some of the electric 80s greatest hits and an engaging character and story line.

♥️ I love this game. It really brings out the heart in Grand Theft Auto. ♥️

Me personally, and you can call me what you want, I've spent almost 56 hours on this game. I've 💯% completed it and I can promise you that every main mission and side mission is well put together and very engaging.

Ray Liotta did an amazing job whilst voicing Tommy Vercetti. He plays a likable, quick-witted and temperamental Italian American scarface-style gangster who wants more out of life than running around for those in higher places. Tommy is definitely my favorite Grand Theft Auto protagonist so far.

The city is bustling with activity and personality, every man or woman walking the streets has their own dialogue and story, giving the game a realistic feel. The cars are stylish and shiny and every engine purrs like a kitten. The golden beaches stretch for miles and the waters are still and blue. The buildings are tall and colorful whilst the echoing sound of muffled music from nearby nightclubs blasts through the city.

I just loved every second of every hour that I put into this game and I thank Rockstar for bringing it to iOS. Keep it up Rockstar.

Massive Bereavment


I loved this game 12 years ago when I first played it and this conversion is great. You have to be willing to play around with the settings and control layout but it works fine once you do, I've found a few missions I remember less awkward this time round. It has one of the best soundtracks, characters and story lines of any of the GTAs with a cast list you'd expect from a Hollywood blockbuster. Like all GTAs you have loads of side missions and stuff to find and although it shows it's age when compared to GTA 4 and 5 it's still a pleasure to play through. Given the pace at which mobile/tablet tech is advancing I can't wait to see GTA4 and Red Dead Redemption hit the market and looking at the progress Rockstar has made at converting games to touchscreen I have every faith they will do it brilliantly.


iPad Pro 10.5 freezing frames. I want my money back!

I have this on my iPad Pro 10.5 and this device should play such an old game with ease. The game keeps freezing for a fraction of a second, and sometimes up to a couple of seconds very regularly. Having looked through the reviews others are experiencing this on the 10.5 iPad also. I have spent money on many more rockstar games with no issue, but I can’t play this like it is so I would like my money back please. Rockstar please tell me how I do this as your game in this instance is not fit for purpose!

Edit:- So it didn’t work properly on my IPad so I try my IPhone 8 Plus. Works for the first 15 minutes of gameplay then the freezing and the bugs are just a complete joke. This must an issue with the latest iOS. If Rockstar are not going to update this game then don’t sell it you thieves. I want my money back from Apple/Rockstar!! How do I do this??????? I will take this to an ombudsman mark my words!!
