Fantastically Made for Mobile


This GTA-style electronic game is free-to-play and fantastically made for mobile. The gun-play control scheme is very well designed for a mobile device (which naturally lacks a second analog stick). I really believe that this gun-play control scheme should be added as an OPTION in the game settings of all (third-person shooter) mobile games.
The GTA ports have similar, but inferior, gun-play Control Scheme, which is disappointing. Gangstar New Orleans also has updated better graphics than the GTA ports, and specifically has the feel of especially being made for a mobile device, which works here. This game is very enjoyable on the go, but most importantly, the controls are much better than many other third person shooter mobile games. . .
Too many people unfortunately complain about all the existing gun play control schemes on mobile devices. They need to come in with an expectation that this is not a console nor a physical controller, and constructively critique it accordingly, and readjust their views.
I just really think that this is how GTA-style mobile games should be made.
One of the downsides to this game is that there does not exist multiple savings slots, so once you start the game you can never restart the game new or fresh (as an option), even if you delete the game app and reinstall it.

Half a Game


It’s great for a free app, don’t get me wrong, but there is so much lag in-game that some of the modes are unplayable. All of the driving levels are near impossible (especially the motorcycle ones) and the steering is difficult to manage because it is hard to correct your path when the game is lagging. Also, there is the issue where your player will just randomly freeze in the middle of a mission and an ad will pop up (yes the clock still runs) so getting gold or silver on a mission is out of the question. This is a problem since you need to do very well on the majority of the missions to unlock new turfs. I was just wondering if anyone had the same problems? I use an iPhone6 and I’ve had it for less than half a year, I close down out of all currently used apps, my phone is typically over 50%, and my data storage isn’t even a 1/10 full. By the way, if you thought regular lag was bad, don’t even try this game on Low Battery Mode. :(. I used to like this game and I think the new updates are a cool spin on progressing through the game, but sadly for me it has become unplayable due to ingame lag.

Really good!


I want multiplayer really bad also make events much more enjoyable and also event energy takes way to long to recharge! It's so infuriating and getting 4 star items should be easier I've played since weak 1 and still don't have any I play a iPhone 5s and no crashing has happened to me well actually it happens occasionally but like 1 a hour and it's not bothering tbh also the gameplays fun but make grenades and health kits accessible with gold pls and its overall 8 out of 10 but it's really fun where it gets things right. I feel like the odd man out because the games not glitchy for me but cosmetic/gun system need to be better like a gun store and easier collectibles wow they actually fixed the cosmetic system and and the pay to win aspect also easier rewards it’s not perfect but they even put in more story! OMG! It’s from 8 out of 10 to 9.5 out of ten!
