Kind of good
I'd say that the game is sort of fun and all but it seems abandoned since rockstar has literally driven all of its attention to Gta 5 and not even taken the smallest consideration to their past games like San Andreas as well as vice city and Gta 4 and finally Gta 3 itself. The missions aren't that bad until you reach S.A.M witch in my opinion is the toughest mission in the game maybe besides the exchange the last one. The storyline though is pretty plain. The character you play as named Claude just goes on a quest for revenge to kill is girlfriend who betrayed him at a bank robbery but somehow gets a pointlessly sidetracked into helping the mafia and later the yakuza whom he later kills one of other leaders. It was the very first Gta of its kind to have a particular view of the character which explains why it didn't do so well. Also when you finish all the missions it's pretty boring. You get a free tank but that's it. You can't own any shops or businesses the tunnel on shoreside vale that your probably wondering if it opens up doesn't in fact open up, you don't become the leader of any gang or anything. I mean the storyline is just pretty boring but I think that the idea of gangs was cool. To bad they took that away in Gta 5. But hey if you want something to play on a long car trip I'd say this is sort of a winner other then that it's a so so game.
Pretty nice port of a revolutionary game
My only complaints are that once I got to the third island, my game would constantly freeze for a few seconds, and it ruined my immersion a lot. It got worse the longer you played the game. I’m currently on an iPad Air 2 running the latest iOS as of writing this review. There’s also a few texture bugs where sometimes things would turn into weird gray squares, but they're nothing game breaking. Gun controls could be better as well, but they’re enjoyable for the most part. The game gets a bit repetitive the more you play it too. But besides all that, it’s a solid and fun game. Interesting story and characters, nice soundtrack (although there’s only 4-5 songs per station), decent graphics for a mobile game, fun gameplay, and plenty of things to do besides missions. Be warned, though. The game has definitely showed it’s age. Overall a solid purchase and I’m happy. I just finished the main story and got everything I wanted to do done. Go ahead and buy it! I think it’s worth it.
There once was an awesome review I spent probably 30 mins typing. Then I hit cancel instead of send. *palm to the forehead* ...almost drops phone and swipes on screen nearly deleting this.. #epicfail This game is a classic piece of moving art. If you don't like it, Don't play it. If you only game on your phone and this is your first time, don't download; You're not worthy.
Pros: Enhanced graphics.
from original PS2 and PC versions. (Lighting slightly off on mobile version)
Smooth frame rate.
I originally played this on my iPod 4th gen with Retina display 32 gb and was greatly impressed by how smooth the game ran. (Of course, once support of devices with iOS 6.0 stopped, the game became choppier) it runs like a charm on my iPhone SE as of now.
I'm sure you've played this before, if you haven't. Don't download it, remember??? You're not worthy!! (Haha)
Sure it may be slightly complex at times. ("Look at me contradicting the title of this next segment!" 😅) What do you expect? Your fingers are covering up most of the screen...be thankful we live in a time that you can play, what was once a home console video game, on your cell phone!! (Greedy chumps)
To sum it all up. 5 stars, great game. If you want to hi jack cars on your phone without going to jail. This games for you!!
