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.

Great game, but needs to be improved
This is a great game, I’m not gonna lie. A few years back, I used to play this on my iPhone 6 a few years back, and I loved it. I would usually fool around in the game when I wasn’t doing missions and I would get 6 stars, steal tanks, and store them in my garage. It was a lot of fun. However, at that time, I didn’t know about cloud saves, and it was time for a new phone. I got the iPhone 7 Plus now, which is what I have now, and I decided to reinstall this game and play it again. However, whenever I play on my iPhone 7 Plus, for some reason, the performance is worse than when I used to play on my iPhone 6! There are frame drops, the game freezes for a few seconds quite often, then resumes playing. The most aggravating thing is that whenever I would exit the game and come right back, whether it’s to check the time or how much battery I have left, the game would freeze, then crash. I would even pause the game and pull down my notifications or pull up my control center, and the game freezes and crashes. What’s the point of a pause menu if I can’t even lock my phone or exit the app without returning to a game that freezes and crashes? Please improve this
Pretty solid and just like I remembered!
It’s April 12th, 2018 and with only about 2 hours of game time, I’d have to say that I’m pleased with the game. I’ve read of some freezing and so far the only “freezing” that happens is if I go to the options menu for more than 10 seconds, upon going back into the game it’ll take about 5 to 10 seconds to refresh and continue playing without any jumping after 10 more seconds. It’s pretty solid now. Fun game, just as I remember it being. The controls are surprisingly simple and mostly easy to use. You can even change the controls in the settings, to include button placement completely customizable with an ability to resize any control button. My only suggestion would be to immerse yourself into the game for a while at a time to prevent possible permanent freezing when going back into the game. I did so probably 5 times and the last time I did so, checking a message on my phone, going back into the game it froze completely. Other than that, it’s a great game! Enjoy!
Not optimized for iPad Pro 12.9”
This game is awesome the only problem is the controls aren’t optimized for the iPad Pro 12.9” which is a huge bummer if you bought this game and then realized that the buttons aren’t at the corners of the screen but instead the middle. Please fix this because it used to be optimized but the newest updates changed that. This is my favorite game out of the trilogy and I wish that I can play the game without having to extend my fingers to the middle of the screen.
Edit: So I have done more research about the screen controls not being optimized to my iPad and I realized that there is a way to change where the buttons are. The problem is that that area also isn’t optimized for the iPad Pro. Rockstar needs to make it so you can resize that to the correct dimensions. Even if you delete the app and redownload it. The buttons still won’t be optimized for the 12.9” screen.
