A true playstation 2 gem

this is probably my favourite pedestrian splatter game besides the first carmageddon for iOS. I mean in vice city peds don’t seem to spawn when your driving and they only seem to appear when you slow down. and in San Andreas it feels more realistic where you tend to slow down when running into somebody but this game truly masters the gore effects and the music is really nothing special but there is some hardcore cheesy hip hop and half of the scarface soundtrack to keep you going! and it runs perfectly for the most part but does tend to glitch out at times when you’ve gotten half way through the story and have to lose all your progress because you can get out of a vehicle or your character won’t move. which is why I’m going to start using cloud storage but like I said it seems to be a problem with the vehicles like the beach buggy (Bf injection) where I was in the car and turned the game off only to come back the next day and found that when I tried to exit the vehicle the game crashed. but hopefully that can be fixed

A great port of a fun 20 year old game!

If you didn’t play GTA III back in the day, this is a fun game with a tonne of missions, decent touch screen controls and a good way to kill time on your phone.

If you played GTA III back in the day, it’s all here for you, plus some added extra control features for the touch screen:

*Map accessible by touching top corner
*On-foot camera rotation
*Vehicle camera rotation
*Better textures and effects

It loses a few of the PC updates, the most noticeable being the aim function - your character simply shoots whoever is closest to them when pressing fire.

The game also supports wireless controllers, and I have been playing on a PS4 controller with my iPhone connected via HDMI to my TV with the official Apple Lightning HDMI Connector. There’s no lag and the game runs smoothly. When playing via controller the additional touch screen features of the control scheme aren’t accessible, meaning that you just play the bog standard PS2 version. I’m not sure if the ability to camera swap was available on PS2 - if so they should add that function to the controller.

Overall I haven’t quite left the first island yet after about 5 hours of playing, but so far the experience has been a good one!

GTA Advance for iOS please!!!!!!

This is the best GTA game ever in my opinion.
It’s great to be able to play it on the go.
What would be a fantastic addition to this game is if it included GTA Advance (since it’s a prequel to this game).
Say like if there was a game shop in this game and you could buy GTA Advance from there, the same way you buy weapons from AmmuNation. Then once you’ve bought it, it becomes playable at the safe house or on the games menu screen.
Please at GTA Advance to this game, that would be awesome!!!

I would personally love to see a remastered version of GTA 3 for PS4, Xbox One and PC (and maybe Switch aswell).
Where all the Missions and Rampages etc stay the same, but with extra things to do in the game like being able ride motorbikes, fly plains and helicopters, Pizza and Noodle delivery missions, being able to socialise with 8 Ball and go on dates with Maria etc (and of course play GTA Advance in the safe house).
That would be awesome!!!

Also Rockstar Games please can we have Max Payne 2 for iOS, that would be a dream come true!!!!
Keep up the good work!!!!!
