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.

Unmmmm. What is wrong about the cops in this game and let’s talk about the timer on some missions?

Okay, this game is great but the cops tho..... every time I’m wanted they’re always on top of me. I was on the mission called
“S.A.M” and I was almost done. I was delivering the stash and the cops were just always on top of me. What I mean by that is they were always bumping into me and always behind me. This ain’t like real life. Cops just don’t spawn there and start faster chasing you. Make this more like GTA SA where they actually drive to chase you and what’s with the timers? It took almost 59 tries if I’m being honest on that one mission called “Espresso 2 Go” THAT WAS ONE DIFFICULT MISSION! 59 or 58 tries if I’m being honest and if course I was almost done with basically the last mission and BAYUM!!!!!! The cops are just there. I suggest you fix the cop sparing and get rid of those timers. They make the game way to difficult and they probably make other people out there angry too. PLEASE. FIX COPS AND GET RID OF TIMERS!!!!!!!!!
And keep in mind that this is a great game! I love it so much but the stupid cops spawning and the timers. Please Rockstar Games, fix the cops and get rid of the timers. PLEASE!!! 😥😥😥🙄🙄🙄🥺🥺🥺😩😩😩

Almost perfect

So I have been playing the game for 3 hours on and off and I noticed a couple of things you can't do. You can't do drive-by shooting and you can't aim wherever you want when shooting people. It was kind of a let down even though those are minor flaws. I'd love to see a update in the future where these two things might be addressed. Other than that, the game is amazing. Oh and it'd be neat if there was a way to enter codes to access all weapons, armor and to be able to drive the tank.

Update: if you could make this game full screen and fix the bugs that are making it freeze up that would be great. I noticed GTA Vice City got an update and it looks way better in full screen for iPhone XS Max
