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.

Vice City Lives On!
Great port to mobile! My only gripe is I had a glitch after completing 30% of the game. For some reason the controls wouldn’t switch to regular walking mode after going to the hardware store. The controls were fine when driving cars but when walking it only had the left and right arrows and the purchase button. Nothing I could to would revert away from the store purchase mode. I tried dying, killing the hardware guy, buying from other stores, loading previously saved games, offloading the game and re downloading, and it still wouldn’t go back to normal. I eventually just straight up deleted everything and reinstalled and of course that worked. I made the mistake of not saving my game to the cloud slot otherwise I’d be good. So if this happens to you, save your game to the cloud slot, delete everything, and reinstall. Also save very frequently just in case. The other thing I wanted to ask that would make the game greater would be a dual analog option. That would be nice for driving so you can control your speed and braking much better. Maybe I am the only one that wants this? I just think it would make it better. Worth the money!
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!
It’s the full game on your phone!
It’s the full game, it really is. Hidden packages, rampages, side missions, everything. The on screen controls are fully customizable, you can adjust the size and location. It took a while for me to get used to them but it’s not that difficult. It’d probably be better with a controller. I have the iPhone XS with the latest OS and have not had any issues with crashing as others have reported. I’ve even left the app open overnight and I picked up right where I left off. One new thing is if you fail a mission, a prompt will ask if you want to try again. It’ll start you over so you don’t have to drive back to the guy. But, anything you collected (hidden packages or whatever) will be reset also. When you die or get busted, you keep your weapons! That’s new, and very nice. Not sure if you can cheat on here, haven’t tried yet. Overall I’m very happy I spent the $5 on this.
