Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is the sixth game in famous Grand Theft Auto Series. In 2002 this game was released for PC and different consoles. It got much popularity from gamers across the world. At the occasion of it’s ten year anniversary, Rockstar launched Vice City game for iOS and Android devices. The game was ported on these device in December 2012. The iOs version of this game is of 1.02GB and the Android version of this game is of 1.4GB with a cost of $4.99 for both the devices. Recently We got our hands-on the Android version this game. So, we thought to share the full review of the game, with our friend gamers across the web.

The plot of the game is similar as it was for PC and console version. In the game, you play the role of Tommy Vercetti who is the mafia hitman, released from prison after 15 years for killing 11 men. After that he start to work for Liberty City’s drug kingpin Sonny Forelli and after few days he sends Tommy to Vice City. But during one of the cocaine deals, things go pear shaped as Tommy men are shot dead by unknown people. Vercetti then tries to find out who did this to him, while slowly taking over the reigns as the new cocaine kingpin in Vice City. Not talking much about the story, let’s get back to this new version game. If you have played the previous version of this game on your PC or any consoles, then you will be well familiar with the environment of this game for Android and iOS. there are not much changes in this new game for iOS and Android. Let’s now talk about the Gameplay.
GTA Vice City for iOS


The game play of this game is as usual similar to the previous version. The story is told through various cut scenes and you are provided with different missions. Most of the missions are the works asked by other persons, which you have to do and in exchange they provide you the money, which you can use to buy different things in the game.
If you love to drive, then you can take any vehicle from any one with a press of button. As usual, if there is someone driving it, Tommy will throw that person out and drive off. The driving part of the game is very poor to handle. The vehicle remains out of control due to lack of different buttons and due to narrow streets. It might seem fun the first few times but then when you have to get somewhere it just becomes annoying. The two wheeler are better to ride then the 4 wheeler vehicles.
Vice City for AndroidThe default driving controls are left and right arrow keys on the screen. These are quite difficult to see when you’re focussing on the game and you keep missing them, making the driving experience even worse. Bot the version iOS and Android comes with some unique features. Like if you are playing this game on your iOs device, then your game will be automatically save on iCloud, which is very good feature. You can also play the music from iTunes instead of the default radio musics in the vehicles.
While in the Android version of the game, you can use any Bluetooth gamepads and customize the visual settings of the game which you can’t do in the iOS version.

Rockstar has improved the graphics of this game for iOS and Android devices. It looks good as compared to the previous PC or console version. The game now runs on the higher resolutions as compared to the consoles that were available in 2002. Every object you see is about as curvy as the Pyramid of Giza. And then there are the low resolution textures.
We also can’t say that the game comes with totally an awesome graphics, for us it is good if we compare with the other version of the game, but it is little good when we compare the game with other Android games, such as Most Wanted or something else.

If you are big fan of Rockstar Grand Theft Auto series or Vice City, then we will say you to try this game. But it is not free, so you have to pay some money to have fun with this game. The positive thing about the game is that it has interesting storyline and good set of dialogues and radio stations. The bad thing in the game is driving vehicles, which is not upto mark.
