Rockstar Games' seminal open-world crime game arrives on the iPhone and iPad in this touch-enabled 10th anniversary re-release, which serves up the original go-anywhere, do-anything action experience for a cool five bucks.
And you'll get your money's worth here, as the lengthy solo adventure takes your anti-hero through all manner of illicit activities, plus loads of side missions, and the sheer thrill of high-speed cop chases still shines through today. Whether on-foot or behind the wheel, there's plenty to do throughout Liberty City, and quite a bit of it amuses and entertains in equal does. Plus, all of the amazing radio stations from the original console release remain intact!
While not as glossy as some newer iOS releases, Grand Theft Auto 3's open sandbox of mischief is welcoming on both devices, though the mass array of virtual buttons can be a bit overwhelming, and it's not as precise as the controller schemes of past versions. Luckily, the buttons can be moved around the screen, letting you design the most comfortable control option for your device and preferences. And regardless of any nagging control issues, it's pretty amazing to experience such a huge and entertaining adventure like this on a much smaller screen.
The bottom line. Despite some bugs and signs of age, Grand Theft Auto 3 is still a blast a decade after its debut.
iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 4.3 or later
Stellar and complete port of a true open-world action classic. Works well on both iPhone and iPad. Extremely well-priced for what you're getting.
Controls aren't perfect, though they are customizable. Looks a little dated, plus you'll encounter occasional glitches.
