Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Dec 7, 2014

Ported to Android to celebrate the original game's 10th anniversary, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City comes with improved graphics and lighting effects, customizable controls, and countless hours of gameplay.

Pros

Faithful to the original: The look, feel, characters, and key missions of the original title are all here on the screen of your Android tablet or smartphone.

Great story: In a mobile gaming world saturated with action games with shallow characters, B-movie dialog, and cliché plots, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City tells a story masterfully, playing with violence and vulgarity. The voice acting is as great as in the original.

Nifty little features: You can auto-save in the cloud, make your own playlist with music on your device, and best of all, you can instantly retry failed missions, which saves you from those harrowing visits to the hospital.

Cons

Challenging controls: There are moments, especially during shootings, fist-fights, or urgent missions when you'll get your butt kicked or even be outright killed because of the controls. The most annoying of the controls is the virtual analog stick, which doesn't always appear where you put your left thumb, as it's supposed to.

Heats up your device: Playing this game for more than 30-45 minutes heats up your device considerably and also drains your battery.

Occasional bugs: Although overall the gaming experience is fairly smooth, now and then you have to put up with lag, freezes, and crashes.

Bottom Line

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is a game for Grand Theft Auto lovers and for nostalgics. If you haven't played any Grand Theft Auto titles before, you may want to choose San Andreas to start, which has also been ported to Android and has better graphics and fewer technical issues.

Developer's Description

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.

To celebrate its 10 year anniversary, Rockstar Games brings Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to mobile devices with high-resolution graphics, updated controls and a host of new features including:

- Beautifully updated graphics, character models and lighting effects

- New, precisely tailored firing and targeting options

- Custom controls with a fully customizable layout

- Massive campaign with countless hours of gameplay

- Compatible with the MoGa Wireless Game Controller and select USB gamepads

- Integrated with Immersion tactile effects
