Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

The popular simulation from Rockstar games rocks your mobile.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

The first time I played a Grand Theft Auto game was on my PlayStation. I was stunned by the visuals and the sheer endless possibilities you have in the game. It is so complex. And the developers walk the extra mile to base the game on real and existing places. It is so lifelike that you feel like you are walking through a real environment. It is unbelievable that you are able to play these games on your mobile.

Rockstar games really hit the nail on the head when they released the 10th-anniversary edition of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for Android mobile devices. Players who remember the 1980s themed classic are sure to be as excited as I was when I saw this title available in the play store!

Dare I say this open world experience, mixed of course with just the right amount of epic character narrative storylines, gives the original a run for its money.

It's been a long time since many of us Rockstar fans revisited the streets of Vice City, so if you're as eager as I was, head to the Google play store on your Android device to download Grand Theft Auto: Vice City!

Getting The Best Of Both Gaming Worlds

There are a few unique styles of gameplay which players like to sink hours of play time into, but the two most significant methods are solo and MMO, or Massively Multiplayer Online. Personally, I love being able to follow along with an intriguing storyline, but also have the run of an expansive universe where I can explore or collect rare items for crafting and building a bankroll for in-game items.

Although most of the MMO games on the market, both mobile and otherwise, have fairly solid storylines and character development, there's just something about that Scarface-like style that is so evident in the stories and characters of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Along with the great quests and tasks you'll have to perform when you play Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, you will also have the entirety of Vice City to explore, just like when we played back in the day!

Improved Controls For Comfortable Playability

One of my biggest concerns when installing the mobile version of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was whether or not the controls were going to work well enough on a mobile device to do the content justice.

Honestly, although it does take some getting used to, the controls created for the mobile platform could not be any better than Rockstar has set up. It does seem that the larger the screen you are playing on, the better you can navigate the game, but it works just as well on either a phone or tablet.

The aiming and firing controls have been tweaked ever so slightly to give you a better experience when playing the game on the small screen. But, you can opt to connect your Bluetooth console controller to your device if it's more comfortable for you.

PC Quality In The Palm Of Your Hands

The most impressive feature of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is the incredible PC worthy graphics you'll find throughout the game. I was very skeptical of the video settings being able to keep up with this stunning game on a mobile device, but the developers at Rockstar really put their nose to this project!

You will need 1.5 GB of free space on your device to download Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, so you know you are getting a huge game with loads of incredible content.

There is almost nothing negative to say about this application, which I couldn't be happier about. Since you pay for the game, there are no walls of ads to keep you held up between missions, which also means no hassles for a subscription fee either! The only downfall I could find as of yet is that you can't upload the game onto an SD card, so you're stuck with having the massive game file library on your phone. The only downside to this is if you play a lot of games on your device.
