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 • iCloud save game support • Massive campaign with countless hours of gameplay • Support for Retina display devices • Custom iTunes Playlist* *To listen to your custom playlist, simply create a playlist titled “VICECITY”, launch the game, and select the radio station “Tape Deck” Universal App: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is supported on iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, all iPad models and 4th and 5th generation iPod Touch.

GTA Vice city in all its glory...
by Steven X. on 2019/02/17 11:43
the original game remastered in HD. So glad they recently improved the quality of life issues and added graphical improvements as this is simply a gaming gem. I hope they continue to improve the graphics and really let this game showcase all the power of the new iPads.
Finally updated

Please fix UI for iPad Pro 12.9, bring hud to the right and not on the middle of the screen, make ui look as it supposed to be.
Excellent
by PeiYu Cai on 2019/02/16 14:38
For supporting iOS 12 and optimizing for iPad Pro
Thank God

Been waiting a long time for you to update this game. Now go fix GTA 3
iPhone XR update
by P.O.R.T.E.S_S on 2019/02/14 05:35
This needs an update for the iPhone XR. The layout isn’t good
Grateful for the update.
by racerhomie on 2019/02/14 03:34
Rockstar, thanks for allowing the developers to update GTA Vice City. I have a Logitech Powershell for playing GTA & the lag made it awful. 🐛 For folks with older versions of GTA 3, Chinatown Wars turn off WiFi & Cellular data from the Control Center on iOS 12. This fixes some of the lag of the game.

Needs update for full screen on iPhone X just like GTA 3 app.
by Dylan Aldrich on 2019/02/13 01:52
Other than that it needing an update for it to be supported full screen on iPhone X I wouldn’t have any complaints. Thanks for finally giving this game full screen support. Can we get a full screen support for GTA 3 now?
Even better after recent update.
by Pico 2 on 2019/02/13 01:46
After the iPhone X and Xs update. This game looks so much better and can’t believe how nice it looks now. So glad they updated it. Really awesome update!

Not optimized for iOS 12
by Gigyt on 2019/02/12 16:11
I don’t want to know why, but my iPhone 5s freezes completely on is 12. Improve!!! Who are you rockstar if you cant make a game. You are robbers and liars!!!! All your games have not optimized since 2016

by Mike_G4life on 2019/02/12 08:17
Yeah barely can play it on iPhone 8plus cutscenes lag and skip dialogue etc please fix for iPhone 8plus.
Please Optimize for iOS 12
by Mateo187 on 2019/02/11 20:51
Please make game playable with iOS 12 as I can not get anywhere as it freezes every 5 seconds. And it’s frustrating that I have not been able to play a game I have paid for. I see that it was last updated 3 years ago it’s time to optimize it for iOS 12 and newer devices so we can once again play this game without it freezing every 5 seconds
Do not buy!!!
by charlie1444 on 2019/02/11 13:44
I love rockstar games as well as the entire gta franchise but this game is absolutely in playable if your trying too have a nice placing experience basically your gonna pay 5 dollars for an unplayable game my xs won’t even run it

Great game just not for mobile
by Rip8810 on 2019/02/06 00:23
Controls are clunky as can be with way more aggressive drivers than original that will literally run you down and circle u on the streets. Cops speed is practically tripled from original and cops basically warp to u and bust u in seconds if theyre near your vehicle. Aiming is meh, driving is horrible. Made me wana do nothin but jus go play it on pc.
Super buggy
by mdwashek on 2019/02/05 14:50
I loved this game when it came out on ps2. I got this to feel some of that gta nostalgia, but within 5 mins of playing the game was freezing and glitching, and I was playing on the 2018 iPad Pro. I love the game, but until it’s fixed, I would not recommend this port

The controls are broken on the iPhone X
Lag issue
by nikewavecap on 2019/02/01 02:31
So I start the game will play for like 2min. And there’s a small lag every couple sec and it hasn’t stop. A slight pause every time and it’s annoying makes the game unplayable disappointed I spent the money I did on a buggy game.
LAGSSS!!!
by selenaflores95 on 2019/02/01 00:17
The game lags like crazy! smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ it’s totally unplayable after a couple of minutes.

Keeps freezing
by Lord Dukwad on 2019/01/30 02:51
Please optimize devices such as 6s or 7 to stop making this game freeze. I really want to play as it brings back good memories when it came out
Does not work on iOS 12
by Jstn H on 2019/01/30 02:29
Hello gentlemen and gentlewoman. I apologize for the single star but hoped you may read this. Vice city staggers and is unplayable on iOS 12. I made it to the point of purchasing property in the game and it collapsed on me — freezing every few seconds. I have a new iPad Pro with Apple’s latest updates and do not believe it is the device, especially given that all other apps/games function without issue. Anyway, I love the game and hope you can resolve the problem. Kindest Regards.
Glitch city
by TMG11 on 2019/01/30 00:03
Game freezes every 5 minutes and have to restart.
It freezes every 5 seconds!
by Pierreo345 on 2019/01/29 22:59
It is nice to be able to play a PS2 title on the iPhone but it is disappointing that it freezes every 5 seconds once in while. I wouldn't complain at all but I paid for this.
Don’t waste your money

Screen freezes way too often
by baezb30 on 2019/01/29 12:40
This game is great but the screen freezes up quite often for a few seconds and then just plays smooth but will do it again in like 1 minute PLEASE fix this so i can enjoy my childhood flashbacks thank you
Vice City lags
by Irishbloke218 on 2019/01/29 03:19
Rockstar needs to update this game. It lags on my iPad 2 iPad 3 iPhone 6s+ and now iPhone XS+. Why? It never happened on the older devices. Now it’s so bad that even when you restart it takes about 1 minute before it lags. Please update the GTA games and then I’d say 5 stars!
Fix Please

Glitches
by chandra456 on 2019/01/28 23:04
So when I first got the game it was great until I completed the mission “waste the wife” after that it got so laggy I couldn’t even do the next missions I’m experiencing lag spikes that last as long as 15 seconds just for a split second of movement If any developer reads this please tell me ways to fix it
I want to like it
by Jamie M. 😎 on 2019/01/27 23:05
I never played it before but I’m a huge fan of GTA 3 and San Andreas. I’m running it on a iPhone 8 64gb sized with a bunch of free space it was running really good but now for some reason after I play for 5 mins it skips to where I can’t move anywhere on the map.

Waste of money.
by PresidentGunner on 2019/01/24 00:07
I don’t know what rockstars idea of “logical or lifelike” is but it’s not this game. Let’s take a couple thing into account. You can’t swim. When you are hiding from the cops the helicopters lights shine threw overhangs. Cops guns shoot threw walls, rooms over miles. I do not think you fully thought the design of this game. It takes literally nothing to kill you. But jumping off a roof haha. You can jump off the highest roof and not die. All in all the game was not good. The story line sucked, the gameplay was so spotty it was unbelievable. The ethics of this game really make no sense I can get slammed into by a cop car and get slung across the road, take that cop car and it blow up the first thing I hit. Rockstar made sure to make it to where the character WOULD NOT stand up after jumping out the car. I was really disappointed. I think I could do a better job with this game myself and I have no experience in game design.

I love GTA and I love Vice City but it doesn’t work with me. It lags to much and it keeps changing positions from the back or the the front and it throws my driving off it’s so annoying. Please fix this problem. I don’t want to get rid of the game.
The sounds are off
by RowdyPooch on 2019/01/16 22:46
I wish there was more to the sounds. For example, when driving you cant turn up the radio but the car is so loud. I wish there was a way to change the sound of the cars. Even good cars shouldnt sound like they are breaking down. ALSO I JUST NOW GOT THE CRASHING AND I CANT GET BACK ONTO THE APP. 😡😡😡
Great game but....
by Calvintae on 2019/01/16 19:37
Plays so good and smooth for the first 2 minutes and then constantly ‘buffers’ or lags every 2 seconds... Shame too that Rockstar doesn’t make any updates I noticed. I’ll be getting my refund for this game and not buy anymore GTA’s mobile till the devs start putting updates out for these bugs..
Unplayable
by BelovedShadow on 2019/01/16 10:20

junk game
by hateGTA on 2019/01/15 10:55
if you check game description this game is compatible with IOS 5.1.1 which means it must be compatible with Iphone 3GS and newer models. but it is no truth. This game freezes, glitches and crashes on IPAD PRO 12.9" 1st gen. and Iphone 7 PLUS. Don't waste money. Don't buy this game. It will be better to remove this junk game from APPStore
:(

Freezes and glitches
by tjf8887 on 2019/01/14 00:10
All this game does is freeze and glitch. I want my money back.
Great game, but needs to be improved
by Eugene849362849837 on 2018/02/11 20:03
This is a great game, I’m not gonna lie. A few years back, I used to play this on my iPhone 6 a few years back, and I loved it. I would usually fool around in the game when I wasn’t doing missions and I would get 6 stars, steal tanks, and store them in my garage. It was a lot of fun. However, at that time, I didn’t know about cloud saves, and it was time for a new phone. I got the iPhone 7 Plus now, which is what I have now, and I decided to reinstall this game and play it again. However, whenever I play on my iPhone 7 Plus, for some reason, the performance is worse than when I used to play on my iPhone 6! There are frame drops, the game freezes for a few seconds quite often, then resumes playing. The most aggravating thing is that whenever I would exit the game and come right back, whether it’s to check the time or how much battery I have left, the game would freeze, then crash. I would even pause the game and pull down my notifications or pull up my control center, and the game freezes and crashes. What’s the point of a pause menu if I can’t even lock my phone or exit the app without returning to a game that freezes and crashes? Please improve this
Pretty solid and just like I remembered!
by Sassafras guy on 2018/04/12 14:41
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!
Several bugs to be fixed!
by Sultanofswag89 on 2017/05/22 14:51
I give this game 4 stars for being pretty faithful to the 2002 original. However, there are bugs that need to be fixed. Firstly, sometimes when I get into a car, he camera doesn't move with it, and stays at the place that I got in the car. I can fix this by pressing the POV button when you are in a car, though. I still would like this fixed. Secondly, sometimes when I resume a certain save file, the game remains on a black screen and I have to reenter the game. I do this, only for the black screen to happen again on the same save file. Thirdly, there are times when I shoot my gun in a car, and it won't shoot. Only one shot will work, and the gun will stop working. Fourthly, sometimes in general after a few shots, the gun doesn't shoot anymore. Don't know if this is intentional or if the original did the same. Fifthly, if a car explodes and the screen gets a shaky effect, sometimes it keeps shaking, even minutes after the explosion. Sixthly, when I drive a car up a ramp and the game goes into a slo-mo mode, the camera never goes back to the car and the game is still in slo-mo speed. A lot of issues to be fixed. Fix these, and I will give 5 stars. Thx you.
Great game, but ridiculously glitchy!
by Xannies4All on 2018/10/24 05:07
I really wanted to enjoy this game, but get far enough into it and the game becomes very glitchy and choppy. I got to the mission “Cop Land” and had to restart it at least 5 times to get the game to stop freezing every second. After that the experience got so bad that anything else I did afterwards would just do the exact same thing. This is off my iPhone 7 BTW so it may work for you. But what’s the deal here? It’s a wonderful game that you can’t even play, but I guess this company’s too invested in making unreasonably priced cars in GTA Online than properly optimizing their games. I like how the game would operate without overheating the phone, but I really think they could’ve done better. And what I hate about this is they know they could’ve done better too. At this point it’s been three days in and I honestly think I should get my money back knowing they probably don’t care to optimize this. Such a shame since I really looked forward to playing this.
Grand Best Auto
by Hdhdhhdhhdksjndikdbhdjbdbdhd on 2016/12/18 05:20
I personally think that this is the best GTA game in the franchise. This game has free roam, 80's nostalgia, and a great storyline. This game has what a lot of other games lacked back in the early 2000's. I really hope that games today will have a great impact on the upcoming games to be released, like this game did with games today. My only complaint about this games is the control style. I know that a lot of other people would say that the graphics are outdated, but I don't think that a game should be based on its graphics, it's based on it's impact it has on the player. I really hope that Rockstar Games will keep trying to improve the gaming industry. Overall I give this game 9/10. It is a great game and if you have never played and you're an open minded person I strongly suggest to give this game a try.
So many BUGS!!!
by ChapoJr. on 2017/07/17 03:10
I have been playing it for several weeks now and i have had to delete the app and download it again many times. The game is really fun. Brings back many childhood memories but the bugs just aggravate me. I want to finish buying the trilogy but dont want to waste my money if the bugs dont get fixed. I cant jump out of a car on fire like in the console game, after shooting the pistol or shot gun many times it doesnt shoot anymore, it has many glitches and lags way too much. I am up to Love Fist concert where the psycho shoots the guard and it just freezes there. Before this one when i first downloaded the game it wouldnt finish the missions it would just end at the point after all the Haitian, Cuban and love fist missions finish. The last mission is killing Lance and whatever other missions before that i dont get. It needs to be fixed first so i can decide on buying the trilogy.
Waste of money.
by PresidentGunner on 2019/01/24 00:07
I don’t know what rockstars idea of “logical or lifelike” is but it’s not this game. Let’s take a couple thing into account. You can’t swim. When you are hiding from the cops the helicopters lights shine threw overhangs. Cops guns shoot threw walls, rooms over miles. I do not think you fully thought the design of this game. It takes literally nothing to kill you. But jumping off a roof haha. You can jump off the highest roof and not die. All in all the game was not good. The story line sucked, the gameplay was so spotty it was unbelievable. The ethics of this game really make no sense I can get slammed into by a cop car and get slung across the road, take that cop car and it blow up the first thing I hit. Rockstar made sure to make it to where the character WOULD NOT stand up after jumping out the car. I was really disappointed. I think I could do a better job with this game myself and I have no experience in game design.
Amazing game, but one problem
by Alyana J on 2018/05/16 13:11
I would like to rate this game 5-stars because it’s very fun, but recently when the game was loading for me to play, it crashed. I refreshed the game and tried to load the game again, but it keeps crashing and crashing. I’ve tried to restart my device, but it still crashes. I offloaded the app (because I didn’t want to lose its data) and re-installed it again but when the game was loading, it crashed again! Please fix this problem. I am desperate to play the game again because it is an amazing game. It has been 2 days since the crashing problem occurred. I hope you’ll see this, Rockstar. And if you do, thanks for reading and please fix this problem right away.
The game play is amazing for an IOS version.
by Optimistic facebook user on 2018/08/19 11:19
The game is great. It brings me back like when I used to play on the Play Station console. My only issue right now is I paid for this game and it sometimes freezes during game play and then resumes. It crashed on me a fee seconds ago but I can still log back in and play where I left off. Other than the game play seconds freezes, the game is perfect. Controls are easy to use all around. Now I’m experiencing that it won’t play the game anymore. It will show the R and everything else, but when I hit resume game or load my save game. It will just suddenly crash and go back to my home screen.
Great game just an odd platform
by biggbran23 on 2017/12/27 02:45
The game itself is great, it’s a classic. Being adapted to an iPhone is the strange part that takes away from the enjoyment. Makes me want to go find my old ps2 and play the game properly. The analog stick simulator is hard to get used to, makes it hard to be precise while driving or attacking people. Another problem is you can’t change the radio stations. Lastly you can’t use cheat codes. Despite all of that it’s still very enjoyable to pull it up to kill 10 minutes and the load times are much faster than on the ps2. Lol. It’s definitely worth the small price and hassle to relive one of my favorite games right on my phone. For that I’ll give it 4 stars.
THIS IS RIDICULOUS!
by DrEaMeR-cHiCk on 2016/06/18 17:31
I bought this game because I had a problem with the original GTA. There was a glitch where it would not let me resume my game that I had spent hours on! I started a new file bc the game was so much fun, and then after hours of playing, the EXACT SAME THING happened to the new file (this is for the GTA original)! I love this game because it is so much fun, and after countless hours of playing, I left the game and came back, and to my frustration, it would not let me play my saved game! I have tried resetting my iPad, and restarting the app, and updating my system, but I still cannot resume my game!!! I have spent hours on this game and I do not want to delete the app and lose all of my progress, but what is the freaking point when I can't even play what I have spent HOURS achieving!! I have spent money on this game and the original and it is a HUGE WASTE!!!!!
A classic
by mushr00m_m00n on 2017/02/03 21:07
Vice City is an undisputed classic GTA, with its own self contained personality far distinct from all of the others in the series. My favorite GTA - and the iOS version actually has some features which make the game more manageable than the original, such as replaying failed mission with the click of a button rather than having to make your way to the mission start point over and over on your own. Also the lock on for aiming seems more automated and in most cases this helps but can be frustrating if you can't lock onto a specific target. Overall a classic, somehow miraculously preserved for the iPhone.
Pure crap
by 2648264739 on 2018/06/08 20:11
The program designers made aspects of this game nearly impossible and redundant. I purchased with the intent of having a random and open experience, not having my options limited by the programmers idea of enjoyment for themselves. If I pay them money, they don’t get that right, they sold that right. I expect to be able to play as I wish without having my paid for product limited due to a programmer’s idea of what they I should and should not be doing. When I pay for something, I expect to get everything I paid for. The designers intentionally limit the games attributes despite having been paid in full. This game will make you jump through hoops and then some to be able to unlock all the attributes that you should be able to get it you properly paid for this program. As I stated prior, this is pure crap.
Practically unplayable on newer iOS devices
by scottmac112 on 2018/04/06 16:39
The game itself is great. Unfortunately Rockstar seems to have abandoned these iOS ports to their detriment. And for whatever reason GTA III and Vice City perform miserably on devices newer than the iPhone 7 (the iPad Pro included, which I bought with the partial intention of playing these games on). The games freeze multiple times per minute, many times for three or more seconds at a time, making gameplay almost impossible. I’ve tried force quitting all other apps, rebooting prior to play, turning off Low Power Mode, turning on Limit Refresh Rate, turning off True Tone, and nothing seems to make these perform like on my old iPad Air or iPhone 7. Please fix these, Rockstar. And buyers beware unless you’re using an older iOS device.
LAG
by PistolvaniaDevil on 2018/12/09 09:22
What in the world is going on. Loved this game. Always have. Loved it even more updated on my phone. Got to the second island and beat all the car dealership side missions. Everything was fine. Then the lag started. Random times, pretty much breaks the game while it’s happening. It won’t go away. Uninstalled the game. Re installed it. Deleted saves. Started over. Still game breaking lag. Spent $5 on this crap just to have the game break repeatedly. Have since bought GTA-LCS and it so far has no issues. Very confused as to how this can be possible for an older less graphically enhanced game to have this big of an issues years after its release on such a new model of iPhone. Will be contacting Apple for a refund if this doesn’t improve. Way disappointed. Please finish projects you start. For once rockstar.
Really good tough mechanics
by Thunderyorb4 on 2017/12/14 20:13
I love this game it's really the mechanics are fun to play. The challenge is very spot on when you die you restart the chapter but since their not that long the game doesn't really feel like it's been sadistic. The game allows to choose your own approach with each mission while using the open world. The characters a funny and unique never clique. But the game has some bugs a the driving can be very floaty. But it's still a good game I give it 10/10 it's not perfect but very good. It's legendary and one of the best games today that holds up compared to modern titles.
Best GTA game to this day
by Mygirlisyourgirl on 2017/11/02 02:54
Vice city will and always is the best GTA game there is. But that's on ps2 because the app game doesn't allow cheat codes and it glitches way to much there controls don't work well on iPad and when I have to pass the helicopter picking up bombs mission doesn't work cause camera won't shift to see where I'm going. It's impossible to pass this mission on iTunes but I've passed it on a ps2 and Xbox before many times. So I can imagine how much harder it would be to pass harder missions on this app. But good game to play if I'm not home and bored! Best ITunes game I've played by far.
Game crash before loading
by Stanky_ninja404 on 2017/09/26 11:48
This game was perfectly fine until about today because whenever I try to play the game it gets to the loading screen about 5% away from being done then it will crash and put me into my home screen so if this could be fixed then that would be good also because I paid like $5 for this game they better fix this please and thank you also I just tried turning off my phone and all this other stuff and it still not working so rockstar please fix this!! I wouldn't care if it was free but I paid like $5 like I said earlier so just fix this please
Just like I remembered
by Hxucfcvivig on 2017/12/06 17:36
I’m giving 4 stars because the game doesn’t seem like it has changed at all since it was first released in 2002. My only issue is that it’s not optimized to run on a phone. The controls are a little awkward at first, and sometimes they make it difficult to do missions I’d fly through on a PS2. Another issue is that after about 10 minutes of playing the game begins to stutter. I’m playing on an iPhone X, the supposedly most powerful iPhone, and it can’t run a game from 2002? Restarting the program helps, but when you’re in the middle of a mission it’s very inconvenient.
Great except for...
by K-allen on 2016/11/03 21:19
Rockstar did an overall fantastic job in porting this game to iOS except for one major thing. The driving physics. Terrible terrible terrible. Imagine driving an RC car on ice covered in KY jelly and snot and this is what you get. Regardless of what car you have if you get the slightest bump from even a scooter you go spinning wildly. The PS2 version of this game had totally different physics for the cars than this version. I "borrowed" an ambulance to get away from Barney Fife and a stupid scooter ran into the side and the ambulance did a 360 and had chunks flying off. It's hard to enjoy this game when the driving is so difficult. Please fix in update. I will give 5 stars.
Frame drops on 7 Plus 11.3.1
by lec0rsaire on 2018/05/22 19:23
When this was first released, it ran great on the hardware of the time. iPad 2, 4S. It’s ridiculous than on a much more powerful device with an 10 Fusion and much stronger GPU, that frames are dropping like crazy on a game from 2002. I even bought the PS4 PSN version to play the game properly with a controller again but that emulated port is a total mess. I guess if I ever want to play this game again properly, I will have to buy a PS2 again or play it on PC. Such a shame since this is my favorite GTA of them all but it really is a chore to play on iOS and gaming should never feel this way.
Exactly what I was hoping for
by -TLG- on 2016/11/19 05:49
If you can spare the fee or have a gift card to burn through, this game is worth the money. I've had no problems with crashing, and the gameplay is a pretty solid and faithful reproduction of the PS version. Sometimes the sound cuts out if I leave the game running in the background unattended for a while, but I have no complaints otherwise, and that is a relatively minor complaint in the grand scheme of things. Looking forward to trying out San Andreas. Great work! Very satisfied customer here.
Fun but clumsy as heck
by spolta on 2017/12/08 20:06
The game is an okay port of the classic, all things considered - but the controls and the graphics have some pretty aggravating issues. The draw distance on my iPhone 8+ is horrific, if you drive any fast car you’re guaranteed to have cars and even BUILDINGS pop up and screw you over, sending your car flying into space (the driving physics are also crap). Maybe it’s just me, but the “joystick” is very buggy and difficult to use with any precision - if you plan on walking on a dock or any ledge near water, good luck. I considered giving it two stars, but I’ve been playing it pretty regularly, so I must be having fun I guess
good
by Ashley hates you :) on 2016/07/02 00:49
The only issue I have with it is when I go to do the "G-Spotlight" mission, when you're on the bike and you go through the glass and jump onto the next building and it says insane stunt bonus or whatever and when it's in slow motion, it stays that way. The camera angle won't change so I can't see where I'm going. It does the same thing when I do any stunt, it won't switch back to normal from the slow motion that happens when you do a stunt. I have to load the game again. I won't be able to get the G-Spotlight mission done unless you guys can fix this somehow...
Cool looking but almost unplayable
by Emilio454679953578933357 on 2017/02/25 03:53
The game itself looks pretty good. A little glitchy here and there but so is the original. Anyway there's this really annoying glitch when you're driving that makes it practically unplayable. When driving, the vehicle will drift to the right or left without pressing any turn buttons. Any vehicle in any condition will do this, no matter the control scheme. This makes it really hard to control your vehicle as you constantly have to make up for the drift by pressing the opposite direction. Really ruins it for me as some of the easy driving missions are just a pain, I almost threw my phone at the wall. Hopefully there's a way to fix this???
3 Bugs that need to be fixed
by GhástDoesMinecraft on 2017/09/26 21:28
First, this one happens pretty often and happens during dialogue. It's where nobody talks after a line is spoken, stoping cutscenes and dialogue. And it always happens when there's dialogue. Second, sometimes when firing a gun in a car, it fires a few shots before not working anymore. Third, Sometimes I can't jump out of a moving cat when pressing the exit button, but my character automatically gets out when the car stops. I hope these are fixed in the future.
Excellent game, horrible iPhone performance
by Chris Hollobaugh on 2018/10/28 06:04
I love this game. Another great installment in the GTA series. The gameplay is fairly smooth and the controls are very intuitive. My biggest problem and the one that makes the purchase a complete waste of money is that the game crashes at a certain point during game play and every time I try to reload the mission, the game instantly crashes. Now, when I try to load to a previously saved game, the game still crashes instantly. I’m trying to find a solution because I love this game and I’m eager to continue playing.
My progress. not the progress!!!!
by OnTheLau on 2017/03/04 23:25
Everything. Was. Erased. I am so angry I spent hours playing for my progress to be lost after the 3rd week of playing. Do you know how frustrating that is? Ugh I say well done on the transfer to IOS but please someone update these games. Especially if people are still buying them. If you can't find someone to work on updating it hire one of us players we would love to play this as the same game but with regular updates how any other iOS game does. Please and thank you I would give it a 5 but I'm so annoyed my progress is lost. After hours. Hours. Hours. Of playing 😞
GTA series are my go to iPad games
by Gtroates on 2016/07/19 18:30
I love the GTA series, I used to play them on my original Xbox (pre 360) and was happy to see they were available to play in iPad apps now. Vice City and San Andreas are my favorites because of the missions and the great radio stations to listen to while driving around in the vehicles. The iPad controls take a little while to get the hang of but so did the Xbox buttons when I first played these, no problems playing now.
Great Game but could use a bit of improvment
by Wreckitjk8 on 2018/02/13 00:07
This game is very good and offers a lot but when it comes to glitches and graphics there is a bit of a conversation. The only things that i would recommend is that the shooting is a bit weird, for example i was getting chased and i went to shoot at the police but i shot at a ped. In the mall i thought it was glitched out with the floor but it wasn’t it was the graphics. Other than that the game has a lot to offer, and overall a great game.
Great game
by Kolohe96793 on 2016/09/29 09:13
I have absolutely fell in love with this game. I highly recommend getting this. It has brought me back to my teenage years in a way of reliving that time through this game. Fortunately for me I never really played the right when it first came out. All I did was steal cars fight and kill people and of course get into chases and kill cops. Now I have been able to properly play this with the mobility of my iPad. It's worth every dollar.
Bugs/Freezing
by Simple_American on 2018/10/07 05:51
GTA Vice City is the only GTA on my iPhone that keeps freezing. The other GTA’s are working just fine. I just want people to be aware of that. I hope Rockstar makes an update soon. ——— Please Update the mobile controls for GTA. Gameloft’s Gangstar New Orleans & Las Vegas games have the best mobile controls for auto aiming/auto targeting, shooting, and driving. Rockstar’s ported iOS versions of the GTA series could learn from Gameloft’s Gangstar series because Gangstar has been especially optimized for mobile platforms.
Grand theft malware
by ThisAppIsBeyondBroken on 2017/11/30 12:23
Unable to be deleted once installed, not in setting not in the App Store and not the shaking X that appears if you hold the app long enough WILL NOT delete this app. Absolutely nothing wrong with the game itself but it is totally unable to be deleted. I've deleted it multiple times and every time I do and restart my phone it's always there as the icon, but not installed and you can't delete something if its not installed. I've never been so frustrated knowing that this malware of an app is always there and there's nothing I can do about it. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. It CAN NOT BE DELETED. I'm never in my life downloading any rockstar game or app on any iOS device ever again.
Great novelty and game
by stoner62 on 2016/12/26 20:54
It's so cool to have the ps2/Xbox original vice city on iPhone, half the fun it seems is just playing it on your phone, the game is the same as before so if you liked it before then you'll like it now, people who have only played gta5 probably would have trouble adjusting to it but it would be worth the try, it's really cheap to considering how much it was on console when it's the same game on iPhone
Great, but just its a little problem!
by Damaris 103 on 2016/06/18 21:41
This is a great game, but I can success a mission because there is a error: when I'm trying the mission of the motorcycle passing through the rooftops terraces I can't see in first person I'm just can see the big building in front of the window of the building and I see the map moving the point of my location. Please! Help me! To resolve this problem, can you please solve it?!
Welcome to the 80s
by Elliott1701 on 2018/11/16 18:50
Vice City is my favorite GTA ever. From the cars, to the buildings, to the music everything fits it's setting better than almost any game I know. I am so happy to see this on mobile. I have had no problems with freezing or crashing, and found that the controls were easy to learn. For the price I have not found a better game. So get your cassettes, and you padded suits and step back to one of the best decades ever!
Not Good Enough
by CS Roberts on 2018/01/25 14:47
This game looks great, everything I saw looked just as it did on PS2, very impressive; however, the controls ruined the reminiscent experience. The controls for driving were awful, especially on motorcycles, they dragged from left to right, and it was an overall bad design decision. Perhaps using tilt controls would have been more enjoyable. Since driving is such an important part of the game, I only gave two stars-it does get credit for the accuracy of Vice City, to the last detail. This may be the case of a game that cannot be successfully applied to smartphones.
UNPLAYABLE on iPhone X
by Wyatt Murphy on 2018/01/16 21:01
This app USED to work on my iPhone just fine, but ever since I purchased my iPhone X, I cannot play the game properly. The majority of the controls are split from an imaginary bezel from the large screen. The game is cropping itself to fit on the screen, but in doing so is losing the controls. On my display, I can press the brake pedal and camera buttons perfectly, as well as use the D-Pad. However, the gas pedal is cut in half off-screen and unresponsive in this area, and the rest of the controls are completely hidden. Will update this review when Rockstar fixes the issue. It’s a shame my $4.99 game won’t work on Apple’s flagship phone.
Looks better than the original!
by bschwitty on 2016/06/05 19:33
It still amazes me that a game that blew my mind nearly 15 years ago now is in the palm of my hand. This was a marvel on the PS2 and now it works better than before and is portable... Amazing. Only complaint is the touch controls makes it hard to drive and shoot which is why I've not given it 5 stars. I've tried all the different touch controls and haven't found one that was as good as having a controller.
Nostalgia at its finest!
by Vettywap on 2018/10/18 23:20
Wow! I usually don’t leave reviews unless I have a bad experience but this game runs seamlessly so far and I’m very impressed at the iOS port. No glitches, no problems. The scenery is vibrant and the game is just as fun as I remember without the clunky camera angles and controls on ps2. Well done on this one rockstar! I may check out Bully next! My only request is that you bring Manhunt to mobile!
Always coming back
by SamHamBam on 2017/12/07 07:24
This game is always going to be in my top 10 mobile games list, I always come back to this and play it , I even restart the whole story and play it . You won't regret this game. I would like to say thank you rockstar and if you can if it's not to much plz give us a cool little update for the people we still have and play this game like me thank you
It's Great Not Perfect
by Sojjddssssijfjdjdj on 2017/07/19 20:10
The graphics are amazing. The whole story line and game is great. However the crashes are horrible. Every time the app crashes I can't open the game. So I deleted the app then re downloaded. Then when I opened the app..... all my progress is gone and I have to start all over. It's annoying! So far the game has only crashed on me twice. I hope it doesn't happen again and it gets repaired soon as possible.
Rockstar Social Club Error
by MikeWIZ29 on 2017/06/08 14:54
So far I've been unsuccessful in trying to log in to my Rockstar Social Club with every Rockstar game on my iPhone. I'm not sure why that is because I know for a fact that my password is correct each time. Now I can't use cloud save spaces, which is very annoying considering that if I change my phone, I wouldn't be able to access my saves over a variety of phones. This needs to be fixed. I will be posting this on each Rockstar title until then.
Multiple Frame Drops and Freezing. iPhone XS MAX.
by Nightmarepro on 2019/01/06 14:54
Game started smooth and enjoyable. After I unlocked the second Island issues started to happen with Frame drops and freezing. I have to close the app and open the app multiple times but issue persists. Issue happens about 30% of the time I’m playing, and it becomes more commend when I’m doing missions on the second island. With no issues, the game is fun and super enjoyable, is a full game with no comercial or ads like those free to play games.
Please remaster for Xbox one
by Shaunaster on 2018/09/17 01:17
This game is the reason why I love video games. I started playing GTA Vice City in 4th grade on my brothers original Xbox, then my dad got me a 360 shortly after. I play now on my iPhone 8 Plus, but I would love to play on my Xbox again. It would be a dream come true because the soundtrack, map, cars, and missions are the best in Vice City. It would be even better with updated graphics.
Phenomenal
by Zeromwatson on 2017/05/14 05:26
Current iPhone software makes this 2002 Rockstar "revolutionary" gaming development, seem unrealistic on a handheld device back then. With such attention to detail regarding a theme based in the 1980s, and distant memories brought back it life, in about the time it takes for this game to sync to your iCloud. You will spend hours reabsorbing the story GTA Vice city had paved for us and appreciate every minute of it.
Please read
by Vice city expert on 2018/09/07 02:45
I’ve found many bugs and glitches in the game and one is in the northern shopping mall I don’t know how it works but now my controls are permanently broke and I can’t do nothing about it. Also the game freezes from time to time please fix that aswell I just don’t understand why y’all can’t fix it but I love the game please read rockstar.
Good console port
by Here's Johnnie on 2016/08/17 02:43
As someone who played GTA:Vice City for hours and hours as a teen, I've gotta admit that everything feels legit for the most part. You lose some functionality being on a tablet but that's expected. Also, not sure if there are any cheat codes like there were on console but I feel like that would make some quests easier where you have "less" control of your character compared to a controller.
Ermahgerd (edit review 4years later)
by JaiKorea on 2018/09/12 18:43
(This is only my experience) I'm kinda disappointed because they said that the size was 887MB and my phone has 1.4GB (NOTICE: 1GB= 1024MB) left but it kept saying that it can't download because it doesn't have enough space. I'm sure it's a great game because I played it whenever I visit a friends house. EDIT: I recall playing this game when I was younger on the play station 2. Was irks great now. Thanks!

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
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.

GTA Vice city in all its glory...
by Steven X. on 2019/02/17 11:43
the original game remastered in HD. So glad they recently improved the quality of life issues and added graphical improvements as this is simply a gaming gem. I hope they continue to improve the graphics and really let this game showcase all the power of the new iPads.
Finally updated
by AceFrehley7878 on 2019/02/17 05:27

Everytime i drive a car it pulls to the left , i bout the game cause i love rockstar and they games , i wish i could get a refund cause that was 6$ wasted on a game i cant even play, it downloaded just fine loaded up just fine but as soon as i get in a car it cant drive right.

by Flanua on 2019/02/16 22:47
Please fix UI for iPad Pro 12.9, bring hud to the right and not on the middle of the screen, make ui look as it supposed to be.
Excellent
by PeiYu Cai on 2019/02/16 14:38
For supporting iOS 12 and optimizing for iPad Pro
Thank God

iPhone XR update
by P.O.R.T.E.S_S on 2019/02/14 05:35
This needs an update for the iPhone XR. The layout isn’t good
Grateful for the update.
by racerhomie on 2019/02/14 03:34
Rockstar, thanks for allowing the developers to update GTA Vice City. I have a Logitech Powershell for playing GTA & the lag made it awful. 🐛 For folks with older versions of GTA 3, Chinatown Wars turn off WiFi & Cellular data from the Control Center on iOS 12. This fixes some of the lag of the game.

Needs update for full screen on iPhone X just like GTA 3 app.
by Dylan Aldrich on 2019/02/13 01:52
Other than that it needing an update for it to be supported full screen on iPhone X I wouldn’t have any complaints. Thanks for finally giving this game full screen support. Can we get a full screen support for GTA 3 now?
Even better after recent update.
by Pico 2 on 2019/02/13 01:46
After the iPhone X and Xs update. This game looks so much better and can’t believe how nice it looks now. So glad they updated it. Really awesome update!

I don’t want to know why, but my iPhone 5s freezes completely on is 12. Improve!!! Who are you rockstar if you cant make a game. You are robbers and liars!!!! All your games have not optimized since 2016

by Mike_G4life on 2019/02/12 08:17
Yeah barely can play it on iPhone 8plus cutscenes lag and skip dialogue etc please fix for iPhone 8plus.
Please Optimize for iOS 12
by Mateo187 on 2019/02/11 20:51
Please make game playable with iOS 12 as I can not get anywhere as it freezes every 5 seconds. And it’s frustrating that I have not been able to play a game I have paid for. I see that it was last updated 3 years ago it’s time to optimize it for iOS 12 and newer devices so we can once again play this game without it freezing every 5 seconds
Do not buy!!!
by charlie1444 on 2019/02/11 13:44
I love rockstar games as well as the entire gta franchise but this game is absolutely in playable if your trying too have a nice placing experience basically your gonna pay 5 dollars for an unplayable game my xs won’t even run it

Great game just not for mobile
by Rip8810 on 2019/02/06 00:23
Controls are clunky as can be with way more aggressive drivers than original that will literally run you down and circle u on the streets. Cops speed is practically tripled from original and cops basically warp to u and bust u in seconds if theyre near your vehicle. Aiming is meh, driving is horrible. Made me wana do nothin but jus go play it on pc.
Super buggy
by mdwashek on 2019/02/05 14:50
I loved this game when it came out on ps2. I got this to feel some of that gta nostalgia, but within 5 mins of playing the game was freezing and glitching, and I was playing on the 2018 iPad Pro. I love the game, but until it’s fixed, I would not recommend this port

Lag issue
by nikewavecap on 2019/02/01 02:31
So I start the game will play for like 2min. And there’s a small lag every couple sec and it hasn’t stop. A slight pause every time and it’s annoying makes the game unplayable disappointed I spent the money I did on a buggy game.
LAGSSS!!!
by selenaflores95 on 2019/02/01 00:17

Keeps freezing
by Lord Dukwad on 2019/01/30 02:51
Please optimize devices such as 6s or 7 to stop making this game freeze. I really want to play as it brings back good memories when it came out
Does not work on iOS 12
by Jstn H on 2019/01/30 02:29
Hello gentlemen and gentlewoman. I apologize for the single star but hoped you may read this. Vice city staggers and is unplayable on iOS 12. I made it to the point of purchasing property in the game and it collapsed on me — freezing every few seconds. I have a new iPad Pro with Apple’s latest updates and do not believe it is the device, especially given that all other apps/games function without issue. Anyway, I love the game and hope you can resolve the problem. Kindest Regards.

It freezes every 5 seconds!
by Pierreo345 on 2019/01/29 22:59
It is nice to be able to play a PS2 title on the iPhone but it is disappointing that it freezes every 5 seconds once in while. I wouldn't complain at all but I paid for this.

This game is great but the screen freezes up quite often for a few seconds and then just plays smooth but will do it again in like 1 minute PLEASE fix this so i can enjoy my childhood flashbacks thank you
Vice City lags
by Irishbloke218 on 2019/01/29 03:19
Rockstar needs to update this game. It lags on my iPad 2 iPad 3 iPhone 6s+ and now iPhone XS+. Why? It never happened on the older devices. Now it’s so bad that even when you restart it takes about 1 minute before it lags. Please update the GTA games and then I’d say 5 stars!
Fix Please

by chandra456 on 2019/01/28 23:04
So when I first got the game it was great until I completed the mission “waste the wife” after that it got so laggy I couldn’t even do the next missions I’m experiencing lag spikes that last as long as 15 seconds just for a split second of movement If any developer reads this please tell me ways to fix it
I want to like it
by Jamie M. 😎 on 2019/01/27 23:05
I never played it before but I’m a huge fan of GTA 3 and San Andreas. I’m running it on a iPhone 8 64gb sized with a bunch of free space it was running really good but now for some reason after I play for 5 mins it skips to where I can’t move anywhere on the map.

Waste of money.
by PresidentGunner on 2019/01/24 00:07
I don’t know what rockstars idea of “logical or lifelike” is but it’s not this game. Let’s take a couple thing into account. You can’t swim. When you are hiding from the cops the helicopters lights shine threw overhangs. Cops guns shoot threw walls, rooms over miles. I do not think you fully thought the design of this game. It takes literally nothing to kill you. But jumping off a roof haha. You can jump off the highest roof and not die. All in all the game was not good. The story line sucked, the gameplay was so spotty it was unbelievable. The ethics of this game really make no sense I can get slammed into by a cop car and get slung across the road, take that cop car and it blow up the first thing I hit. Rockstar made sure to make it to where the character WOULD NOT stand up after jumping out the car. I was really disappointed. I think I could do a better job with this game myself and I have no experience in game design.

I love GTA and I love Vice City but it doesn’t work with me. It lags to much and it keeps changing positions from the back or the the front and it throws my driving off it’s so annoying. Please fix this problem. I don’t want to get rid of the game.
The sounds are off
by RowdyPooch on 2019/01/16 22:46
I wish there was more to the sounds. For example, when driving you cant turn up the radio but the car is so loud. I wish there was a way to change the sound of the cars. Even good cars shouldnt sound like they are breaking down. ALSO I JUST NOW GOT THE CRASHING AND I CANT GET BACK ONTO THE APP. 😡😡😡
Great game but....
by Calvintae on 2019/01/16 19:37
Plays so good and smooth for the first 2 minutes and then constantly ‘buffers’ or lags every 2 seconds... Shame too that Rockstar doesn’t make any updates I noticed. I’ll be getting my refund for this game and not buy anymore GTA’s mobile till the devs start putting updates out for these bugs..
Unplayable

junk game
by hateGTA on 2019/01/15 10:55
if you check game description this game is compatible with IOS 5.1.1 which means it must be compatible with Iphone 3GS and newer models. but it is no truth. This game freezes, glitches and crashes on IPAD PRO 12.9" 1st gen. and Iphone 7 PLUS. Don't waste money. Don't buy this game. It will be better to remove this junk game from APPStore
:(

Freezes and glitches

All this game does is freeze and glitch. I want my money back.
Great game, but needs to be improved
by Eugene849362849837 on 2018/02/11 20:03
This is a great game, I’m not gonna lie. A few years back, I used to play this on my iPhone 6 a few years back, and I loved it. I would usually fool around in the game when I wasn’t doing missions and I would get 6 stars, steal tanks, and store them in my garage. It was a lot of fun. However, at that time, I didn’t know about cloud saves, and it was time for a new phone. I got the iPhone 7 Plus now, which is what I have now, and I decided to reinstall this game and play it again. However, whenever I play on my iPhone 7 Plus, for some reason, the performance is worse than when I used to play on my iPhone 6! There are frame drops, the game freezes for a few seconds quite often, then resumes playing. The most aggravating thing is that whenever I would exit the game and come right back, whether it’s to check the time or how much battery I have left, the game would freeze, then crash. I would even pause the game and pull down my notifications or pull up my control center, and the game freezes and crashes. What’s the point of a pause menu if I can’t even lock my phone or exit the app without returning to a game that freezes and crashes? Please improve this
Pretty solid and just like I remembered!
by Sassafras guy on 2018/04/12 14:41
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!
Several bugs to be fixed!
by Sultanofswag89 on 2017/05/22 14:51
I give this game 4 stars for being pretty faithful to the 2002 original. However, there are bugs that need to be fixed. Firstly, sometimes when I get into a car, he camera doesn't move with it, and stays at the place that I got in the car. I can fix this by pressing the POV button when you are in a car, though. I still would like this fixed. Secondly, sometimes when I resume a certain save file, the game remains on a black screen and I have to reenter the game. I do this, only for the black screen to happen again on the same save file. Thirdly, there are times when I shoot my gun in a car, and it won't shoot. Only one shot will work, and the gun will stop working. Fourthly, sometimes in general after a few shots, the gun doesn't shoot anymore. Don't know if this is intentional or if the original did the same. Fifthly, if a car explodes and the screen gets a shaky effect, sometimes it keeps shaking, even minutes after the explosion. Sixthly, when I drive a car up a ramp and the game goes into a slo-mo mode, the camera never goes back to the car and the game is still in slo-mo speed. A lot of issues to be fixed. Fix these, and I will give 5 stars. Thx you.
Great game, but ridiculously glitchy!
by Xannies4All on 2018/10/24 05:07
I really wanted to enjoy this game, but get far enough into it and the game becomes very glitchy and choppy. I got to the mission “Cop Land” and had to restart it at least 5 times to get the game to stop freezing every second. After that the experience got so bad that anything else I did afterwards would just do the exact same thing. This is off my iPhone 7 BTW so it may work for you. But what’s the deal here? It’s a wonderful game that you can’t even play, but I guess this company’s too invested in making unreasonably priced cars in GTA Online than properly optimizing their games. I like how the game would operate without overheating the phone, but I really think they could’ve done better. And what I hate about this is they know they could’ve done better too. At this point it’s been three days in and I honestly think I should get my money back knowing they probably don’t care to optimize this. Such a shame since I really looked forward to playing this.

I personally think that this is the best GTA game in the franchise. This game has free roam, 80's nostalgia, and a great storyline. This game has what a lot of other games lacked back in the early 2000's. I really hope that games today will have a great impact on the upcoming games to be released, like this game did with games today. My only complaint about this games is the control style. I know that a lot of other people would say that the graphics are outdated, but I don't think that a game should be based on its graphics, it's based on it's impact it has on the player. I really hope that Rockstar Games will keep trying to improve the gaming industry. Overall I give this game 9/10. It is a great game and if you have never played and you're an open minded person I strongly suggest to give this game a try.
So many BUGS!!!
by ChapoJr. on 2017/07/17 03:10
I have been playing it for several weeks now and i have had to delete the app and download it again many times. The game is really fun. Brings back many childhood memories but the bugs just aggravate me. I want to finish buying the trilogy but dont want to waste my money if the bugs dont get fixed. I cant jump out of a car on fire like in the console game, after shooting the pistol or shot gun many times it doesnt shoot anymore, it has many glitches and lags way too much. I am up to Love Fist concert where the psycho shoots the guard and it just freezes there. Before this one when i first downloaded the game it wouldnt finish the missions it would just end at the point after all the Haitian, Cuban and love fist missions finish. The last mission is killing Lance and whatever other missions before that i dont get. It needs to be fixed first so i can decide on buying the trilogy.
Waste of money.

I don’t know what rockstars idea of “logical or lifelike” is but it’s not this game. Let’s take a couple thing into account. You can’t swim. When you are hiding from the cops the helicopters lights shine threw overhangs. Cops guns shoot threw walls, rooms over miles. I do not think you fully thought the design of this game. It takes literally nothing to kill you. But jumping off a roof haha. You can jump off the highest roof and not die. All in all the game was not good. The story line sucked, the gameplay was so spotty it was unbelievable. The ethics of this game really make no sense I can get slammed into by a cop car and get slung across the road, take that cop car and it blow up the first thing I hit. Rockstar made sure to make it to where the character WOULD NOT stand up after jumping out the car. I was really disappointed. I think I could do a better job with this game myself and I have no experience in game design.
Amazing game, but one problem
by Alyana J on 2018/05/16 13:11
I would like to rate this game 5-stars because it’s very fun, but recently when the game was loading for me to play, it crashed. I refreshed the game and tried to load the game again, but it keeps crashing and crashing. I’ve tried to restart my device, but it still crashes. I offloaded the app (because I didn’t want to lose its data) and re-installed it again but when the game was loading, it crashed again! Please fix this problem. I am desperate to play the game again because it is an amazing game. It has been 2 days since the crashing problem occurred. I hope you’ll see this, Rockstar. And if you do, thanks for reading and please fix this problem right away.
The game play is amazing for an IOS version.
by Optimistic facebook user on 2018/08/19 11:19
The game is great. It brings me back like when I used to play on the Play Station console. My only issue right now is I paid for this game and it sometimes freezes during game play and then resumes. It crashed on me a fee seconds ago but I can still log back in and play where I left off. Other than the game play seconds freezes, the game is perfect. Controls are easy to use all around. Now I’m experiencing that it won’t play the game anymore. It will show the R and everything else, but when I hit resume game or load my save game. It will just suddenly crash and go back to my home screen.
Great game just an odd platform
by biggbran23 on 2017/12/27 02:45
The game itself is great, it’s a classic. Being adapted to an iPhone is the strange part that takes away from the enjoyment. Makes me want to go find my old ps2 and play the game properly. The analog stick simulator is hard to get used to, makes it hard to be precise while driving or attacking people. Another problem is you can’t change the radio stations. Lastly you can’t use cheat codes. Despite all of that it’s still very enjoyable to pull it up to kill 10 minutes and the load times are much faster than on the ps2. Lol. It’s definitely worth the small price and hassle to relive one of my favorite games right on my phone. For that I’ll give it 4 stars.
THIS IS RIDICULOUS!
by DrEaMeR-cHiCk on 2016/06/18 17:31
I bought this game because I had a problem with the original GTA. There was a glitch where it would not let me resume my game that I had spent hours on! I started a new file bc the game was so much fun, and then after hours of playing, the EXACT SAME THING happened to the new file (this is for the GTA original)! I love this game because it is so much fun, and after countless hours of playing, I left the game and came back, and to my frustration, it would not let me play my saved game! I have tried resetting my iPad, and restarting the app, and updating my system, but I still cannot resume my game!!! I have spent hours on this game and I do not want to delete the app and lose all of my progress, but what is the freaking point when I can't even play what I have spent HOURS achieving!! I have spent money on this game and the original and it is a HUGE WASTE!!!!!
A classic
by mushr00m_m00n on 2017/02/03 21:07
Vice City is an undisputed classic GTA, with its own self contained personality far distinct from all of the others in the series. My favorite GTA - and the iOS version actually has some features which make the game more manageable than the original, such as replaying failed mission with the click of a button rather than having to make your way to the mission start point over and over on your own. Also the lock on for aiming seems more automated and in most cases this helps but can be frustrating if you can't lock onto a specific target. Overall a classic, somehow miraculously preserved for the iPhone.
Pure crap
by 2648264739 on 2018/06/08 20:11
The program designers made aspects of this game nearly impossible and redundant. I purchased with the intent of having a random and open experience, not having my options limited by the programmers idea of enjoyment for themselves. If I pay them money, they don’t get that right, they sold that right. I expect to be able to play as I wish without having my paid for product limited due to a programmer’s idea of what they I should and should not be doing. When I pay for something, I expect to get everything I paid for. The designers intentionally limit the games attributes despite having been paid in full. This game will make you jump through hoops and then some to be able to unlock all the attributes that you should be able to get it you properly paid for this program. As I stated prior, this is pure crap.
Practically unplayable on newer iOS devices
by scottmac112 on 2018/04/06 16:39
The game itself is great. Unfortunately Rockstar seems to have abandoned these iOS ports to their detriment. And for whatever reason GTA III and Vice City perform miserably on devices newer than the iPhone 7 (the iPad Pro included, which I bought with the partial intention of playing these games on). The games freeze multiple times per minute, many times for three or more seconds at a time, making gameplay almost impossible. I’ve tried force quitting all other apps, rebooting prior to play, turning off Low Power Mode, turning on Limit Refresh Rate, turning off True Tone, and nothing seems to make these perform like on my old iPad Air or iPhone 7. Please fix these, Rockstar. And buyers beware unless you’re using an older iOS device.
LAG
by PistolvaniaDevil on 2018/12/09 09:22
What in the world is going on. Loved this game. Always have. Loved it even more updated on my phone. Got to the second island and beat all the car dealership side missions. Everything was fine. Then the lag started. Random times, pretty much breaks the game while it’s happening. It won’t go away. Uninstalled the game. Re installed it. Deleted saves. Started over. Still game breaking lag. Spent $5 on this crap just to have the game break repeatedly. Have since bought GTA-LCS and it so far has no issues. Very confused as to how this can be possible for an older less graphically enhanced game to have this big of an issues years after its release on such a new model of iPhone. Will be contacting Apple for a refund if this doesn’t improve. Way disappointed. Please finish projects you start. For once rockstar.
Really good tough mechanics
by Thunderyorb4 on 2017/12/14 20:13
I love this game it's really the mechanics are fun to play. The challenge is very spot on when you die you restart the chapter but since their not that long the game doesn't really feel like it's been sadistic. The game allows to choose your own approach with each mission while using the open world. The characters a funny and unique never clique. But the game has some bugs a the driving can be very floaty. But it's still a good game I give it 10/10 it's not perfect but very good. It's legendary and one of the best games today that holds up compared to modern titles.
Best GTA game to this day
by Mygirlisyourgirl on 2017/11/02 02:54
Vice city will and always is the best GTA game there is. But that's on ps2 because the app game doesn't allow cheat codes and it glitches way to much there controls don't work well on iPad and when I have to pass the helicopter picking up bombs mission doesn't work cause camera won't shift to see where I'm going. It's impossible to pass this mission on iTunes but I've passed it on a ps2 and Xbox before many times. So I can imagine how much harder it would be to pass harder missions on this app. But good game to play if I'm not home and bored! Best ITunes game I've played by far.
Game crash before loading
by Stanky_ninja404 on 2017/09/26 11:48
This game was perfectly fine until about today because whenever I try to play the game it gets to the loading screen about 5% away from being done then it will crash and put me into my home screen so if this could be fixed then that would be good also because I paid like $5 for this game they better fix this please and thank you also I just tried turning off my phone and all this other stuff and it still not working so rockstar please fix this!! I wouldn't care if it was free but I paid like $5 like I said earlier so just fix this please
Just like I remembered
by Hxucfcvivig on 2017/12/06 17:36
I’m giving 4 stars because the game doesn’t seem like it has changed at all since it was first released in 2002. My only issue is that it’s not optimized to run on a phone. The controls are a little awkward at first, and sometimes they make it difficult to do missions I’d fly through on a PS2. Another issue is that after about 10 minutes of playing the game begins to stutter. I’m playing on an iPhone X, the supposedly most powerful iPhone, and it can’t run a game from 2002? Restarting the program helps, but when you’re in the middle of a mission it’s very inconvenient.
Great except for...
by K-allen on 2016/11/03 21:19
Rockstar did an overall fantastic job in porting this game to iOS except for one major thing. The driving physics. Terrible terrible terrible. Imagine driving an RC car on ice covered in KY jelly and snot and this is what you get. Regardless of what car you have if you get the slightest bump from even a scooter you go spinning wildly. The PS2 version of this game had totally different physics for the cars than this version. I "borrowed" an ambulance to get away from Barney Fife and a stupid scooter ran into the side and the ambulance did a 360 and had chunks flying off. It's hard to enjoy this game when the driving is so difficult. Please fix in update. I will give 5 stars.
Frame drops on 7 Plus 11.3.1
by lec0rsaire on 2018/05/22 19:23
When this was first released, it ran great on the hardware of the time. iPad 2, 4S. It’s ridiculous than on a much more powerful device with an 10 Fusion and much stronger GPU, that frames are dropping like crazy on a game from 2002. I even bought the PS4 PSN version to play the game properly with a controller again but that emulated port is a total mess. I guess if I ever want to play this game again properly, I will have to buy a PS2 again or play it on PC. Such a shame since this is my favorite GTA of them all but it really is a chore to play on iOS and gaming should never feel this way.
Exactly what I was hoping for
by -TLG- on 2016/11/19 05:49
If you can spare the fee or have a gift card to burn through, this game is worth the money. I've had no problems with crashing, and the gameplay is a pretty solid and faithful reproduction of the PS version. Sometimes the sound cuts out if I leave the game running in the background unattended for a while, but I have no complaints otherwise, and that is a relatively minor complaint in the grand scheme of things. Looking forward to trying out San Andreas. Great work! Very satisfied customer here.
Fun but clumsy as heck
by spolta on 2017/12/08 20:06
The game is an okay port of the classic, all things considered - but the controls and the graphics have some pretty aggravating issues. The draw distance on my iPhone 8+ is horrific, if you drive any fast car you’re guaranteed to have cars and even BUILDINGS pop up and screw you over, sending your car flying into space (the driving physics are also crap). Maybe it’s just me, but the “joystick” is very buggy and difficult to use with any precision - if you plan on walking on a dock or any ledge near water, good luck. I considered giving it two stars, but I’ve been playing it pretty regularly, so I must be having fun I guess
good
by Ashley hates you :) on 2016/07/02 00:49
The only issue I have with it is when I go to do the "G-Spotlight" mission, when you're on the bike and you go through the glass and jump onto the next building and it says insane stunt bonus or whatever and when it's in slow motion, it stays that way. The camera angle won't change so I can't see where I'm going. It does the same thing when I do any stunt, it won't switch back to normal from the slow motion that happens when you do a stunt. I have to load the game again. I won't be able to get the G-Spotlight mission done unless you guys can fix this somehow...
Cool looking but almost unplayable
by Emilio454679953578933357 on 2017/02/25 03:53
The game itself looks pretty good. A little glitchy here and there but so is the original. Anyway there's this really annoying glitch when you're driving that makes it practically unplayable. When driving, the vehicle will drift to the right or left without pressing any turn buttons. Any vehicle in any condition will do this, no matter the control scheme. This makes it really hard to control your vehicle as you constantly have to make up for the drift by pressing the opposite direction. Really ruins it for me as some of the easy driving missions are just a pain, I almost threw my phone at the wall. Hopefully there's a way to fix this???
3 Bugs that need to be fixed
by GhástDoesMinecraft on 2017/09/26 21:28
First, this one happens pretty often and happens during dialogue. It's where nobody talks after a line is spoken, stoping cutscenes and dialogue. And it always happens when there's dialogue. Second, sometimes when firing a gun in a car, it fires a few shots before not working anymore. Third, Sometimes I can't jump out of a moving cat when pressing the exit button, but my character automatically gets out when the car stops. I hope these are fixed in the future.
Excellent game, horrible iPhone performance
by Chris Hollobaugh on 2018/10/28 06:04
I love this game. Another great installment in the GTA series. The gameplay is fairly smooth and the controls are very intuitive. My biggest problem and the one that makes the purchase a complete waste of money is that the game crashes at a certain point during game play and every time I try to reload the mission, the game instantly crashes. Now, when I try to load to a previously saved game, the game still crashes instantly. I’m trying to find a solution because I love this game and I’m eager to continue playing.
My progress. not the progress!!!!
by OnTheLau on 2017/03/04 23:25
Everything. Was. Erased. I am so angry I spent hours playing for my progress to be lost after the 3rd week of playing. Do you know how frustrating that is? Ugh I say well done on the transfer to IOS but please someone update these games. Especially if people are still buying them. If you can't find someone to work on updating it hire one of us players we would love to play this as the same game but with regular updates how any other iOS game does. Please and thank you I would give it a 5 but I'm so annoyed my progress is lost. After hours. Hours. Hours. Of playing 😞
GTA series are my go to iPad games
by Gtroates on 2016/07/19 18:30
I love the GTA series, I used to play them on my original Xbox (pre 360) and was happy to see they were available to play in iPad apps now. Vice City and San Andreas are my favorites because of the missions and the great radio stations to listen to while driving around in the vehicles. The iPad controls take a little while to get the hang of but so did the Xbox buttons when I first played these, no problems playing now.
Great Game but could use a bit of improvment
by Wreckitjk8 on 2018/02/13 00:07
This game is very good and offers a lot but when it comes to glitches and graphics there is a bit of a conversation. The only things that i would recommend is that the shooting is a bit weird, for example i was getting chased and i went to shoot at the police but i shot at a ped. In the mall i thought it was glitched out with the floor but it wasn’t it was the graphics. Other than that the game has a lot to offer, and overall a great game.
Great game
by Kolohe96793 on 2016/09/29 09:13
I have absolutely fell in love with this game. I highly recommend getting this. It has brought me back to my teenage years in a way of reliving that time through this game. Fortunately for me I never really played the right when it first came out. All I did was steal cars fight and kill people and of course get into chases and kill cops. Now I have been able to properly play this with the mobility of my iPad. It's worth every dollar.
Bugs/Freezing
by Simple_American on 2018/10/07 05:51
GTA Vice City is the only GTA on my iPhone that keeps freezing. The other GTA’s are working just fine. I just want people to be aware of that. I hope Rockstar makes an update soon. ——— Please Update the mobile controls for GTA. Gameloft’s Gangstar New Orleans & Las Vegas games have the best mobile controls for auto aiming/auto targeting, shooting, and driving. Rockstar’s ported iOS versions of the GTA series could learn from Gameloft’s Gangstar series because Gangstar has been especially optimized for mobile platforms.
Grand theft malware
by ThisAppIsBeyondBroken on 2017/11/30 12:23
Unable to be deleted once installed, not in setting not in the App Store and not the shaking X that appears if you hold the app long enough WILL NOT delete this app. Absolutely nothing wrong with the game itself but it is totally unable to be deleted. I've deleted it multiple times and every time I do and restart my phone it's always there as the icon, but not installed and you can't delete something if its not installed. I've never been so frustrated knowing that this malware of an app is always there and there's nothing I can do about it. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. It CAN NOT BE DELETED. I'm never in my life downloading any rockstar game or app on any iOS device ever again.
Great novelty and game
by stoner62 on 2016/12/26 20:54
It's so cool to have the ps2/Xbox original vice city on iPhone, half the fun it seems is just playing it on your phone, the game is the same as before so if you liked it before then you'll like it now, people who have only played gta5 probably would have trouble adjusting to it but it would be worth the try, it's really cheap to considering how much it was on console when it's the same game on iPhone
Great, but just its a little problem!
by Damaris 103 on 2016/06/18 21:41
This is a great game, but I can success a mission because there is a error: when I'm trying the mission of the motorcycle passing through the rooftops terraces I can't see in first person I'm just can see the big building in front of the window of the building and I see the map moving the point of my location. Please! Help me! To resolve this problem, can you please solve it?!
Welcome to the 80s
by Elliott1701 on 2018/11/16 18:50
Vice City is my favorite GTA ever. From the cars, to the buildings, to the music everything fits it's setting better than almost any game I know. I am so happy to see this on mobile. I have had no problems with freezing or crashing, and found that the controls were easy to learn. For the price I have not found a better game. So get your cassettes, and you padded suits and step back to one of the best decades ever!
Not Good Enough
by CS Roberts on 2018/01/25 14:47
This game looks great, everything I saw looked just as it did on PS2, very impressive; however, the controls ruined the reminiscent experience. The controls for driving were awful, especially on motorcycles, they dragged from left to right, and it was an overall bad design decision. Perhaps using tilt controls would have been more enjoyable. Since driving is such an important part of the game, I only gave two stars-it does get credit for the accuracy of Vice City, to the last detail. This may be the case of a game that cannot be successfully applied to smartphones.
UNPLAYABLE on iPhone X
by Wyatt Murphy on 2018/01/16 21:01
This app USED to work on my iPhone just fine, but ever since I purchased my iPhone X, I cannot play the game properly. The majority of the controls are split from an imaginary bezel from the large screen. The game is cropping itself to fit on the screen, but in doing so is losing the controls. On my display, I can press the brake pedal and camera buttons perfectly, as well as use the D-Pad. However, the gas pedal is cut in half off-screen and unresponsive in this area, and the rest of the controls are completely hidden. Will update this review when Rockstar fixes the issue. It’s a shame my $4.99 game won’t work on Apple’s flagship phone.
Looks better than the original!
by bschwitty on 2016/06/05 19:33
It still amazes me that a game that blew my mind nearly 15 years ago now is in the palm of my hand. This was a marvel on the PS2 and now it works better than before and is portable... Amazing. Only complaint is the touch controls makes it hard to drive and shoot which is why I've not given it 5 stars. I've tried all the different touch controls and haven't found one that was as good as having a controller.
Nostalgia at its finest!
by Vettywap on 2018/10/18 23:20
Wow! I usually don’t leave reviews unless I have a bad experience but this game runs seamlessly so far and I’m very impressed at the iOS port. No glitches, no problems. The scenery is vibrant and the game is just as fun as I remember without the clunky camera angles and controls on ps2. Well done on this one rockstar! I may check out Bully next! My only request is that you bring Manhunt to mobile!
Always coming back
by SamHamBam on 2017/12/07 07:24
This game is always going to be in my top 10 mobile games list, I always come back to this and play it , I even restart the whole story and play it . You won't regret this game. I would like to say thank you rockstar and if you can if it's not to much plz give us a cool little update for the people we still have and play this game like me thank you
It's Great Not Perfect
by Sojjddssssijfjdjdj on 2017/07/19 20:10
The graphics are amazing. The whole story line and game is great. However the crashes are horrible. Every time the app crashes I can't open the game. So I deleted the app then re downloaded. Then when I opened the app..... all my progress is gone and I have to start all over. It's annoying! So far the game has only crashed on me twice. I hope it doesn't happen again and it gets repaired soon as possible.
Rockstar Social Club Error
by MikeWIZ29 on 2017/06/08 14:54
So far I've been unsuccessful in trying to log in to my Rockstar Social Club with every Rockstar game on my iPhone. I'm not sure why that is because I know for a fact that my password is correct each time. Now I can't use cloud save spaces, which is very annoying considering that if I change my phone, I wouldn't be able to access my saves over a variety of phones. This needs to be fixed. I will be posting this on each Rockstar title until then.
Multiple Frame Drops and Freezing. iPhone XS MAX.
by Nightmarepro on 2019/01/06 14:54
Game started smooth and enjoyable. After I unlocked the second Island issues started to happen with Frame drops and freezing. I have to close the app and open the app multiple times but issue persists. Issue happens about 30% of the time I’m playing, and it becomes more commend when I’m doing missions on the second island. With no issues, the game is fun and super enjoyable, is a full game with no comercial or ads like those free to play games.
Please remaster for Xbox one
by Shaunaster on 2018/09/17 01:17
This game is the reason why I love video games. I started playing GTA Vice City in 4th grade on my brothers original Xbox, then my dad got me a 360 shortly after. I play now on my iPhone 8 Plus, but I would love to play on my Xbox again. It would be a dream come true because the soundtrack, map, cars, and missions are the best in Vice City. It would be even better with updated graphics.
Phenomenal
by Zeromwatson on 2017/05/14 05:26
Current iPhone software makes this 2002 Rockstar "revolutionary" gaming development, seem unrealistic on a handheld device back then. With such attention to detail regarding a theme based in the 1980s, and distant memories brought back it life, in about the time it takes for this game to sync to your iCloud. You will spend hours reabsorbing the story GTA Vice city had paved for us and appreciate every minute of it.
Please read
by Vice city expert on 2018/09/07 02:45
I’ve found many bugs and glitches in the game and one is in the northern shopping mall I don’t know how it works but now my controls are permanently broke and I can’t do nothing about it. Also the game freezes from time to time please fix that aswell I just don’t understand why y’all can’t fix it but I love the game please read rockstar.
Good console port
by Here's Johnnie on 2016/08/17 02:43
As someone who played GTA:Vice City for hours and hours as a teen, I've gotta admit that everything feels legit for the most part. You lose some functionality being on a tablet but that's expected. Also, not sure if there are any cheat codes like there were on console but I feel like that would make some quests easier where you have "less" control of your character compared to a controller.
Ermahgerd (edit review 4years later)
by JaiKorea on 2018/09/12 18:43
(This is only my experience) I'm kinda disappointed because they said that the size was 887MB and my phone has 1.4GB (NOTICE: 1GB= 1024MB) left but it kept saying that it can't download because it doesn't have enough space. I'm sure it's a great game because I played it whenever I visit a friends house. EDIT: I recall playing this game when I was younger on the play station 2. Was irks great now. Thanks!
