Old-school GTA gets new school Android treatment
Grand Theft Auto III Review
by on February 8, 2012
For many, GTA III is the ultimate Grand Theft Auto experience. When it was first released back in 2002, it showed just how good sandbox games could be – couple this with decent gameplay and more violence than you can shake a stick at and what you have is a fantastic game.
The transition from the bigscreen to the small for GTA III is a decent one – you will be pleased to know that the game has lost little of its charm. The fact that we can play this type of game on our smartphones – and tablets – is impressive in itself but that the game suffers from no lag at all and still looks good a decade later brings a massive smile to our collective faces.
Our only problem with the game is the fiddly on-screen controls. We don’t know if this is because we have fingers like sausages but the new control system doesn’t sit well with the speed of the cars and we did find ourself hitting into things when on foot. Not that this detracts from the gameplay too much but it is something to be wary of.
A great blast from the past, GTA III makes a faithful and brilliant transition to the small-ish screen.
