With their 10 year anniversary, RockStar games ( one of my personal favorite game manufacturers ) decided to release Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto Vice City for the Android platform. Take heed, however, as you will require a pretty darn strong Android device to play either of them. The graphics haven’t been tweaked down and the games look just as good as they did on the PC. They are basically the games I played as a child that helped me develop into the outstanding psychopath that I am today ( kidding, of course ). All jokes left aside, these games did receive a whole lot of bad feedback from people that claimed they were too violent for children. However, those people are utter morons as they don’t even know the meaning of an ESRB rating, or shall I say, an age restriction. Why anyone’d think that this game is appropriate for children is beyond me. You wouldn’t take a 5 year old to see a porno flick, so why’d you take them too see something of extreme violence and gore is beyond all notion of rational thought. This game has neither of both those things I just mentioned ( it is a bit violent, but not like, take for instance, the Saw movies ).
This game, along with others of its genre are very dear to me. I personally enjoy the sandbox games the most. This game, in case you’ve never really played a Grand Theft Auto game, combines humorous lines which are very well spoken by some grade A voice acting with elements of both shooters and racing genres. The game is great for such a low value.
In order to make it somewhat easier for you, I will hereby post a list of the phones and tablets that this game should run great on: Galaxy Nexus, HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Droid Bionic, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, Samsung Galaxy S2, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, T-Mobile G2x, Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Medion Lifetab, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive.
A word of warning however. While for the PC the graphics of this game may not seem like much, for the average Android device those graphics are pretty darn good ( especially since this is an openworld Sandbox game ). Therefore, this game will take up quite a lot of space. I suggest having more than 1 GB of free space if you plan on downloading this awesome game. I’m proud to say that I’ve played the GTA games from start to finish ( all of them ). The price of this game may not be as cheap as your run of the mill average game, but in the end it’s worth every coin.

Since this is a Rockstar game, and Rockstar is an international company, this game is available in quite a few different languages. As far as memory serves, all of the Grand Theft Auto games were like that. Those languages are: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese.
Featuring some stellar voice acting, a darkly comic storyline, a really stunning soundtrack and some revolutionary open-world gameplay. This game has defined ( on the PC as well ) the open world genre for generations. Picture this, whenever you referred to a game, you always tend to compare it like this “It’s like a GTA, but only…”. You’ve enjoyed them all on the PC, why not give it a try on Android as well?
