Grand Theft Auto 3 for iPhone and iPad

Chris Holt | Feb. 22, 2012
Rockstar Games didn’t necessarily invent the sandbox genre, but the developer most certainly redefined it with the controversial and innovative Grand Theft Auto. To mark the 10th anniversary of its release, Rockstar unleashed Grand Theft Auto 3 on the iPhone and iPad, and the results are impressive.

But aiming and firing—never a strong suit of the original PS2 version of the game—is a real challenge on the iPad. It’s still possible to do, but you’re about as likely to hit random pedestrians as your intended target. There are some occasional crash bugs as well, but you can restart at the beginning without losing your save.

Grand Theft Auto 3 for the iOS isn’t a perfect port, even with its control shortcomings. But it’s still a fun ride.
