GTA: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition Now Available for iOS & Android

11 posts in this topic

IPB ImageUPDATE: The Android version of Vice City is currently taking a massive hit with 1-star ratings coming thick and fast from unrelenting and annoyed Android users. Due to Google Play's ridiculously low filesize limit on apps, developers who wish to put out large games are forced to make users download "expansion" files upon first launching the app. It is this secondary download which is failing for what appears to be almost everyone who has installed the game, with "XAPK validation failed" messages. Hopefully Rockstar and developer War Drum Studios will be able to get a quick update out to fix this issue. Meanwhile, iOS users are enjoying a flawless experience.

UPDATE 2: The Android version has now been removed from Google Play for the time being...

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition is now available to download on the iOS App Store and Google Play worldwide, or will be very shortly if it is not yet 6th December in your part of the world. Here's a few details about the game from the iOS App Store:

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

• Custom controls with a fully customizable layout

• iCloud save game support

• Massive campaign with countless hours of gameplay

Lulz they did change the ammo count and radio station indicators. 'Tis most likely due to the problems that I pointed out on the previews. The road textures look a tad better, too.

Somehow? Any dummy can see they look better. The vehicles at least don't have those burn-like textures...

Anyway unless it comes with a free tablet I think I'll stick to the Steam version...

"Somehow" as in it's quite amazing how the game looks better on a phone than it does on a computer... that's just weird.

The Android version is corrupted at the moment anyway so you'll have to stick with Steam. Check out all the 1-star ratings it's getting :/

It's not weird. GTA VC came out 10 years ago. The real test will be with GTA San Andreas though.

Wonder if they'll make anniversary editions for LCS and VCS as well...

The character shadows are a plus, too. Shame that the Android port got scathing reviews upon release.

Android version can be downloaded now if you've already purchased before the removal of this game from Google Play Store.

It has an major bug, I'm playing it on HTC EVO 3D it's working real smooth but when I drive any vehicle, after some seconds the game got hanged and also my phone. Just have to pull off the battery. The game doesn't hangs when you walk/run Tommy. Just needed to know if anyone has the same issue
