Gangstar: Miami Vindication By Gameloft [NZ]



Enjoy the most immersive full-3D crime simulation ever on Mac! Gangstar: Miami Vindication has a new, unique feel that delivers a deep storyline of revenge: plunge into Miami gang life and live a fast-paced adventure to liberate your little brother who has been kidnapped by the Armada gang for unknown reasons…

“With its huge city, impressive voice acting, and competent controls, Miami Vindication is a big win for Gameloft” (148apps.com)
“An incredibly ambitious game” (SlideToPlay.com)

- A long lifespan, with more than 75 varied missions: infiltrate gangs, snipe enemies, escort witnesses, chase cars and survive the jungle of Miami.
- An amazing reconstruction of an entire sprawling metropolis with a massive open-ended environment that recreates Miami, including Downtown, Miami Beach, The Harbor, Miami Bay, and The Swamps.
- Beware of the Miami PD! Thanks to the new improved AI, the cops will react intelligently and call for FBI reinforcements if needed.

- New amazing vehicles to drive, from regular cars & motorcycles to boats, jet skis and even a helicopter!
- Storyline missions will take you inside each of these vehicles as you race, chase and take on time trials.
- Defeat rival gang members by using a new arsenal of weapons including grenades, flame throwers and Molotov cocktails. See just how it feels to blow out Miami!

- A deep storyline of revenge: the scenario was jointly written with a scriptwriter from the popular TV show, “The Wire” and is delivered by countless breathtaking, voice acted cutscenes.
- A true feeling of freedom: complete missions at your own pace and do absolutely anything you want, by day or by night.

The launch trailer is below:


It looks pretty visually painful for a modern computer game. It looks like they may have improved a few shaders mainly on the water, used slightly higher resolution textures, and changed the level of detail gradient so that even background objects are "full" quality rather than scaled lower. Still the polygon count of the models doesn't seem to have been improved, the textures still look low resolution, and vehicle and pedestrian pop-in draw distance still look very apparent. Given multiple full 3D GTA games are available on the Mac App Store, Gangstar will be a tougher sell than on the iOS App Store.
