App description: The acclaimed Gangstar series is back on iPhone and iPad to offer you a whole new place to have criminally good fun!
Youll never experience a better way to discover Rio de Janeiro!
For the first time ever in a sandbox game, explore the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Discover 5 different neighborhoods including the favelas, business district, beaches and jungle.
Also, for the first time in the Gangstar series, explore indoor environments fully realized in 3D.
Over 60 varied missions to complete, plus dozens of random events to give you hours of fun.
Kill corrupt politicians, protect witnesses, deliver special packages, steal cars and find out who tried to kill you and leave you for dead.
Access a wide range of weapons, such as handguns, rifles, bazookas and grenades, plus a new local specialty: the explosive Football.
Also, drive dozens of vehicles including planes, helicopters and a tank, and of course, you can rob, purchase and collect dozens of cars or motorbikes.
You can now customize your character. Unlock numerous shirts, pants, hats, glasses and more, that you can collect and use to customize your character.
The realism has been pushed even further thanks to various radio channels broadcasting hip hop, electro and funk music with several licensed tracks:
- World Town - M.I.A.
- Office Boy - Bonde do Role
- Lingua de Tamanduá - MV Bill

I heard it was about the same size map. Now with some buildings you can enter. Also able to fly planes and change your clothes. I hope you can do a lot with those new things. Not just use one plane in a mission and that's it or something. Hopefully there'll be different planes and what not. lol

MC2 was already a decent looking game. GS:MV was, to put it charitable, cartoonish. I would say that, from what we saw on the video, GSR's leap is actually bigger.

Damn people who don't know how to create game threads! They should just check out the syntax for proper app info display by quoting any random thread openers.

MC3 isn't an open world game. This is.

Must. Have. Gotta Try

This is Gameloft's last chance to "get it right" with a 3D sandbox game, before the actual Boss playa GTA hits next month, and everyone forgets about our lovely stand-in, the Gangstar series.

I don't know man, the game seems to look pretty similar.
Yes the textures will be lower quality, and the world is probably sparser than MC3, but there is nothing GL can do about that. Totally different type of game with different needs for the limited mobile memory.

I just pray that the draw distance has been greatly improved over the last two iterations. There was nothing like speeding in the cars with the cops chasing you down and hitting smack into a building popping out of thin air.

The Sanuku video is out now if anyone was waiting for it. Maybe he posted it on the first page. It looks pretty good.
