I tend to do the exact same thing when referring to it.

But anyway, the auto aim doesn't bother me too much as in comparison to pc, touch just isn't as precise.

What really interests me is if the car mods will work same as in last one on iOS.
I have a some ready to rock and install (hopefully iexplorer will work again this time).
I'm very curious to see if the Aston one 77 mod that I have will texture right.

And, of course, the game was awesome anyway, so nostalgia alley (in the tenies, playing a noughties game set in the eighties), that's gotta a record of some kind) here we go again.

Yeah it does confuse me too I didn't realise this was IV because the other game is IV

I'm pretty sure they called IV that because its in the same city as III. V is San Andreas though so that's weird since it should've been Vice City.

The auto target is a pain in gta 3, i was able to complete it but there was definatly some frustrating bits. Didnt vice city have free aim, been so long since i played it. Cant remember.
well u would be wrong...the way mobile tech is moving ..studies show in less then 2 years mobile devices such as phones and tablets will catch up or surpass ps3 and xbox 360..so its very easily possible

Maybe when iPhone 7 comes out depends on the processor

We already got into this a while ago...the iPhone 5, iPads 3&4 are as or more powerful than the PS Vita, which is often said to be nearly as powerful as the PS3. Especially in the case of the 4th gen iPad (which has a 2x more powerful gpu) and iPhone 5 (no insane resolution) a port is feasible on the spec side of things. But this really has nothing to do with Vice City...

It might be more powerful but if developers don't see how far it can go you won't see 4 for awhile.
