App description: Welcome back to Vice City. Welcome back to the 1980s.

From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile. Vice City, a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, was one of the most varied, complete and alive digital cities ever created. Combining open-world gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.

+1. I may have to DL, along with MC4, even though I don't really play fps games :-/

Would still like feedback on the general difficulty of the game tho.

How does it work on iPhone 4? Playable (frame rate wise)? Better or worse than GTA III?

Waiting for:
Minigore 2: Zombies, Real Racing 3, GTA: Vice City, Touchgrind 2, Badland, Audiosurf...

Very excited for tonight. Now we just need Baldur's Gate to...magically... come out this week, and it will be the best iOS game/app release week ever (if you also include MC4, improved Gmail, Youtube for iPad, iWork apps with Office compatibility that doesn't suck...)

I played Vice City a lot in college, especially my second year, when it came out for the Xbox. But I never played the missions, as Xbox magazine had CD with a save game file that took you to the end. So my friends and I just played around rampaging everywhere, rather than playing the missions. So Vice City will be both new and old for me. GTA III was the same way, though I did play the missions until the second island was unlocked. So with these games coming out for my iPad, at least with GTA III so far, I am actually playing the missions...

As far as file size goes, yeah, it is definitely clear that San Andreas may have some issues with staying under the 2 GB cap... here's hoping that Apple will raise that limit to 4GB in the next couple of years (along with coming out with 128 GB devices...)

OK, this is just insane...this is actually available in Lebanon. That's a first as the other 2 GTA games aren't. Well, easy decision...I'll buy this when my bandwidth goes free for the night.
