Gangstar Rio -> $0.99

Edit, it is really 99 cents. Bonehead of the Year Award goes to Connector!

Anyway, highly recommended!

Aha, yeah you're signed in from the NZ store. Must have been to get RR3. Anyway, it's definitely worth the full price anyway.

So, if I'm on the fence, what would you guys say? Like gameplay x/5, graphics x/5, world x/5, profanity x/5 (not that I care, just curious) and app size. Thanks!

Graphics should be nice on your iPad Mini. Put it this way, if Grand Theft Auto is Goodfellas, then Gangstar is like a cheap, sleazy B Movie that goes straight to DVD. It's vulgar and silly but loads of fun. The city is cool and the controls are good. There's loads to see and do and the city is well done. I love it, and I'm a huge GTA fan.

Favourite games: Shadowgun, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Asphalt 7, Dead Space, The Dark Knight Rises, N.O.V.A. 3, Deus Ex: The Fall, Call Of Duty: Strike Team, Gangstar, Bejeweled, Fairway Solitaire.

Haven't played it much since it got put in the save for a rainy day cause of disk space. But I was really impressed by the graphics and cutscenes on my new ipad. Thought it looked a lot nicer than GTA3, so I was kind of surprised.

Profanity is really high, I think more than GTA3, but I didn't play far, but it really has a movie atmosphere unlike GTA3, so maybe that is why I thought this game is more vulgar. Not for kids though, even though, I *think* I bought it off of Ninjackid's recommendations.

App size, ahh hold on gotta go get my ipad...

Back 1.7 gb, so very big.

Highly recommended, especially for a buck.

I played the first Gangstar HD version (before they began making the series universal); it was made free for a day or two when the first ipad was released. The controls were atrocious.

This is what, the 3rd Gangstar game? Did Gameloft inprove the controls (especially driving, IIRC) between the first Gangstar and this one?
