Gangstar Rio vs. 9mm

I joined the ios community last year, so there were many titles I missed. I've found gangstar rio( I already have vegas) and 9mm. I wanted to know if either one crashes on ios 7, and also which one is more worth the purchase- 6.99.

Well 9mm doesn't support 4" display.

And i played Gangstar rio before and i really didn't like it. But i liked Gangstar Rio

I suggest getting GTA Games instead.

Do you have 4" device?

If yes get Rio

Neither. If you have Gangstar Vegas, then getting Rio is pointless. 9mm is outdated. If you want to spend $6.99 on a Gameloft title, then here are some suggestions instead of one of those two:

Modern Combat 4
N.O.V.A. 3
The Amazing Spider-Man
The Dark Knight Rises
Wild Blood

Or you can always wait for TASM 2.

I have the dark knight rises and modern combat 4. I've heard bad things about the other games, and I'll check out wild blood. But my first question still stands.

Well Gangstar is like GTA obviously with a huge open world and tons of missions.

9mm is much smaller but i really enjoyed that and played it from start to finish. Gangstar i havent bothered with as i just feel its a poor IAP clone of GTA. For me GTA is the best so i stick to their games

Gangster rio was not good at all. And 9mm was too short. If you must get a gameloft game try Backstab.

If i were to really choose one, i'd go for 9mm. It's a more Max Payne experience, even though there's Max Payne for iOS.

Gangstar Rio is ok, but the existence of Gangstar Vegas made Rio look like another flappy clone.

As with the others, if you want a Gameloft game, there are better choices, but just out of those 2, i'd go for 9mm.
