GTA on iOS?

I was wondering which GTA game on iOS is the best? Should I get the official or should I get Block City Wars or something? I already have Gangstar Rio and Vegas and I like them, but I was wondering how good they were compared to the others.

I much prefer the GTA games as to me they were the original ones which Gangstar etc were based on

Vice City is an absolute classic, i would go for that first. Its a brilliant game and one people will still be talking about in 20 years time

San Andreas hands down. The best of the 3D era of gta (before HD such as gta 4 and 5)
Block city wars has bugs to be fixed like crashing, map not loading up all the way, and it's hard to accumulate coins.

You should definitely go straight for the GTA games. They are the original and it's done at a quality which hasn't been replicated on iOS

For playing them, go Vice City first. Enjoy the hell out of that game, before moving onto San Andreas and seeing how much they managed to improve the experience

if you can get to play GTA on PC that's even better than playing on iOS, I guarantee it

GTA:SA is the best but beware, the framerate on A7 devices is not great, also (imo) touch screen controls really don't work for GTA games.

Last iOS game I bought: 6/1/15

Close call between Vice and San Andreas for me.

Personally I'd start at the first, they're all good.

I have gta San and gangstar vegas.
Well the best one is gta sa
The map is bigger, better missions and variety.
The AI are more realistic.
The map Is almost 4 times bigger than gangstar's.
No fremium mechanic like gangstars
Car costumization
Better story
Better simulator
Gangstar vegas is just a fraction of gta potential.

Speaking of control, the gta controls are not great but not as bad as gangstar vegas. In addition it offer icloud back up.
How ever if you are looking for better graphic gangstar win.
