This game is extremely wonderful for gamers that are craving a little of nostalgia.
A few players have battled with a few technical difficulties which can impair gameplay such as slowing down speedboats and the dodo waterplane.
To address these difficulties, set your devices ‘motion smoothness’ from adaptive to standard.
This will alter your device from 120hz to 60 hz.
This will address the aforementioned issues as this game wasn’t supposed to be ran at a higher level.
Done with it.
I spent 38 hrs on this game and must appreciate Rockstar for releasing these three classics on Android.
So much nostalgia!
The radio stations!
Yes, the shooting auto-aim is a bit terrible but it’s not gameplay-affecting.
It’s not that Vice City is combat-intensive.
You become used to it.
I had a draw-distance difficulty which I also had to live it.
Very nicely suited for phone otherwise.
Loved it and now onto: San Andreas!
Great game, amazing memories.
Unfortunately, when I’m looking at the map and push one of the buttons on the controller,my character ends up falling out of the sky, into the sea!??.. even in a vehicle.
Really unusual , tried new controller, still the same…
That stated a must game to have..
This game is great!
The tale, The atmosphere, The gunplay, the vehicles, assets, its excellent!
just like the mobile gta 3, it has the option where you can switch off your phone, turn it back on, tap resume, and your’re back in buisness, excellent for playing on the move.
I recomend this game anyday over GTA 3 mobile, however both are fantastic.
Overall the game is a 10/10, and it works nicely on android 11, 5$ honestly feels a little low for the qaulity of this excellent game
Vehicles pulling to the right/left?
Turn off the accelerometer in the games settings.
Boats too slow?
Go into your device settings and adjust display to 60hz or Motion Smoothness to Standard (be careful to Apply) (be sure to Apply).
Want to change the radio station?
Get a bluetooth controller and click the up arrow!
Want to enter cheats?
Get a tablet with an external keyboard like the Tab S7.
Dropping a star cuz several of these items were hard to find out.
If your game is running twice as quickly as it should, you likely have a phone with a refresh rate higher than 60.
Kind of awesome
R* addressed this issue for GTA3, but hasn’t repaired Vice City.
Anyway, for the time being you may remedy the issue by adjusting your screen refresh rate to 60.
For Galaxy S20 users go to: settings/display/motion smoothness.
Change the specified setting to standard.
Hope this helps.
I was loving this game and had had no troubles while playing.
Now now loading my game save causes it to immediately crash.
New games are x1000 speed and absolutely unplayable as well.
I will alter my review if the issue is ever resolved.
Edit: it took close to two months, but the game is finally operating again.
Revising my review up, because I like the game and the port is decent.
Not giving 5 ratings, since a month and a half to fix a paid for app that is utterly broken is bad.
Still the finest game ever since it used to be published on pc and ps2.
Still a lot of people can play the game.
The visuals are significantly better.
(Edit 11 July 2022)
Game doesn’t load anymore.
I can try to load a certain level but it refuses to buffer.
Super bummed as I adore this game 😭
(Edit 12 September 2022)
Game is totally functional now.
It must of been one of those things.
All is good! 🙂
I see a lot of comments regarding issues in this game.
Obviously they are either younger gamers who are used to high visual games or not used to the earlier GTAs.
Even when this game came out on ps2 a lot of the difficulties they are having on the mobile existed on the disk game.
It is part of the original design.
I get it’s been 10+ years.
Yes there may be upgrades, but then it wouldn’t be the same game.
This is still the same amazing game I played when I was a little kid and adolescent.
