I went into my safehouse to save my game and my character walks inside, but it doesn’t proceed to the saving screen. It just kinda shows the entrance to the safehouse and gets stuck there. I exit and refresh the app, and what happens? My character is now STUCK IN THE SAFEHOUSE, and I can’t get back out! I tried loading my last save file and re-saving, but the same thing happens again. Please fix this
Glitches Galore by kjp2367
Made it to the second island then was sent on a mission where I need to race to a few different pay phones. You can hear the 2nd one ringing, but it’s not there. Waste of time and money.
Good Game, needs fixes though by Mister Solitude
I personally love this game, and I really like how it’s remastered with better graphics and new features, but there are some glitches with the vehicles like they keep moving to the left or right and the second island is really glitchy. Everything else is okay though, and I like it!
Pretty nice port of a revolutionary game by kickflip123
My only complaints are that once I got to the third island, my game would constantly freeze for a few seconds, and it ruined my immersion a lot. It got worse the longer you played the game. I’m currently on an iPad Air 2 running the latest iOS as of writing this review. There’s also a few texture bugs where sometimes things would turn into weird gray squares, but they're nothing game breaking. Gun controls could be better as well, but they’re enjoyable for the most part. The game gets a bit repetitive the more you play it too. But besides all that, it’s a solid and fun game. Interesting story and characters, nice soundtrack (although there’s only 4-5 songs per station), decent graphics for a mobile game, fun gameplay, and plenty of things to do besides missions. Be warned, though. The game has definitely showed it’s age. Overall a solid purchase and I’m happy. I just finished the main story and got everything I wanted to do done. Go ahead and buy it! I think it’s worth it.
Reviewing grand theft auto by Big papo38
Not much to say but that this one is just about the same as the ps3 version great game all together there’s too many words to say but I’ll just say it with one outstanding
Great by Jimmy rayne
The game is as good as I remember it from back in the day I’m hoping that eventually you guys will bring the rest of the gta series to iOS
Won’t start by Pcarbs
I’m running 11.2.2 and the game won’t open anymore. I played it a couple of days ago with no problems at all. Now it goes through the loading screen when I hit “Resume,” but crashes and closes the app when the progress bar hits 100%. I’ve tried closing and reopening the game and a hard reset of the phone - neither worked.
When the game works this is easily a 5 Star game...but as of now it’s worthless. Hopefully it’s a simple big that can be fixed with an update.
Crashes by BSProductions
I love all the GTA games but it keeps crashing. I tried deleting and reinstalling stalling the and the problem remained. So Until they fix the bug 🐜 m going to delete the app off my iPhone. Will it was fun while it lasted 😔😔👎
Great by Sizzle♨

Great by Gaunt233
Amazing!!! by Robertojperez
This game apart of be pretty nice graphics has a pretty perfect gameplay. I never played this game before, is my first time playing but however has pretty great controls, gameplay and pretty great graphics...
It’s great classic by Larose435
I’ve played this ever since I was a kid! Growing up, I was super stoked to drive and enjoy the experience loved all the driving games, I couldn’t even “wait!” To drive when I young that’s all I ever wanted to do!. That was when I was 13 now I’m 26 and now that I’m on the road?, people/pedestrians on the rockstar games and in real life! Still drive the same! They SUCK🤐
Awesome by Blackneptune09
My childhood coming back reminds me why I started to play this game overall I can play this for hours and not get bored
Gta iii by VitalyDimitrov
The only thing that i dont like is the cars how they drive
Welcome To Liberty City by poopsy duffus
It was not as hard as people said it was, but it was still challenging enough without ruining the experience of it. gta 3 is a great game with a great story reminiscent of Mel Gibson’s payback, great voice acting, great soundtrack, and plenty of bloody action and intense mob hits. if you enjoyed payback or The Godfather, or both, you’ll enjoy this one too.
W 👏👏🎉🎊 by Tyclone_Exofighter
The small storage consumption, the functionality, the hours of content, no micro transactions, the easy controls! It seems like salvation to me, a game with such traits! Rockstar games and Rockstar North, you guys have taken a great W on this one. 😄
Gta 3 by Playstationguy200
Beautiful to remaster this on phones
I still have my ps2 copy which is a masterpiece along with the other titles
Needs iPhone X update by Breezer2123
Great game but needs to be updated for iPhone X
Gta 3 by Grindboyzz
One of the best gta ever I swear I grew up on this thanks for the app
GTA series for iPhone a must-have. by Simple_American
I see the GTA series for the iPhone Plus as a must have. It’s a great price, classic game, great game, on the palm of your hands. The downside is the well-known touchscreen limitations of the gunplay control scheme, which isn’t Rockstar’s or any game developer company’s fault, but hopefully in time the games can get updates and improvements. Other Grand Theft Auto-like games on mobile devices, such as Gangstar Vegas and Gangstar New Orleans, have similar, but better and improved auto-aim control scheme than the GTA series on mobile devices. I hope Rockstar can learn a little bit about those two games and update their gunplay controls, although unfortunately, Rockstar has already abandoned its GTA series on mobile devices (they’re not going to get updates). It’s still a great buy, I recommend them.
Glitches are unacceptable. by Louis Spontane
I downloaded this game yesterday. I like this game but I’m currently trapped in the safehouse after trying to go save. I walked inside, the door closed behind me, but it didn’t open the “save game” page. I closed the app and reopened it, it loaded the game again and luckily my progress hasn’t been lost. Too bad I’m still stuck inside the safehouse!! Had I killed those bums under the bridge and gotten some molotov cocktails I could at least kill myself and wind up back at the hospital, but nope, I’m stuck until I come up with another plan. Maybe I’ll refresh my phone and hope for the best.... otherwise I WASTED $12 on a bundle of crap. I sure am a sucker!
So, here’s an update, five minutes later: I did a soft refresh on my iPhone, opened the game again and good news! Just kidding it didn’t right itself. Bad enough that somehow the sound stopped working before (which I forgot to include above) but now I can’t even progress any further. Unless I bite the bullet and start a new game. You decide if you want to waste three hours progressing through a game only to find you can’t even continue in it because you get stuck inside the safehouse! Guess I should have read the reviews... this apparently has not been fixed for over a year (at least).
... To think a game that’s over a decade old and only takes up under a GB of space should function properly for as much as a couple coffee’s worth of money, in today’s world? You might as well just buy the coffee and reminisce about the good old days... save yourself the trouble. I wish I could get my money back... (hint hint) Just fix the game please!
Good game by Josegamez10
No complaints by L0UDM0UTH
Only thing I wish we could tap enemies to aim like in VC and SA ports.
Very fun by Jcmacremix
Love it played on ps2 and it is fun beat once now twice But it’s fun I have it But much easier
I love it but... by UtahJazzKanoa
Love the game but when I play the game the voices of the people crackle so it makes it hard to hear. Rockstar can you please please make it so you fix this and make the voices a little less like that.
Got boring... by PUFFERWARS333
I love the GTA games, but this one kinda bores me. I played it for an hour or so and figured, there wasn’t much to do. You could do missions but otherwise the only other thing to do is run around killing people or driving cars that destroy themselves if you run into anything. I honestly wouldn’t recommend this game. Get GTA San Andreas if you want a more fun experience
Autosave problem by yuzip
Horrible experience, after half of the game autosave stoped working and game crashes if you trying to load it, now all progress is lost because last manual save was in the beginning of the game.
Don’t buy for iPhone X by Wuisawesome
This game is good but was abandoned by rockstar. It hasn’t been updated for the iPhone X and at this point doesn’t seem like it ever will be
Won’t work by Luke64ledbetter
I tried to get a hold of Apple and get a refund and they wouldn’t give it to me this app was glitch and not working for me and they wouldn’t let me get a re fund
Ok by Bæd
Wish it had more things in the game
Awesome! by R&C88
It's the best, it reminds me of my childhood in the 2000s
Rockstar Rocks! by Burnot65
It’s THE BEST game ever
Just a great classic by ImmunePanda
This game's great has what it did on the ps2 and even looks a bit better than it. The controls are a bit hard to use but you get used to it.
Great port by Monkeyslk
Never played gta 3 as it was before my time. Happy I get to play it now
Controls need an update by Alex12165849147
This controls in this game are incredibly difficult to use when walking, running, and shooting.
It’s nearly impossible to choose a target and the character could be shooting at any direction, so while you want to shoot in front of you, he’s shooting somewhere off screen and you can’t turn and shoot where ou want in time. Frequently you’ll end up getting shot in the face until he does and be unable to do anything because you can’t choose who to shoot at.
It’s so frustrating and gets to the point where I’ll just quit playing for a while and then come back hoping I can just tough it out because the game is really fun, it’s just things like this that ruin it.
Here’s one out of five stars in hoping it gets the game creator’s attention and maybe they’ll make a fix for this.
This game is pretty cool BUT !!! by rsh132
This game is one of my favorite games besides nobleman which is another game but i think you need to add to this game like new characters and weapons and new features new cars and a multiplayer mode and maybe let the players be a cop and they can arrest people or something like that love this game hope you improve it!!!!
Can I please get a refund by GameRevuver
Can I lease get a refund because I thought the graphics of this game is not good at all and so please kindly can I get a refund
👌🏽 by dabdaddy96

Haven't experienced any issues yet... by Dem12644
So far so good, I haven't had any issues with the cars turning by themselves like I've had with the vice city and San Andreas app.
Excellent! by Sheezey
What a great game to have on the iPad! It is fun to go back through all of the old missions. Works very well with my steel series controller.
God awful controls/camera by Zombi3hunter13
I really want to like this game but the controls and the camera are so sh***y it makes the game unplayable for me
Good but freezes occasionally by realjaimediaz
It tends to freeze from time to time when I go in the safe house in liberty city
😍😍😍😍😍😍 by JohnCfSan DiFrangeles
Force close if I did not white this by Longhorn64
There is this thing on the app we’re if you don’t rate it it will not let you go on and it force closes I’m not happy
Great Game but laggy by speedygt40
Ever since I’ve upgraded to the iPhone 7 this game became laggy. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling but didn’t change. I think they need to update this game to make it more compatible. Does the same thing with GTA Vice City.
