Game crashes by gasttree doutree
GTA 3 keeps crashing after unlocking the Callahan bridge. I tried to restart my phone and offload the app but it keeps freezing and crashing. I got so mad that I downloaded vice city and that needs to be fixed too. Vice city lags a lot and I can’t play missions so can you update both games?
Mad by pigonman
I have seen better.
Freezes every few seconds by nitrojuga
It seems like it can run just fine. It actually is fine for a few minutes of play. However after that, it starts freezing up every few seconds. I think it’s possibly due to how it utilizes RAM. Once it’s full, it starts screwing up. Really wish they’d update it, but doubtful since it hasn’t been updated in 3 years.
Good but by _.norberto69._
It is overall a pretty decent game but once you get to the third island it starts becoming laggy and it ruins the whole game experience and it just keeps getting worst and worst.
Super Laggy! by Art P.
Few minutes into the game and it becomes super laggy it’s not my phone either as it is compatible and there is plenty of space on it.
Critics hate this game by NikeMaker2314
I’ve had this game since 2012 and I play it on my iPad mini 3 with no lag spikes nor glitches.
The perfect iPhone game! by Zookaray
Used to play this& all the later GTA games on PlayStation 2 back when they first came out. Haven’t been able to play them since getting rid of my old consoles though, so seeing it on the iPhone, EXACTLY how it was on a console is just amazing to me. I get to relive one of the greatest games from back in the day
Not iPhone Xs Max compatible by Moooooooeeeee

Freezes by Stubb183628
Freezes rapidly on new iOS devices
PLEASE UPDATE THIS GAME by #respect
This game is fun and amazing but it seriously needs to be updated as soon as possible. It freezes after like 3 minutes into the game. Can’t even do anything at all. Please update this game as soon as possible. I’m on iOS 12 by the way.
Crappy Graphics by Bryce "Lil Speck" Parker
Every time I try to move the car, the game keeps freezing and crashing... please fix this!!!!
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!! by RICO_x37
This game repeatedly crashes at random on my iPhone 8, 10, and now 10S Max. All troubleshooting methods do not work and both Rockstar Games and Apple Support are useless and will not assist in any way and you will not be able to obtain a refund. The game has not been updated for over 3 years and the developer (and Apple) are aware and blatantly choose to allow people to purchase a bad game that will not work on newer iPhone models and possibly older ones as well. The iPhone XS Max which is supposed to have the smoothest gameplay of any smartphone out runs this game very poorly. It is extremely laggy, choppy, and crashes. There is no way to fix it without an update from the developer, which they will not do. Please DO NOT BUY!!
GTA by Prodigyx87
The game is awesome. Except, it crashes and it restarts when shooting a fire arm. This needs to be fixed.
Make the controls the same as San Andreas by Stanley G.
The controls are garbage. The location dots on the map are way too small.
GTA by vermishiscanid
I’ve loved the gta franchises for ever bought n owned em all thought I’d be fun to revisit the games bought em for my tablet. And now I can’t play them for bugs that everyone else is experiencing as well. I want to change my review if just some of these bugs are worked out.
lagging issues by toll66
Love the game bought the bundle pack. Vice city Doesn’t Lag Nor Does San Andreas But For Some Reason This One Plays Very Smooth Then all of sudden The Lagging is a bad and annoying to the point where I don’t want to play the game and this is a great game especially graphic wise and as far as the feel it gives on a mobile device. Once the lagging issue is handle I feel you willl not hear any other complaints.
#Rockstargames by p.lopez072016.@gmail.
The games super choppy and I’m using an iPhone 8+
Such a waste of money. Would like a refund or exchange for another game!
Extreme Stuttering by Coco Shotgun
I’ve been playing this iOS port for a long time now, but after the recent(ish) iOS12 update, the game has become basically unplayable. While playing, the game freezes for a half a second, roughly every 5-10 seconds. This is unbearable. I have played this on both an iPhone SE and now the iPhone X, and the problem is still apparent.
The port is solid, looks and sounds great, and plays extremely well. It is a shame that Rockstar seems to have given up supporting and updating this port, as there are obviously some issues that need fixing.
To clarify, I am giving this a 2-star rating because of my enjoyable past experiences with the game.
Lags by DjR0R
Lags for several seconds at a time almost constantly on my iPhone 7 with iOS 12.0.1
patch by Tomthecat7
I never got this glitch to occur but patch the purple nines glitch if you haven’t.and add in some way to activate cheat codes
Oh love GTA another one by tnewbern38
Love the app and getting used to the new controls but otherwise the game is totally awesome.
I like it by facsgsvggsgsgsgss
I have had this game and it is very good
DO IT by holland_brendan
This game is fun though if you have a history of rage quitting... go play Minecraft
Doesn’t play my music and way too buggy by Deeroxx
Wish this could play my Apple Music but it doesn’t it’s like having the radio off
Huge frequent Lag spikes 5 minutes into it (iPhone 6s user) by Awesome cool sweet game player
This started happening after I downloaded iOS 11 and now it’s worse with iOS 12
Update: it made my phone restart due to a battery problem and it wouldn’t deliver the necessary peak power as it was said in settings
I promised not to play this game at all until a possible update releases but I tried it and I think it would be too much of a coincidence
Please fix this
This is too much of a good game for this to be a thing to ruin it especially for such a long period of time going unnoticed
Not even playable it is so laggy by ebomb2450
Please update ! I only played this a year ago and it was fine. Must not be compatible with newer operating systems I guess.
the app lags...a lot. by DeadFry098
NOTE: THIS IS A REVIEW ON THE PORT, NOTHE GAME ITSELF.
Device: iPhone 6
8 GB used out of 16 GB
ok...can i even give this a proper review? the app freezes so frequently that it’s basically unplayable. the source of the problem seems to be the game tries to load a texture too many times and the phone can’t handle it. it might be because I have older hardware, but if my 6 can’t handle it, how did a 5 handle it?
Not optimized for iPhone xs max by Bohdan199413
Please, optimize the game for iPhone xs max
Game freezes (lags) every 3 seconds
And the game fits only 65-70% of the screen area
Fix that please
XD by Gbaker57
Really decent game!
Love this game but no full screen support for iPhone X by Dylan Aldrich
I love this game but I have an iPhone X and I fill like the full screen isn’t supported and there’s a lot of the screen that isn’t used which makes for it more hard to play. I think it’s great all it needs is a full screen support for the iPhone X series with like an update. Please please please make the app full screen supported on iPhone X. If I didn’t spend money it wouldn’t be a big deal but please do that and the app is perfect in my eyes. Thank you so much.
Please update this game for ios12 by Moonjimin213
I updated my iphone6s to ios12. and I launched this game, but it was so laggy and slow, so I can’t played this game. Please update this game quickly

Ok by Ukraineleo
Rockstar could have done better. Don’t know how to aim, and the camera view angle is pretty bad.
Crashing game by BabyCakes799
My game keeps crashing, will change rating when that’s fixed.
Please update!!! by Gymaddictjp
This app doesn’t perform well at all it’s jittery and doesn’t even work after 2 mins on iOS 12. Please update!!
Refund? by Neunhecnnjo
I accidentally bought this and I don’t really play this game I bought the bundle refund me plz or contact me plz
NOSTALGIA TIME by Killllakiill69
THIS GAME IS VERY GOOD AND BRINGS BACK MEMORIES PLAYIN THIS AND VICE CITY ON THE PlayStation. But there is something in the game that needs to be updated. THE CAMERA FUNCTION. the only way you turn the camera is if you move the screen from the middle. That kind of thing makes it hard when your in a shootout and the camera is the wrong but you can’t do anything about it. I think something cool to add would figure out a way to put the camera function on the right. Instead of having to move it in the middle.
Something Weird Happened by Rooroo69
While I was playing this game at the end of this mission called “Sayanora Salvatore” An El Burro Mission Appeared Called “Turismo” that I beat that mission.. that doesn’t make sense? Is it for a glitch or is it a racing mission just like “Race Tournament” From GTA SA and VC.
Best Gta port on mobile! by Erasmo tamayo
