Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary Now Available On iOS

The game that many hail as the best in the Grand Theft Auto franchise is now available on iOS. Rockstar announced today that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary is now available for purchase in the App Store for iOS devices. It costs $4.99, and is a “universal” app, compatible with iPhone 4, 4S, and 5, all iPad models, iPad Mini and iPod Touch 4th & 5th Gen.

As we reported earlier, the game is an enhanced version of the award-winning original game, optimized for mobile and tablet devices with several new mobile-specific features including customizable controls, a new camera control scheme and interface, upgraded textures, greater resolutions and increased draw distance… in all, Rockstar improved upon an already solid experience.

The original Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was originally released in October 2002 for the PlayStation 2, just one year after Grand Theft Auto III. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City expanded upon the open-world gameplay of GTA III, combined with nostalgia for the 1980s and taking the franchise from “popular” to “household name.”

Android phone and tablet users may have to wait a while, though: a file validation error seems to be stopping people from downloading it, leading to some negative scores in the Google Play Store.
