The huge Playstation 2 hit from Rockstar Games, GTA San Andreas is out and fully optimised and enhanced for Apples touch screen devices. This game is a must have and if you’ve never played it before we seriously recommend giving it a try and for only £4.99 on iOS ($6.99 stateside) it’s well worth investing in as it promises over 70 hours of game play taking place across the fictional cities of Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas. The sheer size of these locations (and everything in between) means you can spend a lot of the time just looking and driving around which greatly adds to the longevity of the game.
GTA San Andreas comes with re-mastered, high-resolution graphics including lighting enhancements, an enriched colour palette and improved character models along cloud based save points which means that you can play when your commuting on your iPhone and carry on playing via your iPad when at home which is a nice touch, although you will need to be registered with the Rockstar Social Club to be able to do this.
It also comes with game controller compatibility with all Made-for-iOS controllers.
GTA San Andreas is huge and weighs in at just over 1.6GB so will take up a bit of space and it will only work on iPhone 4s and above, iPod touch 5th generation and above and iPad 2 and above. There was an update on the 6th January 2014 which fixed a few minor bugs so is now completely up to date.
The game is also available on Android with Kindle HD and Windows Phone devices to follow in the next few weeks.
