  • Rockstar pulled out over the past half year two classics on Android, Max Payne 1 and GTA III, both release a bit over 10 years ago and both games that wrote history. GTA III is available in a special 10 year anniversary edition and it goes for $4.99. This is a 2001 game, a 3D open world action title, that takes place in Liberty City, a town inspired by New York.

    You control Claude, a man who has just dodged prison and now he’s doing errands for the mob. You can board any car you want, assault people on the street and harass anyone, since that’s the nature of the game. The controls are pretty clunky and uncomfortable and they involve a joystick on the left side of the screen for moving around and a swipe in the middle of the screen to rotate the camera. There’s also a run button, punch/shoot button and jump button. You change weapon by swiping over in the top right corner and weapons include a baseball bat, gun, machine gun, shotgun or simply your fists.

    Claude can get arrested, get shot, get run over by cars or get trapped inside an exploding car. Some of these game endings will have you retrying a mission, going back to the hospital or to the jail, with a sum deducted from your money. You get money for each accomplished mission for your mob boss, stuff like escorting his girl, getting him a gun, delivering a package, killing an enemy and more. There’s total freedom, so you can run around town in a rampage and shoot everyone, but your star rating with the police, that shows your wanted level will increase.

    It’s a pretty good and fun game, but the controls, especially those in car when driving kill the fun. This game is worth a 6-7 out of 10.
