Una vez más, Liberty City vuelve a la actualidad con la reedición de todo un clásico de los sandbox; Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary llega a dispositivos iOS y Android con todo su potencial intacto.

For most games in the App Store, a $4.99 price point would seem a bit high. However, for a game of this caliber and influence, the only crime would be depriving yourself of a milestone in portable gaming. This is a trip back into Liberty City that shouldn’t be missed.

A fitting anniversary gift for a blockbuster franchise. Despite the odds, this is a largely successful port of an iconic game, and it's still massive amounts of fun to evade police, pull off jumps and complete missions.

Picking up GTA3 seems like a no-brainer, especially at the launch price of $4.99. Regardless of the less than ideal control scheme, you'll get five dollars worth of entertainment out of this game, even if all you do is drive around Liberty City listening to the fantastic in-game radio stations. (My favorite is the talk station.) As you become more accustomed with the splattering of virtual buttons all over the screen, you'll find hours upon hours of content to plow through. Having played GTA3 to completion many times in the past, I'm incredibly happy to be able to take it anywhere with me on my phone of all things.

While the controls and visual/graphics engine are feeling a bit long in the tooth, we’d be hard pressed to find anything for mobile devices that is as deeply compelling and console-like as Grand Theft Auto 3: Tenth Anniversary Edition for any price.

Jeux Vidéo Magazine
À force de scandales, de scènes chocs mais aussi grâce à un scénario captivant construit autour de personnages charismatiques et d'une bande-son inoubliable, GTA III reste la référence du jeu d'aventure "bac à sable" ultraviolent. Et ce en dépit d'une jouabilité parfois irritante.

In other words, Grand Theft Auto 3 is one of the App Store's best titles, and we strongly suggest downloading it immediately.

Men det är varvat med goda portioner njutning. Njutning av att återigen sätta igång uppdraget The Exchange. Njutning av att stjäla en illröd sportbil av en rik spoling och sedan demolera den i ett rekordlångt trickhopp. Njutning av den stilbildande anarkin. Sammanfattningsvis är Grand Theft Auto III dock en underhållande och läckert illustrerad historiebok - utan tvekan. Men ställ in dig på att bläddra i den med boxhandskar.

Inattaquable sur l'essentiel qui est toujours bel et bien là dans ce portage, le jeu est par contre moins convaincant sur la forme. Car un produit intégralement pensé pour la manette de la PS2 il y a dix ans est forcément beaucoup moins maniable à l'écran tactile, malgré les efforts et les idées des développeurs pour ruser. Les boutons virtuels à l'écran peuvent être déplacés, on peut même changer leur taille, mais rien à faire : après quelques fusillades et courses-poursuites, on vendrait père et mère pour retrouver une bonne vieille manette et la précision qui l'accompagne. La gestion de la caméra et la visée sont donc assez problématiques sur tablettes, et encore plus sur les téléphones avec de petits écrans. Dernier point et pas des moindres, le jeu réclame un appareil récent (Galaxy S2 / iPhone 4S) pour tourner correctement. Sur iPad 1 par exemple, il faudra s'attendre à des concessions sur la fluidité.
