Is the PC version of Vice City the same as the mobile version, aside from the controls, modding ability etc.. I mean the game itself.


I just want to know if I can post about the mobile Vice City version on this forum.

It is nearly identical.... They changed a few things (like lowering the cost of certain properties) and a few other minor things... But is the same otherwise... I completed the story on my Galaxy S3 last year... But can't bring myself to go for 100%...a little tedious with mobile controls.

The storyline is the same. The only difference is in graphics. So yes, you can talk about this game if you play the mobile version :).

The mission "Shakedown" is different on the mobile version. You don't need to break all the windows, just a couple of them.
All properties/assets cost half as much as they do on other versions.
You can scroll through radios in both directions.
There are new shadows. (if your device can handle them)
The vegetations looks better.
The vehicle models are from Xbox version, yet the wheels are the same as PC/PS2.
Some songs are removed from radios.
No crouching. (though it was pretty useless, does it really increase accuracy?)
The rest is the same.

No idea if crouching increases accuracy (the game hints yes during one mission), but at least you can cover behind something and shoot someone by bugging game collisions. So yes, it is useful :).

PC is best platform to play Vice City till right now, the only lacked things is that you can't move camera freely in car unlike in console and mobile version

Mobile (iOS and Android) version is still nice to play (especially for traveller), but the controls doesn't good and some graphics doesn't look as good as PC version, for example the water texture looks worse than in PC, however the lighting and dynamic shadow is better, it also pretty bad optimized for newer mobile devices with 64 Bit processor, especially my Galaxy Grand Prime, it doesn't run very good at medium setting, but that's ok to me.
