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.

 

Thanks.

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.

One i thing i noticed is weapons.
PC:manual aim on all sub-machin guns,assualt rifles etc
MOBILE:atuo-aim for all the above
For mobile minigun is especially bad since no auto aim neither manual aim so u just gotta move the gun by moving tommy left or right.
Thats all i noticed!

They moved all of the Havana clothing pickups to the same accessible location on mobile so you don't need to worry about certain mission moving it where you can't get at it.

No Fire Trucks spawn when you make fires, as I noticed.  I tried the Rampage right next to Ocean Beach killing 30 Gang Members with Molotovs.  Passed it 7 times...0/7 times a Fire Truck comes.  You know what that means?  No Fire Truck Level 12 can be complete in Mobile for a Starter Save.  And no, not on the West Island early, either, cuz using that Fire Truck will spawn fires on the EAST Island, even though you are on the West Island.  Same for Vigilante.  Luckily, you can use the Hunter to do Vigilante Level 12 in a Starter Save and bring it over to the East Island via flying.  But the Fire Truck is a no go.  No matter how many fires I make, no Fire Trucks ever come.  Tbh, I find VC the WORST of the Ports.  III, SA, and CTW were a lot better, except for the fact that SA crashed on a daily basis during my playthrough, which was very annoying.

 

When robbing stores you just use your finger and click the clerk in the store.  There is no free aim to aim a gun at the guy.  Took me a while to figure that one out.  Really bad Port, imo...

I have not played the Mobile Version of the game, but I don't think I would enjoy it as much as playing it on my PC. :)

I only like III, VC, SA Mobile for the convenience and tbh, everything is quite easy compared to a PS2/3 Controller.  It's like the same thing for me.  Very easy...

 

As for CTW, well, Mobile is the ONLY possible way I can play it and it's all I know, so I wouldn't want to play CTW on anything other than my Phone, tbh...
