Recommended Posts

Its sometimes very laggy on my iphone4.. aaand the amazing Sun Effects are gone now, damnit Rockstar, the Sun was cool. Now there is no Sun...in vice city

The sun effects aren't gone, they've just been disabled because you've got a low-powered device.

I can't wait to get a iPod Touch 5G for Christmas. My 4G runs the game like sh*t. It looks beautiful on the higher end devices.

Everyone needs to chill on the android version unavailability-- it will be out when it is out--

 

All though I'm not exactly sure what the problem is, the one downside of android devices--- it has to be compatible with about 20 different devices from multiple manufactureres while the IOS version only has to work on a few (and very similar deivices) all made (outsourced by) one manufacturer.

 

And once again--- this is a 3rd party port-- I can guarantee that there was minimal direct involvement in this games development from Rockstar Games and Take Two Interactive...

Game runs great on iPhone 5, I just don't like the targeting system; maybe I need to get used to the controls but it's a bit weird for me. Game is great nonetheless.

Hmmm nice bike

I'm liking this so far on the iPhone 4. The only thing I don't like is the fact that even though I've made a playlist called "VICECITY" like Rockstar Support and the game's audio menu says, I can't get the custom soundtrack "Tape Deck" to work. Anyone else having this problem, or is it just me?

 

EDIT: Never mind, they're working now! Now I can enjoy both the regular soundtrack and my own addition, the 80s songs Vice City forgot icon14.gif

 

EDIT 2: Now my only problem is that it restarts back to the beginning of the first song on my playlist every time I pause or exit and re-enter a car. It also only plays that one song, it won't switch to any more and it'll simply replay it again. I simply restarted the game with the first issue, but that didn't help with this.

Wow, to think I was actually looking forward to this. I'm sorry, bit the game is a piece of f*cking sh*t. Rockstar have f*cked this up big time. The game feels like it's running in slow motion, the camera angles are retarded and the controls are designed for f*cking midgets.

 

Vice City is one of my favourite games of all time, but the iOS version if sh*thouse. They have ruined the game and in my opinion it was a waste of $5.50. Yeah, that's how crap it is.

Most of the weapon icons are from gtaIII just recoloured.Yeah, Cockstar basically did not give a flying f*ck about the game that made them a household name. Sad.

Yeah, they've pretty much butchered one of the most legendary games of all time. Have you also noticed the f*cking retarded car handling? Cars are soooooo much slower than usual and you can't turn at ALL without the tyres squealing/smoking.

 

EDIT: Here's another example of stupid glitches, go to 3:21 in this video:

 

 

 

You see, this is something that wouldn't have happened on any of the other versions.

The game plays awesome on my iPhone 5 and graphics looks sweet, nice smooth frame-rate. its a bit laggy on my iPad retina (3rd Gen) but on my phone its great.

 

People moaning have probably got it on older devices.

 

It does say in the description that its optimized for iPhone 5, any other device its going to be inferior.

I'm playing on an iPad 2 and I f*cking despise this version of the game. They've ruined the game that gave Rockstar a name.

Let's put this all together:

 

The Bad:

- Lower quality audio on phonecalls, and in-game (non-cutscene) speech.

- Many famous songs deleted from radios.

- Lags and crashes on officially listed supported devices, like the iPhone 4, and the iPod Touch 4th Gen.

- Ugly and wrong weapon icons. (buzbegone wrote that, the regular shotgun and SPAZ-12 icons are reversed.)

- PC/PS2 wheels, instead of the Xbox ones, no matter what device.

- New file format making most of the modding impossible. (At least for now.)

- Some buttons that could have been there are missing. (Jump button.)

- No separate analog setting for cars and motorbikes.

- Slow cars and Tommy's movements.

- Crap camera when in vehicle.

The Good:

- Xbox vehicle models for better devices.

- Separate fingers in cutscenes.

- Better roads texture.

- New shadows.

 

I was REALLY excited for VC on mobiles. But now, it's not worth it. I'll stick with my precious PC version for now.

Wow, people like to bitch. Some of you are going on like this port is impossible to play.

 

I've had the game for under two days on my iPhone 4, have finished the storyline and am working my way towards 100% for the first time ever in Vice City (Yes, I've played since 2002). Some people need to harden up. I'm still in awe over the sheer magnitude of what we can cram into phones nowadays.

Agree. By buying the game, everyone knew it's not gonna be as good as the PC,PS2 and XBOX versions. I can understand a few issues ( glitches etc. you name it ) but everyone has to understand just because any phone ( again, you name it ) has 512 MB Ram and a good processor the game won't be as good or as smooth. Let's face it: phones have not been made for games, and R* isn't made for mobile games.

My Samsung Galaxy S3 has 1.56 mb of usable RAM... Will let you all know (eventully) how it performs on a higher end android device.

 

If anyone wants to post up and host save files let me know... I can pin a dedicated thread for this. Hopefully there isn't going to be device compatibility issue (ie iphone 4 vs iphone 5).

You kidding right ?

 

Those glitches happen in the original version.

 

I guess you either have not played the game in a long time or its your first time playing it, the tyres squealing/smoking happen in the original.

The people who ported the game is not a part of R* so complain to them.

This glitch is rare, When people is get out of the car they are still in the animation that's why the car go through them.

Actually, by not improving and actually making a ten year game WORSE than it was TEN YEARS AGO is pretty f*cking hsameful and direct evidence the Jousers no longer care about GTA.

The majority of the game is just a port and that's not a bad thing. Yeah there are a few issues with it but they can easily fix those problems in the next update. Most of the issues aren't even serious, like Jesus Christ I'm just glad this game is actually on mobile phones.

Please note that R* AREN'T supposed to care for the old GTA games. They said that they are a third-party company, so if they have the chance to make something on Apple, they make it on apple. I can see your feelings ( Vice is your favorite ) but other than accepting the game how it is, you can't do anything else. A patch or update will surely be released soon.
