Rockstar Games is looking to fix that with Grand Theft Auto III, which has now been ported over as well. It is essentially a direct port, with most of the effort going in the direction of controls rather than content. Both touch and gamepad controls are supported.

GTA III is reasonably priced at $4.99, but you may want to hold off a few weeks before buying. Currently the game has received only 3.4 stars. Most of the negative reactions are from users who can’t start the game on their device.

Users might also put off by the 431MB additional file download required before the game can start. Yep, that’s right – you’ll need to suck down nearly half a gig of data before playing. Connecting to Wi-Fi is a good idea.

Even with these complaints, the release of GTA III for Android is significant. This is a full, console-quality game with all of its art, voice-overs and gameplay intact. If you can make it run, it should be a heck of a good time.

    "This is a full, console-quality game"... from 10 years ago! And the controls are terrible.
