Rated 3/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
This is a clone of the GTA series. The graphics are slightly below GTA 3. If you really love GTA and want to experience it on the iPad, this is your best chance.
Decent graphics for the iPad.
Good choice of ways to steer and drive.
There are couple of things they did well that even GTA still doesn't have. Starting missions from the menu to save time, and being able to purchase some weapons and health, at an inflated cost, through the menu are very nice. Also rotating your view with the iPad is nice too.
Everything drives the same, beaches, roads, grass, same speed on everything
Glitchy, plenty of issues in this game.
Poor pedestrian placement. You will see guys in business suits walking in the beach and can pull girls in bikinis right out of the cab they are driving, pedestrian placement is very random.
So the game is good, and for $8 versus $20-$60, there is not much room to complain, so I gave it a 4 star for being a decent game for what it is, a subquality low-tech clone of GTA.
iPhone Version with Upgrades!

Although I had already purchased the iPhone version of this game, I decided to step up and get the iPad HD version. And WOW! This game is incredible in HD on the iPad. The important visual focal points in the game have been enhanced for the upgrade- and it shows. It's really the little detail-upgrades that made a world of difference for this version.
Controls: The controls have been placed at a more ergonomically-correct position on the iPad. They feel comfortable in your hands as you can now allow the corners of the iPad to rest in the palm of your hands. The Map has also been upgraded- allowing the user to adjust the size of the map itself. When one expands the map, you see a beautiful full-screen city-map.
Graphics: The important things have been adjusted and given a face-lift. The character's faces and clothing have had extra detail added on to give them a sense of realism. When I first saw the sun reflecting off the car (I just stole), I smiled. Everything just looks better. Although I grew up with the pixels of the original Playstation, I am very happy with how smoothed-over and glossy the HD version is over the iPhone version. And you now can run into trees with an automobile! (I don't know if that's a good thing or not!)
Gameplay: This is classic Grand Theft Auto 3. It's missions are well-thought-through and the ability to randomly attack anyone and steal their car is a huge bonus! I do wish the AI was a little more intelligent. Every character in the game is predicable and it's all-too-easy to loose the cops at a one-star criminal-rating. I would like to add that the extensive damage from a higher-speed head-on impact over a lower damage from a lower-speed impact is a huge boost in realism.
Bottom-line: If you like Grand Theft Auto, this game is a MUST HAVE. If stealing cars and causing havoc (in Miami, Florida?) isn't your thing- I wouldn't jump on this paid app. Down-load the free app version for the iPhone and try it out using the "double pixels" on the iPad. If you like what you see- jump on it and invest in this gem. Gameloft are a premiere app software company on the cutting-edge of this market. At the end of the day, good games cost money to create- so supporting these software engineers will allow them to have a job and make more quality games for you!
For anyone with the iPhone version already: It know it's another $6.99, but it's worth it. When you see how smooth these graphics are- you won't regret a thing! Even if you bought both versions, you'll still under $20 for one of the best apps on the market- period. Now that's a deal!
Really awful GTA clone!!!

Within the first five minutes of gameplay, I hit three game-stopping bugs. Plus, the writing is painful, the driving mechanic weak, and combat is so bad you'll avoid it! Really disappointing.
