Grand Theft Auto Face-Off

In case you haven't seen Twitter today (or Facebook, or the news) Grand Theft Auto V came out on consoles this morning.

While Rockstar did release a companion app for iOS called iFruit which lets you tap into your GTA V experience via Rockstar's Social Club, it's not a GTA game in its own right.

However, the past few years have seen no less than three classic Grand Theft Auto games arrive on the App Store. Question is, which one is our favourite?

Let's find out, shall we?

Driving was always the best part of GTA and I have to agree with Djrella659, I never liked the left and right buttons for driving - it is so hard to just drive in a st line! Ganster has a tilt control approach but that too was pretty poor - and the game was just inferior to the GTA games. Vice city was one on my favourite games on the old xbox

I didn't say I didn't like the buttons. On the contrary, I was pretty okay with them. I hated how the cars in Vice City both accelerate too slowly and handle like you're constantly driving on ice, whereas in GTA III tho is not as big of an issue.

I HATED vehicular controls more than anything in VC, which played as a majority of transportation and fun in the game. Cars in VC handled like they were on ice constantly, accelerated too slowly, and seemed way too prone to flips and spinouts. There's also the little gripe of a smaller map and very limited sprinting capability that got to me...

I, personally, put GTA III above Vice City. The graphics look smoother, vehicles handle a lot better, running from the cops seems more exciting, and missions have more intent behind them. Plus, I didn't have to hear the radio start right from the smack-middle of Pressing Issues on VCPR every time I continued my game.

Sorry Dave and James, but this is one of those few times where I really disagree. :/
