  • Summary: Enjoy the most immersive full-3D crime simulation ever on iPhone/iPod touch! Gangstar: Miami Vindication has a new, unique feel that delivers a deep storyline of revenge: plunge into Miami gang life and live a fast-paced adventure to liberate your little brother who has been kidnapped by the Armada gang for unknown reasons…
    OPTIMIZED FOR iPhone 4! High-definition graphics that fully utilize the iPhone 4 Retina display.

    - A long lifespan, far beyond the typical iPhone game, with more than 75 varied missions: infiltrate gangs, snipe enemies, escort witnesses, chase cars and survive the jungle of Miami.
    - An amazing reconstruction of an entire sprawling metropolis with a massive open-ended environment that recreates Miami, including Downtown, Miami Beach, The Harbor, Miami Bay, and The Swamps.
    - Beware of the Miami PD! Thanks to the new improved AI, the cops will react intelligently and call for FBI reinforcements if needed.

    - New amazing vehicles to drive, from regular cars & motorcycles to boats, jet skis and even a helicopter!
    - Storyline missions will take you inside each of these vehicles as you race, chase and take on time trials.
    - Defeat rival gang members by using a new arsenal of weapons including grenades, flame throwers and Molotov cocktails. See just how it feels to blow out Miami!

    - A deep storyline of revenge: the scenario was jointly written with a scriptwriter from the popular TV show, “The Wire” and is delivered by countless breathtaking, voice acted cutscenes.
    - A true feeling of freedom: complete missions at your own pace and do absolutely anything you want, by day or by night.
    - Radio stations broadcast popular songs from famous hip-hop, rock and electro artists, including artists from the famous Ninja Tune label.

    It's not as epic as GTA: Vice City, but we have to respect the ambition that brought Miami Vindication to the iPhone.

    A sequel in every sense, Gangstar 2 features the same name and style branding while introducing new characters, new missions, new vehicles, and a new storyline in which to continue your sociopathic criminal fantasies.

    A fantastic sandbox game and is one of my most played iPhone games.

    It's not perfect but it sure is fun, which is why, despite some hesitation, the game has scored so highly.

    An improvement over West Coast Hustle and will entertain gamers looking for a 3D Grand Theft Auto-style adventure for the iPhone. This is certainly no quick shot affair either. With over 70 missions, you can pull ten or so hours out of it.

    Miami Vindication, the second Gangstar game for the iDevices, can provide a more wide-ranging experience than West Coast Hustle, thanks to its bigger city, truly different vehicles and less repetitive missions. Unfortunately, some of the previous episode's issues are still there, including annoying pop-ups, lack of bug fixes, very few side quests and whimsical controls.

    All of this would have been acceptable in the nineties, but expectations change. Sure, it's only a few quid, but for once it feels like you're getting what you pay for.
