    comparing this with GTA for iDevices, I can comfortably declare this one the best game ever made on iDevices so far. Simply beyond my expectations. I particularly liked the way they created a huge city environment, it is so much fun to roam free in a stolen car... brings smile to my face :)

    This game is a fun sandbox game but the campaign is insanely hard, for months i've been stuck on the mission "Heroin, Heroine." Money is extremely hard to come by, buy killing rich folks wearing a pink collar shirt, and a suit is an easier way to get money, but still won't get you that far. This game is alright, but I probably won't play it very often.

    The best word describing Gangstar Rio is used in the game as a fictional car brand – "Crapo". Stay away from it, chicos!

    Another slightly cynical but neatly executed take on the GTA format.

    It's no GTA by any means, but Gameloft have still managed to build a city worth playing in, especially if you have the new hardware to experience it in its full glory.
