The Grand Theft Auto games are on sale, so get them while they're hot!
If violent car stealing, thug shooting action and brilliant, gangster movie-like plots are what has been missing from your life, now is the perfect time to indulge into what you've been longing for. Rockstar Games just slashed the prices of all mobile Grand Theft Auto games it has on Android and iOS. Currently, GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: Chinatown Wars can be had for $2.99 each, while GTA: San Andreas goes for $4.99.

Originating from the Sony PlayStation 2 (or the Sony PSP, in the case of Chinatown Wars), each GTA title has a crazy amount of content for a mobile game, and is also a gaming classic in its own right. There aren't many games on mobile that deliver such vast cityscapes and sense of freedom. GTA: San Andreas, in particular, spans an entire fictional state that's based on sections of California and Nevada, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Venturas. Vice City is also pretty amazing for its 80s Miami atmosphere, and a storyline that plays out like an interactive tribute to Scarface. GTA 3, the oldest of the bunch, is a fun gangster trek full of memorable characters and gratuitously bloody action, while Chinatown Wars is an excellent homage to the original top-down GTA games from the 90s.

The GTA games hold up pretty fine on mobile, although not everyone will find the touchscreen controls perfect. Still, you have lots of liberty when it comes to customizing them, so you should be able to work something out. Get the games while they're hot!

Playing GTA on a touchscreen is like drinking bourbon with the alcohol removed. Rockstar couldn't even PAY ME to play it on my GS5.

Yeah, the touchscreen controls are horrible, unless you're using a controller it's not worth it.

I have played the mobile GTA III with both touch screen and controller. Controller is much better for the game. However, not all mobile game are better with controller. The mobile game Wild Blood is better with touch screen.

Yeah, I haven't played Vice City since it first came out. I'm really excited about playing this game again! Question, getting these things configured on a bluetooth controller isn't overly difficult correct? Any suggestions on what controller to buy?

Avoid cheap controller, get Moga or Nexus controller. Its just standard bluetooth pairing. Most 2014 onward game titles support controller. GTA 3 a must. Otherwise i can't even control the car properly.

Great series- San Andreas the best. With a controller it should be alright on 5.5 screen. I guess a SD slot card would be useful.

So much love for the gta series. But i do not like to play them on my phone. As mentioned above a controller is must. So gta like games stay on my pc and phone is used only for casual gaming!

I strongly feel that EA should release the old nfs games like ug1,ug2, mw and carbon on mobile devices! It will be an instant buy from me! But EA is busy looting people with its freemium games!

Excellent gaming experience when playing with my PS3 controller! Only problem is that the phone heats up too much after about 10 minutes of playing! There should be a cooling system like laptops for phones!

just Search on google with the name of the game. It is available on many websites for free.
