GANGSTAR: CRIME CITY
Boy, Grand Theft Auto creator Rockstar has a lot to answer for. Not to the politicians or parental lobbies who've slammed the violence in its games. But to those of us who are sick of the number of clone games that GTA has inspired.Which brings us neatly to Gangstar: Crime City, a game so much like GTA, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Gameloft just put a PS2 disc in a photocopier and Tippexed out the name. There's even an odd similarity to one or two bits of artwork in both games.You can't blame them, though. As the best-selling game in the world, GTA has a lot going for it, so whoever (legally) nails the art of replicating its closely-guarded formula on mobile deserves some credit.
In total then, although it's not the best it could be, Gangstar: Crime City is a good stab/shot/other-violent-metaphorical-verb at turning GTA into mobile form. Solid, if not completely polished. Plush PSP owners might prefer the real deal, Grand Theft Auto Vice City stories after all offering the original source material on their console, but the rest of us pimped-up tricked-out gangstars won't go wrong in deciding to stump up a mere fiver for Gameloft's GTA-like fun.
