A full decade after being made available for PCs and PlayStations, Rockstar’s huge hit Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is now finally up for grabs for mobile gamers too. Just as promised, the action-adventure game went live both in Google Play and on iTunes earlier Wednesday, though Android users have a lot to complain about.
Not only is the support limited to a small and odd list of devices that is missing, among others, phones like HTC’s One X+ and EVO LTE, but there’s also a major “Xapk validation error” blocking users from installing the game. The glitch seems to make its presence felt on a number of other important and popular gadgets, including the Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy S3, which has led to the game’s average evaluation in Google Play to be an awful 1.5 stars. Ouch!
If you can get Vice City to work however, you’ll definitely be satisfied with the “updated” yet retro graphics, awesome controls and “countless” hours of game play. The new GTA installment is $4.99 both in Google Play and iTunes.
