Throughout the life of Apple’s App Store, we have seen numerous games trying to clone Grand Theft Auto, but so far, none have come close. Gameloft‘s, Gangstar: West Coast Hustle, features an action packed 3D city complete with detailed buildings, stunning landscapes, as well as impressive cars that animate and take crash damage just as they would in Grand Theft Auto. Even the vocabulary that the character’s use is similar.
Gangstar is an almost ideal replica of GTA for the iPhone and iPod Touch. If you’re not in the mood to complete the 50 different missions, you can always drive or walk around exploring the city, shoot at and fight your enemies, or steal vehicles.
You can easily drive around a variety of vehicles thanks to the touch screen controls. You can also aim at pedestrians or other gang members by simply tapping your target on the screen. The auto-aiming feature in the game makes this even easier.
When you’re driving a car you can easily change the radio stations by swiping your finger across the radio or if you don’t like the programmed stations, you can go right ahead and listen to your own music stored in your music library.
Of course, this review has only featured a handful of features that Gangstar has to offer. It is rated 12+ as is available in the App Store for $6.99. Click HERE to download it.
