Rockstar International has finally, though without any particularly notable fanfare, released its seminal and genre-defining title Grand Theft Auto III on iOS devices.

For the bargain price of £2.99 you can play the 10th anniversary edition of this classic title.

With on-screen virtual directional controls and context sensitive floating buttons, on iPad or iPhone it's not the most perfect of ports, but with slightly up-scaled graphics and a faster frame-rate, if you can get to grips with the flaky controls then it's up there with the best versions of GTA 3. And if you've never played it before well now's the perfect opportunity to get hands-on with the game that laid the foundations that GTA IV, Saints Row, Just Cause et al have steadily built upon.

Already bought it and playing it? Well let us know what you think.

Looks absolutely fine, but there's no way this is the sort of game I want to play on iOS.

I love it. It's the rally game I've been waiting for since Rallisport Challenge 2 (and it's a lot more technical / satisfying than that!) ...
