Welcome back to Vice City. Welcome back to the 1980s.

From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile. Vice City, a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, was one of the most varied, complete and alive digital cities ever created. Combining open-world gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.

To celebrate its 10 year anniversary, Rockstar Games brings Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to mobile devices with high-resolution graphics, updated controls and a host of new features including:

5.0 out of 5 stars Great. September 1, 2013

This game is awesome, and it's only five bucks. That's a pretty sweet deal. It takes a pretty long time to download but what do you expect, it's a pretty big game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Runs on Fire HD 7" September 5, 2013
By Jadius
Verified Purchase
Despite the summary saying it requires the firmware version used by the 8.9" Fire, this does indeed run on the 7". I've found best results setting the display resolution setting down to about 50-60%. At 100% the frame rate is too choppy.

Controls are decent enough, it's a little tricky but with some practice it becomes easier. Definitely recommend running around and doing stuff (moving, jumping, shooting, etc) as practice before doing missions. I haven't been able to figure out how to pull up or down on bikes for wheelies and aiming downward on jumps.

It also doesn't appear to be a battery hog like you might expect. I played for about 30 minutes last night and it only drained around 5% of the battery.

Other than the above, it is virtually identical to the PC or PS2 version right down to all the quirks of the GTA3/VC/SA engine and everything you'd expect from a GTA game. Great game for 5 bucks, can't beat it.

Thank God that Rockstar finally put this on the app store! Now there is no reason to get those lackluster Gangstar games. One complaint though is that the download was very long; about half an hour. Still, definitely pick this up!

5.0 out of 5 stars plays perfect on kindle fire hd! September 1, 2013

I've had a Kindle since day one and this is the best game released so far. We have had cheaper clones but finally we have the real thing. I love it and brings me back to my freshman year in college ten short years ago. Highly recommended for fans of the original console version.

This review is for the Kindle Fire HD - it runs very smoothly. No lagging or glitches. Music is just like I remember it.. the graphics are like eye candy :) very nicely done!!

1) At first, I thought there was a glitch. I uninstalled it from the device (because my screen timed out, thought it caused an issue), and then downloaded it again, to find out, it wasn't a glitch, it was just lack of directions in the game, on how to use it in the Kindle, for walking.

the issue:
*- to walk; place your finger on the screen, it makes a circle, use it to walk with. (yeah, simple, some probably figured that out sooner, but I was trying to make sure I didn't mess anything up while playing the first part - so I only touched minimal, and when it asked you to get out of the car, walk to the hotel door, it didn't tell you how to (for the Kindle & I'm used to game controllers) so I'm sitting there clicking on Tony trying to move him, pinching, swiping, anything, so figured it was due to my screen timing out, caused a glitch in downloading, so uninstalled it then reinstalled it..once it was running again, I figured it out by accident, it wasn't a glitch, all you have to do is just touch the screen and that circle comes up .. and that was my "well duhh" moment) x) ...easy.

2) It took awhile to download (but I had my screen to black out/lock at a certain time; once I turned that to an hour - it downloaded in about 5 to 7 minutes, just as stated)

3) haven't tried shooting yet so not sure how that goes.

The same game of PC version. So the fun is granted. But it uses a lot of space from internal memory and can't be moved to SD. :(

Is this the full game?
This is the full version of the game. From beginning to end, every mission, sub mission, extra everything. It's basically the PC version with slightly updated visuals.

will this work on the first generation kindle fire?
If you mean the very first generation...the answer is no.
To see if your Kindle device is compatible with an app, look on the right side of the product page in the green section. Right under 'Deliver To', you'll see a blue link that says 'compatible devices' click on that to see which Fires are... Read More

Blutooth Controller Support
A Bluetooth controller will work. It works just fine for me. Just make sure you have the Kindle Hd (any model) if you're using that. The Kindle Fire doesn't support Bluetooth.
