Grand Theft Auto 3 for iPhone and iPad now available on App Store

Announced over a week ago, the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 3 from Rockstar Games has finally landed on the App Store.

Welcome to Liberty City. Where it all began.

Rockstar Games celebrates the 10th anniversary of one of the most influential games of all time. The critically acclaimed blockbuster Grand Theft Auto III comes to mobile devices, bringing to life the dark and seedy underworld of Liberty City. With a massive and diverse open world, a wild cast of characters from every walk of life and the freedom to explore at will, Grand Theft Auto III puts the dark, intriguing and ruthless world of crime at your fingertips.

GTA III was one of my favorite games on the PS2, and with updated graphics and optimized touch screen controls, there’s no reason not to pick this classic up. I was able to squeeze in an hour of play this morning, and so far it’s been an absolute blast. The good ol’ Liberty City memories are all flooding back. The game is universal and supports the most recent iDevices: iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4, iPad 1 and iPad 2. Check out the video trailer and gameplay demo after the gap.
