GTA 3 On The iPad, We Take A Look
We have been closely following the release of GTA 3 on the iPad and are more then proud to say that the A5 chip found in the iPad 2, more then compliments the game. GTA 3 on the iPad itself, was a massive challenge in terms of adapting the software, harnessing the graphics, as well as constantly streaming the world around you, whilst the player transgresses it without any limits. Although, Rockstar do admit, bringing GTA 3 on the iPad would have been more of a headache, as it would not have adapted to last generation technology, and provided the seamless world for the user to explore.
And, Rockstar have also provided for future versions of GTA 3 on the iPad, making sure it is not scaled, therefore future iPad tablets would be able to deliver better graphics, quicker, faster reactions and an improved all round experience, with examples flying around such as PC like capabilities in terms of sliders and graphics.
GTA 3 On The iPad 2, Get Down To Business
As mentioned before, in our other posts, Rockstar are still tweaking and refining the controllers, specifically of the GTA 3 on the iPad. Due to the fact there is no external controller, and everything would have to be done on screen. he However, Rockstar are not just focussing on the basic controllers, but also button sensitivity aswell for example. Even though there are alot of adjustments to be made, and users may need to make a sacrifice to play GTA 3 on the iPad, we can say it does run absolutely spectacularly, recreating graphics similar to the PS2, and alot easier on the iPad.
Rockstars major ace is the fact that the final button scheme is down to the individual player. GTA 3 on the iPad will allow the user to adjust their appearance, change everything from the minimap, to resizing the legend, adjusting the buttons switching them around etc. The level of flexibility is very promising, encouraging, and downright exciting for GTA 3 on the iPad.
Now, After The Techie Bit, What Is GTA 3 On The iPad?
Very obvious, yet important question to ask, what does GTA 3 on the iPad bring to the user?
Well for a fact we can say that compared to the PS2 release, it is exactly the same with hardly anything changed in terms of story line and gameplay. Although a few adjustments have been made on missions, this is because of the touchscreen capabilities, and to allow the user to fully complete a mission whilst being comfortable with the new control scheme, this has a knock on effect on the difficulty levels aswell.
But, all in all, everything is still there for GTA 3 on the iPad, would many adult bits, such as using the services of a late night lady, being readily available, Rockstar justifying the move by saying that there is a market for this on mobile and console platforms, and GTA 3 on the iPad, will allow them to address both simultaneously. Although, we will have to see Apples reaction to this.
Other neat aspects such as the radio will be exactly the same as the GTA 3 on the PS2. Originally it was speculated Rockstar would add a few more stations, alongside custom user playlists imported from their library, however, efforts were more focussed on improving the gaming experience of GTA 3 on the iPad. Although patches will be integrated by independent developers we suspect, but it will not come as default.
All in all, Rockstar seem to be putting all their usual efforts, and quality on bringing a brilliant piece of gaming to a massive market. GTA 3 on the iPad will surely, at this rate, become a norm.
