Download of the Week: Grand Theft Auto III comes to iPhone, steals its money

All our downloads are piped in with the lightning-quick Virgin Media 50Mb Broadband...

Game: Grand Theft Auto III: 10th Anniversary Edition | Platform: iOS | Publisher: Rockstar | Developer: Rockstar North | Price: £2.99/$4.99

The daddy of the sandbox genre is ten years old and Rockstar's celebrating that fact by releasing it on iPhone. We've played it on iPhone 4S and it's an incredible conversion, looking ultra-sharp and running more smoothly than we could have dreamt. Mobile gaming has an extremely bright future ahead of it.

Sonic CD | XBLA/PS3/iOS | Price: 400 MS Points, PSN £3.49/$4.99, iOS £1.49/$2.99

The Sonic game that nobody played? Might as well be be. This is effectively the 'other' Sonic 2, made at the same time but by a team in Japan while Yuji Naka worked in the US. It's brilliant, especially on iOS where it's nothing short of phenomenal, as our review will attest.

    I would add that GTA III absolutely kills the battery (of my Samsung Galaxy S2 anyway), so don't play it for too long if your phone will have to go most of the day without a charge.

    Okay, I'm just in shock that thay got this running on a cell phone. I need to get one of these things and If I get a game, it will be this. Amazing. Looks nice too.
