Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas launches on Android, endless fun ensues

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas may be the most popular GTA ever made, aside from the new GTA V of course. But its fame is nearly unparalleled in the gaming universe. It was a great game, especially for its time, and is still a lot of fun today. Now, it has been released on Android so you can play it on the go!

The game features remastered graphics that don’t look much different from the originals, so you won’t feel like this game is pulling away from the original. There’s also full controller support, so you can play this game properly with a Bluetooth controller. And with somewhat complicated controls, we do recommend a controller (although Rockstar does well with on-screen controls).

The game seems to be giving some people a bit of trouble. There are reports that it isn’t starting after download. It’s probably a launch issue and will get worked out soon, but you might want to wait until the positive reviews start pouring in. But tell us, do you have any memories of playing the original? If so, will you be buying this port? Leave a comment!

    All of that waiting and its not compatible with my android device.(Lenovo yoga tablet). I hope they fix the bugs and make it available for my device, I mean I know its a new device but still, I was so excited to play this again.

    Nope, not working on Nexus 7 2012. It just crashes in the downloading screen. Hopefully Rockstar will get an update, or take it out from the market.

  • Zander Claassen

    Why isn’t it available on Samsung Galaxy Note 2 but is on S3 is it that dam 4.3 software update ?

    • DomBreth

  • StevenStills

    Definitely wait until this is patched, it doesn’t work on my Nexus 5 despite the fact that we’ve had 2 “patches” in the last 24 hours…surely you’d think they’d test the freaking game on Google’s flagship handset? It’s not just the Nexus 5 though, go to the Play store and people with the Nexus 4 also have the same issue.

    They should not have released it yet. I’ve been looking for something decent to test my Nexus 5 with but this is terrible from Rockstar, I’ve put my sim card into my 2 year old iPhone 4S and I’m having a go at Infinity Blade 3 until Rockstar get the Android version of San Andreas fixed…yes my 2 year old ancient iPhone runs games better than my flagship nexus. Even Vice City runs with zero lag on my 4S, yet on my much more powerful Nexus there’s lag at various points.

  • Anony

    Actually, GTA:San Andreas is still the most popular Grand Theft Auto game released. That’s a fact. It has wayy more views because of mods, let alone worldwide recognition and sales.

  • Adrian Clark
  • Christian Camano
