Boy, how time passes. Ten years ago, Rockstar Games entered the third dimension with GTA III for the PlayStation 2. To celebrate the 10th anniversary and the huge success GTA became since then, Rockstar Games today released a remake for iOS and Android.
Grand Theft Auto III is a sandbox-style action adventure in which you play Claude Speed. He and his girlfriend Catalina robbed the bank in Liberty City, but Catalina betrayed Claude after the coup.
