Overall, Gangstar Rio is another great title from Gameloft. Those guys definitely know what they are doing. I’ve been impressed with every game they have put out so far and this one is no exception. Although the content was a little too much for me at times, players who don’t mind the junk will find it to be an excellent addition to their game collection.
Regardless, I understand that most folks aren't playing these games for the voice acting or even for the story. The most important question is whether Gangstar Rio is actually fun to play. The answer to that is definitely a 'yes.' Rio's improvements to the core gameplay system, combined with better visuals and good music make this game the best yet in the series. However, much like the previous iterations, there are a few issues that prevent the game from living up to its full potential.
While in many aspects Gangstar Rio goes for broke and is bigger and better than its previous incarnations, making it the most comprehensive sandbox style game currently available for iOS, it fails to satisfy thanks to bugs, physics issues and a combat system the needs to be completely retooled.
