Gangstar Vegas is an exciting action game on the mean streets of Sin City. It is the fourth in a series of GTA-style GT-style open-world games and the largest ever.
Thrills and sins spread to the city
At Gangstar Vegas you work as a prizefighter, who upsets a mob boss and must run to take his life. This is an old story and there is little originality in the way Gangstar Vegas plays the story. The personality of the main character seems a bit wooden and the screenplay is very cliché (some characters that look good, however good). However, this does not mean that Gangstar Vegas is not fun to play – quite the opposite in fact.
The game world in Gangstar Vegas is immense – incredibly it is nine times larger than the previous game, Gangstar Rio APK. There are 80 different missions in total, and they vary greatly in terms of gameplay, ranging from prize battles to chasing bad guys on foot, taking part in road races. Gangstar Vegas has many challenges in which you can compete against others in online leaderboards.
The Quick Play mode in Gangstar Vegas APK allows you to participate in unilateral challenges, such as heists, brawls, survival, and time attacks. This way it is great to dive straight in and play, especially if you are away from the game for a long time and want to brush up on your skills before getting back into the main story.
Vegas set is a lot of fun, whether it’s chasing bad guys at high speed are in the casino to earn more cash getting blackjack games. When you play, you’ll realize how much Gangstar Vegas has to discover and the level of detail in the game world is impressive.
Gangstar bats, guns, grenades, Molotows, Flemthro and baseball in Vegas to collect and advanced to a lot of weapons are. The shop allows you to transform your look with new clothes, a haircut, or even a chipmunk mask! Of course, you can also purchase vehicles, and the selection is very diverse, covering everything from mopeds and trial bikes to monster trucks and tanks.
Taking to the streets
Control in Gangstar Vegas is similar to previous versions of the game. You walk using an on-screen directional pad and have action buttons for walking, shooting and interacting with objects.
Driving controls can be set up according to what you feel is easy, allowing you to choose between tilt, arrow or stick-based steering. It’s great that you can define different control systems for cars and bikes, so you can use arrow-based steering for cars and tilt-based for motorcycles if you want.
There is a ubiquitous city map, which shows you where the missions are and displays various points of interest. Usually, you can leave a mission in Gangstar Vegas without having to drive straight to the start point, which is easy. A small map in the corner of the screen shows your current position.
The graphics in Gangstar Vegas are very good and rival the mobile versions of GTA III or Vice City. The city of Las Vegas is brought to life with an incredible level of detail and it really transforms you into a story.
The animation is great and the precise ragdoll effects make the stunts a real treat. There are occasional graphical glitches with most such giant games, but not enough to detract from the overall experience. The characters look good, although the voice acting in the locations is poor.
Be warned that poor language and adult themes affect dialogue, so Gangstar Vegas is certainly not suitable for children, and is classified accordingly. Like the GTA, Gangstar Vegas features in-car radio, and the range of stations is heavily influenced by the Rockstar game series. There are some licensed quality tunes, though with some to suit everyone.

Gangstar Vegas borrows so much from Grand Theft Auto that you will forget that it is a completely different game series. Of course, this is not a bad thing and Gangstar Vegas is so big and deep that you will struggle to find a better sandbox action for mobile – GTA included.
