It works fine on the Desire HD if you can put up with the controls.

Same can't be said for the Desire though..

NO FR*GGING way. And if it did, the battery would be drained within minutes.
On a tangent: GTA3 - especially its car handling - is pretty fiddly to control - even on an iPad or Iconia. Anyone who says it's fun on a sub-7incher is easily amused :p
Great concept, but until Rockstar figure out how to implement decent Touch Controls, it's merely visually impressive. Not gameplaywise.

I think what Jan meant was, no it doesn't work due to the fact the DHD is a 1ghz single core device with an Adreno 205 GPU, neither of which are up to the task of running GTA3, as opposed to "NO FR*GGING way" :p.

It's a bitch to control the cars properly on the touch screen, even on my 9.7" TouchPad it's still a bit unpredictable. It's great if you use a PS3 controller instead of the touch screen though :p.

...that and...heck, just use a PS3 and play San Andreas :p

PS - "no fr*gging way" summed up your geeky pedantery quite nicely, didn't it ;) :p

The day Rockstar port San Andreas to mobile...I'll be a very happy person :p.

You could just use a PS3 to play SA, but a PS3 isn't exactly convenient to take with you to play with in your lunch break ;).

Oh and "geeky pedantary" my ar*e, I prefer to refer to it as an explanation :p.

Rockstar ARE working on SA for the iPad. The version for Macs is in the Mac Appstore, and doing rather well. If the controls are good, yep, I'd buy an iPad just to watch CJ get fat :p

OFI,
Do you run it on the Desire HD? It's not officially supported - and for a reason ;)
Can you define "runs fine"? Hahahah have you played for long periods of time?

Matt, seems we've got it wrong?!!!

And anyway, here is just one of the many threads that would suggest "running fine" is subjective ;)
