Gangstar: Miami Vindication is Gamloft’s GTA clone originating from the iPhone and then coming to Mac.
This is a second example of where Gameloft have ported a game to Mac inspired by a franchise that has already made itself known on the Mac App Store in the form of Rockstar’s GTA: San Andreas. The first being Gameloft’s Modern Combat series, a copy cat of Aspyr’s Call of Duty.
Whereas Gangstar may not match the technical superiority of the GTA games, it indeed offers a cheaper alternative to the genre which may be enough to entice players in. You can expect our review of Gangstar soon, where we’ll let you know if it’s really worth the saving.
