Five years ago, Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas, a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.

Now, it’s the early 90’s. Carl’s got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.

On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.

  • Gta gta

    by Gameplay007

    Fix the radio please please do a update gta

  • Mind Blowing Awesome!!!!!

    by Blksharkie

    This game is beyond belief amazing. The first "real" console port I've ever played on a phone. The fact that it is the best GTA. It's the best GTA because the story is the coolest and the "sims" type character maintaining is will allow you to get emerged in the character. 5 star my first review.

  • Wont open

    by AwsomeCreater

  • Crashes!!

    by Tuna Ulusahin

    I can't do the mission "sweet's girl"

  • Crash

    by hinesforhines

    The game is cool, ..however upon a crash of the game, progress it lost, ..such as location, and most of all, ..the new clothes purchased, tattoo etc. are gone just as soon as you enter back in game. Not use to this with other open world games ..where you are when you crash, or leave the game is that way when you start up again. Please fix, ..and please consider better means of moving around in cars, etc. such as gyroscope . The controls make some would be easy missions a bit hard.

  • Gta San Andreas btwn iPod and iPad

  • Always crashes for iPod 5

    by Cowmaster101

    The only thing I know needs to be fixed is the constant crashing on iPod 5th gen

  • My favorite game on the App Store, but one bad glitch

    by Santa6464

    Gta sa is the best you'll get on the AppStore nowadays. A solid price for a solid game. No in app purchases at all, which is a rare but great treat that doesn't happen much anymore. I play this game all the time, for I don't have a console, and this is one of the most console quality ios games ever. One glitch holds it back from true greatness. Although this probably isn't even a problem for some people the horse betting shop does not work. It takes your money, and when you win, you don't get your reward. This isn't a game breaking glitch, for it does not interfere with progression throughout the game, it would be nice to have it fixed because me and probably some other people having this glitch might want to make fast easy money and this is the best way. Great production rock star and hats off to you, but please try as hard as you can to fix this minor problem because it would make my experience 101 times better

  • Soooooo much better than the previous iOS GTAs!!!!

    by Read The TRUTH

    Really fun! Driving controls are good but its a little hard to turn. LOVE the new energy bar and new skill statistics and cycling skills! Also the eating and hair cuts!!!!!! Awesome

  • I like the game but

    by Peanuts in the ASAP

    I like this game but it's to easy to die I get shot at for like five seconds and I'm almost dead then it keeps crashing I can't even get past 'sweets girl' because because the app crashes


    by Best game on my ipad mini

    GTA MAKING A COMBAT ON IOS!!!!! Nice job

  • Classically Awesome & Optimized

    by SneakyDoo

    10 years ago, I wouldn't think GTA 3 and Vice-City would appear in our pockets portably, let alone San Andreas- my all time favorite PS2 title and one of my favorite games overall. The control scheme is greatly optimized and the visuals are even better than PC with updated reflection resolution, lighting, textures, and shadows. The game features everything from the original game- working out, the 3 diverse cities, mini-games, collectables, diving underwater, stats to improve, missions, and much more. One problem is that it gets your device hot quite fast, but other than that, get the game!

  • Crash

    by Not_the_droid

    The game keeps on crashing on my ipad 2 and no matter what I do to fix it nothing works. But other than that the game is really great.

  • iPod 5

    by Figgleshmurph

    Crashes every time I try to play the game and I can't enter restaurants to eat it won't let my go in. So plz fix the game and DONT IGNORE THIS! I luv this game and I want to play it

  • Great but

    by --Dovy--

    After completing the paramedic missions, the health bar is increased but it is not becoming full when I save the game. Please fix this soon.

  • I thought

    by SushiTeenAdultGuy

    I thought it said it was for Ipod touch Apparently not for ipod 4th gen :/ But beautiful graphics for 2004 game

  • New and a little bit better

    by Small_villian

    I'm happy you fixed pier 69, but the frame-rate and crashing makes it hard to pass a lot of the missions later on the game. Fix the crashing for iPad mini and you have my 5 stars.

  • iPad mini

    by Facebooker(:

    Game keeps crashing


    by fogcityfilms

    I want my $7 back. This game is virtually unplayable with endless consistent crashes. It's states iPhone 4S is supported which I have and every other program I hae works flawlessly. 5 star reviews are of the original game, not this app version which always crashes. That's why when it was released it had an average 5 star review to get us to pay $7. Now after use, the real reviews come in and it's at 3 stars because it's so buggy. If it didnt always crash it would be a fun game. Just fix it please it give me my $7 back!

  • Casino Hiest

    by james bond007 007 007

    I've played this game for about 2 weeks but now whenever I start it up, the game loads up the crashes. the game is great but the only reason I am giving a 2 star is because of all of the crashes. iPod touch 5g

  • Update just made it worse.

    by husky_boy_752

    30 seconds into the game it crashed already. The updates just make the game more worse. I'm really disappointed in the $4 or $6 I spent. Fix this game and I'll give it 5 stars.

  • Great game… but

    by $üpåfrëäk

    It worked for about 2 weeks but then when I try to play it, when its supposed to start it crashes. FIX THIS!!!

  • Great game (when you can play it)

    by Gjhfjfhfjfijicfkcjfijvfjfvkm

    I played SA on my ps2 back in the day, and was super excited when it came to ios, but on my 4S it crashes ALL THE TIME! I had to redo the Freddy mission 4 times after I beat it. Other than that, great graphics, stays true to its roots, can't think of a better way to celebrate 10 years

  • Crashing

    by Hdhvejuxdb


  • Good game... Crashes way too much though

    by Kldmckldm

    This is an awesome game. However on an iPad 2 it crashes every half an hour not that big of a problem but annoying. On the Hoover dam dive, the plane will not let you sky dive. You can't finish the game with that glitch. Will change my review if fixed.

  • Update please for controllers

    by Austin1234567

    by Michaelpurcell11

    Hey guys this game is the best GTA game on the App Store but everytime i try and play it after it loads my world it crashes i got a iPad 2 if u need that so make a bug fix update.

  • Cheats

    by Cjb564

    It's an amazing game! I think it's actually better than gta 4! But just a suggestion, There are cheats in the playstation version, but not on the ios one. I'm not able to see the Easter egg on the top of the bridge because I need a jetpack. So please consider adding cheats. Thanks!

  • Can't say enough good things, except

    by shogunhitotiri

    Could you do something about hitting people or things in general that will then throw the whole car into loops and 360s, and maybe when the cars flip over you have an option of a way to flip them back over without the car exploding. But besides that is a wonderful game. Also you need to fix the horse betting races I've been been winning and not getting any money for it.

  • Thanks rock star

    by Bisa101

    This is my third time downloading gta it keeps on lagging me out of the app and if u guys can fix that then it would be great

    by 1/2 a game

    Glitch prevents CJ from building swim skill, can't do mission for woozie, cannot continue game before completing that mission. If it wasn't 1/2 a game because of that it would be 5 stars. Great game play just like og version, on my iPhone5 and I pad air it doesn't crash

    by Blackjackwhite

    Game always had minor crashing issues but frequency has been exacerbated since I updated to iOS 7. At this point it is basically unplayable.

  • Вылетает каждый раз

    by Магили


  • Good but…

    by Gumball's army

    I am playing this on my iPod 5th gen, and earlier in the year I noticed that it was crashing on the loading screen. I did not mind reloading the game because I would really enjoy playing it again. When I got to the same point in the story, it still crashed at the loading screen. I am now waiting for an update to come, so I won't have to reload it. DO NOT BUY THIS ON YOUR iPOD 5th GEN UNTIL THERE IS AN UPDATE!!

  • It even crashes on iPad 4...

    by Hardcore Britt

    This game is amazing when it's good. But on some missions that are big it crashes and doesn't load and crashes as soon as loading bar gets to then end...come on rock star you have to at least get it right for iPad. Amazing graphics, pretty sick customs and cars but the bugs have to be fixed. Somewhat disappointing. Please fix this!


    by MushroomWarsFan

    This game is really good but it crashes every time i press resume, or i go to start a mission, which really ruins the game. Fix this or i want my money back!! First off, whenever I press resume it crashes. When i load game it works but it starts off from the 3rd mission. Every time I try a NEW mission, the game crashes. The "update" has done nothing, and I WANT MY FREAKING money back!

  • Crashing Rage!

    by Thealbumrater

    GTA San Andreas is an exceptional game once you are able to overcome the wacky controls and the annoying slowness. If you are a fan of GTA then you must get this, but be aware that if don't have any of the recent apple products then the game will crash about every thirty minutes. Countless amount of times I have been ending a long frustrating mission and all of sudden it crashes and loses all my progress. Overall great game you should buy it but Rockstar please update it so the crashing never occurs.

  • Bug

    by AppleTechRo

  • Don't waste your money☝

    by Ben Trevor Parker

    I play this on the ps2 and there is a few places that I like. And it seems right whenever I get to all of the places that I like it always keep " x- ing" out on me. I have deleted all of my apps except 3 and it still keeps on. Then I delete all of my pictures and still kept on. So I would not recommend this. It was so fun, so I guess I will have to find another game thats BETTER

It still crashes sometime on my iPod 5 but come on this is Gta San Andreas the best ps2 game of all time and you can play it right on your phone. By the way please add cheats if possible that was the best thing about San Andreas. Thank you Rockstar for bringing the best Gta of all time to mobile! I experienced some glitches but I know you will fix then all eventually
