Tap and touch-based mayhem, I say!
There is almost nothing new at all I can tell you about this game which launched a franchise, made millions, stirred controversy, inspired imitators, and has come right back around to a new release on Android and iOS devices. It's available today for $4.99, so you can pick it up and maybe relive your first memory of stealing a car and then yelling at it for its janky handling. Then kind of fall in love with said janky handling.
Here's what Rockstar PR had to say about the release:
