Whether or not it actually works, you've got to give Rockstar some credit for even attempting to bring crime caper Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to mobile.
This is a game, after all, where you can drive cars and boats, shoot guns, fly planes and choppers, base jump, spray graffiti, bounce low riders, put out fires, do drive-bys, recruit gang members, jump, swim, sprint, and flip off pedestrians.
That was complicated enough on a PS2 controller and that thing looks like the steering wheel for an alien spacecraft. It's quite amazing, then, that all those interactions, and more, can be pulled off on a slab of touch-sensitive glass with a minimum of frustration.
San Andreas is an enormous, funny, varied, and sometimes frustrating PS2 classic that has come to mobile with few compromises and surprisingly good controls
