Gangstar Vegas (originally known as Gangstar 4 and is alternatively known as Gangstar 4: Vegas) is an open world action-adventure video game developed by Gameloft for Android, iOS (both iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad) . It is the fifth main installment in the Gangstar series, and was released on June 7, 2013. Gangstar Vegas is preceded by Gangstar Rio: City of Saints and is succeeded by Gangstar New Orleans.


Gangstar Vegas is set in modern-day Las Vegas, Nevada. The story revolves around Jason Malone, a skilled MMA fighter who is targeted by Frank Veliano after winning in a match. Like games in the Grand Theft Auto series, Gangstar Vegas has elements from driving games and third-person shooters, and features “open-world” gameplay that gives the player more control over their playing experience.



During its release, it received mixed reviews from critics and players alike, whom they criticized the laggy graphics, animation, and its frequent updates, but praised the music and the extensive use of 3D graphics, which some players noted as an improvement of the previous game. It was also a commercial success, having been downloaded 50 million times from iOS and Android.

Gangstar Vegas is structured similarly to previous games in the series, and by extension, to Grand Theft Auto and its numerous clones. The overall play area is much larger, with Gameloft marketing it as “Gangstar’s largest open world”. In addition to the main storyline, players can free roam and/or partake in a number of side activities, namely bank robberies, street racing and underground fighting tournaments. Property management is also present, allowing the player to gain income through businesses acquired during the course of the game. In keeping with the game’s Las Vegas theme, casino minigames such as video poker, blackjack and slot machines were also introduced, along with a number of establishments such as a nightclub and convenience stores.[1]



Additional contents[edit]

A number of updates were added to Gangstar Vegas after its initial release, among them a Saints Row-esque Gangstar vs. Aliens pack,[2] and a Christmas-themed update adding new clothing and vehicles such as a rocket-powered sleigh. In addition, the game has since been released as a free-to-play title, with bonus content available through microtransactions.[3] Its frequent use of updating also received criticism from some fans and critics, whom they noted the lack of weapons, vehicles, and costumes, and the lag graphics part.
