Gangstar, West Coast Hustle : Android Game Review

June 8, 2010 - Written By Mike Corbett

App Name: Gangstar: West Coast Hustle, By Gameloft

Description: Move to the West Coast and immerse yourself in L.A. gang life with the new Gangstar. Explore more realistic environments than ever for a unique gameplay experience. Complete 50 different missions that combine the best of action games and driving games.

How it works: Using the directional pad in the left lower corner you run around, a button on the lower right corner can serve as your punching button or if you switch to a weapon it will also control that action.

Walk up to a car and another button appears, pressing it steals the car and then you are off, you then have two more options, the directional pad is replaced by the reverse button and in the right corner the gas button is placed. You steer with the accelerometer in the android device

Opinion: This is probably my favorite of all the gameloft games I have played, really fun. Its very similar to grand theft auto. Its better than the GTA games on play station one and is pretty comparable to Grand Theft Auto China Town Wars on the Nintendo DS. Its fun, it really is, it controls well, its in 3D. The graphics aren’t what they are on DS, but its a different platform with different controls, plus its designed different, either way this game is fun!

Ratings :

· Speed (5/5) The game works well on my droid, its fast, it does the job.

· Features (5/5) Lots going on, tons of fun stuff to do.

· Theme (5/5) – Its a good looking game, its in 3D. They make everything look awesome and so it plays awesome

· Overall (5/5) – Like I said, best gameloft game in my opinion. Awesome and you should go get it now.

Pro:

  • Its fun
  • Its in 3d
  • It has big levels
  • Freedom
  • Easy to use

Cons:

  • The graphics could be a bit better (maybe cell shaded)
  • The loading times take a while

Conclusion: Great game, so fun, so big. I like it a lot, the car driving feels good. The gameplay is good, using guns is easy and fighting feels pretty good as well, it works like it should for this type of game. I like it a lot and I will continue to play it. If you like games like Grand Theft Auto, this may be for you.
