Fantastic - I purchased this after I had successfully connected a sixaxis controller to my 09' macbook pro and after downloading a joystick mapper app I got it running great. I was hesitant that it wouldn't work well on my machine but I haven't had any problems whatsoever. The graphics seemed to decline a bit as it was connected to my HDTV but on the macbook it looks fantastic…better than I remember it looking on PS2. I stayed up until 2 playing it and as soon as I finish I'm moving on to Vice City!
DOES NOT WORK - It doesn’t work on my mac at all.

A classic by any standard - GTA III was the premier 3D open world criminal playground. It revolutionized what 3D games meant and where the sandbox genre could go. That said, it originally came out more than 10 years ago, and while some parts are timeless, some aspects of the game haven't exactly aged well. A "retry mission" button, a better map screen, and other minor tweaks hold this game back. Still, it's undoubtedly a classic and a must-play for any fan of video games. However, if you want a more refined GTA experience through the Mac App store, I'd recommend San Andreas. Also there's some sort of tinny sund that persists when I play the game with headphones. I've tried with multiple pairs and it keeps going no matter what.
Works great on a 2009 aluminum iMac with Lion - This game runs and looks better on my 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo iMac than it does on my Playstation 2. I'm using a real PS2 controller and a USB adapter. I also have the iOS version of the game, which allows the player to easily redo a failed mission and has an autosave function. Unfortunately this version is more like the old PC version, which has neither of those features. Still, the game is fantastic. I'd give it a fifth star if it were innovative though. For example, if savegame synchronization between PCs or with the iOS version were implemented. That would be impressive and give the player a great experience!
The game is good, some annoying minor issues though - I downloaded this vintage game recently and I am playing it on an iMac 5k. I really like the fact that you can play it in 5k resolution. However, the conversion has not been implemented perfectly: the waypoint dots on the maps are ridiculously small - so it’s almost impossible to find your way round. As they are still selling this for around 10 $ on here, I wish they’d fix such annoyances. Another issue is the gaming interface: the map, the weapon icons, all these elements appear in very low resolution - even when the rest is in 5k. This should be fixed as well - as you see these ugly interface items constantly. The sound is very poor, like other have already mentioned.That is indeed a drawback.
Cool ! - Great to have this game available for Mac ! Hey Rockstar, we want more from you for Mac !! I am waiting Manhunt !
