Dear Android game developers: always use the Play Store for those massive extra downloads. Rockstar has got the message. They've returned the open-world classic Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to the Play Store after a few initial hiccups, and now there's no pokey downloads from outside sources. They've also fixed various bugs found in the original release, so fell free to shell out five bucks for a trip back to the 80s.

If you've never played Vice City (and you're 18 years or older) then you should. Many gamers, including yours truly, consider it the best entry in the series thus far. You're Tommy Vercetti, a mob man cooling his heels in Vice "totally not Miami, we swear" City. The additional features added to Grand Theft Auto's weapons, vehicles, and world- building make it a great experience, and anyone who actually lived through the 80s will appreciate the over-the-top humor. Ever driven a limo with a bomb and a quartet of boozed-up Scottish rockers in the back? Now you can.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City costs $4.99 and requires 1.5GB of free space on your device. Device compatibility is a little spotty at the moment; both my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 are supported, as is my ancient DROID X, but not my dusty old Incredible.

Thanks, Alex!
