The game should be available on both iTunes as well as the Android Marketplace by the 12th of April 2012 and according to Rockstar, this port will be enhanced by HD visuals, better textures, Social Club Connectivity and awkward controls. Ok so the last part may have been made up but you'll forgive us for being cynical. As good as GTA III was, the control scheme on-foot just sucked making combat a complete chore. Considering the fact that Max Payne is all about combat, we only hope and pray the control scheme holds up this time.
