Gameloft’s 3D GTA-like open-world iPhone and iPod touch game, Gangstar: West Coast Hustle, is now available in the App Store.  That certainly didn’t take very long.

gangstar_screenGangstar: West Coast Hustle finally brings full-3D GTA-like gameplay to the iPhone, and it’s about time because we certainly have enough 2D GTA-like games in the App Store.

The game offers a total of 50 different missions that you can choose to complete at your own pace.  You can explore the open-world environment by stealing cars or just going on-foot.  Your character is controlled via an on-screen joystick, and vehicles are controlled via on-screen pedals while also using the accelerometer for steering.  Shooting is just as easy thanks to an auto-aiming system.

Though the game sports some solid looking 3D graphics, it still apparently supports all of Apple’s mobile devices, and the icing on the cake is that it doesn’t even require iPhone OS 3.0.  It will be interesting to see how these older devices perform, so if you end up giving his one a try on your first-gen device, tell us what you think.

Gangstar: West Coast Hustle is available immediately in the App Store for $6.99.
