Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - PC

FEATURED Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – PC

  • Return to the decade of big hair and pastel suits as you explore the massive urban sprawl of Vice City
  • Gorgeous graphics and a much larger game world — reflective surfaces, realistic shadows and buildings you can enter
  • Multilevel gaming environments and more challenging missions in the great non-linear GTA style
  • Gangs are much more intelligent in this game, and so are pedestrians – don’t worry, you’ve got all-new moves and weapons to face them with
  • There’s also a much wider selection vehicles — boats, motorcycles and more

Continuing in the theme and feel of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City offers the setting and feel of the early 80’s crime drama Miami Vice. Players may now play and carry out missions with in the setting of palm tree lined streets bustling with traffic, bikini babes, and pastel-color suits around every corner.

    So Much to Do, So Much Time to Do It, June 10, 2003
    By 
    Amanda (Maine) –

    This review is from: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – PC (CD-ROM)

    I don’t even know where to begin to tell you about GTA: Vice City. Do I begin with telling you how great the graphics are? Or do I tell you how much stuff there is to do here? Or do I tell you how freakin’ entertaining the whole thing is? There is so much to cover with this game that it would take me more than my 1,000 word limit to tell you everything, so you will have to settle for this:

    I will break it down in categories.

    GRAPHICS – The game is gorgeous. Remember how cool GTA3’s Liberty City was? Well Vice City is better – and prettier. You’ve got the sun shining, you’ve got the beach, you’ve got beautiful blue water, and you’ve got bright city lights at night. Oh yeah, and palm trees. These graphics will make you wish you were in Miami.

    SOUND/MUSIC – The game’s sound is great. The music…well, I’m not a huge 80s music fan, so I could live without most of the radio stations. I loved how in GTA3 all of the music was original, and I loved every one of the stations. However, every time I get into a car in Vice City, I usually find myself changing the station to KChat or the public radio. But hey, if you love Michael Jackson, Bryan Adams, Run DMC or even Ozzy Osbourne, you’re in luck because their songs are all featured in the game, along with a ton of others.

    GAMEPLAY/REPLAYABILITY – So what do you feel like doing? Do you feel like making the big bucks? Then follow the blip on your radar to the nearest head mission. Do you want to make a small amount of cash but try for a record (and get rewards, as well)? Then you can choose from the following: Ambulance missions, fire truck missions and vigilante missions go a little way to help you redeem your bad self, while giving you some quick cash. Other things you can do is deliver pizzas, drive a taxi, and deliver “ice cream” (this is only after you purchase the Ice Cream factory). Plus, there are tons of Rampage missions scattered all over the city. Once you make enough cash, you can start purchasing different properties around the city, which is convenient because every place you purchase gives you an extra saving area (whereas GTA3 only had 3 – one in each part of the city). Another thing you can do to make some cash is to participate in assorted events at The Stadium. For anyone who wants to know how to do this, go to the stadium when the game clock is close to 20:00. When the clock reaches that time, the Stadium’s doors will open up and when you enter the building, you are entered in whatever contest is going on that particular day. As for the main missions, there are a whole lot of them. I have noticed, at least so far, that these missions are a tad easier than the ones in GTA3. But I’m not complaining, since I never have finished GTA3 because I got so annoyed with it. Hopefully I will be able to finish this one, but I can guarantee that to get up to the full 100% is going to be mighty difficult, even if you finish all of the main missions. This is because there is just so much to do in this game. The replayability is extremely high, seeing as though the game is so open-ended. If you keep failing at a mission, you can just take some time off and do whatever your little bad boy heart pleases. This way, you can still play the game and accomplish stuff, even when you’re stuck on the main story. And by the way, the game’s cut scenes are some of the best I have ever seen – or heard. The “acting” is superb – maybe because they got a real actor (Ray Liotta) to do the voice of the main character.

    Okay, so what am I forgetting? Probably a lot. I will submit my review and then something else will come to mind that I will feel I should have added. But I’ve gone on for too long, so I will just wrap it up by saying this: I was hesitant to spend the big bucks on this game; I figured I would wait a few months for the price to drop. I based this hesitation on the fact that I own GTA3 and am extremely annoyed with it. But I was in a money spending mood, so I bought it regardless. I am so glad I did. This game is worth every cent you have to pay for it. It will provide you with hours and hours of enjoyment, and you will most likely become an addict. I know I have. In fact, I’m surprised I was able to tear myself away from it long enough to write this review.

    Warning This Game is “Extremely Addictive”, May 19, 2003
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – PC (CD-ROM)

    I just got gta3 vice city for the pc and I haven’t stopped playing it. And it is so much better than the last version of gta3. The addition of motorcycles and helicopters are simply awesome. The game runs alot smoother and no long freezes like it did in prior games. The graphics are amazing and the signs and stores fronts you can read perfectly. You need a great computer to run this baby. I’ve got a P4 2.2 Northwood and Geforce 3 graphics card.

    Becareful before you buy this game, because you will spend hours and days of your life playing it. You may lose your job, your wife, your friends, and flunk out of school, if you can’t tear yourself away from it. I would also advise that this game is not be purchased for kids under 15 due to its violent nature though.

    This is the best single player game I’ve ever bought. If they made vice city a multiplayer game it would be perfect. You can play this game for 100s of hours and it never gets boring. The missions are almost endless and keep you coming back for more. It teaches problem solving although in a criminal mind format. There are always several ways to complete a mission, which makes this game so unique.

    This game is a classic!

    Great Game, February 27, 2003

    This game expands the normal standard for the Grand Theft Auto series. Rockstar North has set the stage for games to come with the mastery of neon lighting in the beautifully lit Ocean Boulevard in the game, the hundreds of hotels and buildings. Ranging from the slums to the sights, Vice City is an ultimate getaway. When you want to take a break from the missions, and just relax, hop in your favorite sports car, jeep, or dune buggy, and take a cruise down the beachfront street. Then take a cruise down the beach, but be careful, there’s people lying down and walking around on the beach (this time around). Then, when you feel like a little bit of golfing action, head over to the links for some fun. No, you can’t play golf. But you can take a golf cart and drive around, then whack people with a club. The addition of the motorcycles (harleys, superbikes, mopeds, and dirtbikes) give this GTA a great edge. The helicopters add a great touch of fun and exhiliration, and none of this is to be found in GTA3. So my point is, if you want to lay back in a fantasy world, but can’t do it in real life, then get this game. If you want to go on shooting sprees and the likes, get this game. It’s everything you want. Practically a replication of real life.
