An impressive achievement!,
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories (PSP) (Video Game)
I'm a big fan of GTA and not only was GTA: Vice City the greatest in the series but it was also one of my favourite games of all time.
Then came along Vice City Stories. Put simply, it's a superb achievement and a fantastic game. How on earth can a PSP title look better then its PS2 counterpart? Well, whatever the reason, it is true. Vice City is now blur free, sharp and even pulls of a fantastic draw distance on the tiny machine. The game is a technical masterpiece, with short loading times in between each island and I could even turn my PSP onto sleep mode and come back to were I was exactly with less than a second load. The game plays just like any GTA and I had no problem adjusting to the PSP controls. The soundtrack is brilliant - another GTA triumph with some superb music with various genres and VCPR to supply the humour!
Why four stars? It would have grabbed all five except for the niggling technical faults (sometimes objects can appear in front of you, especially at speed) and general lack of anything that is really that new to GTA as a series.
