Vice City on XBOX is a must-have title.,
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto Vice City- Double Pack (Xbox) (Video Game)
Now, Where to begin...Hmm I guess I should start with the
gameplay, since the graphics of all new titles get all better
and better, we should step aside of all that and focus a bit
on other aspects of today's games such as Gameplay and endurance in time.
Well Vice city is a very original game in terms of scenario and
it's implementation. There are not many games that give you the
freedom to be on the wrong side of the law and have a complete
freedom over a virtual town where you can kill or beat to death innocent people, steal markets, hijack cars, take on missions
about extortions, assasinations and anything else you could ever imagine. If you want you can make your living as a model citizen by driving a taxi or an ambulance or even work for the police, but all those are just minor sub-missions, a fine addition to the main missions but they wont take you far.
The real green is on the main missions and buying profitable
properties such as night clubs e.t.c.
The graphics of the game are excellent without loading delays e.t.c. The strong point of the game is the astonishing lightining effects. Hell, the game even incoporates realistic weather effects !!
The sound is even better. Realistic sound effects and great music in the form of radio music stations when you are in a car.
I Recommend this game to everyone that is fed up with the same ordinary fixed game types and looks for some originality.
I am very nitpicking when it comes to games and I am very difficult person to be satisfied and yet I highly recommend
this game without any hesitation.
If you have both consoles (PS2 / XBOX). Get it on XBOX. The load times are a lot faster, it gives you the freedom of custom soundtracks and also looks smooth and better.
