This review is from: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PC) (Video Game)
Great game, funny, violent and a huge gamescape to explore.
Why only three stars?
For PC gamers you will get frustrated by the lack of saves and when missions end, sometimes as cops appear to bust you out of the blue, you're back to square one. Running off to the lawyer's AGAIN, back at the hospital AGAIN, back at the police station AGAIN. Yes you can then explore another way to your target and kick a few pedestrians for fun, but really you want to move on.
I guess for all but the best dedicated gamers, this is frustrating and tiresome.
Plus there are problems using a mouse alone and a gamepad is recommended for driving. Driving and keeping your foot on the gas is difficult with the mouse, yet I couldn't get all the commands I needed with my Sidewinder for walking around. So ended up using both.
The soundtracks are fantastic and you can't help but smile as you drive around Vice City, going where you want, taking any car or bike you want from the streets, listening to some cheesy rock and eighties pop pumping out your speakers.
Recommended and a perfect transfer to PC. If only you could move a bit quicker from mission to mission.
