Product Description

Product Description

The biggest selling game EVER on the PS2 is coming to the PC and this version will have enhanced features including improved graphics and sound, additional PC controls, as well as several options for players to customize the game. From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile as Grand Theft Auto returns to the PC. Vice City is a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, and is the most varied, complete and alive digital city ever created. Combining non-linear gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and are given the opportunity to take it over as you choose. Game Features Review

There can't be any more sure-fire a hit in the gaming world than Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Grandma may not approve, but the 143 million people who bought GTA III will be chomping at the bit for this PC version of the PS2 follow-up. Not quite a full-blown sequel, but far more than the average lazy mission disk, Vice City relocates the action of the previous game from the New York-esque Liberty City to the Miami-influenced metropolis of the title. Clearly as soon as someone mentioned Miami the developers immediately thought of Miami Vice, because they've gone and set the whole thing in 1986 with an incredible soundtrack featuring everyone from Michael Jackson to Sigue Sigue Sputnik.

As the game starts you take control of Tommy Vercetti (voiced by Goodfellas star Ray Liotta) who gets involved in a bungled drug deal and must set himself up from scratch as a crime boss. Unlike in GTA III, you're not restricted to being a small-time hood any more; the game now allows you to purchase property (porn studios, strip clubs, cab companies and so on) and run extortion rackets. This cleverly widens the scope of the game while keeping the controls and gameplay pretty much the same. It also means that you still spend the majority of your time driving cars very dangerously and shooting and maiming anyone that happens to get in your way. Indeed, in most respects the game is very similar to its predecessor--the graphics, for example, are improved but hardly ground-breaking--though there are numerous minor additions, most notably the chance to ride motorbikes--which is particularly satisfying--and fly proper aircraft.

Vice City can't be recommended unreservedly though: if you're intending to buy this game for someone under 18, you really should think again, as it's violent, filled with sex and swearing, and is totally and utterly immoral--which is why it's guaranteed to sell and sell. --David Jenkins

I thought the incredibly buggy GTA3 on PC was pretty good, but this... well, I didn't expect much from it. How could I be so wrong?
Don't expect a huge departure from the previous game in terms of gameplay if you've played GTA3 before, but if you haven't played it then invest your money into this instead. The graphics issues have totally dissapeared, so it runs smooth as silk, the city is bigger and the detail within it is just so much more... High above planes pass over leaving trails, more hilarious antics occur within the population, trees bend in hurricane winds... too much to mention. The draw distance is just unbelievable...
Plus, there's just so much to do! You get the opportunity to drive around in bikes and fly this time around, which is excellent, although if you want to enjoy it further I'd suggest you buy a joypad. Especially to fly the helicopters - on a keyboard its just far too complicated and you will be screaming in frustration as you crash for the nth time.
If GTA:VC was a word in the dictionary, it would be "fun". Pure and simple.

Brilliant game with masses of variation - so much to do it's unbelievable...
The missions in this game are well and varied, from sniper rifle assasinations to bomb-laden r/c helicopters attacking buildings, to getaway's all in here.
However, the rare times when you get bored with a difficult mission and go off to cause carnage are the real fun bits - wheelying motorbikes at top speed along the runway of the airport (and weaving through a landing Jumbo's wheels) is awesome...especially while hanging off the side of your bike chewing passer-bys up with your Uzi...
The police are very stupid (so, the AI could be arguably described as realistic!), gang members will chase and return fire if you shoot at them, cute women in bikinis run away crying if you pull them off their scooters and there's nothing more satisfying than jumping on the bonnet of a Ferrari and blowing the driver's head off with a Magnum through the windscreen...
Then, when you start earning serious money, you can buy venues. Strip joints (complete with lap dancers), nightclubs (complete with bad '80s style rollerblade dancers), helipads (with FLYABLE helicopters!), boat yards (with driveable boats), all can be bought with the money earned by your dirty work. And there are so many more hidden missions to complete it's they managed to get such a huge, interesting game into such a small box mystifies me...
If your PC will handle it (mine does, no probs, and mine's hardly top-of-the-range) then you really need to buy this game. The money you'll spend on it will be totally reimbursed by the money saved due to the complete death of your social life...
Best PC game ever...ever...ever...

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is a brilliant follow up to the legendary Grand Theft Auto 3, which stole several weeks of my life when it was released.
Vice City is fundamentally very similar to GTA3, and certainly all the best elements remain. For a start, you are as free to roam as ever - simply carjack a nice ride, find a gun, and go on a rampage. Or have a drive around the city, and see some of the sights, visit a strip club, jump in a boat, helicopter or motorcycle and just look for all the opportunities for bad behaviour that the game has to offer. The graphics are similar if somewhat refined, and the game has the same look as GTA3, although there is more variety and detail in the buildings, vehicles and scenery. As before, the city is full of vunerable pedestrians, simply crying out to be robbed or run over, and they come in a greater number of shapes, sizes, and dress than ever before, and have more to say for themselves.
As far as missions go, Vice City boasts a far greater number of them, and they take in a great variety of locations, use a large number of the approximately 100 vehicles in the game, and are at times much more involved than in GTA3. There are many more people to work for, too, although the basic progression through the game remains, with areas of the map, and new employers becoming available as you make a name for yourself and complete certain missions. Overall, there are just more things to discover in Vice City, and this is where it really wins out over it's predecessor - there are more weapons, vehicles, buildings to explore, interesting characters, story missions, side missions, and things to do between missions, and they are all spread over a larger and more varied city.

Finally, the latest game in the Grand Theft Auto series is on the PC. Having played all of the previous games I was disappointed that I had to wait so long after GTA3 for Vice City, however some things can’t be rushed and thankfully Rockstar games seem to agree.
In Vice City you play Tommy Vercetti, a man who is not shy to indulging in a bit of crime. Having spent 15 years in Liberty City jail he has been sent to Vice City to head up a new section of the Mob. Things don’t go too well though as during the first deal he loses millions and the coke which he was meant to collect. Now, with his boss on his tail he has to recover the money and get some revenge.
Vice City starts off similar to GTA3, you have your hideout, where you can save the game and various points around the city you have to get to get a job. What the job is depends on the client and those crazy people at Rockstar who think these things up.
In Vice City they have made things a little harder from the off. For example it does not take too long before you’re into gun fights and end up blowing things up. A good example is a mission where you demolish a building, and it’s no tiny one either. Using a remote control helicopter you have to plant 4 time bombs in certain places in the building to help it collapse. Once you have done that, the building explodes, collapses and the mission is over.
Missions do vary a lot and amongst the hard one you can pick up some very easy ones that help your rank and allow you to advance a little further in the game.
The layout of Vice City is a little like GTA3. You have various islands, which make up the city, but you only have access to one.
