Customer Review

on 12 November 2002
Everybody loved "Grand Theft Auto 3", right? Except maybe the Daily Mail. GTA3 was the ultimate in stress relief after a hard day at the office... simply boot it up, steal a car or break out the sniper rifle, and have fun. Vice City is a worthy sequel, make no mistake.
But I take issue with the notion that this game is bigger than GTA3: It really doesn't seem it. It has taken me just under a week to complete the entire game, and whereas GTA3 seemed to go on forever, Vice City sort of... stops.
Of course, thats if you're following the basic storyline. Small enhancements like being able to buy businesses (Ranging from a Porno Studio to an Ice Cream truck) and the extra missions that they give to you is a welcome addition, as is the extra police-dodging tactic of changing clothes when you're on the run. Then add the extra vehicles into the mix - especially the Bikes - and the challenge of getting 100% complete on this game, and you have a winner.
If that was all, this game would be very good. What makes it great is the whole feel of the game, aided greatly by easily the best soundtrack to a game, ever.
The 80's themed music is awesome, to say the least. Nearly all original songs spread across numerous radio stations... the first song that I heard upon stealing my first car in the game was "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson. There's nothing better than driving to a showdown with Grandmaster Flash's "The Message" blaring out through your speakers, or taking part in a drive-by as Spandau Ballet's "Gold" plays on.
Then add in the voice talent for the games well-defined characters: Ray Liotta, Luis Guzman, Dennis Hopper, Burt Reynolds, Lawrence Taylor, Tom Sizemore... to name a few.
I can't stress this enough: This game is the most fun you will have in a video game all year.
