5.0 out of 5 stars GTA Vice City: a new era of gaming?, 26 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PS2) (Video Game)
Hawaiian shirts, fast cars, electro pop. All our dreams come true.
Kiss goodbye to your weekend and your job. You aren't going to need them anymore, because GTA is back, and it's bigger and better than ever. New this time is lead character Tommy Verciti; he's in trouble after a drug deal went sour, and stars in a rich and varied '80s gangster plot, played out between cinematic cut scenes and an all star voice cast.
You can tear around vice city to your hearts content, but the first missions form a training area for the uninitiated, or a refresher for grizzled GTA veterans. Once fully unlocked, there are a huge variety of districts to check out, including an airport, docklands, downtown, a beach and an army barracks. The increased use of boats, helicopters and planes offer refreshingly different game play.
Naturally, there are loads of guns and weapons for you to kick arse with, including [take a deep breath] brass knuckles, screwdrivers, hammers, truncheons, golf clubs, baseball bats, meat cleavers, katana swords, knifes, machetes, chainsaws, grenades, detonator bombs, C4, Molotov cocktails, teargas, colt 45's, colt python's, stubby shotguns, chrome shotguns, spaz12 shotguns, Tec 9's, 9mm Uzi's, Ingram Mac 10's, MP5's, Rugers, colt M4's, Rocket Launchers, M60's, Flamethrowers, Gattling guns, Sniper Rifles and PSG-1's. The cars are cool, corvettes, porches, mini vans, trucks, but it's the introduction of motorcycles that makes a difference. On dirt bikes, Harley Davidson's, pizza bikes, and PCJ 600's, you can pop wheelies, but warning; the handling is tight. Combined with the all-new cinematic "chase" cameras, makes for a top game in itself. Plot missions are varied, and include threatening shop owners, guarding over a mob deal, demolition, rescuing a friend, or just plain assassination. The variety of options means that it's truly difficult to get tired or frustrated. Using Action replay can bugger up your game, so be warned. The scope of the game is immense. GTA Vice City doesn't just blur the boundaries between videogames and popular culture, it decimates them.
