This review is from: Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto Vice City- Double Pack (Xbox) (Video Game)
GTA3>A Vice City have finally been released on the Xbox...over a year since us PS2 owners got our mits on it. The PS2 version is excellent and this is obviously going to be more 'polished' on the graphics front. But what's so much better? The slightly better graphics? Well it ought to be since it's 3 times more powerful. The ability to customise your own soundtrack? So what? The soundtrack on the original PS2 version was owesome. Anyway.
You play as Tommy Vercetti who has just got out of jail and is looking for a job. You do a variety of missions. Some which have no connection to the main storyline missions (for example the telephone missions). There are also side missions such as 'Vigilante' in which you chase after criminals in a police car or military vehicles (not mentioning specific names). Steal cars, motorbikes, and twist 'n go's (not mopeds as some people call them). Fly helicopters, drive boats. The game is packed!
Obviously Xbox owners will be jumping for joy as two of the games that made PS2 are coming to Xbox. I doubt very much if the Final Fantasy range will come to Xbox and Project Gotham 2 will not stand up to the likes of Gran Turismo 4. Also, online gaming is cheaper on PS2. No monthly fees apart from a broadband subscription.
So please PLEASE stop slagging off the PS2 as has done absolutely nothing wrong...and..look..it gave you Xbox owners polished and refined versions GTA3&Vice City in a double pack! Lastly, one question. If the Xbox is so much better than Playstation 2, then why haven't they made many good games? And don't say HALO!
