Written on: 12/11/2009 by The Tattonator (49 reviews written)

Probably one of the BEST GTA games ever made! Vice City is set in a beautiful location, great music and tons of extra missions and goodies.

There are also LOADS of vehicles (of all kinds), weapons, people, locations, etc. I like all the extra content and hidden sub-missions.

Graphics are OK but can be a bit jagged at times, but this doesn't spoil this superb game… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/04/2008 by Jennocide (1 review written)

The game is wonderful even up to this date. The music and the time period really make the game. Theres plenty of hilarious puns in the game, the vcpr and the kchat channels are hilarious. When it first came out I spent hours playing it without ever getting bored. Sometimes I still play it now. You can pretty much do anything, it's really rad.
Its fun and it won't disappoint if you haven't already played this game.
It's old but it's still entertaining… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/05/2007 by Cognition (90 reviews written)

It's fair to say that GTA Vice City is one of the best games to date on the Playstation 2, despite being quite old.

Vice City was the follow-up to GTA III - a game that set new standards and pushed the boundaries. It featured a very different graphical look, and had all new features such as motorbikes, helicopters and an aeroplane that you can actually fly (although I could fly GTA III's Dodo without any problems).

Upon its highly anticipated release, GTA Vice City sold out within the first… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/04/2006 by blobbym (3 reviews written)

Grand Theft Auto - Vice City, a very very good PS2 game second only to its follow up game "San Andreas". Tommy Verceti (your character) is a very suave guy who gets involved in all sorts of gangs and mishaps, so you have to get him out of them by doing the missions! Some missions are pretty hard but you'll get through them in the end… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/02/2005 by Large Chris (2 reviews written)

Grand Theft Auto - Vice City - I can't believe the fuss about this rubbish. The whole thing gives me a headache. The main issue is the ludicrous handling of all the cars which feel like pushing matchbox toys around on the carpet. Revs sorted this sort of thing out 20 years ago on the BBC B micro. The Getaway is a bit better (thought the sequel is a disgrace really)and more realistic in gameplay terms.
At least it is fairly open ended in design and you can do what you like, but it is so… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2006

I don't really see where this comes from, I've played this game to death and think the car handling is just as good as most dedicated driving games I've played. Obviously it's more simplistic than something like Grand Tourismo or something, mainly because there's not gears.
You have to master the handbrake button to fully appreciate it. There's nothing like taking a right angle corner at full tilt, tapping the handbrake to swing the back end right around.
Also, the completely different handling of the cars is really impressive, and I think pretty realistic. I would perservere with it some more, I think you'll get used to it.

Grand Theft Auto - Vice City - Please note - this is a non-game-playing girlfriend's review, so please don't tell me off for patronising women. I know lots really rock at games - but I can't and lots of my mates can't! But I do watch a lot of games being played.

This has got to be my most favourite PlayStation game ever. It is great fun to watch. My boyfriend, like my son, can play games (PC & PS) for England (bless them, they never grow up do they? They just get bigger!) So I have endured… Read Full Review

Joeybob's Response to raehippychick's Review

Written on: 06/11/2005

I personally think the game is based on Carlito's Way... First of all, at the beginning, he first returns after five years and his old friends from the smack business find out about it the same way as in the movie. Also, the lawyer may have been named SEAN PENN. He looks, acts, dresses all the same, and in Carlito's Way Penn is a lawyer too. Also in both the movie and the game, the lawyer is involved in drugs. Finally, the main characters in the game and in Carlito's Way end up having to kill all their old enemies and they are forced back into the crime life for a certain period of time. The endings are somewhat different but they have the same meaning: In the game, he lives happily ever after once all enemies were eliminated... In Carlito's Way, the main character dies at the end and is thus also relieved of all the pressure of the crime world.

Grand Theft Auto - Vice City is very good and a vast improvement upon the last. But still the people's costumes don't change!
Having said this I love flying, love the way you can earn money and especially love the rewards for hidden packages. The sparrow is sooo cool.
This belongs in any collection.

Written on: 03/05/2004 by VexedSnow5 (1 review written)

Grand Theft Auto - Vice City is great when you get one of the fastest and best controlling cars like the Banshee or the Cheetah. You can also get the army casing you and you steal a tank from them and kill everyone then put in lower wanted level cheat(R1,R1,cicle,R2,up,down,up,down,up,down) and it is like nothing ever happened and you still have all the policemen's guns and the tank. It is an upside like using the weapon cheat(R1, R2, L2, R1, left, down, right, up, left, down, down, left)… Read Full Review

The big point is that in this game you can absolutly move free and you can make what ever you want to do:
steal a car
make a mission

Grand Theft Auto - Vice City is easily the best of the series so far, both graphically, audio quality and in gameplay. The car handling is greatly improved on the previous game and the graphics of your character are improved. Increased number of weapons and the ability to chosen what weapon you want. A sword or a chainsaw, it's up to you… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/03/2004 by superpig (2 reviews written)

GTA Vice City is a great game and you probably know that. As a great improvement from GTA 3 is the weapons because they are now more, like the colt python, the Cain gun and of course everyone's favourite weapon the chainsaw. We now also have the chance to buy businesses and hide outs (rather than only getting three like on GTA 3) and even with this new option we still get given two hideouts that you can even enter as well. (Hint: buying a business is well worth it as they make money and access… Read Full Review

To be honest if the game was not called grand theft auto would you of still bought vice city. I think that Rockstar have let themselves down and i hope that the next GTA is a huge improvment. I would also like to say i do own a copy of the game and did enjoy playing it i don't want to take the buzz off GTA but i think they need to try harder if they want to keep there audience… Read Full Review

You've not really explained what it was about the game you didn't like. You've mentioned glitches, but what were they, and why did they spoil the game so much for you?

It is still a great game… Read Full Review
