General Comments
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 few days. This could have been down to the number of pre-ordered copies.

Now to talk a little about the game itself.

Things don't start well for Tommi. Upon his arrival to Vice City at the start of the game, he is set up and almost killed at the docks - this is to do with something drug related as I remember. (No surprises).

The first thing you'll notice is the style - how different the game feels from GTA III. Next there's the completely different setting - you now play in a city based on Miami rather than New York.

Well, there is plenty more to chose from - more cars, more weapons - even different outfits that you unlock throughout the game. Everything in Vice City seems that much bolder, brighter; and all together deeper than GTA III.

I suggest that you play the game for yourself without cheats (to begin with) to get the most out of this game. Pick a copy up for what has to be no more than £20 (well, this game is quite old now to be fair).
