Vice City, 1984. Opportunity abounds in a city emerging from the swamps, its growth fueled by the violent power struggle in a lucrative drugs trade. Construction is everywhere as a shining metropolis rises from foundations of crime and betrayal. As a soldier, Vic Vance has always protected his dysfunctional family, his country, himself. One bad decision later and that job is about to get much harder. Kicked out onto the streets of a city torn between glamour and gluttony, Vic is faced with a stark choice - build an empire or be crushed.



Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories is the highly anticipated portable prequel to the PlayStation 2 blockbuster.

Impressive graphic overhaul
Vice City Stories is a monumental improvement upon the previous Grand Theft Auto title on the PlayStation Portable. For one, the draw distance has nearly doubled so that buildings and features can be seen across town. Character models and cars are as detailed as if they were on the PlayStation 2 and include all of the shine and transparency that looked so great in other Grand Theft Auto titles. Players can even choose the clothing that Vic will wear in Vice City. Overall, Rockstar has substantially increased all visual elements so that you don't need to make any graphical sacrifices when taking Grand Theft Auto on the road.

Even the city appears as never before- people on the street will notice you and recognize you for the actions you've taken on previous missions. Some even comment about actions you've taken and give you an idea about how the public feels about your notoriety.

Expanded gameplay
New characters never before seen in Vice City add new twists to the story gamers were introduced to in the PlayStation 2 Vice City title. With a playtime of over 15 hours for the storyline alone, there is certainly plenty to see and hear in and around the city. Choose from various objectives to complete such as doing stunts for a chocolate commercial, chasing a known drug dealer to swipe his loot, and patrolling your neighborhood for specific thugs. Knock down objectives and get swept up in the plot or sit back and explore the big city- the choice is yours!

The hallmark style of "sandbox" gameplay is ever present and players can (forcefully) take control of nearly any vehicle they see and roam the streets in search of interesting characters and opportunities. In addition to cars, busses, bikes, and trucks, you can now cruise the waterways of Vice City in a large number of water craft! Jet-skis, motorboats, and even fishing vessels are there for the taking whether you're tracking the bad guy or just killing time. If you need even more mobility, consider one of the many arial options such as helicopters- helpful for taking out enemies from afar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vice City Stories: What a story! November 1, 2006
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As in my other video game reviews, you will find absolutely no spoilers here, so read on.

Rockstar once again have outdone themselves with their long-awaited title, but it was worth the wait! So, let's cut to the chase:

Graphics:

Awesome! This time around, you will actually tell a difference between night and day. When the night falls, you will see beautiful street lights and store signs all around you, resembling a Miami night filled with lights.

Controls:

Great news! If you played Liberty City Stories, you already know the controls, as they are unchanged. So keep playing where you left off, instead off spending hours learning the controls.

Gameplay:

What can I say...this time around, Rockstar took all the best features from previous titles and combined them here and then added some more. There is so much to do, but I will not spoil it, but believe me, you will be busy for a while. Here is a brief overview of some features:

Swimming: Don't worry about falling into water and dying by accident, just swim back to the shore!

Cops using motorcycles(this wasn't implemented in original Vice City game)

New Vehicles: Rockstar listened and included the most vehicles into a title than ever before, including water and flying vehicles.

Weapons: new weapons implemented, including a silencer add-on.

Annoyances Removed: When arrested or wasted, you can now pay a bit more to get your weapons back.

Revenues from your businesses/empires are deposited into your pocket right away at the end of the day! No more waiting a day and running to " $ " icon to get your payouts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of Fun and a Familiar Setting, I Love It November 1, 2006
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories is an enjoyable video game. If you don't have a Sony PSP and you are a fan of the Grand Theft Auto Series, you may want to pick up a PSP to play this game. Vice City Stories is an extension of the 2002 hit game Grand Theft Auto Vice City. The game takes place two years before the original Vice City with different lead characters. This time around you will be playing as Victor Vance. Vance is a military man, frustrated with his career looking to make a little extra cash. Surprisingly it's his supervisor Martinez who hooks him into making a little cash on the side via crime.

If you played and enjoyed Grand Theft Auto Vice City, you should like this game. Afterall, there is no place like home. The map is not identical to the first game but it's very similar. Some of the businesses you remember from the PS2 game have not yet been built but there are a lot of new businesses and the roads are slightly different in some area. There is also much more time spent on the military base near the airport, as your first save house is Vic's barracks on the base. For this game you start out on what is known as the second island. When driving along you hear the familiar message about bridges closed. Road blocks block access to the other island, but you can access Starfish Island from the beginning of the game.

The first few missions are simple enough. The main character Vic can swim for a short amount of time and the first mission has him swimming to shore and then delivering a package. The next mission you will be paying a visit to Phil Cassidy (a character from Grand Theft Auto Vice City), and helping him with some problem some people.

4.0 out of 5 stars In over his head in the 80s January 2, 2007
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Rock star could be credited with saving the PSP from the same fate that took the Sega Saturn and Dreamcast. Their hand held expansions of GTA 3 and Vice City push the portable media platform to its limits. With about sixty story missions and about three dozen side ones like empire building(the money earn from empire building gets dump directly into your account) and finding equine stunts and races. The player get to meet the germen transsexual Reni who DJ for Flashback FM in Liberty City, and Phil Collins makes an appearances as Phil Collins, and Gary Busey and Philip Thomas reprises his role as Phil Cassidy.

The Player takes the roll of Vic Vance, Lance Vance's older (brother who is killed off screen in Vice City) two years before Tommy Vercetti Comes in to the picture. Kicked out of the army for helping a crooked NCO Vic Vance has to swallow his pride and, along with his impulsive brother Lance, have to step in the back stabbing underworld of crime to support their family.

The game play is mirror to Liberty City's Stories, go from safe house to job, do the job go back to safe house, do a little exploring, not that there's anything wrong with it, the missions are fun and with the money from empire building money collected automatically, the player has access to choice weapons early in the game, easy to find Hidden packages, (In this game their balloons that you have to pop) help to build your arsenal without buying anything, and the cuts scenes are fun to watch. You get new vehicles like jet skies and hovercrafts.

There are some great characterizations in it too. Lance proves to be even more of a moron( one might think it was his stupidity that got Vic killed) , Vic tries to honey up to Phil Cassidy's younger sister. But the Character of Vic seems inconsistent.
