I played GTA: VC on PS2 and I bought this game on my new PC. Oh my, it is amazing. I'm sure this game is worth your money, it's only $4.99 right now, get it before too late. Also, this game is GTA: VC not Vice City Stories, just fyi. :)

This is a classic game with a classic storyline. The graphics are dated, but you can do a little mod work to fix that somewhat. Any GTA fan should play this game.

I use to own the PS2 version of the game. Since the flood of last summer in my area I lost almost all my old games. Playing this again has brought back old times. The graphics are indeed dated however, the modding community is very active in some areas with plenty of graphic improvements. I enjoyed the storyline, and the personality's of the characters. I just however wished it was longer. All in all , it is still a great game , and is sure to be a keeper!

Good game, however it comes with issues. If you are running into problems with the game not loading, you are probably using a modern PC and need to do some fixing before you can even enjoy the game. Here is how you fix the game not starting/mouse not working problems (Working on Windows 8.1):

In order to get the game to actually load you need to follow these steps, disabling DEP worked wonders for me as the game would crash before loading the first cut scene. Also, you may want to turn on frame limiting and turn render distance down. (You can turn these up later.) Here are the steps to making it load:

Go to the Control Panel System screen (Windows key + Pause/Break) --> Advanced System Settings --> Performance: Settings button --> Data Execution Prevention tab --> Select "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select:" --> Add: --> Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\grand theft auto vice city\ folder --> Select "gta-vc" (executable file) --> Open --> Apply --> OK (to close first window) --> OK (to close second window).

Now another problem I had was my mouse not working. This fix is very simple and only requires winrar. Go to www.mediafire /download/v6yyh6euo1da3vl/DINPUT8.rar (ADD ".com" WHERE THE SPACING IS)

This downloads "DINPUT8". Simply open the rar and drag the file into the games directory. To get to the games directory simply go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto Vice City" and drag it right there.

These fixed my problems and I hope it helps you too :)

Probably the best of the GTA games. Definitely my favorite.

Unlike the later games this one takes the player through a story instead of just dumping you in the middle of a huge map and loosely guiding you. This game is very coherent, each mission is directly tied into the story. So instead of having countless hours of mind-numbing missions about driving people around and robbing stores VC is more direct with the way the story is told. To me this is the biggest plus of this game over the newer GTA games.

Other than that Vice City is just another hit in the GTA franchise. The music, radio and voice acting are all top notch. The graphics and the cutscenes are obviously dated, to be honest they were never top of the line anyway, in any of the GTA games, but they're not ugly. The style is very consistent, the music, clothes, cars, buildings, etc, everything looks like it belongs, I've not noticed anything particularly jarring or game breaking in terms of graphics.

Ah, the 80s. The chest hair, the tacky suits, the Colombian men with anger issues. It's all back, and Vice City packages it perfectly. Even after nearly 12 years of being out, it is still fun, the radio is still entertaining, and the graphics don't look cheap. They do look dated, but they don't look like a three-year old made them using Microsoft Paint with a mouse so old it still has a roller ball on the bottom. They are sleek, and fit the game. The best part? Like I said, twelve years old. That means you can even run it on your excuse for a computer that you've been meaning to throw into traffic for years now!
