I will break it down in categories.
GRAPHICS - The game is gorgeous. Remember how cool GTA3's Liberty City was? Well Vice City is better - and prettier. You've got the sun shining, you've got the beach, you've got beautiful blue water, and you've got bright city lights at night. Oh yeah, and palm trees. These graphics will make you wish you were in Miami.
SOUND/MUSIC - The game's sound is great. The music...well, I'm not a huge 80s music fan, so I could live without most of the radio stations. I loved how in GTA3 all of the music was original, and I loved every one of the stations. However, every time I get into a car in Vice City, I usually find myself changing the station to KChat or the public radio. But hey, if you love Michael Jackson, Bryan Adams, Run DMC or even Ozzy Osbourne, you're in luck because their songs are all featured in the game, along with a ton of others.
GAMEPLAY/REPLAYABILITY - So what do you feel like doing? Do you feel like making the big bucks? Then follow the blip on your radar to the nearest head mission. Do you want to make a small amount of cash but try for a record (and get rewards, as well)? Then you can choose from the following: Ambulance missions, fire truck missions and vigilante missions go a little way to help you redeem your bad self, while giving you some quick cash.Read more ›
Becareful before you buy this game, because you will spend hours and days of your life playing it. You may lose your job, your wife, your friends, and flunk out of school, if you can't tear yourself away from it. I would also advise that this game is not be purchased for kids under 15 due to its violent nature though.
This is the best single player game I've ever bought. If they made vice city a multiplayer game it would be perfect. You can play this game for 100s of hours and it never gets boring. The missions are almost endless and keep you coming back for more. It teaches problem solving although in a criminal mind format. There are always several ways to complete a mission, which makes this game so unique.
This game is a classic!
The missions are as fun as hell and although some are kinda challenging, they're usually worth it. After completing a series of missions, you can acquire property/businesses and start generating profits. I love the storyline and the fact that Tommy actually talks now... allowing you to gain power and respect. (You can also dress up in different outfits in accordance with your missions.)
Let's see... what else? OH! The graphics!! They're pretty sweet. The graphics are awesome (with the exception of a few of the characters during cut-in scenes) and I didn't have any problem running the game on my Win2k SP3, 1.2 Ghz Celeron machine with 384 meg ram and GeForce 4 Mx 420 (64 meg).
All in all, this is one of the best games out there with hours of gaming fun. Even if you have already completed the missions, you can have endless fun walking around and testing the power of your chainsaws, knives, or swords on other people. (It is addicting, though, so you might not want to start playing it if you have a lot of work to do.) If you're into games that let you do what you want, GET THIS GAME!
