Ride through the world of crime

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is a premium action game that takes you back to the era of big hair and excess pastel suits. Set in the 1980s, this game features incredible depth and thrilling missions. If you love Grand Auto Theft III, then you are in for a treat with this game.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City takes everything you love about GTA III and makes it better. Set against the vibrant backdrop of a fictional city inspired by Miami, this installment pushes the boundaries of interactive entertainment as it introduces players to a narrative-driven experience with unparalleled freedom and a richly detailed world.

Explore a dynamic environment

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City relives the glory days of the 1980s. The game takes place on a fully developed island that lives and breathes like other Grand Theft Auto games before it. You can see cars drive up and down the streets, along with people walking around. It even has helicopters zipping overhead and boats plying by the water to further its immersive design. All elements of the game’s location are capable of a level of dynamic behaviors.

What’s more, the non-player characters — or NPCs — will react when you bumped into them either aggressively or politely, depending on their behavioral design. These characters will also respond the way real-life people do when you get violent with them. For instance, punching an NPC will result in them either fighting back or running away. Some might even pull out a weapon, which you can take when you defeat them in the fight.

However, it should be noted that the game is single-player only like most of its predecessors. Unlike GTA IV, which has a native multiplayer support, this installment requires modding that will allow you to play with other players. Another setback of this game is that it relies on older 3D models, which can break the immersion. Younger players are also advised against playing this game as it features mature themes such as violence and profanities.

Revealing an action-field story

GTA: Vice City revolves around the adventure of Tommy Vercetti, a former convict recently freed from the slammer. Despite having his sights set on making a fresh start, Tommy instead finds himself embroiled in a deadly web of deception and betrayal when a drug deal he's involved in goes horribly awry. He now has to contend with ruthless rival gangs, corrupt government officials, and even the occasional natural disaster while navigating the treacherous underworld of organized crime.

Along the way, Tommy builds a criminal empire through cunning strategies and brutal force — all while seeking revenge against those who wronged him. With its fast-paced gameplay, richly detailed environments, and a memorable cast of characters, GTA: Vice City delivers an unforgettable experience that will keep you coming back for more. So buckle up, grab your trusty firearm, and get ready to ride the wave of excess and violence that defines this neon-drenched city of sin.

Cars are still the heart of the game

As what the game series is known for, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will involve a lot of car driving. The game offers vehicular types to suit any taste. If you are looking for speed, there are lots of high-performance sports cars that you can steal to zip from crime to crime. There are also large family sedans and wagons, and even buses and trucks which are a lot slower but can resist more damage. 

But what fans would love about the game is the addition of motorcycles. This offers a faster and more nimble mode of transportation as it lets you flit in and out of tight traffic spots. You can also shoot enemies ahead of you which adds more thrill for the game's chase sequences. You can also try the helicopter which allows you to see across the game’s map. Moreover, the game will also call on you to take on boat races, boat theft, and boat destructions.

The GTA universe

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City takes place in the same universe as GTA III and GTA: San Andreas, collectively known as the 3D era. Although it was released after GTA III, this installment serves as the prequel if you were to play the series in chronological order. These parts, along with GTA III, also share the same characters and have some points of reference with the HD EraGTA IV and GTA V.

A superb installment

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City delivers an immersive journey to the vibrant 1980s, combining incredible depth and thrilling missions. It builds on the success of GTA III, offering a narrative-driven experience with unparalleled freedom. The dynamic environment, complete with interactive NPCs, adds to the game's realism, though it's worth noting that multiplayer requires modding. Despite relying on older 3D models, the action-packed story of Tommy Vercetti, diverse vehicles, and the heart-pounding car-centric gameplay make Vice City a memorable and engaging installment in the iconic series.

Welcome to the 1980s.

From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile as Grand Theft Auto returns.

Vice City is a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, and is the most varied, complete and alive digital city ever created. Combining non-linear gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and are given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.
