Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
gta vcs is not a bad game for it's year and it is a good game to play i know the graphics are not good but it is not like it's for ps3 or xbox360 it is worth that much money
i got the game and it was unusable
i had waited two days for it to ship when i got the game i checked to see its condition and it was horrible
WORST GTA EVER
when I played this game I thought it would be fun but it was lame. cheat codes were awful.missions were boring and very small map.this game is just awful.
Great, Long lasting game.
After being kicked out of the army, you travel Vice City doing different jobs for different people. And making money too. You will run an Empire that makes you money throughout the game as well.
Perfect sequel/prequel to the original Vice City!!
This is by far one of the best games in the GTA series, its basically just like the original Vice City but it plays the same as San Andreas!
WHILE VICE CITY IN MY OPINION IS BETTER THIS MAKES A GREAT PREQUEL FOR IT. THIS GOES UP TO THE BEGINING CUTSCENES OF VICE CITY. MY 3RD FAVORITE GTA GAME (1.VICE CITY,2.SAN ANDREAS)IS REALLY GOOD.
Great GTA remake of Vice city!!!
This game is pretty cool.But if you don't want to spend $15 on a old ps2 game then just get the original vice city for $5-$8.The graphics,gameplay,lasting appeal,and sound are great!I just bought it and think it was worth $15 but like I said just get the original if you want to spend less,I used store-credit so.... yeah.
This is a great game to play . The graphics aren't that good but still it is reallly fun to play ! Also it has good music .
GTA: VCS Graphics are Better, Not Great.
Vice City Stories is, again, a prequel, taking place a couple of years prior to the original game. You play as Vic Vance, the brother of central Vice City character Lance Vance. Vic's a strange fellow. When the game begins, he's just joined the army, and he gets off the transport truck at a military base in Vice City. Upon meeting his commanding officer--a borderline psychotic named Jerry Martinez--things start going wrong. We find out that Vic has joined the military to make some money to support his family, specifically his sick brother. But within the first few minutes of the game, you'll find yourself inexplicably picking up drugs for Martinez, killing gang members, and chauffeuring easy women.
Of course, any veteran of this series won't be shocked one bit by missions like these. The trouble here is that the setup for getting Vic into this mess is beyond flimsy. From the get-go, Vic talks about how uncomfortable he is with illegal activities, and yet he does every single illicit thing Martinez asks him to do. If you're someone who doesn't want to do anything illegal, and your boss starts asking you to pick up easy women and hide drugs for him, are you going to just gripe about it and then do it anyway? Not to mention that Vic seems completely willing to run into an apartment complex and start shooting gangsters without even being ordered specifically to do so. He just says, "I'll go get it" (referring to owed money stashed inside one of the apartments) and goes in guns blazing. GTA heroes are never heroes, exactly, but the trick in the past has been that there's been no attempt to play those characters up as sympathetic. They weren't boy scouts--they were gangsters, killers, and drug dealers. Vice City Stories tries to present Vic as a guy who doesn't want to get into that stuff, yet he freely and frequently does throughout the entire game. He mostly comes off as a hypocritical idiot.
Game play - This game was way better then I expected, and its a lot better then Liberty City Stories. There are a few features from San Andreas that are back in Vice City Stories, like swimming, bicycles, and planes/helicopters. There are also a lot of new items and weapons that were never in other GTA's, (e.g. binoculars, and crowbars). One bad thing about this game is it has a lot of glitches, but not as many as the PSP version. Another great thing about this game is the combat; there are a lot of new fighting moves, like grabbing people or snapping their necks.
Graphics - The graphics in this game are slightly better then in LCS, but since it was a game made for the PSP, the graphics are not as good as San Andreas. There are few things in VCS, that look more realistic, for example the fire that comes out of a gun once you fire it.
Sound - The sound in this game is very good. The gunshots sound realistic, also when punching someone it sounds better then in SA. The music in the game is good too.
Value - There are a lot of new side missions in this game to complete when you’re done with all the missions, (e.g. Air Ambulance and Beach Patrol). There are also 99 red balloons (in place of the regular 100 hidden packages) that you have to find and pop by shooting them.
Final Thought - The story is fun and interesting, although the story is not as long as San Andreas, there is still a lot more missions then in LCS, and they are longer, and have more variety. It might have been cool to leave in the multi-player for some two player split-screen fun, but you don't play Grand Theft Auto for multi-player. Overall, Vice City Stories is a good prequel to an excellent classic.
Great way to finish off the PS2 GTA's.
As a GTA player since GTA 3, I think this was a great way to finish off the legendary PS2 series. The story is about Vic Vance (Lance Vance's brother; who you either love or hate), a former soldier who got framed for having marijuana in his room. It makes a great prequel to one of the best video games of all time (Vice City), and instead of leaving the city how it was, they change it just the right amount where it feels like a whole different game. I would definitely recommend this game to a friend.
