Game Review: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City


After playing my friend CJ's copy of GTAIII I knew I wanted to get GTA Vice City! GTAIII's open world was amazing, escaping the fuzz using the L, Chatterbox radio with Lazlo! Ahh fun times not to mention all the killing and trying to get 6 star wanted and surviving as long as possible!
GTA Vice City takes te same game engine from GTAIII and amps up just about every aspect, more cars bigger map, celebrity voice actors: Ray Liotta, Tom Sizemore, Burt Reynolds, Dennis Hopper and Jenna Jameson , More "real" music like Twisted SisterMötley Crüe, Quiet Riot, The Cult, Ozzy Osbourne Iron Maiden, Michael Jackson,Laura Brannigan, Wang Chung, INXS, Bryan Addams, The Fixx and so much more!
 And Lazlo is back on V-Rock baby!,
Vice city adds the ability to buy properties or "assets" which unlock addition missions and help build your wealth in Vice City. Vice city also offers plenty of "side missions" taxi driver returns, also there's firefighter, ambulance and police side missions too.
This game is from start to finish a huge homage to the 80's culture, the clubs, the music, the movies and TV.
The game's story feels like your playing a Miami Vice-Scarface-tini...and it's delicious!
GTAIII was revolutionary for gaming! As for Vice City.....wish you were here ;)
