Description

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.

One of the classics in the action and Grand Theft auto series

That's the oldest game in the Theft auto series. I played it when it came out and i had so much fun with it! Especially with the codes i used which i still remember some of them,heh, you can choose to play the game as sandbox - open world,or follow the main story and the quests. I have finished the game and trust me it's worth it following the main story. You can drive a boat, you can kill people, you can make the police to chase you, make stunts, you can use bazooka, and just do whatever it comes out to your mind. The graphics are good for such a game, the characters are well drown, the car movement is very good, I liked it, it's not a wooden controlling of the car where you can often see in such a games.

This was my first grand theft auto I ever played. I remember playing this when i was in the seventh grade and I knew I wanted it. I never could afford consoles so I waited and saved up money for a laptop and I finally got this game with GTA 4 and 3 in a collection. I ignored the other two games and played vice city for a long time. I recommend this game to anyone who loves open world games. 10/10

A timeless classic

In my eyes, this is the best GTA.

It's an incredibly well-made game with an authentic feeling 80s atmosphere. There's a lot of attention to detail, especially for a game of it's time. There's so many references to things from the 80s: the TV shows, brands, music. Music is probably one of the best parts of this game, I mean, the radio stations are truly amazing and I do mean each and every one of them.

What initially surprised me (on the first playthrough) was how engaging the story was. I was blown away, truly! This is probably why the game has as much replay value as it does. After having recently finished the game for the 6th time, I can say that I'm definitely going to come back to it again. All in all, great game. If you haven't for some reason picked it up yet, I highly recommend it.

This game is a blast.

The Supreme Game

I will begin by saying that I have played all of the 3D GTA games and I loved them all, but this one surely was my favorite and I finished it about 5 times without feeling bored once.

This game is 12 years old, yes, that's over a decade, but the experience is still epic and everything about this game is spectacular.

I absolutely love the missions, ALL of them and the city feels exactly like Miami in the 80s. And there are so many thing to do out there, it's a true open-world game.

Oh, and I had almost forgotten. The radio, no GTA to date has managed to beat it, I for one would spend hours in the car, listening to the great radio shows and music that are better than the ones broadcast by real-life radio.

This game is a must have and my favorite game of all-time.

a pure classic

probably one of the most enjoyable GTA games i have ever played. i still have the original disks that i jacked from my brother back in the day. it was also one of the only games i had for the pc for the longest time growing up so i have played this A LOT. the graphics were great for its time ad even today some of the player models and even the cut-scenes are great. the controls are a little weird for me still and i found it better to use an external program to bind my controller.

the game is small and boots fast, which is nice for under powered PC's. i remember playing this on a laptop over 10 years ago (which was a feat in itself).

overall i love this game, the missions are diverse an actually hard, but at the same time you can lose yourself for hours just driving around causing chaos.
