Classic Vice City, Still GreatBlockAgent | Nov. 30, 2015 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
Having played Vice City on Playstation 2, I was excited to pick it up for PC. The graphics are sooo much better. The game plays just as good as I remember and looks so much better. This is still one of the best Grand Theft Auto games and is second to Grand Theft Auto 5 in my opinion. There was only one thing I didn't like about this version though. It does not natively support xbox 360 nor xbox one controllers. For those to work you have to download a hack and even then, the controller only works about 95% perfectly. Some buttons are in odd places and can't be reassigned. So if you are going to play this, you will probably end up just using a keyboard and mouse.
Back when GTA was pure funAussieSteve | Sept. 27, 2015 | See all AussieSteve's reviews »
Vice City is over the top, not to be taken seriously, fun. Before games, especially the GTA series got too serious and focused on realism. The voice acting is stellar, the characters feel real and alive. Sure, the graphics are dated, but stealing a tank and taking it for a joy ride is fun no matter how it looks! The soundtrack is pure 80s and the gam is bright, obnoxious and wickedly funny. A MUST play, even now. I don't get tired of this game

Best atmosphere of any GTA gameSoapmac72 | June 10, 2015 | See all Soapmac72's reviews »
Nothing beats the atmosphere of 80's Miami. The sun, the sand, the neon. The soundtrack is hailed by many as the best of GTA. The gameplay is as good as you'd expect from Grand Theft Auto. While there are many improvements over GTA III, such as buildings that can by entered and property that can be purchased, your character still cannot swim, leading to many deaths as you fail jumps. My personal favorite GTA.
A Game that Defined it's Generation of Gamingsycomantis1991 | May 16, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
Much like the third game, Vixen City is mechanically dated. Though it's still far above its predecessor. Better story, better voice acting, bigger world, and bigger arsenal. The controls and interactivity are still lacking comparatively, but it's still really fun nonetheless.
