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.

Open world 80s Miami.Ho0pz4sho | April 28, 2015 | See all Ho0pz4sho's reviews »
This installment of Grand Theft Auto puts the player in the skin of Tommy Vercetti, a former mobster that has just been released from jail. The action takes place in Vice City, a town modded around real life Miami. Taking place in the 1980s, the game is actually inspired by gangster/mobster movies such as Scarface, Goodfellas and the popular TV-series Miami Vice. Keeping true to the GTA series theme, the game is a well thought parody/reenactment of some movie scenes, characters events and so on. There are many new additions to the game, such as new cars, new character models, new events and actions that a player can take during the game. Furthermore, the game is the first 3D installment to bring motorbikes and aircrafts into the equation, all of which are driveable. Another addition is the ability to purchase properties around the map. Each of these properties offers something new, such as a new hideout, a garage, cars, etc. Besides properties, players can also buy assets around town, which are buildings that generate income. As with previous installments, the game has an epic soundtrack, split in various radio stations. There's definitely a radio station for everyone's liking. A solid 92/100, and probably one of the best games of the long-lasting series.
Nostalgia :DMalkaLT | March 25, 2015 | See all MalkaLT's reviews »
So I bought this game here on sale, and I started playing it instantly. Until now I only played GTA SA and didn't play this game for years! But now it's really fun, lots of memories, things I really liked as a kid and it's very interesting to see same cars from GTA SA, here those cars are newer, but still older, game takes place in more modern times, but it's older. It's pretty messed up :D It's fun and amazing to see how good this game was, all the graphics, people in game, controls and all that other stuff, also it's from the time when music didn't suck, so you will enjoy that :D So as a GTA fan and since I spent most of my gaming in this game I will say that you must buy it now! It's on sale so why not, just take it, you will feel memories coming back to you and it will be amazing, grab it while you can :)
Miami in its old daysArmannn | March 24, 2015 | See all Armannn's reviews »
Many will say that this is the best GTA ever released. My personal opinion, however, is a bit different. I do like the game and it's been fun to play it whenever I wanted to do it. Sadly, the game lacks on the part of graphics (you can literally see "pink graphics" the whole time). I do know it's talk about Miami in the old days, but too much of one color doesn't make a game better even tho graphics don't make the game better/badder. The graphics can, luckily, be customized with the ENB Series mods, so I'd love to say thank God for that. I like how it's easy to mod the game and was modding the game for a pretty long while. The cheat codes (especially the one which you can use to make your vehicles driveable on water) are really fun sometimes and you can have some funny moments as the protagonist (Tommy) as well as other characters are not able to swim. Overall, it's a 88/100 from me. The game could have been better and not really "much work" has been put onto it (unlike the later games like San Andreas).
