Top 50 Title:


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.

Reviews for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City


First of all, I want to say this game is the reason I am a PC gamer. Vice City is based on Miami, which was a major cocaine trans-shipment point for South America at the time. This is further reinforced with its theme of the drug business and crime, as well as the presence of new upper-class businesses and residents in the city, with some of them likely to be funded by the drug business. Vice City is specifically located within the state of Florida. The game seems to keep the '80s atmosphere, which is a very important thing. Tommy Vercetti is the most Vice City badass protagonist, which is ready to kill and destroy in order to become a leader. Everything is great about this game. The vehicles, the missions, the atmosphere, the weather... and so on. I could tell you a lot more things, but I don't waste your time anymore, and tell you directly: Buy this now, and enjoy playing a REALLY GOOD game.

Classic Vice City, Still Great

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 fun

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

no wonder to be a vice city fan

i have played this game for like 100 times but never get bored since my child hood it made me to play several hours and those were the thrilling hours i have been with every day at school i used to wait to get home and play as fast as i can and make my day good one

Best atmosphere of any GTA game

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.
