Grand Theft Auto: Vice City review

Reviewed November 09, 2002

cheekylee says: "It was back in the days of the PlayStation that Rockstar Games first gave us a taste of the criminal lifestyle in Grand Theft Auto. For many, the game was just too controversial, while for some it lacked direction, and for others it was too graphically lacking. But quite a few people also loved the game because of the open ended nature of it. You could literally choose your own path through the game. At the time, this kind of freedom was almost unheard of. The game admittedly looked awful, but t..."

falsehead says: "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is set in 1986.

Reviewed September 03, 2003

jerec says: "Grand Theft Auto III was a fun game for many reasons: it let you kill indiscriminately, it let you drive like a maniac, and it let you have sex in your car with hookers. But it was the games’ freedom that captivated you, the fact you could do pretty much whatever you wanted, and as a result, you were forced to play until you achieved a 100% completion. GTA3 was a combination of structured missions and doing whatever you wanted (which was mostly random theft and violence). Whenever ..."

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City review

Reviewed January 17, 2005

radicaldreamer says: "When Grand Theft Auto III was released, the Grand Theft Auto series made a transition from niche product to mainstream. The follow-up, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, continues this, as it’s basically a slightly improved game with a lot of new content. Constantly I’m finding myself to be the voice of dissent these days, because let me tell you: while Vice City is a good game, it is not stellar. Both this game and its predecessor are impressive primarily because they are successful marriages of mult..."
