Welcome To The 1980's!
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.
Having just made it back onto the streets of Liberty City after a long
stretch inside, Tommy Vercetti is sent to Vice City by his old boss, Sonny
Forelli. But all does not go smoothly upon his arrival in the glamorous,
hedonistic metropolis of Vice City. Tommy is set up and loses everything. Sonny
wants his money back, but the biker gangs, Cuban gangsters, and corrupt
politicians stand in his way. Most of Vice City seems to want Tommy dead. His
only answer is to fight back and take over the city himself.

Adventure by Matthew Desmond
"...Vice City is one heck of a game. There are so many places to explore and
so many things to do that it'll leave the average gamer tickled pink..."
"The graphics in this game are spectacular.
Things that weren't in GTA3 are in Vice City. For example, as I cruise down the
street on my motorcycle (something that wasn't in GTA3), the sun glares down
into my eyes. This is something that definitely was not in GTA3..."
"Finally, the greatest selling point of Vice City is the radio stations in
the game. Everything you can listen to is authentic 80s music. And just about
every music genre from the 80s is present, New Wave, Hard Rock, Pop, and Easy
Listening just to name a few. It doesn't get any better when you're cruising
down the street grooving to some of your favorite tunes from the 80s..."

"And that's not all. In addition to the hundred or so hours you'll spend
with the missions and just wreaking havoc on the city streets, Grand Theft
Auto: Vice City includes all sorts of hidden special objectives. Its longevity
is a wonderful thing, since a sequel is still some time away, and this is one
game that you really don't want to stop playing. Even after you've gotten tired
of the carnage, it's fun to load it up and just cruise around Vice City
listening to the radio. You might not want to visit a place like this in real
life, but in computer game land, you'll never want to leave."
