Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
5 Star Review  GameZone - Nov 10, 2002

When it made its debut a long while back on the PSOne, the gaming community never really paid close attention to the Grand Theft Auto series until the third installment was released for the PS2. With a massive following, Grand Theft Auto 3 managed to hook gamers in with its huge city where you can go anywhere, kill anyone and steal any car that just happens to catch your eye--and to top it all off, the game was just too much fun to put down. So you can imagine the anticipation of PS2 owners everywhere when Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was announced. Guess what, fellow carjackers, the hour has come.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (ps2)
5 Star Review  GameSpy - Nov 5, 2002

In 2001, Rockstar Games shook up the gaming world as forcefully as Muhammad Ali shook up the boxing world in 1964. Its Grand Theft Auto III served up an experience that gamers never imagined they could have. Its open-ended gameplay and living world gave players a new sense of freedom that raised the bar for games. Furthermore it was the first game to offer mature content with compelling and original gameplay. In short, it was a landmark title that changed the perception of what a game could be. Roughly one year later, Rockstar returns for an encore. While more of an update than a true sequel, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City serves up a broader, deeper, and more addictive version of the brilliance found in its predecessor. And while it isn't quite perfect and the graphics show some age, it's clearly one of the best games released in 2002.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (ps2)
5 Star Review  IGN.com - Oct 28, 2002

I've been reminiscing about the past recently. Last year's onslaught of AAA games had us staggering with delight -- and exhaustion -- when the year finally came to a close. In comparison, this year’s lineup of games, well, it initially looked stunning, before the delays, anyway. But now it's clear what 2002 is all about. Like a co-worker of mine said a few weeks ago, there’s Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and there’s everything else. The biggest, most anticipated game of 2002 is upon us. A large population of the gaming public has come to a halt as Rockstar North has slaved away to finish the second massive Grand Theft Auto game just one year after GTAIII lit the videogame world on fire. And now it’s here. It’s finally here.

Strengths: it's a very fun free roaming game, with good game play, not complacated

Weakness: it sometimes gets a lil' glitchy but rarely, ok graphics,

this is game where you can choose what to do with complete freedom(which i LOVE about it)you follow the storyline or just run around and have fun killin' stealin' and drivin' around Vice City,Flordia,the story will remind you of scarface. overall i love this game,because of the fact of its freedom you can play it over and over again.

5 Star Review   By member JustinC29615 - Apr 8, 2004   

Strengths: Great game, incredible story, felt like i was playing scarface. so much extra stuff to do, when you bored you can just go rampage so much fun

Weakness: None, i have xbox version!! virtualy no load time :-D

PEOPLE!!! if you worried about kids immitating the language/innuendo. then you should be much more worried about kids going out and jacking cars, shooting cops, or having sex with hookers when they are low on health :) The game is not meant for kids. kids should not play it, dont buy it for them. if they are mature enough to play it good for them. but dont complain about language/ or sexual "innuendo" when there is murder, stealing, drugs, etc etc

5 Star Review   By member Dragoon89 - Dec 23, 2003   

Strengths: This game is awesome as h*ll.

Weakness: Once your done with the story all you can do is kill people. Oh wait, that's what's so f*cking good about it.

If you don't already own this game there is something wrong with you. This game is the poster child for every violent game out there. Stealing cars, killing innocent people, drug dealing, pickin up hookers, going to strip clubs, what can't you love about this game?

5 Star Review   By member hayesmi1 - Nov 11, 2003   

Strengths: Fun game, good music, improved over original

Weakness: Doesn't max out graphics, although good.

Very good game, adds 80's theme and many funny style aspects to original. They got rid of the trippy graphics effect, even though now I've got a card that could support it. Cars also disappear if you turn your back on them, but overall it's more fun. Improved water, boat, helicopter, and plane usage. Good plot. If you think I work for Rockstar, read my review of Max Payne 2 (not worth the money).

5 Star Review   By member Widowmaker_X - Aug 18, 2003   

Strengths: A great game, with so much to do it never gets old.

Weakness: needs better graphics and aming can sometimes be a problem

A must buy game if you own a PS2. Can do so much and if you use game codes it can make the game so much fun. Between running over old ladies and picking up hookers, this game is one of PS2's greatest games.

Strengths: I rented this game, and im telling you within a few more days im buying it!! Cars, bikes, weapons, gangs, girls, soundtrack...the list goes on!!! Everything is great about this game!

Weakness: Basicly nothing. A few times it froze, but who cares, (every game has aglitch or 2)

This game was awesome! Make this the first game you buy on your ps2! Theirs loads a mission and cool stunts to do on ur bike! Jumps are everywhere, and the ralism of people dieing in quite amazing! The only dumb fact is the ambulance reviving the dead people; 2 seconds late their alive! Also i park my motor bike for one second 2 do something and some little prick stole it!! But other then those, buy this game!

Strengths: grand theft auto vice city is perfect because of all of the weapons,citys,cars and of corse all the peoples different not to mention it's good graphies,sound and mind blowing action

i would like to tell the people more about the game if they havent gotten farther in the game but i would like to discuse the probelms with someone from rockstar games anthony rice

Strengths: It has lots of cars, motorcycles, and helecoptors

5 Star Review   By member ripduck8902 - May 20, 2003   

Strengths: The whole game is great. I got it the day it came out and I've been glued to it ever since, even after I beat 89% of the game.

Weakness: Nothing except for when you have felony, the police ram you. I think you should be able to pull over and pay $200 instead of the police "busting" you and you have to pay $1000.

All in all, the game is great. The missions are really fun and most are challenging. There are a ton of vehicles, such as tanks, army trucks, FBI vehicles, and extremely fast sports cars. I would definetly recomend it to people who like fast pace action games and/or shooting games. BUY IT!!!

Strengths: Good color and shade of background features.

Weakness: The appearance of people is very painful to see.

Excellent gameplay and background color. The game is astonishing but the people could be a little bit more realistic. Despite that fact I enjoyed the game. I would highly recommend everyone to purchase this game.

4 Star Review   By member jnations - Apr 3, 2003   

Strengths: Good music (80's fan); great control over vehicles and movement; good graphics & realistic response from interactive environment.

Weakness: TAKES TOO LONG TO LOAD; People graphics are not very detailed. Hands, faces, etc. could be more realistic; foul language/sexual inuendo.

This is a great game and I have only two (2) serious complaints about it. #1 is the amount of time it takes to load on the PS2. #2 is the foul language and sexual innuendo in the game. I don't believe this type of content enhances game play at all. I would like to be able to play this with my children but I don't want them hearing these things. I realize it is rated -M- but surely the manufacturer knows that children are going to be purchasing and playing this game. Provide an option to make it PG - giving the option of turning off the language, etc.

5 Star Review   By member DVOL - Mar 18, 2003   

Strengths: This game is yet so far one of the best games ever for the PS2,excellent graphics,mission's,cars,girl's,weapons etc.

Weakness: wish you could go in more stores and clubs,and in the cinematic graphics the hands need a little work but other that that everything's great.

this game is great and alot of fun i really recommend it to everybody.and i would just like to take some time and tell MRS. IMAROSEBUD,FROM AR: Ratings have a purpose! it's right at the bottom right corner(stupid) this game is rated M for MATURE audience not for 13 year old kid's.

5 Star Review   By member PickleDill - Jan 18, 2003   

Strengths: The weapons and extra fun things to do are sweet and graphics are awesome.Great plot in the 80's with a drop dead soundtrack.A fun and addictive(good addiction)game overall.

Weakness: Just a few little things like having to do a mission against a few dozen hitman with sub-machine guns.It is hard in some parts but you'll be too addicted to stop and quit.If you have cheats its easy.

It is a good,no great game all around with very little weaknesses.A very good plot and soundtrack and graphics.Very good gameplay.Great game!Tons of fun missions and extra things to do like sell some drugs from a ice cream truck or blowing up or foe in the taxi business's cars. Many new cars,helicopters,seaplanes,mopeads,dirtbikes,motorbikes,army helicopters,and boats.Have fun driving around town,catching some waves,flying from island to island,felling the great Florida wind in your hair,drive to your mansion, or just walk around and beat up people for money.

5 Star Review   By member Dreaver - Dec 25, 2002   

Strengths: EVERYTHING! This game rules, I gave found very few flaws. The weapons are cool the targeting system is great and the cheats are easy to memorize. I would easly pay $70 for this game, if i had it!

Weakness: The only two weaknesses are: A:Ditching, sometimes it just doesn't let you, and the graphic is kida off. and B: When people give you weapons, it forces you to take them, even if you have better ones.

This game is the best for people who either hate cops, or just like to kill people and blow sh*t up. While the missions are somewhat easy, they are fun, and Tommy has some of the best one-liners. Like when you do the mission, "Four Iron", for Avery, when he steps out of Jock Shop...."Is this me?" "Nice as$ baby!" I laughed really hard when i first heard that. Diaz is a laugh riot, too. "What do you think your doing!?" The whole game could keep me occupied for months on end. Great Buy!

The game is so much better than GTA3. There is lots more stuff to do. Love riden the motorcycles, bigger citys and more people. The cars look great too. I recomend it and i dont like this crap about how it influences children. parents should stop blaming games and music and take responsability for kids actions. GO OUT BUY IT!! HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4 Star Review   By member assassin01 - Dec 20, 2002   

Strengths: way more weapons,jackable cars,boats,planes,coppters,50 interrior locations to go in. graphics gameplay ect.

Weakness: bugs and glitches.

this game rocks with its great graphics and gameplay......this is a game every PS2 owner should have. it beats gta3 40 vehicle roster. it has 100+ vehicles and motorcycle. AI is alot more complex. so are missions. 11 Actors doing voice's for the characters. you cant compare gta3 to vc because gta:vc is way better. 15 weapons before now theres 40. hello gamers pick up a copy of this game if you are a true gamer. sure it has its bugs and glitches but overall its a great game.

Strengths: motobikes and lots of boats and helis you can even own a house

Weakness: way to many charactars

There is a endless slectoin of thing, to do even as soon as u stat the game check out the cars, motobikes ,listen to the radio ,collect the hidden pacgages on the first island and do some missions. After you have got accses to all the islands you can get boats helis and even a milltery helis after 100 hidden pacages or after the last mission. Also no more locked dors get them clean of the hinges with the chinsaw.

4 Star Review   By member Sassylassy74 - Nov 19, 2002   

Strengths: Very realistic. Great graphics. Get to choose more then one mission so you won't be board. always something to do even if you just run around the city. Rockstar Games did a fantastic job.

Weakness: Have to run all over the city to save after each mission

Lots of action. You'll never get board playing. If you like the 80's motif, you'll like this. The music is great. However, I would not recommend this to children, too graphic, too sexually explicit, and too violent. Definitely for more mature game lovers.

5 Star Review   By member dwood1999 - Nov 7, 2002   

Strengths: Great missions, good music, cool actors, great characters

Weakness: Have to run around the city to save your game.

This game is more fun than GTA3, the missions are much more fun. The animation, and the game play are great. This game is big and there is so much you can do in this game even if you are just goofing off.

5 Star Review   By member tgdjlm - Nov 6, 2002   

Strengths: Very smooth game play, real world driving, a lot more options, heck you can even drive motorcycles & golf carts. Can we say "Say Hallo To My Littla Friend." Quoted by: Toni Montana

Weakness: Notice some bugs, nothing major. "Like your driving, then water appears, then the road re-appears. Only happened once so far."

"The other is that when you go to the Country Club, you can not bring weapons in, but a Chainsaw is Ok. LOL Uh, was that a little hint." :) Over All Great Game & worth the money. To the other bozo whining about the Language & Sexual Content. Get a clue! 1. That's why it says MATURE. Second, I'll let you in a little secret, your kids know more offensive words & sexual positions that perhaps YOU! Third, don't like the hardcore games or offensive material, then sell your PS2, XBOX, Computer & get a GameCuBe & play Monkey Ball you flake! I'm sick & tired of listening to people blaming Games & music for kids actions. Loony Tunes is still the most violent cartoon to date & is still being aired. Bombs, smoking, guns, swearing, drinking, stealing, robbing, jumping from tall building & cliffs, etc.. You son't see me robbing a bank & blowing up my friends. Let's stop pointing the finger at others & start taking responsibility for OUR & OUR kids actions.

2 Star Review   By member imarosebud - Nov 5, 2002   

Strengths: grand theft auto is getting worse everytime a new one comes out I realize a lot of folks can't do without all the cursing and sexual crap but...please remember kids love inappropriate stuff too!

Weakness: language...sexual references

My grandson is 13 years old and loves grand theft auto he has played it with friends I have a problem with the game and will not allow him to buy it because of the language and sexual references in it...I wish you could come up with a fun game that left out some of these offenses! Most games that are fun to kids are not really good influences!

5 Star Review   By member bporter71 - Nov 2, 2002   

Strengths: Graphics, music, a great follow up to GTA III

I love 80's music, so this game is great right out of the gate. It plays as good as, if not better than GTA 3. The best part is that I bought it on Tuesday night before the Oct. 30th release date from Best Buy for only $39.99 They're sold out now, imagine that, but I'm hooked up! I recommend this game to anyone serious about gaming. Of course if you've played the previous GTA, then I need not explain. Have fun!

5 Star Review   By member gtavicecity - Oct 13, 2002   

Strengths: There is so much more you can do. There is more details than GTA3.

This game is the bomb you can do everything on it you can get motorcycles and cars that go 100mph. You can actually go into buildings and you can rob stores. The graphics are basically the same as GTA3. You also can get more weapons like gas chain saw screwdriver etc... There is more jumps out on the water and they also have side missions like deliever pizza and things like that. There is a better selection of cars like you can get the Mustang and other cars (thats for you to find out when you get it.)

5 Star Review   By member ViceJon - Aug 30, 2002   

Strengths: Let me put it this way. You can jack a heli land it on a 50 story building and snipe people below.

Weakness: nothing at all. rockstar north left nothing out.

Vice City will be Twice the size of gta3's Liberty City. All of the city of vice will be open from the start. Unlike number 3. The car count has been raised from 40 to 100+. On that roster expect to see some lamborghini clones. Also the weapon count has been raised from 15 to 40. On the weapon list there are things like Philips screwdrivers and gas chain saws. I couldn't beleive my eyes. Motorcycles play a big roll in vice city. For those Dodo lovers out there if you thought the dodo was hard to fly there is a new challenge for you, try pop'n some riding wheeles. Ok lets talk about the Helichopter. Yes the helichopter is intended for players to fly. Yes there is also a real plane. It is called the SKIMMER. It has pontoons so you can land on the water. In Vice City there are alot more boats including SAILBOATS,SPEED BOATS FISHING BOATS, AND POLICE BOATS. Some side missions include Pizza Delivery, maybe even limo missions, like taking teens to the school Prom. The emergency vehicles will be back for round two. Alot of the missions will be hidden. like the toyz'n missions, and the checkpoint missions. There are going to be 50+ indoor enviornmets. Some are Bars, Coffee shop, Bank, Night club, Airport, Shopping malls, and many more. Also you can rob stores, you can also go in to a clothes store and swap youre clothes for a cool suit or something. Most of the locations will be interactive. Well thats all for now. I really hope you buy this game. So long.

5 Star Review   By member superbeastdj - Aug 26, 2002   

Strengths: donent get boring more opitons

Weakness: none i can see and ive been playing gta3 for 2 years and when i compare it to vice city i see no Weaknesses

i was a game tester to find bugs in the game and see if everything worked so i know what this game is like with i think is cool is that you can get bikes the kind that goes 100mph and hellecopters are cool too. theres tons of new opions and thinks you can do all little extras that are hard to find but once you find how to activate that its so cool thats all i can really tell you i have to keep some stuff secret or they say the game will get boring fast but anyway bye for now. if u lieks gta3 u have to buy this one and i know you will.

5 Star Review   By member phuckyourmouth - Jun 23, 2002   

Strengths: lot more to do

Weakness: not many

The game is exiting I cannot wait to play it everyday! The gameplays cool and the 80s are just the way I thought they would be! No military or fbi this time though only cops ambulance and fire. you only get the flamethrower, pistol, and shotgun which is kind of lame. the helicopter police are very aggressive compared. Motorcycling is sweet also. the graphics are the same as gta3 though/no improvement there. the cops did not change as far as acting they still smash into everything and only come after you. they seem to get into more head on collisions too. there are jumps and stuff out in the water too so have a hoe down with the boats im not telling you anymore just play it for yourself when it is sold to the states.
