Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is the fourth installment in the famous GTA open-world franchise. Set in the eighties, the game's main characters find themselves trapped in a world of crime and adventure, this time in a fictional city called Vice City. With respect to previous GTA titles, in Vice City a series of important graphical and gameplay improvements was incorporated, such as the ability to crouch. As usual in this saga, vehicles of all kinds, hundreds of peculiar characters and a first-rate soundtrack are the star dishes on the menu.

Plot

Tommy Vercetti is an ex-convict who served a 15-year sentence for murdering several men in Liberty City. Now he is relocated for work reasons to Vice City, a city that is characterized by an excessive amount of drug traffickers and, not surprisingly, many of Tommy's activities revolve around the sale of drugs. It is your task to lead Tommy through a series of missions entrusted by his boss, whilst earning credit and respect on the streets.

Gameplay

  • Action, adventure and driving: The gameplay is based on these three pillars. As you drive Tommy through the city, many epic missions will cross your path.
  • Wanted level: This determines the degree of police persecution of the player for committing crimes. As in the previous games, you will have to be very careful not to be hunted down by the city's whole police corps.
  • The locations: Vice City is based in Miami and has a large number of neighborhoods such as Banana Grove, Felicity or Miramire.
  • Improved arsenal of weapons : In this installment all of your favorite weapons from previous GTA titles were contained, while a huge amount of new ones make their debut.
  • Great characters: As the story evolves, you will meet a large amount of characters from different gangs, as of which you can interact with.
  • Vehicles: Many of them will be unlocked as we progress through the story and some will only become available after successfully completing certain secondary missions.

Graphics and sound

GTA: Vice City is part of the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy collection, meaning that you will be playing a remastered, high definition version of the original game. Among the enhancements we find new lighting techniques, higher resolution textures, increased draw distance, improved sound effects, and more. Speaking of sound, the soundtrack of GTA: Vice City is a true tribute to the 80s.

Game modes

Vice City offers a solo gaming experience in which you have to complete multiple main and secondary missions. Beating the game will take you 28 hours on average.
