After being released from prison, Tommy Vercetti, a former mobster, is sent to the sunny and dangerous Vice City. When a deal within the city goes horribly wrong, Tommy embarks on a jorney across the city to reclaim what is rightfully his, no matter how many lives it takes.
Welcome to Vice City. Welcome to the 80s.

The game emulates the movie Scarface
(1983): a low life thug leaves a place he doesn't want to be (Prison/Cuba) and moves to Miami (or in VC's case, Vice City), gets caught up in a riot, wears flowery shirts, and begins to take over the city, with a chaotic ending battle. The apartment where Tony's friend was killed is featured, along with the area known as Little Havana that was featured at the beginning of the film, and two nightclubs (The Malibu, Pole Position Club) are clones of two nightclubs in the film (The Babylon, and the Little Havana Club).

In the beta version of the game, Fort Baxter Air Base was going to be larger, and have its own runway and communications tower. However, they removed this from the final game, but in the view from the other island (when you are not on the island the air base is located) you can still see the tower. When you enter the island, it disappears. Among fans of the series, the tower is known as 'The Ghost Tower'. See more
And I digress, and plug.
