Vice City, 1984. Opportunity abounds in a city emerging from the swamps, it's growth fuelled by the violent power struggle in a lucrative drugs trade. Construction is everywhere as a shining metropolis rises from foundations of crime and betrayal. As a soldier, Vic Vance has always protected his dysfunctional family, his country, himself. One bad decision later and that job is about to get much harder. Kicked out onto the streets of a city torn between glamour and gluttany, Vic is faced with a stark choice - build an empire or be crushed. Written by Davi Silva

Did You Know?


Is the first game in the GTA series to feature a real-life person in cutscenes: Singer/drummer Phil Collins. Is also the first game in the GTA series to feature a GTA radio DJ in cutscenes: The transsexual filmmaker-turned-pornstar-turned-DJ, Reni Wassulmaier (voiced by Barbara Rosenblat), who previously featured on Flashback FM in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories (2005).

VCPD officers carry a Beretta 92 handgun as their sidearm, which is strange because the Beretta 92 was only issued to U.S Armed Forces in the 1980s (Marines, Air Force, Army). It would make more sense if this gun was only carried by the soldiers at Fort Baxter not the police. See more »


Toni - Flash FM: Man, I ,like, dig this place! Like, the T-shirt says "I Heart Vice City." Man, I ,like, so "Heart" this place! It's pretty bitchin'! I get laid a lot.
Teri: No, you don't. It means "I Love Vice City." It's symbolic, as in, "I'd Heart Your Ugly Face Getting Run Over By An 18-Wheeler, You Tramp?"

Rockstar, Outdoing it's self once again.
27 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When i put this game in to play, as I've done with all the other "Grand Theft Auto" series, i said, "ok here we go" And as soon as game play began i immediately knew that this was it. "Grand Theft Auto" was back with a vengeance!!! If you loved Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, then you will definitely love Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, hands down. It delivers the same brilliant atmosphere and feeling as the original Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Set in 1984, just two years before the events of (GTA: Vice City, set in 1986) Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, captures the essences of the 80's just as well as the original GTA: Vice City. Rockstar did and amazing, and outstanding job with the hardware of the Sony PSP, (PlayStation Portable) The graphics are fantastic, and tweaked just a tad bit better than Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, which is also a PSP title, and also available for the PlayStation 2. The action delivers, "big time" It's a spectacular masterpiece on a Portable Hand-Held that can all fit in your pocket. So if you're looking for a little fun on the run, any time and any where, pick up a copy of this Game for the Sony PSP. There's nothing more satisfying then having "Grand Theft Auto" at you're side. Nothing has been left out. A true Fan of the "Grand Theft Auto" series will know that this is the real deal. What you get with the "Grand Theft Auto" Games on the PlayStation 2 Console, is what you get with the PSP. And i am truly impressed with RockStar Games, for pulling this off....again. So i strongly recommend, without a doubt, that you buy this title. And even if you don't own a PSP, my advice would be to go out and invest in this, for ones own pleasurably, and leisurely fun. This Game alone is wroth it, pure bliss...i guarantee it. Enjoy.
