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?


Pipe Glitch: Get To The Second/East Island Early - There's a dirt mound with a police bribe at the top a bit northeast of Escobar International Airport's main terminal building. Beyond that mound there's a pipe in the ground. The trick is to jump on the pipe from the top of the mound. Alternatively, you can jump from the ground on the other side of the pipe. The key is to aim for where the sides of the pipe meet the ground. You will slide off and the screen shakes a bit, then POOF the "Welcome to Vice City" postcard (loading screen) appears. Afterwards you will appear on the Leaf Links golf course, which allows access to the east island. This trick will take some health away but not much. It may not work every time, but after a few tries, you should get it to work. Note: If you die while illegally on the east island, you will be taken back to one of the hospitals on the west island. Also, to easily get back to the west island, get the VCPD Maverick (helicopter) on top of the Washington Beach Police building or any of the boats at the pier. See more »

Way better than Liberty City Stories.
28 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After the horrible letdown of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Rockstar Games decides to release a better version of Vice City, which is the portable Vice City Stories. This game is much better, and the graphics are improved. Also, the city in Vice City Stories seems a lot bigger than it was in Vice City, and the game-play doesn't get boring as easily as it did in Vice City and Liberty City Stories. The only cons I can think of are aiming your gun, and weak missions. Otherwise it's pretty fun, and it makes Vice City look super boring, which it kind of is. If you are a fan of Grand Theft Auto, you should definitely check this game out.
