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?


VCN Building Easter Egg - Hidden in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002) was a literal easter egg - a chocolate easter egg that said "Happy Easter" on it. This easter egg is back, but since this game takes place two years before Vice City, it isn't quite finished being built yet. Go to the western end of the Downtown bridge that goes over to Prawn Island and enter the VCN building. Go up to the roof and from here, go up the ramps to the helipad. On the northwest corner of the helipad is a small rectangular window that belongs to the building next door. Do a running jump into this window to find the easter egg, complete with construction crane. Also in here is #11 of the happy face easter egg signs. It should be noted that this easter egg and happy face sign do not exist in the PlayStation Portable version. FYI: This easter egg is what the hidden sign inside the boat was referring to.

The police would like to talk to the kind-hearted driver with regard to littering charges and several hit-and-runs. If you have any information as to his whereabouts, call us on 555-FUNDUST. VNN: Cashing in the chips of truth!

empire building
29 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

the one thing that really struck me about this game was the attention to detail to fussiness for example with the empire building which basically has you attacking a fussiness similar to the gang wars engine on san andreas then once it has been wiped out of any remaining gang members you are able to buy it. then you are able to choose what fussiness type you want from protection, loan shark, prostitution, drugs, smuggling and robbery then you choose if you want it to be a small fussiness medium or large. this is a great add on to the game and i hope is used for future games overall i would give this game an eight out of 10
