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

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 »


Victor 'Vic' Vance: [Lance and Vic discover their mom took all their coke] So what do we do now, moron?
Lance Vance: Wait, wait, wait. Let me think. I know we can make it right! We'll just... uh, uh... We'll explain things to the Mendez brothers.
Victor 'Vic' Vance: Oh, yeah, yeah. I'm sure that between chopping us up and feeding us to their dogs, they'll be very understanding! Lance, if we get out of this, I'm gonna KILL YOU! Asshole!

A worthy return
10 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll say right now that I've had a LOT of fun with "Vice City Stories", and a huge part of the game's draw is returning to Vice City (it was fun to witness the architectural changes in the prequel setting). A nice new addition was the Empire building feature, which spiced things up but still made it satisfyingly more-of-the-same. The soundtrack is (again) terrific, the satire and talk radio shows are as much fun as ever (I need more Billy Joe and Bobby Ray) and the story's a departure for GTA; sometimes it works, others not so much. But then they had to go and integrate Phil Collins into the actual story - a stroke of brillliance, and I love that Phil was down with this.

What this game really proves is that Vice City is an awesome place in which to set a GTA game (take note, Rockstar).

Many hours of fun.
