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

Philip Michael Thomas (Lance Vance), Gary Busey (Phil Cassidy), Danny Trejo (Umberto Robina) and Luis Guzmán (Ricardo Diaz) reprise the roles they played in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002). See more »


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 »

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.
