Trivia

On one of the talk-show stations in the game (VCPR), Jeremy Robard, a "motivational speaker" names a few of his treatment tapes. All of the titles, when abbreviated, are names of drugs. "Motivate, Demonstrate, then Motivate Again" becomes MDMA (Ectasy), "Think, Hold that thought, Complete" becomes THC, and "Learn, Start, Do" becomes LSD. See more »

The song "Añung Añunga" is incorrectly listed as "Agaunile" in the game manual. See more »

Quotes

Jenny Louise Crab: Well, life's great, isn't it? HEHEHE! I mean, good things come my way because I hold each one close, because I deserve it.
Konstantinos Smith: I bet you wouldn't be so cheery if you had the black plaque. Jenny's living in a fictional world. Goths like me, we see the world for what it is. Dark songs of the night, black nail polish, and very tight black jeans, man.

The Game
10 April 2006 | by ShippmeisterSee all my reviews

GTA: VC is nothing short of a masterpiece. The cast, the theme, the play. It all fits so well, the closest a game has come to being a complete life replacement. I had only played this in limited amounts when it first came out and wasn't really hooked, I then bought San Andreas for PS2 and decided to back track to Vice City for PC. Low and behold it contains an aura that San ADreas does not. The soundtrack fits the game like a glove, the map is quiet a lot like Miami and the fashions and vehicles available just made it near perfect. One thing different from San Adnreas is that Tommy Vercetti is a winner, he is respected, whereas Carl in San Andreas is always battling for it for some reason, Tommy just seems to be a tougher character, and his rise and rise throughout the game confirms this.

I guess there is a fault with this game, it came to an end, eventual I suppose, but it did not look open for a sequel, perhaps Rockstar can throw us back to the 70's?, imagine it, GTA: San Francisco
