Storyline

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

Trivia

The Great Rockstar Easter Egg Hunt - Scattered throughout Vice City are ten signs featuring a drawing of a happy face and a hand-written number (1 through 10 in the PlayStation Portable version, 1 through 11 in the PlayStation 2 version). This face is the same one used in the Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories (2005) (VG) easter egg. For instance, Sign #6 is found on one of the rear walls of Hyman Stadium. Sign #11, which is exclusive to the PlayStation 2 version, can be found in the same place as the infamous Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002) easter egg. See more »

Quotes

Phil Collins: Hey Vic, have you ever though about a career in management?
Barry Mickelthwaite: Hold up, boy! I'm your management!
Phil Collins: Yeah... Miss Management. Or was that just Reni's name for you? You should have got those false tits, mate, just like Reni suggested. They'd look great alongside that real one you're using for a head.

A worthy return
10 January 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee 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.

9/10
