Did You Know?


Pipe Glitch: Get To The Second/East Island Early - There's a dirt mound with a police bribe at the top a bit northeast of Escobar International Airport's main terminal building. Beyond that mound there's a pipe in the ground. The trick is to jump on the pipe from the top of the mound. Alternatively, you can jump from the ground on the other side of the pipe. The key is to aim for where the sides of the pipe meet the ground. You will slide off and the screen shakes a bit, then POOF the "Welcome to Vice City" postcard (loading screen) appears. Afterwards you will appear on the Leaf Links golf course, which allows access to the east island. This trick will take some health away but not much. It may not work every time, but after a few tries, you should get it to work. Note: If you die while illegally on the east island, you will be taken back to one of the hospitals on the west island. Also, to easily get back to the west island, get the VCPD Maverick (helicopter) on top of the Washington Beach Police building or any of the boats at the pier. See more »

not at good as San Andreas but still good
12 July 2008 | by asim34522-1See all my reviews

I got two GTAs-GTA San Andreas on ps2 and this on psp and I have to say this is quite a good game. I mean the car stealing isn't as aggressive as in San Andreas and in San Andreas you can scale walls, you can't in this one but it still good. One thing I have noticed is some of the missions are similar to San Andreas for instance the mission 'Jive Drive' is just like the San Andreas mission 'Just Business' and in this the las mission 'Last Stand' is like the first half of the last mission in San Andreas 'End of the Line'. It is quite funny, I think this is more funny than San Andreas. This game is quite good so to any GTA fans buy Vice City Stories. (Oh by the way Vice means corruption so really they should call in Corruption City)
