Over the years, games in the Grand Theft Auto series have enjoyed large sales. Because of this, I got a little curious in the franchise. After briefly researching about the game series, I played a Game Boy Color version of the first installment online. The game was fun but my interest dwindled because it has a lot of bugs.
Some time after I bought myself an Xbox 360, I got the Xbox version of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. I was slightly disappointed that the game cover is just an orange background with the title instead of the one featuring faces of some of the characters. But anyway, the game is pretty much the same as in all platforms.
While Xbox 360 is backward compatible with some Xbox games, the software-based compatibility isn't perfect in some of those compatible games. As for this one, things like missing vehicles at the save scene, and freezes occur once in a while. But those didn't stop me from enjoying the game.
As with all games in the Grand Theft Auto series, the player plays an antihero, which in this case Tommy Vercetti. Missions in the game include slaughtering certain individuals, bombing certain places, and doing theft. I guess that's okay considering, a lot of people in Vice City are lowlife.
Something tells me that whoever designed this game probably likes the color pink. I mean the title "Vice City" is pink. The aura that you'll enter to play a mission is pink. The radar that tells your position is pink. Even the message that tells you if you fail or succeed in a mission is pink. I don't know why but I like it.
Of all the Xbox games I've played, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is the toughest. Difficult missions in the game include having to gun down a dozen armed thugs, using toy helicopters or toy airplanes to bomb things, or trying to escape a lot of cops who want to play bumper cars with me. However, I was able to complete it.
