With vice city, its been released about 3 or 4 years ago, its still good. If you look at it now, there is a bit more to do, than gta 3. I love the 80's soundtrack in the game, the graphics are decent, the gameplay isn't to complex at all. The thing is, you can get out of a car chase pretty quickly, and finish missions quickly. I really like the large selection of cast members voicing the game, the thing is, it seems like tommy vercetti doesent have much lines. And the cutscenes dont have anything interesting, or exciting, kind of like gta 3. Its just cool that vice city takes place in the 80's, the good times.
I am not a fan of the 80's. The cars were bulky and ugly. The music sucked. But what I loved about this game over GTA3 and even GTA San Andreas was the businesses you could own. I loved how once you unlocked a business it would continually give you money. It made you feel like what you do matters and kept the replay value of this game much higher than GTA3, San Andreas, and even GTA4.
I also liked how as you got more hidden packages, more weapons and vehicles were unlocked. The Brown Thunder missions with the Apache helicopter were so much fun. Even better was the floating helicopter with a mini-gun attached that would spawn at your mansion.
This game was so scratched up my son could not even enjoy it. I have received too many games this way. Does anyone else have this problem? They should let you rent for free for a month for all the problems I have had. This will be the fourth game we have been unable to play. Gamefly is a joke, no customer service, takes forever to get the games, when we move this will stop forever. Very upset with the service from Gamefly
