Welcome back to Vice City. Welcome back to the 1980s.
From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile. Vice City, a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, was one of the most varied, complete and alive digital cities ever created. Combining open-world gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.

Ratings and Reviews
Pretty solid and just like I remembered!
It’s April 12th, 2018 and with only about 2 hours of game time, I’d have to say that I’m pleased with the game. I’ve read of some freezing and so far the only “freezing” that happens is if I go to the options menu for more than 10 seconds, upon going back into the game it’ll take about 5 to 10 seconds to refresh and continue playing without any jumping after 10 more seconds. It’s pretty solid now. Fun game, just as I remember it being. The controls are surprisingly simple and mostly easy to use. You can even change the controls in the settings, to include button placement completely customizable with an ability to resize any control button. My only suggestion would be to immerse yourself into the game for a while at a time to prevent possible permanent freezing when going back into the game. I did so probably 5 times and the last time I did so, checking a message on my phone, going back into the game it froze completely. Other than that, it’s a great game! Enjoy!
GTA at its finest
Even years later, this title still holds up as an amazing game. Sure, the mechanics aren’t perfect from the era, but once I rearranged my screen(iPad pro 15”) i was very pleased and felt it was close enough to how I played back in the day. The voice acting is tremendous here with lead Ray Liotta as Tommy Vercetti. Following with greats like Burt Reynolds, Luis Guzman, Danny Trejo, Gary Busey, even somebody like Jenna Jamison shows up.
It’s funny how I find myself playing the missions exactly how I did it when I originally played the hell out of this game. Hitting all the familiar spots for health and armor along the way.
The last thing I will mention, that I love about this game compared to other Grandtheft autos in the franchise, is the media attention in the stats. If you never knew about this check it out, and then go kill as many people as possible and see what you can do. Search online if you want to find out what each tier takes.
Several bugs to be fixed!
I give this game 4 stars for being pretty faithful to the 2002 original. However, there are bugs that need to be fixed.
Firstly, sometimes when I get into a car, he camera doesn't move with it, and stays at the place that I got in the car. I can fix this by pressing the POV button when you are in a car, though. I still would like this fixed.
Secondly, sometimes when I resume a certain save file, the game remains on a black screen and I have to reenter the game. I do this, only for the black screen to happen again on the same save file.
Thirdly, there are times when I shoot my gun in a car, and it won't shoot. Only one shot will work, and the gun will stop working.
Fourthly, sometimes in general after a few shots, the gun doesn't shoot anymore. Don't know if this is intentional or if the original did the same.
Fifthly, if a car explodes and the screen gets a shaky effect, sometimes it keeps shaking, even minutes after the explosion.
Sixthly, when I drive a car up a ramp and the game goes into a slo-mo mode, the camera never goes back to the car and the game is still in slo-mo speed.
A lot of issues to be fixed. Fix these, and I will give 5 stars. Thx you.
