    Second only to "Syphon Filter" in the handheld action stakes, Miami Vice really is a most pleasant surprise. Attractive, enjoyable, with a raft of extras, this is just what a movie license should be. [Issue 144, p.82]
  2. There’s not a whole lot to Miami Vice, whether we’re talking about gameplay or appeal. It’s a fun enough game to play through once, but considering its low variety and even shorter length, it’s at best a rent.

    A highly polished action title with a Co-op mode that should provides hours of gameplay after completion. [Sept 2006, p.117]
  4. Its control system isn't perfect, but it's workable and makes for a fun game. Everything is over far too quickly though, and the mini-games and the game's relation to the movie have to be questioned.
  5. Basing Rep Bonus upon the choice of weapon you decide to use and whether it's the suit or body armour, there's a great sense of 'risk & reward' to the game; it's just a shame the actual action doesn't require you to put that much on the line, with its entirely predictable nature.
  6. The game is short and easy, combined with troublesome controls and bland visuals that don’t do justice to the wonderful material the game is based on.

    Other than that, Miami Vice is the most unremarkable eight hours you'll sppend en route to a lousy concclusion this year! [Oct. 2006, p.91]

Feels much like Syphon Filter combined with 24 the game on PS2. However, the downside is that gameplay is a bit too short, and there are some minor gameplay glitches..despite all this..it is certainly a great multiplayer experience that hardly gets old. Collapse

    Brilliant game . The more you play the better it gets .

    INTENSE action on every (well made and varying) levels with excellent character
    Brilliant game . The more you play the better it gets .

    INTENSE action on every (well made and varying) levels with excellent character mechanics and challenging AI make each mission great fun, also there are bonus items to be found which give you advantages later in the game.

    Spend time between missions strategically buying and selling drugs to make cash, decoding 'flash-ram' to unlock special features and upgrading your weapons and outfits.

    If you're a fan of action shooters that require some deal of thought and manual accuracy , this game is a must have... forget all the other reviews and just give it a try!
