  • Summary: 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 is a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, and is the most varied and complete digital city ever created. CombiningFrom 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 is a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, and is the most varied and complete digital city ever created. Combining nonlinear gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with seedy opportunities and are given the chance to take it over as you choose. Take control of a variety of vehicles including high-performance cars and motorbikes, powerboats, golf buggies and helicopters. Browse through the radio stations, with styles ranging from rock to electro to find a sultry melody or pumping beat to suit your mood. No matter what type of man you are, Vice City is always full of surprises. Expand

The character models, environment and cars look much nicer but unfortunately there is clipping and graphical glitches everywhere. It also feels that the difficulty has been somewhat toned down as well.

    There were a lot of things changed in this version like the PS2 emulated version on the Playstation 3 mainly the soundtrack where we lost Billie Jean, Wanna Be Startin Somethin, WOW, Rock-it, Running With The Night, Bark at the Moon and five songs from the Esperanto radio station because of licensing issues. They also fixed the frame rate problems the original PS2 version had and the emulated version on the Playstation 3. They also removed all Haitian and Cuban references like in the previous remasters as well.

    A great remaster to such an iconic game.

You actually travel to a time and place with a mood and aesthetic which makes it so fun to boot up again and again, in addition to the script having a more fun Tarantino vibe and a less realistic one Expand

The storyline is 2x better, gameplay is 2x better, even the radio music is way better. I definitley will return to this game on PC and play through it again as it deserves a second playthrough. However, the same problems that occured with the GTA 3 emulation on PS4 are sadly present on this port as well. Horrible framerate that dips down below 30fps, no proper widescreen support, playing at 480i resolution on a 1080p monitor wasn't nice. Some songs aren't present in this port due to the expired licenses and it's the Haitian friendly edition. Again, this game was worth playing for the story and the trophies. I recommend to get this game on PC and get the right patches. This game gets a 7 as I know that if this port got a proper remake, it would be great. Expand

    Didn't like the poor mechanics either. The camera is always out of place and clunky.

I love Vice City but this game is unplayable on the ps4. They could've tried the IOS version on the consoles but instead we get a copy and paste game with very stiff and awkward controls and with no efforts to enhance the gaming experience. I recommend sticking with the IOS version and forgetting about the ps4 version. If I never grew up playing Vice City I would've uninstalled this game as soon as I had it downloaded. I know It's a 2002 game and I don't expect a complete remake but Rockstars didn't even try to enhance the graphics, let you move the camera around as you move using the right joy stick, make certain missions and tasks easier, etc. It's pure laziness Expand

You can imagine how it looks like on a large TV with its 480i resolution. Nevertheless it is not able to run in 60fps... or 30fps... or sometimes even 20fps. Expand
