Rated 8 out of 10 by GameBoy#86 Vice city stories is a great game for 80's lovers
We're back in Miami only this time in the past of 1984 where you play a tough former corporal soldier who was discharged from the Port Baxter Base Military tries to make it big with the help of his brother lance in the dark, violent, glamourous city of Miami. Vice City stories is a lot better than vice city only missing parts like able to go into and own places like vice city but its still great. you have the new feature where you own businesses and your cash goes into your account everyday making you successful & filthy rich. you can choose between different types of business and run them as a small time,medium or large high roller business but the high roller level of business is where the money is. you even have the chance to rub out other gangs and take over every gangs business and each gang has their level of business. you can also recruit your gang and they will protect you and your businesses and if you want to cause mayhem and kill, well... their with you every step.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Muskrat Love Another great 80s game
If you were a fan of Vice City, this is another awesome game but goes back a couple of years from the first vice city. This vice city however is Lance's side of the story. Game is awesome and you will see familiar faces from the 1st vice city. They added new features which is the empire takeover. It's like taking over territories in San Andreas but instead its business takeovers which is awesome. I like it how they put in jobs like the drug deals and robbery. I was disappointed about the robbery like briefcase carrier and bank van. I was hoping to do bank heists like in san andreas and vice city. Loan Shark is great, but disappointed that you steal the same two cars every time I wanted it to be like a list of cars. The payment every day at 16:00 is great, a good way of making money. Storyline is great, graphics kinda stink but I'm that kind of person that likes the variety of fun as in I don't care about graphics I just want the fun of it. The music is awesome if you're a big 80s music fan. Other than that the game is sweet and it's worth $** new, I wouldn't buy it used consider my ps2 is old.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Xavier Diaz Good Game
This game isnt like GTA SA but it does stand out. It has surely better things than GTA III. If you like games that take place in the 80's you will sure like this game. At first i wasnt used to it because i played San Sndreas for a long time but after a while it became one of the funnest games ever. This game is worth $14.99 and u should by it. this game shows that it is the most recently made game in the GTA series for ps2. I just hate how you have to write such a long review. i just have 254 more characters before i reach the minimum so i can leave. People i have a facebook as xavier Diaz. If u want more tips and cheats just add me on facebook. Or u can just lok on the internet LOL. So fellow game buyers thanks for listening to what i had to say and have a good day.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Arauce I woudn't trust anything ..
..the previous posters have said. IMO the game has improved since GTA:VC PC: with new features added and altered to buying and making your own buisnesess. And then beeing able to do things based on them. Only glitches i noticed where slow load times while driving really fast [but that was because of the psp].. and when inside a building and with grabbing a person while beeing close to the wall: actualy going through it and falling into the water soo far away that the dry land was too far away to swim to. I guess diffrent PSP's, diffrent problems. But, other then that the game's controlls are verry easy. And anyone can just start the game and play like a pro.
Rated 10 out of 10 by PynWreck Great way to finish off the PS2 GTA's.
As a GTA player since GTA 3, I think this was a great way to finish off the legendary PS2 series. The story is about Vic Vance (Lance Vance's brother; who you either love or hate), a former soldier who got framed for having marijuana in his room. It makes a great prequel to one of the best video games of all time (Vice City), and instead of leaving the city how it was, they change it just the right amount where it feels like a whole different game. I would definitely recommend this game to a friend.
Rated 0 out of 10 by moo-d DONT judge a game by its cover
I have this game on the psp, so i dont no if these two games are the same but i have been told they are. Personaly i think this game was not as good as just normal vice city PC version. Both games have pros and cons but i think that the PC original vice city comes out on top. Vice city stories did not have as much style with its characters, ROCKSTAR thought they were being smart but it just turned out pretty mediocre.

The reason LCS didn't feature as much is because it's a port from the psp, and San Andreas obvisiouly wasn't. VCS is also a port from the psp, and it's not gonna have tons of stuff like San Andreas, but it's still gonna be a fun game, and it's only $20. If you want more stuff Jeff, wait a few more months until GTAIV comes out. VCS will just have to hold us over until then haha.
Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer Of course it's not like San Andreas.
Stop comparing Vice City Stories to San Andreas. Of course it's not going to be like San Andreas because Vice City Stories is another Vice City game just like Liberty City Stories is like GTA: III. Vice City came out before San Andreas, so VCS is going to be like Vice City. If they make a San Andreas Stories, then that will be a lot like San Andreas.

I already reserved my copy at my local Gamestop here in Aguadilla. And will do the same for GTA 4 so i can recieve it on October 26. Tip of the Day:Reserve a game and keep paying it and save the reciepts and all you have to do on release day is just walk into your local gamestop and show said reciept and pick up your copy.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Cleptoism Hope the glitches are gone
I have this on PSP its really not all that enjoyable with cars falling from the sky and what have you. The story line is good but there were too many glitches for my taste. If the glitches are gone I would highly reccomend this game. When can we go online rockstar? Stop teasing us with multiplayer on PSP and nada for the system.
