Grand Theft Auto is a cultural phenomenon. Itís been railed on by conservative organizations, politicians and hysterical media all too anxious to pit the ills of society on its head. But instead of going for hard violence and tacky sex, GTA had achieved its infamous M rating with a distinct combination of style and wit that made you feel like youíre part of a great interactive crime movie. Vice City is nothing less.
While it builds on what weíve already experienced in GTA III, Vice City is polished and more expansive. You can enter buildings and buy property, ride motorcycles, fly choppers, a seaplane and mingle with the high and low-lifes of a Miami inspired metropolis. Itís all wrapped in an epic 1980s motif, complete with every stylistic facet of that era you can imagine. Scarface, Miami Vice and Goodfellas references are everywhere, from your wiseguy alter ego Tommy Vercetti (voiced by none other than Ray Liotta) to the final mission where you make a last stand in what looks like Tony Montanaís mansion.
