Bullets, Lies and Drugs
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for the PC presents itself very well. Because of the hard drive, Vice City doesn't have extremely long load times which plagued the PlayStation 2 version. The game loads extremely fast.
If you have a good graphic card, you will notice the difference between the PlayStation 2 and PC versions. The PC version has better models, better textures, and better frame-rates.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has the best music collection in any game up to date in my opinion. A slew of radio stations with hand picked songs from 1986. If you don't like '80s music, you're in luck. If you go to C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games/Grand Theft Auto Vice City/mp3, you can put all your favorite songs in the game. You can just put shortcuts to your favorite mp3's, and Vice City will play them in a station called MP3 Player. Note: Only MP3's will work, any other format won't.
The game has an excellent selection of music, great sound effects. The pedestrians have dirty mouths, and comedic comments.
Vice City is not linear, which is excellent. You are free to do whatever you want. You have to follow a linear mission list to progress, however. The controls are easy enough to learn in less than 10 minutes. In Vice City, you are free to drive around in a slew of cars, motorcycles, buses, and scooters.
Once you complete all the misisons in Vice City, you can keep playing the game. You are free to do whatever you please. You can play the game for hours just driving around in your car listening to Flock of Seagulls.
Wherever you play it, Grand Theft Auto : Vice City is an excellent game, whether it's on PlayStation 2, Xbox, or PC. You will get the richness of Vice City on any console.
