Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Things may not be quite as fun as they once were, but each addition to the Grand Theft Auto series still manages to sustain our interest. As the series has been recycling many of its missions since the release of the original game way back in 1997, it’s certainly bordering on the stale side a little. In spite of this, its personality has been left intact and, as remarkable as it may be, it’s still somehow enjoyable.

  • Excerpt: Can Rockstar overcome the failure of Liberty City Stories ? Have they finally created a successful GTA side story?? Will there ever be a Grand Theft Auto game where buildings don't pop in??? Fughettaboutit. Straight from the PSP to your Playstation 2, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories is Rockstar's most recent trip back to the well. Overall, the graphics are a step up from Rockstar's last port-- Liberty City Stories .

  • Conclusion: Will a San Andreas Stories pop up on the horizon? Well that thought aside, I’m now off to Burger Shot for a tasty Heart Stopper burger, and a cool refreshing Diet-Sprunk.

  • Summary: Forget Liberty City, as the days get longer and the temperature goes up there's only one super violent community you need to think about -- Vice City! Vice City Stories doesn't reinvent the Grand Theft Auto formula, but it is a solid port of a fantastic PSP game. With its budget price and great action this game may prove to be too difficult to pass up, even if they didn't do anything special for this console port. This product was submitted by the publisher for review.

  • Excerpt: With Vice City Stories, Rockstar brings us another shot at the world of Grand Theft Auto. It's the usual suspects here; drugs, prostitutes, guns and a whole lot of violence.

Vice At a Price

  • Conclusion: A crap port of a great game is still a crap port. The good game part helps, yes, but when everything about the way the game plays on the PS2 feels like a rush job, it doesn't really instill a feeling of satisfaction -- if if the game is only $20.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

Auracore MediaWorks
15 January 2007
  • Summary: A fantastic GTA release that takes players back to the familiar sights and sounds of Vice City.
  • Pros: Great presentation is in keeping with some of the best titles in the series; awesome soundtrack; fully intact GTA action and side missions for those who just want to roam the city; features like the "Empire System" add a level of depth to non mission elements.
  • Cons: Bug and glitches galore, both graphically and auditory; gameplay can become downright frustrating due to twitchy controls; Protagonist's story can lay it on a little thick at times; the PSP seems to struggle playing all the content simultaneously.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

AV Club
6 November 2006
  • Conclusion: A playground of totally '80s excess worth revisiting, especially with such ballsy satirists at the cigarette boat's helm.
  • Pros: Rockstar must be where mix-tapes go when they die. The game's crack selection of period tunes promiscuously spins cheesy pop hits next to little-known genre gems.
  • Cons: Occasionally, the only mission between you and the rest of the story is an elaborate, multi-step caper that goes south every time an ally dies or a ride goes up in flames.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories Review

GameSpot
3 November 2006
  • Summary: Vice City Stories is more like a sidestep for the franchise--it's a great deal of typical GTA fun, but doesn't really move the series forward in any meaningful way.
  • Pros: Vice City is just as gaudy and cheesy as you remember it, Fantastic soundtrack and radio dialogue, Longer missions, More multiplayer modes
  • Cons: Some control issues with the combat, especially in melee, No real forward progress for the series to be found here--old issues still remain, Texture popping is still extremely prevalent
