Summary: Admittedly, I have a slight obsession with Miami-related things. When Michael Mann's remake came out in 2006, it became what is one of my annual screenings, and although many "purists" might disagree, I think recreated the mythos in a much needed way from the slightly dated 80s show. I heard the soundtrack (to this game) on iTunes when tracking down the movie soundtrack, and fell in love. Musically, this is one of the best, most atmospheric games available for the PSP.
Experience the crime busting action of Miami in style, in this short, but fun shooter

Summary: In Miami Vice, you get to relive the experience of being either Crockett or Tubbs, the crime busting duo from the movie of the same name that has recently appeared in theatres. Not only do you get to break the law, but you get to do it in style. (And all in the name of peace, of course) From a first glance, the opening level takes us to what seems to be the normal first person shooter.
A fun little shooter game to play during spare time

Summary: A game based on the original show is what I really want to see. Still though this isn't a bad shooter game to play when you're bored. Some people don't like the controls but I think they aren't that bad. You just point the laser scope from your gun at bad guys and shoot. It's not the greatest game I ever played but at least it's not as bad as it could've been. It's been then I thought it would be.
Summary: Wow! If your hesitating on this game, do me a favor and slap yourself! Then go get it! In comparison to other shooters...Miami Vice is a Grand Theft Auto/Syphon Filter type game. In other words, you have the freedom to visit different areas in Miami (using a GPS map like system) to make drug busts, make drug deals, and of course weapon up!
An entertaining movie tie-in but slightly let down by some minor things
29 August 2011
Excerpt: Miami Vice: The Game is a third-person shooter game for the Playstation Portable developed by Rebellion Developments in 2006. It is a tie-in with the film of the same name - which was itself based on the 80s series - and follows roughly the same storyline. The series, the film and the game revolve around two police detectives working undercover in Miami, named Crockett and Tubbs, who combat drug trafficking, prostitution and other crimes in the area.
Summary: It won't take long to complete and the attempts at varying gameplay (drug dealing, upgrading weapons and costumes, decrypting datasticks) have limited value, but while it lasts this is a satisfying title. It looks good, plays well and makes good use of its licence.
Summary: While I would agree with the previous review that this game is a lot better that the press/internet reviews have stated, it is very short. I completed the game in about 6 hours and I don't consider myself to be an expert. In fact I was so surprised the game was over I wonderered if the game hadn't suddenly crashed, but helas no such luck 6 hours for £29.99. I would suggest this is more a rental that a purchase.
