Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Review:

Grand Theft Auto Vice City was revolutionary when it first hit stores in 2002 for PS2. A game drenched in 80's nostalgia, Vice City, was instrumental in forwarding the new open-world format. In many ways, Grand Theft Auto Vice City was one of the leading open-world pioneers of its time. Thankfully though, Rockstar's iOS version successfully captures the best elements while retaining much of the aesthetic charm that made Vice City so great. Join us as we strip bare and analyze one of the industry's most iconic games. Read on to find out how Grand Theft Auto on iOS shapes up when stacked against its original prototype. Game on! Gameplay First up, we have the gameplay. In Grand Theft Auto Vice City, you play as Tommy Vercetti, a low-level crook who rises the ranks of the criminal underbelly to become one of the most infamous outlaws in history. Similar in many respects, to Tony Montana's story arch in the cult-classic Scarface. Essential though, the player gets full license to roam around a fully- fictionalized version of Miami at their leisure. During the game, you'll enjoy a healthy host of driving missions. But also, other on-foot ventures that almost always involve combat. Thankfully, a rich medley of weapon types helps mix up the action. Outside of the main story, though, cruising around Miami at night and soaking up the intoxicating sights and sounds in an open-top Cadillac can be just as satisfying. Even better, in fact, on a mobile device. Additionally, Vice City has a gamut of in-game collectibles up for grabs, along with a slew of compelling side quests. In short, there's plenty of content to sink your teeth into, even if the driving sections come across a little longwinded. Overall, though, the various mission types help to satiate the most curious and inquisitive of minds. Visuals Next in line, is the visuals. Graphically, the iOS port is a spectacular sight to behold. Not only is does it sparkle with renewed shine. But players can also enjoy more advanced lighting effects, higher-quality textures, and remastered character models. On top of that, all the visual glitz and glam associated with the original is on full display here, with streams of psychedelic color flooding the screen. Of course, in true 80's style. At every turn, GTA Vice City on iOS serves up a visceral treat for the senses. In what to amounts to a faithful, but a nostalgic nod to the 80's era. Controls Finally, we come to the aspect of controls. Now, two main things help ease the burdens that sometimes arise using touchscreen controls. Unlike the GTA III iOS port, players can fully-customize the on-screen buttons. Thus, allowing you to set out your interface in a way that's more tailored toward player preference. Again, the auto-aim is a point of contention, much like it is in the GTA 3 port. On that note, the newly refined controls make it much easier to move, aim, and shoot. But manual aiming is brushed aside, in favor of a more than generous auto-aim function. All in all, this simplifies combat to a decent degree. That said, this style does suit the mobile platform. But sadly, it also eliminates any real sense of challenge. So, pros and cons, on that note. Final Verdict Overall, the touchscreen controls, though refined to some significant degree, do impact player experience. Even so, Rockstar's 10th-anniversary port is a fully-featured and visually impressive mobile version. But more importantly, its presence acts as a faithful tribute to the timeless classic. With that in mind, those wishing to relive Rockstar's 80's inspired romp, will find similar levels of satisfaction this time around. If you haven't already, now's is as good a time as any to revisit a real gaming gem.Enjoy!
