Vice City Stories ftw, due to a self righteous protagonist with great melee combat and just it being awesome.

Vic has a real personlity.Perhaps it is hypocritical psycho but he can take care of his freinds and I really like him for that :lol:

In my opinion, original VC was better.

I think VC was a better crime game. It was a bit strange to have Vic say he doesn't want crime in the cutscenes, and then have him brutally murder half of the VC population in freemode. I do, however, really like the empire system and mist importantly: Lance Vance. I loved and hated him at the same time.

Overall, Vice City Stories is better. But Vic was a very below-average protagonist. He constantly says he wants nothing to do with drugs yet he builds drug empires. And even after he says he wants nothing to do with drugs, he ends up at a drug deal two years later and his hypocrisy gets him killed. That's why Tommy was much better personality wise. Because he actually had equilibrium. He stayed true to himself and never came off as a hypocrite like Vic did most of the time. Plus even though Tommy was ruthless and hot-tempered, he was still loyal to most of his allies and you could tell by looking at him that he really did have a heart deep down (though he rarely showed it). So yeah. The only thing VC is better than VCS at is the protagonist.

Yeah, Vice City Stories is way better than Vice City. Anyone with a brain knows that.

A hell of a lot more time, effort, money and passion went into vice city, vice city stories on the other hand was a quick and unimaginative game that took less than a year to design and release.

Rockstar were just looking for a quick buck to fund the development of gta 4.

Although I do not hate vice city stories, it is not even close to being as fun or memorable as the original.

I like more VCS, but I love killing Lance Vance Dance. He's such an asshole.

radio station wise- no there are a lot of obscure b side  songs that I just change the station when I hear yeah it does have a lot of good 80's classics and the wildstyle station is flawless but vice cities music selection wins.

 

atmosphere wise- i'd say the original vice city is slightly better. it has better use of pastels and neons it captures the ambience of 80's Miami perfectly. vice city stories is sort of hard on the eyes the colors are too strong and the landscapes and land marks are kind of dull. for example vice city stories mall is a step down from the original vice point. the interior is half barren and you cant buy food from the food court when your energy is low. as a matter of fact what are the other stores there for? you can't rob them.

 

protag wise I would have to vote for tommy. don't get me wrong I like vic he's the strait man and a stand up guy but he lacks the cool that tommy has.

f*ck no. VC is the best 3D Era game while VCS is one of the weakest.

 

The gameplay and graphics are better but thats it.

Vic Vance is just lame and boring compared to Tommy. The side characters aren't much better.

The story is pretty bad too. Vic's "rise" is silly

 

It lacks the charm that VC had. The 80's atmosphere in VCS didn't really grip me like in the original.
Overall I would give VC a 9/10 and VCS a 6/10 at best

VCS uses twice as many neons as the original.
