no, but it's better than gta liberty city stories
Is Vice City Stories the best GTA Game?
Posted 10 March 2016 - 07:31 PM
I have just finished replaying it recently, and after thinking about it, it's tied for me with VC for my favorite GTA.
I simply feel that VCS has too many ups and downs for me to consider it better than VC; VCS has a lot of aspects that make it excel from Vice City(be it some points in the story, a couple of visual aspects, the red balloons, etc.), but also some others that make it considerably worse than VC(again, some points in the story, many textures, awful framerate, the other half of the radios)...
It's just that while VC my be a constant 8(just a random number), VCS is at times a solid 10, but then it drops all the way down to a 4, sometimes an 8, other times it's just a 6...
I think I'll keep my"Vice86", though. VCS can have the title of"prettiest and most favorite sky of any game"title from me.

It's my most liked 3D Era GTA Game. The Radio Stations won me over.

This game is my second favorite in the III era, following close after GTA III. The city is much more vivid and colorful, it feels more alive. You could say it's the 80s in its glory!
The only thing that spoiled the game for me was Lance Vance. He always screwed up things for Victor, and I can believe Victor would never get into half of the troubles he were in if it wasn't for Lance... Makes killing Lance in Vice City much more enjoyable...

I don't think it's the best game (I don't want to choose a favorite game from this series; I'm glad they all exist), but there's a lot I like about it.
First off, there's more neon in the game and Vice City is more graphically impressive here than the original game, especially the changing colors of the sky (seems to me that the first game still has some of Liberty City's dankness in some spots).
I feel there's more content and it's longer than the first game.
A lot of what San Andreas offered carried over to this game which are the ability to swim, gang wars became empire building (which explains the constant attacks, as San Andreas had constant attacks), able to keep weapons after death, and purchasing custom vehicles.
I think the missions for both games are both excellent, since they're both multifaceted.
I don't know, I think this game is a great companion piece to the first game; I can't get enough of both of them.

Unlocking the Clymenus suite and walking inside it for the first time and saw the view of the amusement park no game could come close

I wouldn't say it's one of the better ones, but it did give us Rod Edge as a director.

The best? No. One of the best? Abso-f*cking-lutely, on the top among San Andreas and IV (+TLAD).

Not the best game but a good supplementary story to VC. I like Vic Vance, a protag I actually liked to be playing rather than had to be in order to play the games. Yes the Stories game are short but to me filled the gap between SA and IV very well for me.

It's fairly low down on my list of favourite GTA games. Maybe that's because I loved VC so much that VCS was always going to have a pretty impossible task to make me fall in love with the re-imagined city. VCS is a good game for what it is but with all the changes they made from the original VC it just lost some of it's atmosphere for me and therefore drops down in the list of my favourite GTA games.

I agree with Militia on a few points. If you're going for 100% then the initial "an entire GTA game awaits me" turns to "when is this over?" more often than not due to the tedious side missions. What makes this one so great are the illegal empire missions (Drugs, Smuggling and Robbery), the weather and lighting (sunsets!), the varied missions (even if a few are weak), the soundtrack, the characters and some other interesting tidbits lurking in the game.
Collecting vehicles is a pain on the PSP with the garage glitch (another glitch I come across is the random spawn encounter of the VCPD Cheetah, which can disappear from spawning at 3+ stars for a loooong time).
