I agree with you, Vice city is good for it's allyways and indoor areas but I prefer Liberty city because it is not flat like VC and has a more gloomy dark feel about it all the time and i think the streets are organised better in liberty.

Both are different, but I guess it depends on ones taste in climate.  LC's New York based streets seemed more in depth and vast, and VC could be torn through because its so flat and the beaches also take up space.  

Liberty Wins.

Grand Theft Auto 3 Liberty City Is Better than Vice City !

If you could have gta3 With all the veihcles & weapons in Vice City it would be awesome!!!!

I loved Liberty for the hills and such, I loved seeing cops trying to chase me when I jumped accross the dam in Shoreside. Personally, I think Liberty is better for chases and stuff...

But if you want high-speed chases (without all the jumps and stuff), Vice is better.

Personally, I like both maps for different reasons. Both win. :r*:

Liberty is better. Its just the atmosphear. It seems more fun. I live in Florda, a 3 hr dive from Miami and it ws nice to jump off a hill without the guy screeming and then about .003 ways down it shows the guy fall into nothingness. I loved driving down the mini bridge in SSV with a banshee heding into rich-mans-land and after the Cartel manshion theres that clif and I just drive off that! I land car ceaches fire, I get out and run. Its relly rewarding :)

Vice City is better In my opinion.

Hills were just a nuisance. That day I tried out GTA3 after playing VC for one month straight and I decided to start a chase. Near the airport I decided that I will take a shortcut so I did and next thing I know I'm flying over a series of hills and my car flips over. Also this is a CITY game. Hills have no business in it. If I want hills I'll play some rally game or somethin. The real jumps and stunts belong on the roads, buildings, and rooftops, something that Vice implements PERFECTLY.

2. Layout
In the same gaming session mentioned above I noticed how stupid Liberty's layout was. R* seemed to have just threw a bunch of roads on top of land and programmed buildings in between. VC uses the ingenious "Trunk and branches" Road system with a big main drag with roads leading out. Liberty's Portland had one but it was on the side of a wide Island so it had no use, and the Staunton circular one was a joke. As for the little roads in between, Vice also implements them better, with each road having a use.

3. Atmosphere
GTA3's atmosphere was dull, lifeless, and depressing. The buildings were all grey, everything was dirty, and my eyes were paining. Vice, on the other hand, has a "big-time" crime boss atmosphere to it, which I love. Also, whoever says this game has no gloominess whatsoever hasn't:
1. Explored the city's alleyways and backstreets.
2. Visited the second Island.

In GTA3, you were confined to roads and a few buildings and off-road locations. In Vice, everyother building has an alleyway or backstreet behind it, and the rooftops are all accesible by aircraft. Also, people complain that R* wasted space with the beach and airport. Well, I prefer having some free space for me to do whatever I want rather than less space.

Well, this is my report on why I like Vice more than Liberty. However, remember, this is MY opinion, I have no problem if you write a report simlar to this one. However, if try and rip apart my report or say "Your opinion is wrong" then sorry, but a couple of men in black armed with sawed-off shotguns will be visiting you tonight :devil: .

No impossible, The police are everything that they were in gta3 plus they can puncture tires, they duck behind cars rising only to shoot at you, they have back up from undercover officers, SWAT decend from helicopters and they are generally more inteligent.

Afterall The police in VC began the same way as in GTA3, it would be really bad to make them worse!

I like Vice because of the neon lights on teh hotels. and the water is more clear, but liberty has better gangs so they both have pros and cons.

In Vice the beach and the airport make about 40% of the islands, especially the beach, they could've added a whole 'nother island to the game if they made the beach smaller. The airport is kind of pointless seeing as there are no planes, not even a dodo or chopper to steal there, so that could've been smaller. Vice is also flat, so you can't make random flips that you don't want to do, but they end up kickin a** any way. In GTA3 I've had so many more memorable moments because the game was so glitched up. Liberty looks more like an actual city, It's dark, polluted, and the gangs seemed more original. Vice really isn't as big as it's cracked up to be, there's just more randomly placed roads with alleys. Like I said before if you put the beach and airport together you could get a whole other island. Ultimately, Vice has a 'happy giddy' feeling to it, as if there is no crime, which I don't like, Liberty had the vibe of crime and drugs etc to it. Vice is kind of a waste in my opinion. :dozing:

We've had a year to play gta3. memories stacked higher than we can imagine. Give vice time, and you will love it all over again, like a fresh gta3.

for the first couple of days playing vice city, i had this gut feeling something wasnt quite right about it,apart from the trials mode in vice being much worse than gta3- there was something else.
and i didnt click what it was until only 2 weeks ago-THERES NO HILLS!!!!!
i havent come across a single town/city in real life with a flat landscape- maybe its just me?
but this wasnt it-i feel the brightness makes it feel fake, and up until 2 weeks ago i thought gta3 was much better.
but 2 weeks ago i decided to go have a play on gta3, to my horror, i felt it wasnt as good anymore :O  :O , he didnt walk or run quick enough-was just too slow, the camera angle was too low as well, things which were spot on before!!!!
then i jumped in my banshee- too slow as well, but i think this is caused by the fact the roads are alot more spacious in gta3 giving the impression you're slower, and the camera angle was all wrong again- this time too high!not by alot but just enough for me to notice!
everyone gets excited by the fact theres alot more cars in vice, but to me they're too many- on most 1 hour plays i probably dont see half- no joke! i didnt know what a glendale was until not so long ago and ive had the game since release(uk)
back to the main question:
liberty city is a far more real landscape, it has hills, bumps,kerbs you can walk on and enough alleyways to please me!
i know its not, but the islands feel "wider", i hate the fact that vice's maps are very long, if there were just 3 main islands with slightly wider profiles, they'd be almost spot on!
also the layout i feel is more realistic in liberty city!
for example-portland island is the industrial area, the docks are there and its mostly what you would associate as out of town places of work, there is no housing with the exception of the diablo area with flats which are present in these areas as its cheap land!
staunton island is the "downtown" area-shops and recreational areas- the only thing which would of made it better is more accesible rooftops and buildings. also more defined shops!
shoreside vale-housing basically with another industrial estate, topped off with a airport, i personnaly think they could of made more use with the airport, and impo think it was unfinsihed!
to me-thats a real city, it just feels more complete!
vice city:
1st island-i dunno
starfish island-somewhere to put diazs mansion!!!
leaf links-i think a golf course is a neat idea, but takes up alot of space for which imo is only needed for a mission!
prawn island- very neat idea- but again, once the missions are done- any need?
2nd island-my favourite island, theres something useful everywhere on it- a nice long stretch for blasting down on ur bike, loads of shops to look at and hold up,a stadium and generally more realistic!
i personally prefer liberty as you can tell- also i feel the gangs in liberty city are more distinctive and serve more of a purpose, the radio stations are much better in gta3 as well but emotion and fever on vie are brilliant!!
ive definitley had better moments playing liberty city!
although i like the idea of owning businesses,but i felt that the safehouses were much better in liberty city!
one last rant- popping windscreens are god fun,but,and i dont know if it was just me- who else used to cruise around liberty city in a fast car, then pull up at the lights,drive by and have a "race" with another car?  i loved to do that but sadly have only been able to ull this off on motorbikes on vice city, the pedestrians are much more reluctant and 9/10 times i end up shooting the wheels which are/should be much lower than my range of fire from the window?!
i think popping tires is very cool, but you should really have to aim to get them- and windows- why just the windscreen, i want to pop all windows!!!!!?
thats my long post over- sorry! :blush:
just had to get a few things off my chest!
im sure ive missed things out which other people have brought up- so id love to see everyone else thoughts!

I have to say i prefer Libety City. I love that dark noir feel it has, especially the first island. For almost the entire time i was there it felt like the entire city had a deep loathing for me(i don't mean the game did dumb crap that made me fail missions, i'm not a masochist), like it was screaming that it didn't want me there, like i should have died on that bridge. Made me feel right at home.

I like liberty better, it is a REAL city, In think that vice city is just way to confusing to navigate, and i feel that the city may have been a little rushed.
