Vice City vs. San Andreas

Recommended Posts

Creasy_Bear

OK, all the guys I talk to about VC always say San Andreas is much better. I don't see it. Sure, SA is much bigger, better and more expansive but I say that doesn't make it a better game. It's the mood and the characters. I felt at home in Vice when i first settled down because it's kindov bright and cheery and you can get all this really cool stuff early on like sports cars, weapons and stuff like that. In SA i felt like I was in a very boring dark colourless hell. I'm not denying that SA is a good game at all, I love it, I just don't like people telling me more features make a better game.

It's kinda pointless to start such a discussion in a forum dedicated to VC, don't you think? wink.gif

 

Anyway, even though I was amazed at first with SA (bigger map, lots of things to do etc. - I think that there are places I have never visited in the game!), Vice City just exhudes nostalgia and personality.

 

Mind you, my favourite is still GTA III - ah, the good old days... smile.gif

Depends on what mood I'm in

 

I've played San Andreas alot more, but right now I'd say Vice City was the better of the two, just because everything moves much faster. San Andreas is heavy, and slow.

I play both, and I choose VC overall.

 

SA has much more to do, but its full of annoyances that VC doesnt have.

A confusing as heck road system is one thing. Bizzare AI behavior is another. Does every single car have to beep, smash, fight, kill, etc etc?

Do cars on the highway have to ALWAYS switch lanes as you approach them for no reason whatsoever? Annoying!

Next, I dont know what happened from VC to SA, but they really need to get the darn camera IN BACK of the vehicle ASAP when driving. It was perfect in VC, and now terrible in SA. These long sweeping dramatic views to the back of the car in SA do nothing but make you smash into things you cant see. Same with getting out of a car. Need to bail in a hurry? Not a chance. Exit and then wait for the sloooow camera pan twisting as it drops onto you, and now youre running against a wall, and a cop busts you or the car blows up and takes you with it.

Lastly, the soundtrack. Who picked these songs?? Theres like 5 or 6 songs that are decent, about 10 in all that ive even heard of and the rest are pure crapola.

Especially that station with the german guy, thats not even music, is it? dontgetit.gif The early 90s had much better selections than that.

Now I use the user tracks in SA. Never loaded a mp3 into VC. It simply doesnt need them.

 

To me, VC rules but i wish it had the content that SA does.

Despite all that, and just like VC, SA is addicting as hell lol. tounge2.gif

I think Vice City is more challenging, but in terms of overall fun (IMO) they are on the same level.

For storyline, Vice City by far. The replay value of VC is already exemplary because of the free-roaming environment that's long been a staple of the GTA franchise, but the feeling of starting a new game and being the new guy on the block having to build himself up from nothing just makes me keep coming back to it more than any other GTA title.

 

Now, when I feel like going on a rampage, it's either GTA3 or San Andreas. If I feel like being pursued by legions of policemen in an exciting car chase, GTA3 is the game for me. If I want to take to the sky in vertical jet and blow the crap out of anything that even comes within a mile of me, it's all about San An. Love that Hydra. inlove.gif

I don't know why everybody would say VC. I would say SA because it has more stuff to do. I agree that SA has too much foul language and the story is not as good as VC. VC is very good too but I just prefer SA more. SA has more pony farming land. I still play VC

I'm into San Andreas, because of:

+ storyline (yes, u hear good, I prefer SA story);

+ Easter Eggs an' funny bugs;

+ humor;

+ gangs territory (I mean taking it under your control);

+ three cities and countryside/desert;

+ absence invisible walls in the ocean;

+ fun, when I'm trying to get to another city (when I played it thirst time);

+ generally - gameplay;

+ Big Smoke biggrin.gif

VC has its own fair share of secrets, easter eggs and humour too.

And as far as GTA3 is concerned...click.

 

Not the best webpage considering it's hosted on freewebs.com, but it's got a lot of good information.

You have every right to be wrong wink.gif

 

VC stories has included many of the features of SA-- I'm not done with it yet, but love it so far...

 

You probably would not like III, but IMO sets the tone and expectations for all the others-- and the gangs in III are the best of the series---- Diablos, Mafia, Triads, Yakuza, Cartel, Yardies

GTA III was awesome.

 

1. Vice City. No 1 without a doubt in my book.

2. GTA III. The first look at 3-D GTA and it blew me away, I still play it to this day.

3. San Andreas. The game is OK. Lots to do, some good races and features.

4. LCS. Liberty City is a great city.

5. VCS. Only half way through it, and not really into it thus far.

I'd choose San Andreas over Vice City anyday. Now, don't get me wrong, Vice City is a great game and I still play it to this day, but there's just something about San Andreas that makes it my favorite game. Ever. And I think that it's the vibe that SA has. Plus, I just can't get enough of Radio X, or the era it's set in (90s ftw), and add to this the fact that Los Santos feels more like home to me than any of the other cities featured in a GTA game. It's these qualities alone that make up the replay value and to me it never gets old.

 

San Andreas ftw.

Um, ok.

 

What does that have to do with either Vice City or San Andreas being an OVERALL better game?

This is a difficult decision to make, as Vice City and San Andreas are both excellent games. But after some thought and consideration, I'd have to go with San Andreas. There's so much land compared to the other games, and there's much more missions. Sure VC may have had a better storyline, but after that, it seemed to become really boring. I think SA has much more replay value than VC, as well. And there's something about the cities that make them unique, especially Los Santos; the 'hood' look and feel just really grabs my interest.

 

But of course if we're to talk about GTAIII, then that would blow VC and SA away (in my opinion). Liberty City, to me, feels like the perfect GTA city.

What is all these talk about Vice City vs San Andreas??? They are two sequences of an extremely successful game franchise . GTA3 was a landmark in sandbox gameplay; Vice City's localization was quite unique with its "sand and the sun" theme; while San Andreas did an excellent job in advancing the series to an extent which was never before attained. All 3 games have their own specialities and it is actually unfair for GTA fans like us to actually compare them side by side and try to blow the superiority trumpet over the other. It will satisfy all of us if we consider each major GTA title to be a continuation of its excellence and hope that GTA IV will set a new benchmark in the same manner GTA III did.

 

So, I believe comparing two GTA titles is akin to comparing different versions of Quake or Half-Life.

Even so, comparing them is only natural, giving the fact that both are GTA games. It would be unfair to compare San Andreas to Half-Life, for instance; different games, different genres.
