Confirmed Improvements in GTA: Vice City


Gameplay Improvements


Improved cleaner, smoother hand to hand combat system that includes various kicks and punches. Also you can kneel down to steady you aim.

40 weapons. (Compared to GTA III's 15) These include a knife, machete, six-shooter, uzi, and many more. New character animations are included for each weapon, such as a stabbing animation for the machete.

Improved targeting system. It will change color depending on threat, and tell you if a ped is armed.

Improved AI. The police can now shoot out tires. They will also chase after other criminals this time.

Peds do more action such as jog, lay on the beach, roller-skate, sit on benches, cross streets, and walk in pairs. Peds will also crouch down behind cars when in a gun fight, and gangs will walk in groups instead of in single file or on their own in GTA III.

GTA: Vice City will be all open from the start! (Meaning you can explore the whole city without limitations.)

The city is two and a half times larger than Liberty City!

Ability to enter at least 50 buildings! These include and are not limited to: bank, coffee shop, hotels, shopping mall, airport, and night clubs. The buildings are multi-leveled and have fully decorated interiors.

Buildings are interactive. For example: walking into a store and buying new clothes.

Greater geographical diversity, such as downtown areas filled with skyscrapers, neon-lit boulevards, run-down slums, and swampland, the ocean, and a huge web of streams and rivers.

At least 100 missions (possibly 140) The missions will tend to be longer, more challenging, and more sophisticated with high-end production values, unlike GTA III's 'grab-and-go' missions. They could include a car chase, gun fight, and an interior interaction all in the same mission.

New side missions such as pizza delivery, and the rumored SWAT, limo, hearse, and ice cream missions.

The main character can talk.

About a 2000 page script, with greater character and plot development than ever before.

80 minutes worth of cutscenes, compared to GTA III's 30.

A possibility of playing as different characters throughout the game.

Vehicle Improvements


120 vehicles in all! (Compared to GTA III's 50)

Real-time shadowing on car's surface.

Improved on the number of reflective surfaces on cars.

Better lighting and shadowing. Scenery will cast shadows on your vehicle as you drive by.

Different types of police cars!

Higher resolutions.

Better damage models, such as broken windows. You can also damage your car with a weapon, like a bat.

You can bail out of moving vehicles.

Ability to shoot tires to slow down your foes. This will make the car lose handling. Warning: The police can do this as well.

New sportscars and trucks all inspired by the '80s.

Many more boats, such as a luxury sailboat, speed boat, fishing boat, Coast Guard boat; and waterways and canals all over Vice City to drive them through!

There are now motorcycles*, helicopters, planes (one with pontoons, so it can land on water), etc.

*When on a motorcycle your clothes ripple in the wind!

Ability to shoot forward on a motorcycle.

Multiple pedestrians inside a vehicle. (On the vehicle, in the motorcycle's case)

Ability to use weapons inside the helicopter, such as a sniper.

Graphical Improvements


Image quality is much cleaner and sharper than GTA III

All of the character models are amazingly detailed!

There is no sense of "blockiness" on models!

The city has bright neon lights and pastels. More mood-enlightening that the drab browns and greys of Liberty City.

The water is vastly improved! You can now see the bottom! It is not that dingy, fake look that GTA III had.

Fish can be been seen in the waves and in the bay.

Improved frame rate and even higher resolution textures!

A new lighting and radiosity system! This means bright neon lights!


Sound Improvements


There will be an estimated 9 hours of radio! (Compared to GTA III's three and a half hours.)

Close to 90 songs! These are actually real songs this time, from artists such as Judas Priest, A Flock of Seagulls, or Michael Jackson.

8000 to 9000 lines of pedestrian dialogue. (GTA III had about 3000 and that was roughly an hour and a half)

A GTA:VC soundtrack licensed by a major record label.




You can pop tires with the screwdriver.

Buddy is the main crime boss in the game. He is also voiced by Phillip Michael Thomas (the guy who played "Tubbs" in Miami Vice.)

This may be disappointing to some, but the DeLorean DMC-12 will not be featured in the game. The man I spoke with said they talked with Rockstar for a long time to decide if they wanted the car in the game or not. Ultimately they decided not to because they didn't want it to be another joke of the '80s. The DeLorean Motor Company has spent many years trying to give people a good image of the car. He said it's not like they're being prudish about the game's content, they just didn't want the DeLorean to be portrayed badly. I can respect that, since everywhere I go in mine I get an endless assault of "Back to the Future" jokes and some smart remarks about cocaine. It would be nice for people to appreciate the car for what it is. He was quick to mention the DeLorean giveaway without me even asking. Maybe they purchased the prize car from them?

I'm not surprised about their decision, it's like how the Gran Turismo series had no crash damage. Each company wants a good image of their product. There may be a car similar to the DMC-12 in the game, but we'll have to wait and see. "

[confirmed]There are sharks in the waters.

When you pull up to a gas station, an attendant will come out and start filling your car. This doesn't serve a purpose other than draining money. It just adds to the realism of the game.

You can ride normal bicycles, and maybe do a paper route side mission.

You will be able to rob banks or other stores.

[confirmed]Pedestrians can now interact with eachother. (Talking; getting in fights)

Besides the Pizza Delivery missions, there will be SWAT, Ice Cream, Hearse, and Limo missions too.

You will be able to enter movie theatres instead of them just being there for show.

[confirmed]There are flyable helicopters.

[confirmed]You can ride motorcycles.

When you crash into some buildings, it will leave a huge dent in the building.

You're able to shoot tires out, and watch cars sway all over the place and even slam into trees or fly off cliffs.

[confirmed]You can shoot out tires.

Since not many people like the model for the GTA: VC guy, maybe R* decided to throw in the GTA3 'Fido's head as an extra model, or just him totally since it would be a cool idea, and hey, it's a possibility.

[confirmed]There will be knives.

Jenna Jameson may be voice-acting the character 'Candy Suxx'.

[confirmed]There will be jetskis.

[untrue]You have the ability to swim.

[untrue]You can swim, but there are sharks in the water to keep you at bay.

An El-Train runs around the islands.

[confirmed]You can fly airplanes.

There is a mainland and a second island that has a military base and an airport. The airport contains a Cessna-like plane that you can fly. The military base has a police station in it. It also has a military helicopter that if you access, you will automatically get a wanted level for being in a restricted area.

[confirmed] Cessna-like plane, military helicopter, airport.

There are military police and regular police in Vice City.

You can play as different characters.

[confirmed]Tommy Vercetti can change his clothes during the game.

Your car gets dirty, and you can get your car of choice washed in the carwash.
