Things GTA Vice City did better than GTA San Andreas

Recommended Posts

Deep Verma

In Vice City, weather was awesome + peds walking style was unique and different, like girls walking like how they walk, that blue suit guy at docks walking like a penguin, etc. 

 

SA, is boring, boring environment.

Graphics - Now this is entirely subjective but I felt VC's graphics were more crisp and beautiful if that makes sense

 

 

When I first played San Andreas the first thing that came to my mind was it looked worse than Vice City. I doubt it's really the graphics and more I just preferred Vice City's cool, calm art style however I get what you mean. I've never liked the way San Andeas looks of any 3D era GTA.

 

It was made worse by the crappy "remaster" in 2014 that tried to make everything look HD with character models looking like Barbie dolls dipped in vaselline. Yuck.

The worst thing about it was turning Kendl's body white, but keeping her head black. Not that turning her white makes any sense anyway.

Vehicles. San Andreas has the most boring lineup of vehicles in any GTA. The only memorable ones were originally featured in Vice or 3.

Graphics. Subjective, but Vice is more visually appealing than San Andreas.

Story. VC's story does not stand against 4, but its still better than SA, which had a messed up non sensical stort.

San Andreas really made the series go downhill. But at least IV came after that.

Especially the Infernus that didn't even look like a Infernus at all.

I like how empty gun shells drop on the ground and produce a sound in Vice City and III. For some reason the effect was removed in San Andreas.

And the fact that death animations are varied depending on where the ped is shot makes gunplay feel more intense in the first two than in San Andreas.

I like the gun sounds better in Vice City.

 

Dunno what it is about SA, but the gun sounds are a little different to the overall atmosphere (if that makes sense!)

They're way too loud!!

Probably already mentioned, but I like the Asset system in VC. Sure, it exists in SA as well, but it's an afterthought, easily forgettable. Asset properties are much more central part of the game in VC and I often feel compelled to go around to all of my business and collect my earnings, an aspect that I like about the game.

Atmosphere and soundtrack, love Vice City's 80's vibe and the songs in SA pale in comparison with VC's. 

 

Story and MC. Tommy is the most badass GTA protagonist after Niko for me and I liked how focused he was on his goals (taking over the city), everything he did followed that. CJ was all over the place with what he wanted
