The fact that we can't go high enough to land on some of the tallest buildings. 

Yeah, the flight ceiling is disappointingly low with helicopters and the Skimmer.

It's possible to reach higher altitudes with the Rhino using the flying cars cheat and the turret boost. Some taller buildings lack roof textures and collisions though.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO where to start? Where to start? WHERE TO START? WHERE TO START?! WHERE TO START?!

 

1. The city is BORING AS HELL compared to Liberty City FFS Saints Row 1 Stilwater is MILES better than that wretched ass place

 

2. That BIG ASS BEACH taking like 20-25% of the ENTIRE DAMN MAP
 

3. SOOOOOO MAAAANNNYYYY featues from GTA III were removed to make this game seem better in comparison when they add it to this game

 

4. The cops are litteral downwgrades from their GTA III counterparts

 

5. Fist fights are WAY to easy compared to oGTA III and having more health and armor certainly doesn't help at all

 

6. WEAPON balance is almost non existent in this game

 

7. Downgrade in ambience and to some extent weather

 

8. Story is too short and boring after killing Diaz

 

9. Should have been an expansion to GTA III but wasn't

 

10. Unlike GTA 3 where a lot of the hidden packages were actually fun to find they made them to bland and plain to find in VC

 

11. The rampages are MAJOR downgrades to their GTA III counterparts

 

12. The animations sometimes are worse than GTA III's

 

13. It is WAY to easy to fall in a batch of water and drowned compared to GTA III

 

14. You can't run and shoot with an UZI

 

15. The NPCs are downgraded compared to GTA III's

 

16. Cars spawn and despawn WAY too easily

 

17. The less clever gun locations

 

18. A whole bunch of bugs and glitches

 

19. The reduce taxi pay out

 

20. No top down camera from GTA III

 

21. Health packs costing (like the ideal but it was not executed properly)

 

22. No money cheat

 

23. The fact that people don't realize that GTA III is better

 

24. Should have came out in 2003 to be worked on longer

 

25. Downgrade in weapon spawning at your house reward

 

AND thats just talking about the downgrades to GTA 3! I HAVEN'T even got to the actual probles in GENERAL!

I'm gonna be honest, some reasons you've stated here are quite exaggerated. Not to mention that some are not true or just kinda bias in general... 

 

I especially don't get reason number 25 because I don't see how can it be a downgrade if the weapon spawning is the same. Reason number 18 was also exaggerated because the game doesn't that many bugs, at least on my copy of the game. Reason number 14 is not true because you shoot and run with either a MAC or a TEC-9. May not be a UZI, but it's pretty close to it. And I don't get how reason number 23 has something to do with the game.....

 

Here are the things I disliked about GTA Vice City.

 

1. The cops can get annoying with those dumb spike strips...

 

2. You can't swim. Back then, I thought this was a useless feature, but it's really needed in this game...

 

I'll try to think of more, been a while since I've played the game.

Removed? Many features were not implemented in GTA III at all because R* had to meet deadlines, and GTA 2 to GTA III was a huge leap already.

I thought it was better than in GTA III, the M16 in that game was ridiculously overpowered.

I'm glad it was a full game instead.

As said above, the Tec-9 and Mac-10 exist for that.

I found it more stable and better optimized than GTA III back in the day.


And of course the fact some people prefer VC has nothing to do with "downgrades" at all. Agreed with about half of the points though.

Oh yeah, that is a MAJOR issue. I hated how they generate a random gang. Besides they're VERY easy. The locations are fine.

I agree, rampages were more challenging and diverse in GTA III even though VC had more weapons. All gangs are only armed with pistols in VC and headshot rampages are gone. Chainsaw rampages were a nice addition but katana rampages were really awkward.

This goes for a bunch of GTA games, but the lack of high frame rate support is annoying. They just couldn't bother to update the console code and what ends up happening on PC is that the game freaks the f*ck out when you go above a certain frame rate, especially above 60 FPS and even that is not completely playable.

When the paramedics come to resurrect your victims there's nothing you can do to prevent them from doing apart killing them which is particularly unrealistic and annoying since making your victims unresurrectable is much harder than in 3 and San Andreas.

When it gets dark, the windows in most of the buildings will not light up. Its like they are abandoned buildings or something, Making the city feel depressing and dead. Thankfully they fixed this in Vice City Stories.

i seriously hated driving boats and playing and mission that included boats due to their poor handling.

Cortez everytime throwing Tommy in difficult situations , i bet that idiot wouldn't have survived even after his ship passed Vice City territory.

Cortez was useless, his ship was useless.

Dessert or beach with no bike showroom over there to get bikes.

- The beach takes up too much space and is mostly wasted space

- Entering boats is harder than it should be, I ended up falling in the water too many times trying to get on one, and no swimming means you're screwed

- The infamous game breaking bug ie the Cherry popper save glitch

- Not a big fan of the RC vehicle missions

- The fact that you can't move around when you crouch

- As OP mentioned, the fact that you got to go to different locations to change into certain outfits, they should have been all available at the safehouses( although I cut them some slack here since it was the first time they implemented the changing outfits mechanic)

To be honest I don't mind this. Granted I can see how this might be a hassle for some people I'm not sure how this would be achieved since Vice City doesn't have a wardrobe and I think a cluster of icons would look and feel messy in a small space. Plus I like how the clothes tie in with different locations like how the golf outfit is available at the golf course for example.

 

Either way it's still better than the sh*tty "wardrobe" in San Andreas .It's probably faster just to drive in Vice City to different locations to change into an outfit by the time CJ changes since it's so f*cking slow LMAO.

Vice City Stories for example just has one icon where you can scroll through the various outfits so something like that could have been implemented

:lol:

I really appreciate the customization options in San Andreas but omg did it take a while to change outfits. Maybe it's just a matter of a few extra seconds but it was agonizing to see the slow animation of entering and exiting the wardrobe again if you accidentally selected the wrong outfit lol.

It's movement, Tommy moves weirdly to me, same history with the cars.
I also don't like the map, and the setting, the map was partially rushed, and i just dispise tropical/sub-tropical places, for f*cks sake, i am from a mostly tropical place, and i hate it!

It's kind of an odd comparison to make between the two's walking stances, on one hand you have 11 years of technological advancements with motion capture/game design between VC/V and on the other hand peoples views can be skewed by either nostalgia on the Vice City side, or simply being spoiled by GTAV if they'd played that game first. I'm no stranger to that as I've been playing Vice City since it's inception and in my opinion it outright beats V in terms of replayability and the enjoyment I get out of it however that is probably somewhat skewed by nostalgia. For all intents and purposes on a rudimentary modern scale V is the better game but it just comes down to what you prefer to play but at the same time it's odd to make comparisons between a game that was quickly churned out in just over a year using the previous games platform, and a game that had a good 4/5 years of development in a time when game design/technology was evolving at a rapid pace.

You can't use nitro with the taxis which makes you are forced to always spend a long time travelling between distant destinations contrary to GTA San Andreas, as if the poorly designed road network wasn't already annoying enough.

Even though I love Vice City one thing that bothers me about it is how disconnected the story missions are. The actual main story is pretty scant. Most of the missions in the games are basically separate little strings. Working for the Cubans and Haitians. Running errands for a rock band and bikers. Taking care of business at a taxi depot, a movie studio, a club, the printworks. Gun running for Phil. For that reason I actually see Vice City and V being more comparable games than San Andreas and V, because of how much of V is devoted to Strangers & Freaks instead of the main story. Vice City and V are structured very similarly, but I never see anyone mention it.

You can't use the rocket launcher to destroy the tanks which is particularly annoying when you see how powerful the police and army are compared to 3 and San Andreas.
