  1. 1. How Would You Rate GTA VC Now?



Recommended Posts

I’ve seen threads on GTA IV as well as V and SA in relation to this, so I thought I would do this with VC. And yes, I’ll do it with III as well, but either today or tomorrow. I rate it about a 9/10 as it’s my second favorite GTA, beating beaten by only to IV/EFLC. What about YOU GUYS?

Sinner!

6/10 

 

Pros

 

It captured the time period well & it has an impeccable 80s soundtrack.

Nice variety of melee weapons.

 

Cons

 

cliché predictable & boring story filled with fairly one-dimensional characters.

Tommy is extremely boring & has the personality of the baked potato.

Losing health falling off bikes. 

Horrible camera.

Vice City is overly dense & compact and lacks the living atmosphere that Liberty City captured.

Playing on a console the auto-aim feels awful.

Missions which involve remote control planes...bleh 🤮

 

 

Vice city is alright, it lacks the charm & nostalgia I get from III, it doesn't have the scope & ambition of San Andreas or the quality story of IV or the extremely well-written & original script of V...but it was a good game for its time.

10/10. The gameplay is _somewhat_ dated compared to more recent entries, but the atmosphere is here to stay.

My 3rd Favorite GTA. Brilliant Soundtrack, Atmospheric Map and 80s Setting. Brilliant Dialogue and Characters. Decent gameplay. A bridge from 3 to SA.

It is somewhat sad, yet it's completely understandable and objectively appropriate to measure things by their ' technological superiority ', especially when it comes to computers or closely tied gaming industry. 

 

Vice City, just like any game from 3DU, except maybe for LCS or ADV, is simply ' too big ' to be measured by such ' degrading mesurment '. Objective one, but still demeaning. Why? Simply because these games never flexed their muscles in that sense - being technically superior than others and all - not even when they came out. Everything in Vice is so perfectly interwoven together despite being simple. Open world, story, mechanics, visuals, you name it. Totality of small and simple things that make that game so grand, something that cannot be measured by technological input or parameters. When you dissect everything and try to look at things separately, like driving mechanics, e.g, you'll see that it's nothing special, even under par comparing it to games from that time, let alone something modern. But, you'll completely forget about it as soon as you take even one casual drive or complete one mission and you'll see that it somehow fits there perfectly.

 

Even its visuals - fantastic and colorful atmosphere - never meant to be taken as a final word of graphical and visual achievements, but rather to appeal to our imagination with its comic book alike appearance. If you ask me, that's true definition of art right there. Superior graphics of today is inevitably going to be questioned tomorrow, or even be laughed at. But if it's beautiful, rather than just 'good looking' according to visual standards, you won't even have to make any comparisons in that sense. Only handful of games can be praised for achieving this feat.

10.

I know it's got it's flaws and the subsequent GTA's maybe technically superior, but as it was my first open world game, it was an absolutely magical experience for me. That experience of exploring VC  and being able to go wherever you wanted(mostly), driving as fast as you can ,brawling with peds and getting into massive shootouts with police for the first time, with graphics that young me thought was gorgeous, was an experience that can't be recaptured personally (I know you can do all of what I said in other GTA's as well but VC was my first so it was all very new and special to me). Add to that the amazing soundtrack and 80's atmosphere, and a badass (to young me atleast) protagonist in Tommy V, and I thought then that it was the best game ever. I dont think it's the best now, but its still really special personally, so I give it a 10. Totally not a biased rating.

Great game for it's time but hasn't aged very well.

I liked the atmosphere,radio stations,great voice actors and some of the characters.

But the story was subpar and I always hated the VC map design and still do.

While i don't get as much enjoyment playing VC as GTA 3 or SA but still I like it more than GTA IV.

7/10

 

I love Vice City, the cars and helicos' handling is excellent, I love the soundtrack, Tommy Vercetti is a very good badass main character, the difficulty is much better dosed than in San Andreas and the game is definitely still worth it but the city feels too small with a rushed western island, many very interesting parts of the story are dramatically under or not exploited at all, the taxi missions are very boring compared to 3 and San Andreas, the paramdic sub-mission sucks as much as in 3 and I surely forgot many other positive and negative points.

 

GTA VC would be even better if Rockstar took more time to develop it even if its quality is very good by itself given the short time it took to create it.

8/10. Back in the day it was 9.easy, but it has aged badly. The map design is terrible, story is short. Lance needed more time. Physics are terrible and the cops were horrible even back in the day. Great music, good mission variety and interesting characters.

9/10.

 

Will always be the best 3D era GTA. Its shortcomings I feel are fairly minor. Improved on GTA III in every major way in just a year and it doesn't feel as try hard as San Andreas while still remembering its roots. Brilliant protagonist, story is good (It's by no means a masterpiece. Serviceable though by 3D era standards), great soundtrack, excellent variety of interiors, cool map etc.

 

I'll always have some sentimental attachment to it since it's set in my birth year.😎
