Well since I played San Andreas, I got all in the mood to play Vice City again. Almost forgot how polished the graphics are in this game. ;-) Mind you, SA does point out some faults in the other two. No control of the camera angle, locking onto the right targets is a pain in the backside and of course the area in SA is just so much bigger.

Plus of course you can't swim and stuff in the other two games. Shame they didn't have those faults sorted out from the start. A Florida setting with a big map similar in size to SA woulda been great. ;-)

Coming this winter: Grand Theft Auto Vice City - Under Ten's version.

All weapons now shoot water which proves much more effective than bullets.

Two months after release Daily Mail fears new version will encourage teens to take water guns to the streets.

I've got the urge to get back into Vice City now that I've conquered San Andreas.

Vice City had by far the most character of the three games, and Tommy Vercetti was the epitome of cool. Just a shame that I'll have to avoid water like the plague again.

San Andreas is great but R* were, I think, a little too ambitious with the size of the playing field. Not that I mind loads of room, but I would like the console to be able to handle it better, without loads of pop-up. Which is why I still reckon GTA3 had the better designed city, and as you say, it did have a really good atmosphere around it, very dark and gritty, just like the criminal underworld.

GTA3 had that really nice dark gangster/mob feel to it. Whilst Vice City did not.

Don't know why, but I've always prefered GTA 3 to Vice City. It felt a lot smoother for one thing.

That said however, San Andreas overshadows both nicely.

I think GTA3 was better for impact and originaliy etc

Whereas Vice City was the same thing but more boring (in my view). Alas, San Andreas was a vast improvment.

Yeah

Yeah I heard San Andreas' targeting is much better and I like the sounds of the character development they've implemented.

I still want to get my money's worth out of the double pack before I get San Andreas.

Mabye I'll just trade it for the Halo 2 expansion disc.
