GTA Vice city:The Best Android Action Game

(Editor:Scott Adam Gordon 8/11/2014)
Grand Theft Auto is household names. It is billion dollar franchises, with an army of passionate followers. The franchises originally found fame on consoles, so we want to find out why game delivers the best experience on Android provided by 9Game.

Introduction

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is considered by many to be the best game in the Grand Theft Auto series. Rockstar's beloved sandbox action game is set in the neon-soaked 80s, taking place in “Vice City”, a region heavily based on Miami, Florida. You play as mobster Tommy Vercetti (voiced by Ray Liotta) as he goes from rags to riches in the criminal underworld.

Gameplay

GTA: Vice City is heralded as one of the finest examples of gameplay, and it still remains intact on Android. You start the game having just been released from prison after 15 years and begin working for local kingpin, Sonny Forelli. The story evolves as you complete various missions, earning money and increasing status along the way. It contains the staple GTA gameplay, freedom to drive fast cars, bikes and helicopters around the city, causing mayhem and blowing stuff up! The story missions are fantastic, there is some great writing and characters you meet along the way are fantastic. 

Controls

Vice City's controls are... not great. Sadly, it's just very difficult to make third person controls work on touchscreen devices, so it's hard to be as accurate (and honestly, I didn't think it ever handled great on consoles). Vice City employs contextual buttons which change depending on the situation you're in. Driving a car, for example, delivers a different set of on screen controls to when you're running on foot. I can't think of a better way of supplying the controls for this game, which made use of about a dozen in its original release on Playstation 2, but it's often frustrating. 

Graphics

Vice City hasn't aged particularly well, and appears to have received a slight downgrade to compensate for performance issues on comparatively low-powered handheld devices, but it is almost 12 years old. There's still huge variety here, in terms of the number of vehicles, locations and characters, and the lighting is great, driving through streets at night in the rain looks particularly pretty. 

Conclusion

I have to make a conclusion that GTA: Vice City is a game that was merely ported from an older system. If you can forgive the controls, Vice City has bags of personality, a hugely enjoyable open world and one of the finest video game anti-heroes ever in Tommy Vercetti. Its one of the most highly regarded video games of all time, and I still think it's worth your time now more than most other modern games.
