1 new vehicles and better vehicle damaging modeling are excellent which makes this game a good experience. Story of game is complex and more entertaining than GTA 3 and its all prequels. For soundtrack there are 9 different radio channels that play while players drives on the road. There is also an option in which player can play soundtrack of their choice by simply copying songs in file of game setup.
Saving style of the game is little frustrating in which player has to return to some specific save points. Also this is possible only after completing the whole mission. There are some missions that are longer than others and if you fail at any point in those missions you have to play it all over again. GTA – Vice City also got some negative reviews for being too violent and sexually explicit.
