I loved GTA3, and killing the cops was the best part... esp. with a sniper rifle at range and you hid in the car showroom.... this is ok though , because it aint real.......

Now a shopping mall or school yard shooting game.... fortunately for me I dont live in America (anymore) but it sounds like alot of fun... because .. it ain't real......

Sounds like a job for the Amiga, we used to have loads of twisted stuff.....

Awaiting flamage it's

If you can switch it off on the PC great, I suggest you do it. PS2 owners don't bother buying it, Vice City that is GTA3 is was great shame they didn't improve on it.

You can switch it off on the PS2 too!
Didn't i tell, that i play it on my PS2?
In the german version you have to select the menue "Anzeige" ("Display" in US) an there the second option (something like "Trails").

BTW: I updated both maps

2003-01-01: updated map of Vice City East (should be finished now). And happy new year to all of you.

The cars handle worse than the first instalment (car models look worse), the accuracy of the weapons with sights was bad in the first game, now its worse.

Just one thing. Isn't Vice City supposed to be set in the 70's or something. Last time I looked, 70's Cars do handle worse than "current, recent" cars in real life. (a good excuse to use if your a Vice City programmer)

I think you're right! The handling of the cars is like 1980. One of the best is the "Cheetah". But most of the time i use the motorbike (PCG 600 or so). It's fast an get's you to most places which you can reach on feet only.

@ Mike_Amiga

don't bother, MGS 2 is too short that doesn't deserve to be bought. Konami thought that the glory and fame of the first one was enough to do an attempt of a sequel.  Wait for MSG2: Substance this may be worth.

I agree with the part you said about it being a good excuse for the programmers. Even though cars may well have handled worse in the 80's that doesn't mean they have to make the games engine follow suite.

I can't believe in the first game that they expected you to hit people in the head on those rampages with a sniper, and if you didn't, it didn't count as a hit!?!  :-x I mean WTF man?

And they had the audacity  to make sighted weapons LESS ACCURATE.:-?

  :-x In the words of Victor Melddrew " I DON'T BELIEVE IT!" :-x

I will bitch about this game 'till I die, or forget about it. (no gangster style pun intended.) :-o

The MGS 2 demo was wicked, don't tell me it's shortness is a good reason to avoid it.I can always get it second hand anyway. It's the sort of game any "game addicty" will play again and again.

Just like the incredible Deus Ex (Mac/completed 8 times) and MGS1 (PS/completed at least 6 times). :-)

I really liked the game myself. Of course the music makes me feel a lil old  :-(  . I dont play it much though because I wont play this game infront of my kids ages 1 and 2.

MGS2 is really an awsome game even if it is short. Same with ICO. Short but damn good game.

Looking forward to War of the Monsters. Demo was awsome and I cant wait.

Did you find the switch?

The precision of the sighted weapons were worse in the eighties too ;-)

P.S: I like GTA Vice City. It's cool to fly the heli.

Too short? How long should a game be in order for it to be worth buying? It took me around 14 hours to finish MGS2. MGS is even shorter (I finished it in around 12 hours the first time I finished it).

MGS2 is a very good game, but I think that MGS is far superior. Too much conspiracy theories in MGS2, and WARNING: SPOLIER A FEW LINES DOWN





..you don't get to play Snake (except in the beginning). Raiden is a sissy  :-D

Vice city is an amazing game, not quite as revolutionary as gta3 but still a great game nonetheless.

It would be sooo cool to see games of this calibre on the AmigaOne...probably wont happen but would really be something.

I kind of agree with the person not really liking a cop / pedestrian killer game. I love that kind of games, but I also love not living in the US where little kids grab their daddies guns and run out to play gta in real life. Preferrably I would be without it, as would the youth.

On another note: Does anyone remember that game on the amiga? It had horrible graphics and horrible sound and I forgot its name. You are some dude that wakes up in a laboratory with a baseball bat. You then proceed to bash in the head of the professor, leave to the streets (2d scroller), bash pedestrians, kill cops, find a gun and some drugs in a building, nail an already dead person and finally get gunned down by a lot of policemen with tanks?

Personally I think that game rocked :-)
