App description: Welcome back to Vice City. Welcome back to the 1980s.

From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile. Vice City, a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, was one of the most varied, complete and alive digital cities ever created. Combining open-world gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.

If I remember correctly there was no blood and you couldn't kick people who were on the floor already.
Kinda minor stuff, but anyway.... I just don't like censored art
Got the US version thanks to freemyapps a day later.

I'm curious about the "new, precisely tailored firing and targeting options". Dare I hope for free aim (the one thing I kept hoping Gameloft would throw into their GTA clones)? Feel free to crush my dreams.

Thanks for sharing! I guess it's not minor if it changes the experience, right?

Interesting that kicking someone on the floor was cut...

Not a fan of censored art myself...

Anyhoo, thanks again!

I give up.

So how is the targeting and shooting? Any different to GTA3?

People today are spoiled. They don't realize how groundbreaking these games were when they were first released. They might seem slightly outdated but they were the originals. Sandbox games were modeled after GTA3 and GTA:VC once these came out. Any serious gamer should feel priviledged to have these on a PHONE. It's just crazy. To only be 14 again and witness this...

Ok - I never played this, have GTA 3 and not made it through the story. I enjoy cab missions and occasionally advancing the story plot if the difficulty isn't 'cheap' (like you need a walkthrough to know how to succeed). I did get through most of Chinatown Wars on my DS years ago.

Is this game for me?
