    GRAND THEFT AUTO
    VICE CITY STORIES

    Vice City, 1984. Opportunity abounds in a city emerging from the swamps, its growth fueled by the violent power struggle in a lucrative drug trade. Construction is everywhere as a shining metropolis rises from foundations of crime and betrayal.

    As a soldier, Vic Vance has always protected his dysfunctional family, his country, himself. One bad decision later and that job is about to get much harder. Kicked out onto the streets of a city torn between glamour and gluttony, Vic is faced with a stark choice - build an empire or be crushed.

    "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories reasserts the series' dominance with another sprawling, open-world crime spree." GAMESRADAR

    Welcome to the 1980s. Welcome to Vice City, a huge urban sprawl stretching from the
    beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, a town brimming with delights and
    degradation. Tommy Vercetti is set up and loses everything. Sonny Forelli wants his
    money back, but the biker gangs, Cuban gangsters and corrupt politicians stand in his
    way. His only answer is to fight back and take over the city himself.


    One of the most popular game series of all time, GTA offers a mix of freedom, style and
    humour that few games can match. The successful formula is back in Vice City Stories, as
    players take control of Vic Vance, a disgraced ex-serviceman with a distinguished career
    in crime laying ahead of him in the sun-drenched urban sprawl of Vice City.

    The familiar 1980s setting of the original GTA: Vice City returns, with Vice City Stories
    boasting another superb soundtrack that matches the action perfectly.

    With new missions, memorable characters and the signature GTA gameplay, Vice City
    Stories is a welcome return to the decade that style forgot.

    • The PSP (PlayStation Portable) hit comes to PS2
    • Features new characters and missions, and an all-time classic location to explore
    • Fantastic 1980s soundtrack complements the action
