Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is a game that just isn’t easy to describe, because everyone on the planet will play it differently than the next guy. While linear games are still great, games like Vice City really define the direction that single player games are moving towards – a game with endless replay and thrills. Don’t come in thinking this is more of the same when compared to Grand Theft Auto 3, because you’ll be cheating yourself. Just go ahead and buy it, and experience what is no doubt the best game on the PlayStation 2. While no game is perfect, this is about as close as it gets on the PS2.

After hundreds of games I've played through since the release of GTAIII, it's still the one that's easiest to pick up and just run around for a while causing mayhem. I truly do believe that these games are priceless, and they'll go down in history as some of the most influential and important releases in the videogames timeline. I'm hoping that 5 or 10 years from now, there will still be developers willing to come back and get a little inspiration from the world that Rockstar North built. I'm fairly certain I will.

There is little left to say, except that you should already own both of these. And if you don't, Rockstar has just made it easier and cheaper to do. Now, do the smart thing and buy this PS2 bundle, for God's sake.
To be honest, these GTA games are 1 and 2 years old respectively. Even though it was only available on the PS2 during these years, many Xbox owners have either played or beaten it in this time. But despite these facts, you won't find a better game like this anywhere. Still very unique seeing as no other games provide intense gang member action combined with hookers and fast cars. With over 100 hours of total gameplay in one 50 dollar bundle, the GTA Double Pack is a great deal. Even once completed, you can still run around blowing people away. GTA is still one of the most unique and best selling games in the gaming history. It would be a miracle for GTA not to sell in the millions for Xbox in the coming months. Check it out!
