Description

In this compilation, Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City come packed together in one package. Xbox users can now play the games that were so popular on other systems.

GTA III has you fighting your way through the underworld of Liberty City, where crime is at the heart of business. The freedom to go anywhere allows you to steal cars, use any weapon you can get your hands on to complete a job (for cash of course), while the opportunity to rise through the ranks and become a legend of the crime world awaits.

Vice City combines all of the element of GTA III with the color that we remember from the 80's (along with the bad hair and crazy music). Again the underworld awaits you, this time set in the picture perfect Vice City, at least from the outside. Take on your usual jobs (getting the hit on an unsuspecting enemy) while going the grand theft auto with a bunch of new vehicles, all while wearing the latest 80's clothing plus the official tunes from well known bands from the era.
