Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (abbreviated as GTA: VC or Vice City for “City of Vices “) is the fourth game of the Grand Theft Auto series and a prequel to its predecessor Grand Theft Auto III (GTA III). It was first released in 2002 for the PlayStation 2 , then 2003 for Windows . For the tenth anniversary on December 6, 2012, a port for iOS and Android devices appeared. The game was indexed in Germany, because in the first edition there was the possibility of circumventing the principle of censorship anchored in Germany by means of an installation without German country code. Shortly thereafter appeared a defused version that could be freely sold and purchased. This game was also very successful commercially. It has sold more than ten million copies worldwide.

The action takes place in 1986 . The protagonist is Thomas “Tommy” Vercetti (voiced by Ray Liotta), who committed multiple murders and fifteen years in prison for Sonny Forelli, one of Liberty City’s mafia bosses. At the beginning of the game he is released from prison and sent by Sonny with two friends to Vice City to handle a drug deal. During the deal, those involved are attacked by masked gangsters. Only Tommy and Ken Rosenberg can escape. The two companions of Tommy are shot and the gangsters escape with the money and the drugs. Sonny asks Tommy to bring him back his drugs.
Mainly the game, like the other games in the GTA series, consists of a combination of shooting and driving sequences. The tasks for the player can be divided into three categories: main missions, side missions and free games. Both in the missions and outside the missions, the police react to certain criminal acts of the player. The more crimes the player commits, the more cops and other units take up the persecution of the player.
As an innovation, real estate can be purchased for which the player can later fulfill orders. If all orders for a property have been successfully completed, they regularly throw a protection money. In addition, the game can be saved in a property, which is an improvement to GTA III . In GTA III, there was only one savepoint per island , which meant that the player often had to take longer trips to the missions. Depending on the price, the property has one or more garages where the player can park his vehicles. These are then available after a restart of the game.
Side missions are not part of the story and can therefore be performed at any time. For example, as part of a collective mission in the game world 100 hidden parcels must be searched. Monster stunts require the execution of wide jumps with vehicles. Taxi missions drive passers-by to the desired destinations. These mission types do not have to be done contiguously and can therefore be interrupted and resumed later. In contrast, the fire department, police and ambulance missions can not be interrupted. It must be doing a certain number of the same tasks, such. As the deletion of fires or the killing of criminals are performed. Compared to its predecessor comes as an additional side mission the delivery of pizza perAdded moped . To achieve the goal of a 100-percent match, the side missions must be completed. Parallel to the main plot, there are also subplots with various other clients, similar to previously in GTA III . These include u. a. the real estate king Avery Carrington, the Cuban gang leader Umberto Robina and the rock band Love Fist . These missions are built like the main missions.
The game world consists of the fictional US city of Vice City in the 1980s , where hotels, bars, beaches, etc. are the main features. It is obvious that Miami and Miami Beach served as a model.
The eastern half of the game world (Miami Beach) is accessible through the normal routes at the beginning of the game, but the bridges to the western part of Vice City are closed due to a storm warning, so the player has to complete some missions of the main action for easy access to unlock the western half. Between the two large islands, which make up the main part of the city, are several smaller inhabited islands. Starfish Island is the mansion district of the beautiful and the rich, a nod to Fisher Island . Prawn Island is a run-down island with a movie factory and mansions that serve street gang as a meeting place. Three more islands form the golf course Leaf Links.
