The phenomenon that started on the PC with a commitment to expansive
non-linear gameplay, irreverent humor, and unparalleled action has gone on
to become a household name worldwide.
The world class gaming experience that is Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
is built from the ground up for the PC platform, fully optimized in a lush
splendor unlike anything you've seen before.
This is a chance for PC gamers to experience just what the fuss is all
about, and for console version veterans to revisit the beauty, glamour,
filth, corruption and deception of Vice City all over again.
Having just made it back onto the streets of Liberty City after a long
stretch in maximum security, Tommy Vercetti is sent to Vice City by his
old boss, Sonny Forelli.
They were understandably nervous about his re-appearance in Liberty
City, so a trip down south seemed like a good idea.
But all does not go smoothly upon his arrival in the glamorous,
hedonistic metropolis of Vice City. He's set up and is left with no money
and no merchandise.
Sonny wants his money back, but the biker gangs, Cuban gangsters, and
corrupt politicians stand in his way.
Most of Vice City seems to want Tommy dead. His only answer is to fight
back and take over the city himself.
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 is a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and
the glitz to the ghetto, and is the most varied, complete and alive
digital city ever created.
The PC version is packing exclusive features. Expanded controls let you
play in mouse-look 3rd person view or classic Grand Theft Auto console.
Plus integrated support for all major gamepads, joysticks and steering
Optimized graphics are pushed to the limit to take advantage of the
latest PC hardware. With massive viewable distances, texture resolutions
bumped up from 32 colors to 32-bit color with billions of shades and game
resolution to scale as high as your monitor can support.
