Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is an action-adventure game that was first released in 2002. It is the sixth installation in the Grand Theft Auto series of games, and it is the second game in the series to be released in 3D. The game is set in the 1980s in the fictional Vice City. The story is centered on Tommy Vercetti, a hitman who has just gotten out of prison.
In the game, players must complete missions in order to progress through the story. As more missions are completed, more locations become available. Players are free to drive around the city if they are not doing a mission. Like other Grand Theft Auto games, useful items are spread around the city for the player to find. These items are mostly packages and weapons that are useful for the character. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, players are now able to buy properties in the city. Properties include hideouts and businesses that are used as fronts for illegal activities. In addition to the main missions, there are also side missions where players can get rewards after completion.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City also features over a hundred vehicles. These include cabs, muscle cars, boats, motorbikes, and helicopters.
