Keeping up the momentum with another selection of cheap games as Rockstar Week draws to a close, Steam are now offering GTA: Vice City for just £1.49. This is a superb deal which beats the next best price (£.6.99 from Shopto) by £5.49. But get in there quick as this deal expires at 9pm tonight.
Although it might be a lot smaller than the likes of San Andreas and even GTA 3, Vice City is a title bursting with character and quality content. Amalgamating different elements of all various Hollywood classics like Scarface, Carlito's Way, Miami Vice and many more, the game provides a vivid explosion of characters, great 80s music, clothes, killer combat and great voice acting. The player assumes the role of Tommy Vercetti (voiced by Ray Liotta) who, after being double-crossed during a drugs deal, settles in Vice City in a bid to seek out his boss’s lost money – and, while he’s at it, take the whole place over.
One of the great things about Vice City and also San Andreas, and something which Rockstar choose to leave out of GTAIV, is the way it’s possible to take over your own businesses and expand your criminal empire. There are also loads of side-quests and challenges to complete, which go a long way in keeping you entertained once you’re done with the main story. Vice City’s 80s soundtrack has also got to be greatest of any GTA title - or game for that matter - and does an excellent job setting the tone. In fact, for £1.49, I’d say it’s worth it just for the soundtrack alone.
