Whether you're a fan of the games from the Grand Theft Auto series, you've probably heard of San Andreas, a real icon within the world of action games. Well, this title didn't appear from out of the blue and plenty of its success was due to the previous installment of the Rockstar saga: this GTA Vice City.
A journey to the Vice City of the 1980s'
The story and context in which GTA Vice City - Grand Theft Auto is developed will seem very familiar if you've watched movies of the likes of Scarface or series such as Miami Vice, settings that have later been recreated very well in Narcos.
Well, this isn't Miami, it's Vice City and you're a gangster that has to make his way in the world of crime to reach the top. For such purpose, you'll explore a huge open world full of aesthetical cliches that are very usual in this context: impossible hairstyles, cream-color suits, shovels of cocaine... All the latter, in a perfectly recreated city where we'll be able to visit its beaches, marshes, posh neighborhoods, run-down quarters, and where we'll interact with different characters that will help us to fulfill our missions.
The most depraved version of the 80s'.
