    Fantastic!
    If you loved the first one you'll take this one home to meet the folks!

    Seems they've just added everything you wished you could do in the first one!

    The music is great : real 80s pop pap tunes (Jan Hammer , mister mister!)

    I was playing it and thinking how much the main character sounded like Ray Liotta....It IS Ray Liotta !
    Voice talent is great! Spot the real celebs!

    Motorbikes are great. Go to nightclubs start fights and get beaten up by knuckle duster weilding bouncers!

    The cops threw a stinger in front of my car and blew out my tyres! ( didn't stop me though just took out a few more pedestrians as a result!)

    superb... although I did spend a couplel of minutes trying to get the game to use the albums on my hard-drive for the radio when before I remembered this wasn't on my Xbox!

    The voice acting is superb throughout the game, i believe the guy from Twin Peaks (Kyle somethingorother) also has done a voice.

    Also recognised that one of the actors in the opening sonny cinematic also did the voice of the don in the PC game mafia

    I look forward to next month.

    I'm doing the wise thing and not buying this game yet. I have an extremely important deadline at the end of the month and this game would guarantee me my P45.

    Looks like you'll have to anyway, everywere has sold out.

    Ordered it from play last week, thought if its not here today i'll buy it from game and take it back when mine comes. SOLD OUT in game:mad: , then get an e-mail from play saying the suppliers haven't got enough and they might have it in next week:mad: .

    Oh well.

    Anyone else having trouble getting it.

    haven't got this yet (trying to finish all my old games before buying any new ones, and still haven't finished GTA3 yet), but love how the release of GTA Vice City brings gaming back on the news and highlights just how much the popular media know about videogames.

    Switch on Breakfast TV this morning, "Parents in America are trying to ban this game... Go and read a book instead.." usual stuff, then switch on Five Live in the car this evening and they are stoll on about it... same old same old, "violent game given X certificate but how can we really stop kids playing it".

    Add in a bit of "video games make more than movies" spin and we've got videogames (again) corrupting the kids and turning them all into murdering gangster wannabes.

    The conspiracy theorists out there might start to think that the BBC et al like to get their teeth into these good anti-videogame stories cause when we are playing videogames we aren't watching the telly...

    great game, great fun, picked it up today and launched into a 6 hour session, so much fun and Ive only completed the first 5 or so missions. The thing I love about it is you can just go a wondering and all of a sudden you are involved in something crazy which can last ages, not part of the storyline, just part of Vice City life ... although cars / bikes / planes / boats are fun, try walking around for a few hours ... the amount of stuff you will discover will be worth it ....

    monkey

    [oh and i love the fact they kept all the really good bits from the first one ; ie : getting back some health :) ]

    You have to go back to the hotel, and walk into the tape.
