The game still remains one of the best GTA games in the entire franchise and is definitely one of the games that paved the way for modern GTA games we know and love today. It’s still a game that you can definitely play today, its graphics might not be as good but the overall story and smoothness of the game can definitely still pass as a modern game. Vice City was based on rea;-world Miami City, it was also heavily influenced my movies such as Scarface, Goodfellas, and even the show Miami Vice. Aside from basing the whole game around the 1980s situation in Miami, the developers also included a ton of fun discoverable Easter eggs for anyone to discover.
Grand Theft Auto Vice City had improved gameplay and better character development and overall flow of the main story as to its predecessor, GTA III. It features a huge open world map, with a ton of different places you could explore.
Within these places Easter eggs were hidden. One cool but creepy Easter egg is that you can sometimes find drowned bodies with feet attached to a block of cement underwater. There are no clues as to who put these bodies here, but it was probably one of the crime syndicates or mafias within the game.
Another weird Easter egg features the Vice Point Langer or the WK Chariot Hotel. You can witness a light show if you stand in front of it between 11:00pm and 12 midnight. I won’t spoil you what the lights form into but I am certain that you will be in for a huge surprise.
Another strange but fun Easter egg involves the moon. If you take out your sniper rifle and shoot the moon, it will grow in size. It will grow larger and larger each time you shoot it, eventually turning back to its original size after a number of times.
If you are a fan of the movie Scarface or have watched it before Vice City has a great Easter egg for you. Scarface was one of the major influences and inspirations for GTA Vice City so Rockstar Games put in this nice nod to the movie. If you go to Apartment 3C in Ocean Beach you can see that this whole apartment is a copy of the apartment in Scarface where Tony’s friend was murdered with a chainsaw. You can find a bloody bathroom, a chainsaw, and two bags of cocaine, as seen in the movie.
If you are hooked and want to have a look at these Easter eggs for yourself, you can get GTA Vice City on various platforms such as PC, mobile and console. You can install it from the respective app stores of your console devices. On PC, you can install it through Steam or through the Rockstar Games launcher. For mobiles simply go to either your Play Store or App Store and install the game from there. You would have to pay a few bucks to get the game but it is definitely worth every penny.
This year marks Grand Theft Auto Vice City’s 17th year since it was released.
