How good is the PS2 port of Vice City Stories? I read about its reception and it sounds bad. What's your opinion?

It's awesome, mentioned it in my reply here:

Another killer soundtrack loaded with 80's music, and challenges galore.

There is also a big catch/challenge to this game, and you should read about
it in the VCS thread. When I went for 100% completion I found out one of the
main tricks to controlling the empires/business. Many bailed on it, and that may
be why it got bad reviews, they couldn't figure out how to control the empires.

The game is well worth whatever you pay, and maybe the toughest GTA game ever.
[Keeping in mind I have multiple 100% completions on them all except this one]

I happen to like 80s music. happy.gif
I can't recall hearing anything about the business, so I don't think that's the only reason some gave it poor reviews. I think it had to do with the PS2 port.
But anyway I'm alot more tempted to buy it now.

Did you refer to the empire building topic? Not so much info in that 6-post thread, but maybe the issue isn't so big afterall.

That's what killer usually means dude. Especially with killer 80's metal. VRock!
VCS is the first GTA game to feature a Dokken song. (George Lynch, killer guitarist)
If memory serves me, as it usually does, there is also a Ratt song. (Warren DiMartini, killer guitarist)

Not the building, the empires you create. Gangs keep attacking them,
and that was what many of my friends found to be a problem.
In the end, you just have to wipe the gangs all out. I thought it was great.
But then after 100% completion there is no one to fight with anymore. XD.png

Well, you can try and spawn some by driving their vehicles around....

VCS Note: One of the funniest radio commercials EVER is featured in VCS.
It runs on Espantoso and features Jack Howitzer. The commercial has the song "Little Lacy Surprise"....
In GTA:IV, it is a 5-star felony to go onto the internet and go on the little lacy pageant website.
