Gamespot Review Vice City Stories

By Chris | 4th Nov 2006 at 22:39 GMT in Vice City Stories | 4 Comments

Gamespot have finally posted their review of Vice City Stories, and are probably the last of the big gaming sites to do so. They gave the game a final score of 8.4 / 10, a respectable score for any portable game.

The Good: Vice City is just as gaudy and cheesy as you remember it; fantastic soundtrack and radio dialogue; longer missions; more multiplayer modes.

The Bad: Some control issues with the combat, especially in melee; no real forward progress for the series to be found here--old issues still remain; texture popping is still extremely prevalent.

Many of you will probably be too busy playing the game to be bothered reading another review of it, but the link is below if you wish to read it in full. If you need help in Vice City Stories, or just want to discuss the game, be sure to post on our forums.

What do they mean with this?

It means for example when you're driving along, textures won't be loaded properly, and then suddenly they'll appear, and you'll realise you're about to crash into a tree. Or something along those lines, basically saying it happens a lot and it's quite annoying.

That made me fail missions and after about 15 minutes of playing it really got anoying.
