Grand Theft Auto IV: Vice City is a game in the Grand Theft Auto series, it acts as the direct sequel to GTA IV and a prequel to GTA V.


The beginning of the game takes place in Liberty City and some parts of Vice City during November, 2011 and the moves onto the year 2011 in Vice City.


The gameplay in GTA IV: Vice City, is similar to the gameplay in GTA V, which evolves nearly every mechanic that was in the previous Grand Theft Auto games. As far as driving goes, the vehicles have been greatly improved, with Rockstar running more complex physics on them. The cars can even hold to the ground slightly better. The driving mechanics feel more like a racing game, particularly the Midnight Club series, compared to Grand Theft Auto IV's rocky, boat-like handling system. The shooting mechanics are better in terms of the feel of the mechanics and larger compared to the melee mechanics in the game, but that doesn't mean that the melee combat won't be fun, as it as been improved over the previous titles as well.

There are many unique features in the game, one of those features is that when the players are playing as one of five protagonists in the game, the other two (Donatello and Bonnie Abarca) are living out their lives as mafia bosses, the other two (Niko Bellic and Henry Deus) are living their lives as hired guns, while the other one (Johnny Klebitz) is leading a gang and you will be surprised by what you find the characters doing when you switch back into them. Another unique feature is that the character swapping feature is executed in a Google Earth-styled manner and was displayed during a Game Informer demo, which was showed to have ran smoothly and without lag.

The game features a large variety of weapons, like the Norinco Type 56-2 assault rifles with sound suppressors, mounted flashlights, olive drab polymer furniture, and side-folding stocks. There is now the option to mount attachments onto various different guns, each one affecting the performance. Melee weapons like the nightstick and the golf club that weren't present in Grand Theft Auto IV have also returned to Grand Theft Auto IV: Vice City

it also has more vehicles than in any other Grand Theft Auto game to date, with a variety of vehicles, including airplanes, helicopters, cars, utility vehicles, emergency service cars, motorcycles, and jet skis. Players are able to fly planes, which impossible in Grand Theft Auto IV because of the size of the map, but the feature is now in Grand Theft Auto IV: Vice City because of the much larger map.

The game also comprises mostly of planned out rescues, investigations and a take-down.


Before the game begins, the player must choose a prologue in order to start the game.
