Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories review

The PSP's best free-roaming crime orgy graduates to the big leagues

Flaws aside, GTA: Vice City Stories still delivers all the fun you'd expect from a GTA title, but what was a technical marvel on the PSP doesn't quite measure up on the console that played host to the state-spanning San Andreas. If you missed it on the PSP (or just hated the controls), then it's absolutely worth grabbing, but don't expect anything revolutionary.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
