Decent Strategy for the Game...
By Katie "Dark Musashi" - November 1, 2002
This book has perfect strategies for every mission...The maps are very detailed, and locations for hidden packages are included, as well as side missions and complete lists of rewards you can get in the game. The only problem I had with this guide was that it does not contain cheat codes. Cheats can usually be located somewhere online, but I was still a little disappointed as the main reason I bought the book was for the cheat codes that they said were in there. However, don't let that stop you from getting the guide, it still help get you through the game really well and it has cool pictures too! Not to mention the full weapons and vehicles section, character profiles, and spoilers if you want them. Another success by BradyGames!

a great game needs a great guide

Vice City is such a great game that you have to wonder if any strategy guide could live up to it. Plus it is a fairly simple game to understand and play. Some games, like Metal Gear, require the guide, others, like Grand Theft Auto, don't really need it. Now, I've only skimmed through it. I love this game so much that I don't want to spoil it by giving away the upcoming missions and actions. It has a nice intro to the game, the characters, the weapons, and the cars. I find that after you finish a few missions, it is good to go back and look at what the guide says, just in case you missed something. I haven't. What it does have that I like a lot is maps to where all the weapons can be found, where the hidden packages are, where the rampages are, and where you can find body armor, police bribes, and life. (Call it cheating, but that is what I primarily use the guide for, plus this game is so much fun, even reading about it is fun) Those maps alone make the guide a valuable addition to... read more
