Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
By Rockstar Games
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Welcome to the 1980s.
From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile as Grand Theft Auto returns.
Vice City is a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, and is the most varied, complete and alive digital city ever created. Combining non-linear gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and are given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.
What's New in Version 1.01
Earlier today I realized this classic game had a Mac port, and at less than ten bucks I had to buy it. I’m glad I did - I’ve been playing it for hours, and so far it’s flawless, smooth, and fun on my rMBP13. I’m going to buy GTAIII once I’ve beaten this one. I loved it on the PS2, and it’s better still on the Mac. (For comparison, I had the Windows port and didn’t really enjoy it - perhaps the notion of booting into Windows for a game was too bothersome.)
I haven’t encountered any bugs yet. I love the responsiveness playing with a gamepad, which contrasts with some of the reviews that said they couldn’t get a gamepad to work. If it matters, I’m using a “steelseries” gamepad.
Thanks for your time!
WOW! Just got it and is bringing me old good memories. I remeber when was spending endless hours playing this game when was released a decade ago. Since I stop dedicating my life to console gaming and switched to the computing industry with Macs I felt a little empty in the gaming area because there's not that many "open-word" games available in the Mac App Store from the original publishers like RockStar Games. But now things has being changing lately and good games are hitting the Mac App Store. Thank you RockStar Games! I hope you bring the GTA 5 to the Mac App Store. I will definitely will be looking forward to it.
Note: And please, update more frequently your Apps here… Thanks :-)
Has Audio Issues
This download has audio issues which have not yet been fixed. You will need to fix these yourself after downloading this game. (audio issues in my experience, include: 1.) No tire squealing sound while driving a vehicle 2.) Buzzing/Distortion sound in LEFT speaker during cutscenes and some other parts) Other than that, this game is great. 3 stars since audio is a crucial part of any game and since its so tedious to fix. I’ve also downloaded GTA: 3 on the App Store and it has the same audio issues mentioned here.
