Welcome to Vice City. Welcome to the 1980s...Having just made it back onto the streets of Liberty City after a long stretch in maximum security, Tommy Vercetti is sent to Vice City by his old boss, Sonny Forelli. They were understandably nervous about his reappearance in Liberty City, so a trip down south seemed like a good idea. But all does not go smoothly upon his arrival in the glamorous, hedonistic metropolis of Vice City. He's set up and is left with no money and no merchandise. Sonny wants his money back, but the biker gangs, Cuban gangsters, and corrupt politicians stand in his way. Most of Vice City seems to want Tommy dead. His only answer is to fight back and take over the city himself. But all work and no play does indeed make Tommy a dull boy. Thankfully, for the action man, or outdoors type, there's tons of fun things to do and adventures to be had in the aptly named Vice City... guaranteed. And for the secretive or creepy type, it is a place full of surprises, a place where you'll constantly be surprised by the vivacious, fun-loving types who live there and the things you can discover.
