Editorial Reviews: Review
Praised for brilliant scripts and open-ended gameplay, vilified for unapologetic violence and mature themes, Grand Theft Auto has deservedly become one of the most popular game franchises in history. This double pack contains the full versions of both Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto III: Vice City, enhanced for Xbox. Xbox gamers can rejoice that the grand king of video games--The Sopranos with a gamepad--is finally available on the big black box.

Grand Theft Auto
With Grand Theft Auto III Rockstar proves that not all developers are concerned with toning down the violence in their games. This sequel is even more bloody, violent, and sadistic than its popular predecessors, offering up an enormous 3-D city in which nearly any criminal act is possible. Players are free to steal cars, beat up the local population for their money (or weapons), make time with prostitutes, or simply roam to their heart's content. Those seeking more structure can embark on dozens of missions driven by a genuinely interesting crime-story plot or steal cars that let them play minigames. Nab a cop car and you can go on vigilante missions. Grab a cab and you can play a deadly version of Crazy Taxi. Take a fire truck and you can earn money putting out fires. The minigames are a good way to unwind after a particularly difficult mission. With so much to do, the game just never gets boring.

As you'd expect, there are consequences for criminality. As your random acts of mayhem mount up the police start hounding you, eventually calling in SWAT trucks, the FBI, and even the army if you continue down the path of destruction. Shaking these pursuers is easily the most fun part of the game, especially when a bunch of friends are packed in the room to witness your narrow escapes.

Grand Theft Auto III is fine-tuned to near perfection in every category. All the vehicles, from slick sports cars to lumbering dump trucks, handle exactly as you'd expect and smash apart realistically when abused. The three islands in the game are rendered in terrific detail considering their size, and are packed with traffic, pedestrians, and hidden jumps. The audio is equally amazing. Pedestrians talk, cops scream at you, and you can tune in nine different radio stations whenever you are in a car. It all adds up to a monumental achievement: the rare console game for adults that manages to get everything right.--T. Byrl Baker

Grand Theft Auto III: Vice City
How big is this game? Even publicists for other games end up talking about Vice City when they call our office, babbling in the same helplessly intoxicated way that afflicts everyone who plays it. The achievement of Vice City (which, as everyone knows by now, is set in the 1980s and offers an all-new, Miami Vice-inspired story) is not only that it manages to live up to an absurd level of expectation, but that it takes the game places that fans of its predecessor Grand Theft Auto III never dreamed of, and that it achieves this astonishing level of innovation without losing anything that made GTA3 the bestselling PS2 game of all time.

After a brilliant homage to the era of the Commodore 64 in the opening credits, the first thing you'll notice is the improved graphics, which are smoother and more detailed, and--with effects like neon lights reflected on rain-slick streets, and intense Florida sunlight--have a lush, tropical look that immediately gives you a strong sense of place. The architecture is more fabulous by tenfold, with art deco buildings, high-rise hotels, and believably seedy back alleys. The control scheme is essentially the same as in GTA3, but the cars handle much better, and in pedestrian mode there is a new crouch move. You will have access to fast, great-handling cars right away, as opposed to GTA3 which made you unlock the second island before you could get your hands on any respectable wheels. This game has such riches to offer that there is no need to be chintzy with the vehicles.

Cops are more vigilant this time--minor offenses like whacking innocent bystanders will more often than not get you a two-star wanted level--and are harder to elude (though they still can't seem to climb stairs or negotiate sharp turns). So while free-roaming exploration is as fun as ever, there is more incentive to perform the missions instead of randomly raising hell. Not that that's a bad thing: even lazy criminals like myself (in GTA3, I would rather toss hand grenades into traffic than follow orders from some rude Mafia boss) will be quickly caught up in the vivid characters and hilarious, fascinating story, in which you play an acid-washed-jeans-wearing thug named Tommy Vercetti. Where in GTA3 missions were blocky, schematic affairs only nominally connected to the story, this time tasks move the story briskly along and deftly blend cinematics and game action. For example, there is a scene of a character throwing Tommy a gun, at which point you are suddenly thrown back into the action and must make an instant decision about whom to trust and what to do.

There are more, and more detailed, indoor environments, including a hotel, police station, and mall (a slight downside to this is that some of the more elaborate indoor environments require load times). The layout of the city, with tons of backyards, narrow alleys, and fire escapes, encourages creativity when eluding pursuit, as does greater access to rooftops. Get your motorcycle up the fire escape and a whole new world of action is possible, including... well, use your imagination.

This overview barely scratches the surface of the Vice City experience, its colorful explosion of music, clothes, combat, and brilliant voice acting, not to mention the plot twist midway through the game that changes the very nature of the game itself. Though it was the outrageous, amoral violence that got all the press, the essential genius of GTA3 was its intoxicating blend of script and open-ended action. In Vice City this is--to use a cliché that is for once apropos--taken to a whole new level.--David Stoesz

The infamous GTA series doubles up and delivers twice the car-stealing, hood-capping, trash-talking larcenous adventures. Includes Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

5Two GTA games in one great package, Apr 15, 2023
I have owned this game since the day it came out and I still play it on a regular basis. The games are blast to play over and over as well as just messing around seeing what crazy mayhem you can create next. GTA III is probably my favorite of the two but GTA Vice City is great too. Another great thing about the Xbox versions is that they have improved graphics and effects that the PS2 versions did not. The load times are also much improved as well. The only problem that I can find is that sometimes there is a bit of slowdown in certain parts and you can see that the games would look much better if designed from the ground up for the Xbox. Anyways this is a great collection worth getting if you have never played or owned these incredible games before. If you already own both on the PS2, it probably isn't worth buying again but the faster load times and improved graphics are a nice bonus.

4The best of the best!, Apr 4, 2023
Grand Theft Auto has always been a hit on PS2 which includes GTA 1, 2, 3 and Vice City. Now Rockstar has decided that the hit series will make it onto Xbox. YES! This package comes with Grand Theft Auto 3 and Grand Theft Auto Vice City and they are both games that cannot be missed!

Graphics: The graphics in GTA are superb. And whats better is that they are Xbox enhanced making the graphics even better then the ones in the PS2 version. The chracter models are pretty good, not the best, but still very good. The only thing in terms of graphics that might need a little bit of work on before GTA San Andreas comes out for Xbox is the actual background animation. But other then that, the graphics are great!

Gameplay: The gameplay is probobly the best aspect of the entire game! The controls are fairly easy to get used to and there is so much that you can actually do! From random shootings, to cop chases/fights, to even playing basketball! Did i mention.....Uhh, maybe thats not suitable for a review! To wrap the gameplay feature up, it is definetely one of the best out of all the Xbox games and adds to the reasons why you should definetely pick this one up from the shelves!

Audio: The soundtrack in GTA is also great. With songs wih rock/rage rock theme to them, this feature will have you sitting down listening to the music rather then actually playing the game!

The only problem with this game is that there is no online support which i thought was a real bummer!

As a result, this game is DEFINETELY not geared towards kids, however if you are over eighteen and you do not have this game yet, two words, GET IT!

5This Game Rocks!!, Mar 16, 2023
I am a GTA fanatic. I first got into GTA III when my brother bought it for his PS2. I have an XBox, so you just imagine my dismay when it wasn't out on it. Then, the Double Pack became available with both GTA III and Vice City. There is a God.

Both of these games are great. They both can use your original soundtracks if you've downloaded them on your XBox. So, that is a major plus, but the soundtracks on them aren't bad, either.

I favor Vice City over GTA III, but they are equally as fun. Yes, this game is very gory and violent, but that's the beauty of it. You can do things that you can't get away with in real life. No, this game is not for children. I don't know what the big deal is about them. They ARE rated Mature for a reason. Parents are stupid for buying the game for their 10-year-olds. The GTA series tends to draw a lot of unwanted attention, but that just adds to the popularity of the game.

In June, XBoc will receive the "watered-down" version of San Andreas, which will suck because I have played the PS2 version and it is really strong. But, don't let the bad press discourage you from buying this Double Pack. These games are truly works of art.

4Vice City is good, Feb 19, 2023
But I prefer Grand Theft Auto III... Why? Well, the setting
on GA3 to me is just more interesting. It doesn't have some
of the weapons and stuff. And there is no mall to go into.
However, I miss the subways and some of the missions were
alittle more enjoyable. It's really tough because other
than these things it's basically the same game. The GTA3
was more fun to me.

5Your girlfriend will mad at you , Jan 26, 2023
Most church going people of all faiths believe in a burning hell. Most people of other faiths believe that if you don't except the Lord Jesus and be baptized, you end up in a burning eternal hell's fire. Is this true? Most Primitive Baptist believe so. That the non elect people, end up in this lake of fire. Which they call hell. Is this true? I feel that both are wrong. What does the bible teach about this subject of hell and a burning fire? I am going to try and stay with what most of the Primitive Baptist believe on this subject. I feel that they are wrong in what they teach about the hells in the bible. I hope to show you by the word of God. What the bible teaches about this word hell.

Most of the Primitive Baptist preachers and brethren, won't take time to study this word hell, to see what the true teaching is all about. These hells have been laid to the non elect by the Primitive Baptist, for many years and have look down on other Primitive Baptist, that see these hells as a timely judgment to the people in the true church.

Grand Theft Auto III is my favorite of the two games in this Double Pack. I guess i favor III because it reminds me of cities here on the east coast of USA. Don't get me wrong...Vice City is a fine bit of code as well. I just like my crime spree's to centered around the grimey, brick-laden, urine-filled alleys of the east coast. Its more realistic to me.
