What's Bigger

20 posts in this topic

Actually, both cities are the same from my viewpoint. Liberty City isn't as detailed as Vice City is. Vice City doesn't contain any other transport (e.g Train, Subway) and Liberty City does. There's lot's of things you could compare with the two cities.

Just because Liberty City has three islands and Vice City has two doesn't mean Liberty City is bigger. Before the release of Vice City, I heard it was going to be twice the size of Liberty City. Why would Rockstar make a game at that time with a city smaller than their previous game?

Density. SA had more open areas whereas GTAV's liberty is supposed to have more interiors.

I think Vice was bigger than Liberty (GTA3), but you could get around in helicopters so it made it seem smaller. The 2 main

Islands were longer.

Which is why I said "at that time".

People say that Vice City is bigger than Liberty, that it's an optical illusion. How? Liberty City is clearly bigger than Vice.

Vice City is bigger than Liberty, it's been said before countless times, and mind you, for a reason.

My Dick....

It doesn't really matter about how big the map size is, its the size of MB the game needs, GTA III Liberty City needs 700 MB on the computer while VC's Vice City needs 1.25 GB (Without Direct X), with Direct X it's 915 MB. I can't compare the Stories, but I'd say it'll be about 200MB more each.

With this Vice is bigger

Liberty City is bigger, because that have 3 islands. Vice City have 2 islands. -_-

yes but liberty cities islands are actually pretty small. vice cities 2 main islands are huge.

i would say that vice city is about 20% bigger.

Although this topic is pretty much dead, I will post something about it.

Vice City is bigger than Liberty City if you think about it Vice City has 3 Islands (West Island, Middle Island (Starfish, Prawn & Leaf Links & East Island). The bridges are indeed long (One bridge runs from east to West) some take minutes to cross whereas in Liberty City it takes a short amount of time to get from North Portland to South Portland. It takes just slightly more time to get to North Vice Point to South Ocean Beach. Therefore Vice City is longer Width-Wise and Higher Length-Wise.

This is what I believe.

Liberty did seem to feel a lot bigger but there wasn't much in it.

Literally as well, it was a bit bland and dull looking back on it but let's not forget it was 7 years ago and excellent yadda yadda.

Liberty city had way more roads then Vice City did, it also included train roads and subways, however, Vice City has way more off-road land and open spaces but just enough road for a good police chase around town. In many ways, Liberty City does give off the illusion that it is larger then Vice City but Vice city does take a while to travel in too, so i would say Vice is just a fraction larger the Liberty City. So in some ways one can be bigger then the other.

Vice City is larger. This is because of the fact that you can use choppers that makes it seem smaller. Also how long does it take you to get across the biggest beach near the hotel. It takes some time right. Yes, and how long does it take to go from side to side using open- spaced roads in LC not that long.
