In terms of gameplay, and graphics, both LCS and VCS were the same, only a few features were added to VCS, yet it wasn't as great.

I thought they were a step back (graphics), they looked pretty crappy on my 43" Sony. Dark, poor contrast & it made
it a little harder to play. VC just looked a little brighter. On a PSP it probably looked good in low res but the PS2 port
used the same low res graphics & it would have looked a lot better if they just used the original VC graphics.

Biggest difference was that Vic could swim & there was more for sidework. Every Empire business have missions based
on the kind of business it was, there are the beach missions, Air Ambulance & heli firefighter & they have a "bookmark"
feature that kept track of every 5 levels in a side mission. Do 20 levels, save your game & come back & you start at
level 21.

Overall VCS was a good buy because the only complaint I have is the graphics, everything else was good & it released
for $20 (same as LCS). Would have liked to see a PC port.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

I found the graphics of LCS and VCS poor in contrast to III and VC. I put it down to being a port like Urban. It was a GTA game and that was enough for me, I enjoyed playing it. If the graphics were better I would probably play it more often. The main reason I liked it is it gave me a chance to return to VC but gave me new stuff to do. Didn't hurt that it was cheap too :P

There's no major differences between LCS and VCS when it comes to graphics, but VCS had much better gameplay improvements.

Liberty City Stories used the graphics engine games like Vice City and III used, while Vice City Stories used the same graphics engine San Andreas used. So, graphics in "SanAn" and VCS are more 3-D-esque than the other III era GTA games.

Not sure if you're aware that III, VC and SA ALL used renderware? (albeit modified each time)

Answering to first post:

Vice City has the better overall storyline atmosphere. But once you beat the game, there is not much to do except boost your pilot ranking and criminal rating etc. Although this is my favorite GTA for some reason.

Vice City Stories has a great storyline, but not quite as good. Though, the missions are more challenging than VC. I love the empire building feature and swimming, more combat moves, phil collins, more planes and helicopters and the slightly better soundtrack make VCS soundtrack even more amazing!

These games are both great!
The main difference from VC to VCS is the game's engine and more features like swimming, cycling, more interors, the buildings light up and look very nice, etc.

VCS is my the GTA I hate the most, after LCS. It had more stuff to do than in VC, but the storyline was kinda boring in VCS.

Is Vista bad or are you just stupid?

Argh I loathed VCS, so many glitches and bugs in my game it was ridiculus. It was too cartoony and didn't have the same feel as VC did. I just stand by it was lame and I have never completed it as I couldn't be bothered in the end.

Vice City's story was better, along with the characters(even the ones that returned in VCS I liked them better in VC). I saw a video review for VCS and the reviewer said it was like they got a writer from the Lifetime network to write the script for the game. I liked that cause it was so close to what I had thought when i first played it. Vic is a kind of annoying and contradictory character in my opinion. He doesnt work for me. And the things most of the characters say are more stupid to me than funny. VCS is an ok game but it's at the bottom of my list. One good thing though is there is more gameplay after finishing the main story than there was in VC.

Vice City Stories isn't as great as one could think about returning to Vice.

Though it had radical changes (more neon lighting, more side missions, swimming, etc.), it had big time disappointments. Like the others said, the storyline was weak, weaker than LCS. The ending is too damn easy. I mean, this could be the easiest mission. The graphics were a disappointment: cartoony to the extent that it was TOO unrealistic. Returning characters are worse than their original counterparts, especially Lance Vance. Damn.

VC>VCS.

Well said, I seriously think there's no reason to get VCS, if you really wish to get a portable gta game go get Chinatown Wars or LCS.

Wow. I actually really enjoyed VCS. Liked it more than VC, mainly because I didn't like VC's controls, but still, I love both games. As for VCS's storyline, GTA never has been known for it's STORYLINE imo so I don't know why VCS's storyline is so bad. :P Graphics weren't amazing on either, but that didn't change anything for me.

Well of course VCS had worse graphics on ps2, it was a psp port. I liked them both but for some reason i hated starting in Little Havana instead of the other island.

I liked VC more.

VCS adds a lot of stuff to do after finishing the game. In VC you don't get to do much stuff after completing the game, but It still is my favorite GTA.

Although VCS had a graphical improvement, It was still dissapointing. The storyline wasn't as good as the original VC, and it had few missions. I would have forgiven that, but they were too damn easy, specially after you get the minigun. But the game was cheap, and fun for a while. Also I always hated that you start on the Little Havana island, instead of the Washington Beach island.
Something goes here.
