Many of you will no doubt have completed the main storyline of Vice City Stories by now, or are near to finishing it. A lot of you may want to play the game to is full extent and gain 100% completion. To help you in remembering exactly what things you have left to do, I have produced a checklist for you to print out and tick off everything you've done.

The checklist is currently the most in-depth and detailed available on the web. In the .zip file I have included both .doc and .pdf formats. If the colour or bordering looks a bit messed up, don't worry, as it should look absolutely fine when printed out on to paper. At this point in time there may be a few inaccuracies regarding side missions, so be sure to let me know if anything is wrong and I'll fix it a.s.a.p. Also keep checking back here for updates as we're hoping to release maps of all 99 red balloons, rampages, unique jumps and other interesting things.

On a sidenote, I've also added and updated my Liberty City Stories 100% Checklist for anybody needing this.

Gamespot Review Vice City Stories

Gamespot have finally posted their review of Vice City Stories, and are probably the last of the big gaming sites to do so. They gave the game a final score of 8.4 / 10, a respectable score for any portable game.

The Good: Vice City is just as gaudy and cheesy as you remember it; fantastic soundtrack and radio dialogue; longer missions; more multiplayer modes.
The Bad: Some control issues with the combat, especially in melee; no real forward progress for the series to be found here--old issues still remain; texture popping is still extremely prevalent.

Many of you will probably be too busy playing the game to be bothered reading another review of it, but the link is below if you wish to read it in full. If you need help in Vice City Stories, or just want to discuss the game, be sure to post on our forums.

Today Vice City Stories is officially out in Europe, although some people have been getting their hands on the game early. I now have a copy myself which means I can start getting a lot more content up on the site.

The first page I've made is currently the only page on the web right now where you'll find the complete playlists for each radio station in Vice City Stories, and includes the logos of each station. You can check out the radio stations page for all the info you need on the soundtrack, which of course is currently available on Urge.com, and will be coming to iTunes later this month.

Stay tuned for more Vice City Stories content coming soon!

UK gaming site Eurogamer have put up their review of Vice City Stories today, just one day before the game's official release in the country.

They pretty much talk about the same things as in reviews we've seen from other websites, and also pick up on the same flaws they've found in the game. In conclusion they deduce that Vice City Stories is still one of the best games on the PSP right now. Eurogamer gave the game a final rating of 8 / 10, an excellent score any game developer should be proud of, especially when we consider this is a handheld game.
