GTA Vice City, like all great games, has a fair share of divisive missions that get fans excited on GTA forums and platforms like Reddit.
Even nearly two decades after its release, GTA Vice City remains one of the most popular games of all time. The internet is full of discussion about which missions sucked and which ones tied them up towards the end.
This article takes a look at 5 of the most controversial missions in GTA Vice City.
The 5 most divisive missions of GTA Vice City
5) Loose ends
Loose Ends is the last job in GTA Vice City and, as such, one of the most difficult. This task is entrusted to Tommy Vercetti by Mr. Black, who knows of an exchange at the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Company premises. While the overall mission is extremely addicting and full of interesting objectives, clearing the ice cream factory grounds while trying to battle wave after wave of insulted agents is not an easy task. Definitely one of the trickiest missions in GTA Vice City.
4) Death Row
Lance is arguably the coolest character from GTA Vice City (before he decided to stab Tommy in the back), but who told him that being kidnapped by a bunch of virtual thugs was a good idea?
Lance is being held in the junkyard and the goal is to save him and get him to the hospital as soon as possible while he tries to attack Diaz’s boys.
Not exactly Tommy’s idea of fun, but when you’re friends with a wimp like Lance, such inconvenience shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.
3) Bombs gone
Given that the most controversial missions in GTA Vice City had something to do with crazy little ramps, it’s no surprise that Bombs Away, a mission that involved flying a lazy helicopter, was a headache.
2) Keep your friends close
As the final mission in GTA Vice City, “Keep Your Friends Close” is one of the most frustrating missions in the game, filled to the brim with a series of incredibly difficult objectives.
One of the objectives of the mission is to face a wave of mafia thugs trying to steal your money, kill Vance the black sheep and end the story once and for all by killing Sonny Forelli.
Keeping Your Friends Close is one of the most exciting and controversial missions in GTA Vice City that players won’t soon forget.
1) demolition man
It’s impossible to talk about the toughest missions in GTA Vice City without mentioning Demolition Man at least once. This mission makes players forget why they love GTA Vice City in the first place. That is the level of frustration and division it creates among players.
The aim of the mission is to place four bombs in four different locations on a construction site while avoiding all sorts of dangerous weapons that are being fired by the construction workers. The mobile version makes Demolition Man a lot less challenging, but the PC version makes players almost give up on the game.
