* {{Prequel}}: Not only is this a prequel to ''Vice City'', it's chronologically the first game in the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' continuity. It takes place 17 years prior to the events of the original GTA III, which is the last game in the series in terms of chronology.

* WideOpenSandbox: Not to the same degree as ''GTA: San Andreas'' or ''GTA IV'', in part due to the somewhat restricted geography of Vice City, but also because once you start "Empire building" you will constantly have to deal with gangs trying to take over your turf, reducing the opportunity to explore and do stuff on your own. [[spoiler: Although once you take over every single Empire Building in the town, the gang attacks will stop and you can explore the city without worrying about the other gangs.]]

* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: The mission "Brawn Of The Dead", which has you acting as a stuntman in a zombie movie that is an obvious ShoutOut to ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978''.

* RunningGag: Some missions involving [[TheLoad Lance]] usually end with Lance riding a vehicle alone and without even bother to offer Vic to ride with him, much to the latter's chagrin. This is PlayedForLaughs, because most of these usually happen right before the "Mission Passed" screen appear.
