Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is the sixth installment of the franchise that has come out in 2002. Apart from San Andreas, Vice City is one of the most successful titles of the series that it's still worth playing even now. However, people are more into the latest title - GTA V which is better in almost every aspect: including visuals and gameplay experience.

But what if we can combine the story and the city of Vice City with the stunning graphics of GTA V? That's not a dream anymore, as the modder Lunchxbles has released his creative works namely Vice City Remastered! It's a mod that brings the vibrant Vice City alongside the main bad boy Tommy Vercetti.

The visual of Vice City has never look looked more terrific than this ever in its existence, which you can have a brief look in the short video below:

Relive our good old experience of Vice City!

Vice City looks visually stunning with its first release at the time that we can barely run it with Full HD resolution, all settings max and still being able to play smoothly. Over times, it has seen numerous mods that enhance the visuals of the game and adds more stuff, but it has completely stopped when GTA V starts to soar in popularity. As a result, we could see how Vice City should look with modern technologies in GTA 5.

But the story changes completely with Luchxble's new mod - Vice City Remastered mod for Grand Theft Auto V - which has redraw the whole city in modern visual standards. You can already see how impressive it is in the trailer, but here are the complications on what's new in this mod.
