As with everything involved with [RoviLink="GW"]Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the game's soundtrack is epic in scope and incredibly detailed. Though countless games have offered soundtracks, [RoviLink="GW"]GTA: Vice City offers a unique twist on the format: its soundtrack has seven volumes, one apiece for [RoviLink="GW"]Vice City's radio stations. Though games such as [RoviLink="GW"]Jet Grind Radio and [RoviLink="GW"]Jet Set Radio Future also revolved around the concept of soundtrack-as-radio station, [RoviLink="GW"]GTA: Vice City's soundtrack is the most ambitious -- and impressive -- realization of this idea yet, offering DJs with distinctive personalities, tailored track listings, and realistic bumpers, voice-overs, and commercials. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Vol. 5: Wildstyle presents Mr. Magic, a pioneering hip-hop head who plays an authentic set of rap, hip-hop, and electro from the '80s, the era in which [RoviLink="GW"]GTA: Vice City is set. The volume's standout tracks include Run DMC's "Rock Box," Herbie Hancock's "Rockit," Mantronix' "Bassline," Cybotron's "Clear," Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force's "Looking for the Perfect Beat," and Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks." Actually, trying to pick highlights on this collection is something of a fool's errand, since this volume of the soundtrack is probably the most consistent and inventive in the set, and indeed a very respectable collection of hip-hop and electro on its own terms, with artists like Grandmaster Flash, Zapp & Roger, Davy DMX, Man Parrish, and Whodini rounding out the album. Likewise, the commercials for "Degenatron" an early home video game system, and "Maibatsu Thunder," a Japanese car, are among the best parodies of the soundtrack series. For [RoviLink="GW"]GTA addicts, there's an added incentive to buy the soundtracks: each disc comes with bonus multimedia content (Windows and Mac compatible), including wallpaper, screen shots, a screen saver, a movie clip, and most importantly, a special cheat code unique to each volume of the soundtrack. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Vol. 5: Wildstyle's cheat code unlocks the first Weapon Cheat, which provides various useful weapons. As with this volume's music, it's one of the best cheats of the series. ~ Heather Phares
