Rockstar breaks down the urban world of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

In the third and final part of a behind-the-scenes look at Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, which Rockstar Games released today, the company focused on the making of Vice City itself.

Videos and images offer a glance at exterior and interior environments for some of Vice City's most notable buildings, such as the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Company's factory and the Malibu Club, from wire frame models to in-game renders. Other videos include wire frame versions of entire sections of Vice City, along with images to show off the finished product, and models of vehicles like the trusty Maverick helicopter and the '50s-style Hermes sedan.

The series' first part examined the process of building the game's animations with motion capture, while the second centered on audio, including Vice City's iconic '80s radio stations. Rockstar originally put together the behind-the-scenes content nearly a decade ago for an exhibit at the London Museum of Design.
