GANGSTAR: MIAMI VINDICATION desperately wants to be confused with Grand Theft Auto. The game apes many of the best known characteristics of the Rockstar Games title, but fails to get the most important right: Story. GTA typically comes with an engaging plotline, but there’s nothing memorable here. The main character is a compilation of bad-guy clichés, stealing cars, urinating out in the open, and talking tough. It’s far from the worst clone on the market, but if you want to play Grand Theft Auto, just buy the real thing.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
