Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is an action adventure video game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. The video game was released on 29 October 2002. In order to get a USK 16 rating in Germany the game had to be censored. Due to cero guidelines the game was censored in Japan. Haitian Centers Council and Haitian Americans for Human Rights staged protests over the game's depictions of Haitians, Rockstar eventually bowed to public pressure and censored newer versions of the game in North America.
