Vice City and GTA III censored?! - San Andreas uncensored
I bought Vice City, GTA III and San Andreas(Not the Rock Star pack). San Andreas is uncensored but My Vice City seems to be censored. There's no blood at all.So it seems GTA III and Vice City are the only ones censored for me.......I live in Austria= PEGI(Pan European Game Information)= All games are uncensored.

Btw, censorship includes:
- complete lack of blood effects
- no dismemberment
- unability to hit/kick lying characters
- no money appearing from dead bodies
- no rampages
- two missions not available: "Messing with the Man" and "Dirty Lickin's"

My copy (I'm in the US) of Vice City is uncensored as well as GTA III. Maybe try emailing Steam support and asking them why you have the censored version.

One note: I bought my copies several years ago, before Rockstar removed some of the songs from Vice City (ie. Micheal Jackson "Billy Jean"), so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Yeah, it's an issue with the game. It checks very specific language settings on your computer and if those are set to anything but English, it'll remove the gore and blood even if the game itself is in English.

I suggest just getting a patched .exe on the internet and replacing the main .exe with that. The patches are called bloodpatches so if you look for that, you'll find the right thing. You'll still have to play the game itself in English, but you at least won't have to change your PC's language settings. Rampages and everything will work but you might have to start a new game because it won't work with save files made when playing the censored version.

It's a huge hassle. Rockstar really ♥♥♥♥ed up there. It frustrated me a lot but the problem is fixable and the game is great, so I got over that annoyance quickly.

Sounds like you got the censored german versions.
Everything thats missing had to be removed from the games in Germany in order to avoid getting banned.
Heres the censorship report for GTA3:
