Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has described the launch issues that plagued last year's release of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy as a 'glitch' that has since been 'resolved'.

Then that must be one train wreck of a glitch.

All they had to do was follow the damn train!

The patch fixed a ton, but it's still far from even equaling the original, let alone being the definitive versions. So many missing and off details that it's painfully obvious to anyone who spent any real time playing the originals.

VenomUK117d ago

Do you know if there are plans to release any more significant patches such as native 4k version?

isarai117d ago

I mean from the sounds of this, probably not. Sounds like they think it's "done"

MrBeatdown117d ago

I 100%'d GTA3 and Vice City and I can't say there is a lot I noticed that was inferior to the originals.

GTA3 wasn't too impressive, but I thought Vice City looked and played surprisingly well.

They aren't perfect, but I think they're worthwhile as a fan.

DogJosha117d ago

How are they worthwhile when the originals are still playable and are superior?

MrBeatdown117d ago (Edited 117d ago )

It's called an opinion, pal.

Ask fewer stupid questions, and maybe make a case for the originals that actually offers some substance.

Pekka117d ago

@MrBeatdown: Well, for example "Definitive Edition" is missing 29 songs. So, 2 hours of music is just cut out because Rockstar doesn't want to pay for rights.

MrBeatdown116d ago

That's been the case for every version released for the last ten years or more. It sucks, but doesn't affect the playability.

You're only getting those songs if you play 20 year old versions with graphics made for a CRT tv. I'll take HD graphics, improved aiming, better textures, and auto saves over the soundtrack missing from the originals.

It absolutely hasn't been resolved. Some stuff is fixed. But there's nothing "Definitive" about these versions. They have terrible replacement effects, or are missing effects entirely. Way too many textures that after being cleaned up look horrible compared to the originals.

Definitive isn't supposed to mean "ok", it's supposed to be the best version available. Yet the originals with mods look significantly better. You choose between 60fps and *slightly* better graphics/lighting. These are remasters of PS2 games. If you can't do it all at 60fps that says a lot about how much optimization went into these.

jeromeface117d ago

that's because they used the mobile versions as a base.. not the ps2

porkChop117d ago

Yeah, unfortunately. What a shame.

galgor118d ago

A glitch?! What a slap in the face to consumers. These games were a rush job and a cash grab - nothing more. The issues haven't been resolved and they are an insult to the games' legacy by calling them "definitive".
