Wow, Looks Like The Busted GTA Trilogy Is Better On Mobile

The Definitive Editions of GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas look better than ever according to fans

-Foxtrot164d ago

Probably because it looked like it was made for mobile

Profchaos164d ago

I've checked it out and there's a toggle there for original lighting when that's on you get the sun saturation back orange hues of San Andreas and tons more atmosphere in vc.

Seems to be a huge factor you lose dynamic lights and the overly out of the box he engine feel and the whole thing seems more artistically driven.

I hope this comes to the actual console and ps release eventually

Better to enjoy the games on PS2 least they weren't a pile of shit.

Out of curiosity what is the issue with this trilogy. I was looking to buy it cause san andreas is still my favorite and I've been itching for it. Is it broken?

PhillyDonJawn162d ago

The put little effort into the remaster. It's more of a port than anything. The graphics are barely any better while the colors make it look kinda cartoony

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is Still Not up to Standard Two Years Later

Worse still though, it appears as though The Trilogy has been abandoned by Rockstar and Take Two Interactive.

By today's standards, I'd argue that being half assed, having a couple patches, and being abandoned and ultimately left still half assed is infact up to standards.

Yesterday I watched a YouTube video that said the new Netflix iOS/Android versions have a series of visual improvements that significantly improve it and bring it much closer to the vision and mood of the original games.

That's just a f****** insult. They need to release that patch for console/PC asap.

Chard160d ago

If this gets applied to the Steam/console version then I’ll consider getting it

Cash grabs have rarely been tuned

It was beyond garbage. But we’re all over it now right? like it never happened!

anast160d ago

It's was supposed to be a mobile game.

This is what happens when you farm something out to the wrong people.

They did the OG GTA Trilogy dirty.

badz149386d ago

yup, with the amount of money they are making with GTAV, and the amount of time they've had with both the games and the hardware, what they chose to do with the Remasters was criminal!

just_looken386d ago

So true but the worst is the borderline death of the mod community thanks to the remaster and take 2 in general.

They are remastering gtaiv so now any mod for that game is under fire and soon a worse version of that game will get tossed out.

If you head to youtube there is a year later videos on the gta trilogy they now removed stuff like physics to get the game to work but its still trying to be as good as those mobile ports.

Here is one good video to watch

I recall the remaster of IV got cancelled in order to prioritise VI and fixing the trilogy. But I'm assuming this is as good as the 'definitive' trilogy will get through official support - I wonder how much more could be done by the mod community. The original III and VC have reverse engineered ports which are probably the best current way to play them.

@chard

Groove street is working on a unannounced project still they are going to do something for gtaiv anniversary based on a rumor.

Do not forget gta trilogy was the 3rd best selling game under the take 2 umbrella that year.

Demetrius385d ago

Ain it tho smh and they still won’t overhaul them smh I just purchased the original trilogy for my ps2 slim the cds were even still new posters in the case with the manuals lol I still play them for hours I won’t even look at gameplay of the defective edition bullsh**

Chard385d ago

are they still patching it?

just_looken385d ago

grove street stopped patching few months in and is now working on a unannounced title while a inhouse team in rockstar made the game playable so all missions can be finished and got that team got it back on steam store.

As my comment uptop states there are videos showing documentation and though it on steam the game is not near the quality of the mobile ports it came from. The ps2 era copies just destroy it overall.

Profchaos385d ago (Edited 385d ago )

Yet it still sold over 10 million. I'm guilty of buying it twice ps5 and switch. And it still crashes at the end of specific missions like the casino heist in GTA SA when playing at 30 fps or the mission in vc where you and Lance race the boat to the dealer.

Despite that it's still better than it was but could be better.

They knew these games had huge demand they should of done each game properly seven if that meant developing each title individually over a year or two rather than all three at once and or a full remake rather than a remaster with generic ue4 assets and effects slotted in

Yet despite all of this I'm extremely hopeful that after 6 drops we get a HD trilogy on modern system whatever that may be ps6 switch 3 and Xbox series next
