On paper, the premise of a remastered Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas collection with a whole host of visual and technical tweaks should have been an open and shut case for Rockstar Games. Players have been clamouring for these classics to come back for donkey’s years and the announcement was met with nothing short of a rapturous reception.
Here are the new and original games side-by-side to compare how much has changed!
In practice, it’s been a proper headache for the studio and for fans. The situation is so dire that Rockstar Games has been inundated with refund requests for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition. Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it, or something like that. While the team have assured players that it is working on a patch to improve the state of the games, it looks like modders have beaten them to the draw.
One of the more egregious issues with the new versions is the rain. Yes. The rain. Take a look here:
They should've called this remaster "GTA Silent Hill". But not with fog,but with thick rain. Like seriously, what the heck??? I can't see 🤦♂️ #GrandTheftAutoSanAndreasTheDefinitiveEdition #XboxShare pic.twitter.com/TkjzOlNvzI— Isaac Tanner 🌞 (@Icecream5cooper) November 12, 2021
I’d be surprised if you didn’t walk away with the mother of all migraines after that. Fortunately, a number of content creators have taken steps to minimise… whatever that is. Firstly, GTATrilogyMods has a fix on Patreon and version 1.1 is free to download and version 1.2 is able to be trialled by those who subscribe.
On the GTA Forums iNSANE666 has mods for “Better Rain” in GTA 3, as well as busted, wasted, and menu screens, which will be arriving on Nexus Mods once its page for the trilogy goes live.
