'GTA Trilogy' Still Has The Best Feature From The Original Games

'GTA Trilogy' Still Has The Best Feature From The Original Games

The Grand Theft Auto remasters are out now in the wild, and while we’ve seen some screenshots and gameplay from Rockstar Games, we’re ecstatic to learn that the new games still include the cheats from the original releases.


The games, which were whispered about for what felt like aeons, have gotten "across-the-board enhancements, including brilliant new lighting and environmental upgrades, with high-resolution textures, increased draw distances” to pull their PS2-era graphics into 2021. Honestly, I think the effect is cool, injecting the world with a splash of vibrancy so Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City look how you remember them looking and not how they actually look. That’s an important difference there. 

Check out the comparison between the originals and the re-releases below!



While some of the original games' iconic songs are now missing from the radio, there have been changes to the user interface with a Grand Theft Auto V-style weapon wheel, improved gun controls and a whole host of new trophies to chase. As we’re on that topic, the cheats actually work in the newest versions of the games, but trophies will not pop for the rest of the playthrough as soon as they are activated. Bear that in mind! 

If you’re new to the Definitive Trilogy, there are a number of different types of cheats, from swapping your character skin in Grand Theft Auto III to speeding up time in San Andreas to turning all of the cars pink in Vice City. What you’ll likely be interested in, however, are the cheats that reduce your wanted level, give you infinite ammo, and unlock the Rhino tank. Of course, these are all a mere internet search away.

On the other hand, Grand Theft Auto V has just surpassed 155 million copies sold since its launch eight years ago. Still sure that Grand Theft Auto VI is on the horizon? Recent reports allege that development on the next game has been shambolic with numerous start-overs.
