    We are once again dealing with three great works from the world of video games, it is undeniable. Despite the passing years, the three open-worlds still deliver unforgettable atmospheres and cities teeming with details. The latter precisely are as incredible as they are coherent with these passers-by who go about their business, these multiple secondary axes which add credibility to the whole and especially these new plays of light which sublimate the whole. But it is clear that despite this little more than welcome facelift (which still lacks homogeneity), the experiences show their age. Their gameplay can be dated, especially GTA III which, today, is really difficult to handle. As you can see, this compilation will undoubtedly delight the most curious who want to discover three legends, or even the nostalgic who wish to rediscover the sensations of yesteryear while enjoying a refurbished visual, but will disappoint those looking for more current mechanics.

    This comeback of the three GTA classics feels superficial and poorly optimized, although some improvements are clearly visible. It's not the remaster we were hoping for, but these are still immortal classics that can still entertain and sometimes even amaze. And sometimes that's all we need.

    The inherent strengths of GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas allow GTA: The Trilogy to be an enjoyable experience on a very fundamental level, but as a remaster – especially as a remaster of three of the greatest games ever made – it falls short of expectations. These games deserve much better, and it’s disappointing that Rockstar doesn’t understand that.

    GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition brings all the fun of the classic games of the series that has always seen its career rise. However, it shows a hard fall with this remaster due to a lack of work in its execution.

    Three important video games remastered without passion and care, affected by bugs and crashes: a missed opportunity.

    For two decades, the three GTA games from the PlayStation 2 era symbolized the rise of the open world genre. Their groundbreaking freedom and timeless music gave us memories for life. Now these historic games instantly symbolize what a remaster should absolutely not do.

    There have been many examples recently of remade classic games, or even touched up. The biggest single issue with this release is the priceThere have been many examples recently of remade classic games, or even touched up. The biggest single issue with this release is the price point of £60. If you pay that money you expect much more to be done with the games then what has been done. Had these three been released in this state at say - £10-£15 - then you would not be seeing these scores. But at this pricepoint you expect the polish and work done that you would expect on a new release or full remaster.....and it isnt there. Just look at the quality of the RE2 remake, or even the Skyrim special edition, to see what is expected these days - and this is a long way short. Expand

    I am a Russian-speaking fan of Rockstar games and I am very upset that Rockstar did this to fans of the original trilogy…
