GTA Trilogy Comparison Concludes Vice City Is The Best Definitive Edition

GTA: Vice City – The Definitive Edition looks better than the remaster trilogy’s GTA 3 and Vice City, but that isn’t saying much.
Tech experts have found Grand Theft Auto: Vice City’s remake is the finest game in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition based on aesthetics and performance, but it sadly isn’t too much ahead of the collection’s other titles. Digital foundry previously analyzed how GTA 3 – The Definitive Edition operates on PS5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and last-gen consoles, as well as how different performance options impact how the game looks and functions, and the results weren’t great.
Although there was initial enthusiasm for the remasters GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas on modern technology, GTA: Trilogy – Definitive Edition was received with a chilly reaction at release because of its graphic modifications and bugs. The PC version of GTA: The Trilogy was the focus of most controversy and media attention, with developer Rockstar Games briefly deleting it from the Rockstar Launcher just days after launch. The remasters have since been repaired and upgraded, and Rockstar is even letting those who purchased GTA: The Trilogy download classic versions of the GTA games for free as a public display of goodwill.
On Eurogamer, Digital Foundry has ended its technical analysis of Grand Theft Auto: Trilogy – Definitive Edition with a critique of the Vice City and San Andreas remasters. The Digital Foundry video analyzes how the remasters run on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch, in addition to evaluating how they measure up compared to GTA 3 – Definitive Edition. The experts regarded GTA: Vice City to be the title which made the best transfer to modern technology, with a significant factor being the original game’s art style matching more closely with Definitive Edition’s upgraded visuals. Vice City only wins by a tiny margin, though, since Digital Foundry reports the same technical faults plaguing the GTA 3 and San Andreas remasters are also there in Vice City – Definitive Edition.
In addition to examining the GTA: The Trilogy’s remasters of Vice City and San Andreas, Digital Foundry also took a brief look at the collections’ upgrades that have come out in the two weeks since release. Unfortunately, none of the technical faults noted in the GTA 3 comparison video seem to have been fixed thus far, as these updates were in production prior to the remasters’ launch and subsequent reaction. The latest GTA: San Andreas – Definitive Edition patch notes suggest a repair for the game’s infamous rain, however Digital Foundry says the weather effect looks to behave identically to how it did before the update.
Rockstar recently stated that GTA: The Trilogy is below its standards and has pledged to address player complaints with further updates in the future. While an official timeframe for these upgrades hasn’t been revealed yet, fixing the various issues afflicting Grand Theft Auto: Trilogy – Definitive Edition will likely be Rockstar and developer Grove Street Games’ primary focus for the time being.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, and it will launch for iOS and Android in H1 2022.
