Fans have been waiting for Grand Theft Auto’s trailer and the Rockstar Games has finally unveiled the first full trailer for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definite Edition with updated current-generation graphics and other “big” improvements.
However, some fans are showing disliking for the remaster’s visual style and are remarking that the graphics look too “cartoonish” or “unreal”.
The long-rumored GTA remaster trilogy was actually announced earlier this month and fans were promised the three PS2-era sandbox games – Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas- all three would be featuring graphical improvements and even gameplay enhancements for modern standards. Additionally to all this, the compilation game will be released on both current generation and last generation platforms.
But no footage or screenshots were revealed online until today and many leaks suggested that the collection would amount reach the speculated major graphical overhauls’ standards. The upcoming title’s PC requirements appear to be loftier than expected and it looks like that certainly does confirm the theories that the game would include improved visuals. The game should be sizing up to around 45 GBs and require at least 2 GBs of video RAM which made GTA trilogy remaster system specifications tighter than Grand Theft Auro 5 and also revealed to feature new high-resolution textures, increased draw distances, new lighting, and modern controls.
The graphics were stated to mostly same as what they appeared during the 2000s seeing only a few enhancements which some fans didn’t like. After the trailer of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy- The Definite Edition was revealed, many fans took the matter to social media to criticize its art style and visual representation.

The trailer was super overwhelming, but I hate how the characters look less intimidating and more like the Sims now. pic.twitter.com/eg2pIi5sRC

Then there was Youtuber Thafnine’s comment. A little background before it. The remaster was developed on Unreal Engine 4 and fans did compare it to other titles which look similar or have used the same technology and it includes titles such as Fortnite, The Sims, and Roblox. Thafnine has made fun of remaster’s appearance by stating that Rockstar Games had “hired that man.”
