Yer the game opened up when other time zones hit midnight instead of the official time they were allowed to.

Played GTA 3 earlier and just had a blast on San Andreas. It seems there's a lot of people not really understanding what a remaster is, a lot are saying "OMGZ ITS s**t, WHY WUD ROCKSTAR BRING GAMES OUT THAT LOOK THIS BAD?". Well funny thing about remasters is they can be whatever the developer decides, if they just want to improve it visually, they will. If they want to improve it controls wise they will. It's not supposed to be a new game for christs sake.

GTA 3 looks weird in ways, some of the lighting looks fantastic but then doesn't look right because the textures are dire but I am Impressed with what they've done with it. It's still the same old game just visually better in a lot of aspects.

Vice City I've not touched yet so can't say.

San Andreas is by far the best one so far. The game is just infinity better to play, the cars aren't absolutely shocking to drive, smooth inputs are actually possible now. Im actually finding it easier to play. Visually it looks brilliant, some characters look reet odd but I don't care, they looked like polygons way back when anything is an improvement from that. The lighting is great, the paint on the cars is impressive, how some are metallic etc.

I am playing these on PS5, visuals set to Fluidity. I've not noticed any frame rate drops and I've turned lens flare on, maybe I don't notice drops because I don't care who knows.

All in all... it's a remaster and it looks exactly how I though it looked back then which was amazing at the time. I'm impressed, GTA 3 is still clunky and San Andreas is well worth playing it all the way through again. It certainly isn't money wasted because I will play it and easily get 55 hours out of it and have fun while I am.

Ended up round my mates last night and he'd got it. Spent an hour and flicked between all three.

That's enough for me haha.

Edit: Similar vibes to just playing the old ones. It's fun for a quick nostalgia hit but I don't think I'd put any time into it.

Played a bit of San Andreas last night on XBox, everything is very dark and the sound (speech) is weird, don't think it likes Windows Sonic with headphones.

Not played enough to form an opinion yet, but had forgotten that Samuel L Jackson was the cop at the beginning. :cool:

I'm having more fun playing San Andreas this time round than I had the first time round because it's playable now ha ha ha.

Wait, so you're suggesting it wasn't playable back when?
No but smooth inputs were nothing but a pipedream, its easier to drive and the controls are superior now compared to way back when.

So pc players get the original games free and console players get?
This is the reason I don't buy games on release. Its all too common that hyped up games come to market broken and well below what is expected by customers.

Completed GTA 3 in two days, ploughed through it. This was mainly because I started SA and got to the mission where you need to take over gang territory and the game seems to have gone impossible. Full amour, full upgraded health lasts till the 2nd wave and they just turn into aim bots so I bailed on it and completed GTA 3 instead.

Oh no, this was prior to the update. Flew through the missions but all of a sudden AI can't miss, not to mention the mission you need to kill B Dup and theres about 8 Balla's stood on the front lawn... You get blitzed, they can't miss. Important characters seem to stand directly in front of you mid fire fight too, all things that were present in 2004.
