Grove Street Titles refurbished each of these games, and it looks that they went to great lengths to make them considerably prettier and more fun than their PS2 versions. According to Rockstar, it employed Unreal Engine and a “fully revamped” lighting system, and the graphical enhancements seem to affect almost every aspect of the games. Improved shadows, weather, and reflections, as well as updated character and vehicle models, are among the features listed in Rockstar’s press statement. There are “higher resolution textures across buildings, weapons, roads, interiors, and more,” as well as greater draw distances, smoother surfaces, and “higher resolution textures across buildings, weapons, roads, interiors, and more.”
Each game will include controls inspired by Grand Theft Auto V, according to Rockstar Games. That alone should be enough to make these games seem more contemporary. Each game has had its targeting and lock-on aiming improved. Each game has redesigned weapon and radio station wheels, as well as new mini-maps that allow players to specify waypoints and destinations.
There are also some platform-specific improvements.
Rockstar integrated gyroscopic aiming to the Nintendo Switch, and you can use the touchscreen to zoom and pan with the camera, as well as make menu choices. The PC edition (a 45GB download) includes Nvidia’s DLSS technology, which allows games to run more smoothly on a broader range of graphics cards without sacrificing visual quality.
This fresh tidbit of information arrives on the 20th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III on the PlayStation 2. The $59.99 price tag may surprise some, but the upgrades seem to make it worthwhile for enthusiasts. Nonetheless, if you’re a Game Pass or PlayStation Now member, you already know that you’ll be able to play some of the titles in the collection for free.
