Grove Street Games remastered each of these games, making them more attractive and playable than their PS2 counterparts. Rockstar claims it used Unreal Engine, a completely rebuilt lighting system, with the graphics improvements appearing to touch almost every aspect of the games. Rockstars released a list that includes enhanced shadows, weather, reflections, as well as upgraded character and vehicle models. The draw distances are longer, surfaces are smoother, and textures can be viewed more clearly across buildings, weapons and roads.

Rockstar Games confirmed that all games have Grand Theft Auto V-inspired controls. This alone will make these games feel modern. Each game has been updated with new targeting and lock-on aim features. Each game has updated their interfaces with radio station wheels and weapon wheels. There are also new mini-maps that allow players to set waypoints or destinations.

There are also some platform-specific features. Rockstar has added gyroscopic aim to the Nintendo Switch. You can also use its touchscreen to zoom and pan with your camera, as well as make selections in menus. Nvidia's DLSS tech is available in the PC version (a 45GB Download). This allows games to run better on a wider range of graphics cards, without noticeable visual quality drops.

This news is in honor of the 20th anniversary Grand Theft Auto III on PS2. Although the $59.99 price may be surprising to some, it is worth it for those who love Grand Theft Auto III. If you are a Game Pass or PlayStation Now subscriber you know that you will get some of the games at no extra cost.
