I didn't expect much from the forthcoming re-releases of the series-altering Grand Theft Auto Trilogy. 3D worlds, design twists, and a host of other features took over GTA III to GTA Vice City and then GTA San Andreas. This was something I didn't expect.
The story aspect of these games is not what they should have been, but Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy refresh releases will give a fresh look to the classics. It has a distinct "late '90s computer animated children's cartoon" feel. Based on the trailer's first glimpse at gameplay, the difference is evident in character designs. These characters look more cartoonish than old video game character designs. A nice update!
Although the GTA series' story and gameplay mechanics may not be the best, it can still feel a bit dated. However, GTA fans will enjoy returning to their massive virtual cities which are truly characters. The trilogy will be available for Xbox Series and PlayStation 5 consoles starting Nov. 11.
