At the same time, the new remastered trilogy upgrades do change the overall tone, look, and feel of the game. GTA III's blurry and dark sequences gave the experience a more foreboding and brooding nature, underlining the dark city streets filled with crime. There are some parts of GTA III that are just dazzling--namely the Times Square area with its mock-Flatiron Building--and Vice City is also a lot brighter than the PS2 days.

San Andreas looks better in a bunch of different ways, especially during mission sequences, but the definitive yellow glow seems to be gone. The game definitely looks a lot less gritty than it used to all those years ago.

Then there's the character animations and models. Yeah...these are an acquired taste.

We'll have a better idea of how the trilogy looks when the GTA remaster collection launches tomorrow, November 11, 2021 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
