The launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy The Definitive Edition has not been easy. In addition to the graphical issues, Rockstar Games has had to deal with the downfall of your official client, so the title was withdrawn from the market while they fixed the errors. All these failures have not gone unnoticed, something that is reflected in Metacritic, where some players have expressed their dissatisfaction with a barrage of negative reviews.
We refer, of course, to review bombing, an increasingly common practice that users use to punish mistakes. It consists of scoring a game with an unusually low mark (generally 0 or 1 out of 10), which results in the fall of the arithmetic mean. At the time we published this news, all versions of GTA Trilogy have a “mostly negative” rating in all versions:
- PC: 0,5/10
- PS4: 0,7/10
- PS5: 0,9/10
- Nintendo Switch: 0,5/10
- Xbox One: 0,4/10
- Xbox Series X: 0,5/10
General discontent at Metacritic
“All I can say is that I’m glad Game Pass allowed me not to waste my money on this. It is bad, and that was with low expectations and wanting to like it ”, wrote a user, who has given it a score of 0/10. “The worst ‘remastering’ I’ve ever seen. This ‘definitive’ trilogy is just a piece of shit, ”says another. The criticisms are not only focused on bugs, but also on some artistic decisions, such as the elimination of the fog in the world, which gives it a somewhat strange appearance.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy The Definitive Edition está disponible en PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch y PC (via the Rockstar Games launcher). It will be necessary to see if the also creators of Red Dead Redemption 2 take action on the matter and update the trilogy to polish the gaming experience. Have to wait.
