About this deal

Price matching Currys.

Three iconic cities, three epic stories. Play the genre-defining classics of the original Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas updated for a new generation, now with across-the-board enhancements including brilliant new lighting and environmental upgrades, high-resolution textures, increased draw distances, Grand Theft Auto V-style controls and targeting, and much more, bringing these beloved worlds to life with all new levels of detail.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition includes

  • Grand Theft Auto III: It all starts in Liberty City. With the revolutionary freedom to go anywhere and jack anyone, Grand Theft Auto III puts the center of the criminal underworld at your fingertips, if you have enough guts to take it.
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City: Welcome to the 1980s. From the decade of big hair and pastel suits comes the story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile. Grand Theft Auto returns with Tommy Vercetti’s tale of betrayal and revenge in a neon-soaked tropical town full of excess and brimming with possibilities.
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas: Five years ago, Carl ‘CJ’ Johnson escaped the haze of Los Santos, San Andreas...a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs, and corruption. Now, it's the early 90s. CJ’s got to go home - his mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart, and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighbourhood, a couple of cops frame him for homicide, forcing CJ on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets in the next iteration of the series that changed everything.

    Bought this. Got the platinum for all 3 games. GTA 3 crashed all time. Vice City hardly at all. San Andreas never crashed for me. Games feel authentically old with a nice bit of polish to suit the modern gamer - such as minor graphical improvements and the inclusion of on screen maps. Only 1 real bug encountered involving some hidden packages in GTA3. All 3 are still awesome games, with GTA Vice City being my absolute favourites GTA of all time. Point is, don't be put off by the bandwagon of hate, there is a lot of fun and value to be had here.

    I never really played San Andreas but I wasnt particularly impressed with 3 or vice city when they came out. Very clunky controls (I specifically remember that the aiming was terrible) and the graphics were pretty average for their time.

    I loved the first two games though.

    Funny how a lot of comments are people complaining that the games havn't aged well. This isn't a remake - just a polish (of the mobile version, so I've heard). Personally, I've played a few hours of God Of War Ragnarok and the endless cutscenes and hold-y hand-y gameplay are already getting on my nerves, and yet some proclaimed this as the greatest game of all time. But back in the day, I loved every second of GTA San Andreas - there was just so much to do. I don't know what my point is - just that games have moved on (for the worse in a lot of cases).

    Feel the same about GoW - the first one was fantastic, but finding the second one a slog to get through. Main thing I think is killing it are the open sections with the wolves - this just kills the pacing for me - I had a similar gripe with Gears 5. Open worlds can be great but they can also be a burden when they are shoehorned in.

    Currently playing the original GTAIII emulated on Steam Deck - controls take a bit of getting used to but still having fun with it

    This still isn't completely fixed. I'm playing Vice City on the PS5 through PS Plus and I've seen cars driving into the ground, NPC glitches and the game has also crashed twice.

    It's better than it was at launch but it shouldn't be having these issues well over a year after release.

    Also, this doesn't give you any kind of upgrade to the PS5 version so you have no choice but to buy them digitally. (edited)

    Not worth a quid. Played Vice city recently on Ps plus. Awful

    I'm playing through it right now and tbh, the look or technical issues of the game aren't the real problem. The games have just aged poorly IMO. The shooting mechanics, world design and animations are all incredibly dated by modern standards.

    I loved Vice City on release and it was my favourite up until GTAV. I kind of wish I hadn't gone back because it's ruined my memories a little. I forgot how absolutely infuriating some of the missions were and how awful the shooting is now compared to modern games.

    Great price this.

    Nice find Mixi!

    As mentioned. Don’t let the hateful comments put you off. Very good fun games to play these. As I remembered playing them all back on release and look as they did back then (the originals haven’t aged well visually so this I a nice, if only slight upgrade, it makes a big difference)

    Thank you, Mixi...

    I bought this... And then mere moments later, I decided to cancel my purchase.

    In the spirit of HotUKD... Money saved. (edited)

    This is a great deal for this tbf and I want to play this on the PS5 badly but no upgrade to the PS5 version so you're forced to buy digital and lots of songs missing from the radio stations really puts me off

    If you can live with them things it's a fabulous deal a lot of content for the money but for pedantic me it's sadly not viable

    Thanks OP! Ordered. Feel this is a good price to finally bite.

    Seems to be much approved now.

    Decent price, and they are in a better state than on release now.
    I think a lot of the burden they have is the shame they didn't really go all out, even now they are working it still feels very half hearted. Like they just released it to finally shut up the endless demand for a trilogy remaster.
