On its release day, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition players have been sharing images of some of its more strange-looking graphics updates.
As part of the remastering process, GTA’s character models have been upgraded to fit the game’s new HD style.
However, some people who bought the game have been less than impressed with some of the results and have been posting them online.

Twitter user potad posted a thread of odd character models, highlighting strange-looking faces, fingernails and body shapes.
They also pointed out that the game’s apparent lack of fog means players can see right across the map, with Mount Chiliad visible from Grove Street.
Other issues pointed out by players include the way characters’ bodies can appear oddly deformed at times, and the way the rain falls in enormous torrents in GTA III, making it difficult to see.
The comments are part of a generally rough launch for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, with Rockstar suffering a number of other issues.
Players who had pre-ordered the PlayStation version of the game were gaining access to it much earlier than they were supposed to, forcing Rockstar to pull the game from the PlayStation Store until it was ready to officially launch.
Rockstar then took down its PC Games Launcher, which is still down at the time of writing, more than 15 hours after Rockstar tweeted that it was down for maintenance.
Players have been unable to play the game since the Launcher went down, meaning everyone who bought the PC version of The Definitive Edition has been locked out of their new purchase until Rockstar brings the Launcher back.
The Launcher’s downtime may be related to reports that the PC version of the game contains music that’s no longer licensed, as well as uncompiled code with developer comments.
