Review: GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition is a disappointment on Switch

Terrible performance cripples what should have been a great collection on Nintendo’s platform

Few games have had such a lasting impact on how games were made, or have been quite so successful. People who weren’t into games played those three games. Sadly, if they were to pick them up on Switch now, they'd probably wonder if they were ever good in the first place.

  • The fantastic soundtrack is still mostly intact 
  • Awful framerate and long load times
  • Blurry beyond parody 
  • Crashes and bugs are plentiful
  • New character models are almost uniformly worse
2 / 5
Version tested
