At the time of writing, Rockstar has not yet released a patch to fix the common issues themselves. Well says the company working to improve performance. Many players express their dissatisfaction with the quality of the remasters. With a user rating of 0.5 on Metacritic, the remasters collection is one of the lowest scoring games on the review collection site.

Digital Foundry released a comprehensive analysis of the GTA III remaster this week. In it, author John Linneman writes that he encountered numerous problems that are both hilarious and disappointing. He can’t believe this remaster has been properly tested before release. Also, the game does not run stably at 60fps on the new consoles in the appropriate performance mode. ‘The end result is simply not good enough’, he concludes.

The remasters are available for the PC, PlayStation and Xbox consoles, and the Nintendo Switch. The mods only work with the PC version. The physical versions of the games should be released on December 6. The remasters will also come to iOS and Android next year.
