GTA: Definitive Edition – Surprisingly Good on Mobile (Free with Netflix)

Initially, the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition on consoles and PCs failed to meet expectations despite the budget $60 price tag. The gameplay felt like an unoptimized, buggy reskin of the originals, almost as if the hardware was underutilized. While prices have since dropped, the experience remains lackluster.

The Surprisingly Good Mobile Version

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is one of the over 80 mobile games that you can enjoy on Netflix, no matter what kind of games you like. You can play one of the most legendary series ever, as part of your Netflix subscription, with no interruptions or extra costs.

However, the mobile port available through Netflix has proven surprisingly impressive. With instant loading times, the graphics are shockingly good considering the platform. The visuals look smooth and crisp, exceeding the YouTube footage.

Moreover, there are noticeably fewer bugs compared to the console editions. Although the controls take adjustment, they are serviceable. The only downside is minor frame rate dips when driving at high speeds. But the performance is consistent otherwise, especially during on-foot gameplay. For a mobile port, it’s remarkably stable.

A No-Brainer for GTA Fans

Since it’s free for Netflix subscribers, there’s no reason not to try the mobile version. It’s the best way to play the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition right now. The portability also allows you to revisit these classics anywhere.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy seems to barely tap into the potential of our PCs and consoles. These ports could have been awesome if they had more polish and could have bridged the gap between GTA 5 and GTA 6.

Overall, the mobile release shows what these remasters could have been. It’s the definitive version fans hoped for, filling the gap until Grand Theft Auto 6 while recreating the nostalgia. If only this level of care was put into the console editions. Nonetheless, the mobile port is absolutely worth playing for Grand Theft Auto enthusiasts.
