  1. I know that there are a lot of things that bother people, but for me, I think the rain effects are the worst. Especially looking on the ground and seeing how all of the dots are in a perfect grid pattern rather than being random.

  2. People thinking a 'remaster' is the same as a 'remake'.

    At the end of the day, the developers are just a team of people with jobs like everyone else, regardless of how big or wealthy the company is.

    I for one, can see and appreciate all the work that was put in. Not just the big touch-ups, but all the smaller details they thought of too.

    Sure, not everything looks perfect. I think some character models look a little off. I'm sure it likely has to do with what they had to work with, we can all see what they are able to do with a brand new game.

    At the end of the day, no one is forcing you to buy this. There are a gazillion copies of the original, untouched game out there, for nearly nothing, if you rather play that.

  3. The rain effects are so bad its almost embarrassing. What the hell is with that weird clipping mask in the intro scene where the camera is panning over the bridge?

  4. I think the lighting at certain weather and character models looked better on old gen. I think they needed more time for this.

  5. The old rain was betta… also the character look worse too. In the old version they look like cartoons. In the new version with the weird lighting and added specularity they look like weird action figures.

  6. I don't care about this game due to Rockstar's childish behavior on the PC part that makes PC servers of Online to be shut down for less than 12 hours.

  7. This is such a huge let down. I was so looking forward to going back and playing this remastered. They just made a worse version than the original game. I'll stick to my original discs.
