All they really have to do is make tommys eyes smaller, angle his eyebrows differently and lighten his skin and he’ll be fixed. I dont think he looks fat, its just the angle

Yes. He doesn't look like a diabetic Prince of Persia in the original.

They have clearly tried to make the 3 games look different. Vice City always looked very cartoony, even at the time, so they have given Vice City a cartoony style. It never looked realistic to begin with, not even in 2002. Whereas San Andreas looked a little more realistic so they have maintained the more realistic look with the remaster. All 3 remasters seem to match the art style of the originals pretty well (in terms of character design)

Unrealistc ≠ cartoony

GTA Vice City looked unrealistic and a bit cartoony, yes but way less cartoony than the now remastered one.

"Remastered" shiny Playdough-Sims version. Notice the difference in skin tone:

Vice City is easily the best looking city in the gta series and Liberty City gta 4 is second and Las Venturas is 3rd.

I hope gta 6 takes place a HD version rendition of Vice City aka Miami Florida:( I love Florida ❤A new Vice City with the surrounding swamps and Everglades and Florida keys would be awesome!

This picture is from a game that was released in 2003. So, yes it looks better.

 

At least he doesn't look that fat here.

I wonder what the car sounds and police lights will be like too.

10 bucks says that cars will still continuously upshift when under full acceleration, until they hit their coded top speeds which then will make them shift to a fake final gear, which is really just the sound of the car accelerating at full throttle at very low revs

I hate his new sneakers and jeans. The pants should be lighter and acid washed and the sneakers should be shell toes. That is 80s. He looks like a hipstern. And whats up with that pompadour

I took the liberty to export these frames in after effects from the 4K Trailer directly hosted by Rockstar for the best image quality.

 

Thought this would also belong to this topic, please use at your disposal.

yes i do

I know Rockstar would love to be compared to the worst case scenario (considering they took down the other options and DMCA'd/sued any fans working on improving those) but I really feel like you can see something got lost in translation when you look at the game modded (just the "basically required mods", to be precise SilentPatch, SkyGFX, Project 2DFX & the widescreen fix) compared to what R* cooked up

 

3ZnS8co.jpegunknown.png

 

(above is only here to show what i tried to match the time of day on)

 

 

unknown.png

As per their own comparison this is roughly the same time of day and honestly the difference in how pleasant it is to the eye is massive. Is the remaster technically more impressive? I mean yeah, it's running on an engine that's at least 13 years older than this game. But it really just doesn't capture the same atmosphere - and I can safely assume that the radio stations will not have the original songs - kind of makes me wonder what am I paying 60 dollars for here

using skygfx to update the graphics and 2dfx to increase the draw distance above the maximum vanilla value on pc is not what they should be comparing, why would they compare a modded version to their remaster? stop bitching and moaning, vice city always looked terrible without mods

Ah yes, I like how the sleeves encapsulate the arm like a fleshlight.

 

yfw the shirt being thick as styrofoam is an OG game issue and they just replicated it

I hardly noticed the pants, but Tommy's new hairdo and tan just throws the entire character off to me (especially the hair). Story-wise, Tommy had only just entered into Vice City not too long ago. The new look makes it look like he's been living there for the majority of his life.

I don’t see what makes him look fat. 
 

To me it looks like his shirt looks like a proper “shirt” instead of being something that looks painted onto his body lacking definition and volume.

 

I’m also digging his new face. Love the slick hair style and the stubble gives him a more rugged yet classy look. Can’t wait to see what the Mr Vercetti suit looks like on him.

Doesn't he look too orange? His face and lips are also fatter compared to the original.

While I like the style I will agree that Tommy does look very strange. If I were to pin it down I'd say he should have a different nose, more Roman like and should probably have arm hair, looks to smooth otherwise.

Vercetti's most defined facial characteristics was his nose, it should have been the same. I hope we get OG mod for Tommy without straying far from The Trilogy's art style. The question comes will the animations go well with the modded model and will this game support mods?

because they're selling it for 60 dollars and they removed the option to buy the originals btw if you haven't noticed

oh and what about DMCAing and suing what is essentially their only competition?

Tbh, yeah, Tommy does look better in a way. His arms are too girly, put some hair on them though.

 

I agree with people laughing at his face, it looks memey at first.
