Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
4 ½ stars
For Grant Theft Auto’s first Nintendo DS iteration, Rockstar Games culled a new Triad-gang based storyline set in Liberty City.
As a recent transplant to the infamous metropolis, you’ll have to adapt to the life of a hired gun by robbing rivals, boosting cars and cooperating with seedy characters in the famed fashion of the franchise.
A graphic throwback to the days of overhead arcade titles, Chinatown Wars also presents a fun, tongue-in-cheek campaign and seamless utilization of both the DS’s touch screen and D-Pad, making it, so far, one of the best titles to hit the handheld console.
