I haven't played much, but so far, this game retains all the fun, the R-rated content and the feel of the Grand Theft Auto franchise. Simply put, if you must buy one DS game this year, make it GTA Chinatown Wars. The mini-games make good use of the touchscreen and the missions are hella fun. I haven't had the chance to play GTA IV yet, but apparently the city is pretty much identical in CHinatow Wars. So, has anyone else picked up this little gem for their DS?
