    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?

    Got Resistance: retribution instead, but GTA DS looks sweet, especially since they went a new direction with it.

    Cool, you've got to tell me stuff about that game!

    Anywho, back up on topic. I took a quick look at the IGN.com video review of this game and it looks like they went with the "old school" GTA look, GTA 1 and GTA2.

    Dagger, you were personally addressed on the thread I started about RE:Restribution last night.

    On topic, that's what I like about this new GTA. Not that I think the new stuff isn't great, but it's a bit nostalgic to see this type of GTA. The Iphone clone, Payback isn't bad either.

    I wasn't going to get the game at all first, but after seeing some good reviews for it, I may pick it up when I can. Looks fun.

    I'll get almost anything for the DS, I just got Professor Layton. So I may pick this up. The thing is, I picked up San Andreas for the PS2 back when it was "the game" but found out I didn't care for it. Maybe a little later.

    I am interested in this but have a bit much to play. Did they manage to squeeze a good soundtrack in it?

    The soundtrack is comprised of five instrumental radio stations - rock, electronic, dub, hip-hop, and jazz.

    They're actually really good.

    That doesn't sound too bad. Besides GTA3, Vice City, and Vice City Stories, the soundtracks have had a large amount of songs I'm not crazy about.

    Will this be available on the PS3? I've not yet played a single game of this series but some friends of mine enjoyed it.

    I'm pretty sure this is going to remain a DS exclusive.

    This game does look interesting. I'm a GTA fan so I may end up getting this at some point.

    I wonder if this game will get in trouble, what with the whole selling actual drugs and all...

    i got this along with my dsi (and posting here with it). so far i got an aprtment via the scratchoff ticket minigames and about 2k in money. as much as i hate the timed missions its pretty fun. aside from some camera control (L button is annoying when running from the cops). its a worthy sucessor to the series.

    its a great ds title. lets hope that they a dsi-exclusive to have some fun with the download features.
