"At first glance, Chinatown Wars could be mistaken for a return to the Grand Theft Auto series' humble 2D beginnings. The action is viewed from a more or less top-down perspective, and of course you still spend much of your time driving stolen cars and causing trouble with firearms. But the similarities between this superb PSP game and its '90s progenitors pretty much end there. Chinatown Wars actually has more in common with GTAs III and IV than it does with earlier games, and, remarkably, it even adds to and improves on the formula that made those games so successful. That's a bold statement for sure, but Chinatown Wars really is that good... It's also one of the best GTA games yet."
"Yes, Chinatown Wars is out for the PSP, and yes, it's awesome... There were times when I was breezing down the road on my way to a mission while following my GPS and I would literally be taken aback by how good the action looked. The driving is fluid, the graphics are slick, and everything has polish to it. However, beyond this new look, you're getting everything that makes a GTA game great... Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is outstanding."
"If you missed this one the first time out (for shame!), here's your chance to play the definitive version of not just the year's best portable offering, but one of the year's most engaging titles offered on any platform. It's a living, breathing Liberty City in the palm of your hand."
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, one of the highest-rated handheld games of all time, has arrived for PSP and is fully supported over at the Rockstar Games Social Club. The PSP release is fully compatible with all of the Chinatown Wars features at the Social Club and we have also added a few all-new features for new and old fans alike.
The Social Club adds brand new features in Peking Duck Hunt and the Chinatown Wars Guide Map to our collection that includes in-depth stat tracking, Guardian Lions, and Mr. Wong's Laundry.
Like Mr. Wong's Laundry before it, Peking Duck Hunt is an arcade-style website mini-game that gives you another avenue to earn in-game cash and other rewards. The Chinatown Wars Guide Map has its own unique unlockable reward for those dedicated enough to explore every last inch of Liberty City. Finally, we have also updated the Chinatown Wars Downloads section at Social Club to include a range of new papercraft models to print, cut, fold and create.
Visit www.rockstargames.com/socialclub for more detail and to check out each feature.
