Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (DS) Review

Rockstar knows how to do a damn good game even on a system they've never made a game on before.
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, has you playing as Huang Lee, the (spoiled) son of a murdered Triad boss, who arrives in Liberty City with Yu Jian, a sword his dad won in a poker game and has to bring it to his uncle Wu 'Kenny' Lee. The graphics in this game are cel-shaded and it does the game good. The camera is another amazing thing in the game, the camera is always on Huang which is awesome. If you can't seem to find him, just press the L button and the camera goes straight to him. Gameplay in this is the same as any other Grand Theft Auto, you steal cars, do jobs, make money, and in this one deal drugs. Dealing drugs on a Nintendo handheld? Yep. You can deal drugs. A mini-game where you buy & sell drugs. This is one of the most fun mini-games I've ever played cause when you got the right stuff to the right people, you can make a lot of money out of it. Controls seem to switch between the D-pad & buttons to the touch screen alot but it was a good mix of the two controls. You can upload your stats to the Rockstar Social Club with Wi-Fi which is cool. The audio isn't much but there is some music in the game. One of the few flaws I did find in this game is the story, it feels like I've read or seen this story somewhere else before. Other than that, I think this is one game every DS/DSi owner should have. I'm giving Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DS a 9.0 out of 10.
