I've only played snippets of the GTA series on larger consoles, so I can't make much of a comparison. However, compared with most DS games, Chinatown wars is simply outstanding. Most games on the the DS are pretty one-dimensional as the dynamics of the gameplay tend to remain the same throughout. This is fine if, like me, you generally want ten to twenty minutes to take a break from books or work or life. This game however is more than a beeping diversion. It's a small world crammed into a DS cartridge.
My only critiques are that it is sometimes awkward integrating the stylus into gameplay. It's easy when you have to complete neat little puzzles (hot wiring a car, digging through a trash bin, breaking through a window), but very hard when you need to chuck an explosive at the seven police cars chasing you while simultaneously shooting back at them, avoiding gun fire, and/or holding the accelerator button in your car. It might be better if you just grew a single fingernail out really long in lieu if the stylus. But that would be a strange indeed.
1. Uses the touch screen in extremely creative ways.
2. Very lengthy game with 70+ missions and countless side diversions.
3. Interesting, adult themed story with some crazy characters.
1. Throwing projectiles with the touch screen can be tricky.
2. Small screen makes it hard to see oncoming police cars until its too late.
3. Not a wide variety of music available on the radio.
* Makes very well use out of the DS touch screen.--I thought it was real innovative using the DS as a PDA. Liked how you had to steal cars using the touchscreen for hotwiring, screwdrivers, throwing grenades/molotovs, smashing your window to escape when you drive your car into the water, and throwing your money at the toll gates.
*Big map--plenty of room to explore city. I beat it in a couple days, but no way had the city memorized.
*E-mails--liked this aspect of the game, plus had the perfect amount of funny spam sent out. Oh, rockstar.
* Dirty, raunchy, bad language and blood.--I thought being on the DS they would clean it up a little, but to my liking and surprise, it is a normal GTA game with F bombs, blood, midget and transexual sex, betrayals, plot twists, and all the raunchiness I'd expect from it. Well done.
* Drug selling--I loved the drug wars-like aspect of buying drugs when they're cheap and selling when demand is high. It might of depended on it a little too much thought, thats how I made a majority of my money. Don't expect to make money on missions.
* Wide variety of cars/motorcycles to steal.--They also did away with planes in this game, which was fine for me, b/c in the other GTA's it was getting a little complicated with everything. There were a few boat/water missions and it was the perfect amount, most of the gameplay staying on dry ground in the city.
*Gun deliveries right to your door.--I liked just ordering weapons through the PDA instead of worrying about finding an ammunation.
*Hijacking trucks/vans with drugs.--You can make huge profits if you get lucky and steal a van with the right drugs in it.
*Police--In other GTA's it was damn near impossible to lose your stars, and at times you knew you'd get busted. In this one, it wasn't hard to get rid of the stars, you just have to ram police cars or destroy them to get rid of one star at a time.
*Good humor--I found myself laughing outloud in many places in this game. Chan is a little annoying, but thats just his character and you have to laugh when he talks about having sex with transexual midgets.
*Safehouses--multiple safehouses to purchase throughout the city
*Drug dealers galore--you're never going to have to travel far to sell that coke you ripped off of the other gangsters, unless you're trying to make it across town to Joe who's paying big bucks for it.
*Very short story.--My biggest gripe. Though money well spent, and its fun just driving through town shooting people, stealing cars etc., I beat the main story line in about 2 and a half days.
*Auto dealers--It kept talking about how there were new car imports, and even up until the end, I was searching around for it and to no prevail, I couldn't find how to buy cars. If someone wants to comment and let me know how, I would greatly appreciate it.
*Getting busted--I was usually pretty low on cash in the game, and after getting busted you lose all drugs you were carrying on you (makes sense) and also lose your weapons. I just didn't have enough cash to buy enough guns up until the end, so if I got busted I often had to load up the game. You are much, much better off to have a stand-off with police and get sent to the hospital, because you end up with your weapons and drugs (I believe) instead of losing it when you get busted. So dying is better off than getting arrested.
I definitely can't wait until and if (hopefully) they release a 2nd game. I would buy it. And a 3rd, and 4th...This almost got 5 stars from me, and if it was a little bit longer it would have gotten it from me. But I don't know how much extra space they had on the little DS cartridge. They definitely pushed the limits of it, and I'd recommend this to anyone.
