    For Fans it must be amazing, but it is not much if I look at it as a new videogame. Low graphs, weak story, just a copy of the Game Boy GTA.
    Not bad to play on the Metro/Bus.

    Overall, it has good graphics, it´s a good game with a good story, but actually it has a repetitive story.

  1. The game does suffer from too many touch screen mini-games and a slightly outdated look, but those problems are easy to overlook when the product turns out to be this good!

    Whether you get end up drug dealing, causing mayhem, taxiing city passengers around or simply completing the missions, it's likely that your only moment of disappointment will come when you realize how dangerously close you are to finishing the game -- at which point you should note that there are an additional set of missions to be unlocked by tracking down two (very well) hidden Golden Lions after the main storyline ends.
  3. Despite the minor flaws, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is an excellent experience.
