    Grand Theft Auto : Chinatown Wars first screens Nintendo Power magazine has some new details about the upcoming Grand Theft Auto : Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DS. The magazine reveals that the game will have a cel-shaded look and action will be viewed from an isometric perspective. The first screenshots of the game will be soon available.

    - True GTA game - sandbox gameplay, open-world environment, gritty crime narrative.
    - M-rating
    - Isometric camera angle
    - Cel-shaded polygons w/ black borders
    - good touch-screen implementation - 'tasteful' minigames, streamlining interface
    - UI based on a PDA - hub for email, contacts, map, music player, GPS, stat-tracking
    - stats uploaded to Rockstar Social Club website via Wi-Fi
    - finger-sized icons
    - missions designed for shorter periods of play, arcade quality
    - aiming with control pad, auto targeting with R button
    - subtle autosteer
    - if you fail a mission, you can jump back to the action sequence
    - chain gun, flamethrower
    - good portion of Liberty City is modeled in the game (different routes than console games)
    - no probems with load times, draw-in or frame rate
    - lots of pedestrians, cars, etc on screen
    - Wanted system - objective is to disable police cars any way possible
    - real-time weather effects, 24-hour day/night cycle
    - lots of radio stations to listen to (more instrumentals than vocals)
    - 800,000 lines of hand-optimized source code (hey, the people like the info, right?)
    - no details yet on multiplayer/Wi-Fi features

    I agree with that

    If Rockstar makes this for the PSP it looks better, GTA VCS & LCS look awesome on my psp. But Nintendo and GTA that are two different things. The nintendo ds is something for kids and for old people. So why they make a GTA for that? I hope they also make it for the psp.

    Whilst this is the first GTA I'm not going to get, you have to admit as rubbish as the DS is, R* have done a good job getting it to look like it does.

    Should've kept it 2d rather than making it slightly 3d, would have worked better and been like the originals.

    • PDA allows you to gain access to the map with more details as well as the goals of missions
    • You can mark points that you want and the GPS will always tell you the shortest legal route to the destination with yellow or blue arrows
    • New discoveries (such as gas stations) are added to the map
    • Top screen brings you all the action, while the lower screen will let you control elements like the PDA, GPS, the radio, access to the people on the map, or using Motolov cocktails and grenades.
    • Drugs have a big importance in the game
    • Drug system can be compared to Drugwars
    • You have to control the stock of drugs, buy them in one neighborhood and sell them in another
    • You are given a map so that you know what people demand and at what prices
    • Like other GTA games, in Chinatown Wars, you can catch a taxi whistle into the microphone so the taxi will stop
    • It will be set in Liberty City, but Alderney will not be included
