New for iPhone/iPod Touch – Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

GTA, Chinatown Wars, just hit the App Store and is available for iPhone and iPod Touch. It’s a $10 ‘investment’ that will guarantee you some interesting game time.

I bought it and tested it – just so you wouldn’t have to in case it sucked. So far, it’s really great and worth every penny. In my opinion.

The cutscenes are the usual cartoon’ish style graphics and the gameplay itself is just like you know it from the platform GTA series, a bit square’ish but still appealing and enjoyable.

Gameplay seems easy enough. The only problem for me, as with most other games like this, is the onscreen D-pad. While it works, I really prefer having a physical D-pad to control my character so I can feel in the finger where I’m at (direction wise). You don’t have that option with an onscreen D-pad.

Touch Arcade did a review of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, here are some of the highlights:

  • Graphics are much better than in the early screenshots and fall somewhere between PSP and the DS version.
  • Plot and story is classic GTA. Decent and profane in a good way.
  • Controls not as awkward as they look (guess I just have to get used to them).
  • Full-fledged GTA title with built-in minigames and hours of gameplay.
