:lol: It's amusing how quickly my scans go from a PM to random websites.


Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
- 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 thought this was going to be like traditional post-3 GTAs.

Scans look kinda meh, hope it looks better in action. Those dont inspire much confidence, I'm getting the GTA Advance feel here.

I'm glad you were wrong.
Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

...saddened. I don't want an isometric camera angle. I wanted it like postGTA3, and Transformers DS like cameras.

Looks about like the GBA port with slightly more detail. Oh well. IMO Nintendo should have shelled out the money to get a decent wii game.

The moment they include a touch-screen hooker minigame is the moment they boost sales 300%.

It's about time for another M-rated game on the DS. This will be #5 (U.S. releases only) if I'm counting right. If released in 2009, they'll have their quota of "1 per year".

Is this the official thread? If not, can someone direct me to it.

I just wanted to know if there were any pre-order bonuses for this game. I know Amazon has an unlockable car.
My eBay link.
I am PayPal verified and have 100% feedback since June 2004.
