Released just a few hours ago, the long awaited Grand Theft Auto : Chinatown Wars has finally landed on the iPhone and iPod touch priced at $9.99.
The game was originally programmed for the Nintendo DS and was successfully ported to the PSP before it crossed over to the new gaming platform provided by the iPhone. The 2.5D game is more akin to the old top-down GTA1 and GTAII series than the modern 3D versions but still remains true to the tried and tested rob, steal and get rich without dying GTA formula. It’s definitely worth a blast if you don’t own it on another platform.
Following his father’s murder, Huang Lee has a simple mission: deliver an ancient sword to his Uncle Kenny to ensure his family retains control of the Triad gangs of Liberty City. Huang is a spoiled rich kid who expects everything to run smoothly, but his trip does not go exactly as planned. After being robbed and left to die, he will search for honor, riches and revenge in the most dangerous and morally bankrupt city in the world.
