Rockstar Games’ finest open-world gangland adventure gets its first outing on the iPhone.

Grand Theft Auto:Chinatown Wars Review

by on March 18, 2010

Grand_Theft_Auto_screenChinatown Wars gives Super Monkey Ball 2 a close run for its money for our coveted ‘best game on iPhone’ title, but one thing is for certain – gamers began to take note once they realised that these and numerous other quality titles were appearing on Apple’s smartphone.

Not only that, in many cases the iPhone versions of these games were just as much fun (if not more so) than the same games on the Nintendo DS or the Sony PSP. Mobile phone games were no longer throwaway, casual affairs.

In Chinatown Wars, for example, you can hustle and TWOC your way around the huge open-world of Liberty City as you play through the numerous missions and side-missions in the game.

Some gamers are always going to prefer the feel of physical buttons beneath their thumbs, which is fine, but Rockstar has implemented the iPhone’s touchscreen control almost perfectly into this splendid game. Something that other developers will hopefully start to learn from.

Music has always been an important aspect of any GTA game and it is no different here, with the option to listen to your own iTunes playlist via the in-game Independence FM radio station. It is these nice little touches that make the iPhone version of Chinatown Wars a handheld gaming classic.
