I asked for this game for christmas, only knowing that it had been released on the Nintendo DS, and had a top-down view on that. I heard it was out for the PSP (That was the only reason I asked for it), thinking that it'd be like Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories or Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, which was a bit naive of me.. But that's not what we're here to talk about so I'll continue.

Upon turning on my PSP, and loading up the game.. It has the same loading style as other Grand Theft Auto games, and then it introduces with a top-down view. With that I was disappointed, I'd expected more from Rockstar, instead of an almost identical port of the DS game. But, after playing for about half an hour or so I was fine with the top-down view (I had tried to change the camera, don't worry!). After a while it just sticks, and you feel fine with the top-down view, and it doesn't affect the gamestyle play, other than the fact that it's harder to dodge traffic, though it doesn't happen enough to cause mass anger.

The mini-games are welcome in my eyes, and very enjoyable, as there are a few of them. The graphics are awesome, and it makes the most of the PSP's capabilities - The graphics wouldn't look out of place on a Playstation Two!

I don't want to cause controversy, but the other reviewers who have said that the top-down view is rubbish, buy another PSP game etc.... Sound like they haven't played the original Grand Theft Auto games that gave Rockstar a successful base on which to change the camera view with.

This game is near perfect, and it is easy to get addicted to it - Not just the missions, which aren't too challenging, but there are safehouses to buy, drugs to deal, cameras to destroy and little side missions like in all Grand Theft Autos since number three.

Definately worth buying!

First off, I have played other GTA games for the PSP and whilst they do have 'proper' 3D (Chinatown is still 3D, but from an overhead view)and real music, I found this to be the more engrossing title.

In fact the lack of spoken cutscenes and proper music meant that I could play this at work withound having the sound up too loud and still follow the storyline.

When I first loaded up I thought that the overhead view would be an annoyance but it didnt seem to be unless you were travelling under a train track and bumped into the unseen police car who would then give chase...

Anyhoo, loads to do. I spent a lot of the time looking for hidden street races and making a lot of cash with drug deals which had nothing to do with the story.

Get it!

I'm a huge GTA fan...

I've played all of the games since the 1st on my old 86x486 under MS-DOS. I love the 3D versions (GTA3 to 4) but i missed the old school type and when i've read about this one i just know i had to have it.

So i bought it for NDS and is great but i grew tired of the touch screen parts so since i also have a PSP 3004 model i bought this (after the price drop).
And i'm very happy with this version!

I like the NDS version, its great (especially the bottom screen use as PDA an Map) but the PSP is more fluid and does not have does touch screen mandatory parts like when you enter a car and have to hot wired it (it has this parts but with normal button control that made them more easy and fast).
The graphics are better and way more fluid (no frame rate issues like in the NDS). In the down side the menus take more to load (UMD have to be read) and also saving a game, but not that much to be a problem. (although i've read that the 1000 series PSP takes a lot longer to read the UMD).

If you are like me and have the 2 consoles, go for the PSP version, unless you really like touch screen parts on the games. Whatever version you buy you certainly will have a good time with this game (if you like GTA of course)

I've been a long term fan of the GTA series from when the series first started way back in the day, and I've found some of the more recent installments enjoyable but lacking in some of that original fun. Luckily with this game some of that originality has been recaptured. I've recently played GTA Vice City Stories on the PSP and found it a poor quality copy of the PS2 version, with no thought gone into changing anything for the smaller screen, making the map and icons essentially useless. But with Chinatown Wars they've gone back to the original style of top-down view and made the map much easier to use, a well as including car-jacking and bomb disposal mini-games to keep it more interesting. I prefer the way the story is dealt with in this too, using stills and text works much better than the poor quality FMV's used in VC. Overall I think it looks slicker than the other GTA games on the PSP and I think it works better for the handheld console than the full 3D versions, and feels smoother to play. If you liked the sense of humour of the first 2 GTA games and the style then you'll love this too, now if only they'd done the other handheld GTA games like this :)

I have spent a lot of time playing PSP games included GTA:LS Stories and GTA:VC Stories. Both of which I really enjoyed. VC Stories in particular was excellent fun. However, Chinatown Wars beats them both hands down.

Yes, it is different. It is top-down rather than 3D. The graphics are not as good and you need to be more forgiving with the controls (since it was based on the DS version), but it is just so much fun. You still have all the little odd-jobs (taxi's, police cars, tattoo studios etc), but you get random side missions, drug-dealing, and even just driving around the city is great.

The "wanted level" system has been re-done so you now need to destroy police cars to decrease it. This can be insanely frustrating, but is generally just a lot of fun (funny, I seem to using that word a lot in this review!!).

There is no spoken dialogue, but the music (specific to each boss) makes up for it, as does the great cartoon style art work. There are no songs on the soundtrack (like on previous games), which I was concerned about, but again, the stations provided do the job well. A custom soundtrack ability would be nice, but hey, this game is great without it.

One of the biggest problems with the previous GTA games for me was that it seemed more about beating the controls than the game. Some of the mission were easy in principle (shooting snipers on a roof or blowing up cars from a helicopter) but the game never allowed granular enough control to do the job effectively. This is not a problem on this version and is a huge improvement.
