Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Info
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is an entirely original entry into the critically acclaimed Grand Theft Auto series, and brings a new level of interactivity to its sprawling open environments. With the use of the DS touch screen, players will navigate their way through the streets as they uncover the truth behind an epic tale of crime and corruption within the Triad crime syndicate, delivering the unprecedented amount of depth that has become a true trademark of the franchise.
GTA: Chinatown Wars will not be played in the third-person perspective like the recent outings in the franchise, instead it will go back to the series roots and take a top down perspective. The game will be cel-shaded, a first for the series, and take place in Liberty City which will contain ‘different routes’ to the ones we know.
Character Movement will be controlled via the touch screen while the R button will be used to lock-on to enemies and the D-pad will be used for aiming. The mobile phone seen in GTA IV will return in the form of a PDA. Players can use this to check their email, the map, play some tunes, check their positioning and get in contact with people. The PDA will track your game statistics which will be uploaded to Rockstar’s Website. Unfortunately no other details of the online multiplayer were released.
The game has been designed for a handheld, in that it’s perfect to play on the go. Missions have been made shorter and if failed will not make the player go back to the beginning, you will be able to continue from where you left off. The wanted system has also had a make over as now you’ll be forced to disable as many police vehicles as possible.
