Honor among thieves is a concept known in any culture, and no criminal organization can last without deep, unquestioning trust among its members. In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, players discover a betrayal of that trust: corruption that runs to the core of a Triad crime syndicate. Most of the action in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is viewed from an angled, top-down perspective on the city streets, more similar to the pre-GTA3 games in the series. Originally developed for the DS, the PSP version of Chinatown Wars features spruced-up graphics and an original soundtrack, and the former's stylus-based controls have been replaced by more traditional analog maneuvering. The driving sequences and mini-games remain however, once again representing iniquitous activities such as hotwiring cars, dealing drugs, and digging through debris for stashed goods. Fans will find the same open world, emergent adventure, violent action, pop-culture riffing, and dark humor that make the Grand Theft Auto series the most glorified and notorious of its time. What they won't find is a rehash of previous adventures with the likes of Tommy Vercetti or Niko Bellic. Forget it. It's Chinatown. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
