Grand Theft Auto makes the jump from the big screen to Nintendo’s small screen.

Whenever studios branch out and transform series well suited for consoles into the handheld format, there is always an element of risk – none more a prolific example than Rockstar’s GTA Chinatown Wars for the DS. Though we’ve already seen the Grand...

I just got this game and have only played for an hour but I love it so far. I can't believe how much it feels like GTA4. The touchscreen works really well and is a lot of fun to use with this game. I never thought Liberty City could be this awesome on the DS. Great job Rockstar! I'm really looking forward to the next DS GTA game.
