Grand Theft Auto: ChinaTown Wars Gameplay

Posted by Darren Calvert

Dealing and Delivering

Fancy yourself as a bit of a drug dealer do ya? No of course you don’t, you’re a DS gamer after all! Well just pretend you are delivering Christmas presents rather than narcotics and you’ll be fine.

Following his father’s murder, Huang Lee has a simple mission: deliver an ancient sword to his Uncle Kenny to ensure his family retains control of the Triad gangs of Liberty City. Huang is a spoiled rich kid who expects everything to run smoothly, but his trip does not go exactly as planned. After being robbed and left to die, he will search for honor, riches and revenge in the most dangerous and morally bankrupt city in the world.

As you can see from the video below Chinatown Wars is looking set to be one of the best looking games to date on the DS. Rockstar seem to be pushing the humble DS hardware to its very limits. It’s difficult to say if a violent game based around the subject of drug dealing will be a good fit for the Nintendo crowd, but Rockstar are obviously confident that there will be a audience ready to snap this up when it comes out next week.


Grand Theft Auto: ChinaTown Wars will be out in the shops next Tuesday for North America and next Friday in Europe. Do let us know in the comments box below if you intend to pick it up after watching the trailer.

Hm, not sure on this one. I seem to always get the GTA games and never finish them. Looks good though.

Wow, that looks really fun. Like the old original overhead one! I love it. I never got into the modern sandbox ones like everyone else did, but this looks great, especially the touch screen material. neato.

It seems like a great blending of the best of the overhead games with the best of the 3D ones. I'll pick this up if it reviews good.

It'll sell tons, but I have a feeling that this will be the the next target for soccer moms. Read the frickin' ESRB ratings, people!

I'm going to go against the grain now and say I don't think it will sell that well at all until it starts appearing on Christmas lists, and Mums and Dads go in to buy it completely oblivious of its content. You know, like with every GTA, every year. The joy.
