Ah yes, I fondly remember getting this game in 2009 for my brand new 3DS. I kept trying to show the game off to my friends but all they could focus on was the handheld.

It was actually originally released on DSLite. 3DS was not released in 2009. It was one of my fav games for the handheld I beat the game and very similar to the original GTA for PC. Probably one of the best titles released for DS.

Chinatown wars was one of my favorite GTA games and Ds games ever. Game was addicting. Unfortunately it didn't attract to the Nintendo crowd.

Considering Chinatown Wars flop on Nintendo DS and even the PSP port didn't help, I guess this mobile version should help for the cost. I didn't like Chinatown Wars controls for DS back then and I didn't finish the game but I did get the PSP version and that port was better then DS. That's the last time Rockstar will ever work with Nintendo.
