*Update - USA can now get the game from the app store! Click Here!
Rockstar has just released GTA Chinatown wars on the iPhone / iPod, well for everyone in Europe. Americans will have to wait until January 18th to download the game from iTunes. Since I don't live in Europe, I will have to wait patiently for a few more hours. Until then my good friend Psy has posted his first impressions of the game.
"Control scheme takes quite a bit of getting used to. There's an on-screen analog stick that you've got to move in whatever direction you wish to travel on foot. That's kind of complicated and your thumb takes up like quarter of the screen but after awhile I'd kind of got used to it. When driving there's different buttons that appear and the steering is pretty hard. There are two different buttons, one for left and one for right and it's just awkward trying to keep your fingers out of the way while you're driving at speed. Definitely takes a bit of getting used to. Personally I think using the accelerometer would have been a better way of moving, but I guess eventually I'll get the hang of it. Not good for your screen though, smearing fingerprints all over it while running around. Graphics are awesome, looks just like the DS version and loading times are pretty short indeed. Can't complain for £6 though (presumably that's $10). Just the controls is the main issue but there's not really many other things they could have done I suppose."
If you do live in Europe, please click the following link, it will take you to the iTunes Store!
