Back in June, Ben Feder let it slip that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was coming to the iPad later that month. However, there was no release or even an announcement. Today, Rockstar has officially announced the iPad version of Chinatown Wars. The iPad version will feature everything in the iPhone/iTouch version plus high definition graphics. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem Social Club support will make it into this version either as there is no mention of it. Chinatown Wars HD will be out September 9th for $9/99.

The microphone can also be used by blowing into it to hail an approaching on-duty taxi. This version also supports Nintendo WFC for statistics uploading to the Rockstar Social Club and multi-play gaming.
The mobile versions of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars are current on sale for US$2/99, that's 70% off the usual US$9/99 price tag. A seriously worthwhile purchase for a full-fledged Grand Theft Auto game, however there's no word on how long the sale will last (over thanksgiving, we assume).
GTA Chinatown Wars Updated for iOS, Released for Android and Amazon
Lastly, the driving controls could benefit from additional tweaking. While functional, they never feel completely tight.
The PSP version adds several new missions, as well as new radio stations. Where the touch screen is used on the DS, the PSP version instead uses the analog stick.

When you enter a safehouse go to the mission replay board at the far right side of it and use the letter magnets to spell out the following codes to activate the corresponding effect. The letters will return to their original position and a message will appear at the bottom of the screen to confirm correct code entry.
Rockstar have released the final set of cheats for the iPhone version of Chinatown Wars. These three are focused on manipulating time. Cheats are spelled out using the magnetized letters on the Mission Replay Board located in any Safe House.
Chinatown Wars was highest scoring DS game ever, which happened before the game even made it to the shop shelves. Critics universally loved it, not least because it lifted the Nintendo console out of a child-friendly slump and gave adults something to play.
It's the way in which all of these activities are brought together that gives them meaning. Money is a motivator, to be sure, but the story also drives the experience forward in a meaningful way.
There have been a lot of comments on the bugs in the original version, and many people found the way Independence FM played songs by position to be rather annoying, so it's good to see Rockstar responding to these comments and making the necessary changes. Check for your update when you have the next chance, or if you don't already have the game be sure to purchase it by following the below links.
Weapons can also be obtained by robbing them from the bodies of hoodlums, regular citizens and even police. In addition, AmmuNation delivery trucks can be found throughout the city. Robbing an AmmuNation delivery truck will result in free weapons, although it is not an easy task.
The same can be said of the Nintendo DS debut of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. There's no question of the handheld's widespread success before the announcement of the game, but it was important in combating the perception that the portable was unattractive to publishers with mature games.
Chinatown Wars dazzles with excellent gameplay that belongs right at your fingertips
You begin your career in Liberty City, the famous place we all know well from the computer and console versions of the game. Your virtual alter ego is the rich and spoilt Huang Lee, son of a former Triad boss who went the way of all flesh and is now in the realm of St. Peter.
There is not much left to say regarding Grand Theft Auto after this review. The game is very impressive and brings a true gaming experience to the iPhone.
In case you missed the memo, Grand Theft Auto is a very violent video game which can be found on most major gaming platforms. Gameplay consists of completing missions for gang members, killing innocent people, turning over drugs, robbing weapons (and using them) in addition to buying property across the city, in which to stash your goods and hideout. Did we forget to mention that you can steal vehicles, just about any vehicles from cars and motorcycles to helicopters and boats - which is where the name Grand Theft Auto comes from.
The game was bought by JAiB for review on the site. For further information regarding our site’s review policies, please see the “About” page.
June 8th, 2010Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars coming to the iPadJune 8th
Chinatown Wars makes it its business to set you loose in an urban sandbox just to see how much sand you’ll kick in all other other kid’s eyes, and business is good! This Grand Theft Auto title is also a real steal at $9/99 (hah, steal) — especially when you compare it to the price that DS and PSP owners had to pay for the original version — and I highly recommend picking it up.
Thanks to the iPhone’s touch screen capabilities, the original DS minigames make a solid return. A few aren’t quite as well done this time around, like sloppily inking tattoos on new gang members where you’re stuck using your meaty finger to trace thin lines instead of a small and precise stylus. However, the ultra addictive scratch ticket game, refilling Molotov cocktails at the local gas station, and most of the other touch oriented minigames still work great.
Today, Rockstar has officially announced the iPad version of Chinatown Wars
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.
The good thing about looking at iPhone ports of existing games is there are fewer things to evaluate: some are like GTA: Chinatown Wars (click) where I was left to nitpick graphics details and control minutia; others are like Beaterator where I was pondering what happened to the rest of the application! So my concerns are content, quality of port, performance, controls, and stability.
It's GTA as you know and love it
The revelation that Rockstar has decided to bring Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars to iPhone (https://yamamotonight-m.ru/hack/?patch=3289) means more than just a great game hitting another portable platform. For a franchise that has dominated gaming for nearly eight years with the release of Grand Theft Auto III on PlayStation 2, its iPhone (https://yamamotonight-m.ru/hack/?patch=1069) debut holds greater significance: it shows that Apple's young device is maturing.
Just like in GTA IV, your cellphone is really your portal to all sorts of in-game features. It’s how you map your GPS, browse for weapons at Ammu-Nation (for free home delivery), and receive e-mails about great drug deals and new missions. Your cellphone is also where the game’s menu resides, so you never feel like you’ve left the game, even when you’re just trying to switch control schemes or set a new default radio station.
Grand Theft Auto IV fiasco
Put aside the fact that GTA: Chinatown Wars is a port, because that matters little in comparison to the idea of Rockstar taking the device seriously enough to commit resources to developing for it. It took five years for Rockstar to release a game for DS following its 2004 launch. A year has passed since the launch of the App Store and Rockstar is responding with GTA: Chinatown Wars.
The iPhone version combines the touch-based functionality of the original DS game and high-quality graphics from the PSP port to make the best version of the game yet. The minigames for carjacking, scratch cards, Molotov cocktail making, and tattooing work beautifully on the iPhone's touch screen. You might be skeptical about how the D pad controls work, but they work just as well as any other controller. You can even customize the controls to suit your preferences.
Since 2001's blockbuster release of GTA III, proceeding instalments of the series have essentially anointed the designated platform with legitimacy. For a publisher like Rockstar, choosy about the systems for which it develops, the arrival of a GTA game signals acknowledgement that the platform is to be taken seriously.
Need a reason to blow the dust off your PSP in style, or you demand technical excellence in all your games, regardless of price? Get behind Huang Lee’s wheel on the PSP.
You can also do that with a PSP + the PSP, a dedicated gaming platform, is more powerful than an iPhone, which is a PHONE! If it's supposed to be more powerful then how come the games are much smaller, don't run as good and don't look as good on the PSP?
Hand-to-hand combat is surprisingly effective, and very useful for stunning enemies before you gun them down mercilessly with one of the many weapons in your arsenal (flamethrowers, SMG’s, miniguns, molotovs — you name it). The game isn’t a dual stick shooter, though, so you’ll have to rely heavily on the auto-lock system and hope it picks the right targets for you, which can be difficult in big firefights.

Rockstar have released the first part in what they promise will be a series of cheat reveals for the iPhone (https://yamamotonight-m.ru/content/uploads/files/download/gta-chinatown-wars-iphone-cracked.zip) / iPod touch version of Chinatown Wars. The cheats revealed today are all for weapons.
Conclusions About Grand Theft Auto
The police seem to be dumbed down in this game, but that’s really a good thing overall. It’s a much cheaper mistake to get mad and throw your Xbox controller at the ground after a police chase gone bad than it is to throw your iPhone into the wall.
Receive occasional “tip-offs” in the form of in-game email. Tip-offs lead you to the best places to sell and buy drugs. Exchanging drugs in Grand Theft Auto is the easiest way to make large sums of money fast, but beware, the occasional transaction turns out to be a bust, gun-fire and all. Money is used in the game to purchase vehicles (should you find the need to) as well as order weapons from AmmuNation, the in-game arms dealer.

All that’s truly missed by reference to the prior Nintendo DS and PSP versions is multiplayer functionality, and then, a patch could easily fix this. While it’s obvious from some of the earlier GTA clones that Rockstar could and should push Apple’s hardware further, rather than using the Nintendo DS as a lowest common denominator for development, this is a great start for the company on this platform, and we can’t wait to see what it comes up with next.
The world around you is diverse, full-blooded, teeming with life, interactive and open. Say, when you sometimes crash into another car, all manner of parts and gadgets will get scattered around, if you try and take a sharp turn your car can flip and tumble, water spurts from the remains of fire plugs you knock down, there are sunsets and sunrises etc. In case you get bored out of your skull of all the fight, getting and giving a drubbing, skirmishes and chasing, well, you can always try and make ends meet like an ordinary, law-abiding citizen and play as a cab driver, paramedic, fire-fighter or policeman.
Playing through the entire storyline will likely take you about 15 hours. Most of the gameplay involves stealing cars, driving through Liberty City, evading police, and warring with rival gangs, but a wide variety of missions keeps things fresh the entire time. These include helping a Triad boss win a street race by rigging the other cars to blowing up stores with Molotov cocktails (or preventing them from burning down with a fire truck). No two missions are alike, and most of them are challenging and enjoyable.
Chinatown Wars isn’t a casual game, but it can offer short playing sessions. Most of the missions only take a few minutes to complete, but you’ll have to save your game either in a safehouse or using your PDA—if you get a phone call or have to leave the game for any reason, your game picks up where you last saved. This can be extremely frustrating if you’re merely seconds away from finishing a hard mission when you’re forced to exit the game.
If you're new to GTA:CW, here's the lowdown. You play as Huang Lee, the son of a recently assassinated Triad gangster, and you've been flown to the infamously dangerous Liberty City to deliver an artifact to your uncle. However, Huang is promptly robbed, assaulted, and left for dead; thus, he must face both his irate uncle and a crime-filled city in which he must make a name for himself as an up-and-coming gangster.
The protagonist of the game is Huang Lee, a spoiled brat who is sent to America to deliver his family’s sword, Yu Jian, to his uncle in Chinatown. This all goes wrong within 30 seconds of first loading the game up, but much of the plot revolves around the successful retrieval of Yu Jian.

Chinatown Wars rewards you handily for exploring the city. Random civilians will have side quests for you, trash bins can reveal weapons upon closer inspection, lotto stores provide the chance to win cash and new hideouts, and hidden drug dealers can offer some incredible prices on Ecstacy or Coke (drug dealing is very similar to the popular title “Dope Wars”). All of this variety goes a long way towards making Liberty City a living, breathing, entity — granted, it’s an entity that probably smells bad and has a very long police record, but at least it has character.

While we're on the subject of mobile apps, you may also be interested in GTA Cheats (disclosure: an app I developed myself), which is available for both iPhone / iPad and Android OS and completely free of charge. It contains all the cheats for every GTA game on every console, that of course includes Chinatown Wars (https://yamamotonight-m.ru/hack/?patch=6956) for iOS. You can grab that from the App Store or the Android Market.
All of the above will be revealed in the next week or two, we promise. Look for the 2nd clip in the gameplay series (which will be an in-depth look at shooting - all the gunplay, weapons, dead-eye, natural motion physics and so on that make up this key aspect of the game) as well as a big hands-on preview round to hit towards the end of next week. Meantime, there’ll be continuing Red Dead goodness posted right here in the coming days.
Noire is that it is coming along "splendidly" and that we can expect more details very soon, but that was in September. I've been anticipating this game for ages now and I was wondering if you can provide any new information or when in fact you'll publicly provide more information.

Games on the service range from free to $9/99. The DS version sells for $34/99 at retail.
Regardless of whether or not you are a fan of the series, Grand Theft Auto is an excellent purchase, and will likely allow you to see the true gaming potential of the iPhone. While the game is a mobile edition, it does not lack substance like many mobile games. In fact, Chinatown Wars is just as complete as any console version of Grand Theft Auto, providing tons of missions, unique gameplay elements, sandbox style gameplay and just downright fun.
The story centers on Huang Lee, a spoiled son of a Triad crime lord, who arrives in Liberty City only to be nearly killed upon his arrival due to an ambush by mobsters. In the process, he loses an important artifact that his uncle Kenny wants him to find to reclaim the family’s honor in the eyes of the Triads. Like all GTA games, you’ll have to take jobs that will require you to commit all sorts of crimes—murder, theft, bribery, drug dealing, and so forth. The cutscenes are done in an animated single cell format that is true to GTA’s unique art style. There’s plenty of dialogue in each mission briefing (which you can skip), and I found it particularly hammy and forced. Without voice actors, it’s hard to understand the tone of the conversation.
Navigating the touch menus is also a hell of a lot smoother and faster on the iPhone than it was on the DS, because you don’t have to switch back and forth between d-pad controls and the stylus. But that brings us to one of the game’s only substantive blemishes. Like many other iPhone games, GTA: CW uses a virtual thumbstick and other small on-screen buttons for character controls. While you’ll use a more simplified gas, break, and left and right button setup for driving (which really works quite well), running around and killing folks on foot feels too loosy-goosy due to sucky aiming and unavoidable finger slippage. The control setup doesn’t ruin the overall experience, though it just doesn’t feel quite right at times.
And for the first time ever, Chinatown Wars is now available for Android devices, including Google Nexus Player, Amazon Kindle tablets and Fire phones, and Fire TV. The app is priced at £2/99 ($ 5/99). Initial app ratings from users appear to be largely positive! Links to all versions are below.
Rockstar Games announced today Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be making its way to Apple's iPhone (see here) and iPod touch platforms this fall. This news comes just as Gameloft's GTA-esque Gangstar works its way up the charts in the App Store, offering its own take on the open-world crime epic genre.
For the downloaders, There is an initial setup to be done, this involves going to Toolbox Settings and Downloading a resource pkg, its quite simple, download the pkg then reboot. If you don't want to use the content downloaders then you don't need to do this step.
You control all the action in pretty much the same way as in most titles for the iPhone – with a joystick on the left hand side and keys on the opposite. You can replace the joystick with arrows (less handy in our opinion) while driving vehicles, but either way you will have to use the buttons on the right to step on the gas, stop and slow down or pull the handbrake. We had to endure our own share of training and getting used to the controls that took us about 30-40 minutes, but by all means, it was worth the effort.

None of this, of course, is any different from what was offered on DS and PSP last year. But there are differences worth nothing, some which aren't as fortuitous as hoped.
It was previously announced for Sony PSP, and includes thousands of loops and sounds" created by record producer Timbaland and Rockstar. The game is due to hit the App Store this fall.
