MTV Multiplayer writes: "While certain features of "Grand Theft Auto" games can elicit scandalized reactions, those same features - including the already-notorious drug-dealing game in the DS' upcoming "Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars" - often exhibit some clever gameplay mechanics. Seriously.
The M-rated "Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars" that arrives in mid-March will let players virtually deal heroin, ecstasy, weed, cocaine, acid and downers. That much was revealed when Edge magazine featured the game in a cover story a couple of months. The article's author mentioned this aspect, an apparent ode to the old, popular PDA game "Dope Wars." For some, that might be all the information needed to write this game off as another one of those "GTA" games glamorizing bad behavior."
