Here it is. The best Nintendo DS game you'll ever play. Period. There are other games that deserved that statement, such as The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hour Glass or Animal Crossing: Wild World, but the various levels of achievement found within GTA: Chinatown Wars are so vast, it has elevated the bar for what's possible not only on the system, but for developers with vision, despite limitations, further than anyone who's tackled DS development since the machine's inception.
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars continues the tradition of extended family and colourful people Rockstar and the GTA series have become known for. GTA: San Andreas saw players embodying a young African American, GTA IV an off-the-boat Russian immigrant and most recently, GTA IV: The Lost and Damned, a Jewish member of the biker club, The Lost – all different people with unique perspectives and outlooks, and all fitting because of the diverse face of Liberty City. There's no way you'd get all Rockstar have injected into the infamous town without unique characters to offer reflective (and relevant) insights.
