So what do we have here, overall? Without a doubt, Chinatown Wars is the kind of experience the DS has been missing. Though lacking a stellar story, the game is a more than solid iteration. Returning to its violent roots serves the game very well, and fans of the original top-down style of the first two games in the series are in for a nostalgiac treat. And when all the aspects come together, it's a terrific package you shouldn't be without.
