The few flaws aside, the GTA franchise thrives on the system, with missions becoming more focused and a second screen allowing for easy PDA, or menu access. Informative e-mails about tasks and front door delivery of weapons also keep everything up to date and accessible. Possibly most importantly, the stylus serves as a valuable tool throughout the title, becoming an essential element for the player and in-game character, Huang. It also doesn't hurt that a gorgeous, cel-shaded Liberty City serves as a backdrop to all the action. Thus, Chinatown Wars not only lives up to its series' namesake, it pushes the boundaries of what's possible on Nintendo's handheld system.
