C.O.P. The Recruit makes you appreciate, if indeed it further needed your appreciation, the true worth of Chinatown Wars. It single-handedly validates Rockstar's decision to return to GTA's top down roots for its latest handheld release. No-one can doubt that Ubisoft's effort is a superb technical accomplishment, but games need more than that. They need soul, fun, life and personality - qualities Chinatown Wars has in spades, and that C.O.P. The Recruit is devoid of entirely.
