Has GTA IV influenced you to commit crimes?

Nope, it's just a game.
Only petty crimes.
Stealing has become a hobby.
Yes, can't say more, cops are coming.

Cartman in new South Park episode.

The latest episode of South Park (titled "Margaritaville") features several references to the Grand Theft Auto series:

Cartman: "Of all the times for people to decide to stop buying things, it had to be the week that Grand Theft Auto 4 comes out for Nintendo DS."

Cartman: "I had a dream last night. I was in a field, and I had Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars right next to me. But then the sky went black, and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars just melted in my hand."

Cartman: "The person you're after might be hard to get, but I can bring him to you - and all I want in return is Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for handheld Nintendo DS."

Thanks to PlanetGTA for the news.

CW: More Reviews

Posted by TenaciousD. at 20:54. Category: General

IGN, EuroGamer, GamePro, CVG and 1UP have all posted reviews of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. Each review was very positive, with the game not scoring below 90% in any of the reviews.

There are new screenshots for the game included with most of the reviews.



CW: First review

Posted by saintdave at 17:11. Category: General


Nintendo - The official magazine (issue 41, April 2009) has a “world exclusive review” on Chinatown Wars as revealed in the following thread.

The review also reveals some facts regarding the multiplayer side of the game.

- Survivor mode is the standard multiplayer death match played either over Wi-Fi with a nearby Chinatown Wars-owning pal or online. With police involved too, it gets pretty frantic.

- You can destroy all your rivals stuff, then plant a bomb in their base in the charmingly-titles gang bang multiplayer mode. It’s utterly chaotic and offers surprisingly tactical fun.

- Single race and season are the vehicle-based multiplayer modes and are both great fun with a friend. You can also turn on a death race option to bump up the weapon count and overall chaos a notch.

- Fight off wave after wave of mobsters in the defend the base co-op mode. As with all the multiplayer options, you can choose your battle ground from a variety of locales. Smart use of grenades is key.

- You can even give a friend a stash of cash or drugs over Wi-Fi. As well as that you can also send them details of your ‘favourites’ on the Liberty City map in order to guide them towards other cool stuff.

Their verdict? Pros - Enormous game map, fantastic visuals, classic GTA gameplay, quality multiplayer modes. Cons - Dangerously addictive. Vast, visually stunning and every bit as good as any other GTA. And that’s no mean feat. 94%.
