Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

Summary: The storyline is pretty good. I'm still trying to figure out how to progress in the game through the billboard in your apartment. If you do buy this game, I suggest you get the manual. Do not get this game for your kids.
Summary: I've never played any of the Grand Theft Auto precursors, so the Nintendo DS version is my first. The "Mature" label is a crock. "Outlaw" or "Dumb Thug" or "Braindead Bully" would be closer to the mark. There are no hookers in this game, and no pr0n to speak of. This GTA is trading on the infamy it might have had on other platforms.
Summary: I was thrilled when a GTA for the DS was announced. This is the first GTA I have played. However, a warning to all; don't expect this game to be mild just because of the system, this game deserves the M rating it got. First, the controls are fine, except for the aiming. Oh, the aiming. You press R to lock on, but in the middle of a firefight, the targeting system is so crappy that you will target an innocent hobo behind you while the cop in front of you wastes you.

However, as soon as I saw this game advertised on TV, it had looked like the game would ...
