    This is very interesting - the fastest selling console game on iPhone. And in my opinion it's the best version since Vice City. Can't wait!

    Meh. This is not traditional GTA. It has an overhead view similar to the old GTAs. It's nice to see Rockstar take interest in the platform.

    It's not traditional because it contains one of the features which made the series so popular? :confused:

    Anyway, it's easily the best GTA game since Vice City. There's so much to do, an amazingly detailed city and a return to the cartoon style graphics which made GTA GTA.

    You do you care so much about a game you've obviously already played?

    That was English, just not very well structured English.

    I havent played it before, seeing as I do not own a DS. I do, however, own an iPhone, so this is good news to me.

    Awesome for R*. I won't buy ChinaTown wars unless it's cheap, I'm not a big double dipper. But also the Beaterator game is coming, so i'll probably buy that, just to support them

    I'm glad I passed on all the imitation iPhone GTAs. This one will be worth it (a month after it's released and the price is cut).

    Ooh, neato. If the controls are any good that'll be a must buy.

    I wonder how will the controls work. Given that you need to move forward, shot and aim at the same time.

    I can figure out a way, but it has holes.

    Check out Terminator: Salvation for the best third person controls I've used on the iPhone. Virtual stick to move, drag to aim, virtual button to shoot. I could see these working.

    We'll see what happens when it hits the review/approval process.

    As for controls, would some developer please use the proximity sensor as a button already?! Come on now...it would help a lot. If not, use dinosmash like controls.:D

    That would be really awesome, iPhone is becoming a pretty good gaming alternative to the psp and ds

    If Car Jack was actually fun, I would consider that a very nice competitor to GTA2 - I liked the top downs when that was all they had. Ahh those were the days.

    GTA3 and on however have seen no such competitor at all, on any platform, unless you count the more car oriented Driver series. (Which I admit, I like and play more, though it just isn't GTA)

    Now for mobile and handheld gaming - pfft, forget it. Chinatown is going to blow everything on the iPhone away in that category of gaming. Just like Real Racing is the clear winner in racing games, with NFS a far second - which I also like and play more.

    So let me hear your sultry interweb voices rejoice and join me in saying, let there be GTA. Let there be Chinatown Wars.
