If you're a hardcore fan of this series then I would say definitely rent this one. But if not then pass this one by.

The previous GTA's on PSP were fantastic. Incredibl graphics, music, controls. This one is just a lazy port over from the DS. Lame graphics, poor controls, no lyrics in the music?!?!?! WTH?!?!
And the whole game is an above view like the first GTA's ever made on the PC. Man oh man this is a big step backwards. I really hope this doesnt catch on and rockstar goes back to the way they used to do it for the PSP...

There's some interesting things in this game that I'd like to see in future GTA releases, but overall, I'm fairly disappointed in Chinatown Wars. Instead of "moving" cutscenes with voices, we get stills and captions. Instead of great radio stations with cool music, we get about 5 or 6 Euro trash disco stations that all basically sound the same.

Gameplay-wise...what is this, a rehashed version of the very first GTA? The only thing that's missing is the gurgly voices on the payphones.

Listen, I know there's a recession and everything, but cutting corners by saving money on music licensing and not having to pay actors for voice-overs is inexcusable, and not what I've come to expect with the GTA franchise.
