I’m a big fan of the Grand Theft Auto series of games. I’ve bought them for the PS2, the Xbox 360, and it looks like soon I’ll be buying one for the iPhone. That’s because as of yesterday, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is now available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
What makes this version so different from the latest models on the consoles? As of GTA III, the series ditched the overhead view and made it more 3-d, and more personal. Chinatown Wars goes back to those overhead days, bringing a sense of nostalgia to the game. As an added bonus, this makes it easier to play on a portable, which made it a huge hit on the Nintendo DS. Now that it’s on the iPhone, it’s a sure thing that sales will increase.
