Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is another installment of the very popular series of action gangster games. It was originally designed for Nintendo DS. The PSP version was modified in order to fully utilize the potential of the handheld console. The most important difference is the improvement of the resolution of the game. It now also supports the panoramic mode used by Sony’s mobile console. The developers also improved lighting, and character animations as well as developed new missions that are part of the main storyline.
The story throws the player on the streets of the well known fictional Liberty City. The protagonist of the game is Huang Lee, a member of a Chinese criminal group, who is trying to prove his worth to his family, to avenge the death of his father and to reclaim Yu Jian – a valuable sword that for centuries was the symbol of Lee’s family honor. During the game the player travels through streets, avenues and dark alleys of the city and he slowly uncovers the truth about the crime and corruption among the Chinese triads.
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is available both in traditional (on UMD discs) and digital form (making it available for owners of PSP Go as well).
