grand-theft-auto-chinatown-wars-20080716021815266_640w-150x150In the wake of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars [App Store] our forums have been host to a great discussion surrounding the game, and something that has been popping up quite a bit of debating the merits of each of the different platforms that Chinatown Wars is available for. The iPhone currently holds the advantage when it comes to pricing, but without real physical controls or good targeting system for fighting, both the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP versions hold their own in this battle.

The DS obviously lags behind in the graphical department, but makes up for it with the second dedicated screen for navigation and stylus mini-games-- All of which feel much more immersive than the button mashing alternative on the PSP. In regards to whether the PSP or iPhone is host to better graphics, it really seems to be a toss up. The textures in the PSP version appear more crisp and detailed, especially when looking at any signs and the PSP features better shadows, lighting, and reflections. The higher resolution (and seemingly higher quality) iPhone screen combined with the softening of textures and edges of in-game objects makes the iPhone a worthy competitor in visual quality, especially when combined with the high frame rate the game runs at.

Something that isn't immediately apparent until you're comparing the games side by side is how quiet Liberty City is without the pedestrian chatter. You can go rampaging through the streets and it seems everyone is yelling at you on the DS and PSP. It creates a noticeable lack of atmosphere on the iPhone when switching back from the other two versions.


[ Full HD version | Low Bandwidth version ]

Which version is the "best" is really a matter of personal taste. The PSP's higher quality textures can often look gritty at times, and while some may prefer the softer look of the iPhone textures, others could see them as blurry. It's hard to compare the DS, especially because of how different the game feels with two screens and how obvious it is that the touchscreen mini-games were designed for a stylus, not buttons or fingers. Also, neither the PSP or iPhone can compete with the requisite DS microphone gimmick of actually whistling to hail a cab.

So which version do we recommend purchasing? Really, you should buy Chinatown Wars for whatever platform you have with you the most when you want to play games. For many people this will be the iPhone, but if you prefer to conserve your battery and play 3D games on a dedicated gaming device, both the DS and PSP versions are totally worth having. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is a great game, and it doesn't really matter what platform you're playing it on, as long as you're playing it. You really shouldn't miss this game.

    You mention the ability to hail a cab on the DS using the mic. Why isn't this possible on the iPhone? It would be a good question to ask R*. I don't have a PSP or a DS but I'm still pretty happy with the game.

    • Bruce

      I suspect they left it out because they didn't want to put in a feature only available to iPhone yet not iPod.

    • nightbeaver

      to hail a cab you need to hold you finger on the top of the screen to the right of the gps minimap. of there is a cab available your character will whistle and then and the cab will stop if there is no cabs available the character will just hold his hand up until an available cab comes by

    I have the iPhone version and I also have it on my PSP-GO.. I prefer it on my psp, i think it looks slighty better, but the main reason is the much easier controls.. Both are great though . not tried the DS version so can't comment in that

  • Peter321

    @Str1f3 - probably because it wouldn't work on the iPod Touch without a headset with a mic ;-)

    They could have made it an option, but I would have rather they added the voices instead, that seems like more of a loss.

    • Str1f3

      The latter point about the voices is a very good point and is more significant but I think it would require very little effort for support of the iPhone's microphone. Apps like Dragon Dictation and Bing search support the iPod touch and allow for microphone use with the proper headphones.

    The PSP version seems to be clearly the best of them all, considering the graphics. Gameplaywise I would choose the DS Version because of all the touch mechanics build into the game. The Graphics are the second best on the iPhone, the DS lacks in that category.

    ok, the graphics are better on the psp, but the psp screen itself is a lot worse than the iphone/ipod touch screen. (at least for the psp go) Look at all those lines.

    • freak in the dark

      Your stupid! it only looks bad on video, but the new psp screens are actually BETTER than the ipod touch screens. You get more colors, it has a better contrast ratio and better refresh rate. You can't even notice the scanlines when playing.

    Big shame about the lack of chatter. It really adds an additional layer to the atmosphere and player immersion.

    Would bundling in these sound files into an update really add that much extra weight in megabytes?

    i've played the game on PSP and DS and can't rave enough about the idevice release. Toucharcade have nailed it putting it down to personal taste - each platform has it's pros and cons. It's a solid game with so much depth whatever your taste. Game of the year!!!

  • Xytraguptorh

    I bought it for the iPhone today, and I also have it on the PSP Go. I'd have to say I prefer the controls on the PSP by quite a bit. As for graphics, I think the PSP wins too. Not only can you see more fine detail, but it just appears to have better contrast and color, and deeper blacks. The one disadvantage is that you see more stairstepping on the edge of objects. The iPhone version looks smoother, but it's also softer looking with grays rather than blacks during cutscenes. It's still very impressive though.

    For $10 this game is a steal. It's still $29.95 at the Playstation store, so I hope people buy it in droves for ten bucks rather than complaining about its high price.

    • Remon

      Yep, did buy it for $10,- as soon as I read this and all the other great reviews from touch arcade on gta. I'm all for promoting games like this! Keep them coming 

    Hmm. The game is 600MB fat, while the DS version only has 80MB and the DS version does include voice stuff? #WTF

    • Radek

      I believe the DS version uses MIDIs for music.

    • yoshi1080

      Where do you see it's 600MB? In iTunes it says 188MB.

      @topic: Don't know about yours, but in the German Playstation Store it's 36€ – 4.5x as expensive as the iPhone version! I've got a Go, too, so the cheaper UMD version wasn't an option for me. Due to the better controls and voices, I think I'd prefer the PSP version, but not at that price. Plus, I think the mini games work really well on the iPhone! I didn't miss a stylus so far.

      • SiDCrAzY

        @Yoshi

        When the game installs to your iPhone/iPod the size increases to 600mbs or so. It's only 188mb on iTunes, as it is compressed there.

  • Icepulse

    In the DS version, the train tracks would go partially transparent when you moved beneath them. This is lacking in the iPhone ver. and it's a big oversight. It's very distracting. That aside, they did a fantastic job.

  • ltcommander.data

    I agree with the differences pointed out between platforms since it's what I and others have found in the forum. Personally, I think the iPhone version turned out great in respects to the other platforms since the softer textures and edges seem to reduce the aliasing compared to other platforms while the higher screen resolution still makes everything look crisp and detailed. And for the price and given the platform it's difficult to complain.

    I too hope that Rockstar adds back the pedestrian chatter in a free update. The missing radio stations would legitimately be too big, but the chatter is an integral part of the atmosphere and shouldn't be that huge in comparison. If size is such a concern maybe Rockstar could pare down the pedestrian chatter variety before implementing it and include an option to disable the chatter if people don't want it or find it too repetitive.

    And the other major difference between the platforms that I don't believe was mentioned here, is that the iPhone version lacks multiplayer compared to the DS and PSP versions.

  • J-Assassinq

    Well I own it on each system and each is great in it's own way. But there's something I've been trying desperately to figure out, on both the DS and PSP versions you could do burnouts by holding the gas and brake for a few seconds and then releasing the brake(it can only be done in select cars however); this would leave flames behind in your treadmarks and you could set people on fire(a necessary move for losing the cops). So has anyone figured this out in the iPhone version?

    • oneMan

      I have the game on my iPod touch and figured this move out somehow myself (it happened once randomly and then I tried until I figured out how to do that ;) )

      It needs some practise, maybe it can be done easily, but I do it like this: When I am in a car/bike and am not moving or moving slowly, I slide my finger (without releasing the screen) from Gas to Brake (to use handbrake as the game itself learned me).
      Your car shouldn't move now. Then I slide my finger from Brake back to Gas. If you made it correctly, you can see your wheels rotating, but your car not moving.
      Now just release the Gas button, then immediately tap it again and you will make a burnout!
      (the longer you hold the gas button, the better burnout you will do ;) )
      And yes, doesn't work for every vehicle.

      I hope this helped.
      Sorry for my English.

    Wow, to me the iPhone version looks the best on that vid. More chatter would be nice, but not a deal breaker by any stretch.

      In the video the PSP version shows a lot of horizontal scan lines, but in reality you don't see any of that if you get the PSP version. The colors look washed out in that video too, which isn't accurate.

    If devs started making 3rd gen iPod Touch and iPhone 3GS-specific titles, then a 3GS-Specific GTA would be way superior to the PSP version.
    Surely they could do that, whilst still keeping owners of older hardware happy?

    • Schnapple

      Yeah it's already happening. There's a total of two different hardware configs and so it's not too difficult to say "am I on a 3GS? Then do this. Else do this". Touch Arcade has covered some of these. Plus then you don't have two different apps and so you can enter the charts correctly.

    Rockstar should look into the different driving methods used in maybe other iPhone driving games and get a sense of how it should be done on the iPhone...just something else, the driving isn't very fun with that control method.

    I know daring to question a review will upset some of the more sycophantic members, so I apologize in advance....but I must take issue with the fact that graphics and sound do not a game make. As a gamer with the choice of all the platforms discussed the most relevant issue to be discussed is surely the differences in control; I want to know about the graphics and audio sure...but gameplay is key, especially when considering a game with strong action elements that frequently calls into play quick thinking and reflexes.

    How one can discuss this game in terms of the differences and relative merits of these three platforms (all with such unique input and control) without mentioning the control or gameplay is absolutely beyond me....

    • PahnCrd

      Honestly, I don't see what is so difficult about the controls. I am able to play about 95% as ably with the iPhone as I was with the craptacular PSP joystick. All in all, I am pretty used to using the iPhone controls and I am able to play without issue.

      I suppose it is like any new control system. You will need practice with it before being proficient. Why would anyone expect it to be any other way?

    Unrelated to this review I know, but does anyone know how much behavioral difference there is between the various cars/trucks etc? I see some of the sports cars are pretty nippy, but I'm wondering if maybe the heavier vehicles are more resistant to damage and so on? Thanks in advance: )

    • Gnarkill

      Your curiosity is correct. Sports cars and motorcycles are much easier to destroy than delivery vans, the Patriot, bulldozer, or the city bus. and besides damage many cars handle and drive differently. some won't stop spinning tires for a block or so, and the cars also differ in the quickness that they can turn.

      The thing that amazes me the most is this is almost the entire city of GTA4, only island excluded is the third large island with the industrial park and the hidden sultan gt ;)

      • MrMuesli

        Thanks for that. I'm spending most of my time right now just trying out all the modes of transport; ) The bikes are cool, and they really go; ) I also noticed that police cars turn on a penny. It didn't occur to me to try any of the boat until I got stuck somewhere and had to ditch my car in the water. Oh yeah, and I noticed how you can catch up with the best sports car yet trying to catch up with a person running down the road is almost impossible. Are they all professional athletes in this city, lol!

    They forgot the iPhone versions ability to use all of your iPod tracks for the game. I don't know whether you can do that on the PSP or not but since you'd obviously have a lot more songs on your iDevice than on your PSP, it definitely gives the iPhone an edge in that regard.

Also as someone else mentioned the lack of transparency when going under a bridge.. both need to be added in an update. PERIOD. Also I am not sure why driving or moving using the accelerometer wasnt added, seems like a glaring lack of use in the iPhone.

    I really do not care which one is better. I have a DS and PSPgo, not an iPod Touch/iPhone. However I could really care less which version is better, because as a gamer I want all consoles and want the best that each console has to offer.

    Can i make a recommendation? I think youve got something decent here. But imagine if you added in a few links to a website that backs up just what youre declaring? Or maybe you might give us a little something to look at, something that would connect what you are declaring to something real? Just a idea.

    Actually, I own an Iphone 3G, DS (classic, not lite or I), and a psp... I recently bought it on my phone, seeing as it was cheaper to try. Seeing as I am upgrading from 1st gen DS to DSi on friday, I saved some extra cash to buy a copy of GTA: CTW for my ds as well. I absolutely loved my iphone version, played it for most of my day. The only problem is Battery Life. Will comment later on the DS version. :)
