Just like any other gta with more features [i.e drug dealing] , VERY ENTERTAINING, and funny, A must buy for everyone although fair warning alot of oral swearing,

  Brilliant - and I've barely scratched the surface

I've probably done about 7 of the main missions, all of which have been really good fun, but I have spent hours and hours on what the blurb above calls the 'in-game economy based on a trading system with fluctuating prices'. This 'trading system' is absolutely addictive. I keep trying to go back to the main missions, but everytime I do I receive an email from a 'trader' telling me he has some commodity or other going cheap, or that he desperately needs some of said commodity, so I speed round to his place, 'trade', get out of there, often pursued by the cops, and spend the proceeds on a new safehouse. I think I've only got a couple more safehouses to buy. THEN I can get back to the main missions, maybe,

In this game you play as the character Huang lee who is after the stolen valuable sword that was taken from him.The amount of things that you can do in this game is impressive from making molotovs, to dealing. Also when you get into different vehicles you have to sometimes hotwire them which makes clever use of the ds touch screen. The top screen is for character and gameplay area, whilst the other displays radar and the map for your sat nav. The gameplay has the same feel as the gtaiv even though it is from a birds eye top down perspective. Some reviewers have said the psp version is better but i disagree as this makes clever use of touch screen and the controls are easier to get to grips with on this ds version. On a dsi xl it looks particularly good and is the best most fun detailed crime sim i have played on the ds.

Got this on Christmas Day and havent played another game since! Game play is brilliant and very user friendly and they make the most of the features on the DS! Excellent buy - you wont be trading this one in!

  Probably the best game on DS

Excellent game but definitely not for children, even slightly older ones. The dialogue is superbly written (and very funny) although in a change to other GTA games you read it rather than hear it.

The only other thing to note having played the PSP version also is if you have both machines buy the PSP version - it's better.
