When I saw the trailer for Chinatown Wars I had a bad feeling about it being top down view. After playing a game like GTA IV with an amazing physics engine, I thought the transition back to would be very difficult. I was wrong. Although it is from a birds eye perspective it is still 3D. I was amazed at some of the cars rolling as they still obtain a good level of damage. They have also included the small details like flames from exhausts on the sports cars and I think one even had undercar lighting. Having only played 3-4 missions I have had a few side missions which make excellent use of the touch screen and stylus, in one instance having to remove rubbish from a bin to find a gun. It's an amazing game and is a must buy for every DS owner. I'm sure we'll see plenty more sequels as this is going to be a big seller.
