It definitely looks like more fun. But of course based on fun alone, Tetris is a better game than GTA 4

sometimes I think I'm the only person on this planet who always found Tetris absolutely B-O-R-I-N-G.....oh and Pac Man's worse!

 

 

dude.. i feel the same way >_>

I find tetris boring too, pac-man also

A major gripe I have with this game so far is that it's very linear. There is a notable lack of choice with regard to completing missions and advancing the story. I'm only 16% of the way through so far, but by now, I'd expect to be working for several different crime bosses simultaneously. Instead, jobs offers tend to arrive from one crime boss at a time.

The drug selling aspect is a decent diversion to the main missions at first, but like the economy system in Fable 2, it gets old pretty fast.

Contrary to what many previews have suggested, touchscreen and microphone implementation is quite gimmicky. Unless they're applied to fundamental gameplay aspects, such as the shooting and driving mechanics, then it's a gimmick in my book. This is not to say that the touchscreen aspects detract from the game, far from it. But I find it ironic that games such as Phantom Hourglass are labelled gimmicky, while Chinatown wars seems to have evaded similar criticism thus far.

Overall, this game is definitely as good as any other GTA game, and those who claim otherwise are not likely to have played it anyway. If my evaluation seems negative, it's only because I'm not a great fan of the GTA series in general. In this respect, the game still suffers from the same repetitiveness and shallowness that has tainted previous games in the series.



I certainly like what I have seen of CTwars more than what I've seen of GTA4. So i suppose that's a +1



How's the movement in the game, is it tank based like the old GTA's? And the shooting?

Those games are over rated for their time.

Galaga was clearly superior in my opinion.

 



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)

Very true.



Good to see that a lot of people seem to like this or are interested in it. I'd like for the game to do well and maybe then in the future, they would consider making a GTA for the Wii. That could turn out to be a great game.

Tetris though can't really be fairly compared to most other types of games. I might be having more fun playing Street Fighter 4 right now and soon Resident Evil 5 and plenty of other games in the past. What game though, do I always come back to play for a few hours. Tetris is always there in some form and I still love playing it.



I'll come up with something better eventually...

GTA IV's gameplay was terrible so without watching a single video of Chinatown, I suppose it'd take a miracle for it not to be better.



Chinatown Wars is better than GTA IV, i played it, it rules, i'm buying it on day 1!
