Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was quietly released onto the App Store at midnight on January 18th, 2010. The game features the same missions available for the Nintendo DS and PSP versions. One difference is the lack of Rockstar Games Social Club - the bonus Xin missions, which were previously only available after completing the main story line, locating the two Lions of Fo and syncing the device to Social Club, are now available without the use of Social Club. A new radio station allowed players to use a custom radio track-list from their iTunes. This version features the enhanced graphics of the PSP version released after the DS iteration, but re-introduces the touch screen functionality of the DS, replacing the quicktime events suplemented in the PSP port.
