Last week Rockstar Games announced that the PSP version of GTA: Chinatown Wars would be released on October 20th and today we have our first look at the game with a batch of screenshots.
Depending on what you expected from the game you may be a bit disappointed with the visuals. The game certainly look a bit sharper compared to the Nintendo DS version of the game and the art style seems to have dropped the cell-shaded look found in the DS game in favor for the “realistic” one found in the GTA PSP titles. It seems like this change in art style may’ve been for the worse since a few screens of the game look a bit ugly. I’m not that much of a graphics whore but seeing a flat window texture on a building up close makes me shudder a bit.
Not having played the original version of Chinatown Wars I’m not too sure how well the gameplay will translate to the PSP and if it’ll be what PSP owners would want out of a GTA game. But if diifii liked the DS version then I’m sure I’ll dig the game unless it's a shoddy port.
