Another thing (that's not exactly the fault of the game) is that you have to own the $500+ iPad to play it. Granted, it's no big deal if you already own one -- that's why you're reading this, right? -- but if you don't, this is not a killer-app type of game. That's the main point: No matter which version is "best," Chinatown Wars is still a fun game on whatever you're playing it on; a game that scratches the itch for GTA's particular blend of action, done up in a nifty hybrid of the old 2D editions and the well-familiar 3D sequels.
There isn't much to say about GTA: Chinatown Wars that hasn't already been said. The upgrades in the HD version of this great game include lighting affects, an updated control scheme, improved graphics, and the same amazing game that Rockstar games released for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
