GTA: Chinatown Wars Comments & Reviews 2022

- Great game, my personal favorite GTA

I love GTA Chinatown Wars, and it's nice to see that it's been kept up to date. I've played through this game a couple of times—on my PSP, and the on my iPod touch. Now I'm playing on my new iPad, but something kind of bugs me. The PSP version had noticeably better graphics than the iOS version at the time. While that isn't quite the case now (as the iOS version can run at much higher, crisper resolutions), the PSP version still has better lighting effects. Night had a great atmosphere in the PSP version, especially during police chases. In this version, night just feels flat. The lack of the lighting effects that are in the PSP version doesn't make much sense to me considering how much more powerful iOS devices are compared to it, but oh well. Would be great if those were added in.

- I love this game

Pros 1. Brings me back to my childhood playing GTA 1 and 2. 2. Much better graphics than the DS version. 3. No wifi or data required to play. I can literally play this game anywhere. Cons 1. Buttons are a bit small and close together. Instead of braking/reversing, sometimes I’ll shoot or jump out of the vehicle. 2. The wanted level stars are very tiny. 3. The Independence (custom) radio station keeps playing the same song from the beginning every time I exit and enter the vehicle. 4. I can’t find a way to message Rockstar Games to report bugs. Bug 1. When talking to a drug dealer there is a star if there is a special deal and a red down arrow if the price is bad or good. There is no green up arrow so you have to check every drug individually to see if there will be a profit.

- Great story!! ( especially at the end ) and very unique GTA

GTA Chinatown Wars is one of my favorite games the story is really good it’s different from other GTA’s it’s fun trading drugs and driving is difficult at first but when you get the hang of it you’ll enjoy all the other unique things that other GTA’s don’t have. In my opinion it’s much more playable then other GTA’s for iPhone such as San Andreas it’s to annoying to shoot and walk or do anything but Chinatown wars is very playable and fun it was definitely worth it

- An amazing game, made by an amazing company

A little while back the game broke. It wouldn’t run, load, or do anything really. I wrote a review about it, explaining the problem and how the game was good. Skip ahead a little bit and I get a response, Rockstar fixed their game. This put a genuine smile on my face. It’s a rare sight to see a triple A company care about the fans so much. This game gets five stars for the game, and the amazing company behind it. It is well worth the price!

- Needs cloud saves and button mapping

Great game all around, but my this game really needs a cloud save feature as well as custom button mapping for controllers now that Xbox and Dualshock 4 support is coming in iOS 13. This would greatly improve gameplay for me personally. I want to use the triggers to drive and shoot. Also the ability to control steering sensitivity is a must. Its too sensitive at the moment on controller.

- This game need full screen

I live this game so much even the full Retina display was amazing and it makes the games graphics look like a console game and it just need full screen support and if you can high up the sound and make it surround sound with the iPhone X and up speakers and add GTA Vice city stories to mobile please rockstar and keep up the great work just show the same attention you do to console to mobile

- Good but one small problem

When I’m in a fire truck, ambulance or cop car and I turn on my sirens cars don’t move out of the way. So it’s hard to make it through traffic without crashing because your going really fast. If you are looking for a good GTA game this is a unique game. It’s 3D in a 2D view? You get what I’m saying?? Overall very good game but can you upgrade how the building and other things look. They look really blurry

- Change

I am very happy to announce that rockstar has done right by us and updated thier game no longer will we have to suffer through long load times during drug dealing missions cutscenes ect and a great game has been saved from the depths for everyone to enjoy. As a fan who has played almost every installment of the gta series i am glad that rockstar does not forget about thier older games.

- Was working at one point....

Just switched back to the iPhone 8 from a Galaxy 8+, game worked when I signed into my iTunes and it pulled all the stuff I had on my iPhone 4S , however after the iOS updated the game is completely dead. Every time I tap to open it just closes it. I managed to load it the other day but when I got in all the previous game saves that was from when I first downloaded it to this phone ended up being corrupted so all my progress is lost. Please fix this and please restore my game saves, I was almost done with this game cause I spent a lot of time on it.

- Great game ,but...

The game is great, exactly like what it was on NDS platform. And the programming is also great, very limited bugs and perfectly suits multi-task system. However, the game controlling can be terrible at times, the pedal button fails sometimes and it could drive me crazy! And the aiming system could be huge problem as well due to the natural drawbacks of using screen rather than game controllers or actual buttons. A fantastic game anyway

- Used to be a good game

This was my first gta game, and i loved it. I recently got it again to to relive memories, but i noticed something that ruined the game. The driving was horrible, the steering is just too slow too react. Also, im pretty sure a long time ago you could customize the button size and positions, but now you cant. This makes the buttons (and analog) too small to navigate your character. I do wish the drug dealing was added to other gta games, like going up to dealers and buying and selling stuff. This game was pretty good, but the movement controls just makes it way too hard to play.

- Great game overall

I think this game is really cool and fun and has quite of bit of content for an iOS game. I played this on my psp and on iOS and they're great. No complains really. A few things to take into consideration to make this game a lot more fun and entertaining: It would be cool to customize your character's shirt and pants color. Although we don't see much of him, like I said, that'd be cool. One last thing is that on the psp, this game is multiplayer (I think, last time I checked). If rockstar can make the game multiplayer on iOS, this GTA Chinatown wars would be 20x better! At least 2 players, but make it multiplayer! Great game overall, add these features and you'll get 5 stars for sure!

- Update blows

Although the story mode is great as always, a few aspects of the original game have been altered with the the most recent updates this year. Hijacking cars has become very difficult due to the game has a hard time picking up finger motions. Next several unique cars you were able to buy or find have disappeared, now those cars bear their name as before, but all are almost identical which is lame. There is also no in game option to cancel a mission while it has started. I really hate this update. Not like how I remember it a few years ago.

- Fix your game

Continuously crashes on my iPad Pro, I have the entire rockstar app bundle don’t waste your money with this one GTA 3 if you have a old device sanandreas if you have something new, whatever the price is for this now it’s too much as it doesn’t work, if the auto save did anything it might not be so bad. Hey do you like exploring? Well tough if you go more then 4 minutes without saving you’re gonna lose all your progress. Hey rockstar you should sell it back to whoever owned midway games at least body harvest didn’t crash

- Social Club Update

This game need to have a cloud save file. If you delete the game or transfer onto a new device, and social club needed to be added in the game too. So people can unlocked the bulletproof patriot and the heist mission from Xin Shan, before the end of the game. And couple more things that I want this game to have, is multiplayer, golden lion statues and mr wong mini game.

- 5 star game. 4 star programming

Love this game. However there is one particular error I am having a big problem with. The game crashes unexpectedly when being played on iPad Pro with mfi controller iOS 9.3.2 Also using the independent playlist at the time if that helps too. Either way get this fixed, and it's a five-star rating

- Seems like a fun game but . . .

When i start it up i wait at least two minutes (i actually timed it) for the game to start. Then, it is in my save room and if I tap on the door the game goes black for another minute to 90 seconds. So, its two to four minutes for the game to start up. Then, everytime theres a cut scene, its another minute of black screen. I’m running it on a 2017 iPad pro 32. If i ask it to provide gps its at least 90 seconds of black screen before it starts running again. Seriously boring! A time waster. Don’t buy it.

- Issue.

Don’t know if anyone else is having a problem with the game having fps drop or the game itself just being laggy overall on the iPhone 13 pro max & or older devices. Just wondering if any of the Rockstar games in the app-store are gonna be fixed or not. Cause dayum these games are fun without having to use wifi and its convenient since it’s on the go.

- The cops are dumb

It’s a good game except the cops are straight up stupid. The cops are blind and we’ll drive on the sidewalk even when you driving on the street. Though I guess it evens out because there is like a billion cops in one street. It would be better if it the cops were smarter and more realistic

- Sadly Doesn’t Work

I bought this game because to this day it’s still one of my favorite GTAs. However it would seem my iPhone 8 is just too updated for it to run properly... If we could possible get an update that allows it to run I would be eternally grateful.

- I love this game but...

I always loved the grand theft auto series and this one is probably the best for mobile, but I get very irritated, because about 80% of the time when ever I get a ammunation truck just every time, there is an smg in it, to many smg's please fix it because it's very annoying.

- No audio

I just bought this game because I remember it being awesome, but I’ve just played 20 minutes of the game without audio. I tried doing everything I could think of to fix the problem and nothing worked. I don’t know why this happened, it would be a great if it had audio.

- Loading Screen

The only reason why I give this game 4 Stars is because after the IOS 12 update loading screens/ cutscenes takes longer to transition to gameplay... it makes me not wanna play the game like that anymore. But you guys can, please fix this!!!

- 2018 GTA CTW Problem!

Not sure if I’m the only one that’s experiencing this problem but. Whenever I open the App. It doesn’t load. It’s stuck on the information thingy. Please fix rockstar. I don’t want to Redownload the app and start over my levels.

- Better than ds version

When I was younger I played this game so much then I saw it on iOS and it is AMAZING. First of all, the custom radio feature is so good and also the graphics are way better

- Love it...

I love this game, I am trying to complete the whole story but I can’t because there is a bug where if drive on the road right next to the park your game crashes and that keeps on happening to me👎🏻.

- Sell,sell,sell!!!!!!!!

I play this game everyday and only completed 10 missions and I have 90g's. All i do is bust knocks you can come up really fast and buy alot of property. The missions are good too though dont get me wrong its GTA !!!!! Buy this game its worth money trust me!!!

- Great memories

Th a was the first ever gta I had ever played and while sme inputs are a little off, I don't mind as I only play the iOS versi n of it. I used to play this on my iPad gen 1 then gen 2 and finally a gen 6, I used that gen 2 a lot. Thank you rockstar for a great game

- Please Help!!

I love this game but when I get to the Molotov mission I can’t equip the Molotov the icon is there but I press and it doesn’t equip I can’t keep playing after that mission I play on a iPhone11 pro max please help

- Very realistic

I love just how immersive this game is the gameplay is rich and the graphics are pretty good despite being a top–down game the graphics are really good and I definitely recommend this game to you.

- Fantastic game, could use some updates

This game is one of my favorites, played it on PSP and iPod touch/iPad back in the day. Repurchased it and am really enjoying replaying it. Just wish sabes were synced across devices because I can play it on my ipad, iPhone and Mac, but each has a separate progress.

- The best mobile grand theft auto experience

Excellent GTA experience for on the go play. Fun touch screen mini games, easy controls, and a fantastic variety of missions .

- Don’t waste your money. They ruined the game.

This used to be my favorite game to play. The controls were fantastic and the gameplay was great. Now when I bought it again, I was extremely disappointed with how the controls somehow got worse. Trust me, if you played this game before and are looking to get back into it I can guarantee that you will be disappointed. Do not waste your money like I did.

- Needs an update

I love gta Chinatown wars but when trying to play it on my iPhone X it processes very slow and sometimes don’t even boot up would appreciate an update for this game 👌

- Great game but frame issues NEED to be addressed

I love Chinatown Wars, but the frames are definitely taking away from the experience. Modern iPhones should be able to play this at 60+ fps. I wish you guys would fix this issue. Otherwise, I recommend.

- PLEASE update for iPhone XS!

Best portable game of all time, hands down. I stand by that, and I’ve spend hundreds on rockstar products... please update this so I can play full screen on the latest iPhone! You guys rock!

- Crap !!!!!

This game used to be my favorite. Since I updated my iPhone to ios12 it no longer works. Rarely opens and when it does it force closes within a minute or two of gameplay. Thanks devs for never updating anything and stealing money. You should maybe support your customers and fans. U know the people who support you. I won’t be buying any more GTA games if this one cant get fixed.

- I love it but one idea

Ok this game is great the story everything especially when Zhou kills Uri but anyway there should be and online mode to this that would be very cool

- Do not buy if you have a newer I phone

I have an iPhone 8 and this game doesn’t work at all it stays in the loading screen but thankfully I have an old I phone 5 that I downloaded this game on and it works fine so I don’t recommend buying this game if you have a newer I phone hopefully they fix this so I can play on an iPhone 8 Plus and not on small buttons like the iPhone 5

- Newer phones, smaller screen.

Love it, just wish they would update it to fill larger screens. On the iPhone X it’s practically picture in picture sized. Which would be cool I guess if I could watch something on the screen behind the game at the same time.

- mostly good

drug dealings sorta broken. no one ever wants to buy weed, acid, pills, or heroin. They only want ex and coke, so i end up stock piling drugs. Also, no one ever has deals on drugs and when they do its only the ones that no one buys, so i dont sell much coke or ex.

- A great game but some glitches

I finished The Whole game, and got the massage from Sean that I can now do the lions of fo but when I try to find them their still the blue spots going around in a circle.

- I know it's a great game cuz it's GTA

But I haven't actually played it because it takes a long time to download for some reason, but it'll be worth the wait hopefully

- Rockstar⭐️

GTA Chinatown wars was great & all I can say is that one day they port the original grand theft auto 1 & 2 to iOS which would be awesome. Always will be a fan of the original gta

- Glitch

So I’ve played this game 10 years ago when it came out but now I’ve bought it for my iPhone 11 and some times it just exits the app unexpectedly But if rockstar sees this please fix this glitch. Thank you. Juan Huerta

- Game crash

On one mission when I get to the special points it crashes

- Driving is horrible

I'm not sure what has happened but driving is HORRIBLE. Half of the time it doesn't even recognize my finger trying to turn left so I'm constantly slamming into everything imaginable which means I'm also getting busted constantly and failing missions. This needs fixed BAD.

- Not working on iOS 12

Gets stuck at initial text screen upon loading. Have to restart several times for a chance that it may get past that screen. When it does, the game is extremely slow between menus. Sometimes upward of 1 minute loading any time you leave the world.

- Good but could be better

If you were able to change the button sizes it would be so much better because I can’t get used to either of the steering controls

- How to fix freezing

Go to the home screen for 10 seconds or 5 seconds and go back to the game

- Gta Review or Gangsta Comparison

Firstly, this game isn't for everyone. This game is violent and has high high drug references. BUT that's what makes GTA awesome. First; these are probably the crispest graphics available in the app store, it will be hard to find something as good looking. Second; this is a direct port from the nintendo DS version and saying that this game is great value. Third; Gangsta and GTA: Chinatown wars are on the same kind of free roaming kill spree genre, but this doesnt mean they're the same game. The camera angles are completely different, gangsta having the 3rd person over the shoulder, and gta having a pretty slick birdseye view. I personally found the controls more clunky in gangsta, but I haven't played many iPhone games with perfect controls. Even gta is a bit clunky due to the control scheme, but it's slot easier to overlook. Overall this game is value for money, but if you have a bit more spring for th DS version, or better yet, the PSP because ultimately that's what this game was made for. But if you want your iPhone free roaming kill spree, drop your money into this game, because it is just overall more thought out and precise. Blues out.


the cars break way to easily and you can’t see where you go and another thing is the guns have horrible accuracy AND ANOTHER THING when you get arrested during a mission and you restart it you still lose your weapons and that doesn’t happen in the other gta games. UPDATE IT


This game is SOOo Good because its different to the other gta games on ios plus the graphics are really good. The drug dealing aspect can't be found in any other Gta game which is what also makes it really special

- Best phone GTA

The best phone GTA there is! It is more suitable for the mobile experience. The other drain battery life and are hard to control with the touchscreen, this game was also a game on the DS and PSP to begin with. Good job rockstar!!! 😀

- Lag upload speed

Recently updated my ios and for some reason when I open GTA CTW its taking at least 5-8 minutes long to upload. When it eventually does and I exit the safe house it takes just as long to upload the world and when I open a mission it freezes. Please fix this issue. Have BEEN A HUGE FAN OF THIS GAME!!!

- Version 4.4 unplayable on IPad Pro

I am experiencing excruciatingly painful lag when trying to play this game, the initial rockstar boot-screen lasts 5 to 6 minutes before even getting the the Badger menu screen, which takes about another 5 minutes to react with each menu button press. Further to my issues, cutscenes are terribly slow, taking a very long time to load even the next line of text in the cutscene. I haven’t even seen the game world yet. The game is that slow, I can’t even get there... Please fix this great game. The story and gameplay both are ledgendary... but this lag is horrible for a paid product.

- The bulletproof patriot

We need the assess to buy the bulletproof patriot, it’s so bad we spent full amount of money but can not experience full contexts!

- Awesomeness

Amazing game. Keep up the good work Rockstar. Hope to see Vice City Stories on iOS one day soon.

- Update please

Needs an update .. I’d play it more if it didn’t take so long to load and lag .

- Terrible

Terrible, will not get past the loading screen unless I exit the app the freezes after the PDA display. Don’t waste your money

- Sick game love it

Should have push bikes

- Fun ios potential

Broken game. Se 2020. Game will bug you out crash. Same with liberty city. Stick with console version not these broken ports

- Game wont load!!!

The game started up once and was so laggy and now just freezes as soon as i open it!! Please fix for ipad!!

- Doesn’t load

Just stayed on the title screen on my iPad 6 gen hot happy I have try to uninstall and reinstall and still nothing

- Can’t play

I was in the water and couldn’t figure out how to make him move. I demand a refund.

- Unable to load

This game has not been updated and fails to load on my iPad Pro. Please update this game or take it off the AppStore Rockstar!

- Epic

Huang Lee is literally the best person in the universe best game ever

- Would like a refund

Absolutely awful, shame.

- It doesn’t work on my iPad Pro

It doesn’t work on my iPad Pro I tried 3 times.

- Doesn’t load

Stays on title screen


It’s no working now. Never finishing the loading

- .....

Nice game. It has become my sons favourate game :) My suggestions are to be able to view the game from my charectors position instead of viewing the game from above. Why not change the view when you get into a vehicle, so you are viewing the game from inside, or behind the car/motor bike (like real racing). Some buttons might change when I am inside the car, but this way I could steer the car by tilting the phone sideways. Then when you get in a helicopter, or aeroplane the interface changes again, and I get a different choice of buttons to use. Then when I am in a boat I get to view the game from inside or just behind the boat. Aerial view could be an option in settings. I would also like to be able to enter more buildings in the city. The game might use more of my phones memory if you do these changes, but I would rather have one good game in my phone, then 20 not so very good games. I can understand that when the game was made on a CD that you have a limit to how good the game will be, because you can only fit so little on a CD, but on my iPhone I can have one great game like San Andreas thats like 5 Giga bytes in size. There really is not limit anymore to how much detail you can put into a game. On my phone I have 32 Gb, and I would have no problem allocating 5 Gb to one game if you could make the views change, and offer more buildings to enter on the map.

- It certainly is worth the money

I have owned this game on the DS ever since the first day it came out, i now have this app and was very very surprised at the improoved graphics, they are awsome!!! Personally i like the car controls for steering because as with some ipods and my own the calibration is off center so it wuda been crappy for me, i dislike the accelerate and brake buttons where they are positioned although just leave them how they are now, its something people are just going to grow up with and it should be fine. If u had to get recommended from me on the number 1 ipod game app i would most definately say grand theft auto china town wars!! Get it now, dont steal apps ;)


Awesome game truely the best in the app store by far but recently multiple problems formed within it.... I didn't finish the game!! I haven't finished it due to the fact that when I got to the first Mission with Lester it decides to freeze and stops responding... (That's at about 41% progress) I therefore can't continue on with the game progress :( and thefore this stops me from finishing the game.. The game recently also began crashing a lot and that began before the recent update witht the radio channels update PlS HELP ME, pls fix it!

- Less then 5 stars

I really don't understand how this game could get anything less then 5 stars. Everything about this game just reals awesomness. People complaining about the price, it's $13!! On the DS it's at least $50. Considering this is exactly the same game (except for the controls of course) it really is hard to go by. And as for the space issue, it's only 200mb, that's nothing compared to a 8gb iPod/iPhone. And really, if you did buy a 8gb, I'm assuming you'd know you would have to delete stuff. I've had this game since it's come out and I'm still playing it, this is the must own app. Don't listen to any review less then 5 stars please :)

- Rockstar Wins Again!

GTA is finally on iPhone and WOW! This game is amazing, the controls take a little time to get comfortable with but once you're used to it, the time melts away. I have ran my iPhone battery dead countless times playing this. My only extremely mild gripe is with the left and right steering buttons, sometimes a little tap while driving will have you plowing into a building which can be frustrating while racing or trying to evade police. The option of a steering wheel type control as seen is games like Parking Mania and iPark It! would be a nice addition for more precise steering. A very minor gripe in what is another massive, impressive GTA title.

- "This Game is a must have."

I have to congratulate Rockstar for this game as it combines the PS3 and X-Box Games Like GTA 4 with some of the old games like san Andreas and then combined all of this on the iPhone. This game throws you into the world of Huang-Le's as he has to deliver a sword to your uncle for the family. But right at the start of the game you take a shot to the head, and left to drown in a sinking car. You work with characters like Uncle Kenny, and many more to get back this sword. If you have played any other GTA Game you whould know the deal is. Some of the cool stuff about this game is that is the control system for the iPhone is really outstanding and the missions are realy funny like in some of the old GTA games like San Andreas. The Game is top-dow and full 3-D. The cut scence are cartoon, and liberety city really fell like a living city. This is great when your either fighting of a gang in a mission or driving about Liberety City. This is one of the best games you could ever buy if you are a GTA or sandbox fan. This Game is a must have.

- BEST APP ON MY IPOD!!! ... and i love this update too :D

6 NEW RADIO STATIONS! WOO soo much cool soundtracks u guys put in GTA. ive been playing this game non-stop, when ever i touch my ipod first thing comes in mind is GTA! the sounds the graphics (well its awesome but could be better with the 3-D Interface just like GTA Vice city or others etc. on gaming consoles because the graphics are full on otherwise these graphics are stull perfect! i love the minigames like rampage or racing and unlocking the cars are awesome. I think there was one glitch where i chainsawed a guy in half and the abulance dude healed him! thats a glitch orite... ANYWAYS 5 STARS! THIS IS THE GREATEST GAME EVER MADE, to my opinion... ;D

- Come on

I played the game on my cousins iPad and I absolutely loved it. But when I bought it for iPhone 4 it stayed on the screen with the writing about the trademarks. This is very disappointing because I paid money for this game. This is also misleading because nowhere on the app description (in the details section ) does it say that iPhone 4 is not supported. I says iOS 5.3 or later and it says supported on iPad, iPhone and iPod. It's optimised for iPhone 5. So there is no warning that you are about to throw away your money. I hope u find a way to bring the game on iPhone 4 again.

- Amazing game! Endless fun

This game is amazing as you would have read, worth the money, get it you will have hours of endless gameplay. All the other reviews would confirm this if you read on... ATT Rockstar App Developers- Minor issues I have encountered are as follows: -When I answer a call that comes in during mid gameplay, when I am finished with the call, I have to restart up the game & cannot go back to exactly where I was (eg halfway through a mission) and have to start from lat save point. FRUSTRATING! -This is the case with getting an SMS also. -Sometimes when a text message is displayed at the top bit of the screen only, you cannot access the buttons to continue/exit the current screen in game as the text message bar covers it. Other than these small frustrating issues, the game is my favourite on the iphone, I have a buttload of games also. DEVELOPERS please update & fix these bugs!

- Brilliant!

Probably one of the only true AAA list titles on the iPhone, GTA:CTW proves that the iPhone/iPod Touch can be great platforms for gaming. The campaign is long and there's tons of stuff to do. Well worth the meagre asking price, considering the DS and PSP versions retail for at least twice as much. If only they'd now port Vice City or similar, I'd be very happy ;) Though not very likely. To all those wishing this was GTA 4, it isn't. I can't understand why people moan about it no being a 3rd person game, It's a port of the PSP version with the added bonus of the DS touch controls.

- Perfect

Compare to other apps on the app store, this game is more expensive then most other games, but then this game is better then most, or even all other games!! maybe the details can increase a bit, but then the huge world compensate for it and the amount of things that happen there. Okay, the targeting system can be made better, but it isn't so bad once you get used to it. Over all, this game does worth AU$13 and I recommend this game to anyone who like games like GTA or other game of this kind!

- Sir edward Knightsbridge IV

Ladies and gentlemen, I sir Edward Knightsbridge IV bring you yet another professionally written and upmost informative review. I like stringbeans. As zouh Ming rises from the ashes of his fallen foes, the city of chang xen lies in ruins... People run amuck in an array of sensless voilence and a haze of drug influenced gang bangers. In other news, I have been also collecting toenails which will one day join me and knights of the round table. In conclusion, does such senseless violence really need to find it's way in to our lives like this? For I, a mere mortal must agree, we are only human and so it shall be.

- Plain fun

Great game, gives the original GTA experience. Mindless, senseless, violent fun. My only real issue with this game is that vehicles tend to be very finnicky to control. This problem is further worsened by the fact that the lanes are VERY narrow, so it makes ducking and weaving out of traffic a very difficult experience which often leads to constantly crashing and slowing down. I've been playing GTA since the first one was released on PC so many years ago. I'm a massive fan, however i just found driving in this game to be a bit of a chore. Everything else is pretty top notch, and the performance is rock solid.

- GTA Chinatown Wars Rocks

I just finished playing GTA CTW for the iPhone today. I never thought I would make it through level 58 (final), and I loved every moment of it. I am looking forward to seeing it on the iPad, as it was a real strain on my eyes (I am long sighted), but I am sure most will not find that a problem. It was brilliant for the iPhone, and from screen shots I have seen of the other platforms, the iPhone version looks the best. Lots of fun, a bit of a challenge to control, but not impossible.

- iPhone's first real console quality game

This game is spectacular (3GS). Very smooth graphics, great radio selection including own playlist, very rich and detailed city bustling with activity. I love the games currently available on the iPhone but this raises the bar. You forget you are playing on a phone and would be excused for thinking that you are playing on an arcade console. tl;dr For the price of a pub meal you are getting a fantastic console game well worth every dollar. Hours and hours of fun and replayability.

- In One Word - Freakin' Sweet

This I the greatets thing to hit the idevices. Been playing it none stop. Excellent graphics and sounds. Custom radio, with your songs. Some things bug me; missing the PSP stations, no ped chatter, & when your driving your car, move the time and the suburb up at the top of the screen. So you don't have to look under your fingers, to see where your are and what time it is. But well done. So much better then the DS version. Best money spen on an app. No regrets.

- Best game ever.

I cant believe all these people who give this a low rating. If you are reading this and was sceptical like I was, do not hesitate and buy it! Even the DS version didnt have voices but was still a good $60, this ooowwns the ds version I cant wait to replay this game tomorrow on my 6 hour car ride (and the 6 hours back two days later) just buy it guys. Thank you rockstar, thank you. Liberal city hasnt been this fun since gta 4, and to all those who complain its not like gangstar... Im glad its not!

- Excellent, but the car controls are terrible

This game is very good, the graphics are better (in comparison to the DS version) but the car controls are terrible, the brake button should be where the attack button is, and you should have an option to steer using the iPhone's motion sensing (Like in NFS: Shift). Problems aside, this is a really good game, if the controls were fixed in an update, this could be the best game in the iPhone App Store. I have only played the first two missions and I'm already impressed.

- Close to perfection

Easily the best game avaliable in the app store, the missions are great, graphics and sounds are some of the best i have seen, and it sure as hell lives up to the reputation of the franchise, in every way. The only problem i have is that it crashes sometimes after a minigame (I have an ipod 3G) it may just be my ipod, but it only happens very rarely so i am not complaining. BUY THIS GAME NOW! It will be the best use of your money you will ever spend on iTunes!

- A bit pricy but worth it.

My first impression if this game was "just a cheap remake of the ds version" I was wrong. It is nearly or just as good as the ds version. The graphics are eceptional for iPod quality and the controls are very easy to get used to. As the title says it is a bit pricy but definately worth it. If you are a gta fan then this is definately a game for you. If you aren't then I would still buy it. One of the best games available on the app store. Only reason it isn't 5 stars is because of the price.

- Very good game...excellent

Good work rockstar, but fix the camera angle, that will bring the game different turn, like we play on consoles, in this game which is for iphone has the top camera angle, we have to play everthing from the top, cant see the person face, driving on roads boards comes in front of car etc. It just look a little bit small... I would say bring the camera angle adjustments and then everything will be excellent...

- Similiar problems anyone?

Has anyone had problems with the ipod function after exiting the GTA? My iPhone 3GS 32gb's volume control for ipod refuses to change after I've had my daily dose of GTA. The volume control for ipod only returns after I've restarted the phone. Please fix this asap as having to restart your phone to listen to ipod is really cumbersome and puts off people. I might just have to remove this app from the phone until this is fixed.

- Boring

I bought this game and thought it was great, after I finished it it became sooo boring because there is nothing to really keep you satisfied when the missions are done Because all you can do is the same stuff, just roam around shoot ect with no realism to it. I deleted the game and thought that the more smaller nifty applications are more fun and enjoyable espicially on an iPhone. I don't think iPhones are made too have full games, Out of all the full games on the iPhone this is good for a while but it wears off. and when you have played grand theft auto on xbox or playstation3 I don't even know why I bothers to purchase this app. I want my $12 back!

- great game

I love this game it has to be the best on the iphone/ipod touch it is better than the ds version of the game. This can last up to hours and hours of play time. It has heaps of missions, guns and vehicles. There is just one thing that this game lacks it is the aiming system, i didnt like. I think they should have anothe aiming stick where the primary attatck button is but stil keep the one they have now but merg it with the pad idea. When they fix that up i will give it 5 stars.

- Not as good as expected!

Bought few ther games on iPhone,GTA seems to have the worse graphic out of all. Considering its popularity, one would have thought rockstar would have put more effort into it. Game play is ok. Controls are a little difficult to get use to. Would have expected the chats to be animated with proper conversation voices... Having to read everything is a little annoying. Hate the birds eye view camera. Love the game, love the story, just a little disappointed with graphics. Hope it can be updated.

- Good Game

Overall it is a good game. The steering controls for cars can be frustrating when you think you are pressing the arrow to turn or speed up. The one major problem I see which is really annoying. When someone calls you on the IPhone and the game closes, you should be able to keep playing a mission if that's what you were doing before you got the call. I had my boss and a wrong number in the space of 30 mins and it was really frustrating to lose the missions I were playing.

- Best iPhone application ever!

Superb! This is just one word to describe this app! Rockstar are renowned for making some of the best games out there, and to port GTA Chinatown Wars onto the iPhone is really an achievment! It has stunning graphics (for the iPhone) and sensational gameplay action! Great ideas that are custom to iPhone too! For such an incredibly low price, this is definitely worth it! I'd even go as far as saying it's set to be the best iPhone app for 2010!

- Needs another update

May have looked good before the 4th Gen models came out but now things like blurry text are simply an eyesore. Graphics are fine in their low-res state but the text is offputting. That and I find the buttons are too small, my finger constantly slips off the accelerator and the left/right buttons are far too twitchy for driving, driving with accuracy is almost impossible However for $5.99 (on special) its still a great game but the controls aren't up to scratch


This game is truly awesome it feels like your playing a level of difficulty compared to the ps3's and the xbox's . This is the type of game that makes you keep playing and doesn't have to have an ending you can do whatever you want or follow the mission. PLEASE APPLE LET ROCKSTAR CREATE ANOTHER ONE FOR IPOD AND IPHONE. Hey I'd rather spend $13 than $50 OR $60 for a ps3 or xbox version, at least i can take it with me. Well done once again on a great game.

- Pretty good

Really good game but wish u could buy and sell drugs like in the Nintendo Ds version

- iPhone X Support?

This would be amazing with iPhone X support.


Do gta iv on mobile plz plz !!

- Sad

Crashes/Abandoned game. Wish they kept updating it but I guess there was no more money to make off it.

- Great

Portability 100%

- Nice game

All these idiots that rate 1 star because of audio just turn your ringer on.

- Not compatible with iPad mini 2

HALP give meh refund because audio doesn’t work!

- Don’t judge a book by its cover

I orignally was going to uninstall thinking this wasn’t good because it was a top down shooter with no voice acting but then I got to the part where you can buy and sell drugs and the game got surprisingly a lot more fun It’s also pretty hard to mess up a top down game.

- Great Game

Great game. Nothing more to say


i used to love playing the demo version about 9-10 years ago, finally bought the entire game and i have absolutely no regrets. 10/10 would recommend

- AH-Mah-Zing!

It’s literally the same game as the DS. I am playing on an iPhone XR. They added the drug dealing feature and it just wraps the game up so nicely! Literally the best $6.99 I’ve spent on a game!

- Really fun

It's a good game but please make an option to enlarge controls. I find it hard to drive because the controls are too small

- Gta

Le jeux fonctionne mieux dans l’iPhone x depuis la mise à jour d’hier


This is not a free app, so at least you should make this game playable on IPHONE 8 !!! Since I enjoyed your game for 10 minutes, I cannot do anything but read your copy right paper. How can you expect players to respect you, when you don’t respect them at all? Since Rockstar Game already fixs the bugs, I will give the my original grade to this game.

- No support for iOS 12

Hello I advise that if you have iOS 12. You may find this game has slow loading speeds. There is a temporary solution. If you leave the safe house and find it is slow at loading the map. Just tap the home button and reopen the app. It will load the map quickly also works if you leave the paint body shop and it is stuck. I hope rockstar games can fix this issue ASAP! Thank you!

- Buggy and Glitchy

Please update to get rid of the bugs.

- C’est super gta china town

Je trouve que c’est un jeu excellent mais pour l’installer c’est long et j’aimerais que ça soit plus rapide s’il vous plaît merci

- Refund

Just bought this game and it doesnt work!? I would like to Be refund please.

- Long wait for game to start

Takes too long to start up or most times it wouldn’t even start.

- Refund

App won’t work on my iPhone 8, I would please like a refund

- Too long...

The game starts up for like 5-10 minutes... please fix it

- Lancement du jeu. Jeu non fonctionnel

J’aurais besoin d’aide le jeu ne veux pas ouvrir sur mon iPad Pro 2017 celui à 10.5po. J’ouvre le jeu et me marque juste une image. Pas aucune interaction rien.

- Jimmmyyyyyyhdhdjsjiaosx

Plesse fix does not work

- Broken

When i bought it about a year ago, it worked perfectly fine. A fantastic game. Prob the best GTA for mobile but since ios 12, this game is seriously broken. It doesnt even start. So wait until an update before buying.

- Fix a bug

I’m playing that mission with the Molotov’s I can’t switch into the Molotov’s I can’t pass the mission and progress

- Best GTA for mobile

I've bought three of the Gtas- this one is the best. I don't say this about most apps but this one is actually worth the $$$

- mr

vat a great game this vas

- Not downloading

Can I get a refund it's not downloading and I went to get wifi and it's still not working

- Good.. BUT!

Why isn't Ammu nation working though

- Unbelievable!

Graphics are amazing-- very unique! I've never seen a mobile game with "cartoon" style graphics that looked so well. The controls are surprisingly easy to learn-- it only took me about 20 minutes to get a very good feeling for them. One of the best features that I noticed nobody mentioned is that the game sips battery life very slowly. I can't give exact numbers, but after playing it for about 30 minutes, my batter went from 100% to 97%. Very impressive, considering Skater Nation (which is hardly fun compared to GTA CW) kills battery life, mainly due to its intense 3D graphics. Overall, most definitely worth $10-- I honestly can't believe it's that cheap. I'd even be willing to cough up $20-$30 for this!

- Outstanding!

I'm blown away by this game! The story is great and the gameplay is amazing. I got very addicted once the trading mechanic was introduced and I have yet to find a flaw with the game!

- MFi controller support not optimized.

Some controls are not convenient. Like when throwing grenades using the L1+Left analog stik+B the player moves which is unnecessary when throwing. Also when choosing weapons. After you choose a weapon and then press B the player automatically shoots bullets which is sometimes annoying.

- B

Bought this game and it doesn’t work I want my money back

- Please put this in


- Incompatible with us old folks

doesn't work on the original ipod touch, I want my money back

- Not Compatible with 1st Gen iPod Touch!

I love the GTA series, but why is this game not compatible with OS 3.1.x on the original generation of the iPod Touch? Why can't an iPod Touch released in early 2008 not be able to play this game???

- Takes me back

Feels just like the GTA 1 which we all use to play on the PC. Has a great art style that is unique, mini games are fun to. It's GTA on the iPhone, so just get it and enjoy the best game for this handheld.

- Endless

It says its 232 mb hear, but on my comp it says its over 600...

- Great amazing

Its a great game i spend a good 9$

- Best game ever

I bought the game for my ds $50 and this one for ten and there exactly the same but this one might be even better so worth it

- Good but needs online

Favourite game on iPhone. Nova is also good. But this kicks gangstar so bad I would pay the extra six bucks any day. This version is better than the ds by far and almost as good as psp. The story is super deep and the ending is shocking. However, u guys need to add an online mode. Gta4 had it and it worked beautifully. And for the money u should add that. It isn't too much to ask for and instead of new radio stations, please please have online in the next update. I would even pay more for it if it had online. It is that good. Don't hold back, forget gangstar( which is pretty good still) and get gta ctw. U will get used to the view. I hated it at first but then realized how much it worked out. What are u waiting for? Buy it!!!!

- Game Review

The game is awesome! It is the same as the ds version.

- Rockstar rules!!!

Greatest game on the iPhone ,good Job to all the rockstar team,I m already addicted to this game,the mini game are really cool

- Amazing!!

Rockstar has done an amazing job!! And at a fraction of the psp's price 10$ is a steal.. Graphics are some of best I've seen and controls feel nice, and responsive... A must buy for all GTA fans.

- Awesome Game!!!

I love this game so much but could you make cars move out of your way when the sirens are on in an emergency vehicle? If you added that then this game would be perfect!!!

- Wow!!!

C'est un des meilleur jeux que j'ai yé full bon il y a juste les graphique qui son merdic. Mais yé quand même bon. Ya pour au moin 15 heure de jeux.

- Breathtaking

Easily the BEST game on the iPhone/iTouch, if you don't buy this, your crazy. Feels just like gta4. Controls are simplisticly great, super graffics, really like the style, and has a cool story. The map is very sumiliar to gta4 so you get a ton of freedom. Also your PDA provides a great menu, with many customization options. I am awestruck at how great this game is, terrific port, keep up the amazing work Rock Star!

- Love this game

Love this game keep coming out with the updates!

- Whaaa

I own payback, gangstar, and driver and out of all of them this one is 10 billion times better then them combine. Should have the same view as gangstar thought... Ether way.. Best app in the app store.. I know slot of people say that to tell people how good it is but it's never really the best app in the app store... But I'm not joking around .. It is litterly the best app in the app store

- Good game but controls aren't easy

Still would recommand

I thought a bit about why certain GTA games get numbered but others get a subtitle, and I think it comes down to which engine it uses. New/heavily modified engine: Number Mostly the same as a previous game: Subtitle Exceptions: Advance, Chinatown Wars

my copy of gta: chinatown wars is a bootleg, which i found out while trying to rip it to my flash cart. it’s really easy for someone to get suckered while browsing ebay - labels that are convincing at a distance and that’s without mentioning the time i tried to buy wario land 4
