'Grand Theft Auto' Comes To iPhone

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

In an effort to make "Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars" the most widely-ported "GTA" game since "Grand Theft Auto 2," Rockstar has released the title on iPhone (following up the 2009 releases of the Nintendo DS and PSP versions). The iPhone version of "Chinatown Wars" is selling for $9.99 and is currently the best-selling App in the store.

I haven't had a chance to try the game on iPhone, but early reviews (including a 5-star average in the App Store) seem extremely positive. Having spent time with the PSP and DS versions, "Chinatown Wars" is easily the best handheld "GTA" game ever made, and it sounds like it doesn't lose much in the translation to iPhone. Check back soon for hands-on impressions.
