    "Worried that GTA: Chinatown Wars was going to be a watered-down GTA experience? As in, toned down for the kids? No need to worry about that, as it's been revealed that not only do Rockstar have Nintendo's blessing to pitch the game at adults ("They didn’t want us to make a GTA for kids, and we weren’t interested in making a game we wouldn’t normally make), but that the game will let the player buy and sell prohibited narcotics. In a drug-dealing minigame. There's six drugs on offer, all of them real drugs, so if you're one of those strange, insecure types who like to get super-defensive in advance of sensationalist tabloid headlines, now's the time to start ensuring your hackles are raised.

    And The GTA Chinatown Wars Outrage Begins

    "It was only a matter of time before Rockstar's Nintendo DS offering Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars fell under the scrutiny of international anti-everything groups, and what better place to start than with the "ever reputable" UK news stable, The Sun, where the news of GTA DS's drug selling mini-game isn't going over so well.


    Darren Gold of charity Drugsline said: “Anything using drug-dealing as entertainment is sending out the wrong message. “Glamorisation doesn’t help our work trying to educate kids of the dangers of substance misuse.”

    See? Now that's two things parents should be doing but don't in one statement - educating their children about drugs and keeping them from playing mature video games. I do like the little addition that The Sun reporter slipped in at the end though. "Experts predict the final edition is unlikely to feature explicit criminality. " "Experts" have apparently never played a Grand Theft Auto title.

    I gotta say, so far this game is meeting my expectations. Maybe even more than I expected. It looks like itll be fun and not toned down for kids in any way. Cant wait to pick it up when it comes out. The only game I'm actually gunna buy since 2 years (besides line rider 2) otherwise. I dont find DS games appealing enough to spend the 30 bucks on.

    Mortal Kombat also.

    Nice to see stuff in this game that even goes beyond the console and PC series. I just hope they don't come down on the game like they tried to for Manhunt 2.

    if there was
    there would be this warning:

    "DISCLAIMER: Playing GTA may cause intense horniness and sexual stimulation. If DS gets wet and shortcircuits, it is not Rockstar's fault. Thank you."

    Oh this is nowhere near as bad as being "rewarded points for causing mass destruction and killing people."

    I just wish that when you bought the weed, it would come out of the GBA port. Been pretty dry around here.....or the quality has been really poor.

    This looks like it will be a decent game possibly. That's the first I saw of any screenies.
