Gamespot didn't really have that much to say of any flaws, apart from the fact some of the DS minigames don't play as well on the PSP (which we expected), and some camera issues.
"At first glance, Chinatown Wars could be mistaken for a return to the Grand Theft Auto series' humble 2D beginnings. The action is viewed from a more or less top-down perspective, and of course you still spend much of your time driving stolen cars and causing trouble with firearms. But the similarities between this superb PSP game and its '90s progenitors pretty much end there. Chinatown Wars actually has more in common with GTAs III and IV than it does with earlier games, and, remarkably, it even adds to and improves on the formula that made those games so successful. That's a bold statement for sure, but Chinatown Wars really is that good... It's also one of the best GTA games yet."
"Use parachutes to take part in Multiplayer BASE Jumping throughout Liberty City. Find the 9 BASE jump marker locations scattered throughout the city in Free Mode and hit Right Button to warp you (and anyone else with you in Multiplayer) to the top of the building. Clean, successful and well-executed BASE skydiving jumps will be tracked by time and other statistics that you'll be able track and compare with Friends at Rockstar Games Social Club."
"Kicking off ten years ago as one of New York's first late-night outdoor parties, Turntables on the Hudson are still going seriously strong thanks to their sophisticated blend of hip-hop, house and funk, peppered with latin sounds, afrobeat and even European gypsy vibes. Check out the audio player below for a snippet from their radio station, exclusive to Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP."
Part three of our music reveals from the exclusive soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP delivers the genre-leaping instrumental rock sounds of Tortoise.
Often referred to as 'post-rock', this Chicago-based outfit was one of the very first bands to fearlessly incorporate hip-hop, techno, dub and drum'n'bass into modern guitar-based rock'n'roll in the late 1980's, earning them worldwide acclaim. Influential to this day, Tortoise's most recent album is the critically acclaimed Beacons of Ancestorship. Check out the audio player below for a snippet from their station in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP.

Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas v1.0.1 is focused on fixing some high priority client and server crashes, resolving compatibility issues and improving cross-platform compatibility (including support for running on Mac OS X) for the dedicated server, while fixing some various major bugs within the client and resources package.
This release is backwards compatible with our previous release (v1.0). This means that you can use the new v1.0.1 client to connect to v1.0 servers, however we still encourage server owners to upgrade to the latest version due to the number of issues that were fixed in this release.
"Armando and Henrique are two of Luis Lopez's oldest friends. They grew up together, went to school together, and got in a lot of trouble together. Henrique isn't too bright, but he's big, tough, dependable and knows how to use a gun. Armando's a little guy who talks a big game, and considers himself the brains of the operation - not difficult given his partner in crime. Armando, in particular, resents Luis for getting out of the neighborhood and above his station, but Henrique and Armando remain fiercely loyal to Luis and always have his back.
Luis can call on his friends whenever he needs weapons and vehicles, or back-up on certain missions. Armand and Henrique are always around to engage in other activities, whether it's visiting the clubs, hitting some bars or heading to the driving range for some golf."
