Features include Multi-Touch based controls, adjusted difficulty levels, top-down gameplay, a new radio station that allows players to create custom playlists for in-game listening, and more. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is available now and sells for $10.

Can anyone confirm if this is the full game, or a cut down version for iPhone?

Don’t want to spend the money and discover its only a limited game, if its the full game the value seems ok though.

Judging from the review posted on iLounge, it would appear to be the full and complete game.

Mad now.  Big fan of the GTA series, but this one is NOT compatable with 1st Gen Ipod Touch.  Hope this is not a sign of things to come.

... actually, Google is your friend.  There is a way around it.  Good game, playing now.

Is this only available in the US?

Rob… how did you work around the 1st gen microphone issue? Google obviously hates me…
