Despite making it's debut on the child friendly DS, Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars still packs the mature content that made the series infamously controversial, but it is toned down substantially. Role Models/Messages 4/10: This is a GTA game. The whole plot revolves around crime and drug dealing. The protagonist, Huang Lee, is a rich, spoiled snot from China that complains constantly and uses sarcasm on a regular basis. Although he is not the greatest role model nor has good intentions, I gave him a few points because he can play side missions called "Vigilante". This allows you to be a cop that is assigned various tasks such as stopping a getaway car or pulling over a carjacker in an eluded amount of time. Other side missions allow you to be a firefighter and a paramedic. Both of these missions reward you and are actually pretty fun. And although Haung isn't the best person in the world, he has limits, and knows when certain crimes go too far. Violence 5/10: Violence plays a huge part in missions, but it's very stylized and viewed from a top down distance. The character models look extremely pixly and are very small on the screen. Players can use a number of fire arms and explosives to kill enemies with death resulting in a small pool of blood encompassing them. Even though the violence shown is mild, you can kill civilians and cops, although it is not encouraged because the cop AI is extremely intelligent and will nab you. The only other concern about violence is a mini-game you can find called "Rampage". This mini-game gives you a weapon with unlimited ammo and you are tasked to kill as many gang members as you can walking on the streets. This can usually lead to a high body count. Sex 6/10: Although no nudity (not even partial nudity) can be seen, there are still A LOT of sexual references throughout. The game begins with Haung stating he caught crabs off a tourist in Liberty City. Your Uncle, whom you meet at the beginning of the game, runs a porn studio and one of the characters you will meet works there. Sex is also talked openly among characters. One character goes in length describing how his "hot dog" didn't satisfy his wife's "hamburger". You can also find double entendres throughout the city. One included the logo of your character's laptop that is a bowl of fruit shaped as a male's genitalia, mocking the company Apple. You can go dumpster diving in the city and on a few occasions find a used condom or a d-ldo, although your more likely to find a weapon. I could go on writing the sexual references, but this should hopefully give you a taste of what to expect. Language: You won't go a scene without any language in the dialogue. Expect the worst to be used (f***,s**t,c**t,b***h,etc.) There were even words used I didn't know prior from playing. There are also a few racial slurs used. Fortunately most of the language is only seen in text, so it doesn't have as strong of an impact. The only time language is heard in the audio is when pedestrians hurl obscenities at you. They may say "F*** you A**h*** if you run into them, but that's the worst I heard. Drugs 8/10: Drugs are extremely prominent throughout the game. You can buy and sell weed, downers, coke, ecstasy, acid, and heroin. You find dealers hidden in alleyways or in obscure locations and make deals there. The basic mechanic is buy low and sell high, making the trade system a cinch. The game further tones down the difficulty by giving you tips for who's selling cheap or buying high in the city, making drug dealing look easy and profitable. The only consequence I found with the drug dealing is on occasion there are drug busts, but this was fairly rare. The drug dealers will actually talk about the side-effects of some of the drugs once in a while, but this also happened once in a blue-moon. Note that Haung can never use any of his drugs.
