Reviews have continued to appear this week, and we are very proud to announce that as the dust settles, critics appear to be united in heralding Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars as the best game ever to hit the Nintendo DS™*.

* Source: Metacritic, as of 3/31/09. Average score: 94/100. 2 points higher than next-highest title.

Some of the most recent reviews:

"On a system currently overpopulated by cake sims and puppy adoption,
GRAND THEFT AUTO: CHINATOWN WARS IS THE EXPERIENCE EVERY HARDCORE HANDHELD GAMER HAS BEEN WAITING FOR... the portable transition holds its own as a stunningly unique entry in the Liberty City canon, all the while harnessing its platform for everything it's worth. Shameless developers trotting out shallow minigame anthologies and SNES era RPGs should stand in embarrassment at just how much potential Rockstar Leeds managed to wring from a console this late in its lifespan. Gentlemen, it's time to beg your girlfriend for that DS back."

Now, we present Oh No's special remix version, made to capture even more of that vintage gritty Wu-Tang type sound.
