I have never, ever seen the go-kart track in GTAIV. I thought it was new for Chinatown Wars

Is the map exactly the same? Slightly different?

the biggest difference is that there is no Alderney in Chinatown Wars

The only really significant change from GTA IV's map is the removal of Alderney. Otherwise, it was basically just removing overpasses and such things that would obstruct your view while playing.

And there are a lot less curvy roads. Most of the roads have been straightened out and turns have been sharpened.

Pretty cool. I don't intend to purchase this particular title, but it's nice to see R* doesn't want to re-invent the wheel with LC (again).

JRussell, I think you're missing out then. I honestly do believe that this is one of the best GTA games of all time, and I think it's better than GTA IV. It's more fun, less serious and that was really what attracted me to the series in the first place.

I urge everyone to buy it, because it rocks!

Really? I haven't looked into it but I just might. I don't own a DS. If the game is as good as everyone is saying then I'll check it out. does it expand on the IV universe at all? What is the coolest new feature?

I might be going out on a limb here, but gta 4 has better visuals.
