Further Chinatown Wars details

GTA: Chinatown Wars - General News | @ 05:53 AM MDT | By Neil
As we mentioned earlier this week, the latest issue of EDGE is now on sale in the UK. The magazine features a six-page preview of Chinatown Wars which is based on a play session in New York, not at Games Convention in Leipzig as a few had speculated.

The magazine reveals a couple of details about the game. Notably, carjacking will be a much more detailed process this time around with a mini game involving ramming a screwdriver into the ignition socket of the car and rotating using the stylus until the motor is yours.

Dan Houser told the magazine that the isometric viewpoint of the game was not a new idea - they had experimented with it between the launches of GTA2 and GTA III. It's not as simple as you might think though - there is the flexibility included to shoot over shorter items and the camera is intelligent in its rotation.

Another minigame involves raking through one of the city's New York-esque dumpsters in the search of weapons. You have to lift a couple of trash bags out of the way to find the stashed weapon beneath. EDGE says that this will be one of the "simplest" minigames in Chinatown Wars.

I thought all these weren't new? We alrady know there is a carjacking minigame, weapons-searching from the dumpsters. It is all detailed in Nintendo Power. However, the interview with Dan Houser is indeed new.
