GTA is awesome. It's the top-down perspective GTA of old, in 3-D. Chances are if you like GTA you'll like CW.

Just purchased Ass Creed 2. Graphics are slick on 3GS. I was really impressed when I booted it up and saw how great Enzio looked and moved. Animation is awesome.The game is quick, too. Might be too quick, according to IGN. We'll see about that, though.

Can DEFINITELY recommend GTA. For now I can only recommend Ass Creed 2 if you are a graphics whore who could give a good hot damn about gameplay.

Ciao!

Lol, I screwed up once and nothing happened, maybe I'm lucky?

Anyways, I'd sugguest getting GTA: Chinatown Wars, it's definitely an awesome game well worth over $10 as it sold for $30 on the DS and $40 on the psp.

GTA. Assasins is good, but way overpriced imo. GTA is a steal at 10 buck though

My favorite game is doodle army, so check out the awesome game's twitter

GTA CW hands down... if you have been reading, I think that's what everyone are saying generally. Everyone should not miss it.

It says in your signature you're waiting for GTA. So a sudden change of mind or something? O_o
Anyways I'd say GTA is better. Even though I've always disliked the GTA series, CW seems to have a main character who is actually likeable to a certain extent, and much less unnecessary expletives. Only thing I don't like about it is its gross portrayal of underground Chinese, which most Americans seem to have a thing for unsurprisingly. AC2 just looks very boring to me, as I thought the series was supposed to be an open-world stealth game. A side-scroller with a poorly designed interface doesn't really click.

GTA: CW

While I agree that Assassins Creed II is very fun, fast-paced, and looks very nice, making it a 2-d sidescroller somehow lessens the experience for me. GTA on the other hand is the full DS port, and has enough content to last you for a while, since it is open-world. The storyline is great, the graphics are clean, and the game itself is fun and varied. I'd go for GTA on this one.

Beta Testing/ed: Undercroft, Baseball Superstars 2010, Battle for Wesnoth, Fuzion, Twilight Golf, Indestructible Tank, Nanomechs Online Multi, Plushed, Ground Effect, Castlecraft, Inotia 2, Boom it Up, Guerrilla Bob, Caligo Chaser, Vanquish, IMO, Crunchy Orbs, Zenonia 2, Luna Story, Aralon, Shadow Era, Hybrid 2

Really? I find myself liking AC2 quite a bit, although I do find there to be some problems with lag (on a jailbroken device and using WinterBoard) and the whole going way too fast thing is a bit annoying, but overall an awesome game.

Havn't played GTA yet, but from what I've seen/heard it's probably better.
