'''Radio in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|''Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars'']]''' varies depending on the platform: there are 5 radios that are available in all versions, but the [[PSP]], [[Apple iOS|iOS]] and [[Android OS|Android]] versions have added 6 more radios, and on top of that the iOS and Android versions have an additional [[custom radio station]].
 
   
The radio soundtrack is substantially stripped down from that found in previous games, due to the size limitations of the [[Nintendo DS]] cartridge. None of the radios feature any voice tracks, being purely instrumental. All the stations are named after real music labels and artists of bands, most of whom contributed, albeit with instrumental rather than vocal songs.

Revision as of 04:20, 30 April 2020


Radio in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars varies depending on the platform, and is substantially stripped down from that found in previous games, due to the size limitations of the Nintendo DS cartridge. None of the radios feature any voice tracks, being purely instrumental. All the stations are named after real music labels and artists of bands, most of whom contributed, albeit with instrumental rather than vocal songs.

Radio stations in vehicles can be changed through buttons on the touch screen. All stations are assigned a rating from zero to five stars, depending on the amount of time the player spends listening to them. These can be views by accessing the radio player in the PDA.

Interestingly, the radio stations from Grand Theft Auto IV are advertised on billboards throughout the city, yet none are accessible to the player.


There are 5 stations that are available in all versions of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. The PSP version adds 6 more stations, and the iOS and Android versions (with update to 1.1.0) adds the PSP stations along with a custom station modified by the player. Please select a station to jump to its section.
