PSP
Android/iOS
DS

I think psp is the best in terms of gameplay since the controls are easier than other 2.
But in terms of graphics mobile version is the best.
Thoughts?

PSP - best graphics, more missions.
second is mobile for best resolution and ability to use touch screen alongside the gamepad.

DS is worst, low res, bad graphics, ass touch screen, bad sound quality.

DS - because the game was actually written with this hardware in mind, thus it utilizes its potential in the best way using features exclusive to DS (whistling for a cab, blow residues from the scratch cards or touch controls. Graphics are nicely stylized for comic book and the game was not only one of the freshiest GTA games since the beginning of the series, but also one of the best DS titles. The only downside may be limited soundtrack - just a couple midi format songs, but it created nice ambient and wasn't that much of a problem to me.

 

Second one is definitely mobile edition, which combined the positives of PSP version (graphics, extended soundtrack, additional missions) with touch controls of DS. It lost some touches, but it's probably the best version if you don't have DS.

 

The worst one is PSP version as it's reallu unnecessary port, serving only as a good base for mobile version. Sure PSP had better graphics, extended soundtrack and two addtional missions, but it lost everything that made CTW original and fresh. And we all know that PSP was able to run much bigger games like LCS and VCS and it could probably run San Andreas Stories as well if it wasn't for UMD size. If CTW was made for Vita and used its touch screen that it may be worth something, but right now it's the worst version made only for additional income, which wasn't really that big in the end to make a difference.

I'm gonna have to go with the mobile version. It puts the touch controls to good use, and the graphics look squeaky clean.

 

The second best is probably the PSP port, although as much as I love it, the controls can feel...awkward at times.

The thing about additional missions and graphics are not true. Mobile version lacks all the shadows and yellowish tint of PSP version, same goes for the extra missions for the blonde reporter chick

Oh well, I thought mobile version got these additional missions as well. My point about DS version being the best still stands, though.

And these additional missions were probably added to PSP by Sony request which ordered developers to add more content for the titles if these were previously released for different platform.
