Radio in Chinatown Wars is substantially stripped down from that found in previous games, due to the size limitations of the Nintendo DS cartridge. There are five radio stations, yet none of these feature any voice tracks, being purely instrumental. Radio stations in cars can be changed through buttons on the touch screen. Interestingly, the radio stations from Grand Theft Auto IV are advertised on billboards throughout the city, yet none are accessible to the player. All the stations are named after real artists of bands, most of whom contributed, albeit with instrumental rather than vocal songs.

PSP and iPhone/iPad Touch versions

The PSP version retains the music and style from the DS version and included more tracks exclusive for the PSP version. The following radio stations are exclusive to the PSP version.

Anvil A station only playing songs by the Metal band Anvil.
DFA A dance-punk station featuring songs produced by DFA Records.

Ratings

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.
