I'm in the same boat as you buddy. You know, in the long run - owning this game on our iPod/iPhone is just awesome. IMO, there really isn't any reason NOT to own this game.
About and hour ago, I just paid for Dragons Lair - $4.99 CDN. And now after 20 minutes, I'm bored of it. They were a great 20 minutes and I don't regret buying it - it's just that games like GTA offer so much more replay value.. or rather even just play value.
yea im probably going to buy it evenatually, just a little worried since like i said, high priced games on the ipod are either boring or dont translate well, but this game looks like it doesnt have those problems.
The driving controls on such a tiny and sensitive screen are incredibly frustrating... with a top down view you have almost no visibility (and nighttime or bad-weather ops are even worse) which wouldn't be a problem if the controls were responsive enough to swerve around suddenly appearing objects but they just are not.
This game, unfortunately, is a huge chore and a handicapped port... unless you're a diehard GTA fan without a DS or PSP... this has to be a pass from me.
Instead, if you want this type of game, definitely get GangStar instead.
