Glad you got the word out here. I noted you posted in the upcoming games section which does not get the same traffic - I asked Devilishly Good to post the correct info here - but here it is... Soory Devilish - I did not see SMG on the current active user screen...

Anyways - looks like a great game. I'll be anxious to try it out. Got to take my son to dinner first though...

Yeah, this game is so cool. Graphics are amazing, and gameplay is adequate. It's more of an arcade experience than a full on campaign mode though. But for $1.99, that's a really good price.

Can anyone give (at least) a brief review of this game?

I've been waiting for this to come out, but (iTunes) money's a little tight, and i'd like to hear some impressions first.

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.

Curious to see how the graphics'll look on the 3GS. Might pick this up later, as F.A.S.T has filled me up pretty well lately.
