I have a iPhone 4S and curious as to how it looks on one. Somehow the gameplay looks just so so to me. I may skip this one and save my $ for something else

Well, darn it, I'm actually having fun with this. On the iPhone 4 the game looks quite a bit better than Miami Vindication. Yes, there are glitches, as well as texture pop-in, and some pretty low-surfaces. But the place feels convincingly like a real city, which is much more than I can say about the previous two installments. It helps that Rio is much more diverse and interesting than the Miami in Vindication. It's actually a lot of fun to run around the favelas -- there are tons a little nooks and hidden areas. It also helps that you can walk into several buildings around town, and that there are definitely more pedestrians and cars than I remember from previous Gangstars. The city doesn't feel as crowded as in GTA:CW, but it's not a ghost town either.

The story is typical Gameloft, and the voice acting ranges from mediocre to pretty wretched. But the characters have detailed and fully articulated faces, so you get much more of a sense of people rather than mission-delivery devices. I am finding myself pretty immersed, which I didn't expect at all. When I started up the game, I originally intended to give it a few minutes just to check it out, but I ended playing for over an hour before I knew it.

So far I say money well spent, at least based on my original expectations.

I'd give up whatever to live in Hawaii. Specifically Kauai, where I''ve visited 4 times so far! I'd live in Kapa'a if I could! Hope this iteration of Gangstar is better than the last. Is it? If not, that's OK.

Is this any good, as now you're supposed to be able to go inside buildings this time. How's the game play, graphics, etc. compared to the last one? Any impressions?
