In-game the graphics are... passable. They are occasionally pixelated, but not enough that it looks horrible. It's almost stylish, just not very good...



From what I remember of the PS2 version, there was on open-world element to it.

I can't talk much more about it, I need to go somewhere, but once I'm back I'll play it and post more impressions.
This is not a retina game.

Gameplay is pretty good btw from my experience

** HD on iPhone 4S and iPad 2, with 60Hz display refresh with in-game “Battery Savings” option turned off.**

Does this mean there's an option to turn this on but it drains your battery fast?

Iphone 4 here, and I'm not sure it would look that much better on a 4S. That's not to say it looks bad though, by no means.

I know it's not retina...


The gameplay is actually quite fun. I'm impressed how they handled the controls, actually, they're pretty good. I thought the use of the touch screen in addition to the traditional joystick was pretty awesome.

There's another (default) option in the menu for controls - "touch", but I don't want to use it, joystick serves me just fine.



I think I feel the same way about this that I do about Aralon - the game is not the best looking, but there's a lot of game to enjoy.

Deleting half my MP3s... preparing to sync to iTunes over DSL... if I'm not back in 2 hours assume the game is really good or my iPod melted.

Edit: Make that 3-4 hours for download.
