Just a heads up - there are two versions.

There's an iPhone-only version: ($3.99)
http://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/payback2/id442779965

And a Universal HD version: ($6.99)
http://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/payback2-hd/id558294119?mt=8


Also, they are both the same size... That, to me, seems highly suspicious.

US $6.99 or 5.49€ approx. I agree with Sanuku that the price is a bit too high for what we see in iTunes. I hope it stands to the expectations I have.

Hey JD321, when you say "different weather and times of day", is it as in Payback 1 where depending on the map it was sunny or rainy, or can a same map be sunny or rainy depending on the match you play? Also, can you explain the file size? I'm very happy with 39.4MB compressed, but I'm used to 600MB, and the first Payback was more than 200MB. How can it be? Thanks

Yes, they work for a couple of years and managed to recreate the first game exactly. Just to bore you .

I'll have a gameplay video up in an hour or two!

Essentially the game is just a collection of mini events that all take a minute or two, most of them being either a deathmatch, team deathmatch, ctf, car races, etc...
There doesn't seem to be a real campaign or story or anything like in the First game, so it is a bit different.

Graphically it's pretty much the same as the first.

The controlls are also not too different, driving is handled with tilt controlls and an accelerate and a reverse button, the rest of the game is basically a dual stick shooter.

It's not about the graphics, but I really don't like the camera angle...

Anyway, you'll see what I mean In about 90 minutes.

What really isn't good is the sound: there's no music (it just selects random songs that are on your device) and the quality of the sounds is absolutely terrible.

Have you played it? Why do you say so? Okay that you think it's worse, but could you give more details as to why it's worse?
