Interested to hear some more impressions though.
From Sanuku's video, comments from DerKleine and my experience with Payback 1, which I played A LOT on the GBA, I think this is not exactly like GTA, nor even Payback 1. This seems like the missions you found in Payback 1 when free roaming around the city, but without the free roaming. Yes, you can roam freely while you look for gangsters to kill, but to get to each mission you don't have to find a phone cabin in which the boss gives you the mission, you just choose it from the main menu. Then you're laid somewhere in the map and there you go: have a race, kill gangsters, etc.
I said it was instabuy, but now I don't know what to do. On one hand it seems a great idea very well suited for mobile phones: 1-2 minute missions single-player or online multiplayer which you can play when you have a few minutes to spare. On the other hand, it looks like another dual stick shooter.
One thing which can turn me towards buying it is the possibilities that generating your own missions give you, but the fact that there's no story -even a simple one like "I want to be the king of the city, let's make money"- turns me down. I'll think about it in the next few hours and read what others have to say about the game before deciding if I buy or not. One good thing is that it is a premium game. Period. No IAP nor anything similar. I appreciate that. Also the filesize. 44MB installed is just great.
