But isn't there an option to handle all with touch controls?!?!? The developer said they had implemented an all-touch based control option.

yep, you can change the vehicle controlls to touch only (=> so then it's all-touch), it's not the default and tilt worked fine for me, so I didn't really check before.

Thanks. What's the size once installed? I've seen 40MB files which occupy 200MB installed... Is Payback2 one of these?

From what I can see it's between 43 and 44 mb installed

Well, if it's good, I might consider this. I don't have any of the GTA games on my device currently mainly due to lack of space. But I can't see how this could possibly be that good of a GTA-clone with that file size. Certainly not as "open world".

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.

This shouldn't be called payback 2. Its nothing like the first. Its a bunch of bot matches in small environments. It might be good in its own right, but its not a GTA style game at all.

The camera spinning all over gives me severe motion sickness. I can only play for a minute until I feel nauseous.

I was going to ask about that, is there a way to set it where the camera doesn't spin around?

Nope. ll you can do is change the camera height.
