I see some serious issues in the mission 1 video just skating up a few ramps that can easily be reprogrammed to work better.

Looks good and I'm really looking forward to playing this. Sega suprised me with how good Crazy Taxi was and hoping this is as good. I had a dreamcast and loved these 2 games so 12 or so years later to be playing them on an ipad mini is superb for me.

Yeah the Control-System is definitely having some Issues. During the Graffiti Mini Games a few Swipes/Circles were not recognized. The Game isn`t supporting the Multi-Touch Display Option so you can`t press more then one Button and the Virtual Joystick at the same time.

And still the rest of the Game has after so many Years nothing lost of it`s Magic...

Given how quick they updated Crazy Taxi and the way they kept in the original music and stuff.. and seeing this game has most of the original music and charm from the DC... even if the controls are less than perfect i'm cool with that. Being able to press one button at a time while directing where to go is fine. That's pretty much how I remember playing the original.

Yeah Power Stone (and Power Stone 2) would be great... though Capcom would have to port them. Skies of Arcadia though.. that is something Sega could port. Outside of the DC though... I wish Sega would port over OutRun 2006 Coast to Coast. That would be a great addition to my roster of arcade racers on iOS. Final Freeway is pretty close to classic OutRun... but the modern version was my favorite.

JSR tonight! I'm so amped and I have tons of free space since I cleaned off everything except what I'm playing on my iPhone (everything else is on my PC in iTunes).

This! I've been wanting to see Skies of Arcadia on the iPad for a long while. I still have my Dreamcast and SoA, but it's something I have to drag out to play. Having SoA on my iPad would be just perfect!

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks for that Sanuku!

Even with those issues... I'll probably wind up picking this one up. Hopefully Smilebit will get those multitouch issues and unresponsive swipes worked out soon. This game looks absolutely fantastic. Can't believe I"ve never heard of it before now. =oO

My question is, will this game run any better than crazy taxi does on the 4th gen iPod touch, because crazy taxi is very choppy and slow on my 4th gen.
