Payback looks amazing. This is coming from someone who hasn't really found *any* of the games currently out interesting.

Looking to NFS as well. Sim City is cool, but the interface is just too clunky an d the game too laggy.

I'd much rather they fixed the bugs. For a game like that, $10 is nothing, but I'm not going to buy it until I hear it doesn't crash very often and everything works.

Ditto that.

If you're into that game and/or have played it on the PC/Mac, it was worth it at $10! I mean what did i pay for it before? at least $40 and it's pretty much the full game! I recommend this game as a definite buy for those of you who know what you're getting into.

for those that are on the fence, you may want to wait because or play maybe the linux game LinCity to get an idea of managing a city, because that is the only thing you do! $2 off doesn't make that much of a difference though IMHO


by the way, you'd think with that price decrease they'd update the game!! who's with me?!


PS @dwsolberg I'm on iPhone 3G 16GB newest firmware and i've never had it crash.. just FYI i'm an example of an issue-free purchase

far as i know they've fixed the bugs.. never had it crash and i've logged 10+ hours on my city. bought it when it was 10, well worth it.. and i hate 99% of EA games.
