Wow... that was a pretty unexpected release. Seeing as it looks like a top-down, moblie phone game I'll take a look, but I'm not expecting TOO much. Then again, I have been surprised by games that looked mediocre but turned out to be fun.

Great, hope it turns out to be a good game. I considered it, but for $3, and seeing how it looks almost nothing like the console one, I'm a bit hesitant. I'll wait for impressions first.

Quick impressions:

1) It's clearly a port of a mobile game.

2) For a mobile port, it's not bad at all.

Graphics have been nicely upscaled for the iPhones (no blur at all), the game makes good use of the touch screen, the d-pad is, for the most part responsive, character animation is not horrible, movement is not tile based. I don't know much about the console game, but I guess that you play the same character here. I've gone through 2 full missions so far, each one broken up into a series of chapters. Mostly, you're killing nazis ("business is ahh-booming") with a variety of weapons. There's a stealth/line-of-sight system which allows you to do instant kills with a knife, but you can also blast your way through the levels using an auto-targetted pistol or machine gun.

I should also note that the production values in the menus, sound, music are all very nice.

As long as you can live with the fact that the game is an isometric mobile action title, it's not bad at all.

Looks good. Video would be great. First thing I thought was Commandos for my ipod touch. How brilliant would that be?
