Gangstar: Miami Vindication (release Sept 23; new screenshots!)

Quote:
"Gangstar: Miami Vindication now has a release date– we'll be driving around Miami on our iPhones on September 23rd. Also, Gameloft has told us there will be 75 missions included across an open world "amazing reconstruction" of Miami which will feature varied environments such as a downtown area, swamps, beaches, and others. The law enforcement AI is also apparently significantly improved, a welcome change from the previous Gangstar.
Miami Vindication will also sport a varied soundtrack of all kinds of licensed tracks, and a storyline written by one of the writers of the TV show The Wire."

Gameloft presents Gangstar: Miami Vindication, the most ambitious crime simulation ever developed for handheld. Coming soon to iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Trailer's song from the soundtrack of the game: The Qemists - Stombox, available on iTunes http://itunes.apple.com/album/stomp-box/id301181995?i=301181996

this game evalution is same as GTA, but with bad graphics. I don't know what to say really - bad or good. New cars, boats, helicopters but why they don't give to Gangster same......... livelier, realistic streets. Like CTW , people always walks on street, but here ? Empty street.

Well you are comparing PS2 and PS3/360 titles to an iPhone/iPad game. Also, you are comparing a 2.5d vs. a 3d game.

iPhone and Gameloft games are much more fun if you aren't expecting home console quality experiences.

Currently Playing: Plants vs. Zombies, The War of Eustrath, Zenonia 1, Phoenix Wright, The Quest

In addition to the poor graphics, a lot of the map is just a reskin of the original Gangstar, most notably :21. This video definitely didn't sell me the game at all, it seems worse than the first, aside from the new vehicles.

Take a look at second 31...Bugs in the background graphics. And take a look on the streets - EMPTY- .The world seems to be much bigger, so the worse graphics are no problem for me.

Edit : For me this looks like an Alpha Version... If this is already in Beta State, I am really dissappointed. The background bug is everywhere !

It does indeed look a little ugly, but if they create enough of a storyline i'l probably still get it. I always found the driving twitchy as hell on the first though, so I hope that gets fixed considering verticality is added too with flight.
