Can someone tell me what to expect with this gameplay. Is it a must have? I'm just not sure what the gameplay is like.

Skate around and graffiti things to fight an oppressive social order. Grunts from the regime will show up for combat and to try to keep you down. The frantic skating around and colorful personality versus social order theme makes it a cult classic; not sure how the iOS port will turn out.

Oh wow. Would it really be compatible with the 3GS and iPad 1? That would be awesome.
I have been playing this on the Xbox 360 for the past weeks and I still love it.

The screenshots look great. It is nice that they show the controls. Curious how they work in practice. Looking forward to impressions.

Bought yesterday for the Ps Vita and I have to say that the game looks
better than the original version, JSR and CRAZY TAXI are really
ever green games, it' incredible that these games have almost 12 years...

Ah! Yes! I've been waiting for this one for quite a while. Will definitely be picking this up tonight! Although I still have my Dreamcast and JSR, this is one Sega game I need for my on-the-go playing!
