it is just me that thinks the iphone is not a good platform for this kinds of games?

I mean, there's a few games that fit great on the iPhone like Monkey Ball or the moto chaser.., but this one looks really annoying and uncomfortable. Still, it was made for a phone.., so you cant think your getting much.

The game actually looks amazing. It plays well too, and it's fun to roam around the city in rampage mode just breaking stuff. Sure, it's not as interactive as it could be, but just technologically it's a great feat on the iPhone, with HDR lighting and explosions. Of course, it might not be as smooth on devices other than the iPod Touch 2G, which I'm playing it on.
