Thanks for the feedback. In that case I think I'll give it a try on the iPad.

This was one of my favorite games on PS2, I've never cared for virtual controls on the iPhone - but I may just give it a shot here....something to keep me entertained on all the flights I take.

For some reason this was my least favorite of them all and I was and still am a gta fan.

Some missions were borderline impossible on the PS2, I wonder how much more difficult they'll be using virtual controls.

I was looking forward to this release but sadly it drops frames to the point of being unplayable on my gen 3 iPad.

Are the controls that bad in practice? In this video, the car driving is a bit off...don't know if that's the person playing, or the controls just aren't good.

And is aiming decent? Can you touch where you want to aim?

The controls are fine, you can position them anywhere you want. The problem I have is that there is too much lag and dropped frames, this is especially noticeable while driving making it difficult. The helicopter is more or less impossible to fly as it just goes round and round.

Anybody else have the bug on the iPad where the keyboard pops up the moment you open the game and it never goes away? It makes the game unplayable for me

Is it much better/fluid on the iPhone 4S as opposed to the iPhone 4?
