    Only in the Australian Store, according to TouchArcade but hopefully, it will be released in the US Store too. Wonder why the Australians got it first...

    Link: [App Store]

    Update: Payback is out in the US

    Notice the reviews are for the game when it was released on systems with buttons.

    Yeah, no offense meant to any Australians, but aren't they notorious for banning games like this anyway?

    Ya, 1/28. It'll be out in the US around midnight (the question is... what time zone). It's out in the UK also.

    Well it seems Payback has hit the US Store. I'll wait for some reviews to come in before I pounce on it :)

    Doesn't look half bad. I'm surprised it's not more expensive, well the price may go up depending on how many people download it and the reviews it gets.

    Wow, it's the most in depth game I've seen, and it's full of production quality (even has voice acting!). I love it :D.

    This game is awesome. The graphics are great, the missions are fun, and nothing beats just running around causing mayhem in a city. The driving controls took a little while to get used to, but now I can zoom around the city using the handbrake around turns. I even found a tank within my first hour of playing. It was on the first level under rampage on the average setting. I found it in the back corner of a parking lot right across the street from the pay phone you have to answer. I can't wait to find some more secrets... Anyone still on the fence about this game, if you know you like games like this, don't hesitate. This game is awesome, best iPhone game, period. :D

    Hard to steal? Just walk in front of some cars and hit enter.

    waiting waiting

    we are anxious for this release. coming from old time gta fans back when voodoo 3d was needed or a good glide wrapper, this game looks to really drop nostalgia on my gaming.

    touchmyapps is excited

    Ohhhhh, that makes more sense. I actually think the controls are nice. Just not perfect.

    Stop waiting, cause you know it's out right?

    the game is a lot of fun. Thankfully you dont use the accelerometer to move, only look. For such a large file the startup and level load times are relatively short.
    Overall I recommend.

    Great game. It;'s really quite massive though. It wouldn't let me download it with wifi to my touch though =/ so I had to go walk over to my mac =]
