From what I understand, there is a way to get the map onto the top screen standard gta style - go to the options and have a look

just checked it. thanks. what it does is put the gps arrows on the road itself. also you can select radar on too, which shows important locations at the sides of the screen. Pretty damn good really.

wow, that sounds great! I picked this up last weekend but won't get around to it until this summer; still, it's good to hear about the gps on the road. If only they'd add this on console versions---I think one of my big problems with GTA4 is that my tv is pretty small and so it was very hard to get around using the gps b/c I couldn't really see it! So I'd crash a lot just b/c I'd be staring at that. Whereas, say what you will about Fable 2, the trail of dots was awesome for negotiating without a map.

this is much better, thanks

Still quite hard to drive, just because the roads are so narrow compared to what I'm used to

laffed at there being a mission called "Dragon Haul Z", but got quite annoyed when I kept fucking it up

two weeks pass...

Yeah - the thing that is stopping me from getting into this game is the driving - it just fucking sucks :(

four weeks pass...

Apparently this is coming to the psp in the fall. It seems like a weird fit, as one of the big selling points is the touch screen mini-games. It'll be interesting to see how it's different though.

I really should actually play this.

one month passes...

And now I have. I like it! Pretty much what everyone said above - goofy fun, great stylus use. Tweaking the "car distance" and top-screen GPS arrows made it much better. Amazing mileage out of the DS hardware, especially considering there is no loading!

car distance?

I got this too, began playing it but then started Chrono Trigger for the Players' Club. So I'll be coming back to this soon. It seemed fun, did the first few missions, was sad to see the girl killed so soon.

Not 100% sure but I think it tweaked the overhead zoom setting while driving (further out for more cars) which made it more playable, but probably bogged down the framerate more. There was also a weird setting for "auto-steering" that I turned off once I realized it was on by default, I think that helped too.

nine years pass...

Need to play this again
