I'm glad I got my iPod Touch 4G back in May. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to play this. :D

No Droid X love? I see X2 on the list but...you're telling me the original isn't powerful enough to run a ps2 game?! =(

That is nice..but i don't really get how you can play majority of the games out there without a gamepad of some sort?

I tried playing a few nice HD games on my droid, and using the virtual pad just really stinks

Gamer, my guess is when the OS restrictions are hacked, it shouldn't be a problem for you. My guess is they are simply taking the highest end androids and saying "yes", while working on testing older phones and opening them up later.

Yea, with a rooted Droid X, I'm sure you will be able to figure out a way. I'm not sure if it restricts your purchase at the market or not based off what phone you have, though.

I remember when this originally hit back in 2001 on PC ...the g4 4600ti was performance king and the game ran horribly even on that. It was rendering unseen objects or something to that effect? I know it wasn't until the ill-fated FX-series that the game ran fluid for everyone. A shame too, the snow mod was great for the game on PC and for it's time it did look gorgeous. I hope it doesn't run like a hog on those phones to completely recapture the glory from ten years ago lol. =X

Thanks for the responses guys, hopefully they do allow the game to work for my Droid X, maybe some tweaking, a patch and some tlc. I just..there's some really nice looking games I'm playing on my Droid X, I can't imagine this not being able to run on it.

I may just have to grab this next week. I loved GTA3! It's going to rock on my iPad and iPhone.
