    No, sorry. A lot of handheld driving games tend to be on PSP instead.

    garrrrr :'(

    The DS is really lacking, Resident Evil (cannot get into deadly silence since i beat the orignal on the PSX), Evil Dead, Spawn, Thrill kill, Killer Instinct, Metal Slug, and Vigilante 8 or even RogueTrip vacation: 2012 [​IMG]

    hint, hint developers!

    Guess i'm just underwhelmed in the lack of fun titles for the DS.

    i think DS is not the console for those games.
    hence its audience.

    Not sure just how much stock developers would take in anything said on this particular forum -- if there were any developer even reading it. [​IMG]

    Why don't you get a PSP ? You can play most of those games on PSP, with emulators and such.

    Don't tempt me, cause i want one but can't afford it at the moment with all my bills, that PSP slim looks pretty cool but dunno if they have defeated the homebrew firmware on it yet.

    plus i just got my DS like 2 months ago, so didn't know EVERY game thats out for it. Tried looking through the release list, but don't know if thats every title listed that came to market.

    Yeah. These games tend to be better on PSP, because of differences in processing power. It has more 3D support.

    It's well known the DS Burnout turned out a lot worse than PSP's. While Outrun, Crazy Taxi, and the two GTAs have no DS versions.

    But what really annoys me is the lack of wrestling, boxing, or even mixed martial arts on DS. There currently is not a single one released yet in any region over 2 and a half years after launch.

    Although it does have fighters... Comparing Guilty Gear to WWE, Fight Night, or UFC doesn't work. Entirely different.

    Personally, I think the Transformers is the closest resemblance you can get, you may wanna give it a try.

    it is sort of like a mecha GTA with a whole lot of vehicles to drive around.
