We've already seen a trailer for this game. It's a "competitor of GTA" to quote an early hint before it was announced at E3. It certainly looks like it, but we'll see if the gameplay holds up. It's a fully 3D sandbox style game and unlike GTA DS which had an overhead view, this one has a camera that behaves closer to the console GTA games. Basically, it looks like "what if GTA were on PS1 or N64". Anyways, 10 minutes of footage was taken by cam on the E3 show floor. Checks it out- I won't lie that these GTA sandbox games aren't my kind of game. They are good games, but the genre just doesn't click with me. However, I will try this game anyways just in case my mind changes someday. No release date yet except TBA 2009.
