The game plays very well according to people from my sites forums. It's supposedly fun but it can get a low framerate issue ...guessing 20fps-ish.
Due to this people with the handheld version of penis envy been saying the NG version is superior. The NG version has loads less drawn to the screen, less overall detail, poorer audio quality, and is probably a bit on the more annoying side to control... but hey it's got a smooth framerate so that makes it better right? (not) The only real problem some have who can't try and get used to it is that the touch panel is used to queue up items, but also to do pinpoint aiming on enemies so oyu need to juggle that while nailing the SHOOT button on the handheld too. Overall if you are a SC fan, the game will likely satisfy.
