Complaints on the view

As you drive it renders what comes next. In the normal view the distance of the view would be huge and thus your handheld would not cope. Additionally the view allows a 360 3D view whilst only using Isometric sprites which reduces the cpu work load on your device.
If you want the real type of view you need a more powerful console like the PC/PS3/XBOX etc
For me they made a pretty good good for what the DS's hardware allows. Good job Rockstar
Has lots of potential for future versions.

But no its not as powerful as the xbox and the only reason why is this:
You can't put say a 16GB game on a DS no matter what generation. Where as the PC/Consoles on blueray can... the max ive seen a DS game size is about 200meg and that is very rare. So they are limited in that aspect.

|No, it's simply all to do with the the hardware limitations of the DS. It's view is made so that LODing is minimal (If at all) and a manageable amount of detail is seen on screen. It's little to do with art style choice (Although that would have been factored in making the 3D Isometric view work).|
I'm just saying, it bears a strong similarity to the first few GTA games, and they probably had fun "going back to the past" a bit, even if the top-down wasn't the original decision.
