It's been a while since I've played it so I can't really remember that well but I did enjoy the game overall. I liked the story, characters, the fact that it was in IV's Liberty City. I also really liked the drug dealing and although gimmicky, many of the mini games were fun too.
Unfortunately, however, I have to agree that it's biggest problem is the core gameplay due to the top down view. I had the same issue with the pre- III games and I was never that keen on them but it seemed worse somehow on the handhelds. The top down driving is - at best, very difficult and at worst, vomit inducing. I did genuinely find myself feeling a sick while playing it at times and quite often I would opt to just run everywhere rather than drive simply because it was easier to look at as well as play. As I said, I did enjoy a lot of it but after finishing the story, I just have no desire to play it anymore which is unusual for a gta game.
Another thing that disappointed was that they didn't add voice acting to the PSP version. I don't mind reading the subtitles but I just think it would have been better.
Wasn't too fussed about the radio either. Only liked Sinowav and one other.
