I haven't purchase or downloaded the game yet. But if you look at the user reviews in the market, it is working on the GN2. What I'm thinking, this is like the Vice City situation where it works, but somehow there is something with the market place and the Sprint variant. If it is the same, then you can download from your working device, say tablet, play the game, at least once.
Then you can extract the APK, with something like ES Explorer, and then copy the extra download files from the OBB directory and paste onto the GN2 after installing the APK.
