Christmas is coming, which leads to iTunes gift cards, and so on. So to lead you young and innocent iOS buyers to the right side, we are ready to develop a list of all your soon-to-be-favorite games. With the addition of the OnLive Viewer, this list is certain to less limited than you thought...
1. BackStab by Gameloft
Perhaps my favorite iPhone game, BackStab is that iPhone Assassin's Creed game you've been waiting for. Not to go into detail, but you basically start out running around a 16th century Europe, and end fighting off zombies, evil wizards, and other random supernatural villans. Cool weapons such as the Bio-Bomb will make sure your stay in the four large cities is a fun one.
2. Batman Arkham City
So you wonder "How is Batman Arkham City on the iPhone?". Well, using the Onlive App (For now, only iPad) you can stream the PS3/ Xbox 360 classic straight on to your mobile device. For those who haven't seen the game, you pretty much get to roam Arkham City as the flying-mammal inspired super-hero.
3. Assassin's Creed Revelations by Ubisoft
In a similar deal as Batman Arkham City, you can stream the game straight onto your iPad, and play away. Explore the wide world of Assassin's Creed, and uncover those secrets that have been bothering the backside of your head for a couple of years. Graphics make BackStab (see #1) look like a piece of deformed popcorn.
4. Gangstar Rio: City of Saints by Gameloft
Released pretty recently, Gameloft's final entry into the Gangstar series does almost everything right. Awesome graphics, deadly weapons, customizable character. The only thing I feel I should warn you about is the police battles and difficulty. If you aren't used to losing in a video game, well this will most likely be your day. Missions can be difficult without a bit of strategy.
For those used to the police confrontations made popular in the second entry, these have changed (if anything become more realistic). Escaping the police is so much harder, and without a sufficient supply of ammo, you will most likely end up massacred.
5. Grand Theft Auto 3
Coming December 15th, Grand Theft Auto 3 gives Gangstar Rio a much needed run for its money. I can't tell you if the port is good as of now, but if the game stays faithful to the PS2 original, I can honestly say that the game will rock your mind (if your 18 or older).
There are certainly more Open-World games, but as for right now, these are the best.
