To continue our plight into the best games of the iPhone, lets take a look at one of the most profitable genres of all time: Action and Hack n' Slash. Starting with Devil May Cry and God of War, this series has entertained young and old gamers for more than a decade (if you count Legacy of Kain, the date gets larger). Yes my friends, that same genre is present on your cellular phones and devices, and in many cases, better than on consoles.
1. Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands
OnLive Viewer works wonders, as now you don't have to wait another couple years for Gameloft to port the more-than-fantastic entry over to your portable. Awesome storyline, breath-taking leaps of faith, and flexible movement gives you the perfect chance to quench that thirst you've been developing since "Warrior Within". Graphics are spectacular, but the touch controls can cause you a problem in the long run.
Get the demo now using the OnLive viewer, or buy the game for retail price. Also available on the OnLive viewer is "Prince of Persia 2008". Thanks Ubisoft!
2. Hero of Sparta 2
The original Hero of Sparta didn't exactly attract customers, but Hero of Sparta 2 all changed that for Gameloft. Taking a new perspective on the series (complete multiperspective 3D) and improved combat makes it one of the iPhone and iPad's most beloved and polished off games to date.
3. Batman Arkham Asylum
OnLive lives up to its potential of bringing top games onto a relatively small devices. Batman Arkham Asylum is that prime example. The jewel shined on the PS3, and know you can bring around this gem wherever you go, without a disc or a hunking PS3.
Arkham City is also available through OnLive.
4.Spiderman: Total Mayhem by Gameloft
Spider-Man Total Mayhem may be Gameloft's best action adventure game ever, combining acrobatic combat and slow motion combat with a classic beat-em up formula. The controls work perfectly (and can even be adjusted), and the action keeps you kept up in the game. The game is pretty long too.
5. Devil May Cry 4: Refrain
This port may not feature the graphics of a Gameloft game, but it does stay pretty faithful to its original with stylized combat, awesome non-stop combos, and epic boss battles. The story is almost exactly the same (except the storyline is told through pictures, not cut-scenes). Devil Trigger Nero and Dante also give you something to work towards.
If anything, these games are the only reason to not chuck your iPhone at the wall in frustration.
