Anyone who has seen Mass Effect Infiltrator, you should all pick it up. I've only spent about an hour with it but it is probably the most fun I've had on the device.

I wonder if

I would get a model that's got a good reputation and not a BRAND NEW one. I'm using that strategy in terms of my smartphone. Even though I'm on Virgin mobile (getting better value without ridiculous pricey plans) I bought my optimus V about 3 weeks ago and I'm really liking it, even though it's a year old. Guess it comes down to needs and preferences. Virgin is getting HTC One V, so that could be my next upgrade in a year if it turns out to be a phone with little issues.

That's the big problems with smartphones- they are rushed and are prone to so much issues. They need more Nokia phones for every carrier... I trust them more than any other manufacturer.

And thankfully, Nokia has jumped head-first into the Windows Phone 7 swimming pool. Great news for me since I'm a big fan of Nokia phones as well.

I went ahead and got it, and it has some serious control issues.

A. The rectangles you have to tap to target the enemies are too small, and it frequently requires more than a single tap to select a target. If you're being surprised and surrounded, it's even worse. Also, on the iPad, I have to let go of one side of the device and move my hand to the target, so actually starting to shoot an enemy takes much longer is reasonable.

B. When you're trying to chain quick kills, adjusting your aim on a new enemy requires you to lift your right thumb and press it back down again — otherwise sliding your thumb around won't do anything. i.e. you can't just keep your right thumb held down to make easy adjustments while you select new targets with your left hand. This is really annoying.

C. Taking cover doesn't seem to work very reliably. Shadowgun handles the same type of cover controls much better.

I wish just tapping the right side of the screen would auto-target the enemy you're aiming closest to. As it is it's more of a chore than fun.

Other than that it's awesome though. :O

Getting better at it, but the touch rects are still way too small and it still feels clunky. Hopefully they'll refine the controls and release an update. Upgrading and buying new weapons ans abilities is really fun though. Enjoying it quite a bit now. :O

Word of advice: don't buy a Gameloft game that isn't Modern Combat 2 or 3. I keep making that mistake and I never fail to regret it.

Only the DSi Ware one was good, 3D was terrible, and I believe 6 was too.

Yeah, don't download Gameloft games. They're universally terrible. That includes Modern Combat, though at least that game has the advantage that there isn't anything better in the FPS genre already on the iPad. :P

To answer your question though, why not just delete the game and redownload the whole lot?

99% of Gameloft games are overrated even when hated drivel that aren't worth a penny. The best Gameloft game I've played is Legends of Exidia on DSiWare and even that was passable mostly.

The Modern Combat games are definitely not "terrible." (I'm really curious as to why you think they are) They absolutely achieve what they intend to: flashy, fast-paced multiplayer shooting. The campaigns are worthless, but that's not the meat of the game. There are some ridiculously fun scenarios in the multiplayer.

My favorite example is CTF on the Avalanche map in MC2. The two teams are on opposite ends of the map with a couple different paths to the other team's base. It usually ends up being a crazy battle with the advantage constantly shifting between teams. Once one team manages to push the other to their base, the respawn times are quick enough so that you'll almost always be a sitting duck if you try to go grab the flag without support from your team. And even if you do, you'll likely be shot in the back if you don't have a teammate covering your retreat.

It's just insane fun. It's not terrible by any stretch of the imagination. The controls are solid once you get your head around them, and IMHO could only be improved if iOS devices had shoulder buttons. The iPad is definitely my favorite device to play FPS's on.

Do you have your own iDevice now? :O

Also, I've been seeing a lot of people talking about Hero Academy, so I'm downloading it now. :3

Hero Academy is beyond fun. Been having an epic battle with Adam this past week... still not sure who's going to win. I wish you could save replays, because it's really one for the history books. :O
unless I lose, of course

Finished ME Infiltrator. It was okay. Repetitive and the controls were occasionally frustrating. There's apparently a massive update coming soon though, so hopefully that'll fix some of the issues I've had with it. :3
