Is Infinity Blade a role playing game or is it more like those arena fighting games (Mortal Kombat....) with some walking around? I really like Aralon - is it like that?

Its nothing like Aralon. It has pre scripted timeline where you can sometimes choose a different path but thats it.

When a dev has to pick up someone else work, disaster.
When that dev picking up the work already has a reputation for running themselves into the ground, hopeless.
38 studios was an extremely talented team. They don't have a bad reputation of going under because of a failed development team, they went under because of very poor management and investments.

Epic was clearly not prepared to pass the work over to the new team, and its biting them in the butt..

It sounds like the issue is more that someone wants to keep adding crap to the game rather than just polish and release it. Remember what happened with duke nukem

Bingo. The giveaway line is "implementing all these great ideas required a little extra time."

Sounds like they need a manger to step in and say "that's a great idea, but let's ship this game and put those other great ideas in the next version".

I guess maybe it will be an iPad 4 launch title now.

It should run great on an A6 with PowerVR Rogue graphics.
"Clearly"? Hindsight is 20/20.
