Worms HD. It's fun, and what can be more gorgeous than a cartoon worm with a rocket launcher?

Plants VS Zombies

It's gorgeous. It's fun. It's deep and engaging.

And it's BETTER with touch, so it's MADE for the iPad.

NFS:Shift is extremely gorgeous and plays like a dream. Highly recommended.

Real Racing, Worms is cool too but not jaw dropping. The Sam n Max game is the most jaw dropping gorgeous though out of pretty much all the games so far.

For 2D: Plants VS Zombies definitely. My favorite all around

3D: real racing in my experience, but Ive only purchased a few.

Just out of curiosity, what is the purpose this post?

Are you recommending a game you haven't played or just asking? Why would you ask in a thread that is actually requesting recommendations?

Sometimes I wonder why I keep coming to back these forums.

From what I saw on YouTube it looked pretty good. But Like I said I havent seen it myself. Meaning in person. I've also seen other say that game looked good. I was just bringing it up into the discussion.

Just out of curiosity, what is the purpose of YOUR post!?

N.O.V.A HD is great, Asphalt 5, Real Racing, CoD WaW, Fieldrunners, Low Grav Racer 2, Dungeon Hunter HD (although the graphics aren't that improved)

Looks pretty good, ain't no Sam n Max though! It looked pretty outdated on the Pc as well though so can't really expect it to be a showcase game on the iPad.

Since you have COD Zombies for iPad, is it really very laggy as I've read about?

I second Sam and Max. Best looking game in the iPad to date. Much better than Real Racing.

And yes, it's really fun if you like adventure games (like the old LucasArts games).

Great thread so far! I don't have many games on my iPad yet and saw screenshots of the geometry game, which looked really nice. So I was curious what other games take full advantage of the ipad's gorgeous screen...

It's not a game but Eyewitness shows off the beauty of pictures on the iPad. And it's free. Worth a check out.
