    Pretty straight forward question.. Which one do you guys think is better, iPad apps are pricey and I do not want to waste money. Also the fact that they do not have "lite" version for most iPad apps kinda stinks. So which shall it be?

    Neither my favorite is Real Racing HD

    That's a bad comparison, because it's a completely different genre. Asphalt 5 and Need for Speed are arcade racers, Real Racing is a racing simulator, going for realism instead of simple arcade fast-action.

    I got both and enjoy both. NFS Shift is incredible!

    Actually, I've tried NFS Shift on the PS3 and I felt that it was much closer to a racing sim than an arcade game. Will try the iPad version when my 3G gets here :)

    Yeah, with the console versions Shift turned the game into a simulator, but the handheld ones it's still mostly arcade.

    I'm not paying over $10 for a game regardless of the name. EA always does this on new platforms, charge $10 too much, they did it with the DS and psp, my money went to asphalt 5, I'm sure shift is good, but I'm not paying $15.

    I only have asphalt 5 and it's a pretty solid game. Great graphics and a smooth driving game.
