    What are some good games that really show off the graphical prowess of the iPad Air?

    I hate to break up the complaining party.....

    The prettiest would probably be Infinity Blade 3 but I refuse to spend 6$ on a tap and swipe game no matter how pretty it is.

    If you like racing games, Asphalt 8 is a pretty good looking game and free.

    I'm a big Infinity Blade fan. Worth the $7 IMO. Maybe IB1 or 2 is cheaper?

    Real Racing 3 is free.

    And one of my favorites, the Big Red Button. It's free too.

    I've been playing Bards Tale, Bastion and Device 6. Waiting on Oceanhorn to come out and eventually want to pick up some of the Final Fantasies such as Tactics. Infinity Blade is cool, but got old fast. I'll pick it up during an inevitable holiday sale.

    Oceanhorn. Came out last night. Zelda clone for iPad. Pretty awesome so far.

    5 star review on TouchArcade

    I agree with Dead Trigger 2 and Asphalt 8 above. DT2 is actually a very nice approach to FPS by having it auto-fire when crosshairs hit target. I like that dumbed down approach for mobile.

    Real Racing 3 might be good too, but I refuse to reward IAP abuse in the same way I refuse to reward tantrums with my children.

    Riptide GP2. Cost $2.99 but so far, we'll worth it. It runs beautifully on the Air and really blew me away graphics-wise.

    Infinity Blade 3 looks great, but I am more impressed by the clarity of Galaxy on Fire 2 and even N.O.V.A. 3. Those look even more impressive to me than IB3.

    Other recommendations, depending on your playstyle, are Asphalt 8, Kingdom Rush, Osmos HD, Real Racing 3.

    I've become hopelessly addicted to Clash of Clans. May not push the graphical limits of the iPad Air, but it runs great and is pretty fun.

    It's pretty cool cause your game lives in the cloud. So you can switch back and forth between iPad and iPhone without a hitch.
