    Didn't see one so I'll start one

    I only got Game Board so far.

    It's terrible, it's basically a game board background with pieces on it. For example in chess the pieces don't lock on to squares, you have to manually remove pieces, you can move however you like, etc

    In Poker when I try to flip cards it exits out almost every time

    X-Plane-9 for iPad is amazing, it is an upgrade over the iPhone version and not quite the full desktop version. The motion controls are very responsive, it has a bunch of different camera views and the cockpit controls are interactive.

    My only gripe is that it can be a little hard operating the throttle, flaps, etc while holding the iPad in place to control the yoke.

    The graphics are beautiful.

    Overall I would give it a 8/10

    Command and Conquer: Red Alert seems pretty awesome so far, I only played through one level but it was really good.

    Also, harbor master HD is fun if you're in to those sorts of games, and free!

    Has anyone tried Uno or Let's Golf HD yet? I only have $8 left on my iTunes account so I have to find a game under $8.

    Thinking about trying command and conquer. So far best games are worms, civilization and Sam and Max.

    Got Plants vs. Zombies for the iPad (or it may be the other way around--Zombies vs. Plants.) It's terrific and the zombies moan, "Brainssss...." hilariously.

    really liking NOVA. The incorporation of finger gestures into this game is really cool. I also wanted to get a racing game and had to decide between realracing and need for speed. I got realracing and have been very happy for it. Need for speed is probably pretty nice too.

    I recommend Charadium HD. Sooooo good and fun

    It's basically pictionary. Quality app. A bit high at $5 but worth it

    I'm only aware of GraalOnline and something Legends. Legends is freemium, unsure about GraalOnline.

    I also got Worms HD. It's not very smooth. Not terrible but not smooth

    +1 for NOVA. This game is tempting me to get Sandstorm HD now instead of waiting for a price drop.

    Even though its not a game, sketchpad pro is amazing, the graphics looks great and it actually feels like your drawing on paper. Incredible, i recommend.
