    It's finally here, the long awaited game running on the UT 3 engine, demoed at keynotes, and the teaser Epic Citadel...

    And it's onl 7.99 AUD (which I am guessing means what, 6.99 or 5.99 USD).

    I am at work, so I can't download it yet, but wheN I get home!!!

    8.29 in US

    I've been playing for about 30 minutes and I think I can safely say Game of the Year if not game of the forever for iOS.

    Not yet. There's a placeholder for it already though.

    "epic" is very appropriate

    I don't like the genre but graphics are wonderful. I can't believe it's running on the iPhone!

    I wish we were able to freely walk around, click to go where we want. Games like that just seem too linear and even though your doing the clicking, you should just be on rails like RAGE HD

    The battery in my iPad ****ing hates me. Thankfully, I have a Mophie on my iPhone 4 and it's starting to curse at me.

    This is epic. I can't believe that a little bitty cell phone can do this.

    best iOS game. possibly ever if they keep expanding the castle. its grind heavy, but its not tedious grinding, so that keeps it very enjoyable.

    It depends on how you want to play, there are people on the Epic Games forums who have claimed to beat the game on Bloodline 1

    Wowee!

    This game is probably the first action game that felt like it was actually designed with a touch screen in mind. The controls are tight and the visuals are spectacular, :D

    I'm very impressed and it was totally worth the price of admission, particularly since it's universal and plays excellently on the iPad. The texture quality is toned down in the iPad version but even so, it's the prettiest iOS game that I've ever laid eyes on.

    I've beaten the godking now, got both endings. I've mastered all the armours and I'm working on mastering the zeus ring, Odin's Wistom, 2 more shields and 12 more weapons (including the eponymous Infinity Blade).

    I suppose the other thing left is the achievements, where I have about 8 left; Combo attacks (I haven't managed a 5x combo or the 1k combos yet), Parries (I just can't do it... I have managed 50.), Stabs (I miss them), 100k gold (time), Finding all the gold (I don't know, unobservant I guess) and 20 bloodlines (I've done 10).

    It's not a bad little game this. Well worth £3.50

    I got the alternate ending on my second bloodline. I just need more blocks and I can beat that guy. I just want free roam and I am soooo happy they put a fast forward in there.

    Learn to dance. I had about 21 block when I beat the God King 1st time. I dodge pretty well.

    Beat the king on Bloodline 5. I'm having a bit of trouble with hit detection on parries though.

    The...ending twist is interesting, to say the least.

    It's pretty amazing...!

    I've got a guy on my iPad who's a pure tank, level 37 with over 10k HP and all but one or two items mastered -- saving for infinity blade soon.

    I'd been having trouble killing the level 150 king, however, I've started to dodge instead of parry and I've found its much better vs the king, I learned that while playing it on my iPhone (pure attack damage).

    I went back and started a new game on my iPad instead of iPhone 4 this time. Beat the king on Bloodline 2, then again (level 100) Bloodline 3 xD

    Yeah it's a rails game, but you should look at NOVA2 if you want the freedom to go where you want.
