    Hey everyone. I'm looking for a really demanding game for the iPhone. Something that slows down, freezes, crashes or otherwise looks good but is often difficult to work with. Nothing poorly made, but something where I can show the power of the PowerVR SGX in the iPhone 3G S compared to the PowerVR MBX-Lite in the 2g and 3g. Doesn't have to be free, and credit will be given. I don't mind if its your's or not just as long as it meets the criteria.

    Okay, laugh all you like but im going to say Sims 3, it drains my battery, crashes & stalls and there is quite a lot going on. Good game though.

    A man of the people. The right sort of people.
    I get occasional slowdown on Mafia Wars on the 3G :D

    Cube. It has amazing graphics for a mobile device and is a complete if unusable game. It's two problems are the controls and the frequent lag whenever you have any monsters on the screen.

    Cube was good. Took a few minutes to get adjusted to the controls tho. :)

    Very nice list. I had considered Sims 3 but I figured they'd optimize it for the 2G/3G hardware. Guess not!

    Thanks all.

    Oh yes. Sims 3 plays a breeze, but Katamari?
    It's like a bad stop-motion.
