    Which game(s) should I primarly get for my iPad? I want fun game (I used to play on pocket consoles and still playing on stationary consoles), that presents power of an iPad. For the first ones I bet Real Racing HD and Plant vs. Zombies - is it a good choise and which should I get first? (Eeehm, I just do not want to waste my gift card by buying some crappy games)

    Then you will want to avoid Gameloft games, as they have crappy 3D graphics, sub-par game engine (see Nova, brothers in arms, iron man --- all essentially built on the same engine, just texture skinned differently) and their control systems have always been mediocre or sometimes pure crap. don't even get me started on AI and how they spawn

    Mirror's Edge is expensive but well worth it.

    I've been playing Angry Birds HD obsessively. I know some buyers of the Iphone game are upset because I guess it's just a larger version of that, but I don't care - it's just a really involving, insane game. I'm not interested in the accelerometer-based games for the Ipad, those seem ridiculous, but anything that has detail is really great - things that were more complicated simply because of the small size of the Iphone screen like Angry Birds.

    Really -- I find my fingers slipping off of the controls... I have it but gave up after the first play or 2 -- May need to check it out again.

    Not sure what part of the word you are in, but in Canada I don't think you can use a giftcard to buy apps.

    No way!

    I used to play this non stop on the Xbox 360, and it's sequel and it's numerous game modes were also outstanding.

    Shame this is only on iPad, I would love this on iPhone too.

    Edit: the six game modes from Geometry Wars 2 are in the iPad version, superb!

    Is it just me or does PVZ get a bit boring once you get on the roof... I was having all sorts of fun but once I got to the roof I lost interest.

    Thanks for pointing this out to me, I would've wasted my money otherwise.

    But, can I use Vanilla Pre Paid Credit cards and use that for apps?

    Yes, after playing the 360 version for about a million hours I did find the control on the iPad to be a bit, shall we say "different". But, after a surprisingly long time playing it on the can, I found myself addicted.

    Yeah, now what I'm waiting for is for someone to hack it so a PS3 controller can be used instead of the screen "sticks". But while I'm on that note, I'll just hope they come out with a Retro Evolved 3 on the 360 ;) Wish in one hand...
