Well, I thought the ipad 2 version was bad too. The game doesn't run ipad retina, so the ipad 2, new ipad, and ipad 4 versions should be similar, but I haven't had the game loaded in awhile, so I will reload it, I got a new ipad, ios 6.0.1. I'll get back to you later about it. Ios 6.0.1 made most of my games better framerate wise, you on 6.0.1 or 6.0? Upgrade to 6.0.1 if not, it is making a lot of my games run better.

The characters have always been smooth on my iphone 4, on my new ipad, they are jerky, I don't think it is just a framerate problem, but I kind of regret buying the hd version when the sd version is far superior.

Wowzers, loaded the hd version on my new ipad ios 6.0.1. Man, you guys are right, it looks even worse now on ios 6 vs ios 5. What a mess. It was pretty bad before I thought but playeable, but now, it is a mess. Unplayeable, terrible.

Oh well, guess I will have to play it on my iphone 4. Hope ios 6 didn't screw that one up too.

How's it look on the ipad 4 with 6.0.1? Figure the same, but maybe runs better with the better cpu/gpu?

But terrible, I don't recommend the hd version for any ipaders. It really is terrible now. Buy the sd version for your phone. We need an update bad.

Loaded the iPhone version and it plays the same! Definitely not just a resolution issue, must be someone with the game itself. Too bad, really wanted to play it.

This… As you said is just terrible. It's like bad stop motion and not animation.

Why anyone would want to play this with its prehistoric rosters is beyond my understanding. Shame on you, EA.
