Console quality experience

I'm looking for games that truly provide an experience good enough to rival my 360. So far my list consist of: Dead Space, Sky Gamblers, NFS MW and of course Bastion(amazing gameplay). While I did enjoy GL's MC3, however the controls left me... not so happy. Real Racing 2 while looking good, was just a frustrating slippery mess(in my opinion) and hopefully firemint will nail proper physics and vehicle behavior for RR3. However I will say after playing NFS MW, firemint is facing a serious challenge. By the way for the know-it-alls, I'm aware that iron monkeys n firemint are now one team. However both games were already in individual development long before the merger happened.

I suppose I should add The Walking Dead to that list. MW and Bastion r eating up all my time right now. What would you add?

What do you mean by "console quality"? As good as, say Silent Hill 2? Or as bad as Enter the Matrix?

IMO, "console quality" is a meaningless term. What you really mean is "big budget" or "not casual." Interestingly, many of the games you mention are indie games (Bastion, for example).

There are, of course, many games in the App Store that provide meaningful experiences. Many of them are ports from other platforms (The World Ends With You, for instance); others like Incoboto, Chaos Rings 1 & 2, or Wimp are iOS originals. Those games are great not because they are "console quality" but because they are made with heart and brains by people who respect their audience.

Easy:

Shadowgun
Shadowgun: Deadzone
Nova 3
Mass Effect: Infiltrator
Lili

PS: I thought RR2 physics were spot on. Are you an arcade racing fan? The grip you get in those games are fake...RR2 has got real life physics reminiscent of the best racing sims out there.

Thanks for your reply. Real Racing 2's physics "look" real but they are clever scripted actions. Ever notice how 90% of impact will spin your car backwards ALL THE TIME? I think your choices are very good too.

The truth is that iOS gaming is not on par with console gaming.

People compared to a PS Vita or a 3DS these games...

-FIFA 13
-NFS MW
-N.O.V.A. 3
-Bastion

I can't agree with you at all, IOS gaming is on par with console gaming if I say.
some people always say IOS gaming is not good compared to console gaming but they always use the weakness of ios to compare the advantage of the console game, it's illogical.
the only thing is ios lack of original games from big companys, but it means nothing. Big company does not means great quality, I can name so many ios-oriented games not worse than their gaming console counterpart.

You have the logistics of space and content for one, it doesn't equate to the fun that can be had though either. Just saying. That won't change until Apple get up to speed on disk space.

Bladeslinger is fairly impressive graphically but a tad short on content, the IAP model is a bit in your face but you can side step it with Second Wind. For some reason Depth of Field was off by default in the options, turned it on and takes those combat scenes to a whole other level.

It all depends on what you're talking about, specifically. Two games mentioned here so far are Dead Space and Mass Effect: Infiltrator, both of which are absolutely nowhere near as lengthy, detailed, complex or impressive as their console counterparts. They're considered "console quality" by some, yet they're still a long way off being the same experience.
