@TinyKitty: Definitely get it. I'll go as far as to say it's the BEST game of it's kind. No other game compares. It has the best soundtrack, best depth, best storyline, best art (now even better) and best gameplay out of all in the genre. Only issues you may have are with difficulty. It has a steep curve at the beginning but you'll get the hang of it after a few hours while enjoying yourself. Let us know what you think!


The update is gorgeous! Though the impact is harder to see on the iphone/ipod since its much smaller. However if you screen cap it you can easily see the changes. So in a way I didn't notice it too much until having the old and new side by side. Everything also runs very smoothly (not sure if that's different than the last version since I had no problem with that one). Here are some screen shots! I made sure to take screen caps before I updated. Worth the update! It looks like even the backgrounds are improved as well.

Seems like they just throw some kind of filter. Not like they redrawn the graphics.

Well if you played or bought this before you will definitely notice a very big change in graphics..But the most important aspect of the update was the UI change..It's very touch friendly now which is a game changer and made the gameplay smother than before..

Characters at 200% zoom before the update (old photo found on the net, 'cause I just deleted my old version, but that's pretty much what they looked like when I compared them on my actual device):

They've definitely been redrawn with additional detail; they haven't simply had a filter applied to them. Look at the hair of the character on the first column, second row of Lawliet's screenshots, for example, or the main character's sleeves in my screenshots.

My final thought..TA needs/must cover this update..It's a game changer...

It's a five star port now..I've been playing non-stop...

Can anyone with the update confirm weather or not this update addresses the crashing issue?

Well I've been playing for about 3-4 hours now and I haven't got any issues..But I think appletini has a better answer for you on the iPad thread..

Thanks! I got a little too excited and ended up posting on pretty much every thread available. My bad. It's kind of my favorite game of all time and I have been waiting for them to fix this before buying! It's. About. To go. Down.
