Why does the app store always show it like this down the left. Not everyone actually looks for further requirements within the other text. Tempted to pick up to see what my Ipad 2 can do........................not sure.
It seems this is only for the ipad2 & iphone4s cause it does say universal HD & thats not for 3gs or ipod touch 4 or iphone 4

Can't wait to play it on the iPad 2. But I'm definitely waiting for a price drop...paid $10 when the non-HD version came out, not gonna pay another $10 for better graphics, plus it sucks I have to start all over again

If you bought Valkyrie SD maybe you might think again as I did, since they announced the Valkyrie HD to be free for those who bought and installed Valkyrie SD on their iPad 2s. But, everyone does their way.

So what do you like the most so far? I like the EMP effect. I find it very cool!

So glad I was able to grab this before they got a chance to pull it. I don't think I could stand waiting2 more days knowing I missed it. It does have a lot and I mean a lot of crawling jaggies, makes it look considerably worse than screenshots in motion. Only played a few minutes, but really it is kind of jarring when coming from pc games with anti-aliasing, I was under the impression the ipad2 would be powerful enough to do anti-aliasing, but I guess not.

Yep, loads of iPad 2 (and 4th Gen iPhone and iPods for that matter) do indeed boast anti-aliasing. The best of which, in my humble opinion is Real Racing 2. Then again, almost a full year later, Infinity Blade still amazes me every time I go back to it.

What with this, Scribblenaught, and Super Crossfire already bought, and Espgaluda II later tonight (82mins and counting..) it's a rather expensive Big Wednesday, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Got it today using ipad2. I concur it looks nice,but like others said, it appears to have anti-aliasing disabled as distant polygons tend to have jaggies and flicker a bit.

Other than that, it looks amazing.....
