Dangerous $4.99 > $0.99!



I've had this one on my AppShopper wishlist for a while, got a notification this morning of a price drop. This one any good?

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Gah! I was hoping you were going to tell me if it was worth considering!

Impressions have been a bit scattered (I know, right? That never happens.), with some declaring it the best game ever and some, well, not so much...

DBC

I give up.

I bought this game a couple of months ago and I deleted it after 15 minutes. On my 3GS the game had some serious performance issues, especially with explosions (fps dropped down to a total slideshow). Iím buying the iPhone 5 in a week or two, so I will finally play the game. From what Iíve read on the internet itís a great, deep game but a bit rough around the edges in some areas. The UI is cramped so Iím guessing it is more enjoyable on a bigger screen.

Should play the HD version with improved models/textures instead if you are going to play it on an iPhone 5 =p Even though it means you will have to double dip.

Naah, the HD version is 5 bucks, plus I'm a gameplay-over-graphics gamer anyway so I'll stick with the standard version Maybe if the game would turn out to be really, really good I could go for the HD version just to support the devs.

Ahh too bad the hd version isn't on sale, otherwise I would have bought it like all the huge apps I bought this week.

The last update added iAds and IAP. The IAP looks ok, but does anyone know how intrusive the ads are?

I still have Galaxy on Fie 1&2 as well as other similar games.

That was the one red light that I had against it. For a free game, I can accept ads. But in a paid game it better be very unobtrusive.

I've looked at grabbing this a few times, the iAds thing is a definite put off though so haven't bothered. It's a shame because it actually looks like it could be alright, but with ads I'm not even willing to get it on sale unfortunately.
