I'm sick of..

Buying .99-1.99 game that just aren't full games. I bought Doom and what not when they were on sale and they are great! I have about 8 bucks left and am going to buy a 5-8 dollar app for once (trust me, I hardly spend this much on 1 app) but I am stuck. I know most people will say Gangstar will give me the most bang for my buck, but what other "pricey" apps are worth condsideration?

Thanks !

Just my luck, including tax, Gangstar is about .32 above my budget..*sigh*
So now I'm looking at mainly the 4.99 games, but with so many like NFSU, Assassin Creed, Touchgrind, I could really use some other peoples opinions

I'd say only buy Gangstar if you don't own any of the 3D GTA games. It's not a bad game at all, but if you own one of those you've already got the best available. There's more unique stuff to be found on the App Store.

Touchgrind is awesome but hard... they never quite nailed the navigation. It's rare I ever actually line up with a ramp or rail and when I do it's total luck and by the time I notice I've rolled into it anyway. It's a great idea and it's fun to mess about with, but getting the highest scores seems to involve just spamming a few useful tactics rather than enjoying some freeform skate/finger-boarding.

Yeah, Ima have to wait for Gangstar it seems, maybe while I'm waiting, it will drop a buck

If only it selled terribly like NFL10, then maybe we could see a 3 dollar drop

I honestly think Assassin's Creed is fantastic. One of my top 5 games in the app store. And it's LONG. Lots of story, lots of fun, mild puzzle elements, hack and slash action. Some people got a bit frustrated with the controls, but I looked at it as part of the game...you're an assassin, you're climbing walls, balancing on skinny beams, jumping on ropes, wielding grapling hooks...it's supposed to be difficult! I'd hop on this one definitely...bought it at 10, and don't regret it a bit.
