MC is the best of the three but personally I'd recommend skipping them all for now cause there's stuff I like way more out there.

Gangstar if you like sandbox type games
MC: Sandstorm if you like FPS
Blades of Fury if you like arcade fighting

I have all 3 but I haven't tried Blades of Fury yet
MC: Sandstorm is my fav right now though.

well, that depends on your personal preference;
would you prefer a GTA type of game, a COD4 type of game, or a soul caliber type of game?

thats the problem, those are my three favorite types of games haha. Which one would you say most accurately represents the console version(s)? And to the first poster, and anyone i guess haha, does MC sandstorm feel like sandbox ish (sort of like cod 4) or is it more like an on rails shooter?

The two posts above me seems a bit redundant

okay so ganster is a gta clone but really scaled down and and a bit more boring as after finishing the missions it gets dull

MC is like Cod4 but just the like the single player but not as epic but if you have online capabilities then I'd go with this as it will last longer in the end

While blades is fun, I think it will soon go away after finishing everything but that depends if you really enjoy these type of games

You can't compare them against each other cause they are separate games. They are pretty much among the best broad action games on the device. Honestly at some point you should get all three.

We know that and I think that he may know that but he can only buy one game now and yes everything is comparable if you think about it.

MC: Sandstorm isn't on-rails in the traditional sense, but your path in very forced through the game. As far as I have gotten (quite far), you don't really get much freedom to move around the environment at your discretion. However, despite the limitations, its a great FPS. The controls are pretty perfect, and graphics are stunning for an iPhone game.

Gangstar is, in my opinion, good but not great. I'd wait for GTA:CW. There are tons of limitations and overall there isn't much to do beyond a story. Its not a bad game, and having an open-world environment on the iPhone is impressive, but overall it suffers from some easily solvable issues. Driving controls are touchy.

Blades of Fury is the game that best represents the cloned game, Soul Calibur. The controls are spot-on and there is a decent amount of depth to the gameplay. As a plus, the graphics are detailed and beautiful. This said, make sure you like this genre before spending $6.99 on it.

I will leave the final decision up to you, but as a sidenote remember Hybrid is coming very soon, which is fan-freaking-tastic. Also, tomorrow is the event... nudge nudge wink wink say no more say no more.
