Games for iPhone 6/Metal compatible

so my 'will take 4 weeks to deliver' Christmas present turned up tis morning (2 days after ordering it). Now I have a shiner new iPhone 6 to load up with a ridiculous amount of games, I got the 64 gb one!

Does anyone have any recommendations for games that look good on the 6? I have been on a 4S/iPad Mini 1st gen, so this is quite a big upgrade for me

Games I am already thinking of;

- modern combat 5 (already own it so no brainier)
- vain glory
- bioshock (is it worth it??)

Any others I may have missed out on recently?

bioshock: have you played it before on pc? if so then save the money until they put "real" optimization for iphone 6/6plus and no, there is no metal support for this. you can check out my walkthrough gameplay of bioshock ios here before you decide to make the purchase:


i didnt see any significant boost in graphics on metal just yet. just give developers some time then im quite sure they can optimise it. but some of them are quite worth to check:
- asphalt 8:

- beach buggy racing:

- battle supremacy:

- reckless racing 3:

Beta Testing : Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities, Sky Force 2014, Rush Rally 2

Thanks for the suggestions.

I haven't played bioshock on the PC, maybe I'll hold out and try some of the other suggestions.

I normally play them for about 2 weeks. Worth a go though thanks
