Best most polished shooters available.

I have just picked up Geo Geo wars which I realy enjoy. The controls and graphics are great and it uses openfeint which is a bonus. I also played the lite version of Cell War and have mixed feelings, it does seem like a good game but as much as I find the controls descent, I wish there was an option for touch controls and I like a game that has a really nice global high scores list. (openfeint or similar or just something really crisp and nicely laid out)


What is youe favorite shooter out there keeping in mind graphics, global high scores, great control, and just overall polish.

It's funny, I was JUST playing Cell War lite, and saying the same thing to myself. That the graphics and animations are just shy of being great.

As far as the best, I think it's Meteor Blitz.

I played the game and did not pick it up when it was on sale for .99. maybe I need to give it another look but I prefer touch controls over virtual pads. I really enjoy the graphics and control of geogeo wars, go me thinking about shooters again.

My favorites are:

Meteor Blitz
GeoFighter
Isotope
Nano Fighter
Space Invaders Infinity Gene

iDodge: Space Ninja is awesome as well, but there is no shooting involved, so it's not really a shooter Still recommend it though.

Meteor Blitz, it's incredibly polished and a lot of fun. It's also perfect for pick up and play gameplay because of it's almost instant start and save mechanic.
