Going on a trip, which game should I get?

I'm going to be on a 3 hour drive and I wanted to buy a new game to keep me busy. I was thinking of either Ravensword, Asphalt 5, or Call of Duty: Zombies. Which one would you recomend. I'm leaning towards Ravensword because it seems like its the perfect type of game you can play for long periods of time. But, I really want Cod: Zombies for those "whenever" moments. Your suggestions?

Either Ravensword or Zombies. I can't get enough of Zombies, but it's a battery killer. If you're planning on getting that one, make sure you have a way to charge. It's really really awesome though. Ravensword is really cool too, but I seem to be getting lost. Alot. I'm enjoying it alot though. I can't say anything about Asphalt as I havn't played it yet, but it seems good. Depends on what kind of game you like more, action rpg/adventure or survival fps.

And Zombies is great for long-time gaming too. It just doesn't get old. There's always new ways of surviving and the random box keeps things different.

Well, personally I'd go for Ravensword (on your list) since it has the best longevity of the three. Asphalt 5 is fun (especially the online multi) but the elimination matches which are forced upon you are broken so its a little hard to recommend for a car ride. CoD: Zombies is also amazing for online multi, but offline it will get pretty repetitive.

Basically, from your list go for Ravensword.

1. Ravensword
2. Asphalt 5
3. CoD (Don't have this actually)

Ravensword doesn't have online connectivity, and lasts for a long time.
Asphalt 5 is also fun, but might not last as long, and might get you dizzy or nauseous in the car.
CoD mostly has multiplayer as its pride, but it's only over WiFi, which you wouldn't have in the car, and it's the most expensive game of the bunch.

If you are going to be without internet, COD: Zombies isn't going to be much good as the highlight of the game is online multiplayer (I don't know if it works through 3G though).
Ravensword would probably be the best game to get for a 3 hour car drive.
Nice lengthy singleplayer and plenty of varied gameplay.
Asphalt 5 is also good but may get a bit repetitive. Online multiplayer is good but again you probably won't be able to use it.
So yeah, get Ravensword for the journey.
But definately get COD: Zombies as well for when you are at home/with an internet connection.

out of your choices i'd say Zombies, Ravensword, Asphalt 5. (i own Zombies and ravensword)

but the reason I'd say zombies over ravensword is because i'm assuming you will be playing this game even after your trip. Ravensword has an awesome storyline and stuff but Zombies has unlimited replay value.

otherwise,
i'd say look for some good cheap priced games (under $3), cause that way you could get multiple long lasting, unlimited replay type games for your trip and you won't be spending as much. I can't think of any now (maybe other TA members could help), but something like Mini Squadron or Jet Car Stunts.

14 in 1

I'd get 14-in-1, a game pack that has a whole mess of popular games. I think it's 99 cents atm too. That'd keep you busy.

ps. they are real games, that you can buy separately, they are just bundled up.

My vote is for RavenSword it's a great game....and if you get lost in the game... to think that a game that runs on a iphone/ipod is big enough to do that....WoW

Now PLaying:RavenSword,DOOM Classic,Doom Resurrection,Dungeon hunter and Wolfenstein.
