i reakon wait for nova (it will probably cost the same as ravensword when it comes out, all the good gameloft games have cost that much so far) and get modern combat and nova, but cod zombies is also awesome, depends if you want a campaign and death match or co op zombie killing

I would say Ravensword and CoD:Zombies. Ravensword is a way deeper experience than Modern Combat (though it's not really an RPG), and you CAN get all the intensity you'd ever need from CoD. (I know that you're going by cost, but that's how I would pair things up).

Frankly, I'm one of the UPnP victims, so it's not a good day to ask me about MC:S.

-MC:S I heard has had some major online connectivity issues.
-Ravensword is really cool..lacking content at the moment, but with an update coming & the devs working on an expansion..well..
-COD is freaking awesome its a lot of fun, but also has some connectivity issues [still very playable though]

Get Modern Combat + Ravensword.

Why pay $9.99 for one map at littel replay value (It gets real boring if you're too good at the game), when you can have two lengthy and fun games for close to the same price.

Playing: RavenSword: The Fallen King, Zenonia and Doom Classic.
Waiting For: Dead Strike. Vampire Origins.
Plus+: Kerrby
GameLoft Live: Kerrby

lets compare, pros and cons of each

Nazi Zombies has better:

Graphics about same, except Nazis is more violent! YEAH!
Tilt controls
Replayability
Online Multiplayer
Cool weapons
"Best games of November" from toucharcade


MC Sandstorm has better:

Graphics about the same, but MC's enemy textures are better.
Touch-screen controls
More levels
Campaign
More difficulties
More multiplayer options, except multiplayer has glitches now
More different enemies

I don't have Ravensword. But overall, i liked Nazi Zombies better, but just a smidge. They have new maps and such coming out too. In all...

Nazi Zombies: For those who like blowing the heads off of undead mean Nazis with a pump-action shotgun or roasting them with a flamethrower to a bloody death.

MCS: For those who dream of being in the army and assassinating tons of weak little terrorists with all your super American military gear with rifles, grenades, and all that cool stuff, all in diverse, huge environments.

well ravensword is apparently missing content, MC has multiplayer TDM but I cant log on, altho I think that gameloft made a way better engine than the Quake 3 one used by eliminate (i dislike quake engines, feels like your on roller skates) ... COD seems awesome but I hear alot of complaints about the fact that its only one map?

I own all but COD, and Im holding off on COD for now... seems like its missing the most content out of the bunch

Ravensword isn't really missing content -- it's just not a full RPG as some people expected (even though the app description and all the previews made it clear that it wasn't). CoD:Zombies isn't missing content either: that one map has yielded hours of entertainment for me. Probably the best online gaming experience on the platform.
