Best looking or best given the technical limitations of the iPhone?

I honestly think most of the 3D games look like crap. Blimp is beautiful, Real Racing is awkward. Games like JCS and Snail Mail are the exception, but JCS is pretty simple regarding colors and polygons, and Snail Mail is cel-shaded.

I agree, most 3D games fail at looking adequate on the iPhone, technically impressive yes, but they're still no better than the graphics we were getting over a decade ago.

Some of the nicest looking games I've played recently are Labyrinth 2 (the UI deserves a prize all on it's own), Beat It!, Orbital and Ramp Champ. Also Rolando 2... it looked pretty good for a 2.5D game.

Oh, and Canabalt for beauty in simplicity.
