Top 'Console Quality' iDevice Games

What iDevice games do you feel are actually 'game console quality' and compete with the top DS/PSP offerings?

The things to take into consideration are: Quality, Depth, and would you pay a console title retail price for the game ($20-$35)

Here's a short list of games that I currently have on my iphone that I feel truly compete with the best of my DS/PSP games.j

Drop7 (maybe)
Peggle
Sword&Poker
Puzzle Quest
The Quest
GTA Chinatown Wars
Battle for Wesnoth
Hook Champ (maybe)
Skies of Glory
Jet Car Stunts
Real Racing

I'd love to hear others opinions on this!

I'd say Street Fighter IV and GTA Chinatown Wars. Top-notch production values that I have yet to see surpassed.

street fighter 4(iPod/iPhone version) isn't actually big enough to be a 'console game'

The only game that fits that description is GTA CTW, the others not so much.

I agree that there aren't many that would make this list - but I strongly disagree that GTA is the only console quality idevice game.

Of course GTA is one of the highest rated handheld games ever - so it's doesn't make much sense to make it the benchmark to judge all other games by.

*rolls eyes*

here are go again with the DS/PSP nonsense.

GTA:CTW is the ONLY modern console quality titles on the iPhone. The rest of the "good" games on the iPhone would be average or bad on the DS/PSP.

Currently Playing: Plants vs. Zombies, The War of Eustrath, Zenonia 1, Phoenix Wright, The Quest

NanoMechs, look at the graphics and gameplay and it's pretty hard to believe someone got that working on the iDevice platform.
