Best Virtual Controls?

Just about everyone considers the lack of physical sticks and buttons to be the iPhone's biggest flaw. However, some games seem to get a free pass nd have controls that work great.

What game has the best Virtual Controls on the iPhone?

Minisquadron has some awesome virtual controls. The majority of Gameloft's titles also sport some very nice virtual controls.

The virtual joystick is horrible. Virtual D-pads work way better (Zenonia). There are some games that do the joystick right like Mini Squadron but that's not saying much.

I agree, MiniSquadron has some of the best controls I've tried yet for an App Store game. I really enjoy the controls in Meteor Blitz as well.

I think he's talking about stuff like virtual joysticks, in which case only NOVA counts

It's sickening how fantastic these controls work.
