I just finished this game on the iphone last night. Pretty good, though I wouldn't play through it again...once is enough for me, but good while it lasts.

Has anyone played this and Dungeon Hunter on the iPad. I really liked the control and game style of DH and this seems similar. Is it?

If anyone has this, can they comment on framerate? I'm wondering about this in general, the 3GS has a much lower res screen to push pixels around on.

I picked it up and the framerate seems inconsistent. Parts will be smooth and others stutter, especially cut scenes.

Not bad, but not silky smooth. The other issue I have is with the machine gun fire, the sound seems to cut off or not actually make any at times.

As much as i love gameloft games, it is becoming a problem for me that their games are not universal. I have an iphone and ipad now. I will hold off purchasing this game for sure. It doesn't make sense for me if it doesn't work on my iphone which is the device that is in my pocket all the time...

If this had been universal, i would've brought it in a heartbeat.
