Veggie Samurai vs. Fruit Ninja

OK, this thread was bound to happen at some point or another.
Which of the two apps is the bestest, and why?
I'm thinking strictly in terms of iPhone, i.e not the iPad versions.

EDIT: OK, the awful, blatant, filthy unprofessional rip-off aside, which is best?

Yes your sarcasm detector may have triggered, but don't worry, it's OK.

Veggie Samurai is a complete and utter rip-off of Fruit Ninja. If i were Fruit Ninja's developers I would have at least put a Patient on the game. (If it's not already there). This could avoid dumb-asses from stealing the crowd and overall the idea.

Fruit Ninja, the only thing that makes Veggie Samurai better is the dicing feature. Veggie Samurai doesn't even have splatter effects!

I'm what you could call a "casual" mobile gamer.

Veggie Samurai. Much slower with a focus on multiple combos. You guys need to take your heads out your *** and quit getting mad they ripped off Fruit Ninja. Yeh I like FN and the dev but does mean VS sucks.

I understand what you mean but look at it this way;

Fruit Ninja is currently one of the most popular games in the AppStore. So Popular that it's ranked #7 in the United States. (Out of ALL Apps).

(this is partly hypothetical)

Now lets say your a developer and you want to be up there with the big boys. Your other applications have failed at bringing in any money and you can't afford to promote.

Veggie Samurai's Developers were probably in that kind of situation and decided to copy off someone else's success.

That's not cool. It's just being greedy and shows that you have no originality and what's worse? They only changed it a bit.
