Default Favorite Gameloft Titles

I'm going on a long trip for two weeks that will include extended stays in airports/bus stations and a lot of occasions where I will be the only english speaker so a lot of down time. I'm thinking of bringing up to four Gameloft titles with me and I'm open to suggestions. Which four would you bring on a long drawn out trip? Any you enjoyed more than others?

I'm not too crazy about FPS unless you can convince me to try it.

If you're at all interested in 9mm, do yourself a favor and go buy Max Payne. Just want to throw that out there before people start recommending 9mm.

Hmm four titles that aren't shooters? Well since I don't know what you have and haven't played, I'll throw out a half dozen or so of my favorites: (note that some might require the no sound fix)

-Spider-Man: Total Mayhem. Best beat em up on the AppStore. An all time classic.

-Dungeon Hunter 2. Crap graphics. Everything else (except mediocre combat) is brilliant.

-Starfront: Collision. One of the best RTSs on the platform, pity about the pop limit though.

-Prince of Persia. If you can handle the controls (they were fine for me, heard some people had difficulty though) then this is a great game.

-Hero of Sparta II. Fun romp, frustrating deaths. I never finished it, actually.

-Zombie Infection is a very decent, albeit with dates visuals, horror game.

-BackStab. First 3D real open world of its kind on the AppStore. Often buggy & unpolished, with jerky animations and repetitive combat. Still fun.

-Go pick up NOVA 2. Yes it's a shooter. But it has by far the best story mode of any Gameloft has put out. Excellent AI, very fun and varied weapons/enemies, good level design (very good, in fact), just a ton of fun. I can't recommend it enough.

-Don't even bother with TDKR or TASM. Batman is extremely boring (combat...ugh just one button mashing) and TASM just isn't as polished as Total Mayhem, and the open world is unnecessary. Wild Blood is decent is you like the genre.

Thanks JBRUU (how does one pronounce that? Juh-broo?)

I have played some NOVA and I frankly quite like it. Not really sure why most FPS turn me off but not that one. Thanks for the suggestions. I have all but Backstab but just really have had no time to crack them open. I think this trip will change that. Also thanks for the warnings, I was considering those as well.

Those are actually my initials with a few extra letters. So if you want to have a mental pronunciation for me besides "that guy who spends too much time on the Internet" it's just J.B.

Oh yeah, if you for some very strange reason have not play The Walking Dead, just go grab that with all the episodes. $15 for all of them I believe, and it amounts to around 10-12 hours of gameplay (roughly 2.5 hours per episode). Great for a car trip. No fiddly touch controls. Just an incredible, well acted story.

Agree with all here, except I did finish hero of Sparta 2 and it was a fun god of war clone.

I dunno Max Payne doesnt have a screen swipe option in mine so i am forced to go dual stick. I prefer 9mm's controls. Anyone else have this problem? Iphone 4.
But anyway, blades of fury is pretty fun, as Soulcalber costs alot. But beware as I am not sure if it has Iphone 5 or iOS 6 support, probably won't have or get it.
Backstab is glitch but fun.
POP is fun, I recommend it.
N.O.V.A. 2 has hackers now but back in the day the one hit kill mode was very enjoyable.
Gangstar Miami is good, Rio is immature and has a lousy story. The old school dungeon hunters (1+2) are great hack and slash.

If we're talking Asphalt 7, just go with NFS. Better in every possible way, except multiplayer.

Adventures of Tintin - surprisingly good, and ties in well with the newer movie
Asphalt - great racing games
Blokus - great family-friendly board game
Dungeon Hunter 2 - still one of the greatest action/RPG on iOS to date
Spider-Man: Total Mayhem - great beat-em-up
