Top Five iPad Games

The App store offers a huge collection of games, these games all cost far less than a new game for a console or handheld console and many of them are of a very high standard. When people think of gaming on an iPad they often think of Angry Birds. Angry Birds is undeniably fun but I'm tired of seeing "Best iPad Games" lists with games such as Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja in them. They are good causal games but the iPad has more to offer and I feel as if many games are overlooked. So, here is my "Best iPad Games" list.


Although its not an original title it is by far the best game on the iPad. Add what is simply a great game, with great controls and a lot of content to your already healthy dose of nostalgia and you get the best game on the iPad. The controls are easy and responsive with plenty of options to customise them and the level design and gameplay are as classic as ever. They don't make shooters like this anymore and thats a real shame.

Backstab mixes gunfights with swordplay, horse riding, an open world and plenty of Assassins's Creed style acrobatics. The result is a superb game that has high production values and is extremely enjoyable. Add to this the good graphics and voice acting and you have a truly great game, one that any gamer should try.

Modern Combat 3

To sum it up quickly it is effectively Call of Duty on the iPad and it's great. The single player is every bit as stale as the ones found in Call of Duty but is still enjoyable enough in small doses. It's the multiplayer where the game really shines. It supports up to 12 players and has a variety of game modes and maps and it is incredible fun. Though the controls can take some getting used to they are pretty responsive and there are definitely much worse controls on the iPad.

Infinity Blade 2

I'm not a huge fan of fighting games such as this but It's hard not to be impressed by its graphics and it's controls. The gameplay is simple and very fun and the graphics are crisp and detailed, it's easy to see why many would recommend it and some say it's even the best game on the iPad. While I wouldn't go that far it is definitely a great iPad game.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

The game is a hark back to the original two games and it's fantastic. Its a port of the Nintendo DS game and features all of the same little innovations that that game had. It's great fun from start to finish and is a far better experience on iPad than Grand Theft Auto 3 is. If you are a fan of the Grand Theft Auto series, or open world gaming in general, then you should buy this game.

    1. There's nothing wrong with it, I just don't personally like casual games that much.

  5. Yea the iPad has lots to offer. I liked Doom and thought the controls were great - good and easy and responded well. an ex shooter game I would put it at the top of my list.
