I love Dead Space, the mobile version is a great tie in to Dead Space 2. Can't wait for the 3rd one on Feb 5th.

Agree. Got Dead Space bundled with the Xperia Play. Didn't know it cost that much.

Victor, what device(s) do you use to test/review these games?

Nothing beats playing these games in my XPERIA PLAY.. Yeah, yeah, it doesn't have top specs and it's bigger and weighs as much as the Lumia 920 but the GPU and optimizations and controls more than make up for it. You have most of the screen state (for your eyes, not your fingers) most of the time when playing because you have all the PS buttons for your hands.

Moga controller with high end phone absolutely beats it. Sorry :)

Why PA, you listened to me! And gave N.O.V.A.3 the credit it deserves :)
Aww, love you guys haha.
Btw, i just wish people on IOS weren't buying into Activitysion's crap such as COD black ops zombies instead. (Not to mention the Declassified on Vita..If that thing hits smartphones it will sell hugely even while being a complete s**t compared to Gameloft' titles )

What about Batman from Gameloft? That was a great game too.

Yep, a great game it is.
But it's more of a role playing genre.. plus it's a movie tie-in. For a franchise that just ended.
Not really a game of its own. If that made any sense :p
