Infinity Blade out for iOS – unreal graphics, Epic win
The game uses the OpenGL ES 2.0 API, which means that only the Apple iPhone 3GS or later (iPod touch 3rd gen or later), will be supported. Android users, would unfortunately have to wait to get that kind of graphics, but good news is they will not have wait too long. And now that we have cleared the basic requirements, the most important question remains: is the gameplay there to keep you into Infinity Blade for an infinite amount of time? About this, we are not so sure.
We will not tease you with the storyline, but needless to say there is one and it falls in the common avenge-for-someone lines. So check out the trailer video before you dish out your dollar to Epic, but if you ask is it an Epic win or an Epic fail – we would definitely go with a win.

I'm speechless. Utterly. The graphics are on par with xbox360! And with the retina display showing it off in HiDEF it's truly breathtaking. Graphics are, with no argument, unmatched by anything on a mobile platform. Not by RAGE HD (which has amazing graphics but the really stunning parts are just hi res video and not real time rendering like this), not by anything on android or wp7 or any other iOS game. Not even by any PSP Game, not even kingdom hearts: rebirth by sleep, the in-game visuals(not rendered cutscenes) still don't match infinity blade. As far as story goes it's run of the mill, and although by cell phone game standards the game isn't really that short, but it's a short game for hardcore players. Gameplay is absolutely superb. This is why iPhone, and iOS in general is the king of mobile phone gaming.

graphics are on park with xbox 360 when they're on a three inch screen? you wanna rethink that one...

I bet you never have a Xbox360 ... man how the hell u can make a extremely bias judgement like that ...
For portable gaming, this game is just average...
One can clearly see that in order to improve the graphic look, they reduce the fps
It's even worse than PSP, if you play "God of War" or "Final Fantasy VII" on PSP you will have to think again ...

its supposed to run in 30 FPS according to what I've heard, cant say this is true, and the graphics blow away PSP, this looks like Oblivion on 360, not the best looking but for mobile gaming its the current best easily.
