    The first iPhone game to make use of the Unreal Engine 3 gaming engine, Infinity Blade features stunningly-rich graphics, outstanding animations, robust music, intuitive controls, and some of the most exciting action we've experienced on our mobile device.

    Infinity Blade is a turning point for iOS gaming. Epic has proven that Apple's popular mobile devices are capable of much more than what we've previously seen, and since they're now licensing their engine out for other developers to use, we're going to start seeing a lot of other games with with Infinity Blade's level of polish.

    Delivers in spades. It reminds me of a more constrained Shadow of the Colossus, which is quite the compliment. For anyone who owns a 3rd or 4th generation iOS device this is an essential purchase.

    An expert slice of role-playing goodness, with impressive depth and a novel control system.

    Infinity Blade is but a series of endless duels in the same environments. Once you figure that out, it does undermine its promise, but even though the battles can get repetitive, the combat system is deep enough to enjoy. It's a good game, because it was designed for nomadic use, and with this low pricepoint, it's exactly what iOS users could be asking for.

    No matter how much the games dresses things up, the endless battles get repetitive after a while. You're performing the exact same moves throughout the game.

For true gamers out there that want to play REAL games on the go, this is perfect. The gameplay doesn't get stale because it just keeps getting harder and the expansion is a really nice transition into the seconds game. A must buy mobile game for true gamers. Expand

It has STUNNING visuals and while the gameplay can get old after a while, unlocking that next weapon always feels great. There is a ton of replay value and once you beat the main quest you can keep playing and do other things in different areas. Overall an amazing game and DEFINITELY worth buying. 10/10 Expand

It's easy to pick up and play, offers plenty of replayability because of the high priced weapons and arena combat, and has pretty slick multiplayer. The graphics are only outmatched by the upcoming sequel, Infinity Blade 2. Expand

    Great visuals, fair storyline. The gameplay is good and polished, but the prices of the items are quite high. That's wouldn't be a problem ifGreat visuals, fair storyline. The gameplay is good and polished, but the prices of the items are quite high. That's wouldn't be a problem if the game would have been longer. But it's very short. Forcing the player to play over and over again the same thing. Apart from the secret content, there isn't much else you can do. That said, the game itself is still very fun and even short for a game in general, it's pretty long for a IOS game. Expand
