    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.

    But if you look past the pretty fluff and the shiny-ness of your new toy, you'll find that Infinity Blade is really just the same thing over and over again. BUT, that same thing over and over again is oddly appealing… somewhat like the "same thing over and over again" mechanism of Fruit Ninja, Flight Control, etc. And for that reason, there's really no other rating for this than the Must Have.

    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.

    Thankfully, Infinity Blade doesn't rest on its good looks. Sure, it's not a massive, open-world, but instead a tightly guided series of intense battles coupled with some seriously addictive character progression.

    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.

    Incredible, stunning, mouth-watering graphics. And a decent game underneath!

    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.

    The first IOS game I actually considered worth buying. 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

    This truly is an innovative iOS game! 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

    This game is awesome. 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

    Only complaint I have is it's repetitive narrative structure. But everything else about this game is fantastic. Props to ChAIR and Epic Games for making a gorgeous looking game for the iOS platform. Expand

    This game is epic and great. It is with beautiful visuals, and with a great gameplay. There you only can play single player, which is wonderful, but disappointingly short. Still, it is the best RPG game of the iPhone/iPad . You can equip armor, weapons and shield. Another disappointment is that sometimes It's repetitive, and if you replay the single player again, the attack moves of the enemies begin to be so predictable. But, It is worth, and fun!

    From scratch the game is impressive but I quickly found it pretty boring ... except that pushing a little bit further I amazingly found myself completely caught and frenetically touching my screen, making the entourage wondering about my mental health! A must try! :) Expand
