Is anyone out there playing games on their iPad? I finally bought a couple of bigger games, Tiger Woods 2012, a couple of FPSs, and a driving game. Before that I mostly stuck with lighter games (Angry Birds, cribbage, etc) that were free. The games are downloading now so I haven't tried them.
Is there a good way to search? I wanted an air combat game but couldn't really so anything but search for "air" and "flight" which gave me a lot of misses. They don't really have category browsing. I did a search for "retro" and found an Atari game center and Midway game center. The games are usually $0.99 to $6.99.
The comments sections have two basic gripes: game crashes and paid upgrades. Updates seem to be hit and miss, sometimes causing more crashes than they fix. The upgrades are what bugs me. They seem to get you in at a low price but then constantly try to get you to buy more items to make the game complete. In some ways it's good since you won't really care deleting a game that was free or $0.99, other ways you realize that you really don't know what a game is like unless you constantly keep purchasing additions. It feels like getting nickled and dimed to death. I'd rather just know everything the game does, download a demo, and decide to purchase a full version for the full price if I want to, not buy rockets, then buy bombers, then buy turbos, then buy yadda yadda yadda...
There's also a ton of junk to sort through so even if it's only a dollar or two you feel like you're spending money by randomly throwing darts at a board. Who knows if there are 10 better editions of what you're looking for.
