Wondering which games to buy for your iPad? Well, we’ve taken our best shot at putting together a list of top titles that we feel meet the criteria for a good iPad game.
And just what does make a good iPad game? We debated it for a while and narrowed it down to these five factors:
It’s gotta be fun (obviously).
Ergonomics (are the gameplay and control scheme well-suited to the iPad?)
Uniqueness (though many iPad games play well as upconverted, higher-resolution versions of their iPhone predecessors, we respect new, iPad-exclusive games).
Value (some of the best iPad games currently carry high price tags, but we also tried to include titles we thought were simply a good value).
Show-off quotient (extra points if the game flat-out looks good).
