A little late to the all out price slashing fiesta we saw last week, EA has since dropped the prices on a few of their games this afternoon.
Need For Speed Undercover, $6.99 -> $4.99 - A mission-based racing game that had an insanely long development cycle that produced a game that was well worth waiting for. While Need For Speed Undercover runs great on previous-generation devices, it's on the short list of games you really should have if you want to stretch the graphical legs of your iPhone 3GS. At the higher framerate, the sensation of speed is even better. We enjoyed the game in our review, and along with Real Racing [App Store], Need For Speed is still one of the best full 3D racing games on the App Store.
Wolfenstein RPG, $4.99 -> $2.99 - Originally produced by Id Software, ported to the iPhone by Firemint, and published to the App Store by EA, Wolfenstein RPG is a high-resolution adaptation of a J2ME game. The game puts a silly spin on the Wolfenstein universe and provides slow-paced turn-based combat originally designed for the user input constraints of a typical cell phone. Firemint did a wonderful job on the port, and as I mentioned in our review, as long as you're not expecting a fast paced shooter, it's a good time.

The Sims 3, $9.99 -> $6.99 - The latest mobile iteration of the Sims dynasty of video games, The Sims 3 is a fun, albeit watered down version of the original. Build mode is lacking in the iPhone version, so you are really limited in how much you can customize your house. Regardless, as we said in our review, if your favorite things about Sims games was cultivating relationships with other Sims, the iPhone game is great. If you liked tweaking your house and building Sim torture chambers, the iPhone game doesn't have much to offer.
