626088_2Here are a few interesting sales over the past couple of days:

  • Silent Hill: The Escape ($7.99 -> $0.99) - Konami's first person shooting game set in a creepy environment has seen a massive price drop from $7.99 to $0.99. So, if you've been curious about this title, now's a good time to try it.
  • Resident Evil 4 ($7.99 -> $2.99) - The mobile edition of Resident Evil 4. There was some very split opinions between those who loved the game and those who felt it paled in comparison to the original console version. Regardless of your position, a $5 price drop certainly makes it easier to pick up.
  • Dirt Moto Racing ($4.99 -> $0.99) - A solid off-road racer that's easily worth $0.99.
  • Crash Bandicoot ($5.99 -> $2.99) - One of the original kart racers for the iPhone, it seems they are starting to feel the pressure with Konami's Krazy Kart Racing and the upcoming Shrek Kart.

And, we've heard of one major game that will be holding a sale soon. Firemint's Real Racing [App Store] will see its first sale this weekend dropping from $9.99 to $6.99 temporarily. The sale should be live by Saturday morning, so keep that in mind if you've been holding out.

    They missed it. Simply as that ;) I'm sure they will add Megaman II soon.

    Besides this Silent Hill: The Escape is one of this Games that you only play once through because it's just one of those - Get your Ass through the Labyrinth and then just please Die - Games. The Game is ten Labyrinths long if i remember it Right and is also missing one important Thing that made Silent Hill so Great: The Music from Akira Yamaoka.

    Keep that in Mind if you are going to buy it - i have bought it for 99c and it was Ok.

    Crash Bandicoot is not worth the Money if you are going to buy Konami's Krazy Kart Racing and the upcoming Shrek Kart too. Better save the Money for one of those Games since Crash Bandicoot isn't really worth the current Money it's sold for. 99c would be Ok but $2.99 is to much for it Nowadays.

    Resident Evil 4 is one of those Games that you eighter Hate or Love because of it's Controlsystem. Megaman II is OK if you like the Franchise.

    I bought Dirt Moto Racing and will give it today a try :)

    Megaman II plays a bit slow compared to the NES emulator on DS. Was the original one slow as well or is the iPhone version just made slower so it's easier?

    I love RE:D and will buy RE4 now. I think the control is fine, it adds to the atmosphere of the play as a survival horror. If you want action, then get DOOM, Terminator Salvation, Modern Combat or even Wolfenstein 3D.

    No, Touch Arcade is exactly what I want. It gives me several very short articles so I can see what's on sale and what's new and what's actually worth buying.

    Real Racing... that seems like an interesting sale. They're still positioning themselves as a premium game. IDK, I'd really have to have a lite version to play before I'd be willing to buy. I've already got so many racing games on my iPhone, and I hated them all. They're just not fun... none of them give me that adrenaline rush that Rush and F-Zero give me.

    Maybe if they released a lite version with two tracks... their easiest one and one of the more medium-difficult tracks (if they just supply the easiest track, I won't be sure if it ramps up enough,) with two cars to choose from.

    Oh what the hell, I'll buy it durning the sale.

    Sweet! I had both Resident Evil 4 and Silent Hill on my Watch List in BargainBin for $4.99 & $2.99 respectively so at $2.99 & $0.99 this purchase choice was easy! :) Capcom couldn't pay me $2.99 to download their crap port of Mega Man II.

    noooo don't do it firemint, I bought it the other week =(

    Nevermind, worth every penny!

    Real Racing at $6.99 or wait for Asphalt 5? Hmmm... Does Real Racing support multi-player via Bluetooth (with OS 3.0) yet or just over local Wi-Fi?

    @munkee: Megaman II was definitly slowed Down if you compare the different Version with the iPhone Version. I don't know :(

    @Rickard: Sad to hear that; 2 ā‚¬/2 Krone/... or whatever it does cost in the Sweden Store is really hard to judge if it's worth the Game since the Game could be played through in less then 2 -3 hours if you keep Playing straight through it.

    Besides the missing Music from Akira Yamaoka and the Playtime, it was a Game that definitly couldn't keep up with my High Expectations i had the first Time when i heard that Konami will do a Silent Hill Game for the iPhone.

    Maybe in the following Years Konami will give us a Game that is worth the Silent Hill Brand. The current Game isn't it.

    @EatKodosDaily: Trust me if i tell you that "Real Racing" is right now one of the best Car Racing Games on the iPhone. But... if you are looking for an F-Zero, Extreme-G,.. Clone or a Game that is giving you a similar Speed like the Mentioned then you should maybe wait till Firemint or someother Developer release their first Game that is taking full Potential from the Power of the iPhone 3GS.

    Don't get me Wrong, "Real Racing" is really getting currently the most out of the iPhone Device but they already showed also what the iPhone 3GS is capable of and i have the Feeling that the iPhone 3GS or the next iPhone Version might be exactly what you are waiting for. Besides this Real Racing is give you really much for your Money so there is absolutly "no" Reason for not buying it during the Sale.

    Trust me I purchased Real Racing when it was $9.99 & I'm not bitter, it is worth every penny. By far the best racing game for the iphone to date bar none. If you enjoy racing games with out having to worry about pit stops & taking on damage from collisions trust me you will be happy with your investment.
