Kroll and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed are two of the latest price drops found on our New Games and Price Drop list. While we didn’t love either title due to limited gameplay, both had very good production values and represent some of the most visually appealing titles on the iPhone.
The lower prices help swing the cost to value ratio towards a better direction. Here are excerpts from our original reviews which both cited their pricing as the main sticking point against their recommendation.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed ($9.99 -> $7.99) – Our review – “While die hard Star Wars fans will enjoy the ambiance of this title and even enjoy the actual gameplay despite the limited control options, the short game-play time, limited replay-ability and frustratingly un-skippable cut scenes make it difficult to recommend this title at its $9.99 asking price."
Kroll ($7.99 -> $4.99) – Our review – “Kroll is perhaps one of the most visually impressive games available for the iPhone. But as a total package, its simplistic gameplay and short play time prevent us from recommending this title at its $7.99 asking price."
