    Crazy Robot is having a $.99 sale until August 5th. I beta tested this and have been a big supporter of the devs for a long time, so I won't bore you with my biased (but correct ;)) opinion. At $.99 though, this is a ridiculous bargain for anyone who loved the first game or is willing to give a rather old school FPS a chance.

    What if I didn't like the first game at all? I still remember when you were saying it was a better game than the original NOVA (Gameloft) when they came out at the same time years back. Does this do anything different from the original game for fans of modern FPS? But yes, what a killer price for such a big package.

    I still hold to that opinion, but I personally prefer old school (i.e Half Life) shooter over Halo-clones.

    That said, this is a much bigger game than the original, in some ways much more polished. The first half of the game has a City 17 vibe to it, and the design is more open and expansive. The second half feels more like Half-Life 1, with a fairly linear structure involving shooting, simple platforming, and a variety of tasks. The graphics are not going to compete with the Shadowguns and Dead Triggers, but they're not bad either (though they might come across as a generic to some folks). The controls are customizable and work well. To their credit, the devs have built a lot of variety to the gameplay, and they've put the effort to deliver a full package.

    Again, I am biased here, but for .99 it's hard to go wrong.

    Sounds good to me. Plus, there's multiplayer along with a bunch of other features included. Should be fun.

    I wished there would be a sequel to this for just about ever, and I'm thrilled it finally happened; can't wait to play it! :)

    Not really a big fan of the original, and the file size is a definite turn-off, but I still can't quite resist giving this a go for a buck.

    After few minutes playing, I think that you should be buying this NOW. The gameplay is very cool (it's not a mindless shooter), the graphics aren't like NOVA's, but they don't suck. The only think I don't like is the UI.
    I wish I could write a better review, but I'm tired :p

    Yeah outside of the extremely dedicated two person indie dev team, The Infinity Project just felt right for iOS and I loved pretty much everything (outside of the lack of control customization which I adjusted to after a while) on my iTouch 2G at the time. The sci-fi setting, storyline, graphics, free roaming environments that didn't feel linear, different enemy types, weapon diversity, being able to interact and loot so many different things, and the list went on. I always felt it was underrated but considered it a classic from the time I spent with the game.


    I could only imagine how much #2 has expanded since an cant wait to try it out. I am a little upset at the low price point, but hopefully it sells well because these Devs deserve every penny. :)

    For 99 cents, I might bite. Can't lose with the price, even tho I absolutely hated the first. Yes, I said I hated the first one. I'm hoping the free
    roam element will help me enjoy the sequel.

    They're really not that similar. Nova 3 felt like you were going from set-piece to set-piece; IP2 feels more like a game, not a "current gen console game", if that makes any sense. I think folks who are looking for a Halo/Crysis experience prefer Nova 3 (by far). Folks who appreciate old-school shooters will probably enjoy IP2 more.

    How's that for a non-answer?

    This sucked me in for about the first 20 minutes. It really does a fine job of re-creating the "feel" of the FPS circa Half-Life era. Unfortunately, once I got to experience the combat, the inadequacy of the controls (partly a device issue to be fair) really came into focus. The dumb-as-door-nails AI doesn't help. Neither do "puzzles" consisting of running around rooms looking for switches. Half an hour or so in, I really couldn't clear the 1.4 gb(!) of space this takes up on my iPad fast enough.
