I’ll admit it right here and right now: the iPad games haven’t wowed me one bit. They really haven’t. The apps seem to be the ones that have taken the spotlight, and the games are definitely slacking; most of them are just running at a higher resolution with little or no changes to the gameplay. There are some games like Mirror’s Edge that have got me saying,”Cool”, but again, nothing has wowed me until now.
And this game may just be what separates iPad gaming from iPhone gaming. Let’s face this fact: MMOs don’t work on the iPhone. Text-based are ok, but I’m talking about fully 3D MMOs, fighting with a party, leveling up your stats, and all the glory that comes with a MMORPG found on the Internet.
The MMORPGs I’ve tried on the iPhone just don’t work; I don’t want to play an MMO on my iPhone. I’m going to say this again: MMOs don’t work on the iPhone.
And I say this again: the iPad may be the answer to MMOs on Apple’s devices. Pocket Legends for iPad definitely proves that the iPad can handle much higher graphics and animations, and the screenshots alone had me wowing and my eyes popping.
But it seems like iPhone versions are coming for Pocket Legends, so we know that when you’re outside you can still level up your character. But when it comes to sitting down at home, I would definitely prefer the iPad over the iPhone. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this before, but MMOs (real ones) may just be the reason iPad gaming is better than the iPhone.
