Asphalt 7 plays fine.
Thanks a lot! Very helpful. Yeah I saw a bunch of reviews in the app store saying asphalt 6 isn't running yet on the mini, I'm sure they'll fix it soon enough. The good thing is I'll be able to afford getting a 64gb since the mini is cheaper than the new iPad. I'm already getting close to filling up my 32gb iPad.
That Ashpat 7 is rockin. I'm going to be playing it a lot over the holidays....on both devices. The experience on the mini is definitely nice. I just have to remember to stay away from shooters.
Glad will be able to get your mini....for me, I never even consider anything less than 64GB.
I was getting these nice Poetic cases for $5 delievered on Amazon...but now the price has gone up to $13. Argh. At least I got 4 different colors at $5. I find the mini a bit easier to hold inside a case...
I think we ought to try to vett as many games as possible since the mini has the added benefit of game play due to its lightness and form factor.
Avengers works fine too.
Grand Thief Auto seems to work fine too, though I've had problem with it loading on both the mini and the iPad 3 in the past. But there is a lot going on in this game it it is lag free for me.
The form factor is simply perfect for gaming on the mini. The screen on my iPad 4 is really nice but I honestly don't like playing games on it. My hands are so sore today from using it yesterday, taking a day off today from it. My mini should be here Saturday and I can't wait! I need to put my iPad 4 on craigslist but part of me wants to keep it.. But that would be $1100 worth of iPads whoa
maybe better just start new thread contents specialized for reviews of working and non working games for mini that would be awesome dear mod since looks like you have some interests in the matter too:o
Asphalt 7 runs better on the mini than it does my iPad 4.. wasn't expecting that! Haven't tried many other games yet but I use asphalt as a benchmark game usually and its impressively smooth.
I exchanged a mini for an iPad 4 after figuring out the beautiful small design didn't outweigh the older processor and sad lack of retina display in my daily uses. Although I no longer have one, I had about 4 days to give it a try.
Games that aren't very visually taxing play beautifully and quite smooth on the iPad mini. That said, when games such as Nova 3 and Infinity Blade II aren't played the last gen processor really starts to becoming quite obvious. Frame rates are noticeably lower and the gameplay just isn't nearly as smooth as the iPad 4 and iPhone 5. I understand the mini doesn't tote the impressive A6 or A6X processors, but the iPad mini in my personal opinion only worked well for my "very light" gaming needs.
