    I'm probably just stick to Hydro Thunder if I like the demo. I wanted Sonic but is really expensive.

    I've been looking forward to Angry Birds, althoug they keep delaying it like NoDo. I'm going to have to say I'll probably have the most fun with Hydro Thunder though.

    Plants vs Zombies is my number one pick, though I'm actually going to get them all (except possibly for geoDefense, depending on its difficulty).

    I can play Angry Birds and Plants vs Zombies free on my Browser and Bing respecfully but I might get both in the long run on the go. I mean I'm addicted to Achievements.

    I have zero interested in Geo whatever and I already have Sonic on my Xbox...I wonder if the achievements keep the same.

    I'm still fighting the urge to buy Pacman Championship. The demo finishes before the game so you never know your score... Is extremely frustrating but damn man 7 bucks =/.

    They'll probably just do the same old "Get all the emeralds" or "Beat the entire game in under this time frame."

    Geo Defense is the most tempting of the lot for me, but I'll prob bend and grab Angry Birds too.

    I paid for the game and can't seem to play nothing but one board and one mode. Strange.

    I wanted Angry Birds but as it's more than three times the price of the iOS version I'll give it a miss and play the game on my daughters iPod.
    While MS have price brackets it's the developers that state the price guess some are just a bit greedy, shame really as it hinders the platforms growth.

    Hydro Thunder is probably a definite for me. I loved Hydro Thunder on the Dreamcast, so I'll probably buy it for the Nostalgia. Plants vs Zombies is the next title I'm interested in, then probably Angry Birds...though Pandas vs Ninjas is a great substitute!

    Picked up the trial of Hydro Thunder Go.

    I dunno about this one, maybe I expected a super smooth frame rate experience and I'm asking too much. It's not unplayable and I expect the full title is worth it for the leaderboards and achievements and it may just be my phone.

    Installed and running on an up-to-date LG Optimus 7 and would be inerested in other peoples thoughts regarding frame rate which at a guess would say is about 20 fps, again I'm probably expecting too much.

    I try it right now from the same phone and the graphics are just bad. Blurry, low poly and doesn't seem to be running at the correct resolution. It looks washed out.

    It controls pretty fine actually but due to the bad graphics and average framerate is hard to see what's going on and there doesn't seem to be a way to pause the game.


    Very disappointed. On the upside Pacman CE DX continues to be awesome.



    Edit: You can pause the game by pressing back, silly me.

    I am playing Pac_Man CE DX (great game). I will try the Hydro Thunder trial when I get home. Not sure I will get any of the others. I already own Sonic 4(PSN), Angry Birds(PRE) and Plants Vs Zombies(PC).

    Sonic 4 would be nice to have on the go, it would be more for my son than for me.
