    Spiderman - too pricey for one and don't know if its just me but its got horrible framerate. Shame!

    Worried about MC4 now as its more graphic intense :S

    Yeah, I'm skipping Spider-Man, as I can't justify $7 on a phone game. That, and I'm STILL working on other games on my phone, so I wouldn't have time to play it anyway.

    Spiderman is crap, frame rate is enough to make me tear my eyes out. It's like they didn't even test it.

    I'd buy SpiderMan just to support game loft, because they seem to be the only ones supporting us, but I dont have the space, im going to have to try to find room for nova & modern combat....Why do we need 4GBs free for a 1Gb game idk,

    They're not JUST supporting us though, they're supporting themselves. While I'm willing to buy their games to support their work (like how I bought Asphalt 7 last week), it doesn't mean I'm going to do a "Shut up and take my money!" at all of their works. I have enough to play as it is, so I have to pass on a $7 title from a franchise I don't even have any care for.

    I haven't played the games yet (haven't returned to Windows Phone 8 yet because of the TellMe bugs), but I too am worried about Modern Combat and N.O.V.A. If they can get Asphalt to work fine, I'm sure they can get the shooters to work. Idk how smooth they've worked it out on Android with the same SOC, because the last time I tried it on an S4 SOC was the Galaxy S III and both games ran like crap (Modern Combat 3 and N.O.V.A. 3).

    Shocked to hear Spiderman is so bad, but Asphalt is smooth, seeing as Spiderman is a graphically less-intense game (or so you would think).....

    It might be that Spider-Man loads a larger world at once, so it puts more strain on the CPU.

    They also make Little Acorns, one of my favorite games ever. It's available on WP7/8.

    Man, it really sucks that the framerate for these games is pretty low. I thought they would've optimized the game to run well, but I guess the 920's display is too much to code against...

    Well, I really doubt Modern Combat 4 will be smooth, but I'll still buy it =/

    I don't think the problem is the Lumia 920's hardware. The problem is the lack of optimization on Gameloft's part. In fact, if I had to guess, they're outsourcing the work and chances are they're not as demanding as they should be. They don't want to run up the bill on excessive development costs. This results in performance hits for us which they may or may not address with a patch. Of course, with a powerful GPU that becomes less of an issue, allowing developers to be sloppy.

    I think the same, its outsourced to someone who does some WP development but the original Devs work on something new. 2 of the 3 Games so far played good to great, Asphalt und Real Football. Havent touched Spiderman but i heard i will not miss anything. Batman looks cool from the Iphone Video i saw, but it has also Microtransaction so im not sure about getting it. Shark Dash looks like a nice Puzzler but im still on turn n run so i might get this later.

    I agree, in that Gameloft is just taking the easy route with these ports, and refuses to take Windows Phone as a serious customer. I was really looking forward to the games being more optimized compared to their Android counterparts since there is only one SOC to develop against....

    Asphalt 7 looks and plays as if the game is a recording or something...a recording that you can manipulate and play (if that makes sense). It isn't "crisp" and clear looking and has a type of cloudy look, with a framerate that isn't slow, but isn't as smooth as iOS either...

    Spiderman, as mentioned, runs terrible. It really shows you that Gameloft doesn't care, because there is no way that that would've passed testing running that slow...

    Asphalt 7 looks and works fine. People complain when Gameloft doesn't bring the games - they complain when they do.

    Can't win with some people.

    I suggest you try Asphalt 7 on Android. I did and except for a slight advantage in framerate, maybe due to the lower resolution of the device, it was an inferior port. Menus looked like crap, with poorly scaled graphics. In game framerate was good, but inconsistent. It lacked some of the visual effects of the Windows Phone version, and buildings in the distance were missing textures.

    It could have been symptoms unique to this device, but that phone's internals are identical to the Lumia 920/820.


    That said, I do agree that Gameloft isn't giving it their all. They're outsourcing the ports and not enough care is being given to optimization. Like EA, quality is lacking even in the original, iOS version. So they'll never invest sufficient care in getting second and third tier ports to look and run properly. And good luck ever seeing post launch support.

    Which reminds me, the Android version had additional cars and game play modes that were introduced with some update. I wonder when and if we'll be seeing that.
