The year's most anticipated iPad game doesn't disappoint, if you're a fan of the original or crave console-quality graphics. A lot of this sequel's mechanics remain true to the original Infinity Blade: swipe-based swordplay, weapon upgrades, and lots and lots of dying. There are a few new wrinkles, though: for instance, you can now explore branching pathways. Plus, it all looks even better than before. We'd still prefer a full-fledged adventure, but Infinity Blade II is another step forward.
