Few, if any, iPhone games have reached the level of hype that Infinity Blade reached. Within only minutes of its release, thousands of gamers were already downloading and playing the game.
So why all the hype? Well, for one thing, the game is powered by Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3, which also just happens to power the Xbox 360 fan favourite, Gears of War 2. The graphics are nothing short of stunning, and look on-par with a current-gen console game - a thing currently unheard of in a handheld device. But did the developers at Chair Entertainment deliver a fantastic game, or is it merely a glorified tech demo?
