The iPhone 4S was recently announced during Apple's press event. While the new iDevice may not have caught everyone's eye (Editor's note: Who are you kidding?), the new A5 processor chip makes the new iPhone a worthy adversary to the other smart phones in today’s market. Having the same processing power as Apple's other product, the iPad 2, the iPhone 4S can handle the latest iOS games. Gameranx has compiled the top ten best games for the iPhone 4S.
#10. Street Fighter IV
We're going to start this list off with a bang with Street Fighter IV! Capcom has (arguably) made what fighting game fans regard as the number one fighting game. The Street Fighter series has been on everything from arcade machines to standalone consoles, and mobile phones seem like the next obvious platform. Street Fighter IV on the iPhone 4S will give you the impression that you're playing a full release game and not some half-baked mobile spinoff.
You're given a roster of fourteen playable characters and up to eleven environments to fight in. Staying true to the series, fighters will have their own unique and special attacks. Not only are you given the tournament option but you can even start up a Bluetooth connection and go head-to-head with a friend. This very well may be the best fighter on the iOS right now.
#9. Spider-Man: Total Mayhem
Developed by Gameloft, Spider-Man Total Mayhem lets you experience a day in the life of Peter Parker. Take on some of the daily tasks and errands that pop up in the city as you swing from building to building. While this game may not have much of a storyline (or character development, for that matter), the web action and boss fights make up for it.
Regardless, the game offers a few extras to keep you hooked. For instance, throughout the game you will unlock a vast array of concept art made for the game. Several of Spider-Man's nemeses show up in the game as well; Electro, Green Goblin, Rhino, Venom and the Sandman are a few of the enemies that will have their hand in taking over New York City. Gamers are left with making quick actions and saving innocent citizens from what looks like impending doom!
#8. N.O.V.A 2
The N.O.V.A series has been called the Halo for the iOS. While the game does bear a resemblance to being a Halo clone, N.O.V.A 2 is a great game for hardcore gamers. Created by Gameloft, N.O.V.A 2 is the second installment of the series. This time around we get a new selection of weapons and drivable vehicles.
The game starts right after the events of the first game, as Captain Kal fights off the last of the Voltarites in his spaceship, when Kal realizes that the only way to bail out is to head for the nearest emergency exit. While escaping the spaceship, he is alerted to the presence of a new a new threat against Earth. As Kal, your job is now to take on this "Alliance" and stop the assault and save and alert nearby N.O.V.A troops.
