It's pretty fun.  Sit in a desk chair in a dark room and try the AR mode.  :)

It's ok, but the controls are poor and you'll often miss fighters even at point blank range.  I do not recommend getting it, it's overpriced.

Did you play in AR mode?  I will say the controls take some getting used to, but I'm finding it fun.  The fighters are easier to hit in AR mode, I think.

Do you need an ipad 2 for that game?  It looks fun but I have no camera on mine :(

I'm guessing it would play the normal, space mission way, you just wouldn't be able to use the AR mode.

I thought I did, suppose I can give it another go.

Yep - exactly.  Kinda fun too.  I need to buy some Brisk Tea and get some of those codes now.

The music and sound effects are very good.  Check out the leaderboards though, what's up with that?  Number three and four are like 6k and one and two are in the billions.  Someone's cheatin'!

Yeah, if you look at 99% of the games on the leaderboards, they are all cheating at #1-5.  Don't know how, but its probably a jailbreak or something. 

That's why I only pay attention to the friend leaderboard, more fun anyway :)

Enjoying a new App called TuneIn Radio.  It allows you to listen to radio stations from all over the country and the world.  Very cool.  The Pro version for $0.99 allows you to record stuff too.
