ShadowGun is perhaps the most beautifully-designed game I've seen on the iPad, by far. It's a 3rd-person shooter with rather fantastic controls. I'm not typically one for games with software joysticks, but this game pulls it off well. My only critique is the uninspired voice work. Imagine Duke Nukem, but more bored-sounding. That's this guy. Anyway, the game is really pricey, but definitely worth it.
Cost: $7.99 // App Store Link: ShadowGun
