    Well mobile versions of console games aren’t worth considering so that’s two out, Boot Camp is just the minigames I’ve already played with added awful phone controls so that’s out, Chickens Can’t Fly and Bullet Asylum look like the only two worth anything.

    Although the fact $2.99 games cost me £2.29 is a joke.

    Any incentive for getting all of them?

    Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is actually alot of fun, and controls surprisingly well.  Was one of the first games I bought for my phone and I still play it quite a bit

    Must have Windows Phone.  Hey Major, care to send me one so i can see how much better it is than my iPhone 4?  ;)

    This smacks of desperation. A bunch of reheated mediocre iPhone games…

    If Microsoft was serious about Windows Phone they’d have exclusive Halo, Forza, Fable etc. Instead they have a smattering of ancient iPhone titles. Weak effort guys.

    I had a Windows Phone for 1 year but i sold it last week. Now i have a iPhone 4s and can buy most of these games for 0,99$. Even Microsoft Games and Apps are better and cheaper than on WP7. Never again Windows Phone!

    windows phone = another zune hd flop

    You need to hurry up and get some more original games out. As others have noted just having games that are already available on other platforms isnt going to cut it.

    I love my windows phone and wouldnt switch and ive bought alot of games and apps just to support developers but since your late in the market with WP7 you need to make not double time but 10x to get ahead, not just follow in terms of apps

    WP7 games have 200GS, which is cool. But in that case, XBLA games should be upped if a cell phone games has the same GS.

    Hot Pursuit is far from a must have one.

    Must have huh? Even if some people don’t like any of the titles they still must HAVE it?… ok.

      I agree

    Mike Glynn If not having 90 percent of the market is ‘dying’ then yeah.
    Those Androids, Badas, WP7s and whatnot can be found on everything from budget phones to expensive ones, not surprising all of them combined have a comparable market share, lmao.

    ea needs to update their mobile site to show autolog app not to mention they didnt announce it on their blog. also they need to update it to access game stats from other nfs games that have autolog not just hot pursuit
