    I don't think the cost justifies the gameplay on small devices. So if you are playing the game on console then it's good enough for that time only. I won't be spending on the tablet devices. I am more into PC or the console. So I'd only prefer the installation and game experience on those devices.

    I agree, not only is it expensive but the size of the iPad is far too small to really enjoy the game.

    A friend of mine bought it like a few months ago, it's nice but not for the price.

    Yes the gaming experience just does not compute on Apple devices. Windows based laptops and desktops are good for gaming. Apple's laptops and Ipad series is not really a gaming platform though.

    I suppose you would have to make that decision yourself but the "Chinatown Wars" works on android tablets and smartphones also-so you should be just fine with using it on the ipad as well. They say it has a good look when using it on the ipad so if thats all you have as far as devices go-I would enjoy yourself and have a good time.

    I think it looks good due to the smaller screen.

    Not to the extent you mentioned but it's partially affected.

    I can your point but the smaller screen the less demanding it is.

    Smaller screen requires less rendering power. And so the CPU used would be less. And that in turn helps the device. So I think ipad should be good enough.

    I know many people who had some of the tablets on the heat. Which makes the ipad specific issues that come around. I guess on that note i'd say android tablet seems to be good on starters.

    I haven't played it but it might not be worth it, depending on how good you are with the tablet.

    It's expensive and gives same performance like the cheap android device. so this is one reason I think it's not much worth getting an ipad.

    One upside to it is that it is a bit bigger than a phone, so pressing keys would be a bit easier.

    It's definitely easier but sometimes can be too big

    Yes the screensize is the upside. But apart from that I find the ipad can be a bit harder to manage as well. expense wise.
