    Im getting this phone on Monday and was wondering what type of games work well with this phone? Do you think GTA3 and Duke Nukem3D other hd type games will work with the Esteem?

    Nearly every game that runs on my tablet runs on esteem but the screen is too small in most cases .

    You're missing an entire aspect of the esteem :)
    you can get a micro-HDMI cable and run it on your tv.

    for games where you don't have to look at the screen of course, like motorcycles, racing etc... with a bluetooth mouse, possibly every game.

    just tried it on my 55' LCD tv, it's pretty bad ass. :D

    Has anyone tried chainfire with this phone yet? I would love to try games like Backstab, Shadow Gun, 9mm, and a bunch of other games that claim they are not compatible.

    Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim

    Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim is also great. The full version is is cheaper at Amazon AppStore.

    Samurai II: Vengeance


    I generally dislike Android games that use a virtual D-pad and buttons instead of touchscreen, but Samurai II: Vengeance is gorgeous so I am making an exception for this game. Do not get this game from Amazon AppStore because the Amazon's version is not compatible with LG Esteem:

    Tek2 Review

    The last review is wrong. Samurai II runs smoothly on LG Esteem.



    Emissary of War

    Emissary of War has exceptional 3D graphics, some interest gameplay mechanics, and touchscreen controls.

    Turning Melo

    Turning Melo is another very polished game I would recommend -- and it is currently free!

    Cyberlords - Arcology

    Cyberlords - Arcology is a "classic-style" Western RPG with contemporary visuals and a dystopia cyberpunk setting. It is a good game, but the weakest one among my recommendations.

    Android Apps Review

    I despise JRPG and MMO, so I will not be recommending any. However, JRPG and MMO are two of the most common and popular genres on Android. They are more prevalent than single-player WRPG on Android.

    Sorry for putting this in the "All things Root" section. I was typing this thread on my Admire through the phandroid app and missed posted it. I thought it was in the "General" section till I got on my PC and noticed I put here. My bad.

    i purchased Uno from the android market and it downloaded a really crappy version with no online multiplayer like it showed in the description. I had to email them and complain. They finally gave me the good version of the game.

    They said it was only for high end devices but the LG revolution was listed as one of the ones that could use the game.

    i had to explain to them that the esteem and revolution is the exact same phone except for less space.

    Hey Prime85,

    I was wondering, when you got Duke3d, did you get all the episodes when you purchased it? I did purchase Duke3D and it is only giving me one episode. Just not sure what is going on. I'll be kind of pissed if I have to purchase the other two episodes but no big deal. It is my favorite game of all time.

    I know I am replying late but this forum is all about searching the forums for previously asked questions. So from this thread the Esteem can play 3d games well? Can it play Muffin Knight well too? I have the Triumph atm and it freezes a lot playing 3d games. I am really thinking about switching to the Esteem but it has to play 3d graphics well.
