I don't know how I feel about Real Steel, sometimes I'm brainwashed by robots beating the crap out of each other and other times I just think how ridiculous it is. It doesn't matter when it comes to the iPad game though because it's a basic fighting game, only with robots as the characters.
You can either choose Tournament mode where you move up the ranks to become champion robot or a quick sparring match to hone your skills. The controls are overlaid on the screen and the game looks fun as hell. $5 [iTunes]
