Boy did we apparently get that one wrong. The top game of the month of August, according to the metrics of Quality Index is one of our least favourite iPad games in recent months: Anomaly Warzone Earth.
When we reviewed it, we felt it wasn't anywhere near as innovative or interesting as it claimed to be, but the other critics apparently loved it. Qualityindex.com's metrics come from over 100,000 websites such as 148Apps, Pocket Gamer, and Macworld.
On the plus side, Contre Jour, which we did like, was also in the top 10.
The full list for those interested, as well as the Qualityindex score:
1 Anomaly Warzone Earth Chillingo 9.6
2 Edge Extended Mobigame 9.5
3 iBlast Moki 2 Godzilab 9.4
4 Flick Soccer! Full Fat 9.1
5 Spy Mouse Electronic Arts 8.9
6 Aces 3D Brick Breaker Concrete Software 8.9
7 Cut the Rope: Experiments ZeptoLab 8.7
8 Contre Jour HD Chillingo 8.7

We still don't suggest you get Warzone.
