Sorry I havent updated this lately guys. Been very busy with work but i will update it soon

If you need to search through these games quickly to see if the game you want to buy is working just use Ctrl F

Also, if you find a game that is working on you GS2 but is in the not working list on this post, please tell us what version of game it says you are using. If you don't know how to find this out, just go to:
Settings - Applications - Manage Application - Select the game.
It should be listed under the title of the game eg. Version x.x.x

This will help anyone struggling to get a compatible version of the game.

AIUI the current version of the SGS II doesn't use the tegra chipset so does that mean that the games featured in the Tegra Zone app typically won't work ?

nice thread, although i donta have my sgs2 as of yet would be nice to be able to play some of the non compatable games as a few are good

The galaxy s2 is not available on any mobile services yet, only phones4u so there wont be many compatible games available yet until the updates come through. They shouldn't take long though. I would still recommend getting one though. It's the nicest phone I have ever used. I have always had HTC's or an Iphone and this is just in a different league. All my mates are sending back there iphone 4's now because they had a go on this one :p

well theres more games that work than dont, do you ahve to buy these from android market or can you just install for free from sd?

It depends were you get them from. If there free you can download them from the internet, but then you might as well get them from the market. At least then they will be regularly upgraded. I would only download the APK's from the internet when there is only a specific version that will work. If you want to install them from My Files you will need to allow the installation from an unknown source. You can find paid game for free if you know were to look but I wouldn't recommend it. I only do that when I'm trying different versions of the game for research purposes. But i remove them straight away.

    Downloaded the following from the Gameloft site yesterday:
    Ashphalt 6
    Let's Golf 2
    Modern Combat 2

    Modern Combat gives a force close, the others work ok

    if you get force close on modern combat hold home button and start through task manager and then it works

    Pocket-Legends

    Status: Runs, but crashes regularly
    Tested on: XWKE1, XWKE7

    Anyone else?

    Same here, constant crashes. On the in-games settings, I turn off sound and set the battery savings slider all the way to the right to get it not to crash.

    I sent logs to the Spacetime Devs and they reckon it's the sound that's crashing it, so try turning that off first and go from there.
