These provide full, fast, white-knuckled experiences up-front without nickel-and-diming you later.

We're focusing on reflex-driven games, which includes a few shooters, but you'll find a great mix here. Be sure to let us know in the comments what you think of our top ten iPad action games without IAPs, and leave a few of your own suggestions.
