    There are two manual processes. One is more automated than the other.

    METHOD 1: Use iTunes Backup
    1) Plug in your old iPhone and ensure iTunes creates a full backup.
    2) Plug in your new iPhone, tell it to restore from the backup you just created.
    3) All of your data, settings, game saves, high scores, and content are migrated.

    METHOD 2: Pain in the ass method
    1) Jailbreak the new phone
    2) Connect to the old phone with iPhoneBrowser or SSH or similar
    3) Copy Application directories from the old phone to the new phone.
    4) All of your data (for each application you copy), high scores, saves, etc., will be migrated.

    Good luck! Let's hope one day that Game Center actually provides some level of functionality and manages this for us. This is a huge pain in the ass for people like me with both an iPhone and an iPad that I use on a regular basis -- I have to manually copy savegames between the two if I want to play the same game on both. That's seriously ridiculous, imo.

    With Method 2, there's something I realized I didn't mention -- you need to ensure that each application has been successfully installed on the phone prior to migrating them -- you cannot install an application just by copying the data, you need to ensure the application is already installed and then just overwrite the directories with the information from your other device. All applications HAVE to be registered to your iTunes account and your receiving iPhone has to be activated with that iTunes account as well -- if any of these are not correct, copying the Applications themselves will not work due to the DRM. You also need to ensure that the files get copied with the right ownership and permissions. If you're connected as root, you may take ownership of things accidentally that you don't mean to. Alternately, (and more properly, and safer), you can copy ONLY the save data and leave the actual application alone -- the only problem with this is that there is NO standard for how these games save data, so if the game/app doesn't distinctly provide a way to determine what the save data is (e.g., by calling it savedata.bin or making a SAVES folder, etc.), there isn't too much that can be done to figure it out. In any case, on the phone where the app works, ensure you take a look at the user and group ownership of the files prior to transfer, and ensure that you are duplicating that exactly on the recipient phone. Let me know if this solves your crashing problem.
