    Despite our frustration with the lack of mid-level checkpoints, Red Star is a beautiful and elegantly executed iPhone port of a PS2 game.

    For those of you that fit this category, first I hate you, and second you will find an immersive and complete game that did wonders on its console debut and is meeting with pleasant reactions in its iDevice debut as well.

    Despite those problems though this is a great action title offering an intense mix of fighting, shooting and adventure. However, casual gamers beware!… this is hardcore through and through.

    Red Star is a decent adaption of a great beat'em up title that pushes the limits of the current generation iDevices and seriously tests your hardcore gaming skills.

    Red Star boasts astonishing production values and challenging gameplay, but the tacked-on touch controls and unforgiving difficulty are frustrating.

    As much as I wanted to rave about this one, I must begrudgingly admit that those who love freedom would probably be better served hunting down a copy of the PS2 version or downloading it for PSP.

    XS Games failed to realize the demographics of the App Store and failed to edit their game accordingly, making for one of the most difficult, frustrating, and annoying games I have ever played.
