    The graphics, style, and sound effects are all superb, leaning towards a comic book style rather than a realistic football one.

    Technically the game is fantastic. The graphics are great, the controls are responsive and well done, and the soundtrack is just fantastic. The only real hick-up I found was the occasional heavy frame dropping on the mushroom world of Sporelle.

    While Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for iPhone offers a similar experience to its console counterpart, it won't be the 3D graphic-intensive one you were probably hoping for. That said, the game combines the use of brilliant on-screen controls, immersive objects and environments, comic-like visuals, and supreme attention to detail throughout to bring the first version of the GTA franchise to iPhone.

    While you won't get any new content for upgrading to the HD version, it's so pretty I can't see why you wouldn't.

    One of the most polished, well designed tower defense games in the App Store. Each of its 20 levels are extremely well crafted, and the additional units, weapons, and RPG elements all come together to create the best game the series has to offer.

    It's fun to play, easy to pick up, hard to master, has great animation, quirky style, humorous level dialogue, and has enough levels to keep you entertained for a good deal of time. What more could you want from an iPhone game?

    Silverfish is a fantastic example of what you can do to take well-known genre influences and mix them up to make a fresh and addictive game.

    A refreshingly new entry into the genre that foregoes button-mashing memorization, replacing it with a well-designed, extensive, progressive control scheme that is very rewarding.

    The fact that he gets over 100 km/hr is amazing.

    I really can't recommend Eco Punk enough. It's got a killer personality (literally), great controls, and the game itself is perfect for pick-up-and-play gaming.

    This is the epitome of arcade gaming distilled into its purest form. It truly has to be seen to be believed.

    Those who enjoy combat games or those with a military theme will definitely enjoy Sky Combat. It is fun to play and crash-free; except when the crash is the result of enemy fire.

    The entire game is meant to be a light and fun addition to the turn based strategy game, easy to pick up, deep game play, a lighthearted and humorous story line, and an overall enjoyable equation that makes it an easy choice for those looking for a new game.

    Falls more into the good to very good category and less into the holy $#!& realm. The graphics, sound (especially the repetitive hard rock battle track), and controls are all nice, but not unlike the majority of what you see come out the majority of Gameloft's adventure titles.

    It's a good game that has gotten even better.

    But really, Kingdom Conquest does a fantastic job at being more than just the typical farming game, while keeping a lot of what makes these types of freemium games work.

    A fun, enjoyable and feature packed puzzle game. With gorgeous graphics (which when tilted take on a 3D-like form all on their own), realistic ball and wood like sounds and huge re-playability, Labyrinth 2 is highly recommended.

    Even if you're jaded on match-3 games, Linkoidz is worth playing.

    Imangi has once again proven why they are one of the best independent developers on the iOS platform.

    MiniSquadron is an elegant, intuitive 2D shooter that should delight genre fans and total newbies alike. The difficulty is well balanced, the presentation is great, and blowing stuff up is just daggone fun.

    Monopoly for iPad is classic EA. The focus is on graphics as much as it is on gameplay, making it great fun to play.

    Being somewhat of a casual gaming connoisseur, I can't recommend Ninjatown enough. The challenge of the game along with the quick play time make this one perfect for a quick gaming session.

    It's a simple premise, and the result is a fun game that you can easily play over and over again. Swinging upward from gear to gear is great fun. It doesn't hurt that the artwork is so gorgeous, or that the music is fantastic.

    The RPG elements are fantastic, the story is great, and the graphics and sound are amazing. In a game like this, I would expect longevity to be a concern, but if you do everything in the game, it will probably take you 10-15 hours… and maybe more, to complete.

    The fighting and avoiding mechanics are a delight to watch and effect as a player, while the high quality production makes the game a must-own for any gaming or Spider-Man fan.

    I love this game. CAPCOM spent a lot of time developing it and it shows. Street Fighter IV for the iPhone/iTouch is a complete, quality port of its console counterpart that will appeal to both hardcore veterans and newcomers.

    An exceptionally well designed, visually pleasing and frantically challenging action title.

    Activision's efforts in creating a faithful port of a hit console game a decade old was successful and should be applauded. The virtual control scheme, while not perfect, works; it just may take some players a little time to adjust to it before they're comfortable with the controls.

    As long as you aren't offended by the dark humor and enjoy a good retro platform puzzler, I think it's safe to say that Karoshi is a real winner.

    The very best RTS the App Store has to offer. Everything works well, the controls are tight, the story is surprisingly captivating, and the battles actually seem like battles, not chores.
