    Skullgirls is a flashy-looking game that is pretty miserable to actually play. It's combat feels a little too simple, and your success seems determined more by lucky Relic rewards than skill. Add to this the fact that this is a fighting game with no multiplayer component, and there's very little reason to actually pick Skullgirls up.

    There is a really good game here to be played, and I hope they develop more "user friendly" controls.

    if Let's Golf 3 doesn't want me to play it, why should I?

    This game is a slap in the face to Simpson fans everywhere, and doesn't deserve in the smallest amount of support.

    If looked at from a distance NBA 2K12 seems like a competent vehicle for playing basketball on the go. Sadly, upon closer inspection, the luster of an incomplete development cycle and poor overall execution of the sport's fundamental gameplay make it nearly impossible to recommend.

    While Smurfs' Village has been in the App Store for a while now, it's getting a second life with the Smurfs movie coming out soon. Unfortunately the Smurfs deliver very little gameplay by limiting the amount of paly time in the game actively doing anything other than looking at Smurfs wander the forest.

    This old-school dungeon-crawler is a little too rough around the edges and leaves out a few too many modern conveniences.

    Fieldrunners Attack! is a game that is ostensibly about strategic base management and combat, but it fails to deliver on both fronts. Moreover, it doesn't make particularly good use of anything that made Fieldrunners appealing in the first place. Across the board, Fieldrunners Attack! is a very disappointing game.

    There's really nothing redeeming about Gangstar New Orleans. It's a bad GTA game with no personality, terrible free-to-play mechanics, representation issues, and a boatload of bugs. Just don't bother with this game at all. There's no reason to.

    Assassin's Creed Memories is hardly a game at all, and shamefully wastes the chance to do something cool with its source material.

    The jokes aren't the most offensive thing about this freemium city building game based around the Family Guy series.

    As a Monty Python fan, I am disappointed with the lazy and unimaginative way this game has used the classic comedy troupe's work. As an iOS gamer, I am disappointed with the obvious, blatant copycatting of Angry Birds. This is nothing more than a licensed-name cash grab, and you should avoid it at all costs.

    There's a fantastic license within but Scarface is really very disappointing and gangster fans won't be impressed at all.

    I didn't think Gameloft could do a worse job with free-to-play than they did with Let's Golf 3, but they sure did! Now please Gameloft, just stop. This is embarrassing.

    The storyline is excellent, and the voice-acting spot-on, but Tales of Phantasia is unbelievably let down by its free-to-play model and terrible controls.

    The RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise finally comes to iOS, but it's a rather disappointing affair.

    I guess if one absolutely adores this genre and has played all the possible iOS variations to death it's worth the pick-up. But, if a time management or diner game with any zest is on the menu, Burger Bustle HD is not the eatery – or game – to visit.

    The idea of an MMO strategy game for a mobile platform is fantastic; it's just a shame the execution falls short of the game's potential.

    There's nothing crucially wrong with Secret Journeys: Cities of the World HD exactly, it's just all too uninteresting to really grab players away from the likes of Big Fish Games' selection.

    Another uninspired movie tie-in to add to the pile, Mortal Instruments is as soulless as the monsters that players are forced to hunt. Even fans will have a hard time enjoying this one.

    Geek Resort is a tycoon-style park creation title with an overall fun art-style; it's simply let down on its reliance of in-app purchases to drive its gameplay, and a few obvious bugs.

    It's a shame that Crafting Story's colorful, stylized polygonal worlds look so nice, because the gameplay of this pseudo-educational title is anything but.

    Orcs. You know them. You love (to kill) them. But it's hard to get excited about playing as them in this uninspired RTS.

    It's inoffensive enough, but that's the problem for LEGO Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles. It's actually quite a dull variety of inoffensive.

    There isn't really much to like about Dark Universe Stories. It's a game of dialogue, story, and puzzles, and all three are underwhelming. Considering the quality of Night School Studio's past work, I was hoping they could make a cool licensed game, but they fail to deliver even when trying to play to their strengths.

    Valerian: City of Alpha's attempts to deliver stories from Valerian's universe are undercut by its gameplay, and its gameplay is clunky and slow.

    Age of Solitaire is a really hard game to recommend. It's a pretty game, but it's otherwise a version of Solitaire that is muddied with ads, consumable in-app purchases, and a relatively lifeless civilzation-building visual layer.
