    The House of the Dead: Overkill – The Lost Reels ($4.99, Universal) is a bland, and repetitive shooter that doesn’t deliver anything that’s truly noteworthy or enjoyable. The title is longer than the actual gameplay, making it one to skip.

    Gravity Guy 2 ($0.99, Universal) offers less than the original, and subpar gameplay to boot making it one to just run right past. As the old saying goes, don’t mess with success, and with that in mind your best bet is to pick up the original Gravity Guy ($0.99 -> Free, iPhone) / ($1.99 -> Free, iPad) as it has dropped to free in honor of the sequel.

    There are some bothersome elements, but there’s still one deluxe action RPG dungeon crawler to enjoy that is well worth your time to hack, and slash your way through.

    Crazy Taxi City Rush offers a promising beginning, but in the end doesn't collect its fare due to a restrictive fuel meter, and redundant gameplay structure.

    R.B.I. Baseball 14 is sadly one to skip, as there are some misgivings that just can’t be overlooked, and drag down all of the other good parts of this baseball game. It’s as though R.B.I. Baseball 14 hit what looks to be an inside the park home run, but gets tagged out at home.

    Back to Bed is bursting with style, but lacking in game execution to make it one to skip despite all that’s included. The game squanders the promising nature, and goodwill that is builds up.

    Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery Episode 2 is a well done puzzle adventure that is worth picking up, though it doesn’t live up to the expectations based on episode one.

    Cubed Snowboarding offers a promising beginning that goes downhill fast as it’s tough to get your bearings with the controls making it one to skip despite the other well designed aspects.

    Bladeslinger looks so promising, but never taps into its potential. It’s one of the best looking games in the App Store, but the gameplay is rudimentary at best with other restrictions sprinkled in, sadly making it one to skip.

    Rival Stars Basketball has some good elements, but it’s just a bit too simplistic, easy, and repetitive to recommend.

    Galcon 2 has a great pedigree, but just doesn’t bring much new beyond an online system that isn’t catered to multiple skill levels making it sadly one to skip.

    Tempo looks great on the surface, but it’s far too simple to recommend. It’s worth noting that Tempo feels like a simple free to play game, but it’s actually a paid game with no in-app purchases.

    Swords & Poker Adventures is well put together with a lot to do, but there isn’t the greatest incentive to keep playing, making it worth considering depending on your affinity for poker, and the first two.

    An entertaining action game that has a humorous premise, and deluxe beat 'em up gameplay, making it wroth the price of admission.

    Blood Bowl has a lot to offer, though with limited appeal making it worth picking considering depending on our familiarity with the franchise. It’s worth noting that there are plenty of other complex iOS board games that have much friendlier learning curves.

    Boulder Jack lets you try to outrun a boulder for as long as possible that is fun in small bursts that is worth considering depending on your affinity for the 3D endless runner.

    The Deer God delivers a big world to run through with a few stumbles along the way, but overall is worth picking up.

    Gangstar Vegas ($6.99, Universal) isn’t innovative by any means, and feels like a run of the mill entry into the genre. With that said, it’s still plenty entertaining through the lengthy campaign making it worth the premium price of admission.

    Exiles delivers a deluxe space adventure that is worth picking up to give you a whole lot to play.

    The main drawback is that it doesn't feel all that different than the many other kart racers in the App Store. After a couple of races, it's tough to tell this one apart, so there's a definite repetitive feeling especially without any features to truly stand out.

    Brothers in Arms 3: Sons of War is an unremarkable offering that is too bland, and simplistic to recommend.

    Angry Birds Go is worth trying out for free, but the enjoyment is a short sprint, rather than a marathon.

    Faif looks great on the surface, but comes extremely short on execution making it one to skip.

    Breakneck isn’t bad, but it’s not particularly enjoyable either, making it worth considering depending on your affinity for the genre.

    Godus gets off to a promising start that sadly falls flat after awhile leaving you not much to do, and not much incentive to keep coming back to the ever increasing wait times.

    Man of Steel ($2.99, iPhone / $4.99, iPad) is too simple to recommend, but it still provides some mindless fun making it worth considering depending on how much you like brawler games and Superman.
    • 59 Metascore

    After Burner Climax delivers intense aerial action with tons of planes to battle at once, all at great speeds. The game is worth the price of admission for some classic fun, which feels right at home on iOS.

    Seashine is one to swim past as the gameplay sinks below the good looks.
    • 59 Metascore

    Asphalt Overdrive is a deluxe offering that still is a bit lifeless when playing making it worth considering depending on your affinity for the Asphalt series.

    Gunner Z looks good, but that’s about all it has going for it making it one to steer clear of.
