    Majora’s Mask 3D’s small but significant changes push it just far enough ahead of Ocarina of Time 3D to make it as unique of an experience as it was fifteen years ago.

    There wasn’t a single minute while I was playing this game that I wasn’t smiling, oohing, or aahing at something, whether it be a new detail in a stage, or a big time move pulled off by another player. The Smash Bros. museum is open once again, and anyone who’s ever loved Smash Bros., Nintendo, or video games in general, should immediately subscribe to the lifetime pass.

    Assassin’s Creed Pirates isn’t some cash in on Assassin’s Creed 4, it is a damn good game that stands right up on its own. It is epic, engaging, and most of all fun. It doesn’t wear out its welcome with bloated mechanics or unnecessary plot. It distills the essence of what we loved about the naval battles and puts it at your fingertips.

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is Rockstar Games’s best port yet.

    Even if you only get up to three iOS games a year, make sure this is one of them. There are hours upon hours of content to play, plenty of islands to explore and monsters to fight.

    The gameplay, while not overly complex and slightly less fine-tuned as its console cousin, is more than adequate. And the overall package is really quite solid. Playdead knows this and the price tag reflects that polish. But is Limbo worth it? Well, there certainly are no shortage of beautiful physics puzzle/platformers already in the App Store, but there’s not many that can match Limbo’s overall quality.

    No matter what form it’s in, Final Fantasy VI is one of the best games in the history of the medium, with its fast-paced battles, humongous world to explore, fascinating characters and bold, original story.

    Cut The Rope 2 is a great time waster, but in the best way possible.

    You’ll feel more adrenaline trying to catch a lie in a testimony than you ever thought possible in the Phoenix Wright Trilogy, which says a lot about how deeply it can immerse you in its stories.

    X-Com: Enemy Unknown controls perfectly on the iPad. The touch controls for the camera, the soldiers, and choosing commands are all intuitively designed and responsive.

    As an indie game by a team known for the wild first-person shooter Serious Sam, not much was expected, and yet what we got was a fantastic puzzle game blended with a story and world surpassing that of most video games by being thought-provoking, well-crafted, and actually having something to say.

    Captain Toad’s Treasure Tracker is a joyous experience in an age where many games go for the grim. This low-cost, high-value puzzler’s packed full of sweet characters, delightful visuals, and its multi-objective level design lets nubile gamers feel accomplished at simply beating a stage while still leaving some nice challenge for the more hardcore among us.

    Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions takes everything that worked about its already-great predecessors, and brings them together into a new dimension of awesomeness.

    The real draw to return to fold, or jump in for the first time if you missed out on GTA V over the course of the last year, lies in the updated graphical prowess current-gen systems hold. Most significantly, the draw distance in this updated version is absolutely outstanding.

    This is an absolutely gorgeous game that must be experienced by anyone with an iOS device.

    Infinity Blade III is proof that some of the best RPGs can actually be downloaded to a smart phone or better yet, your iPad.

    There’s so much to do in Siegecraft TD that you could be occupied with placing towers around grounds for quite some time.

    FTL: Faster Than Light proved to be a hit on the PC, with its massive replayability, intelligently-designed gameplay and minimalist interface, and those same qualities are what make it a success on iOS as well.

    Battleheart Legacy makes use of a minimalist visual style that, while clean and easily accessible, won’t exactly wow you. Its controls, too, are a bit of a sticking point, as during the heat of battle, it’s easy to accidentally click the wrong target or move to the wrong area. Still, these issues are minor, and will probably go unnoticed by players as they’re too distracted by the ludicrous amounts of fun they’re having.

    If you’re a Where’s My Water? fan, but crave a richer and grander experience, just open up your iOS device and strike a little oil.

    Ultimately, Mines of Mars provides an experience that expands well beyond the average iOS title that is almost on par with the higher end of indie, PC gaming quality.

    God of Light is a total keeper, and don’t be surprised if the Source of Life is a portal you’ll continue to tap into.

    Rayman Fiesta brings exactly what its name promises: a fiesta! It’s fun, it’s fast, and it’s smartly made, perfect for anyone who wants to do a little high-speed, high-energy gaming on the go.

    It’s an intricate balance with breathing new life into a seemingly perfect franchise, but leave it to Lego to put all of the pieces together.

    Angry Birds Star Wars II covers all its bases and hits an iOS home run.

    Along with such titles as Year Walk, Hero of Many, and Infinity Blade III, Republique is proof that you don’t need a PC or a high end console to enjoy a visually arresting storyline.

    1968 captures the mood of the 60’s well and is a quality title that you’ll spend hours enjoying. The controls are decent, it looks great, but more importantly, it is something different and interesting.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The controls work well, there are lots of achievements, and it has some of the best music of any iOS game. It’s so cheerful you don’t care when someone doesn’t make it to the urinal.

    Arc Squadron Redux is the pinnacle of this genre and well worth a play if you’ve ever fancied yourself an X-Wing pilot or other hero of the stars.

    On a pure visceral aspect, Anomaly 2 is just pure, unadulterated fun.
