    Those looking for some fresh blood without putting too much of a dent in their wallet will want to give it a look though.

    Three games that deliver a pretty good value. Sadly, that's about it for this package. There's no extra music galleries, no mini-games, not even the ability to play with upgraded visuals. It is kind of bare-bones in that regard, and that may turn off those who look for everything in a collection.

    Taking that into account, ATV Wild Ride 3D was clearly designed as a quick-play arcade-style game, and while the visuals do very little with the hardware, you'll probably come back to this title more than you originally thought. Just don't go into it with high expectations.

    Great Little War Game HD is much better than a three out of five. We just couldn't award it a higher score knowing it crashes on iPad 2. If you can deal with that, or have the iPhone/older iPad, this App comes highly recommended.

    Nevertheless, Nancy Drew: Deadly Secret of Olde World Park hits the spot surprisingly well, rather than dwelling in "girly content" that would've made this game just as insulting as Acclaim's Mary Kate and Ashley line-up.

    Just make sure to keep the improper touching to a minimum -- you don't want to be completely freaky like these guys. It is still a prison, after all.

    There's no denying that Sudoku Gridmaster is a somewhat boring release, but its very clear in what it is and what it is attempting to accomplish, and I feel it accomplishes it quite well. I think it's a better Sudoku experience than what's included in "Brain Age", but that probably only really matters to those that are really into the puzzle.

    No, Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This? won't change the way you look at tower defense games. There are better ones out there with minions that actually act the way they're supposed to. Despite that, there's a decent game hidden within the issues.

    If you love monsters and building things without much fuss, it satisfies on some level. We just expected more treats than tricks.

    All told, this isn't the type of action game we expected, and it didn't take long for Samurai Sword Destiny to wear out its welcome.

    With vehicles, suits and lots of classic characters, LEGO Batman: The Videogame is a fun DS game worth your time. It's not as attractive as the PSP version and it doesn't take great advantage of the hardware, but if Nintendo's system is all you own, it's worth a trip to the Batcave.

    All Guns Blazing is a fun shooter in short bursts. The gameplay gets a bit repetitive with each play through, but if played in moderation it can be a pretty fun time building up your cartel.

    Fionna Fights certainly has its moments, although the game's a very short-lived affair when all's said and done. Having grabbed a few power-ups and run a dozen or so games, you'll have seen everything the game has to offer, but fans of the cartoon series will certainly get more mileage out of this particular adventure.

    Episode 2 disappoints overall, simply because it should have been better than it is. Sega put some good ideas on the table, but the bothersome water segments, tag team maneuvers and uninspired level design left us wanting a lot more. Hardcore Sonic fans, we imagine, will still gobble it up.

    A decent Angry Birds clone that'll appeal to wrestling fans and, well, wrestling fans. There's little reason to choose this game over the other titles in the App Store, but if you eat, sleep and breathe WWE, it provides a decent experience.

    For .99, Ghosts'n Zombies is a decent pick up, but the holy roller hero and been there/seen that design means you'll stop playing and ultimately forget about it days after making the purchase, but as that mustachioed dude said in RoboCop, "I'd buy that for the dollar."

    Mishandled is the best way to describe what EA's done with the Marvel license.

    You could spend $20 on worse things, though. Labyrinth doesn't quite have the legs to live up alongside other puzzle games, but it does offer a little bit of substance for those looking for an exercise in strategy and cunning.

    It's not bad by any means, but to some of you seeking the ultimate Transformer gaming experience, it may be less than meets the eye.

    The game comes with a new and slightly speedier version (and when I say slightly I really mean SLIGHTLY) that has some snazzy special effects (and by snazzy I mean not really snazzy at all).

    Pick it up because you want to spin yourself around the living room hunting for ships, or can deal with the submarine style controls. Accept the game for what it is, and you'll enjoy what it has to offer.

    Monster Paradise is one of the better monster gathering games we've played on mobiles, and those with less aversion to the cynical business model will enjoy what's on offer. We're still waiting for something special though, and Paradise's business model as well as its opaque, Skinner box questing means this isn't quite the obsessive collection game we've been waiting for.

    The game seems ideal for younger children, although they'll likely become frustrated once the easier levels are behind them. Still, if you hanker for a refreshingly different puzzler, we still think you'll get your money's worth from what's on offer.

    Despite the game's shortcomings in terms of its presentation and play quirks, it still scores in one major category- multiplayer.

    It's a thinking man's game that requires a high chain count and wily thinking in order to assure survival. Some leniency for more amateur players probably should have been granted, but that's probably something that will be saved for "EEE II."

    Online play via infrastructure also feels a little broken, with some frustrating lags and glitches also coming into play during a game.

    Harvey Birdman's big problem, however, is length. The five cases will take you a few hours to get through, at best.

    For a free-to-play game, Ultima Forever isn't bad at all, and adventurers with a good online connection won't want to miss out on the chance to play alongside friends. Between technical bugs, the complete lack of an off-line mode, and the need to pay for premium items though, it might just take you forever to really get into the game's many charms.

    There's a hazy quality to Valhalla Knights that ensures nothing ever become too vibrant or exciting; I guess that's what some people call style. I tend to call it boring.

    But the actual tennis is excellent and the various mini games are lots of fun, so if you absolutely love the Mario Tennis series and/or have a few friends that also own this game (because each player needs a copy), it's a decent purchase.
