    But it's the gameplay and extras that will keep you coming back.

    It's well made, super addictive and easy to get the hang of, so long as you find willing participants.

    Resistance: Retribution is worth a look, thanks to its enjoyable single player campaign, sharp visuals and addictive multiplayer. PSP owners should definitely pick it up.

    What's here, though, looks beautiful. Wolf Boy is without question one of the iPhone's most attractive 2-D games, full of pretty hand drawn artwork and cool special effects. We just wish there was more variety.

    League of Evil 2 offers more of the same, which is definitely a good thing, since the first title is so much fun. For just $0.99 (the sale price, so be sure to act quickly), it makes for a great virtual companion, whether you intend to play for a few minutes or several hours.

    Crosswords Plus is one of the handheld's more enjoyable and satisfying puzzle games, one that overflows with value. It lacks visual punch, but pound for pound, it goes quite well with a tropical drink.

    There are hundreds of ways to style your character at the beginning.

    Of course, outstanding graphics don't make a great game. Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard is without question one of the App Store's premier first person shooters.

    Despite the fact little has changed, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 is one of the most playable golf games you'll stumble across, and it does justice to the PSP.

    The main reason why I like The Sacred Stones is because it looks and feels old school, meaning it's reminiscent of classic NES RPGs, but beyond its look this is a quality turn-based experience that'll last you for hours.

    That's the biggest knock against GTA 3. When things get nuts, as they often do, the controls make situations tougher than they should be. If controller snobs need another reason to complain about playing 3D games on a smart phone, Rockstar just gave those people ammunition...[But] Grand Theft Auto 3 is one of the App Store's best titles, and we strongly suggest downloading it immediately.

    It's certainly not the prettiest game, nor is it the most original (some enemies bear a striking resemblance to the Helghast from Killzone), but Overkill has enough content to keep you blasting away for weeks. The fact that it has 30 ranks (from private to general) sweetens the deal.

    Along with the great controls and the involving adventure that will keep you playing for hours at a time, the game also benefits from beautiful visuals that really bring out the best in the PSP.

    Gameloft has done a marvelous job creating a high-quality game that you'll enjoy for months to come, even during actual fishing trips. After all, everyone needs something to pass the time.

    Far too many of the NSMB levels are simply too short. Even in the final world, it feels as though you're hitting the midway restart point in seconds, and then crossing the finish line when the level was just hitting its stride.

    There's no clunkiness like there was in Altair's Chronicles, only great 2-D platforming and a cool presentation. This is a pleasant Discovery indeed.

    You have to work hard to penetrate the unfriendly surface of Frozen Synapse, not just because of the depth of strategy, but also a rather unfortunate disregard for the early days of the eager but uncertain newcomer. Persevere though, and you'll be rewarded with one of the finest tactical games you can get for your tablet.

    The developers packed a ton of value into a tiny $0.99 package. Smart, fun and addictive, this is one iPhone title you need to play.

    Capcom delivered the usual free-to-play experience, and fans of the Smurfs will get a kick out of seeing a handful of familiar characters, Papa Smurf included.

    WipEout and Mario Kart may have inspired it, but the game fails to achieve such excellence. On its own, though, Table Top Racing is a solid addition to the App Store, and a worthwhile purchase for players who grew up zipping toy cars around their homes.

    Not only is it a great way to show off Vita without breaking the bank, but it also retains the series' intense action while highlighting the portable's second analog. That said, jump on the sticks and save the universe...again.

    Overall, if you like the Indiana Jones flicks or have a flavor for something Lego (and can't wait for Lego Batman), this trilogy will hit the spot. It's fun for all ages, even if it doesn't do anything incredibly different over the Star Wars games.

    It can be much more frustrating and unforgiving than the other titles in the series, but in the end it's very much worth your time.

    Civilization Revolution makes our DS smile. The game is sweet strategic candy wrapped in replay chocolate.

    This is the best comic-book beat-em-up from Activision to date, with a huge list of characters to choose from, many villains to defeat, and the ability to go at it solo or with friends.

    Another great platformer in a genre that is slowly shifting to 3-D, but hasn't made the movement quite yet. If you're looking for something thoroughly challenging and fun all the same, this is a dream come true.

    It's a fun distraction that may consume your life, at least for a weekend.

    Space Invaders Extreme should be the next game you buy for your DS.
