    With over 100 levels and Wi-Fi functionality via leaderboards, Exit DS isn't totally without merit.

    It's a sharp looking 2D brawler with loose ties to the upcoming film, but repetitive combat and a lack of depth keep it from greatness.

    If the original CSR Racing's business model turned your stomach, you'd be advised to give CSR Classic a pretty wide berth. And that's once again a huge pity, because while the reflex gameplay is simple it's also a lot of fun when you're playing it. If you don't mind either playing in short bursts, or paying in large bursts, there's fun to be had here alongside the frustration.

    It's a good game, but with some tweaking, Empty Flask could transform it into a great one. That said, it'll be interesting to see how it evolves over time, but for now, it provides a few sword-slashing thrills.

    Had developer Griptonite expanded the scope of the city and cleaned up the guard A.I., Bloodlines would've been on the same level as previous Assassin's Creed games. As it stands, it's merely a side chapter instead of a main attraction.

    A nice twist on the theme that makes the game more interesting to play than Koei's worn-out efforts, but you still can't help but feel more could have been done with enemy AI, camera adjustment, and multiplayer.

    Sega really stumbled into a brick wall with this game and it'll always be one of those titles that, when I look back on it, will be remembered as a missed opportunity to create something truly special.

    Had RayForce been $0.99 or even $3.99, I would've recommended it, since the game has plenty of fans and takes me back to the 90s. The price, sadly, is a huge sticking point, and quite frankly, you can pick up plenty of better games for less.

    At it's worst, it's a terribly frustrating physics puzzler by anyone's standards, and I'm not sure what the presumed target audience of younger gamers is likely to make of it.

    It's an enjoyable enough game though, and if you crave something different from the App Store this week, Fury of the Gods does a fine job of striking out in a new direction. It's not perfect by any means, but what it does get right is extremely polished and well worth checking out.

    Anyone who played the earlier Dungeon Hunter games will need very little convincing to jump straight into Gameloft's fourth installment of the franchise. Those new to the mobile action-RPG may find the premium purchases a little stifling compared to the feast available on more traditional platforms, but there's ample opportunity to find out if the price suits your pockets from the free download alone.

    I like the idea behind it. But I wish some more attention was given to the fighting engine.

    It's still a fun Bejeweled clone, and you'll need a few hours to clear its puzzles, but we needed something innovative.

    Crazy Taxi: City Rush is a strange riff on the classic game, but it does come into its own as a pleasing alternative to the original. Unfortunately, its reliance on free-to-play currency does end up making it more frustrating than it should be.

    Do give it a go, but unless we get a premium version of the game in the months ahead, do be prepared for long-term disappointment.

    There's a great chance you'll run into the usual in-app purchase wall that ultimately mars free-to-play video games, but for the most part (and given what it is), Dark Avenger is a decent though unremarkable iPhone and iPad effort that'll give you something else to play in between releases. With this title, the less you expect, the more it entertains.

    Whether you're a fan of zombie games or not, you'll find plenty of content here that is fun. The gameplay is tight and lacks really any sort of gimmick. The only qualms I had was that the gameplay wasn't varied enough for the length of the game, but it was still a blast till the end.

    Essentially a collection of the same old stuff we've been playing on the PS2 for the last few years, Blazin' Trails fails to tantalize the senses but rather frays the nerves with a sloppy frame rate and awkward controls.

    Jelly Splash is sure to find an audience, especially for those who have sworn off Candy Crush Saga because they can't get past that one level. It's enjoyable to play and a pleasure to look at, but chances are you'll run into a similar problem, either forking over some cash or waiting that 25-minute period. Bring your skills, and maybe a little patience.

    Back to Bed is practically oozing with visual charm, but it can't back it up with weak gameplay and a lack of replay value. Perhaps the developers should have slept on it a bit longer.

    Most of the games are fun, but not all of them are winners, and the presentation isn't as blown-out crazy as the forthcoming Hot PXL or the Wario Ware games.

    If you're looking for a good zombie fix this Halloween, Undead Knights should be on the top of your list. The addictive zombie-commanding action, multiplayer options and blood-soaked presentation will make you want to join this legion.

    That said, this is one of those titles where some levels are pathetically easy, others ridiculously tough. The difficulty is a bit all over the place.

    Extended Play could have been a little better in terms of its presentation and some of its title selections (why no Hydro Thunder?), but it's a good start for the series' portable run, and I hope that future chapters continue to bring us the best of Midway's gaming past.

    Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron may not be as good as the previous console releases that came before it, but for fans of the series, there's still some fun to be had.

    Cute, twisted and somewhat entertaining, Catball's worth a look.

    Rest assured that if you absolutely adore this series, Katamari Amore delivers more of the same. Whether or not that's good enough, though, is entirely up to you.

    Despite feeling like a grind at times - especially when it comes to waiting on a stamina refill or buying new goods - Batman: Arkham Origins will certainly put a smile on the faces of Batman fans. A fair offering to fill the gap until the console game comes out.

    To play as the other demons, and enjoy their music and rhythm patterns in the corridor sections, you'll have to shell out an astonishing $2.99 per demon, or simply put up with repetitive corridor runs to get to the better stuff. If you think CSR Racing was greedy, you ain't seen nothing yet.

    Fails to keep your attention for longer than a few meager hours. This is too bad, as this license has personality to spare that could've made this a must-own.
