    I enjoyed Super Turbo Action Pig; I love the name, game, and artwork. Gameplay is a bit unoriginal, but The Joystick Generals did a solid job of reinventing gameplay that hasn't exactly done well on the iPhone.

    The repetitiveness usually comes as a side effect of a casual game that went slightly askew, and it seems to be that way with Superfall. I'm not saying that Superfall is a bad game; it's just not a great game.

    While it does feel Gameloft took a small leap backwards in terms of technological achievement, Splinter Cell Conviction is still a solid game that is enough to have some hours of fun.

    Fun while it lasts. The controls need a lot of tweaking, and the swiping needs a ton of work in terms of sensitivity. I had high hopes for this game, and while it still contains an interesting storyline, the fundamentals need some tweaking.

    Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers is a hack-and-slash button-masher with an excellent story, good controls, and striking visuals. I really liked it, but I do wish it had a touch more depth via customization so there was a reason to replay it beyond seeing if I could rack up 4,000 kills instead of just 3,500.

    While the accelerometer is quite fluid, many of the games key controls are hard to access.

    The AI is slightly under the AI for FIFA 10.

    Overall, Cubed Rally Racer is just an okay game; casual gamers may find it a bit frustrating and ultimately quit for some other game.

    The match-3 mechanics, in my opinion, are quite simple and a bit too unoriginal for my tastes.

    Somewhat bipolar: the boss encounters are well realized and refreshing, while the level-design only average at best.

    The game does offer a ton of content, even if much of it on first glance appears repetitive. Tactile Entertainment just might have created your new constant companion.

    I had a few moments of fun with it, and it definitely shows the progress Namco has taken on the iPhone. And above all else, I'm more than glad to see only one DLC item in there; one that is reasonably priced and makes sense.

    This game is great… except for the controls.

    If you never played the game before, are looking for a classic FPS, and already have DOOM and Wolf 3D then you will have a lot of fun with this as well.

    Robot Rampage looks good, sounds good, but plays mediocre.

    After a few hours, I can only describe the experience as boring and repetitive.

    There's really not many variations in the game. With only one map, there's definitely room for improvement.

    It is ABSURD that a game costing $4.99 should be so bogged down by in-app purchase, and all but require you to spend yet more of your money on expendible items.

    I love Pulse: Volume One for one reason, and that's because it's unique.

    Shadowgun is a bit more than a tech demo, but it's a lot less than an actual game.

    Clearly lacking in innovation, and personally, I'm having trouble playing the game for long periods of time. With a lack of story, lack of creativity, and an overall lack of fun, I say avoid this worm-hole of a mess until further notice.

    I can go on and on about how horrible this sports title is.

    For right now, it's nothing more than a bad first-person shooter.

    It doesn't feel quite 'finished' and the sheer frustration of trying to work with the controls precludes any real chance of having fun.

    Cocoto Magic Circus looks good but plays horribly.

    I hate sloppy. I hate mediocre. Therefore, I hate Maple Story: Thief Edition.

    XS Games failed to realize the demographics of the App Store and failed to edit their game accordingly, making for one of the most difficult, frustrating, and annoying games I have ever played.

    Overall, it's not that fun and way too repetitive, and while it's quite frantic, it doesn't save Zombie Wonderland from being titled as one of the most repetitive games on the App Store… in a bad way.

    Gravity Hook HD is a no go for me. I love casual games-Flight Control, Infect them All, Fruit Ninja-but Gravity Hook HD is way too difficult, repetitive, and frustrating to actually get the hang of.

    Both the worst LotR game and one of the worst tower defense games I have ever played.
