    The point and click adventures that have too much dialogue do not appeal much to me, as I like to play my games and not read them; but I really did enjoy the story of Scarlett.

    This game is great… except for the controls.

    Once you strip down the game to its bare core and reveal it in its true form, you get a relatively smooth online FPS with one gameplay mode. Poor animations add to the list along with the fact that replay value is limited, making for quite mediocre online play.

    Xenome is, in one word, raw. It's very raw, but it has so much potential that I actually cannot wait for it to finally blossom.

    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.

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

    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.

    Scribble Show is extremely limited in terms of replay value and gameplay, but the interesting drawing concept of the game is enough for me to not totally write this off as horrible.

    BioDefense is fun your first time through, but after that, it's hard to get back into the game again. It's definitely repetitive, as there isn't much variety within the missions, and there doesn't seem to be any unlockable items (except for the achievements, of course).

    The approach to gameplay feels about ten-years old. As in early Resident Evil games, players will often find the simple act of walking through a room cumbersome.

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

    Anyone looking for a true Ridge Racer experience shouldn't find one here, and with such a lack of true content and more of a DLC extravaganza, Namco has managed to once again destroy a once beautiful franchise.

    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.

    Controls still suck.

    Right now, I'm just much too tired to explain ALL of Rage's faults. There's such a long laundry list, but basically it's that it doesn't have a story and it's short.

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

    Not only does the game take forever to get started, but you'll swear it's loading even as you play. Even with the speed cranked up, the game just feels sluggish.

    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.

    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.

    Honestly, by the time you've gotten five minutes into Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet, you will have seen just about everything the game has to offer. The only reason to go on playing after that is to unlock the three or four costume changes, as the game has no other staying power.

    Rogue Running looks the part, but sadly does not play it well.

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

    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.

    Homerun Battle 2, as you can see, makes me quite furious. And disappointed. And shocked.

    Cocoto Magic Circus looks good but plays horribly.

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

    This is just another attempt by a big company to cash in on name. This is an absolutely horrible game that should not be picked up at all costs.

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