    Fast and Furious Adrenaline is a competent racing game; it'll provide you with a few hours of high-speed thrills along with some sweet cars. There are some issues with it including the need to connect to Facebook to access the online multiplayer, but all in all, I thought it was a good racer.

    Highborn is a really strong game and I highly recommend you give it a shot, even if your not a fan of turn based strategy games, or you're tired of them. This is fresh, new, and seriously…how expensive is it really?

    Overall, despite some minor gripes that can be fixed with updates such as deathmatch multiplayer, or lock-on controls, Star Batallion is a great flight-sim package that is very arcade-like in execution at times, but offers solid twitch-gameplay and challenge, with great presentation and graphics.

    Speed Forge Extreme did a great job with executing with the controls, and the tilt was flawless along with the inclusion of touch controls; another yet flawless implementation.

    Fastar! is not what most would expect of an Action RPG, nor is it what most would expect from Kooistra having played his previous app store releases - admittedly, the game left me scratching my head at first and it took me several plays to warm to it. Set aside such expectations, however, and Fastar reveals itself to be an excellent casual action game, well worth the paltry price of admission.

    It's the closest thing to Mario Kart I've seen so far.

    Ash
    Though I suspect once you get involved with Ash, you won't be able to put it down until you see what happens next.

    PES 2010 is, at best, a good soccer game. There are a lot of feature and content problems that I know could have been nonexistent had Konami been more creative.

    Surprisingly one of the EA's best sports titles yet.

    Zombie Infection is a well-made zombie-shooter with high production values, great graphics, and an overall solid gameplay experience.

    Assault Squadron is a fantastic game. While I personally prefer twitchier controls, most players will not find them to be an issue so this concern really should be considered more of a personal preference.

    For those looking for some action won't find it here; you're better off in space with Gameloft's NOVA or fighting Italian soldiers in Assassin's Creed II.

    The Asphalt series are getting old. That fact is quite evident in this review, and it just doesn't feel any different from Asphalt 5.

    I'm totally bewildered as to why they didn't include online multiplayer, why they didn't add some more control options, and why they decided to take customization out.

    If you just can't live without some sort of sci-fi themed dual-stick shooter where you kill robots and there are different maps, it might be just the thing for you. But for my money, there are more exciting experiences available in this genre on the iOS platform.

    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.

    But once you start to get frustrated, thwarted, and far into the career mode, your appeal to the game just doesn't last. It's a game with potential, but it needs some substantial updates to reach it.

    I liked the first one and was looking for some improvement in terms of replay value, but I didn't exactly get it.

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

    It really is sad that Splatterhouse did not receive wider recognition during its time, because it was a good game for its time. Hell, probably even a great one. However, really all side-scrolling beat-em-up games boil down to the same essential gameplay mechanics, and this game is those mechanics at their most basic.

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

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

    Ultimately, Black Space is a fair title, but not up to snuff with either Galaxy On Fire or Star Pagga. If you've already completed those titles and you're looking for something new, Black Space may be worth your time.

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

    Blade Master is not the App Store's next killer RPG; it just doesn't have the polish necessary to reach such lofty heights. But there's depth to be found, a lengthy quest to be had, and it nails the RPG bases.

    On the whole, Blimp Attack is a good game, but it can get repetitive.

    No real mind-benders here; just a lot of pushing stones, stepping on pressure plates and the like.

    I wasn't too thrilled with my game experience, and it's failed to really hook me in.

    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.
