    9mm
    9mm includes some improved voice-acting, great online multiplayer, an interesting storyline, and an overall action-packed adventure that is sure to entice third-person shooter fans. Just note that the game isn't for everyone, and I personally thought the amount of language in this game was really unnecessary.

    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.

    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 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.

    Angry Birds has a lot going for it, but is fundamentally flawed in execution.

    It's a great concept hindered by the lack of content and high price.

    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.

    In summary, if you want a dual-stick shooter, you can do a lot better than Pirate's Treasure.

    Split/Second is certainly a nice change from the more pure sim style racers out there, but it's defining feature lacks legs for long-term enjoyment.

    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.

    The developers should find the time to fiddle around with the difficulty, as that's the part that's holding this game back. Everything else, though, was definitely impressive.

    Hardcore point and click adventure lovers will love this game, but with some of the difficulties in the touch controls and inability to backtrack to gather missed items, new point and click adventurers should not choose this as their first attempt at the genre.

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

    I wasn't exactly pleased with the generic material of the game, but it's an overall, well-done game.

    And while Battle of Puppets has some positives, it's mostly draped in shallow gameplay.

    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).

    A lengthy experience at a reasonable price.

    As a dual-stick shooter, Catacombs fails because it's not frantic enough. As an action game, it fails because the combat isn't very interesting. As an RPG, it fails because it's not deep enough. As an adventure and a game of exploration, it fails because there's no incentive to progress and nothing new to discover as you go.

    It feels almost the same as last years. But hey, if you're a diehard football fan like me, there's no way you're not picking this up.

    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.

    Robot Unicorn Attack is a highly-addictive game that could have been better with the implementation of online leaderboards and some sort of competition.

    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.

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

    But I must give credit where credit is due: if you're dying for another racer, GT Racing is solid.

    The game is short on lasting appeal, and leans too heavily on MiniGore, but is nonetheless worth a look. A dual-stick stick shooter for casual gamers, Guerilla Bob is best taken in short spurts over time. Hardcore players tending to devour games in one or two sittings will quickly tear through the game and leave it in their dust.

    Bottom line is, there's little to no improvement.

    Soccer Superstars is a fun, fun game that I enjoy. They got that part of the game down, but once it comes to the technical stuff, the game seems to fall apart.

    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.

    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.

    Ultimately, Super Mega Worm is an enjoyable experience after the initial accommodation-period for the controls. While the upgrades provide incentive for replayability, the rather one-dimensional nature of the game keeps it at a "worth a look" recommendation. And remember to recycle kids. The Wyrm is watching you.
