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

    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.

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

    The AI is slightly under the AI for FIFA 10.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
    • 73 Metascore

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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).
    • 70 Metascore

    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.

    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.

    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.
