    I don't know if it's my emphatic love that spills over onto the new game or the fact that the core game was so perfectly carried over into the new game that makes me so thrilled to play. Whatever you want to call it, it's pure magic to me.

    I'm just going to say the game will last you a long time. It has taken me a little close to forever to complete the first city, let along the other 5 or 6 cities. By the end of the game, I don't think anyone would complain about the game being too short or too lacking.

    iBlast Moki is the most complete game I have ever encountered. Period. There's no other game that rivals in quality and quantity, a mixture that's absolutely destined to be awesome.

    Gameloft truly outdid themselves with this game, and I was totally blown away by NOVA.

    It's awesome, the graphics are great, and the gameplay isn't too shabby. Sure, there's room for improvement. And if you didn't like the first one, you definitely won't like this. But honestly, compared to the competition, you really can't ask for more.

    Creating multiplayer match ups with friends is as simple as emailing your friends the link to your match and when accepted the game begins.

    Cut the Rope is appealing in price, aesthetics, and gameplay. What more could you ask for? If you haven't picked up this title yet, I suggest you to hop yourself over to the App Store and pick it up.

    Plants Vs. Zombies goes beyond the game, becoming something more like a phenomenon.

    With the care and consideration that this game obviously had during development, it is for sure a must buy that shows off the capabilities of the platform.

    Serves as a classic example of how well a physics game can work on the platform, it's addictiveness will see you through to the end, it's charm is almost unparalleled, and perhaps above all it is unique, a rare achievement in these modern times.

    Let's Golf 2 is still a solid sequel to one of the best games on the App Store. While there are some errors and flaws with the overall game, I'm still having fun with it.

    But I'm a sucker for space shooters and now it's turned me completely on my head. I've been mining the app store for gems, and in Space Miner I've struck pay dirt. Like comets, games like this are rarely seen. Don't let this one pass you by.

    Unrivaled in the App Store. There are no racing games like it, and if you're even remotely into driving, then Real Racing 2 HD is for you.

    Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus is one of the most complete and best games I have ever played on my device, and with such a complete online multiplayer experience and a solid single player mode, I can't see any other game really topping this, atleast for a while.

    The controls in Tilt to Live are flawless and I had no problems performing the incredibly precise movements the game requires.

    Galaxy on Fire 2 is a must. Even if you don't normally play these kinds of games, you should buy it. It proves that your iPhone IS a gaming platform and perfect to show of to your unbelieving friends.

    In short, this is the first superb new iOS game of the new year.

    Mirror's Edge for the iPad, while extremely short, is one of the best titles the iPad gaming market has to offer so far.

    As ridiculous an idea as it sounds, Sword & Poker is a really fun game, and one that I find easy to recommend as a purchase.

    Dodonpachi Resurrection is the best top-down shooter I've ever played, and being a newbie at bullet-hell shooters, I've had a ton of fun with it.

    In summary, if you have liked games like the classic Doodle Jump or the newer Bird Strike, you will love Parachute Ninja.

    I would like to see some improvements in speed and multiplayer match-ups, but other than that, Shadow Era is a game that you won't want to miss out on. Plus, it's free. You can't really get any cheaper than that.

    Small annoyances aside, Rimelands: Hammer of Thor is simply one of the highest quality traditional role-playing game experiences available on the app store. It's tough as nails, but the combat have you coming back for more.

    Flight Control HD is one of the first games that I cannot find a fault with.

    Modern Combat 3 is absolutely brilliant, and I find myself continually playing the online multiplayer everyday. The single player is also quite robust and diverse, giving Modern Combat 3 a well-balanced gameplay between shooting bad guys and mini-games, such as shooting soldiers on an AC-130.

    Dead Space isn't a game that particularly stood out and isn't something that's a no-brainer Must Have in my eyes. The production values are high, and EA did a really nice job with this one. I just wasn't exactly addicted to it, and it never really grasped me from the start. But the playing atmosphere and graphics are phenomenal, and the game as a whole is quite professional.

    Currently the best the App Store has to offer. It has a few problems like I mentioned above, but the epic storyline, breathtaking graphics, and sweet battle background music makes this a game that's unrivaled.

    Aralon is quite simply the best RPG on the App Store. I can't really say enough about it, but man, Galoobeth and Crescent Moon have really outdone themselves.

    But if you look past the pretty fluff and the shiny-ness of your new toy, you'll find that Infinity Blade is really just the same thing over and over again. BUT, that same thing over and over again is oddly appealing… somewhat like the "same thing over and over again" mechanism of Fruit Ninja, Flight Control, etc. And for that reason, there's really no other rating for this than the Must Have.
