    Unattractive and clunky, Painkiller Purgatory is a shooter well behind the times.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Looks good, but over-complicated controls and needlessly lengthy bouts mar Rocky Balboa, making it a real test of stamina and patience.

    Unattractive and clunky, Painkiller Purgatory is a shooter well behind the times.
    • 56 Metascore

    More flawed than fun, Star Wars: Imperial Academy is a mess of a shooter that fails to do justice to ngmoco's FPS track record or the Star Wars universe.

    • 40 Critic Score
    A feast for dragons, but a pitiable spread for the rest of us. Tasty visuals and concept let down by poor implementation.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There simply isn't enough to do, especially for a 3DS game. Throw in poor dialogue and barely evident stereoscopic 3D effects, and Bird Mania 3D just isn't worth your time.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A disappointing effort that manages to stall on nearly every count from lacklustre racing to limited content to technical issues preventing play.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Like its stars, High School Musical 2 is pretty to begin with, but quickly becomes annoying and repetitive.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This conceptually solid music-based tunnel racer gets it all wrong in the execution, with disorientating track layouts and dull gameplay.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Grind-filled hands-off gameplay plus a licence with barely any traction in English speaking countries does not a good card battler make.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A potentially fantastic futuristic racer that completely fails to get the controls right, and as a result becomes a real challenge to enjoy.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Lacking cohesion and decent collision detection, Marvel Kapow! fails to land a decent blow.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Dungeon Hearts Blitz is just another Puzzle & Dragons clone - and not a particularly good one, at that.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A sparse, clunky golf game with a twist that fails to add anything meaningfully new to the genre
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Just like Fix-It Felix, Wreck-It Ralph on 3DS is short, plain, and not a lot of fun to be around.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    BlitzKeep is way more frustrating than fun.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An occasionally bright game that's beaten into submission by difficulty spikes and shouty IAPs.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Novel and at times rather pretty, yet also banal and ugly, only die-hard fans of LCD games need take on this disappointing downloadable.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Neither a fun trashy experience or a enjoyable casual game, Pillowfight Girls is a failure on many levels.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    As gorgeous as it looks, and as clever as it sounds, Wide Sky plays like a mess.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    One Tap Desert Hero is a bit broken, but a far bigger issue is how tedious it becomes.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    While fun in short bursts, the DS version of Cake Mania lacks depth and overly repeats on you. Burp.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A pretty atmosphere and reliance on nostalgia don't make up for the simple gameplay, low amount of content, and buggy nature of this release.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A charmingly presented series of real-world fetch quests for your legs, sadly lacking focus and any real sense of reward for your efforts.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Without a strong grasp of the basics to make up for the improvements it tries and fails to implement, The Drowning is simply a boring shooter, with invasive IAPs, and so-so controls.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A straight-up port of the PSP RPG with no efforts taken to improve the experience, Romance Dawn is not a journey many One Piece fans will want to take.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A poorly constructed, shallow, and boring football management game that can't be saved by an underwhelming social element.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    For all of its attractive window dressing, Blood Brothers plays about as nicely as cardboard tastes.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Like a bowl of volatile oatmeal, APB Retribution manages to be unpredictable and bland at the same time.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A predictably shallow, cynical tie-in that lays the IAPs on as thick as the action.
