    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.

    Typically, Crayola Treasure Adventures is a far better colouring-book than it is a game. There's very little range, and the mini-games won't hold your kids' attention for long, but if you're sick of losing crayons down the back of the couch this may be for you.

    A true video game nasty in all the wrong ways, Splatterhouse is a poor conversion of a poor game, with shoddy virtual controls, one-dimensional beat-'em-up action and plain bad graphics.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Touch Battle Tank 3D has tanks, but not a whole lot else. Avoid, then avoid some more.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Repetitive action and a largely vacuous storyline do nothing to disguise the fact that DJ Rivals is essentially an advert for its Facebook-based big brother Nightclub City.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    If the thought of shooting innocent woodland animals in slo-mo through X-ray specs doesn't make you flinch from the game, the freemium costs probably will.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's a middling idea here, but it's not executed very well.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A jumble of ideas that don't work very well together or apart, this is one to avoid.
    • 33 Metascore

    It's less to do with being the Man of Steel, more a rusty version of the tin man – because this is a game without a heart.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A bizarrely stilted, poorly executed 2D platformer that fails to match its sharp art with anything like the same standard of basic mechanics.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A passionless take on a great license. Only but the most battle hardened Call of Duty fans should even consider taking this one down to the range.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A novel release for sure, but one only the most steadfast Japanophiles will enjoy.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A bland casual puzzler with an irritatingly imprecise control system, FreeDum would seriously bug you if it wasn't so instantly forgettable.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Naruto: Path of the Ninja may star a sprightly yellow-haired youth, but its gameplay is old and tired. Even fans of the manga are going to have a hard time choking down this stale piece of gaming.

    Forget the freemium fluff: Real Football 2012's big problem is that its attempt to simulate the beautiful game is left sorely wanting, with jagged and jerky matches undermining all the social slop Gameloft's slapped on top.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    If it weren't so unfairly difficult, Chopper I would be a good-looking but average-playing shmup. If you're really craving a super-tough shooter, this might barely fill that gap.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Escape from Laville 2 is a poorly-made adventure game of interest only to any Escape from Laville fans out there.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Offering no discernible improvement over its lacklustre predecessor and paling in comparison to more accomplished DS football titles, PES 2008 is best relegated to bench-warming duty.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    With fundamentally broken combat and nothing new to bring to the table, Colossus Command is a boring and insipid retread of all that's come before it.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Ruh-roh! Another "Don't worry, the children will never see past the licence to realise the game is rubbish" attempt unmasked.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Humdrum presentation mingles with a bare minimum of gameplay to spawn a unique experiment, but little else.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Perfection contains a solid central mechanic and it's nicely presented, but the unadorned slicing wears thin very quickly.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A bland experienced robbed of energy and excitement by identikit missions and limited level design.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A short, undemanding romp through the dressings of an infinitely better console title.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An average slingshot physics game spoiled by a pitiful fantasy veneer and an irritating freemium payment structure
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite its shortcomings, not so much a bad game as just a boring (and buggy) one that lacks bite.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A game that leaves you lost and confused from the start, Violett just doesn't make any sense.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An abstract, atmospheric exploration adventure near-ruined by a breathtakingly ill-conceived iOS port.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An uninspired endless chase that never quite gets out of the starting blocks, Turbolab Pursuit has its moments, but they're few and far between.
