    A dull little game that makes being a deity feel decidedly average, Fury of the Gods isn't worth your time.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Even if you leave to one side its overtly aggressive freemium pricing scheme, Plants War is still an unpleasant and bland slog.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Breed creatures, collect different types of that creature, ensure they're happy, get frustrated with wait timers, exit, delete.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Danger Boat is a perfectly pleasant, but completely uneventful entry in a very tired genre. There are at least seventeen zillion better endless-runners on the App Store.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A bit more entertaining than reading a textbook, only not as effective. Stick to Minna no Nihongo and Japanesepod101.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Impressive handling and a decent package of race events completely undermined by technical issues and clumsy execution.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    League of Mages pits you into one-on-one magical combat with real players, but its flat grind-heavy gameplay lacks any hint of magic.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A game this beautiful deserves a lot more than the rambling plot and uninspired gameplay that brings it to an almost immediate halt.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Like a dodgy pilot episode, Stargate SG1: Unleashed is badly written, poorly paced, and really quite dull.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A painfully simple pair of ideas that are executed poorly and endlessly recycled.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Fairly bland but nicely illustrated shooty zombie shenanigans, largely wrecked by dreadful controls and an inevitably dispiriting upgrade system.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Though it captures the tone of the series well, Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is an otherwise lifeless title with little in it to recommend.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Like a blackout at the Super Bowl, NFL Quarterback 13 leaves you wondering where all the football gameplay went.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The release of Urban Champion as a 3D Classic makes us wonder if Nintendo has gone stark raving mad.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A sluggish, un-fun endless-runner that adds little to the template, Riot Runners is better off avoided.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The components for a decent game are present and correct, but many of the good points are hacked to death by poor level design, frustrating gating, and unresponsive controls.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's a neat idea here, but Moto Joe just isn't good enough to see it through.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Random Runners adds nothing new to the auto-runner genre, except frustration, unfair design, and grinding for currency.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Good-looking but ultimately vacuous – and I'm not talking about the celebs - this 2D shooter is a one-dimensional disappointment.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A sad and sloppy platformer with little to recommend it, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project is best left to the annals of history.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Even with a few added features thrown into the mix, at its core Dawn Tanks is pretty much just another 'artillery' game.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Paper Toss with an oddly shaped ball, Rugby Kicks is simple fun for the first ten minutes, and simply dull thereafter.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Dysfunctional controls, major audio quirks, and other assorted flaws put NCAA Football HD at the bottom of the league.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Servicable, if typical, strategy mechanics are ruined by an aggressive free to play model and terrible presentation, although pass and play is worth a brief try.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mixing cute with boring, Tamagotchi Connection Corner Shop quickly becomes so routine you should be paid £5 an hour to play it.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite a wave of innovations manages to be less enjoyable than the near decade old GBC version. Less of the Wacky and more of the wack.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A shallow and unconvincing portrayal of a virtual life, Hatch has about half an hour of content, but days and days of repetitive and unrewarding chores.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A boring, tired rehash of a much better game, Grindcore isn't worth your time.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    More roll-playing than role-playing, this game promises much and delivers little more than a quick RPG combat fix.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A nicely executed comic book stapled to a sub-standard action-platformer, Bravoman: Binja Bash has its priorities all wrong.
