    Like a dodgy pilot episode, Stargate SG1: Unleashed is badly written, poorly paced, and really quite dull.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The iOS port of Liberation Maiden is a little prettier than the 3DS original, but the same faults remain firmly in place - joined by some irritating touchscreen controls.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Like the home console version of Injustice: Gods Among Us? Want to unlock some trinkets for it and don't mind trudging through a repetitive fighter with minimal skill requirements? Then, this is for you... weirdo.

    • 40 Critic Score
    Gangstar Vegas is a surprisingly unpleasant game that's a bit too broken and a bit too hollow to recommend.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Gloomy Hollow manages to live up to its name, but not in a good way.
    • 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.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Slow to start and laggy at best, NFL Pro 2014 is more disappointing than an afternoon spent watching the Pro Bowl.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A decent enough puzzling sequel that's ruined by an overbearing and unpleasant payment system, Where's My Water? 2 is a soggy mess.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Measured against the fun of previous Madden mobile titles, Madden NFL 25 is more disappointing than a fumble in the end zone.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Random Runners adds nothing new to the auto-runner genre, except frustration, unfair design, and grinding for currency.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A dull and uninspired mess of a physics puzzler, Rabbids Big Bang is one to avoid.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An average slingshot physics game spoiled by a pitiful fantasy veneer and an irritating freemium payment structure
    • 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.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A muddled mess of a game that wastes its licence, Hot Wheels World's Best Driver is one to avoid.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A port with potential ruined by obtrusively implemented IAPs, Tales of Phantasia is only for those with deep pockets or saint-like levels of patience.
    • 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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An occasionally bright game that's beaten into submission by difficulty spikes and shouty IAPs.
    • 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.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    You never feel in time with the music, the scattershot levels will infuriate those looking for their next auto-runner, and the IAPs are horrendous.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A basic and stale RPG that sows few seeds of flair and inventiveness over its vast and tiresome expanse.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Kazook is ultimately about as appealing as your dad dancing at your own party. And nobody wants that.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Although Double Shot won't necessarily disappoint fans of the series, and vintage games generally, it's an extraordinarily lazy sequel that trades on the moderate success of a 20-year-old arcade game.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A rushed production that, regrettably yet predictably, emerges as a substandard game of a substandard film.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A dreadful mishmash of mini-games, MinDStorm has almost no redeeming features and instead of making you smarter will simply frustrate you.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    You may squeeze some entertainment out of The Settlers in the early stages but its bugs and inconsistencies will eventually break your spirit.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Over-ambitious 3D free-roaming stunt-a-thon which ends up being just hard to control, repetitive and completely unsuited to DS.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Pint-sized Picassos may be enticed by Paint by DS but it would be a crying shame if they were to neglect real-world artistic endeavours in favour of this limp product.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A weak collection of badly implemented mini-games, you'd be better off paying out for a seaside Punch and Judy show than a session with Carnival Funfair Games.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    While it's not actually broken or violently offensive, Hurry Up Hedgehog! is one of the most listless bits of shovelware going. Get the original board game if you must, but give this a miss.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Saddled with poor visuals, ineffective controls and a complete lack of engaging content, Tony Hawk's Motion is a crushing disappointment .
