    While it might not be the most innovative or original game in the world, King Oddball is still an awful lot of fun.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    In spite of its lack of coherency, Payback 2 HD is still an immensely entertaining experience.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Like its veggie protagonists, Grow Away is simple, satisfying, and good fun to throw around for an hour or two.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Snail Bob won't get your heart racing with its originality, art-style or presentation, but it is a very well designed physics-puzzler.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Right now it's not technically a game, but there's still a lot to like in Topia's world-building experiments.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Crazy Taxi is big, loud and crude, and it's certainly showing its age - but this smooth conversion is still extremely difficult to put down.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although it lacks the long-term appeal that many other PlayStation Mobile titles boast, Fuel Tiracas offers tense and challenging gameplay that is best sampled in short bursts.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A cute, casual time waster of a game that delivers fun, funk, and pocket-sized distraction on demand.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you don't own a portable device for playing Angry Birds, then this is a bumper package you'll want to invest in. Angry Birds aficionados need not apply though.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Funny and challenging, Stunt Star: The Hollywood Years will prove a worthy download for fans of the physics-based genre, but the intense difficulty of the later levels limits its appeal.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you liked the last Jewel Master game and want more, then you'll find Cradle of Egypt 2 a solid purchase.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Polished and preened as you'd expect from Gameloft, Zombiewood is an entertaining but ultimately forgettable ride.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Assassins Creed III Liberation isn't quite the poster child for Sony's neglected format that many were hoping for, but Vita owners should probably be grateful they get a dedicated adventure of their own. There's no telling whether the same will hold true this time next year.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid brawler, but one that does very little with the Tekken licence. If you want another Street Fighter-like scrapper, it's a solid purchase.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A little more polished than your average button masher, Wraithborne will appeal to some, but it's a little too generic to really set the world aflame.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A highly entertaining offering that'll absorb your free time in 90-second bursts and leave you wanting more. It's a shame, then, that it only has one main level to offer you.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Following a slow start, Take It Easy develops into a surprisingly involving and multi-faceted puzzle game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A breezy attempt at streamlining the classic JRPG, Penny Arcade's On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 offers some neat ideas but arguably doesn't go far enough in modernising the genre.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Good fun with a friend (or two), this innovative puzzler might be a bit much for those with less nimble fingers.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Coaster Crazy is clever and rewarding, but a finicky track editor and a lack of immediate feedback means only hardcore rollercoaster fanatics will stick with it for the long haul.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An unremarkable but effective endless-shooter designed around that compulsive coin-collecting free-to-play hook.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it doesn't redefine what a city builder can be, Gizmonauts does add a couple of new systems to the formula - looking sharp all the while.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    PS All-Stars Battle Royale plays around the Smash Bros formula, and comes away with a multiplayer experience that's enjoyable, but not essential.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A melting pot of ideas and abstract concepts, Arranger is sure to appeal to those looking for something a little different on their iOS device. It's just a shame that its zany genius is curbed slightly by some poor controls.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Violent and tough, Beatdown! won't be to everyone's tastes, but if you're a veteran of the 16bit era, it'll be right up your street.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Frustrating at times and vague to the point of being obtuse, Paper Mario: Sticker Star still shines where it counts.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Outlaw shoots first and asks questions later, but its entertaining brand of arcade gunplay and sympathetic approach to IAP make it strangely refreshing.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Strange, obtuse, and a little unfair, BreakQuest Extra Evolution is a more artistic take on the typical game of Breakout.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slick, accessible platform-puzzler with a satisfying emphasis on fast reactions and quick thinking.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's pouty, it's pink, it's pretty darn good - Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique is the game to get your non-gamer sister / daughter / niece this Christmas, and they'll never know you've snuck them a shockingly hardcore management game with excellent production values.
