    Gorgeous looking and a joy to play for flick gamers and NFL fans alike, it's just a shame so little has been added to the sequel beyond IAP-heavy bonuses.

    If you can grit your teeth and take its serious difficulty on the chin, Fractured Soul is a marvellous puzzle-platformer well worth the download.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well-designed, wonderfully frantic climber that's thoroughly enjoyable despite doing little to set itself apart from its genre bedfellows.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A gorgeous, fast-paced rhythm game that feels a bit samey if you don't shell out a lot of money.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lili is a gorgeous game with lots of personality and bundles of charm. But as a game it's rather insubstantial and struggles to hold your attention for long.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A physics puzzler that twangs sharply off the string and adds a fun, if macabre, time mechanic into familiar gameplay.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lunar: Silver Star Story Touch is a charming JRPG with plenty of nice touches and an enjoyable story, but it's tarnished a little by poor controls.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ecolibrium provides bite-size play that needs to be periodically checked up upon rather than taken in hour-long chunks. It's good fun, but unless you're packing a 3G PS Vita, it's not the best title for when you're out and about on the road.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable little title perfect for scratching your mobile arcade gaming itch.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A relentlessly stylish sensory assault that's so in tune with its underlying mechanics that it works, despite the game's obvious flaws.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another endless-runner that does everything perfectly well, Amazing Runner doesn't quite live up to its title, but it's entertaining all the same.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Boulder Dash-XL 3D iterates wonderfully on the 80s original, but refuses to ever ramp the excitement levels up to the max.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
