    • 70 Critic Score
    Frustrating at times, but saved by a clever concept, smart design, and the simple fact that it's entirely free.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Tank Riders 2 is an accomplished casual blaster with an invitingly chunky world in which to trundle around, but its thirsty IAP system spoils the mayhem.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An artsy, hypnotic little curiosity that's as slight as a summer's breeze.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though Gunship X's shooting action isn't deep or varied, it's intense for as long as it lasts.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Glacier Rush only takes a few moments to learn, but it that's all the time it needs to get its hooks in to you.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A very busy game with so much going on that some might be overwhelmed. Others are likely to become hopeless addicts.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An extremely testing puzzle game that demands on-the-spot logical thinking rather than gut reactions, PQ2 is an intriguing experience backed up with loads of content.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A simple shooter with a big heart, Glorkian Warrior: Trials of Glork might not be the most impressive game out there, but it's well worth a look.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever, difficult shooter with enough interesting ideas to keep it fresh.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An affectionate ode to Pac-Man, Naughty Bear is worth a play for the hilariously inventive deaths that dominate its gameplay.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Clever, pretty platforming that's let down by repetition and slightly flaky controls.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Employing a relative simple mechanic, trading card game Arena 9 offers a lot of tactical variation, which is both a strength and weakness.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although we'd like better replay options, This Is Not a Test is well-presented and offers plenty of interesting story-based choices.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Galaxy Express adds charm to a classic puzzle scenario.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Convincingly crossing dancing with beat-'em-up, Draglade is a fun, frenetic and hugely likeable DS B-movie.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A visually sumptuous RPG that's equal parts accessible and obtuse, Immortal Odyssey will make for a pleasant supplement to your gaming diet, but might prove too lightweight to fully satisfy by itself.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The cat selection is disappointingly limited, and it will be very familiar to players of the earlier entries, but this is shinier, more feature packed, and - of course - three-dimensional than any of the previous Nintendogs games.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A neat pushing together of ideas that pretty much comes off. Puzzle to the Center of the Earth definitely has its moments.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Soul Calibur is a fantastic fighting game, which is harder to recommend than it should be thanks to a high price tag and the omission of any multiplayer modes.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The cat selection is disappointingly limited, and it will be very familiar to players of the earlier entries, but this is shinier, more feature packed, and - of course - three-dimensional than any of the previous Nintendogs games.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Shadow Wars is a turn-based strategy that's easy on newcomers but with enough depth for veterans of the genre to enjoy as well.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The harsh AI difficulty will diminish its appeal, but 7th Guest: Infection remains a well-presented and interesting boardgame.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    You've played this game before, albeit with a more barbaric theme, though that shouldn't stop you giving it a go if you're after more strategy-management action.

    Full of ups and downs, 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa is far from a perfect football sim, but does a good enough job of replicating the tournament.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Sims Medieval is a good Sims game, but it doesn't bring much new to the series.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid RTS title that would definitely have benefited from a bigger budget and more challenging difficulty gameplay.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A deceptively compelling roguelike with a clever chess-based theme, but boy is it rough around the edges.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are some nice ideas here, but it can sometimes be a little too fiddly.
