    • 50 Critic Score
    A cute tower-building game that does its best to hide its tedium under cute graphics and simple mini-games.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Unrelentingly difficult, Mad Skills BMX doesn't offer up enough fun-shaped rewards to make the slog through its levels worthwhile.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A standard endless-runner that's hampered by its dodgy controls, lack of social features, cheap deaths, and painfully unfunny humour. Verdict? Jog on.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Dull, repetitive, and just not that funny, Vote!!! won't keep you entertained no matter your political persuasion.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While there's nothing painfully bad about Supermagical, the sum of its parts add up to a mediocre whole.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A nicely presented side-scrolling shooter that's undermined by flawed core mechanics and slow-paced, excitement-free action.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While it might be a nice idea, Earn to Die is an oddly uninspiring experience that prizes slog over everything else.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Guardian Cross presents itself like a strategic card battler mixed with a classic JRPG, but it lacks any of the depth necessary to pull such a thing off.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Zaxxon Escape takes a classic shoot-'em-up property and completely changes it to a mediocre flavour-of-the-month endless-runner.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A reasonably inventive take on the one-finger puzzler that's let down by monotonous, uninspired level design.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Sub-par controls and uneven presentation keep 2K's NBA series from finding the net for another year.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Hard to play, unexciting, and a little soulless: though some may find Liberation Maiden's style enough to excuse its other faults, this is undoubtedly Suda 51's worst output to date.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Borderlands Legends is a complete waste of a stellar IP, offering clunky action-strategy fare and paying mere lip service to the series's core strengths.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A great idea that brings two distinct genres together in a clever fashion. Sadly, though, Crossword Dungeon just doesn't know what to do with them after that.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A trip back to the bad old days of mediocre film tie-ins, Wreck-it Ralph isn't abysmal, but it's unlikely it'll keep you entertained for very long.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Fun for a few minutes but repetitive and boring after prolonged play, Ghostbusters: Paranormal Blast's excellent presentation can't save it from mediocrity.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It looks the business in screenshots, yet SpinCraft's half-decent 3D landscapes can't hide the tedious design and irritatingly floaty controls.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A cynical reskin of Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth will be a disappointment to Tolkien fans and experienced freemium city-builders alike.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Putting forth a few good ideas before wringing them dry through overuse, Real Heroes: Firefighter 3D is worth a go if you find it on fire sale. Otherwise, don't waste your time.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Buggy and unpolished, Chronovolt isn't worth your time, no matter how many times your turn the clock back.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A broken version of one of the finest electro-rollerblade games ever made, Jet Set Radio is a disappointing coda to a gloriously multi-coloured legacy.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A fun concept that feels a bit rushed in execution. Keep an eye on it for future updates, as it might be a good game someday.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While there might be flashes of a decent game, more often than not Last Knight is disappointing.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion had the potential to be a neo-old skool classic, but the elements taken from the Epic Mickey series stale those from its Castle of Illusion pedigree, leading to a game that's slower than Toby Tortoise.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A merely adequate Temple Run clone in pretty much every way, Run'n'Gun passes the time but fails to ignite.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The core implementation of placing trampolines to bounce your pangolin up-screen is just a little too unwieldy to heartily recommend. Nevertheless, the art's great and the physics are spot on.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's a decent puzzle-platformer in here, but it takes too long to grind out the game's currency to unlock later level sets and see it all.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While there are occasional flashes of what might have been, Tin Man Can is too bland to recommend.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While there are some standout moments in Cracking Sands, all too often it feels like it isn't quite finished.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Truly unforgivable technical issues mask an otherwise run-of-the-mill action adventure game. The toys are cool and all, but the game containing them simply isn't.
