    While not terrible, Zoo Tycoon 2 suffers from a lack of sheen that creeps like dry rot into the foundations of the game, dulling the whole experience.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fussy controls and a bizarre battle system render Across Age nothing more than an average anachronism.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A few tweaks and Russian Dancing Men could be the rhythm-action game to beat on iOS. As it stands, it's too flawed and frustrating to recommend.

    An interesting attempt at a touchscreen FPS, The Lawless is too short and too linear for its own good.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Perhaps a little more style over substance, Raft Pirates is a building, battling and boating game with a big chunk of style.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A pleasantly familiar taste of the kind of physics puzzlers we used to see in the early days of the App Store, Salt & Pepper doesn't add enough meaty substance to the recipe.

    Gorgeous-looking Mario & Sonic goes for gold with multiplayer, despite stumbling across the finish line with a few lame events, the odd control issue and only moderately entertaining solo play.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The foundations of a great survival game are here, but it currently feels a bit ‘style over substance' and too ruthless, even if you're a fan of insanely hard arcade games.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Playable and polished as always, Madden NFL 09 doesn't gain the franchise any yardage and fails to address some old control issues.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A half-decent RTS that only partially embraces the strengths of its source material and suffers from irritating performance and control issues.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    1849 is a refreshingly straight-up city-builder with a snappy mission-based structure, but the route to success can feel a little restrictive and one-note at times.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dark Day LA offers anarchic asymmetrical gameplay for two, but it's a slight offering.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Mega Jump 2 isn't particularly original, and it's 'save' system chips away at the experience, but this is an enjoyable descendant of Doodle Jump all the same.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    For existing fans of trading card games, this is an addictive package offering potentially hours of exciting play. Everyone else may strongly disagree.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a nice idea here, but the cumbersome controls mean Back to Bed gets tiring pretty quick.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you're not a fan of the original, you'd be best to give this muddled revamp a miss.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An urban setting gives Act of War: Urban Defense appeal, but its lack of originality and short length ensure that it quickly gets lost in the fog of war.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This sequel lacks the charm of many of its puzzler rivals, but still offers plenty of fiendish challenges to solve if you can overlook the sterile artwork.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Patient players might enjoy this cute action-puzzler, but control and design issues will leave others burning with rage.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It might not have the staying power of the best games, but there's fun to be had in Edge of the World.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite being comprehensive in terms of content, Chuck's Challenge is too dated to really stand out.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An attractive and fun adventure-puzzler that simply doesn’t justify the high price of its levels with its generic gameplay, even if you're a fan of the cartoon.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's presented quite well, but One Piece Treasure Cruise still feels like something we've all played before.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An urban setting gives Act of War: Urban Defense appeal, but its lack of originality and short length ensure that it quickly gets lost in the fog of war
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a decent game here, but Machines at War 3 is far from original, and a little too rough around the edges to wholeheartedly recommend.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite a fresh and nuanced movement system, this endless faller is somewhat spoiled by a miserly approach to dishing out rewards and incentives.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Wonky mechanics and no multiplayer support at launch mean that this boardgame may end up gathering dust in the cupboard until an update is deployed.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Little Legends is a cute, simple mobile-based MMORPG, but its energy system and server issues drag down the experience.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    To-Fu 2? It's barely To-Fu 1.2. A major disappointment
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Twenty years at the top and Madden is faltering badly – this 'update' offers little in terms of new content and should only be considered if you've passed on the previous PSP instalments.
