    • 20 Critic Score
    Shoddy conversions of shoddy conversions – some of these weren't worth playing in the first place, let alone again.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A painfully simple pair of ideas that are executed poorly and endlessly recycled.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    If the thought of shooting innocent woodland animals in slo-mo through X-ray specs doesn't make you flinch from the game, the freemium costs probably will.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A sad and sloppy platformer with little to recommend it, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project is best left to the annals of history.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Random Runners adds nothing new to the auto-runner genre, except frustration, unfair design, and grinding for currency.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mediocre stealth action is the order of the day in this forgettable sequel.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    While fun in short bursts, the DS version of Cake Mania lacks depth and overly repeats on you. Burp.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Without a strong grasp of the basics to make up for the improvements it tries and fails to implement, The Drowning is simply a boring shooter, with invasive IAPs, and so-so controls.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    WALL-E doesn't annoy or offend, but looks terrible and doesn't entertain either, and that leaves it only fit for landfill.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Ruh-roh! Another "Don't worry, the children will never see past the licence to realise the game is rubbish" attempt unmasked.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    You never feel in time with the music, the scattershot levels will infuriate those looking for their next auto-runner, and the IAPs are horrendous.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Speedboat Paradise is equally uninspiring and unpleasant, and the tiresome races simply aren't worth all the grinding and waiting.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Good-looking but ultimately vacuous – and I'm not talking about the celebs - this 2D shooter is a one-dimensional disappointment.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    What was a great console game almost 20 years ago simply doesn't work on a touchscreen.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The worst PSP version of Need for Speed to date, Need for Speed Undercover feels like a muddled attempt to revive the spirit of past glories.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Whether it's stealth, driving or shooting, the game feels limited and unengaging, is hampered by unresponsive controls and completely lacks the necessary polish of a modern production.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Keep your coffers shut and do not contemplate putting this in your UMD drive – tis utter rubbish, for sure.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There simply isn't enough to do, especially for a 3DS game. Throw in poor dialogue and barely evident stereoscopic 3D effects, and Bird Mania 3D just isn't worth your time.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    As gorgeous as it looks, and as clever as it sounds, Wide Sky plays like a mess.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A bland and boring shooter with no surprises or fresh ideas within, R.I.P. Rally is an ugly shambles.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A dreary button masher that's neither interesting or exciting enough to recommend.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Spy Hunter's poor handling and dire visuals make this one of the least impressive PS Vita titles to date. Even long-term Spy Hunter devotees will struggle to get behind this one.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Too easy and too slow, aside from the wonderful visual design, there's very little in AMF Bowling Pinbusters! to sustain your interest. Lack of touchscreen play only serves to add to the disappointment.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A remake of an old WarioWare mini-game, Paper Plane is simple, frustrating and almost completely without merit.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Ugly, cumbersome to control, and lacking fun, Resident Evil Mercenaries VS. casts a dark spot on Capcom's survival-horror franchise.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Less an adolescent social simulation and more a lesson in pandering, Brooktown High fails to make the grade.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Although Double Shot won't necessarily disappoint fans of the series, and vintage games generally, it's an extraordinarily lazy sequel that trades on the moderate success of a 20-year-old arcade game.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    While it's not actually broken or violently offensive, Hurry Up Hedgehog! is one of the most listless bits of shovelware going. Get the original board game if you must, but give this a miss.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A bland experienced robbed of energy and excitement by identikit missions and limited level design.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A disappointing effort that manages to stall on nearly every count from lacklustre racing to limited content to technical issues preventing play.
