    There's fun to be had here, but Hollywood Monsters has you reaching for the hint button too often to be considered a classic.

    A shooter that's a lot more hit than miss, Battle Supremacy has enough going for it to keep you playing for a good long while.

    Nostalgia stirs memories of classic role-playing with its turn-based battles and familiar narrative themes, yet explores a new horizon with fun airship battles and a sense of adventure.

    Despite good looks and lots of variety, The Simpsons Arcade isn't as fun or as funny as it aspires to be.

    • 50 Critic Score
    City of Secrets is attractive and welcoming to newcomers, but the plodding story, forgettable characters, weak puzzles, and atrocious voice-acting ensure it's destined to stay a secret.

    Relic Rush is one of the most stripped-back platformers you'll ever play, but the fact that it still feels immensely satisfying and rewarding to play is a testament to its thoughtful design.

    Like a martini with too much vermouth, Secret Agent Clank throws in more than its fair share of bizarre levels and mediocre stretches of gameplay for it to be a refreshing experience.

    Excellent for younger gamers, Bionicle Heroes is a well-designed and enjoyable shooter, although more experienced players might consider it lacking in challenges.

    Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is what happens when a classic is ported too often.

    A showpiece for AR technology, this workout for your brain (and, occasionally, your body) is a downloadable treat no self-respecting Vita-owning puzzle fan should be without.

    Shift 2: Unleashed is bigger and better than its predecessor, with a lot more variety of races and excellent single-player career mode.

    Even Two-Face wouldn't leave this choice to chance - LEGO Batman delivers a now familiar adventure, but one that is packed with fun characters and provides much long-term enjoyment.

    While it's possible to just dive in with the traditional play mechanic of score-as-many-goals-as-you-can-in-90-minutes, the game's central dynamic demands a little more effort from those looking for victory.

    Excellent design ensures there's nothing funky with the gameplay in this simple, enjoyable platformer.

    Rock Band Reloaded lays out a nice set of features and satisfying gameplay, despite fumbling Facebook integration.

    • 80 Critic Score
    A mammoth package indeed, Jet Set Go takes the 'greatest hits' approach, and manages to deliver a fair yet fiercely addictive time-management sim.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A solidly presented, smartly designed construction-based puzzler that's easy to recommend.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A bright and humorous point-and-click adventure with excellent dialogue but frustrating gameplay - just like they used to make 'em.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Tough but ultimately rewarding, Defense Technica is a surprisingly deep but often cruel tower defence title.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although it has a few rough edges, Skate It nevertheless ollies over the competition and triumphantly kick-flips its way to the top of the DS skateboarding pile.

    A marked improvement earns FIFA 07 a toehold in the DS Premiership, but it'll need to work harder next time to keep moving up.

    Hardcore strategists will be disappointed by the lack of challenge, but casual players may warm to Eufloria HD's tranquil approach to commanding and conquering.

    Initial impressions of Smart As are good, but the game rapidly shows itself to be a brain training title lacking any in-depth planning.

    • 70 Critic Score
    With an endearing art-style and fine puzzling action, Sushi Mushi nevertheless has a few rough edges.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Another great platformer for the Vita, Kung Fu Rabbit may not be the best-looking game on the device, but it's certainly among the most challenging.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Improved mini-games help Off the Rails elevate itself higher than its predecessor, but we still have issues with such a bipolar approach to the theme park genre.

    It's not a game, but as a neat virtual guitar Jam Sessions provides great sounds, a tons of musical options and the ability to record your own tracks.

    On Tour Decades brings better songs and a slightly more comprehensive Guitar Hero experience to Guitar Hero on DS. There are still issues with the comfort and practicalities of its guitar fret peripheral, but the most rousing songs are still a lot of fun to play.
