    • 60 Critic Score
    Alice has visual flair, but she's a vapid romp, with platforming gameplay weighed down by its puzzles rather than uplifted by them.

    Armada: Galactic War has the makings of a fine online real-time strategy game, but it�s simply not ready for battle yet.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Too similar to the fluffy one's previous outings, Battle Bears -1 consists of overly familiar, repetetive gameplay in a sterile setting.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though it doesn't give you enough room to breathe, BioDefense: Zombie Outbreak borrows enough from the wider action strategy genre to make it an interesting proposition in the crowded tower defence genre.

    • 60 Critic Score
    A fun, but ultimately monotonous one trick pony, Braveheart is best suited to short bursts where its repetitive nature can be sufficiently tolerated.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Bridge Odyssey is a good-looking game, but it's let down by its complex and frustrating control method.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Catacombs mixes classic hack 'n' slash gameplay with twin-stick shooter mechanics to pleasant effect, but it lacks the depth and variety necessary to fight its way to the top.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Modern Conflict HD is fun, but too limited and lightweight to capture hearts and minds.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A lazy effort that adds little value in relation to last year's instalment, NBA Elite 11 offers only superficial improvements that fail to move the ball forward in terms of gameplay.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A clear advance from last year's wretched instalment, NFL 2011 fumbles with a number of issues new and old that prevent it from scoring big.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Customisable controls prevent this reloaded version of N.O.V.A. HD from shooting blanks but it could have been so much more.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though it suffers from loose physics and level design, The Package is inventive and challenging enough to be worth a purchase.
    • 71 Metascore

    Hybrid 2 is a playable, though clearly outdated action RPG that can't shake the sense that it's not at home on iPhone.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Shamelessly derivative and lacking likeable characters and an interesting storyline, The Jim & Frank Mysteries: Blood River Files is a well-intended but ultimately disappointing puzzle adventure.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Devil May Cry 4 refrain is too basic to be anything more than mildly enjoyable, its lack of depth, excitement, and polish preventing the delivery of a more satisfying experience.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    As colourful and solid a match-three puzzler as it is, Swap This! doesn't have the outstanding features necessary to make it stand out from the rest.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Ramps has value in spades, but its physics puzzle play lacks the spark needed to make it stand out.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Poor writing, conventional action, and a general lack of polish conspire to make Gangstar: Miami Vindication an underwhelming game.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Red Star boasts astonishing production values and challenging gameplay, but the tacked-on touch controls and unforgiving difficulty are frustrating.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Robot Unicorn Attack Heavy Metal Edition has all the elements of a good endless running game, but an underwhelming sense of style ruins its appeal.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Thanks to its striking visuals and intense action Zombie Shock is instantly appealing, but the gameplay is dragged down by repetition and occasionally awkward controls.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Zombie Wonderland has all the ingredients for a novel take on the zombie shooter, but repetitive gameplay and restricted movement mean the recipe isn't quite right.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A well-intended racer that has all the right features - however flawed they might be - but none of the excitement needed to get your heart racing.
    • 73 Metascore

    Final Fantasy II earns praise for its remastered visuals and updated gameplay, though it remains as off-putting as its original release.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Flick Baseball Pro is a good-looking, yet unashamedly shallow game without the modes and features needed to really play ball.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A charming, though shallow effort at social gaming that offers little substance to match its free price.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Admittedly loyal to the band's latest release, Gorillaz: Escape to Plastic Beach is a scatterbrained affair that doesn't deliver in terms of gameplay.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Stifled by tricky controls, Heavy Gunner is visually striking but too repetitive to live up to its epic billing.
