    • 70 Critic Score
    A tight and attractive single-thumb racer that prompts you to perfect your lap times, but suffers from somewhat uneven track design.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less a breath of fresh air, more a blast of air conditioning, Temple Run 2 adds little to the endless-runner genre, though it is fun. It's just not the shot in the arm some of us were hoping for.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a darts game. On the PSP. And yet somehow it's actually a lot of fun.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're willing to put the work in, there's a great puzzling strategy game to uncover here.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The definitive handheld version, Transformers DS boasts decent gameplay, good presentation and clever online features that go beyond traditional movie-licensed fare.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A clever puzzle-platformer with a decent hook, Inoqoni will keep you entertained for a decent while.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia is the Pokémon series at its most professional and polished, but non-fans will find it as linear and repetitive as ever.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Starbase Orion is a nice ode to old skool RTSs, but provides little guidance for novices.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A hauntingly good extension of the original, Angry Birds Halloween delivers more of the same entertaining physics puzzle play.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Arguably indispensable for those wanting and able to play with others, but despite some interesting touches the new single-player mode fizzles more than it explodes.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not one for the faint of heart or slow of finger, Jet Car Stunts 2 takes a long time to master, but it's just about worth the effort.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Heroes of Honor is a compelling blend of city-building and real-time warfare. Genre veterans might not appreciate the free-to-play elements, however.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Infuriating and compelling in equal measures, this is the very definition of niche gaming.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A charming and well-constructed downhill racer, Ski Safari doesn't have the chops to stick in the memory for long, but it's an enjoyable blast while it lasts.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although it doesn't feel completely at home on iPhone, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within is an impressive conversion of an excellent console game.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A polished version of a solid game, Ski Safari: Adventure Time doesn't deviate far from the promise of its title.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Prisonhood's multitude of bite-sized tasks makes incarceration surprisingly addictive.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    DodoGo! is a solid and fun puzzler which suffers from a weak tutorial system.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A slightly sloppy but ultimately entertaining arcade kick around.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Grandpa and the Zombies is an engaging puzzle game that works the part of your body that zombies covet most.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Power Grounds adds an interesting power-up twist to the roguelike formula that excites and frustrates in almost equal measure.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Very similar to the first Chaos Rings game in both design and gameplay, Omega comes across more as an expansion pack than a full-blown sequel.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Building on the series' heritage, Mega Man ZX is a refined title that, although not without flaws, brings quality action platforming to the DS.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A cute, casual time waster of a game that delivers fun, funk, and pocket-sized distraction on demand.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it doesn't try to reinvent the wheel when it comes to gameplay, Wall-E is nevertheless enjoyable and engaging - while it lasts. Just like its subject matter, this movie tie-in has lots of heart.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    R-Type II provides yet more old-school shmup action with vital controller support and a particularly masochistic streak.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An amusing game of evasion, The Incident holds little in the way of lasting appeal.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    MetalStorm: Online boasts tight controls, amazing visuals and robust multiplayer, but the lack of available gameplay modes clips its wings somewhat.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The Thrill Cam is a majestic moment in gaming but it's the rock-solid driving model that ensures great universal enjoyment, albeit marred by technical gremlins and misguided GTA aspirations.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's beautifully put together and full of laughs, but the violence in Fist of Awesome gets old a little too quickly.
