    Kosmo Spin looks a treat and features a neat universe-spinning concept, unfortunately it can't back these up with sufficiently compelling gameplay.

    A perfectly playable climbing game, A Moon For The Sky doesn't do enough to make itself stand out from the crowd.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Not in either Doodle Jump or Bird Strike's league, Ninjatown: Trees of Doom! comes with a similar height-chasing set-up, but you could well get bored before it hits the top.

    Looking a whole lot better than it plays, OMG Pirates!'s Cartoon Network-esque visuals can't hide the fact that it's an uninspiring hack and slash game - entertaining for short periods but not worthy of much long-term attention.

    Great graphics aren't enough to save endless jumping game Volcano Escape from floaty controls.

    With performance and control issues, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is a sweet classic turned sour.
    • 75 Metascore

    • 60 Critic Score
    Star Battalion unsuccessfully tries to make up for mediocre gameplay with online co-operative multiplayer and high-definition graphics.
    • 64 Metascore

    Poor design prevents the cool idea that is Star Wars: Battle for Hoth from becoming a great tower defence game.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A charming entry to the genre, but one which adds nothing new and whose difficulty is pitched too high for its intended market.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Delivering in terms of looks, Chocolate Tycoon proves far less proficient when it comes to the actual process of making the sweet stuff.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The introduction of the undead gives Stenches an interesting change of pace, but more variety would have earned it a medal of distinction.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Immediate and fun but runs out of steam, becoming repetitive.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The flying pig motif is easy to get behind for a little while, but once it wears off there's nothing left but ground up snout and spare ribs.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Tehra: Dark Warrior is a visual triumph, but the gameplay is as skimpy as the main character's clothing.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Splinter Cell: Conviction's fiddly controls and technical quirks spoil an otherwise pacy and entertaining action-stealth game.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Though simplistic in nature, Buddy Rush is charming enough to fill a few moments with basic hack 'n' slash role-playing.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This single-finger speedster certainly offers a refreshing way to drive, but the lack of variety means there's not enough fuel in the tank to ensure it goes the full race distance.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Trucker's Delight Episode 1 makes the most of its naughty music video source material, but doesn't really add up as a racing game.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Showcases excellent visuals and engaging gameplay, but is shot down by frustrating and inaccurate controls.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Charming in both concept and appearance, but its brand of button-mashing action is simultaneously simplistic and unwieldy.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While its scale is to be applauded, Warpgate HD doesn't deliver gameplay of high enough quality to make interstellar trade and travel fun.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An interesting concept that sows plenty of ambitions, We Rule falls short of harvesting compelling gameplay.
    • 73 Metascore

    • 60 Critic Score
    Fans of Monster Hunter are in for a decent alternative to their favourite action RPG, but a lack of imagination traps Lords Of Arcana on a plane of relative mediocrity when compared to its bigger cousin.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A groundbreaking, though generic online role-playing game that needs a robust combat system and creative quests to make the portable MMO fantasy a reality.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Crooked House is a competent enough puzzler, but overly simplistic gameplay and unsatisfying controls keep it from making much of an impression.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite its iintriguing take on match-three puzzle play, Puzzle Cosmos is just too hard to be enjoyable.
