    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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 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
    • 60 Critic Score
    Hybrid 2 is a playable, though clearly outdated action RPG that can't shake the sense that it's not at home on iPhone.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
    • 60 Critic Score
    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.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Despite good looks and lots of variety, The Simpsons Arcade isn't as fun or as funny as it aspires to be.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Probably the most original and unique football sim to hit iPhone, Soccer Superstars sadly doesn't play quite as smoothly on the pitch, serving up an arcade take on the sport that feels a touch half baked.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    DynamoKid Touch has neither the instant appeal of Canabalt nor the breadth of play of a full platformer to make it fully satisfying.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While MMA should be applauded for an innovative control scheme, it's ultimately cumbersome. This issue and the lack of multiplayer make it an underwhelming game.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Eliminate: Gun Range is too repetitive to be a classic, but it's a solid and playable demonstration of what the iPhone 4 can do.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Some visual glitches, disjointed dialogue and lacklustre combat thankfully don't manage to entirely spoil an atmospheric, visually impressive horror romp.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    With a great setting, storyline and characters, it's a shame Hector: Badge of Carnage Ep1 falls down due to overly complicated, frustrating puzzles.
