    An inadequate interface, poor localisation, and underdeveloped story make 1112, Episode 02 a disappointing follow up.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While it's a fun mix of match-three puzzling and role-playing, Dungeon Raid fails to set the two elements in a solid structure and so never gains any long-term appeal.

    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score

    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One of the oddest games you'll ever come across, Hamlet replicates the adventure gaming formula of yesteryear with obtuse puzzles that makes for a annoyingly difficult gameplay.

    • 60 Critic Score
    There's little inherently wrong with Clumsy Bob and its sideways take on Doodle Jump but for the fact we've seen so many similar games before.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Attractive presentation can't make up for a lack of substance - just like a real circus!
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An interesting idea that's technically well implemented, high score game Dead Runner is nevertheless thematically confused.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A cool concept let down by clumsy controls and difficulty sharper than the teeth of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dracula: The Path of the Dragon strikes a supreme style, but doesn't stake claim to the depth of gameplay and satisfaction to support such an ambitious setting.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Inotia 3: Children of Carnia is competent and unexciting, a by-the-numbers level-grinding game that lacks the polish and energy of its betters.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Best described as The Desert Megan Fox, 2XL TrophyLite Rally looks beautiful, handles well, but lacks variation, challenge and depth.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An honest, though underwhelming effort, 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2011 toys too much with game balancing in an effort to deliver high drama.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A.D.D. lives up to its name as mediocre mini-game compilation that won't hold your attention for long.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fussy controls and a bizarre battle system render Across Age nothing more than an average anachronism.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 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.
