    A charming, easy-to-play Dungeon Keeper clone with features that include cooking up captured monsters in soups and stews to level up your party of characters. It's simple but lengthy fun for all ages, but falls short for its limited dungeon building and too much repetition.

    Almost nothing to do with Transformers but a reasonably decent action puzzler nonetheless.

    Flower, Sun and Rain is an incredibly ambitious release for the DS. Most will find it overly frustrating and just a bit too weird. Some will love it, though.

    Not all the mini-games on offer here are winners, but the structure of 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix not only minimises frustration but spurs you forward too.

    An interesting take on the tactical role-playing genre, Blue Dragon Plus isn't quite honed enough to fulfill its potential.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A new made role-player with a strong retro theme, Black Sigil provides plenty of game but doesn't mark out any new territory.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A simple squad-based touchscreen shooter with the occasional nice touch, Elite Forces: Unit 77 provides a B movie experience.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The 3rd Phantom is a workman-like tactical RPG which will come as manna from heaven for hardcore Bleach fans but fails to distinguish itself from the many other titles of this type already available.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An improvement over Fireteam Bravo 2, but not exactly groundbreaking.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a fresh idea but somehow the block dropping antics of Art Style: KUBOS don't live up to its potential.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Imperfect handling and shallow gameplay leave DiRT 2 in the dust of more compelling, competent off-road racers.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Simple, addictive and entertaining concept that could have been dangerously compulsive with a little more balance and polish.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    BreakQuest impresses with creative level design and novel physics-based play but sadly suffers from fundamental control issues.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Bloodlines is a brave attempt at an open 3D world which, while visually breathtaking, is let down by repetitive gameplay and awkward camera controls.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A cute if unsophisticated castle defence game, Army Defender is fun to play but doesn't offer much of a challenge.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a good story, but those looking to emulate their favourite Belgium detective will find the repetitive brainteasers and limited sleuthing frustrating.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Metal Torrent has the makings of a fantastic space shooter, but is severely let down by a lack of content.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An all-out attack on the eyes, Assault Squadron is a slick shooter that's too short for its own good.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A shocking lack of features sends Ace Combat Xi: Skies of Incursion plummeting well below expectations, gliding by on impressive graphics and polished controls.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Too safe to really be spectacular, Artist Colony is nonetheless a playable people simulator that comes with a unique setting, but fails to truly build on its early promise.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Its flawed-yet-enjoyable core experience means Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess is charming but also frustrating.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Tron Evolution is a solid action/puzzle title but underneath the neon art style there's no much you haven't seen before.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One for CSI fans only, sloppy mini-games and annoying dialogue mar what could've been an engaging point-and-click adventure.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A great-looking 3D maze game, Aerox is at its best when negotiating its flowing courses at speed - in spite of minor control and menu concerns.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While its ambitious scale is admirable, Aralon: Sword and Shadow possesses a myriad of flaws that yield clunky, unrefined gameplay.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Virtual City is an unfocused take on time management that explodes with variety to its own detriment.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While pinball fans will continue to balk, Sonic Spinball is fun enough and quirky enough to remain fresh and relevant enough despite being relatively unchanged since it launched in 1993.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A highly formulaic role-playing game, Eternal Legacy has some redeeming qualities that support limited enjoyment.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A dull introduction and occasional unfair difficulty spikes aren't enough to run The War of Eustrath HD, particularly in light of its interesting battle mechanics.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A promising if scruffy brawler with an ill-advised open world element tacked on, Corporate Fury is destined for cult status.
