    Re-Volt Classic is a true gem in the racing genre giving countless hours of challenging racing, star-chasing and swearing at evil opponents blasting you with electric bolts. The price is on the high side, and I would have liked it lower to get more players to jump on the buy button. If you want a game that you can really sink your teeth into Re-Volt Classic comes highly recommended.

    Certainly a welcome return, but it doesn't offer as nearly as much as I had hoped. Tiger Challenge and the Facebook integration are strong additions, and the tight controls, particularly on the iPad version are second to none. But, somehow I expected more from EA… more content, more courses, more tightly integrated commentary, and much more in the visuals department (and that's coming from someone who cherishes gameplay).

    The kind of 99 cent game I like to see on the app store. The gameplay is frantic, and the birds are cute. It's not super deep, but has enough challenges to keep you coming back. It takes advantage of the iPad with "HD" graphics and some great animations,

    Stardust Hero is one of those games that you just want to keep on playing. Sadly it ends, and when it does you haven´t got much left to do.

    Fast Five doesn't bring anything refreshingly new to racing games, ripping many elements from similar games before it. But, it is a highly polished and enjoyable racer and can hold its head high on the AppStore amongst other quality titles such as NFS: Hot Pursuit and the Asphalt series.

    Ticket to Ride is the first time I've enjoyed playing with trains in 20 years. Should it have more content and a local play mode for the $6.99 asking price? I think so. Could it use a bit more in regards to social features and chat? Certainly! But that doesn't take away from the fact that it is a highly polished, and highly entertaining board game experience that will keep you coming back whenever you have 20-30 minutes to spare, and possibly even tempt you spend a few more bucks on it's add-ons.

    Despite the lack of multiplayer (we expect this to be added in future updates) XCOM: Enemy Unknown offers an astronomical amount of content, spanning more than one genre.

    While Fibble isn't the game you'd expect from Crytek, it is a good example of the puzzle genre.

    The deciding factor then is the multiplayer. It gives the game far more legs than the competition, and will no doubt sit as the dominant Arcade racer on your iOS home-screen. That is until the next super-sprint-style game hits the AppStore – no doubt in a few weeks.

    Devil's Attorney has got nothing to do with Phoenix Wright. There I said it in the final paragraph.
