    Not the finest poker sim around but a solid and comprehensive effort nonetheless.

    If you're committed to the cause, Dr Kawashima's Brain Training will give your grey cells a daily workwork for weeks, but it ain't no game.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The basics are creatively executed, but, while enjoyable, the resultant experience falls far short of reinventing anything – let alone brilliance.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Attractive but with deep issues, Red Hot Rumble's contribution to the PSP library can often be an incoherent, confused mess.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A little light on true 'classics' and over-reliant on shooters but excellently converted to PSP, which should at least delight the old-skool crowd.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may have little grounding in reality, but Me & My Katamari is so unique and delightful – from the very germ of the idea through to its jaw-dropping, coherent and bursting-with-character execution – that it's one of those games you simply must play.

    • 60 Critic Score
    Metal Gear Acid 2 is certainly big and complex, but unfortunately it's not particularly clever.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An action adventure on the most ambitious scale – a stunning achievement, and a showcase PSP title.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An engrossing strategy game with a rich array of units, excellent replay value and a history lesson thrown in.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A truly independent voice amongst the blockbusters, this artistic puzzler deserves to be a breakout hit.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Thanks to brilliant design, fantastic gameplay and its in-built rumble device, Drill Dozer is one of the best 2D platformers you'll ever play.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mixing cute with boring, Tamagotchi Connection Corner Shop quickly becomes so routine you should be paid £5 an hour to play it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Different, satisfying but also limited.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It might look a bit dated now, but Final Fantasy IV Advance is a classic gaming experience.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Admirable in its variety and scope but in terms of presentation and technical execution it's a bad beat.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Infected is more akin to a mild tummy bug than a potentially life-ending bout of Ebola. To be fair though, it's probably more entertaining than either.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A polished and entertaining experience, Metroid Prime Pinball is only let down by its lack of proper pinball tables.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The gambling introduces a fresh and very welcome dynamic to the beat-'em-up genre, but such innovation is dealt a low blow by a mediocre fighting engine.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Despite its reputation as a Japanese classic, the real puzzle about Puyo Pop Fever is who needs it on DS?
    • 42 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Bland, unimaginative, underpowered and insipid, we've absolutely nothing positive to say about it.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Touch Darts' refined control method make it a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Disappointing point-and-click adventure with the odd decent puzzle but one that feels too basic, with too few hooks to really stand out, meaning it fast becomes a chore to play.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Dull, by-the-numbers platformer that fails to exploit either George's or the DS's unique strengths.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Those wishing for a Doctor Who action game will probably turn their nose up at this virtual card game, but it'll be their loss as this is a surprisingly enjoyable gem that younger gamers are likely to remember fondly for some time.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Hardcore Harry Potter action that's almost too involved for its own good.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fine adventure with a cracking plot and some imaginative puzzles, only let down by some interface inconsistencies.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A few decent individual events but as a package International Athletics is less Linford Christie and more tedious Tupperware party.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the must-have PSP games of the year, LocoRoco 2 delivers everything we could have wanted - more stuff to unlock and plenty of joyful, secret-packed levels full of weirdness and wonder.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A dodgy script and some absurd puzzles dent the appeal of Secret Files 2: Puritas Cordis. Fans of the original game will lap this up, but everyone else should look elsewhere for their point-and-click fix.
