Dead Space Review
EA's Dead Space, not only one of the best looking and best made games yet to grace iOS but also the outright scariest, is likely to have you squirming anxiously, jumping like a jack rabbit and shrieking in terror, as developers IronMonkey Studios expertly meld psychological horror with grisly, high-octane action to absolutely nerve-shredding effect.
Battlefield Bad Company 2 Review
The seemingly never-ending deluge of big name games onto iOS continues with Battlefield Bad Company 2 from EA Mobile. This is a surprisingly faithful mobile adaptation of the acclaimed PS3 and Xbox 360 First-person shooter, replete with the intense action, off-kilter humor, vehicular carnage and multiplayer deathmatches that title is known for.
Cause of Death Review
There's no real mystery as to why iGamers everywhere aren't shouting about this expertly crafted interactive novel from the rooftops. The long and short of it is Cause of Death simply had the poor luck of being released on one of the App Store's busiest ever weeks alongside a staggering array of established franchises and much-hyped games. It's a shame though, because this is easily one of most interesting and original titles I've played/read all month.

Brandishing three different gameplay options - Career, Exhibition, and Challenges, the ability to totally customize your fighter, and a unique control scheme, EA Mobile's MMA delivers a remarkably fully featured fighting game on iPhone!
The Sims 3 Ambitions Review

Sadly, the reality is usually much more mundane and these childhood dreams are unfullfilled. Well, now thanks to The Sims 3: Ambitions, iPhone gamers can turn back the clock and have a crack at leading the (virtual) life they always desired.
