Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus for iPad Review +  

There are precious few first person shooters available for the iPad at the moment, and Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus is definitely the best. Sporting high quality 3-D graphics, this game blows the competition out of the water in visuals. Even better, the gameplay is on par with many console shooters, comparing quite well with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Multiplayer completes the package and suffers from no lag issues whatsoever.

Family Feud for iPad Review +  

Family Feud has been an extremely popular TV game show for many years, bringing entertainment to millions of people. So does its iPad counterpart share in the success or fall flat? To begin with, the game features a nice array of questions and a steadily scaling computer competitor difficulty level, allowing for consistent challenge over the course of the game. Unfortunately, there is some serious issues with some of the answers to particular questions. For example, who says “Mommy!” when they have their picture taken?

Fruit Ninja for iPad App Review +  

The concept behind Fruit Ninja is a simple one: use your amazing ninja skills to bring different fruits to a squishy end. While it may sound simple and silly, it is actually extremely satisfying. There is a certain level of strategy involved in making your slashes to maximize the fruit death toll and your score. At its heart, though, it is fun while not being overly challenging. The newest release of Fruit Ninja features multiplayer over Game Center, allowing for some serious multiplayer mayhem, certainly one of the best aspects of the game.

Angry Birds App for iPad Review +  

Among the thousands of iPad apps currently available, what makes Angry Birds stand out from the crowd? To put it simply, it is extremely fun and insanely addictive.

Gameplay consists of tossing birds past a variety of obstacles such as stones, wooden railings and chain link fences to hit the pigs and ruin their day.

Cut the Rope App for iPad Review +  

There is an absolute flood of iPad games currently on the market, many of which are mediocre and derivative at best. In the age of amazing 3D graphics, what is a buyer’s motivation for picking up a 2D game? To put it simply, they can be really fun, and Cut the Rope really stands out from the crowd in terms of pure addictive joy. A combination of neat physics and simple yet deep gameplay go hand in hand with a cute art style designed to suck you in from the start.
