    "Sometimes you have a really crappy day at work, and you just want to shoot something (virtually) when you get home. Welcome to Dead Space 2 - the ultimate stress reliever! Not only are the graphics gorgeous, but you find yourself laughing at having to cut off monster parts to get through the levels. Two thumbs up from me! "

    "The graphics in this FPS are amazing. The zombies are really detailed that every once in a while it still spooks me. Love playing this FPS - can even play offline so that's nice when there's no wifi around."

    "Metal Slug 3 is a classic arcade shooter that was created decades ago. The port is high quality and translates extremely well. The game itself is pretty good, in the same vein as things like Contra, but not quite as good. The graphics are obviously going to be older, but in terms of pure bullet hell action, it's one of the better ones out there. Definitely would recommend giving it a try."
