War. War never changes. But sometimes it does!
Breach & Clear (iOS)
On paper, the prospect of a turn-based tactical strategy game from a former Call of Duty developer sounds great. Unfortunately, Breach & Clear needs a lot of work. Spotty controls, dull gameplay and a confusing menu system make this one to avoid, at least until it gets a hefty update. Good news: There's always XCOM!
Sky Gamblers: Cold War (iOS)
The graphics-heavy flight sim series returns for a historical sequel. A bunch of single-player modes have been added, on top of online multiplayer and AirPlay support. If you dug the first one, the sequel continues the trend.
Halo: Spartan Assault (WP8)
We weren't able to play through Halo: Spartan Assault in time for press, but early reactions seem to imply that it's a serviceable, if forgettable, top-down shooter set in the Halo universe. But Windows Phone exclusives don't come around very often, so if you've got one of those devices and you're starving for a new game, Spartan Assault will do in a pinch.
