 IPAD NEWS

Battle of the Bulge and Interlocked are the top-reviewed iPad games for December

Critically acclaimed

Product: Quality Index | Manufacturer: Steel Media
 
Quality Index iPad, thumbnail 1
If you were wondering what the best-reviewed iPad games on the web last month were, here's the iPad Quality Index round-up for December to fill you in.

The iPad Quality Index boasts over 75,000 reviews from websites like 148Apps, Pocket Gamer, and Gamezebo, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each iPad title.

Winning the Battle

2012 was a pretty special year for iPad games, and it ended on a suitably classy note.

Topping the December iPad Qi game chart is the elegant historical war game Battle of the Bulge, which combines a turn-based simulation experience with the spirit of classic boardgames.

Not far behind in fourth place, Square Enix's Final Fantasy IV marks a sizeable step forward for the classic JRPG series. This 3D update to the 1991 classic marks the point at which Eastern role-playing games started dealing with darker themes and more complex characters.

Returning to the war theme, Atypical Games zooms into the December mayhem with Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders, one of the most detailed 3D iPad flight sims yet.

Finally, at #9 in the chart, we have Minigore 2, the much-anticipated follow-up to the game that spawned a thousand twin-stick shooters. This one dials the monster-blasting action up to 11.

N.B. While we only display the average score to one decimal place, the list is generated to further significant figures. We just don't show them all.

And, naturally, this is a static graph based on live listings which are subject to constant change as new releases and reviews emerge.

In order to provide a regular marker of the critical zeitgeist, however, we will continue to round up the best of the iPad games released each month to provide the definitive Quality Index top ten.
