Despite its flashy neon lights and comic book-style interstitials, Flashout 2 is a pretty straightforward sci-fi-tinged racer: you'll zoom around a futuristic track, earn cash, upgrade your podracer, and repeat. Here’s the catch: each hovercraft comes armed with a machine gun, rockets, and mines, and a quick trigger finger is often the difference between first and last. While decently fun, it ultimately proves insubstantial and lightweight, with control quirks and a lacking balance between racing and combat.
We’ve got a couple of pretty significant releases leading the week: Supercell’s Boom Beach, which follows the wildly popular Clash of Clans, along with Star Wars: Assault Team, a card-based battler based on A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. We’ve got several other new releases profiled in the pack, of course, and if you’re a fan of Plants vs. Zombies 2, don’t forget to update to grab the new Far Future update with loads of fresh free content. Be sure to keep an eye out for full reviews of some of these titles in the coming days, and then check back next Thursday for an all-new list of notable games to consider.
