The worst console spin-offs on iPhone and iPad

Jon Mundy:

There's little in the mobile games industry as depressing or infuriating as a bad console spin-off. It's an insult on so many levels.

For one thing, a sloppily executed spin-off exploits the good faith of fans of the original IP, who are looking to continue their positive experience while on the move.

On another level, a lazy spin-off often comes across as a slap in the face to fans of mobile gaming. Being fobbed off with a second-rate cash-in tells you exactly what the publisher thinks of your chosen pastime. It thinks you're an undiscerning second-class gaming citizen.

Before we get too hot and bothered about mobile-unfriendly game makers, though, we're going to vent in the general direction of five slabs of smartphone gaming mediocrity operating under the cover of a highly esteemed name. (Borderlands Legends, iPad, iPhone, Katamari amore, Lumines Touch Fusion, Mass Effect Galaxy, Resident Evil Mercenaries Vs.)
