January 15, 2008, Victoria, Canada: Happy New Year! As always, we have the best game of December 2007 for you to review and download - for free. The list is derived from actual world-wide customer game downloads from MobileRated, the leading free and legal mobile phone games download site.
The top 10 games are:
Zelda remains the king for at least another month, with nearly 50,000 downloads. Yes, Virginia, this game really is that good!
The thing is, we now have an incredible number of quality free games that match up with anything you can purchase from a carrier. Check out the graphics of SuperMoto Extreme, the game simulation of 2006 World Soccer or the AI of Chess. These games are testing the boundaries of the existing mobile phone hardware and squeeze out the best game entertainment possible today.
In case you haven't yet noticed it (but I'm sure you have!) we've added a new "Featured Games" category to help point out a few games we personally think are fabulous but maybe haven't received enough visibility to enter the top 10 lists. Check them out!
Fans of MobileRated rate games according to five measures of quality: gameplay, graphics, sound, features, and fun. These ratings aid users to select the games they wish to play. All the games in the top ten lists are well-rated, but are not necessarily the highest rated games. Breadth of handset support is also very important and plays a role in determining the top ten games. There are also regional differences, with certain games appealing only in certain markets.
