With so many games launching alongside the PS Vita, how do you choose which ones to get? Well, with NowGamer’s reviews of course.
We’ve reviewed all of the PS Vita’s launch games, and have pinpointed those we might recommend, and the others you’ll probably pick up from a bargain bin.
- Uncharted: Golden Abyss review – not by Naughty Dog, but another fantastic adventure for Drake.
- WipEout 2048 review – Studio Liverpool smash out another success, with the best WipEout game yet.
- Lumines Electronic Symphony review – it’s the same game as ever, but well suited to the PS Vita.
- FIFA Football review – surprisingly, it’s better than the PS3 version.
- Everybody’s Golf review – one of the best examples of the series, and a must-have for Vita owners.
- Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour review – it’s pretty much the same as the console versions, but well suited to the handheld.
- BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend review – proof that the PS Vita is capable as a fighter’s console.
- Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 review – more proof that the PS Vita can do beat-‘em-ups, just a little less intensive.
- Army Corps Of Hell review – a decent idea and a new IP, poorly realised.
- Little Deviants review – an interesting mini-game collection that lacks… well, anything.
- ModNation Racers review – the fantastic kart racer ported over to PS Vita. Unsuccessfully.
- Reality Fighters review – a tech demo of the Vita’s augmented reality, but not much of a game.
- Rayman Origins review – it’s the same as the PS3 version, just without multiplayer.
- Touch My Katamari review – more of the same for Katamari fans, though a good entry point for newcomers.
- Ridge Racer review – a budget racer fuelled by DLC that lacks the essense that makes Ridge Racer so great.
