Playstation Vita Review Thread

[ Edited ]
34 Replies 702 Views edited 13-02-2012

With reviews of the Playstation Vita's Game library being posted up today and throughout the week towards the Vitas Launch, I thought I would create this thread for people to post reviews in so there will be no need to start threads for every review that gets posted ;)

 

So far IGN has posted up their timeline of reviews that will be posted up from today right to the Vita's Launch.

 

http://uk.ign.com/wikis/ps-vita/PlayStation_Vita_Launch_Reviews

 

If ive worked this out right reviews should start hitting the net today at around 2pm, according to IGN review release schedule.

It seems Reality Fighters and little Deviants haven't done especially well though.  A shame really, I still plan to get them both at launch regardless.

I'm still getting Little Deviants which I have preordered. I wasn't very impressed with Reality Fighters and may pick it up once it drops on price.

Its time for more reviews from 3rd Party Developers. So far the trend of most 3rd Partys quicky making not so great games for launch has not happened yet with Rayman, Fifa, Lumines and UMVC3 all getting great reviews.

 

You may notice that a good amount of these reviews are Ubisoft games who already have two excellent launch games, can they keep it up.

It's the same with the DS. The majority of it's best games as always been first party. Too many ''fillers'' on both systems so far it seems.

Rayman Origins and Lumines: Electronic Symphony are the two good games they have at launch. The others are all poor.

So out of all of the reviews so far, here is a list of some of the games that have scored high review scores and a recommendation of the best Vita Games to get at launch.

 

Uncharted Golden Abyss

Wipeout 2048

Super Stardust Delta

Fifa Football

Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom

Modnation Racers Road Trip

Everybody's Golf

Rayman Origins

Lumines: Electronic Symphony

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend

 

But dont forget just because some games got 6.5 or 7 or even 4, doesnt mean they are bad. Each person has different types of games they love and some of the games you will just click to better that someone else.

 

I wont be on till tomorrow night, but here are the review that still need to be released.

 

Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus

Escape Plan

Top Darts

Hustle Kings Vita

Plants Vs Zombies

Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack

Over on TSA we've put all of our Vita content into categories (reviews, hands on, interviews, opinion etc) in a 'PS Vita Hub' and we've plenty more reviews on the way! 

 

For me, WipEout 2048 looks amazing, I'm tempted to get a Vita just for that!
