Playstation Vita Game Reviews
10tons has released Sparkle 2, the sequel to its marbling-shooting puzzle game that’s now available across a myriad of platforms.
Now that Borderlands 2 has made the jump to the smaller screen of the PlayStation Vita, one has to wonder if all of that great content can fit onto the tiny handheld device.
The Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster has finally arrived, giving a classic Japanese role-playing game favorite a shiny new coat of paint as well as a ton of extras not present in the originals. We checked out the PlayStation Vita version to see what it was like to play a beefy PlayStation 2 classics in the palms of our hands.
Whatever your high school experience was like, we doubt it was tougher than the one at Hope's Peak Academy. In Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, only the elite of the elite get admitted. Every student wants to get away with murder, but here, that desire is quite literal. Who needs friends when they're all trying to kill you?
Perhaps it’s the rocking soundtrack. Perhaps it’s the fact that obsessive compulsion and gaming go together like peanut butter and exactly 14.3 grams of jelly. Whatever the reason, Dustforce is incredibly fun.
Once you actually start playing the game and run through the tutorial, that’s where all semblances of simplicity stop and the real meat of OlliOlli shines through.
Eufloria HD takes a fairly basic RTS formula and paints over it with the serenity of games like flower to create something that’s pretty weird. At its core, Eufloria is about killing your opponents and taking over their territory, but the graphics and sound of make it an almost meditative experience. Never has a game been so relaxing and so intense at the same time. While Eufloria HD has a number of problems with its gameplay mechanics and controls, the tone is so unique that it alone warrants a playthrough.
About a year and a half ago, Rainbow Moon, a strategy RPG in the style of classic grid based games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea, released on the PS3. It had a… let’s say lukewarm reception. Its story was shallow, its animations were stiff, and its gameplay was overly focused on grinding. It wasn’t without its good points however. The graphics themselves were fun and cartoony and the game could be quite deep once you did the prerequisite grinding. It was enjoyed by enough people to get a re-release on the PS Vita only a couple days ago and it’s quite faithful to its console release. Whether that’s a good or bad thing will depend on how you view the original.
Tearaway is the newest gem from Media Molecule, the creators of LittleBigPlanet. This title features a story that celebrates storytelling and even manages to get you into the action. In Tearaway, you must help a little messenger named Iota (or Atoi, if female), deliver a message to the most important person in its world: you!
