    Uncharted: Golden Abyss

    Golden Abyss' limited spectacle and lacking script make it the worst entry in the Uncharted series since the original Drake's Fortune. I wouldn't blame anyone for approaching Uncharted: Golden Abyss (the second new Uncharted... more

    Everybody's Golf

    Everybody's Golf isn't an immediately exciting launch title, but it is one that you'll find yourself going back to time and time again. It might sound a bit obvious, but Everybody's Golf really is for everybody. A cute art... more

    Sound Shapes

    For all the game's ambition, and for all the whimsy and mirth it is so capable of providing, it falls into the same trap as LittleBigPlanet - excruciating platforming. The Vita is an extraordinarily frustrating console. The... more

    Retro City Rampage

    The best moments of Retro City Rampage come from a shared enjoyment of the past. Development on Retro City Rampage started decades before developer Brian Provinciano even consigned the first line of code to his computer.... more

    WipEout 2048

    2048 isn't the best WipEout game in the series, but it's certainly a positive endorsement of Sony's latest portable hardware. Few games have defined Sony's PlayStation brand over the ages like WipEout, with SCE Studio Liverpool's... more

    FIFA Football

    This is the best handheld football game ever, but it'll undoubtedly be convincingly beaten once EA has got to grips with the hardware - hopefully in time for FIFA 13 later this year. Modelling FIFA Football after FIFA 11... more

    Rayman Origins

    A passionate tribute to the days when platform games ruled the Earth, but beyond that, it's also one of the best examples of the genre we've had in recent memory. This review was originally published for the Xbox 360 and... more

    Lumines Electronic Symphony

    While it's clear Q Entertainment perfected the game's formula on their very first try, this iteration of the neon-lit puzzler is so charming and elegantly formed you'd be a fool to say no. "Haemorrhoids?" I ask Andy, more

    Gravity Rush

    Gravity Rush is a very enjoyable game despite a few lengthy load times, a terrible name and an unimaginative character introduction Amnesia is an overplayed, clichéd story conceit, so it's a shame Gravity Rush relies on it... more

    Velocity Ultra

    FuturLab's latest effort showcases the potential quality of high-quality, modest-price titles on a digital handheld storefront. Velocity is probably the most fun I've had with the Vita since it launched, which is particularly... more

    Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

    Metal Gear Solid HD collection on the home consoles remains the one to get, though Armature Studio's PS Vita version will still have plenty of value for handheld fans. Released earlier this year on Xbox 360 and PlayStation... more

    LittleBigPlanet Vita

    At four games in the LittleBigPlanet series feels less fresh than it once did, and new touch mechanics don't add as much to the experience as you might think. LittleBigPlanet Vita is a lovely game. It's the kind of game that... more

    MotorStorm RC

    Thanks to the excellent leaderboard integration RC offers a greater sense of competition than many standard racing games, and will tug at you time and time again. MotorStorm RC is my favourite Vita game. It's also the cheapest... more
