5.0 out of 5 stars Even better on the vita, 30 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Metal Gear Solid games hold a special place in a lot of gamers' hearts. Many, including myself, grew up on these instant classics.

One of the biggest surprises from this port is the quality of the audio, most specifically with MGS3. The jungle atmosphere comes to life through Vita's tiny stereo speakers and mimics a slight feel of surround sound, while the breathtaking soundtrack by Harry Gregson-Williams in both games is clear and extremely fitting. It's definitely one of those situations where the music has the ability to immerse you in the world of Snake and truly add to the setting of the game.
The Vita edition of MGS:HD also offers a new twist on the old classic controls. For example, the inventory is controlled using the front touch screen while certain actions such as peeking around corners or performing CQC (Close Quarters Combat) actions are executed with the rear touchpad. While the inventory system is extremely easy and responsive to use, the advanced CQC actions using the rear touch pad can take a bit of getting used to.

If your a true MGS fan BUY THIS worth the money it's a timeless classic

Gravity Rush is simply the best game available on PlayStation Vita: it's innovative and visually amazing, with a compelling story and interesting characters. The gameplay itself capitalizes the hardware's features and offers an all new take on your typical free-roaming adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Addictive Game On The Psvita, 27 Mar. 2012

Hot Shots Golf is overall an outstanding game, bursting with fun, and enjoyable by gamers of all demographics. It's great to play at home or on the go, alone or online, in short bursts or for several hours. To anyone buying a Vita you can't go wrong in grabbing this along with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Addictive, 27 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first glance it seems a very close port, but Sega has given the players a bit more weight so they don't slide around the court anymore, while the original four seasons are joined by an exclusive bonus season. You also get all the chicken-collecting, bomb-serving, card-dealing minigames you might expect.

Virtua Tennis also benefits from Vita's lower resolution - the PS3 version's hard character models and shiny courts come out both warmer and softer.

You can choose between the familiar button controls or intuitive but twitchy touchscreen inputs, and change anytime - probably back to buttons.

In addition to all the modes of the original, there are a few 'VT Apps' that take advantage of the hardware: VR Match's first-person view lets you look around the court by moving your Vita; Touch Vs is an iPhone-style top-down mode that allows two players to face off with just one machine; VT Cam puts an AR player in your bedroom and invites you to take his photo (your in-game stalker Chris would be thrilled); and Gyro Ship has you aiming your ball at clay plates on a pirate ship, which moves as you tilt the handset.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fighting Game For The Psvita, 27 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I skipped this on the console as I felt it came out to close to the original's release. I was glad to hear it would be a launch title for the Vita as I was ready for it and the new characters. I was a big fan of what Capcom did with Marvel vs. Capcom 3. They definitely delivered on a long awaited continuation of a fan favorite. They also did their best to bring the full console experience to Sony's new handheld. Did they get it right? Oh hell yes!

First off, let me say this: 60 FRAMES PER SECOND. I have to give it to Capcom here. For them to take a highly stylized fighting game with a lot going on at once and keep the smoothness for a launch title bodes well for the Vita. This game truly shows off the beastly capabilities of Sony's new baby. The graphics, while toned down just a tad (literally, not much at all), and the combo eccentric-ness a shade lower than the console versions does nothing to make the Vita version outstanding in presentation. I used this game to show off the Vita to my friends. Just taking out Zero (my main!) and hitting some combos in practice mode made them wow. The difference between the PSP and Vita in terms of what it can do is established greatly here.

You'll find everything you're looking for here with some added features. The story mode is here as well as a new figurine fighting mode. The new mode isn't much to write home about but it can be fun if not just a time waster. Capcom also brought along all of the DLC and your paid-for PS3 versions won't work here. Buy it all again or fire up the big boy to use it. I was a sucker and re-bought a costume pack so I can play Zero as Mega Man X.

A new touch control mode is added to allow newcomers and lazy people to pull off huge combos and specials with ease. This makes for online play a bit one-sided. Sure, you can set it so you only fight against those using the same control method as you but if you run into a random match with a touch moder, you'll get slammed hard. Online works very well here and the lag is minimal to near nothing. As it has been a month since the Vita's release, I find the match finder to be a bit slower than it was but there is definitely a community playing.

Capcom sacrificed very, very little to bring Marvel vs. Capcom to the Vita. The presentation and overall quality of this launch title is staggering and is high on my list for best game on the Vita right now. Don't pass this up if you are a fan of fighting games and want something portable. If you're looking for ridiculously hard combos and cancel mechanics you may want to look at BlazBlue, however. UMvC3 is for the casual and hardcore fighter and comic fanboy. You'll be hard pressed to find something missing besides a character Capcom omitted (like a proper Mega Man!!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Game, 27 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mass Effect 2 (PS3) (Video Game)
Mass Effect 2 launches mid-action, with a breath-catchingly dramatic disaster on the SSV Normandy. It looks terrific - there's a noticeble step up in the quality of the graphics from Xbox to PS3 - and the game almost immediately gives you a perfect sci-fi moment. As Shepard heads to the bridge to rescue the pilot, Joker, you enter an area where the hull has been breached and the Normandy is open to space. Stars shine hard through the vacuum, the sound drops back to Shepard's ragged breathing, and there's no doubt at all that this is about you facing off against the vastness and emptiness of space.

Actually, it's not quite true that ME2 starts mid-action: to help out newcomers to the series, there's a DLC section that lets you make some of the choices that would have formed your character in the first Mass Effect. PC and Xbox players had the option to import the Shepard they made and nurtured in the first game (ME is big on customisation and permanence), so the DLC is some compensation for that.

But even if you choose to skip it and head straight to the main story, you'll still get to fiddle around with your Shepard's abilities and appearance until you make something you're happy with (or, possibly, something that looks so unsettlingly like yourself that you have to go back and start all over again). Shep can be male or female, a crack soldier or a biotics (that's psychic powers) expert, a war hero or a fractured sole survivor of a previous campaign - it's all up to you, and as you proceed through the story, you'll make more choices that contribute to your "Paragon" or "Renegade" status and influence the way other characters react to you.

The DLC also gives you the chance to bone up on the story, so newcomers don't need to spend all their in-game conversations for the first two hours flicking the dialogue options to "investigate" and getting the other characters to give you some exposition. (Short story: all organic life in the universe is under threat from something called the Reapers, and Shepard has been resurrected by human supremacist group Cerberus to lead the world-saving effort. How much faith you put in a group that's official considered a terrorist outfit, and its sinister leader the Illusive Man, is entirely your decision.)

Not that you'll ever regret stopping to chat. Mass Effect 2 is populated with some of the most engaging, well-acted space people you could hope to meet, and the script has been carefully designed to make clunking non-sequiturs a vanishingly rare occurrence. As you tour planets and space stations, assembling a crack team of galaxy saviours and meeting all manner of strange and sometimes sexy aliens, you'll also find endless sidequests and subplots to get drawn into. Even if you don't choose to take most of them on, their very existence helps to bolster the idea of the Mass Effect world as a functioning universe.

Because that's what makes Mass Effect 2 great. Not the outstanding action, the compelling story, the huge depth of interaction, or any of the other ways in which the game demonstrates its outrageous surfeit of quality. It's because this is a game so coherent, you start to believe that you could actually live in it. Which is a good thing, because you'll almost certainly end up doing so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Handheld In The Market, 23 Feb. 2012
First Of this is a beautiful device.

The Vita is a solid brick of computing power - efficient, effective and satisfying. There's weight to it: not too much to be cumbersome, but just enough to feel worth it. The screen is bright and crisp, the controls are responsive and it delivers the sort of handheld gaming experience that we've never seen before

It really does play like a console. The sticks aren't quite as fast as the Dual Shock, but they're fast enough, and nearly all of the PS3 controller's buttons are present here. Not once in any game did I feel like a single aspect was being simplified, and not once did it seem like I was playing a game that wouldn't have been right at home on a console.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game on vita, 23 Feb. 2012
Us uncharted franchise fans will not be disappointed with the series' first portable game. Though smaller, Golden Abyss is still the deep, varied and highly entertaining adventure we've come to expect, with almost nothing lost in the move.
this is a full Uncharted experience MUST BUY
