Minimum Review
With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

GameRevolution's Top 25 PS Vita Games - 2013 Edition

Posted on Monday, December 30 @ 12:00:00 Eastern by GR_Staff


It may not be the hot seller Sony had hoped, but that doesn't negate the fact that PlayStation Vita is still very much a fantastic piece of portable gaming hardware, home to loads of great games. With a multitude of built-in features, plenty of power under the hood, and a gorgeous display, Sony's handheld truly offers a console-quality experience on the go. That said, it's also home to a number of unique indie games that round out its library nicely. Here are the 25 best titles money can buy on the powerful little device.

25. Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Last year's racer from Criterion Games is easily one of the finest in its genre, and very few compromises were made in bringing it to Sony's handheld. Most Wanted is a visual marvel, boasting blistering fast car chases, a massive city to explore, and some of the best car handling ever conceived. If you're a fan of racing games, this one is an absolute staple, especially is you're looking for a quick fix while on the go.



24. Lumines: Electronic Symphony


The Lumines titles are some of the most addictive puzzle games around. Despite being a block-based puzzler, Lumines: Electronic Symphony is absolutely stunning, thanks to some brilliant art direction and the Vita's vibrant screen. Couple that with an amazing soundtrack, and you'll find yourself lost within the experience for hours on end. If only the game supported an online multiplayer mode...



23. BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend


Thanks to PlayStation Vita's excellent d-pad, fighting games are an absolute blast to play on the device. BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend is easily one of the platform's best, with crisp visuals, responsive gameplay, and a cast of excellent and diverse fighters. It's got a fantastic soundtrack that fans of the franchise will instantly recognize, and serves as the perfect accompaniment to the super fast gameplay. 



22. Escape Plan


Making excellent use of PlayStation Vita's touch functionality, Escape Plan from developer Fun Bits Interactive, offers one of the most creative and innovative experiences on the platform. With a bleak yet charming art style starring two unforgettable characters, it's hard not to love this game on the basis of its aesthetic alone. Thanks to some incredible puzzle design, it's actually quite fun to play too.



21. WipEout 2048


Despite offering one of the fastest racing experiences on the market, WipEout 2048 runs like butter on Sony's handheld, serving as a true testament to the device's power and the talent at the now closed Studio Liverpool. It's got a great online mode and excellent track design. Trust me, if you're a fan of racing games of this ilk, you'll be hooked on 2048 for hours upon end.
