20. Unit 13
This third-person shooter from Zipper Interactive is an underrated gem. It unsurprisingly plays strikingly similar to the SOCOM games and rewards gamers who take a thoughtful and tactical approach. Its mission structure is also set up perfectly for gaming on the go. Those looking for quick bursts of intense action-packed fun will find plenty of value in Unit 13.
19. Hot Shots Golf World Invitational
The Hot Shots Golf games are known for their lighthearted fun and cute art style, both of which translate perfectly to PlayStation Vita in World Invitational. Better yet, it boasts a solid online multiplayer option, plenty of goodies to unlock, and lots of challenges that will have you swinging that club for hours on end. If you're a fan of golfing games, or even if you're not, this charming sports game is worth a look.
18. Velocity Ultra
This stellar high-definition remake of Velocity serves up one of the best portable shoot 'em up experiences around. In the game, you are tasked with rescuing ships, all the while blowing stuff up, navigating around obstacles, and teleporting like crazy. It's incredibly designed and thanks to the improved visuals, looks absolutely great on Vita's gorgeous display.
17. Uncharted: Golden Abyss
Who says you can't have an epic, console-like experience on the go? Uncharted: Golden Abyss serves up a fully-fledged action adventure on par with the Naughty Dog-developed console entries. The visuals are absolutely stunning, the set piece moments are everything you could hope for, and the dual sticks make the combat and platforming a breeze. With added touch functionality, there are plenty of other control options as well, which is never a bad thing.
16. Sound Shapes
Musical platforming may sound like a weird concept at first, but the ingenious game that is Sound Shapes proves that it very much is a great way to kill a few hours. Jumping and sticking to surfaces, collecting little musical orbs along the way, all the while listening to an incredible soundtrack, is nothing short of euphoric. The art style is great too. Simple, but incredibly creative.
