Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

GameRevolution's Top 25 PS Vita Games - 2013 Edition

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



10. Assassin's Creed III: Liberation


The Assassin's Creed games have gone on to become a staple franchise in this industry, and the series finally made the jump to handhelds with Liberation. Serving up a stellar experience that made little compromises in its transition to Vita, Liberation is not only a visual and gameplay achievement, but it also stars a powerful female protagonist.



9. Killzone Mercenary


The first-person shooter genre never fit particularly well on a handheld... until Killzone Mercenary came onto the scene. Taking full advantage of PlayStation's Vita's incredible power and dual sticks, this portable shooter succeeded where games like Resistance: Burning Skies and Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified failed. If you're looking for a solid FPS on the go, this is undoubtedly your best option.



8. Tearaway


The game that perhaps makes the very best use of nearly all the bells and whistles packed into Vita has got to be Media Molecule's charming little adventure, Tearaway. Seriously, this game will have you grinning from ear to ear in childlike wonder as you tap along the device's rear touch to see your finger tear through the paper world. It's insanely creative and even more charming than LBP, if you can believe that.



7. Muramasa Rebirth


Those looking for a work of visual splendor for their Vita simply have to purchase Muramasa Rebirth. This excellent action role-playing game re-designed to take advantage of Sony's handheld hardware is an absolute joy to look at and play. There are loads of different weapons and attacks you can acquire to take down your enemies, which are incredibly detailed and varied in their own right.



6. Soul Sacrifice


Keiji Inafune, the brilliant mind behind Mega Man, decided to make a dark and gripping Monster Hunter-inspired experience for PlayStation Vita called Soul Sacrifice. The result is a twisted action game that offers one of the deepest gameplay experiences you'll find on the platform. It's got a great story, an incredible co-op component, and some of the best audio around.
