Best PS Vita Exclusive 2012

Gravity Rush - Best PS Vita Exclusive 2012


Platform(s): PS Vita

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment of America

Developer: SCE Japan Studio

The game industry needs more titles that take risks and try to open things up. While not all creativity is inherently good, and innovation is only one factor among many in considering a game's overall greatness, Gravity Rush came to the Vita bringing heaps of both, in the best ways. Most who've played through it will testify that it features some of the most unique and interesting gameplay of this year. The meat of it sounds so simple at first: point in a direction, press a button, and the targeted area becomes Kat's new point of gravity. Getting this power in hand, however, provides a better game experience than its basic description may indicate.

Sending Kat "falling" in 18 different directions made even the most simple transportation a joy.  Surprisingly good controls and camera work made it amazingly fun to challenge every mission and explore every last part of her huge world.

Gravity Rush is an example of a title that delivers a gaming experience all its own, and it does so with quality that soars as high as its leading lady. For providing a great experience while adding some flavor to gaming in general, Gravity Rush is hearby named the best PS Vita exclusive of 2012.
