    It is worth every penny for those unable to get their hands on a digital version for PS Vita. [Aug 2013, p.77]

    This iPad port, while long overdue, is superior to the iPhone version (primarily due to larger screen) and should be considered the preferred iOS experience (assuming you have an iPad 2). Second, while the iPad version makes improvements, it still doesn't match the feel of the original PSX version, which has yet to be duplicated on any platform.
