    Finally! Sine Mora has arrived on the PSN. It looks and feels completely like the Xbox 360 version, except the new game mode, that has been implanted. The PS Vita offers the touchscreen as a controller, which is by far not as funny as it sounds. Sine Mora is the last Must Have of the year 2012.

    Sine Mora is an addicting shooter the first time through, but it's very short and only the most hardcore shooter fans will get the most out of it.

    Sine Mora certainly isn't for everyone. It's a relatively oldschool game and it's pretty challenging. The story doesn't amount to much and the lack of a cross-buy feature also doesn't work in Sine Mora's favor, but apart from that, the game is a lot of fun.

    There are a few irksome issues, including an abnormal amount of dialogue and some seemingly cheap design choices, but this remains a great downloadable title and one that's destined to push you.

    Sine Mora is a quality title, from the look to the feel of it, and there could be a lot of useful comparisons between it and other members of the bullet hell genre.

    Frantic and spectacular, Sine Mora for Vita slightly downsizes its graphics but in return it offers the perfect portable experience for any shoot 'em up fan out there.

    Sine Mora is a unique take on shoot 'em ups and if you're a masochist, the arcade and challenge modes are perfect for you. It's a welcome addition to the genre, and somewhat of a surprise title - especially this late in the console cycle.

    Sine Mora is not a long game, but it has a lot replayability thanks to it's several modes of play, particularly if you're eager to challenge yourself beyond simply finishing the game. I feel this game should be experienced and enjoyed by all fans of the arcade shooter genre due to its detail and production values.

    Would definately recommend this game, similar thoughts to Shay, the enemies blending into the background can be annoying, but hey, a challenge considered:) quite an interesting shoot em up. Full Review »

    Pros:
    Graphically, very nice and cool, definitely look HD
    Interesting concept by adding a story mode to a shoot-em-up.
    Bosses are
    interesting and cool.
    The ability to slow time is a very cool addition IMO. Cons:
    Targets blend into background at times, so it is hard to identify until they start shooting at you
    No touch functions. Granted, it is not really needed, but would love to see some cool implementation :)
