    Really enjoyed the Vita version of this great game. I was surprised at how well it plays and how smooth the frame rate is considering how many zombies can fit onto the screen at any one time. Also find it to be quite tense when there's a lot happening. One of my favourite Vita games, while writing this I've completed it 6 times so far. I've certainly gotten my monies worth! I'd recommend this to anyone who has a Vita and wants a great game to play on the go. Keep them coming! Expand

    Dead Nation on the Vita is one of my favorite games. As an owner of all three versions (PS4, PS3, and Vita), I can honestly say the Vita version is my favorite way to play the game. Everything is highly detailed and the game overall looks fantastic. Despite what people are saying, the screen is not too small and the game is not too dark to enjoy on the Vita.

    After first playing the PS4
    version I was worried about the switch to the Vita, especially the controls. But they work flawlessly. The only drawback is the melee attack is moved from R1 to a face button, meaning we cant exactly change direction while going for a melee attack. A minor inconvenience that's easily overlooked when you release you're playing the full game on a handheld. Expand

    Dead Nation will bring you a big load of zombies to shoot down. It's fun to look for loot in cars and the world really looks rough and dark, like the world is supposed to be after an event like this. It is not easy to take this videogame outside, because of the darkness, plus it is a straight PS3-port, so no extra's of the PS4-port.

    Dead Nation isn’t a bad game, it just isn’t a good fit for the Vita.

    While Dead Nation is showing signs of age, there's still life in the old girl yet.
