    Joe Danger is an absolutely perfect fit for the Vita, the small courses making it the ideal game to play either in short chunks or larger blasts depending on your situation.

    Take everything great from the PS3 release, add characters, levels, and features that were introduced in Joe Danger 2, and you have a game that holds up great even four years after its original release.

    It is hard to criticise Joe Danger, the game is as good as it has ever been – and it is arguably ‘Best on Vita’ when it compares to other versions of the title available on other platforms.

    Fun gameplay and decent level design mean that it's well worth checking out, but rushing in again at full price may end up being a risk that even the bravest stunt rider should think twice about.

With a large amount of content, fine-tuned gameplay, and levels that are great for gaming on the go, it's a perfect fit for Sony's handheld. It's addictive and had me going back through levels multiple times in order to collect all the stars.

    If you're looking for a fantastic game for your Vita then look no further. You'll be hard-pressed to find another game on the system with this amount of content that's this much fun. My overall score for it is a 9.7/10.

    Joe Danger Vita is a port of the original PS3 game which came out in 2010. The game is packed with all of the content of the original versionJoe Danger Vita is a port of the original PS3 game which came out in 2010. The game is packed with all of the content of the original version and more… minus the multiplayer mode.
    Joe Danger looks great on the Vita’s screen. The colours are vibrant and the game looks very extremely crisp. The character models and the backgrounds look superb in all there cartoon glory, it is a shame that there are only a small number of background and that they are replayed over and over again. It would have been interesting to see what else the artists of Joe Danger are capable of.
    The load times are quick and the frame rate is solid, although the only exception is during the race mode where the game noticeably starts to lag. The presentation overall is really well done, even though the game doesn’t allow for custom music.
    The game controls well on the Vita also, the control scheme is almost identical to the PS3 versions. The level structure of Joe Danger makes the game great for gaming on the go in short bursts.
    The Vita version is kind of like a Game of the year edition, even though it’s not actually branded like that. This is because it includes all the content of the original game as well as addition features, such as new levels such in the Directors cut. This brings the total amount of levels to 84, with each level containing multiple challenges; there is a lot of content in Joe Danger for a low asking price.
    The gameplay of Joe Danger is simple, race through the level, performing tricks and complete challenges. Anyone how has played games such as Trials will be right at home with the mechanics of the game, although Joe Danger is much more forgiving than Trials since you don’t have to land perfectly every time in order to continue.
    What makes the gameplay fun is the variety of obstacles to Joe has to overcome in order to complete levels. The difficulty ramps up steadily during the game and towards the end Joe’s skills are seriously tested.
    Each level is different providing new and fun challenges for Joe. Every chapter ends with a race between Joe and several A.I. opponents. While the races are fun, especially since you get to punch other players in the face, it does make me wish that a multiplayer component was added to the game. Seriously though the punching thing never gets old.
    Joe Danger offers a level editor which provides the users with a ton of props available from the campaign, the editor may not be as big say little big planet but it does provide plenty of options for users. Disappointingly though, you cannot share and download levels with the general public.
    Overall Joe Danger is an excellent addition to the Vita’s ever growing library. It offers plenty content including trophies, characters, a special hard mode, online leaderboards and much more for a very low price, that is why it gets an A grade. Joe Danger is one of Septembers Playstation Plus titles so make sure to download it.
