    I have to say that Sumioni: Demon Arts is easily one of my favorites on the Vita despite its less than stellar inner workings.

    All in all, Sumioni is a very good game, but one hurt by its limited scope. It allows you to do a nice variety of things with the touch screen, and even made great use of the back panel, but its strict formula gets old pretty quickly. Its $20 price tag feels a tad steep given that, but most of what's offered is done really well, so I think you'll get your money's worth out of it if you like hack and slash games with some platforming and even a touch of bullet hell shooter gameplay thrown in.

    Sumioni: Demon Arts is one of those hidden gems of the Playstation Vita that the market analysts radar unfortunately make it increasingly difficult to locate.

But at all, i must say, thatbthis game is cool and imteresting. Full Review »
