    There is simply no better way to spend your money on the Vita platform right now. Slick visuals, a rocking score, and simple-yet-addictive gameplay will keep Super Stardust Delta in rotation on your system for a long, long time.

    A fantastic game that perfectly suits PS Vita by offering one of the best twin-stick shooter experiences on the go

    To me, Super Stardust Delta is all about the Arcade mode, and the Arcade mode is simply amazing. The gameplay is solid, and the graphics and sound are astounding. If you want a cheap, entertaining demonstration of what the Vita is capable of, hold off on Uncharted and try out Super Stardust Delta.

    Despite the lack of new features Housemarque really knows how to create intensive action games. The low price point is enough to recommend Super StarDust Delta to all dual stick shooting game fans out there.
  5. As a twin-stick shooter, it's inferior to the tighter, more ingenious Geometry Wars, but boosting clean through a massive iceberg is ace. [May 2012, p.81]

    Super Stardust Delta doesn't deliver anything entirely new, but it's a refined variant of one of the best twin-stick shooters around that can now be played on the go.

    The dual-stick shooter impresses from both gameplay and visual standpoints, without bringing anything new to the genre.

    This game is a must buy for anyone who owns a PSV!!! The game play and the additional features thanks to the new inputs makes this better than the PS3 version. Visually the game looks amazing and the fun and additive nature of the game makes it perfectly suited for a handheld. Quick load times and fun jump into the action and enjoy style of the game makes it perfect for car trips across the city or where ever. The price of the game is like icing on the cake, when you consider its only $10 you really can't go wrong. A MUST BUY!!! Also has the options to play with PSV's new inputs or a "pure" mode that is exactly the same as its big brother on the PS3. LOVE IT!! Expand

    Hard to imagine how such a conceptually simple game can be just... so... dang... fun. Absolutely gorgeous visual married to gameplay that is equal parts exhilarating and addictive. Some great additions to the PS3 version (black holes, new modes, missiles) and, thanks to the dual sticks, about 200x better than the PSP version. At $10 for the basic game, an easy, easy recommendation. Expand

    This game deserves a nine for alot of very good reasons. This game, in my opinion, was the best launch title for the VITA and it really pissed me off that no-one was aware of how good it was that i knew. The graphics are a visual masterpiece for my eyes to feast on. The gameplay is very arcade styled giving a real flair when playing it and allowing for a exhilarating experience. It also gives some of the best boss battles i've seen in some time, but when changing over to the mini games you can vary the playing styles. It also is fairly cheep, which is a massive upside. This is a must buy. Expand

    Super Stardust Delta may not be as big as some of the other Vita games but it is one of the best. The graphics are impressive and the soundtrack is great. The twin stick gameplay is fluid and faced paced with the accessibility and addictiveness that makes it a superb portable game. Expand

    One of the best games on PS Vita. It has a small download size and provides hours of great fun. Visuals are amazing and the gameplay is just so intense. There are also leaderboards with which you can compare your scores with your friends. This is a must buy for the PS Vita, don't miss it. Expand

    I really love this game. It's so conceptually simple, and yet it a lot of fun! Love the music and the graphics too! Can't really think of any major negatives besides the fact that when you're playing in Delta mode, you can easily accidentally trigger a move. Expand
