    An open-world battle racer with more crash-bang-wallop than a brass band in a bar-room brawl. It just needs a smidgen more dev to realise its full potential.

    Killzone: Mercenary is the best first-person shooter on the Vita, even though that's not saying much. It feels great, looks outstanding, and has a hugely addictive online multiplayer mode.

    Stunning to look at and play, but viciously tough to beat, Pulse: Volume One's relative lack of content and replay incentive is the only dissonance in an otherwise perfect cadence.
