    After the disappointing Resistance: Burning Skies and the truly abysmal Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified, the Vita finally has a top shooter, which listens to the name of Killzone: Mercenary. Guerrilla Cambridge hit it out of the park with this fantastic handheld experience. It looks and plays great, its levels are varied and challenging, and the online multiplayer is hugely entertaining. If you own a Vita, you should own this game.

    If not for the excruciatingly long loading screens, this would have been the best PlayStation Vita title up to date. Wait, it actually still is. Innovative controls, a unique visual style and an open world worthy to explore… Buy this!

    What's that? Is that Activision cursing themselves because they've abandoned True Crime? Well, if they aren't, they should be! Sleeping Dogs is an absolutely fantastic game, which will definitely be fondly remembered as an example of the loads of fun a sandbox action game can deliver. Do not skip this one!

    The first truly brilliant PSN game since Journey blew everyone's mind last year. A unique experience you won't forget any time soon.

    Some pop-up and framerate issues are the only problems we've encountered, which is on itself quite spectacular. Assassin's Creed III is an interesting new step for the franchise, delivering a competent story, a number of great gameplay improvements and mind-blowing naval missions.

    Far Cry 3 is definitely one of the best shooters of the year, if not simply the best. Its environment is huge, the surprises and discoveries it offers plenty. The story is solid, the action superb and the RPG-elements well implemented. A must have for every shooter fan.

    Lara Croft returns in this franchise reboot, which juggles different gameplay elements, all well-executed and superbly balanced. The visuals and audio are top-notch and Lara is very well realized as a character. Long story short: a great game you should definitely pick up.

    Irrational Games did the impossible. They've created a world that rivals Rapture and built a story around it that is bound to intrigue everyone who picks this game up. The ending is an instant classic. The gameplay is challenging and varied, the graphics are fine (not perfect though) and both voice acting and soundtrack is extremely memorable. Buy this, you absolutely won't regret it.

    Hopefully not the last great game of this generation, but definitely one of the best of them. Nobody should miss out on this jaw-dropping masterpiece of epic proportions.

    After the formidable Origins, Ubisoft continues the rebooted Rayman franchise with Legends. Once again, the developer hits it out of the park. The interesting art style, the fun and accessible gameplay, and the gleeful soundtrack all add to the overall experience. It's a shame that there is no online multiplayer, but a number of competitive challenges more than make up for it.

    The long-awaited fifth episode in Rockstar's extremely popular franchise delivers on all fronts. It's one of those rare games that does everything absolutely right and therefore a purchase is definitely in order. What are you waiting for?

    A game that uses the PlayStation Vita very creatively, Tearaway is a lengthy, highly original and visually beautiful experience. The combat gets a bit repetitive after a while, but that shouldn't stop Vita owners from getting their hands on this title.

    Futurlab doubles down and delivers a sequel that beats its predecessor in quality on every level. A must have.

    Technically, this game isn't superb. Luckily, every other aspect of The Walking Dead Episode 2: Starved for Help is. Bloody action, though choices and a great story with well-developed characters make this well worth your while.

    An engaging story, extremely satisfying shoot-outs phenomenal graphics turn Max Payne 3 undoubtedly into one of the best shooters of 2012. It's a shame that Rockstar doesn't seem to know where to place their checkpoints.

    This is one of the few truly unique titles on the PlayStation Vita and you should definitely buy it. It's not perfect - save synching doesn't work the way it should and we sure would have wanted some more albums to lengthen the running time - but then again: nothing really is.

    A must have for the fans, a solid recommendation for newcomers. The best ice hockey game yet.

    It's a bit short and it doesn't look as good as its console counterpart, but other than that this is a great portable LBP game. You'll be making levels from the palm of your hand now... and you'll be surprised at how well it works.

    A fantastic game everyone should give a try. Be warned, though - you might just end up losing a big part of your social life and spend it (literally) walking around the vast continent of Pandora.

    Everything except for the audience and a lack of punishment for crashing in multiplayer has been improved, which makes F1 2012 the best Formula One game yet.

    Pretty much the best soccer game up to date. There's still room for improvement though... then again, there always will be.

    We can't say why Dishonored exceeds all expectations in a few sentences. Just buy it and lose yourself into the city of Dunwall, the most interesting videogame setting since BioShock's Rapture.

    NBA 2K13 proves that soccer games are not the only ones nearing perfection. This game offers a great virtual basketball experience, with smooth controls, a strong graphical presentation and an enormous amount of content.

    The fourth episode of Telltale's The Walking Dead game series delivers in the same way the others did: telling a great, emotional story and offering the player some really tough choices along the way. If you've enjoyed the previous outings, you shouldn't allow yourself to miss out on this one.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    We've gotten quite emotionally invested into the characters of this great videogame series and now Telltale delivers a worthy pay-off. You won't forget this anytime soon, we promise - and neither will you regret a purchase.

    If all you ever dreamt of is to starr in a Ghibli movie – to be cartoonified and just be able to control whatever happens – you shouldn’t miss out on Ni No Kuni. It features extensive gameplay amidst an atmospheric world topped with a compelling story. It has everything a modern RPG needs to satisfy a gamer’s every need.

    Based on the hilariously over-the-top action movies from the eighties, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon knocks it out of the park. It's a great futuristic shooter resembling Far Cry 3 in gameplay and adding a huge amount of cheesy oneliners, dumb action and cheap entertainment. Blood Dragon is a lot of fun and an experience you won't forget anytime soon.

    This game once started as a great MiNi and is now transformed into a great title for the PlayStation Vita. It's an addicting an challenging experience that will stay with you for a long time. An annoying bug may temper the excitement somewhat, but ultimately, that is of little importance.

    A tribute to the eighties, Hotline Miami impresses with a fantastic soundtrack, dito graphics and a fair amount of challenge to keep hardcore gamers busy for days to come.

    Blizzard finally makes its reappearance on the console and they do this successfully. Diablo III plays brilliantly and the added co-operative feature is impressive. Even if you have already played this game on PC, we'd still recommend you to try this one out.
