E3 2011: Little Deviants - Official Trailer

    Little Deviants has great potential as a franchise with its range of incredibly fresh and entertaining mini-games, though we can't see players spending too much in their company in this first instalment.

    A "showcase game" that was created in order to advertise PSVita's technology. With a right price tag and some truly funny and enjoyable mini-games it's a safe bet for a day-one purchase.

    Sometimes the touch controls work magnificently, like in a game of Wac-A-Mole. At other times, though, they drive you crazy because the creators tried to cram every single feature the Vita has to offer into their collection of minigames. [March 2012, p.52]

    Little Deviants has become the Wii Play of the PlayStation Vita; quite boring, not challenging and just not that fun to play. The multiplayer however can be great at times. But that's all there's to it.

    Don't get me wrong, there is some fun to had with Little Deviants, however the $30-$40 price tag hurts this collection of mini games. If they were on an iOS device, I might pay a dollar for one or two of them.
  6. Between the travel sickness, the lurid colours and the nightmare-inducing soundtrack, one level is the playable equivalent of food poisoning. Another over-used puzzle has you rolling around collecting stars as time ticks away in a manner horribly reminiscent of a smartphone app that would cost around £17 less.

    The largest issue is that the games simply aren't much fun. It's clear that players are expected to repeatedly play each game, hoping for a high score and the elusive gold rating, but I found myself intentionally failing after achieving a bronze, the minimum requirement for unlocking new games. "New games," might be a little generous, actually, considering many of them are simply new levels for game types you've already played.

    Decent game. Good PS3 like graphics and controls, AR does not require cards (thank god) but the rear touchpad mini games are hard to do. ADecent game.

A fine start for sony, but minor improvements needed for future cartoon games like little deviants. Expand

Not exactly sure what Sony saw in this considering how much they pushed and advertised it but it lacks the kind of charm and addictive gameplay Escape Plan, Hot Shots Golf, or Star Dust Delta. Considering how much cheaper two of those games are, I have trouble understanding why anyone would choose Little Deviants over those at all. There are some great games in the Vita launch lineup, but this isn't one of them. Expand

    Little Deviants is basically a collection of short games (most are to long to really call mini-games) that utilise the many different featuresLittle Deviants is basically a collection of short games (most are to long to really call mini-games) that utilise the many different features of the PS Vita. Some of these mini-games are more involved, and more enjoyable than others, but none really offer any long term appeal. If you can pick it up cheap, or even free as it is now often bundled in with the console, it might give you something to pass 20 minutes on the bus or train but there are much better titles available on the PS Vita.
