Why should you play it on PS Vita?
Well, Velocity Ultra is PS Vita-exclusive title, so it is the only way to play. There is the original which is also playable on Vita, as well as PS3 and PSP. However, Ultra feels much more fluid and responsive compared to the original. Ultra is better in every way. What makes Velocity Ultra great is how all of the different mechanics come together in the levels. Moving at speed whilst shooting enemies and taking out enemies feels sublime. Velocity Ultra is an excellent game and it's unimaginable being better on any other platform. The controls work great, even the touch implemented teleporting which isn't forced on you.
Velocity Ultra also has improved graphics and a more consistent art style compared to the original. Running at native resolution, it is a big improvement. What Velocity is great for is playing at both short bursts and for longer periods of time. With over 50 levels including bonus levels, there isn't a shortage of replay value, especially with Ultra having Trophies, including a Platinum to earn.
Velocity Ultra is one of the best games on PS Vita, simple as that. More great news is that there is a sequel coming next year called Velocity 2X, which is coming to Vita and PS4.
