This is by all technicalities a working version of Borderlands 2 on the PlayStation Vita, but the dipping frame rate and the formatting miscues keep this game from bumping elbows with the best that the PS Vita has to offer. Though it's still missing a great deal of content, at least gamers can transfer their saves and still play this with one friend.

We like

  • Mission-based gameplay superb in portable form
