Decent scores. Kinda bummed that WipEout got as low as a 7 as, to me, it seems like one of the better games available at launch

After the SSD review I'm even more hyped for it!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder man. That's why I don't pay much attention to reviews. If I ever do, I only listen to Classic Game Room's (which to me sounds like the only decent reviewer anywhere). Give him a watch! (Although he doesn't have Vita reviews yet I think).
Still, I think my launch games will be Marvel vs Capcom and Rayman Origins. I can live without Uncharted until it drops from that ridiculous $50 price point.

True that. I don't put too much on reviews and I'm definitely still excited for WipEout. Studio Liverpool have confirmed they will be patching for improved load times as well, so there goes that complaint :D

I'm going the same route with regards to Uncharted. Despite being an UC fanboy, I can wait

It depends on the actual reviewer for me, at IGN

Gamespot gave Uncharted a 7. Seems about right from them

I'm not going to debate the UGA score. It has its faults, definitely doesn't mirror the PS3. So I think a 7 is reasonable as well. Hell, you can't even throw a grenade back, that's a few years back!

No Gravity Rush yet. Maybe in a few days.

MNR got flogged. Sony San Diego really messed it up. I think they're just going to be a one hit wonder as far as MNR.

The controls and load times are what basically kill wipeout for me.

Launch titles are usually rushed titles, so most of them are going to suck or be less polished. I'm impressed for what UGA is though and I'm also going to be impressed with unit13. I feel that game is a 7 or above. Its going to be good.

a 7 is ok for a 30 dollar game. People shouldn't listen to reviews as if they are the gospel. And if they do anyway, they should take into consideration that a 7 on a vita is not the same on a console. You're spending on average, 20 dollars less for titles than you are for consoles. If modnation racers is a seven and I can get it for 30, then that's not really a ripoff for what type of gameplay it brings. It just disappointing about the online though.

Remember game review scores are subjective. Every game reviewer rates it based on their own opinion on it. You may like the game more or less.

And they've delivered on their promise

Zone mode looks quick. Non-zone modes take about 40 seconds which is better than before. Feel better about my purchase now, lol
