I originally bought my Vita to play PSone JRPGs as well as to play shooters. It’s been 5 months now, and though I’ve done lots of the former, I haven’t really found any good shooters that work on the trusty handheld. Borderlands 2 is a superb game, but it chugs noticeably on Vita; Uncharted: Golden Abyss runs and looks great, but I’m not too hot on the gameplay (More on that later though, I plan to review Uncharted when I finish it.). Salvation comes in the form of Killzone Mercenary, touted by some as the only ‘true’ shooter on the Vita. I got it when I was on holiday in Singapore just over a month ago, and having just completed the campaign, I can attest to its quality.
