Your wrestling hero has a wide range of attack maneuvers, from suplexes to pistols to the top, which he will never tire of doing. He can also, for example, transform into a chicken.
A platform adventure exquisitely presented by the Media Molecule team, and a reminder of how talented the LittleBigPlanet team is. Tearaway uses all facets of PS Vita functionality in a way that does not feel baked, but the most important thing is that it is a 3D adventure with very high standards.
Person 4: Golden
This port of Person 4 of the PS2 received credit for a big boost in sales of the Vita, and it's not hard to see why.

Metal Gear Solid HD
A fantastic package that can easily stretch beyond 50 hours. The stars of the show are Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, iconic games of yesteryear that now shine in a wonderful HD, but as a bonus you also get the original Metal Gear (1987) and Metal Gear 2 (1990).
