ESRB Rating: E
The other game I wanted to talk about today is Super Stardust Delta, another gem from the geniuses at Housemarque.  Delta is another addition to the Stardust series, and its nothing less than perfection.  From gorgeous visuals, to the super tight gameplay, this is just another great game to own for Vita.
S&S; Review: Super Stardust Delta Presentation: Super Stardust has been known for its vibrancy and stellar visuals.  On the Vita's gorgeous OLED screen, it only gets better.  Blasting things in space never looked so good, even on the PS3, the Vita just blows it away.  Your eyes will melt with the heightened intensity of the colors on the smaller screen.  Audio is great, the pulsating beats mesh perfectly with the over-the-top visuals.  If you're a fan of techno themed night clubs, you will notice a huge comparison.  Its easy to get lost in the gorgeous visuals, and most likely you will.
S&S; Review: Super Stardust Delta Core Gameplay:
The gameplay in Super Stardust has always been an arcady experience from beginning to end.  The difficulty is tough, you will need to master all the mechanics for you to make a long run.  At its core, its a basic twin stick shooter, with a lot of high score chasing in the midst.  The planet has five phases, if you can make it that far, you are one of the few gaming gods out there.  Enemies will also change as you progress through the game, they become smarter and there numbers become immense.  It has two concepts enforced in the game, the ability to survive and to get the highest score possible.  Building multipliers with grow your score exponentially.  A new edition in the game is the coincidentally named Delta mode, which will give you the ability to use some of the Vita's cool features.  You will be using the front and back touch pads to use your missiles and black holes.  Its completely optional too, if you want the original formula, stick with Pure mode.
S&S; Review: Super Stardust Delta Final Thoughts:
Super Stardust Delta is a must have for any Vita owner, or any fan of twin-stick shooters.  With a superb presentation and rock solid gameplay, this is another top notch Vita release. You just don't get to see this high of quality launch titles for any type of system, it looks like the Vita is breaking barriers.
Final Score = 9/10 Email: [email protected] Twitter: @iSamKulii Apps: S&S Reviews on Apple and Android Stores PSNID:sameo452008
