The Good: Being the first true FPS game for the Vita, the controls worked out great. The touch screen uses were a little awkward at first, but you could get used to them throughout the game. There is a good collection of weapons and collectibles that help the game retain some replay value. The story is a bit plain, but anyone looking for a more detailed story can build it up through the miscellaneous details that are hidden throughout the game.
The Bad: The trophies are extremely easy. I am no hardcore gamer, but have managed to obtain all but one in less than a day. The online features require you to buy an online pass for 10 bucks off PSN, which could be frustrating if you wanted a platinum trophy for this. The single MP trophy isn't even a grinder, it is merely to play one online match, win or lose, and hardly warrants $10. The online play aside is ravaged with various bugs ranging from not being able to kill or be killed, all the way to causing players to be stuck at a spawn point as a sitting duck without the ability to defend yourself. The online features also feature the infamous NAT 2 problem that may require extensive research into port forwarding or putting your PS Vita into the DMZ on your router.
Aside from those negatives, it is still a fun game to play in SP if you want to just play a good FPS to eat time in waiting rooms, between classes, etc.
Good game, the touch screen interface integration isn't very practical to use while playing, feels like a gimmick. Not a compelling story. Well executed in some respects and it's a polished title but I was just hoping for more.
