Excellent, excellent game! I'm just finishing up my Veteran playthrough of KZ:M.

Too bad it got hammered in the reviews. Typical, though.

"This Vita game? It's really awesome, but it isn't quite as awesome as a console version for...reasons. Therefore, 6/10"

"What? A NEW 3DS GAME?!? It's pretty great...for a handheld title. The graphics are great...for a handheld title. But, it is Nintendo, guize! 10/10!!!"

EXACTLY. Nobody takes away points from 3DS games for not being as "X" as a console game yet the VITA does.

Ugh. I agree with you *rolls eyes* .. bias was always there with the 3DS despite the mutitude of repeated titles Nintendo kept providing. I guess they are obsessing on first party releases on the selling handheld now since they can't do anything good for the Wii U (super mario 3d world? pft.). I bought KZ: M at full price and up until now, it's still worth every penny. It wasn't technically "hammered" though. a lot of reviews gave it an 8-9/10 or 4-5/5 scores based on respective score caps.

Fair enough. I guess I'm remembering quite a few 6/10s and 7/10s specifically because it was "a good shooter, but not as good as a console shooter". You are right. There was a lot of praise for Mercenary as well.

And on the same note, I do own a 3DS and I love the 3DS. But the review bias is overwhelming. A lot of 3DS games get a free pass just because they're Nintendo.

My favorite portable game this year, already platinum'ed it and I'm still putting several hours into it a day...

If you've put it off until now... BUY IT.

Got min at gamestop for 20$ :D

Can't beat that for $20! Picked up Batman Origins for the Vita on there for $25. Not a bad deal and was waiting for that one to get a price cut.

I almost bought this but I got Kingdom Hearts HD instead.
