"Developers won’t get good at making games at the Vita for a while"

Reviewer is an ass, confirmed.

Indeed. It's one thing to judge the game itself, but it's another thing entirely to make an asinine comment while staring into the crystal ball. Comments like that just detract the audience from the review.

I don't think the author is wrong. It took a while for developers to get good at developing on the PS3, but now the PS3 has some of the best games this generation.

I tried the Uncharted Demo on the PS VITA a couple nights ago at a friend's place, and while I was definitely pleased with the graphics, I know that they will get better as time goes on. The one thing that I hated about the Uncharted Demo was the touch screen controls. I felt that they were totally unnecessary. Personally I wish they had kept them out of the game. Also, Scoping in with the rear touch pad didn't feel right at all.

This is a perfect example of having webspace does NOT a critic make.

except this happens with every console ever. later games are always higher quality than games from early in the consoles life.

"...are always..."

Mario 64 would like a word with you.

Agreed. It's been mentioned that Vita is easy to develop for. It has more to do with lack of creativity for Golden Abyss. It always takes about a year or so after a system launches for the good games to start coming out.

it's still a good score though...

Don't like a game made by the company I worship? You are an ass.

Uh, do you think the developers have reached their peak already with the launch titles? Is Uncharted 3 better than the original Uncharted?

ff9 and ff12 during the end of their respective console life were a visual marvel. This means that it would really take a while to optimize the vita. But gravity rush and golden abyss had me impressed.

Why do reviewers keep comparing this to Uncharted 2 or 3? Sony Bend took inspiration from the very first Uncharted, remember that game? The look & feel of Golden Abyss is very similar to Drakes Fortune. Before Naughty Dog mastered their craft they too had to start from the beginning.

Wait until the 2 or 3rd Vita game than start comparing it to Uncharted 2 or 3. Golden Abyss is awesome! This reviewer has no clue i'm sorry.
