After comments on this video and elsewhere, I feel I need to clarify a few things.
This is a first impressions series. Not a full on review. I have never claimed these are full reviews of games. If I ever do a "full" review, I mention it. I don't get the time to play these games through completely to call these fair and honest reviews, these are only first impressions from the first few hours.
I willingly admit I'm not the best gamer - I make the game look harder than it might be for you? That's because I'm just not great. Never claimed these videos are master classes in the art of playing games. Not to mention doing commentary over a video consistently makes games a fair few times harder. It's not easy.
Everything I say in the video is my opinion. The only thing I had to compare this port to was my experiences in the vastly superior PC version. However, I did say that I think the game is fun, and I will probably play through it on Vita over the next few months again. I still believe that people who want a brighter future for the Vita should buy it and show Sony what they're willing to support. Then again, you're probably willing to buy it even if you like the look of the port - don't mind the framerate, the toned down effects, etc? Then you're probably going to have a good time.
One more thing...please don't use me as your single point of reference when it comes to game buying decisions if you can avoid it. There's probably a lot more gameplay videos and footage out there for you to have a look at. I might make a game that you'd like a lot look like complete tosh. I try not to, but sometimes I do. I'm still not very good at this even after two years of doing it.
