Top 25 Vita Games (#10-6)

#10- Severed


Guest Written by Jay Petrequin

Hey, Jay Petrequin here to help Caleb in a moment of Not Liking A Game As Much As I Do. When I
played Severed for review a few months back, I didn’t really know what to expect out of Drinkbox
Studios’ second Vita adventure. What I got was one of the coolest games to make real, substantial use
of the Vita’s touch screen. The simple act of cutting enemies down and figuring out the ways in which their character designs are planned with free-directional swiping in mind is insanely engaging in Severed. I had a habit this past Spring of playing the game in the hall while waiting for a class, and I think I scared a few classmates with my own fervent joy at slicing dudes down. It also helps that the enemy and world design comes together in a really fluid way, creating a sort of netherworld that doesn’t seem to draw too heavily on any one real-world point of reference. If you want something that utilizes some of what makes the Vita unique, all while balancing strategy and engaging combat, look no further than Severed.

Caleb has been playing games since he was born... in the middle of the PlayStation 1 Era. Despite his young age, he enjoys all sorts of games from all sorts of eras, but he does prefer the PlayStation brand over everything else. Eager to talk about games to anyone and everyone who will listen, Caleb is excited to be a part of the HPP team! You can find him on twitter @caleb4tribe. Favorite games include: Persona 4 Golden, The Last of Us, BioShock Infinite, Portal 2, and Metal Gear Solid 3.
