What a great game, actually much better than I expected. Been a while since I last played a Splinter Cell game but I can't remember ever enjoying them as much as this one.

Busy day yesterday (moved to a new and much better apartment), but i bought Ni no Kuni on PSN for 20 euros on the day before. Love the sales on PSN. Would've gotten Way of the samurai 4 for the same price but my back catalog is so huge i dont think i'd ever have time to play it.

Actually, you have a Wii U and you didnt get that version? Didnt you play the demo? The game isnt half as fun without touch screen controls. Its Wii U, Vita or bust.
But oh well... too late.

Why would you want touch screen controls in a platform game? Hell, why would you want touch screen controls ever? Xbox 360 wins.

That tells me you havent played the demo. Its assynchronous play. You rotate levels and move platforms so you can advance. On the 360/PS3 this is all automated with one button. You're not interacting with the game world at all.
Besides that with the track record of input delay issues, i wouldnt risk buying any platformers on the 360.

Theres a demo on psn. Go play that before acting like snobs. The game was designed with touch control input in mind.

The Vita version is the worst version since they chopped out a quarter of the game but I read the reviews for the PS3/XB360 versions and they seemed fine for me. I'm not bothered by touch screens at all. Never liked them and I doubt I ever will. I avoided the WiiU version for that very thing. Like the Wii and the WiiU is pretty much for exclusives and exclusives alone.

You shouldnt buy into drama. The chopped part is actually beeing released as (free) DLC. I'm guessing it didnt fit the card they were using.
Have you played it yet? You guys are acting like im a big defender of touch screen, but i'm not. Its that the game is built with that into place and just holding the circle (or B) button and have the little fly or whatever do everything automatically is just dumb. I didnt find it enjoyable at all. Its like a part of the game got cut-off.

I do think the Vita version might be the best one gameplay wise. Its the one i'd buy because it has the game and the touch screen on the same place. Its pretty intuitive with the way the game is made.
