What bugs me about your comment, is you give no explanation at all- you just say it's a terrible game.
Shadow Guardian is crap. But it was actually challenging in normal difficulty. Uncharted Vita had simply zero challenge, with a ridiculously overpowered (and repetitive) melee, idiotic AI (which responded to you taking cover by getting closer to you so you could use your ridiculously overpowered melee move on then). It gave you puzzles that literally solved themselves, platforming that was impossible to fail, a story that was both a blatant Raiders of the Lost Ark rippoff and made no sense whatsoever. To top it off, the game ended with probably the worst boss encounters I've ever played -- basically a sequence of mindless quick time events. The game was an insult to hardcore gaming.
I know that the PS3 games had similar mechanics, but they has the advantage of 1) much better stories; 2) incredible set pieces that made the environment part of the action; 3) way better level design; 4) much better enemy AI. Uncharted Vita played likethe developer had taken all the unmemorable and silly parts of all three Uncharteds and assembled them into a single game. To compare the PS3 games with the Vita version is like comparing the first Robocop with the direct-to-video sequels.
Man, you guys have put me on a bad mood. I'm now despairing for the future of console gaming, not just the future of the Vita.
