As for Declassified all the user reviews are rating it highly so far, not a lot to go on could easily be people who worked on it. The worrying factor for me is the fact it seems that no one was given a review copy which definitely points towards the game being poor.

Two possible conclusions

One the game is actually quite good but very short one guy says he's completed it already

Two: The game is terrible and all the tricks are being pulled to sell copies early before any reviews can be made

I'm happy to wait and hope it's number one but I won't rule out number two yet.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

According to the UK site they weren't given a copy of it, which is one of the reasons I'm suspicious about it still.

Most people on gamefaqs, psvitaforum, and YouTube all seem to enjoy it. That's where I've seen the most impressions.

They are receiving a copy from Activision. They just didn't get it early. They did say if their copy didn't show up today that they'd just buy own on their own.

Even if it's a decent game, the $50 price for such little content makes the purchase hard to justify.

Edit: Oh right, subscribe to PS+ now. Look at all this new Vita content you're getting for $50 a year:

Back at TGS, Sony confirmed that PlayStation Plus would be coming to the PlayStation Vita. Now, we know it’s coming next week and bringing an extremely strong launch lineup.


Monday, November 19th, Vita Firmware 2.00 will go live and show PlayStation Plus functionality – along with allowing Vitas to check Gmail and Yahoo email, wirelessly communicate with PCs, tweak PSone game settings, and use the web browser more effectively. Then, when the PlayStation Store updates on Tuesday, November 20th, the first round of free-to-PlayStation Plus subscriber Vita games will be available.

PlayStation Vita’s PlayStation Plus 11/20 Lineup
Uncharted: Golden Abyss
WipEout 2048
Gravity Rush
Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack
Jet Set Radio
And the PSP title Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions


No too shabby, eh? Especially considering Jet Set Radio is a Vita debut – only the PS3 version is available for download now. Tuesday will also see you get 1GB of Vita cloud storage in addition to the 1GB of PS3 cloud storage PlayStation Plus subscribers get. Sony says that from now on, 12 PS3 games and 6 Vita games will be available for PlayStation Plus subscribers to download at any time. Just like before, if you download the game, it’s saved to your download list and ready to be used even if it’s free period expires in the future.

All of these details are specific to North America, but a similar package is coming to the UK and AU in a similar time frame.

PlayStation Plus cost $49.99 for a year or $17.99 for three months. Do you think the service is worth it? Let us know in the comments below.

Yeah, that's my main reservation right now. Also, dang. I own all but two of the instant collection games- just don't have Jet Set Radio or FF Tactics. Was hoping Unit 13 would be there- still have yet to pick it up. Kind of surprised- they're offering some of the systems best games.
