I have been playing this game for four days now and I am a bit surprised at the animosity towards Little Deviants. Sure, this game is not Uncharted but it isn't trying to be. Little Deviants is a collection of mini-games designed to make the user accustomed to the various control options on the Vita. In that regard it is similar to Wii Sports or Minesweeper. Sure, the games are simple but that's the point. These games are not much different than the games available for the iPhone or Android.

You get a variety of games that are bound by a loose and unimportant story of helping these manic little aliens. The types of games vary, there is a type of 'whack-a-mole' game that uses the front and rear touch controls. If you score high enough on these games then you unlock more games and gallery items. There is a shooting game that uses the Vita's camera to create the illusion of aliens flying around your living room. There is a sky diving game that uses the Vita's motion controls, a game that requires you to use the microphone and so on.

The downside is that once you have unlocked everything there is little replay value other than trying to beat your high scores. the thing is, would you want to try? The mini-games do get a bit repetitive. This title is not designed for long play sessions. If you are meeting a friend and get a message that they will be a few minutes late, this would be the game to play to kill time with.

I am giving Little Deviants a 3-Star rating because while the games are not bad, you can probably find similar games on your phone for less or even free so $30 is too steep of a price. If you can find this for around $10 or so then it might be worth picking up just for an occasional time-waster.

I got this game bundled with my purchase of my PlayStation Vita First Edition Bundle. I'd lump Little Deviants in the same genre as games like Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, and Doodle Jump; they're entertaining for a while, but you'll get bored with them rather quickly. It's the kind of game you play to kill a little time.

Little Deviants is a collection of 30 mini-games and it does a decent job of showing off what the Vita is capable of. Throughout your game play you'll use almost all of the the Vita's various input methods including the touch screen, the rear touch pad, motion controls, the rear camera, the shoulder buttons, and there was even a mini game that requires you to hum into the mic. However, it does not use the analog stick, the directional buttons or the action buttons.

Some of the mini-games are more fun than others and there is a good variety of them, but some of them are a bit repetitive and you'll see various iterations of them with the only real difference being the scenery and the level of difficulty. There isn't much of a story line to tie together the mini-games either.

The game play is fairly easy, children should be able to achieve at least bronze status in most of the mini-games to unlock the next mini-game level without getting too frustrated. I was able to achieve silver status in most of the levels easily, but it'll probably be harder for a child. Gold status is a bit more of a challenge to achieve in all the levels, and I'd work towards that if I wasn't already bored with the game. Someday when I'm looking to kill a little time I might pop Little Deviants back into my Vita and try to get gold status on all the levels.

If you're someone that likes collecting trophies, Little Deviants offers 55 of them. You should be able to unlock quite a few of them playing through all the mini-games once. I played the game once through and then replayed a handful or so of the mini-games and I was able to unlock 47% of the trophies through my game play. If you like trophy collecting they should add some replay value to the game trying to unlock all the rest of them.

Overall I think the game is pretty decent and can be a fun way to kill some time. But if you're interested in it I suggest waiting for a price drop of at least $10-$15 or picking up a use copy. I don't feel that it's worth the $29.99 price tag that its being sold for right now.

I really enjoy this game. I knew it was a collection of mini games, so I knew what to expect. My 4 year old son has a blast with it. I recommend this game and the recent price drop makes it even more attractive.

I like how the developers made good use of all the unique ways to interact with the game such as the front and rear touch, six axis, etc. It was fun to do the balloon section and turn the Vita vertically. Pick this one up.

Little Deviants came with the bundle I got for Vita. I don't think the bundle was worth it but this game grows on you. My nephews take turns with the mini games and seem to enjoy it. I haven't had much time to play it. Different mini games seem to have different controls. In one you're using the back touch pad, in another the sticks.

Little Deviants is a fun game and I really enjoy some of the mini games. Took about 2 and 1/2 hours to beat all the mini games. Only replayability is if you enjoy collecting trophies. I never plan on platinuming the game since it's almost impossible to get a gold score on the mini games. I have several hours logged into the game and can only achieve silver scores.

I got this game because, as many other people, I am trying to find a good game to keep me busy until Sony releases more titles for the vita. I downloaded the demo and it was fun. Plus you can't beat the price so I thought why not? I ended up putting it up for sale the next day. The demo was a bit misleading because there really wasn't much more to the game than what the demo offered, so heads up.

Little deviants is a cute, fairly simply game, that does a great job incorporating the Vita's new touch features. I mean everything from back touchscreen to the motion sensor. The new touch and motion features are not that difficult to learn no matter how old you are so I wouldn't get this game just to become comfortable with the vita.

This game would do best for younger players who want something simple and fun to play. I would say anyone above 13 years old would most likely get bored with this game quickly. I myself usually like cute and simple games like this, but even this game was WAY too simple for me. There isn't much to it at all. For example there is a level where you roll around using touch to get a key item and then roll into a portal while dodging a few bad guys, and this repeats over and over until you lose your lives.

Bottom line, if you have a young kid and you want an easy to use fun game for them to play then this game is perfect. If you are a teen or older, you will get bored fast so don't bother getting this. If you want to use touch features get little big planet instead of this.

This is a great game for a launch title. It's good enough to hold you off 'till something else comes along. I don't think this a game you'll play for years, it's just to show you off what the Vita can do and at the same time it's pretty fun. Fun maybe because this is your first time experiencing these features but as of now a first impression this is a pretty good game. Pick up if you love to touch and shake things up....yep
