With the holiday season upon us, there’s sure to be a lot of PlayStation Vitas exchanging hands.
We’re big fans of Sony’s latest here at OXCGN, and it’s only right that we assist in avoiding the crushing disappointment that comes with receiving a shiny new console, but a horrible game to play on it.
Don’t have time to hunt down reviews for all the major Vita games? No worries, we’ve got you covered!
The list below is a handy summary of each game with pros, cons, and overall ratings of most major Vita game releases (in alphabetical order) since launch, with all being owned and played by yours truly over the course of the past eight months since launch.
Note that the rating assigned to each game may not match that which was given in an earlier review of the game by a different reviewer.

OXCGN’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Review (Single Player)
Is the story sacrificed on the multiplayer altar?

Love it or hate it, the fact is that there’s never been a more successful franchise in the history of gaming. Some people might disagree, but Call of Duty has gone from strength to strength – especially when you look at the number of copies sold and the size of the multiplayer community.
Like it or not, Call of Duty is probably going to be around for a while yet.
Fortunately for me, I love it, and have done since the first release of Call of Duty so I expect a lot more from each new release to keep me hooked.
Black Ops 2 may be the sequel to 2010’s Black Ops, but release-wise, it is following Modern Warfare 3.
Since this is a single player review only, I will say that following Modern Warfare 3 will not be easy because it was fantastic.

Today Microsoft announced that one of the year’s most hotly anticipated games, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, will be bundled with an Xbox 360 console.
Available from November 13th 2012, the Call of Duty Black Ops II bundle includes a 250GB console, controller, headset and the game for AU $499.00.
Call of Duty games have always attracted a big following and now those who have waited until late in the console cycle to jump in can join their mates who already play previous titles on the 360.
