After the intense opening chapter that was The Walking Dead: Episode 1, there is a lot to live up to for the second episode. Episode 2: Starved for Help takes the formula established by the first and continues to evolve both the story and gameplay.

Playing video games nowadays, one thing that’s really easy to take for granted is how you travel around the game world. Be it gliding, running, climbing, driving, spinning, falling, grappling, swimming or simply walking around, it’s a pretty major part of the equation. Every once in a while, a game comes around that takes this concept and comes up with something so innovative and fun that you can entertain yourself just traveling around doing nothing. Couple this with impressive art design, a charming story, fun combat and time-based challenges and you’ve got Gravity Rush, currently the best offering on the PS Vita.
