Operation Abyss leads a busy week for Vita reviews in Famitsu

While Yoshi's New Island top scores for the 3DS in this week's Famitsu, Operation Abyss (screens) might not have smashed scoring records, but looks to have done well enough to be another big seller, on the back of the success of Demon Gaze.

Well done to Milestone who's WRC 4 gets the best Vita score of the week, I'm not sure how many rally fans there are in Japan but with no new Sega Rally (since the PSP version?) recently, I guess it stands out as something different.

5bp's Corpse Party: Blood Drive ramps up the scares, but perhaps at the expense of gameplay. Note, the PSP titles are currently 2-for-1 on the US PSN, Corpse Party/Corpse Party: Book of Shadows (PS Vita & PSP) for $19.99. All the games are out on the 24th in Japan.

I'm not sure what Ten no Koku (video below) did to polarize the reviewers, but I doubt we'll be seeing it anyway, its a visual novel where kids meet in their dreams which become perilous places indeed. Read more about that on this handy Visual Novel blog.

Yoshi’s New Island (3DS) – 8/9/8/8
WRC 4: FIA World Rally Championship (PS3/PSV) – 7/8/8/8
Tokyo New World Record: Operation Abyss (PSV) – 7/8/8/7
Corpse Party: Blood Drive (PSV) – 7/8/7/7
Soushuu Senshinkan Gakuen: Hachimyoujin – Ten no Koku (PSV) – 6/8/4/8
