While Sony may not give the PlayStation Vita much love these days, others have set out to do so over the years to prove the handheld’s worth. Digital Dreams was one such developer who exclusively released its debut title Metrico on the neglected platform in 2014. It received both glowing and scathing remarks for varying reasons, but if one consensus could be reached, it was that the game had unique ideas to offer with its level design and unconventional use of mechanics. Not content to take this criticism lying down, the feisty studio has multiplied its efforts, done its homework, and strived for higher grades this time around. By adding to and altering the original game, is Metrico+ a refined package that lives up to its apt appellation?
