Flashback: Handheld Games of 2010
Top Games for the PlayStation Portable
Unlike the first Metal Gear game for the PSP, Portable Ops, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is a full fledged MGS title, complete with the covert game play the series is known for.
Kingdom Hearts was an instant hit when it first debuted on the PS2, Birth by Sleep easily lives up to the impressive reputation, full of familiar Disney and Square Enix characters and some new story lines.
God of War: Ghost of Sparta takes all the action from the latest God of War titles and crams them onto the portable screen, without that watered down feel that so many handheld versions suffer from.
Top Games for the Nintendo DS
Originally known as Dragon Warrior over in Japan, the Dragon Quest series has lived on as a truly epic RPG title. The storyline really does go on for ages, yet still manages to keep you completely enthralled, something only Dragon Quest can accomplish.
At long last, a real time strategy game for a handheld that’s actually good! Clash of the Heroes makes use of the DS’s unique touch interface to create an exciting mix of combat, puzzles, and strategy all while staying true to the Might and Magic series.
What good would the DS be if you couldn’t play Zelda? Spirit Tracks is a sequel to the Phantom Hourglass and improved on many of its predecessor’s shortcomings, while keeping the game play and storyline true to the Zelda franchise.
