Half-Minute Hero (PSP)

While traditional role-playing games have their perks, they're often loaded with hours of tedious grinding and dozens of melodramatic cutscenes that take as long to watch as they do to unlock. Half-Minute Hero eschews all that in favor of fast-paced...

Patapon (PSP)

Like Puzzle Quest before it, Patapon is a game that grabs key features from existing genres, squishes them together like different-colored balls of Play-Doh, and then turns them into something far more special than you might expect. For example, if you...

PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe (PSP)

PixelJunk Monsters was a big success on the PlayStation 3, bringing a unique twist to the tower defense genre, along with the inimitable PixelJunk style. However, as much fun as it still is to sit down and play on the couch, Monsters is a game that...

Ys Seven- PSP

Like most JRPGs, there is no DLC or replay value after finishing the game. With various side quests, dungeon exploring, level grinding and over 30+ hours of gameplay, there is plenty if content to keep players happy.

Resistance: Retribution (PSP)

Resistance: Retribution is the first portable outing for Sony's grim alternate-history franchise. The Resistance series, like many other shooters, has thrived on the dual analog-stick controller of the PlayStation 3, and at first glance the leap to the...

Valkyria Chronicles II (PSP)

Valkyria Chronicles II squeezes the smart, turn-based strategy and deep, RPG-like customisation of its PlayStation 3 predecessor onto the PSP with great success. But for a few tweaks, the core experience is unaltered, and the familiar, hand-drawn art...

Gran Turismo (PSP)

Gran Turismo for PSP is exactly what GT fans would expect from Polyphony and Sony: You can race on the Nurburgring on your train commute, and it's just as fun as it is on the PS2 or PS3.

Gods Eater Burst (PSP)

Gods Eater Burst is a pretty all right game. It’s a little something different for fans of the Monster Hunter series and its ilk, but be prepared to accept that it will plateau fairly early on. Given that the supply of PSP games is drying up, you’ll...

Unchained Blades (PSP)

It's funny how an opinion can shift while playing through a game. I first thought that Unchained Blades would be a diamond in the rough. While J-RPGs as a whole haven't been up to scratch lately, there was the promise of first-person dungeon crawling....

Corpse Party- PSP

If you’re going to spend the $20 on Corpse Party, it is very important to know what you’re getting into. This is not a “game,” but an interactive novel with video game elements that, for the most part, aren’t very good. You will get frustrated and lost...

LocoRoco 2- PSP

AU REVIEW--The first LocoRoco was like an injection of sugar syrup directly to the brain, and its cute design and catchy soundtrack made it a tough game to dislike even if you found faults with its unique but ultimately repetitive gameplay. LocoRoco 2...

Valkyria Chronicles 2 (PSP)

While there are plenty of good things to say about this game, there is a few small hang ups. One of the biggest problems is not being able to save in the middle of battle. While some may say that’s it of little consequence because of the sleep mode,...
