Death Jr. (PSP)

 

You'd think that a game starring the plucky young son of the grim reaper himself would make for a creatively macabre affair. Such a character would warrant a dark, Tim Burton-esque universe, perhaps some off-kilter but subtly funny gameplay mechanics,...

Death Jr's soundtrack is strange enough to fit this bizarre world, but it repeats a lot and sometimes is hard to hear unless you crank the volume. The main title theme fits the wacky tone to a tee, while the others are fairly basic world themes –...

Death Jr. Sony PSP Review

 

As its name suggests, you play as Death Jr., the son of the almighty grim reaper who, while on a trip to a museum with his whacky-looking friends, stumbles upon and opens a strange box, unleashing a powerful and evil creature named Moloch. Now because...

Cool characters and lots of action

The technical issues

Sometimes it really sucks being at the end of a line, but taking the point isn't exactly a vacation in paradise either. For example, if you're a police officer and you take the point in front of your buddies you might be the first to get shot....

When it comes to launching a system, lead titles face immense pressure to be extraordinary, particularly in capturing the magic of the hardware and what it can do. Some games, like Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog accomplish this well and...

I really do hope that Death Jr. gets redeemed with a sequel or an expanded console version that fixes the issues that this title created. The premise is one that should be further explored, and this could be a quirky little series that could find its...

Death Jr. review for the PSP

 

Short-lived.

Tim Burton stylings; Some good action

Interrupted by a lame camera; Counter-productive melee combat; Repetitive ranged combat; Awkward platforming elements

It might sound like a new product for a new handheld, but you've actually been playing this game in your head ever since Mario went 3D back in the days when you thought giving him guns was genius. This is a tired, dull platformer that only manages to...

A fun and quirky little romp that will satisfy PSP fans who've been waiting for a good platformer.

The fun does end rather quickly though as Death Jr. is not a very long adventure. So what makes DJ so appealing if the adventure is a short one? You do have a wide arsenal of weapons to thwart off baddies, such as dual pistols, a lightning gun, a...

Sony's PlayStation Portable has been having one interesting ride since it was released back in March of 2005 (here in the States). The PSP really

I am very sorry to say that although Death Jr. does have some fine qualities they don’t add up to a great game. This is a game that I would still recommend as a rental game but anything past that and you would probably not be getting enough bang for...

Death, Jr. Review

 

Though charming and wonderfully creative, Death Jr. falls a bit short in the gameplay department.

Death Jr. is going to sell a ton of copies because despite its faults it's still a fun little action game and PSP owners are probably hungering for a more diverse selection of titles, but it's far from being an excellent product. Like our friend at...
