The Lord of the Rings: Tactics

The Lord of the Rings doesn’t really need an introduction so I won’t give any. Let’s take Anduril by the hand and start with the review of Lord of the Rings: Tactics, a turn-based strategy game for the PSP. The first downpoint of the game is that the makers didn’t really try to put the […]

Burnout Legends

If there’s one genre for which plenty of games are available on the PSP, then it’s racers. Think of titles like Wipeout Pure, still one of my favorites, and let’s say Ridge Racer. It was with some doubt that I put the PSP version of Burnout Legends into my PSP. With the DS-version in mind, […]

Go! Sudoku

Evaluating Go! Sudoku isn’t really a matter of long breath. The game for the PSP is nothing more than a variant we (or at least some of us) know from the pen&paper game. The idea is to fill nine squares with numbers ranging from 1 to 9. The difficulty being that you can only use […]

Pursuit Force

Now here’s a game that hasn’t been hyped to death by its creator. Since its announcement, we’ve seen some screens pop up, maybe a trailer here and there, but nothing out of the ordinary. Nevertheless, Pursuit Force still managed to spark the interest of quite a few gamers with the promise of old-school, action-filled gameplay […]

Spider-Man 2

With this release for PSP, Activision has a version of Spider-Man 2 for pretty much every platform. PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, DS, GBA… even the cumbersome N-Gage has a port. There’s only so much milk a cow can make, one might say… Milking issues aside, what we have here is an action title, designed specifically […]

MediEvil Resurrection

Goofy-looking main character? Check. Smartass sidekick? Check. Evil dude, trying to conquer the world? Check. Waves of lobotomized enemies? Check. Tongue-in-cheek humour? Check. It seems as if Sony’s Studio Cambridge just went over the standard “How to make a good platformer”-checklist and came up with MediEvil Resurrection. Coming straight from Sony’s assembly lines, can this […]

Everybody's Golf

Golf games aren’t for everyone. You can’t really call them flashy and if one leaves the ground of the pure simulation, you often end up with an arcade game that one gets bored with after a couple of minutes. A look at the box of Everybody’s Golf immediately shows that we’ve got to do with […]

Ape Escape Academy

Mini-games are totally in at the moment, not the least thanks to the Nintendo DS and games like WarioWare. Monkeys have always been cool, think of Monkey Island, King Kong or even Donkey Kong. The people at Sony didn’t have to brainstorm for long to find the following brilliant idea: take a bunch of monkeys, […]

WipeOut Pure

With Wipeout XL, the Playstation had an incredible topgame. Not only did the player get superfast races, he also got a fantastic setting and finishing that completely fitted with the time. After that, the series never managed to convince anymore and the wait was for the PSP version. Now that it’s here, and carries the […]

Ridge Racer

It took Namco quite a while, but they’ve finally released a new Ridge Racer game. The previous one, Ridge Racer V, was in fact a PlayStation 2 launch title, and we all know how long that has been. With this PSP release, Namco wants to give their franchise a fresh new start. Have they succeeded […]

World Tour Soccer

Ah, soccer, the world’s most popular and interesting sport (fuck golf!). Nothing beats watching an exciting football match with two teams that go all-out, walking (running?) the thin line between football and kickboxing -who cares about injuries anyway?-. Hmm, come to think of it, maybe something does beat it: playing that same match on a […]

Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower

Everyone of course knows the Street Fighter games that come from Capcom’s stable. A lot less known however is the Darkstalkers series from the same makers. Not so extraordinary seeing that these games were released for arcade halls and the Dreamcast. Just like their more famous brother these were pure 2D fighting games and especially […]

Virtua Tennis World Tour

The 2005 tennis season is coming to an end. With only the Masters left to go, most of the tennis stars are getting ready for a well-deserved vacation. It seems like a weird moment to launch a tennis game, but Sega is doing it nonetheless. But then again, if they deliver us grand game, who […]

Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix

Tony Hawk… who doesn’t know him? He’s about the greatest skating legend of all time, but amongst gamers he’s most well known due to the games that carry his name. According one, the guys from Activision have sucked the nipples of the Tonycow so dry that the uterus could use a tittielift. The other, however, […]

Lumines

Let me start by saying I am (or at least used to be) a Tetris addict. I wrecked a brand-new Game Boy (the hulky gray one), solely because of the button bashing involved with the game. I can still vividly remember the nights I played Tetris for hours on end, just trying to beat that […]
