Ape Escape Academy

If there's one fundamental truth in this world, let it be this: monkeys are awesome. And how can they not be?

Armored Core Formula Front - Extreme Battle

The latest, and perhaps most adventurously original version of Armored Core to date, Formula Front is one of the PSP's hottest new titles.

Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower

With a name like Darkstalkers, it has to be good! A great update to an old series, you'll get to fight as a series of movie monsters become warriors in this fiercely competitive title.

Field Commander

Hey, I finally got to play a really good PSP title! Or is that just the delirium talking?

Frogger: Helmet Chaos

Remember Frogger? You know, that one retro arcade game that had you taking the reigns of a suicidal frog trying to cross a busy intersection?

From Russia with Love

First person shooters can have a tough transition to the PSP because of one major issue. There's only one analog stick.

Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex

In the gameplay department, SAC isn't so much bad as much as it is spotty.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

Taking a game that has an extreme dependency on console/PC gameplay techniques and jamming them into a handheld is not going to be an easy or clean process.

Hot Shots Golf Open Tee

Quite simply, I have been more then impressed with what the Sony PSP is capable of.

Infected

Gameplay relies on handling traditional FPS controls with the stripped down controls provided by the PSP.

Lumines

It's a strange and addictive puzzle game that involves creating blocks, much in the same way that Tetris required you to create lines.

MediEvil Resurrection

As the long dead hero Sir Daniel Fortesque you are reanimated in a slightly bizarre turn of events.

Metal Gear Acid

As a game player, I'm always on the look out for a game that moves into a new area of gameplay, or grows past the limits of its own genre.

Metal Gear Acid 2

Yet when the game was released, I was befuddled, utterly shocked at how well Konami able to pull it off.

Micro Machines V4

If you like you're racing title a little fast and loose, boy do I have something to tell you.

NFL Street 3

One of the most difficult things to tolerate in any new game is an old game.

Online Chess Kingdoms

First off, to even consider this game, you have to at least enjoy chess on some level.

Payout Poker and Casino

Running around a casino has never been fun for me, even in real life, but when a game has you running around one just for the sake of running, that is a big turnoff. Unfortunately, that's the case here.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Following the narrative of the film loosely, the story chases after Jack Sparrow, letting you play this dastardly rogue on his trip to freedom and plunder.

PoPoLoCrois

It can almost be considered a retro RPG game these days where you have a top down view and walk around in the cities buying items, talking to citizens, and furthering the story and getting attacked constantly by enemies once outside the cities.

PQ2: Practical Intelligence Quotient

I've always loved brain teasers, and I've often wondered exactly how smart I was. I suppose that's why PQ appealed to me, offering a nice break from traditional gameplay, going back to making a puzzle title that really did present just that.

Pursuit Force

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you think you have seen it before, vehicular combat, yadda, yadda, yadda. But wait!

Race Driver 2006

PSP owners with an affinity to racing games have plenty of options when looking to scratch their proverbial racing itch. However one racing sub genre that's relatively untapped is the true racing simulation.

Rengoku 2: Stairway to H.E.A.V.E.N.

You never really know what to expect from the sequel to a bad game. Sometimes developers listen to their audience and work on fixing everything that was wrong with the first title.

SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs: Fireteam Bravo 2

The original Fireteam Bravo delivered an excellent tactical shooter for the PSP, something that has proven difficult to achieve on a portable.

Street Supremacy

There's a time attack mode thrown in as an afterthought, and a team battle mode where you'll spend most of your time.

Tekken: Dark Resurrection

Handheld ports of fighting games have always been problematic; usually resulting in a horribly broken imitation of a previously good game.

The Godfather: Mob Wars

Be prepared as the Corleone family didn't come into power by playing nice but does the Corleone family prevail this time around or find themselves left for dead in the gutter?

The Warriors

It's not often that you see a 3D beat-em-up that isn't, for a lack of better terms, boring. It's an abused genre, filled with all kind of movie licensed shovel-ware.

Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix

Since so much of THUG 2 is dependant on a solid control system, there was some risk that this whole effort could completely backfire. The good news is that didn't happen.

Untold Legends 2: The Warrior's Code

Hacking and slashing it's often believed, is an archaic activity. This is not so, I say.

Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade

Now that the PSP is on retail shelves and the game is in my hands, I have to say I am satisfied with the purchase.

Wipeout Pure

Ah, gameplay, what a beautiful word. And in this game, it's simple, but fun. You've got a high speed anti-grav racing game that lets you pilot an advanced craft around a futuristic racing track, all the while with electronic and trance music playin..

Ys: The Ark of Napishtim

The RPG genre has been pushing the envelop lately with high quality graphics, immersive plots, and new gameplay features.

Final Fantasy

The first of the Final Fantasy games. JRPG classics.
NES

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

The epic Zelda saga continues with The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.

The Legend of Dragoon

Released back in December in Japan, SCEPs four-disc RPG The Legend of Dragoon heads to the U.S. via SCEA in June.
