Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable

You surely don't need me to convince you that Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 is an extraordinary title. Many experts brushed up the game many times now -- once as a complete title time and time again, each time the news is straightforward: get this game and play it. At the moment, the Shin Megami Tensei follows returned as Persona 3 Portable, a crossbred that bundles the chronicle of Persona 3 and a fresh female fictional character.

It is a jumble that shows what works while working with the limits of the Sony PSP, but it remains an excellent title if you're waiting for a Japanese role-playing game or wonderful plot. Of course, Persona 3 is an excellent narrative riddled with unique characters, wonderful combats and loads of things to do. It has all of that, also a few battle enhancements that can improve replay value. Unfortunately, Persona 3 PSP misses some of its finish, as the title forgoes exciting anime cutscenes and also free roaming gameplay. Even so, the core of the original game is still intact and impressive.

Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip - PSP Game Review

Hot Shots does many things to keep you absorbed. Supplemental multiplayer is played by up to 4 players, you may join in doubles tournaments in the story mode, and this title even employs the long abandoned "Game Sharing" feature on the Sony PSP so players may test it with a buddy. If you beat up a boss, they are included to the playable roster and you are allowed to then change them with the things you have. Go along playing as the character, and you should fill the loyalty meter to get perks like costumes slots and stat boosts. Aside from a couple of technical problems – there is one match where you can be bogged down bumping into teammates before getting the boot while the camera angle quirk erratically. Of course, the infrastructure mode as rugged as in the Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 should be included in this title, but you may never used the title's online feature. Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip definitely a dazzling title; there is no doubt about that. The game packs the exciting gameplay also time-tested features such as collectables, personal ranks, unlockable characters, and whole lot more. It may not be an addictive hook just like earlier Hot Shots games, however it is still an impressive game in its own right, that's for sure.

Armored Core: Last Raven Portable - PSP Game Review

A good deal of achievement in this title comes from heuristical methods, and not only from typical armored core gameplays. There are some reconnaissance, defense, and escort missions also, and some of them can stump you initially until you understand that you need to return to the garage and optimize some components. For example, an early mission requires you to wipe out threats near a couple of bridges so that your units can get ahead.

Regardless of its displeasing gameplay, Last Raven Portable holds back that mystical charm common amongst all Armored Core devotees whereby you may spend tons of hours on tweaking mech configuration. It is a pity that no compromise were made to make the game more convenient because the previous Armored Core: Formula Front has auto-battle option (which, when turned on, put an focus straightforwardly on the configuration aspect). If you are an Armored Core lover who has been playing its portable items with gusto, you should feel more comfortable and may likely be urged to kill all enemy mech in the game's virtual stadium and finish all missions to see all endings. However, if you only love huge robots and like to see things blow up on a PSP, you shouldn't start with this game.
