  1. Aside from a few minor complaints, the game is all in tact-extras and all.
  2. Riff: Everyday shooter lives up to his name on the PSP. Too bad that there aren't any differences whatsoever between this version and the PSN version. Even if the game would cost a little bit more, than it would still be worth your money. Gamers that are looking for an interesting 2D-shooter should consider buying Riff. Don't forget that you'll need a PlayStation 3 to copy the game to your PSP.

    If you missed the original version on the PS3 and you want a musically-inspired shooter to play on the road, Everyday Shooter is just fine. The port runs well and the controls -- while a bit awkward due to the loss of the two analog sticks -- function well enough because of Everyday Shooter's angular mechanics.
  4. Stiff controls and limited options keep this beautiful shooter from firing off perfectly.
  5. Considering that nothing new was added to the title and that the game's problems are somewhat exacerbated by the PSP's limitations, this is definitely the weakest version of the title yet. Still, Everyday Shooter is an enjoyable experience worth the $9.99 download price for more than just top-down shooter fans.
  6. Riff: Everyday Shooter is a complex title, it can both please and engage the player or disappoint and frustrate him. So this is a title not suitable for everyone, but for players who like new and fresh experiences, although ultimately this game is just a shoot'em up with a renewed look and a soundtrack that is worthy listening at least twice.
  7. Taking Everyday Shooter on the road is a nice attribute for fans of the game, but it’s not nearly as fun as it was when it debuted in 2007. Without two analog sticks, it’s not nearly as functional.

    The main problem of a handheld version is lack of a second analog stick. It makes navigating and targeting a lot harder than on the PS3 version – if you can overcome this difficulty you will enjoy the unconventional and colorful shooter. [Issue#174, Jan 2009]
  9. It isn't exactly a bad game per se, but it just doesn't belong on a game system that only has one analog stick. If you absolutely have to play it, stick with the Playstation 3 version.
