    A perfect fit for the PSP -- creative, stylish, and easily broken into the bite-sized chunks that work so well when gaming on the go. It's also a stellar game by its own merits.
  2. Even if you're not a big fan of puzzle games you'll enjoy the structure of the puzzles that are anything but obtuse or arbitrary.
  3. 80
    The controls are simple, the graphics are sharp, and there is plenty here to keep you coming back for months. It just has those pesky AI problems and too many trial and error levels, but for all of those in search of an original PSP game, look no further Exit has arrived.
  4. It’s hard to find reasons not to point to Exit as a prime piece of PSP gaming. It’s rich colours and bold stylings bring out the best in the machine’s screen; the short, compelling levels are perfect for playing in bite-sized chunks, and wi-fi connectivity means new levels – of which Taito has already made a good few available - will sustain your enthusiasm longterm.

  5. 75
    With its own distinct approach to puzzle gameplay, and a unique visual style, Exit really stands apart from the crowd.
  6. 73
    While the gameplay will likely be hit or miss depending on your genre preferences, it’s difficult to deny that Exit's interesting graphical style and presentation that make it one of the more memorable games to be released for the PSP.
  7. A good mental workout that can prove to be addictive, despite its punishing quirks.

Just picked up a copy of Exit and I must say,it is one of the best games out for the PSP. Great graphics,fun puzzles and fantastic art style. Don't listen to IGN's bad review, this is a great game with over 100 levels and more downloadable ones on the way. Very high replay value as I kept wanting to go back and get a higher score on each level. If you want an innovative puzzler, pick this one up right away! Expand

    This game is great for the bus ride to work/school. Each level is short enough to do in a few minutes ... once you figure it out. One thing This game is great for the bus ride to work/school. Each level is short enough to do in a few minutes ... once you figure it out. One thing missing is multiple save files so my wife can have her own game history. Expand
