  1. From Russia With Love is a perfect example of how not to port a game from the PS2 to PSP. It does absolutely nothing new and a host of things much worse.

    The extremely limited multiplayer system, the frustrating and ill-conceived "follow the blue dots" gameplay, and the hackneyed control scheme make playing through From Russia With Love like going toe-to-toe with a giant blond boxer as your country's fate is on the line -- stressful, with a likelihood of receiving brain damage.
  3. The game is missing several things, including a crucial control scheme during a majority of the shootouts, the car and speedboat chases that threw in diversity in previous versions, and a multiplayer mode that generates interest.
  4. Probably the clearest way I can describe this game is by saying that I had a really tough time finding the motivation to play through it even though its core story is incredibly short (there are sub-missions and stuff, and the multiplayer, but the single player main story is only about 5 hours).

    This isn't a bad shooter for the PSP. The graphics are what you should expect for a PS2 to PSP port, the controls are well done (only This isn't a bad shooter for the PSP. The graphics are what you should expect for a PS2 to PSP port, the controls are well done (only complaint is the camera rotation is a little bit slow at times), and the gameplay is solid. It's not SOCOM (the best PSP shooter available), but it's a very good game to play if you didn't play the console version. Full Review »

    This is a really fun game and I'm not saying this because I work EA - it's just as good if not better than every PSP game out there This is a really fun game and I'm not saying this because I work EA - it's just as good if not better than every PSP game out there right now. Full Review »
