    5 great Gradius games looking very crispy on the PSP screen. Plenty of settings to help make the game a little easier should it be too complicated. I've always been a Gradius fan (never knew it was pronounced graDIus though), and this collection is marvelous for the fans. It comes with a very decent pricetag too.

    I enjoy this game because it's pick-up-and-play, and you get to shoot stuff! No complicated RTSs or RPGs, adventures or survival horrors. Just shooting. I like!

  1. With five mostly top-notch shooters all in one set ready to be played on the go (with a great save feature to boot), Gradius Portable is an excellent game for those looking for their shooting action in both short bursts and long hauls. For fans of the genre, the game is worth every penny. [JPN Import]

    The bottom line is that none of these games are new, but this is still a wonderful package that offers excellent value for money, and for Gradius fans it's a must-have.
  3. Gradius Collection should be rated M--not because it's violent.....or because it has nudity. Really, the reason it should have that rating stems from the amount of profanity that will spew from your mouth and the possible injuries incurred from slamming your PSP into a brick wall.
