  1. It wields simplicity and charm as convincing hooks to keep players interested in a genre that hit its stride nearly two decades ago, and its as fun now as it was then. Platformers may be a dime a dozen these days, but there isn’t one game on the PSP that matches Hammerin’ Hero in pure style and refreshing playability.
  2. Go buy Hammerin' Hero, especially if you've been whining about the lack of good PSP games. This is one of them. You need it.

    With updated graphics that look fantastic on the PSP's screen and more depth than almost any of those old 8- and 16-bit classics, though, Hammerin' Hero manages to not feel old, just... retro.

    It's more like "Hammerin' Zero" Your character wields like a tank. He's fat. sluggish. slow to respond to input and worst of all he no fun to drive. Full Review »
