  1. VideoGamer
    Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice is one of the best PSP games I've played.
  2. Playstation: The Official Magazine (US)
    The original "Pursuit Force" remains one of our top PSP games. The missions have more variety this time around. [Feb 2008, p.75]
  3. AceGamez
    Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice is a high-octane, lighthearted, linear game and it's a must play for every PSP owner. Most importantly, the game is fantastic fun to play, using every section of its large amount of modes to make you enjoy every moment.
  4. A pure, unadulterated action flick boiled down into its simplest parts, Extreme Justice wantonly flaunts its ignorance of depth or basis in reality and as a result walks away a top-notch portable effort, and a damn fine follow-up to the original.
  5. Games Master UK
    Full-pelt gaming that does everything it said it would very well. [Dec 2007, p.84]
  6. Fans of the original Pursuit Force game shouldn't hesitate for a second in purchasing what is essentially a textbook example of a substantial sequel. Newcomers to Pursuit Force should also strongly consider getting hold of this game, which complements the PSP so perfectly.
  7. Maxi Consolas (Portugal)
    Action fans won’t be disappointed by this game. The fun factor throws realism out the window and there’s hardly a dull moment. [Nov 2007]
  8. Play Magazine
    Pursue this game. [Jan 2008, p.61]

    Does Extreme Justice live up to the fast-paced nature of the original game? Yes it does thanks to its rail-shooting sequences and breathtaking leaps between vehicles. Its story is also rather intriguing and fun to play through.
  10. The multiplayer games are great, along with the new Bounty and Challenge stages for those desiring a bigger challenge.
  11. 80
    Overall, though, despite the ridiculous scripture and the lacking on-foot crap, Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice is a rock-solid sequel, one that you won't mind coming back to for breezy runs through the city.
  12. The PSP has definitely turned a corner in the past few months, and this latest Pursuit Force really illustrates what the system is capable of when developers really care about making a quality game with an original property.
  13. 80
    Extreme Justice is no world beater, and you wouldn't call it deep; but it is a solidly crafted action game with a good amount of gameplay. If you enjoyed the first Pursuit Force, this one's even better. And putting away bad guys is always a good time.
  14. This isn't a huge leap forward, it is more of a gracious step forward that offers enough to keep the game at status quo. This game doesn't reinvent the wheel, it just improves the wheel to last longer and perform better.
  15. 78
    As no-nonsense arcade thrills go Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice is something of a flawed diamond. Behind the wheel its huge fun and the jumping from car to car idea works so well you wonder why it's not been done before. The on foot sections however are awkward and frustrating enough to wipe the smile off your face every time they appear.
  16. 77
    Extreme Justice is a definite improvement over the first title and kudos for trying to expand the Pursuit Force universe.
  17. Pursuit Force increases the action and goes more over-the-top in Extreme Justice.
  18. Play UK
    More forgiving than its predecessor, Extreme Justice makes few changes to the "Chase HQ" formula. The graphics are identical and cut-scenes are slightly entertaining, but the ideally replayable missions make this a valid release. [Issue#159, p.74]
  19. Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice still feels like a bit of a shallow showcase title, albeit a less impressive now that over two years have passed.
  20. 75
    Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice is an entertaining action game with plenty to do and see. Though players won't bore of tearing up the highway in a cop car, boss battles may eventually get the better of you.
  21. Extreme Justice is a worthy sequel to the first Pursuit Force but it’s far from a perfect game despite a few new additions and improvements. Still, its fast pace and action-packed missions will keep you more than busy from start to finish.
  22. An action-packed story mode and plenty of extras make Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice a worthy sequel to one of the PSP's more innovative action games.
  23. 75
    The addition of multiplayer adds plenty of gameplay and luckily removes some of the frustrations you’ll encounter in single-player.
  24. If you enjoyed the first title, this one definitely has improvements and will satisfy your craving for more.

    I did not expect this game to be this good. I played the fitst Pursuit Force (about halfway through) and thought it was decent. Pursuit Force:I did not expect this game to be this good. I played the fitst Pursuit Force (about halfway through) and thought it was decent. Pursuit Force: EJ takes it to another level. I really believe this is the game they always meant to make. This game is simply FUN. That is why we play right! Graphics are very sharp and impressive. Gameplay is fast and frantic - it feels like you are in a high speed chase in a Hollywood movie. I was shocked at the depth too (52 levels and you will want to replay them to earn stars to unlock more items for the game). Worth the 30 bucks for sure. Full Review »

I made the mistake of trading it in for Juiced 2: HIN and regretted it ever since. It was action packed and had a really good story, and even if the screenshots don't look so pretty, once in action this game looks absolutely stunning. A must buy for the PSP. Full Review »

    Pursuit force is great franchise. Too bad it is buried now, but anyway it is worth checking. You won't find anything like this.
