  1. The real 'Must-Have' game of the year for anyone who owns a PSP. It’s single-player game will steal your heart but it’s the perfect multiplayer mode that will steal your soul.
  2. With only a few exceptions, it exceeds every expectation. Bravo, indeed. [Jan 2006, p.102]
  3. Far from a watered-down PS2 port, Fireteam Bravo provides a full-on FPS gaming experience on the PSP, with some multiplayer and connectivity features thrown in for good measure.
  4. Just what the PSP needs more of: the perfect match of a game and its system. [Feb 2006, p.90]

    Zipper Interactive has done a great job by bringing the enjoyable gameplay of the console versions to the PSP with minimal change to the classic formula.
  6. Zipper Interactive managed to create very smooth, simple controls for a unit without a second analog nub (a minor miracle), and brought along all the SOCOM visual treats and gameplay nuances that fans of the genre crave, and the PSP enabled them to do this all in style.
  7. Like Cereal, Fireteam Bravo can be had at any course of the day no matter the event. Though the graphical glitches may leave the player dissatisfied with the quality, there is nothing wrong and you have to understand that it was made that way for a longer gameplay experience to benefit from.
  8. Despite a couple minor complaints and a steep learning curve, Fireteam Bravo is easily the best game of its type on the PSP.
  9. The best shooter on the PSP to date, if not one of the best titles on the system itself. A solid single player campaign and a robust multiplayer experience round out Fireteam Bravo.
  10. If publishers and developers insist on making PSP games with big-console values, they could definitely learn a thing or two from Fireteam Bravo.
  11. The game offers hard-hitting offline and online gameplay, impressive map sizes, and a pleasantly intuitive shooter interface, all while maintaining the feel and intensity of combat that is so familiar to fans of SOCOM.
  12. If you want to have a shooter on the go, SOCOM is one of the few games to make a compelling portable shooter experience.

    Spend some time getting used to how the game works - use tactics rather than brute force... and this game becomes very compelling and greatSpend some time getting used to how the game works - use tactics rather than brute force... and this game becomes very compelling and great fun... even if you jump straight into a mission without reviewing what you actually have to do or customizing your weapons etc. the game still provides an excellent experience. Because you learn what your objectives are as you play though the mission, which includes things such as; capture enemy leaders, rescue hostages, search and destroy enemy equipment or vehicles, find and disarm bombs and more... you also get a teammate that follows you around and is primarily controlled by AI, but you can also give him orders to help you both succeed. --- Overall this is one of the best games I've played on PSP.

    The frame rate is kind of avarage. But still playable and pretty interesting.
