    It's a near-perfect port of a killer game. In fact, I'd go on a limb and say that The Warriors is that console generation's best pure brawler.
  2. The best 3D scrolling beat-em-up ever. And did we mention it’s a near-perfect port with a budget price?
  3. If you missed this game on the consoles, or just want to experience it on the go, it’s a no brainer.

    The Warriors on the PSP remains a great game, and is actually quite suitable as a handheld beat 'em up.
  5. Returning to the title (regardless of the platform) does prove to be just as much fun now as it did in Autumn 2005.
  6. The Warriors on the PSP is basically the same game it was on the consoles; a rock solid brawler that captures the heart and soul of one of the coolest flicks of all time.
  7. Violence is what makes the game so enjoyable in the first place. It's a little disappointing just how much the game looks and feels like every other Rockstar has released recently, but the shining story and brutality of it all make it all a worthwhile endeavour.

    A great port of a great game based on one of the greatest films of all time. If you have a PSP or a PS2, you NEED THIS GAME. If the amazingA great port of a great game based on one of the greatest films of all time. If you have a PSP or a PS2, you NEED THIS GAME. If the amazing story, thousands of unlockables, destructible and interactive environment isn't enough of a reason to buy this game, then I don't know what is.
    Bashing people over the head with beer bottles and breaking baseball bats over cops heads provides some of the most refreshing gameplay I've ever experienced.
    You'll grow to love the sound of steel toed boots breaking peoples noses in no time.

    I'm giving it a ten because i think its not perfect, but its the best psp title ive played. Great action, good story, cool minigames, andI'm giving it a ten because i think its not perfect, but its the best psp title ive played. Great action, good story, cool minigames, and a good soundtrack. It also has impressive graphics, and a semi physics engine, i think. It never gets to frustrating, but its challenging. The multiplayer is welcome, but it is not really needed, this games real fun is in the single player, but if you want after you beat the game, go play some bot or online brawl matches, it sure is a great experiance.

    This game is a must and is way better than what I was expecting. At $20 it's a steal and definitely a worthy purchase. I mean damn.

    I have never seen the Film or played this before when it was released 2 years ago, but this is definitely worth a look on the psp. It's I have never seen the Film or played this before when it was released 2 years ago, but this is definitely worth a look on the psp. It's free roaming and the fighting side works really well. You can it typical rock star fashion Mug people and Smash up shops and steal from them and also smash car windows and nick the stero out of it by rotating the analog nub to unscrew it. Theres plenty of things to do, like flash backs which tell you how various members of the gang ended up joining, training (Sit ups, push ups and the Punch Bag) Rumble mode and Armys of the night plus the actual missions them selfs. Its fun to play easy to get along with, and the missions include going around taggin with your spray paint, muggin, also have to run for it, which includes jumping over fences and leaping across roof tops to escape from rival gangs. If you have never play this like me then it is well worth a look, even if you have played this before its well worth getting it on the portable psp so you can mug and mame people on the move. Violence in computer games I love it.. Its a game not real life...and a good game at that... Expand
