  1. It's a beat-em-up, and so there will inevitably be someone complaining that it's repetitious, but the different micro-games should help stave them off for a while.
  2. The best 3D scrolling beat-em-up ever. And did we mention it’s a near-perfect port with a budget price?
  3. The ability to play through the story mode with a friend is enticing and is only one of many features that makes it worth the price to add to your collection. Where else can you beat up everyone around you, loot, steal car radios, mug, and graffiti complete neighborhoods with a $5 can of spray paint?

    Impressive because The Warriors was such a good and complete game the first time around, with a lengthy story, fun brawling mechanics, and a host of that classic Rockstar optional stuff that we don't have to do but are compelled to anyway -- and it all works incredibly well on the PSP. But at the same time, The Warriors was never really designed to the strengths of a portable system, so unless you haven't played it already, there's no real need to play it again while in transit.
  5. A violent, ballsy, moody, stylish adventure that oozes late-1970s street cool and stays true to the spirit of the film. We can dig it. [Mar 2007, p.106]
  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. With 15-20 hours of gameplay and the increasingly challenging levels, you can guarantee you will spend hours proving yourself as a Warrior.

    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 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, 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 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
