    Xavier R rated this a ten because he saw it online. He obviously has not played the game. Although somehow addictive the game will destroy any schedule you had with 20mins to have a 5 min match due to loading times to move to any new screen. Huge parts of the PS2 version were removed to make room for a bad card game and further Eugine-bashing games that are not fun. At all. Period. I Xavier R rated this a ten because he saw it online.

Didnt buy the 2007 version because this one was so bad. Expand

    What impresses me most, though, is that other than the load times, all of the same goodies from the console version were ported to the PSP with few technical sacrifices (the loss of a second analog stick and two shoulder buttons didn't hurt the gameplay one bit).
  2. The gameplay holds up tremendously well on the PSP platform, as does the presentation. But the lack of compelling, differing content makes it a tough sell to those who previously invested $50 in this year's game.
  3. This is a cracking port of a cracking game with very few compromises. Find three mates to play against and it's better still. [PSW]
