    Not only did it bring back memories of the fun I had playing the original Castlevania games on my NES, but the inclusion of so much extra content past the game’s story mode really makes this one of the stronger titles available.

    The dangerously addictive gameplay and numerous game modes will ensure that once you start playing you won’t be able to put your PSP down for a great while. Short 10-minute game quickies will rapidly turn into about three or four hour sessions, and then when you finally stop playing you will instantly begin to crave it all over again.

    Clearly the best game in the series yet, no ifs ands or buts about it.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Despite the new control scheme and a minor technical glitch here or there, once you’ve gotten past these idiosyncrasies you’re left with a truly engaging title with plenty of content to keep you recharging your PSP’s batteries time and time again.

    An outstanding next-gen racer and one of the best games for the 360 to date.

    It's sad that the game isn't longer or at least a bit more challenging, but regardless of those nagging sore spots The Minish Cap is a superb original installment that would be as well worth the money had it been released on the GameCube as it is on the GBA.

    Though the adventure is ridiculously short and there's not much of a plot to get behind, Gunstar Super Heroes through both its supreme gameplay and technical achievements is simply too brilliant and addictive a game to ignore.

    The enemy AI on here smokes that which is found in Bungie's FPS masterpiece, since everything here is vicious, blood-thirsty, filled with hatred, and most of all crack shots with whatever weapons they hold.

    A fantastic racing experience. Its accomplishments and improvements over the original far out-shadow the game's minimal flaws.

    I am a little disappointed with the number of glitches though and spending time playing as characters other than the exile is daunting at times, but these are all minor gripes for what is easily one of 2004's best games.

    The game can last up to 40+ hours, depending on how in-depth you want to get with your exploration. Once you make if past the first 3 hours or so, things begin to pick up quickly, so don't start thinking the game is as slow paced as the beginning stages.

    It’s a great game, as long as you aren’t expecting more than cars, cars, and more cars... The big thing that kept us down is the frame rate issue, which we both ended up agreeing was the major drag about this game.

    After countless days of sacrificing sleep to squeeze in a few more hours before finally taking a rest I can safely say it’s quite an addictive force once you get settled in.

    As a total package, Katamari Damacy is one of the most original, imaginative, and purely entertaining games to come along in years.

    The level of customization that one can put into an AC is simply mind boggling and easily has months of replay value just attempting to find the best combination of parts that will result in the most powerful AC.

    Yeah, it’s "only" a golf game, but it’s brilliant and definitely one of the best titles on the PSP, period.

    Excellent sense of immersion, great storytelling.

    The gameplay is fast, intense, challenging and addictive, and the amount of variety the game consistently manages to come up with is staggering.

    The PSP version of X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse is better than the console versions thanks to the surprising level of quality and faithfulness to the original product.

    The franchise’s grandest adventure yet, hands down. A few minor quibbles are the only flaws in what is an absolutely masterful action-RPG/adventure epic.

    Except for the mildly annoying audio elements and certain segments of the story mode bogging down in too much uninteresting dialogue, Mario Tennis: Power Tour really is a game you have to nitpick at in order to find any weaknesses -- nothing about the title stands out as being a serious problem whatsoever, it's that great.

    The solid single player game is long and demanding, the multiplayer offers more depth than what's available currently over Xbox Live and the mission editor allows for endless creative opportunities.

    The truly amazing thing here is that the game is only $19.99, a ridiculously low price for such a solid game.

    There's so much depth to be found here that to pass it up because it's not pushing the latest graphics technology would be foolish. Technical issues aside, you'll not find a more impressive game world on a home console offline RPG, period.

    From Software always manages to amaze me with each new game they create, and Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors is their best work yet. Make this one an instant purchase.

    With up to 16 player games on 22 playable maps in 5 different mission types, SOCOM 2 puts even the heftiest of other multi-players to shame.

    It’s best to think of Hitman: Contracts as a mini game to keep fans of the series satisfied until a true sequel is released.

    EA Canada knew what they were doing with this title, and it has authenticity and entertainment written all over it. The revolutionary idea to add over 60 minor league teams is huge, and helps boost an already very robust Dynasty Mode.
