    A great sequel and a great action game for the PSP. Even though there aren’t a lot of new ideas, most of them are very well implemented. This second game on the PSP consummates the redemption of an old franchise and of Gabriel Logan as a lead character. [Dec 2007]

    It has charisma and it’s quite fun. Despite the arcade style, its combat mechanic is very technical and rewarding, although the difficulty could be more balanced. One final word for the character creator, that allows for the most bizarre creations. [Sept 2008]

    Arriving very late to Europe, Yakuza 2 is already showing signs of age. But despite some technical problems, it can make a good use of an interesting story, a brutal combat system and an exciting environment. [Oct 2008]

    In spite of its somewhat repetitive rhythm, Viking manages to offer to the player a great sense of accomplishment. It keeps us moving forward with the promise (always fulfilled) of some epic action sequences. The combat system is the result of a well balanced act between depth and accessibility. [Apr 2008]

    There’s a lot of intense moments in the single player campaign and the multiplayer supports 32 players. The PSP doesn’t have a lot of good FPS in its catalogue but Heroes 2 follows the same pattern of quality shown by the original title. [Dec 2007]

    Pro Evo appears to be tired and probably needs a break. It’s still a great soccer game, and when enjoyed with friends it’s still one of the best multiplayer games on consoles, but its stagnant state has to be recognized even by the most ferocious supporters. [Nov 2007]

    The combat system is still brilliant, Nero proves to be a good character and visually it’s pretty impressive. But we can’t help feeling a little disappointed. It’s still a great action game, but has the same flaws of every other title of the series. [Feb 2008]

    While it’s not a rupture from the series roots, this is still an excellent experience, thanks to a thrilling story and a group of characters that can touch the player. The tactical nature of the gameplay is still a distinctive approach in the World War II genre. [Oct 2008]

    Those who know what to expect from Harvest Moon will find here one of the best titles of the series. To those not familiar with the gameplay, we recommend the game with some caution, since it’s slow and repetitive mechanic, while captivating, will bore the less patient and frustrate those with little time to invest in the discovery of the hidden treasures of a country life. [May 2008]
    • Maxi Consolas (Portugal)
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The game stays true to the series and it manages to introduce some new mini-games between levels. There’s probably too much contextual actions going on, that slows down the action. But it’s a decent proposal for the PSP nonetheless. [Aug 2008]

    The way it makes fun of the videogame culture is pure Simpsons genius, but the gameplay gets in the way of all the fun. Fans will still have their Simpsons fix, but the marriage between two different mediums (the TV show and the videogame) doesn’t work out very well. [Nov 2007]

    Not a classic but probably one of the best Sims on consoles. It’s true that some of the magic is lost due to some objectives with obscure solutions and the excessive loadings. But the concept can be quite appealing at times. [Dec 2007]

    Here is one of the most interesting approaches to the SimCity concept. The slow pace can push away players expecting for quick fun, and the lack of more save slots can be frustrating for those of like to keep their cities. [Oct 2008]

    Falling short of the excellence usually offered by Bioware, as it invests in some repetitive elements of exploration and combat, this game has a simple mechanic, puzzles and a nice tactical element in battles. Despite the story’s slow start, in general it makes good use of the Sonic universe, presenting many known characters. [Oct 2008]

    It manages to accomplish what it intended: fast paced action, following the same paths in search of the perfect score. But besides its obvious inspiration, this is not a racing game and how many action fans will be willing to repeat the same processes over and over again? [Feb 2008]

    The least you can say is that this is a unique title with some genius moments. But the open world sections do more harm than good and the levels leading up to the assassins seem to lack some inspiration. But it’s still a unique experience that all Wii players should consider. [March 2008]

    The experience is not as fun as with plastic guitars. But it’s a well thought game to take advantage of the DS, with the help of the Guitar Grip. It’s a shame that the limitations of the console itself became an obstacle to the fun factor, making you struggle with the size of the console and the cramps on your hand. [Aug 2008]

    Despite being a fantastic game, we can't say we are totally satisfied with NBA Live 09. We are sure that the EA team has the talent to make a better game and taking the series to a really groundbreaking level, as they show with the NBA Live 365 functionality. [Oct 2008]

    Just in case you’re starving for some more Dragon Ball, Burst Limit offers a great visual representation of the series with a solid combat system, but there’s not as much content as the last PS2 entry. With its online modes, Burst Limit is a positive debut for current gen console, but we crave for more. [July 2008]

    It’s still a good game, but unfortunately it doesn’t offer anything that’s different or relevant when compared to last year’s title. This time, EA Sport’s rival "NHL 08" takes the throne. [Dec 2007]

    An expansion to Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty introduces some new gameplay mechanics and offers a slight push to the story. For those who miss Ratchet, here’s four hours plenty of fun, that compensate the lack of content with a low price. [Sept 2008]

    Following the steps of old GBA games of the same franchise, it doesn’t offer anything new. But it still manages to be addictive for player who like old fashion games, with a nice 2D and a difficulty level that can lead who to throw your DS against a wall. [March 2008]

    Even without offering something new to anyone who knows the franchise, it still manages to be a surprise. It’s pretty well executed for a portable game and the sound atmosphere is unsettling… as you might expect from a Silent Hill title. [Jan 2008]

    We welcome with open arms the change of attitude and approach of this new Need for Speed. But we frown upon some of the problems that were left unsolved, like the structure of the career mode but mainly on the handling of the cars. But for those who turned their backs on the previous games, it’s a good place to return to this franchise. [Dec 2007]

    The simplicity of all its elements is kind of a trademark for this Battalion Wars. But that can also be held against the game, because it could use a little more depth. But if you think of it for what it is and not for what it could have been you can enjoy it properly. [Jan 2008]
