    A stunning MOBA that's been made with mobile in mind, but without compromising on the tactical depth or visual splendour of its PC-based influences.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's you and your machine versus the circuit. In this respect, Gran Turismo PSP doesn't stall, effortlessly powering to the front of the handheld field in a manner that is likely to leave many a petrolhead breathless.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An engrossing strategy game with a rich array of units, excellent replay value and a history lesson thrown in.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may have little grounding in reality, but Me & My Katamari is so unique and delightful – from the very germ of the idea through to its jaw-dropping, coherent and bursting-with-character execution – that it's one of those games you simply must play.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A truly independent voice amongst the blockbusters, this artistic puzzler deserves to be a breakout hit.

    Slightly bruised by its host hardware, but otherwise a technically outstanding, impressively comprehensive and hugely enjoyable fighting package.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Devilishly unforgiving and dangerously infuriating. But also delicately updated and delightfully addictive.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    First-rate conversion of two excellent games that, individually, lose a little of their spark on PSP, although nothing that significantly dulls the overall experience.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best PSP football sim to date.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Big, brash and beautiful, Ace Combat X is a prime example of the PSP's capabilities and deserves a place in every thrill-seeking PSP owner's collection.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Boasting charming touches, rammed full of content and even trailing a Wi-Fi infrastructure multiplayer mode, it's an easy recommendation for anyone with an itchy trigger finger.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Even if the combat mechanics aren't alive and kicking, with its inventive puzzles and unique sense of style the body of Dead Head Fred offers an experience PSP owners shouldn't miss.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Children of Mana brings intelligence and charm into the realm of dungeon-based button bashing.
    • 83 Metascore

    With its learning curve, Rocket Slime offers charm, weirdness and huge, huge tanks.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Effortlessly stylish, engagingly simple but deep and beguiling, this is handheld twitch gaming concentrate.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With oceanic depth, honed controls and absorbing missions, this is the epitome of bad, meaning good.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A stylish, noir-inspired adventure with a sophisticated plot and deep characters, Hotel Dusk is the place to stay for smart DS gamers.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Greater than the sum of its parts, it's eventually hard to feel anything but sheer joy when playing Magical Starsign.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin is a deep, enthralling game but the presence of some flawed elements mean it's not as good as the previous "Dawn of Sorrows."
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A compelling mix of dark plots, kooky stories and lawyer talk, Justice for All adds more evidence to the DS's case as the thinking person's console.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A decent driving model set within a rich virtual petrolhead lifestyle world that – occasional technical glitches aside – can prove absorbing.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An improvement over its predecessor in almost every area and as such the new lord of free-roaming gangster simulations – there's nothing to match it on PSP. But the narrative feels a little undercooked.
