Title: Best PSP titles
Post by: The Dead Herring on April 09, 2008, 01:54:45 am
A new excuse has come into my life allowing me to purchase a new piece of consumer technology.

Namely, a PSP, I quite like the look of the White slim version and I'm kinda gettin' tired of all the touchscreen gimmicks on the DS (although Geometry Wars Galaxies is awesome)

So here I pose my question, what are the best titles?

I've pretty much paid no attention to PSP releases over the last few years so I have a very limited knowledge on the subject.

God Of War seems to have got some glowing reviews so I'll pick that up, and Wipeout Pulse looks like it will bring PS1 nostalgia flooding back.

What other games are there worth getting for the PSP?

Thanks,

Joe

God of War is defiantly a great buy.

Syphon Filter 1+2 is good for your action needs.

Lumines is a good puzzle game and Lumines 2 is pretty more of the same.

Haven't played Crisis Core yet, but it is suppose to be great.

Wipeout is also awesome.

Any special genre?

Thanks for the reply, as far as genres go, my favorites are probably action, racing, adventure, and action RPGs.

I play and enjoy just about every genre apart from RTSs which I'm rubbish at!

There are a lot of good racers too. Burnout, WipeOut (as mentioned) and a couple of others. Not a big fan of racers so I have only played a few.

Racing games you say you will be happy as a pig in mud with your choice of racing games on the psp.

I think I'm probably going to pick up God Of War, Wipeout Pulse, Colin McRae Rally 2005, and Daxter

The prices of the older titles has really plummeted which is nice too.

I'm also looking forward to checking out the homebrew stuff.

Oh god, why does PSP have to have such sucky titles, I wasted money when I bought this freakin' thing.

I'm pretty enjoying it actually, God Of War was absolutely awesome, I just finished it and playing it through again which is rare for me. Lumines 2 and Wipeout are both great and Daxter is good also.

They remade Final Fantasy Tactics for the PSP. Those of you (like me) who missed it the first time around should look into it.

If you like different types of games try Crush (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crush_%28video_game%29) on for size. It is supposed to be quite good.
