Will be picking up my new PSP tomorrow along with D&D tactics. Figured I needed to buy at least one game with it. I am specifically buying it for God of War which comes out next Jan/Feb I believe.
What games do people recommend on the PSP that are worth playing? And any games a four year old may be able to play/enjoy?
Tekken: Dark Resurrection–(awesome port)
Pinball Hall of Fame–(most bang for the buck, should be $10 if you look around a bit)
Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee
Every Extend Extra
A ton of great retro compilations (Gradius Collection, Capcom Arcade Classics, Taito Legends, and Sega Genesis Collection)
The PSP remake of FF: Tactics is worth it even if you already own and have played the PSX version. Trust me, I do and have. It feels like an entirely new game because of the retranslation and the cutscenes.
The PSP version of Pirates! is my favorite at the moment - they made the dancing much less annoying and the controls feel generally superior. It also lends a bit more direction to play by giving you specific objectives to accomplish in order to find the evil Marquis (though you’re still free to futz around doing other stuff as much as you like). It is slightly stripped down, though, because of the limitations of the system, and a little buggy.
For those alone? No. Especially since Puzzle Quest is available for three other platforms, DS included, Worms: Open Warfare 2 is also on DS, and Pirates! on PC and Xbox. I love mine, I’d definitely recommend it in general, but not based on those particular games. (Crush is good, but not good enough to be worth the price of the PSP.)
