We already published the list of best PSP games of all time, now it’s time to discover the best PSP action-adventure games of all time.
With amazing titles like the Grand Theft Auto series, God of War series, and Metal Gear series, the PSP surely have a great collection of action-adventure games.
If you’re a fan of both PSP and action-adventure games, there’s a chance you’ll like this list.
Most of you will recognize (or even still playing) some of the games mentioned on this list.
#25. Spider-Man 2
You play as Spiderman as he protects New York citizens from the terror of Doc Ock and various classic Marvel villains.
Master new moves, jump, swing, and wall-crawl into more than 19 levels that extend beyond the Spider Man 2 movie in 3D environment.
First of all, this game is not like the PS2 version, which is basically GTA Spider Man.
Spider-Man 2 consists of more than 19 loosely interconnected levels, which touch on the main story points of the movie.
Not as open world as the PS2, but still deliver the sense of role-playing as Spider Man.
The control is fine, you move Spidey with analog stick and move camera with d-pad, doesn’t feel practical since both analog and d-pad are located on the left stick but fortunately you won’t have to move the camera that often.
The actual combat is simple but pretty fun.
No need to do combo, but there’s surprisingly in-depth training mode to learn the proper combo.
While the content is rather limited since it’s partly a movie adaptation, the presentation of this game is impressive.
Spider Man itself is looking pretty detailed with fluid and nice animation. And the environment looks convincing enough.
Audio is great with a lot of use of authentic speech and good sound effects.
Overall it’s a great Spider man game with impressive graphics and exciting boss fight, but a little lacking in terms of content.
#24. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
The trio are back in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a game based on J.K. Rowling’s fourth book.
You follow Harry, the wizard-in-training, as he confronts a fire-breathing dragon, rescues friends from the icy depths of the Black Lake, and navigates the twisting maze corridor.
As Harry, Ron, or Hermione, you can cast a variety of spells in both single-player and cooperative modes.
The PSP version of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is practically identical to the big console version minus few stuffs added and removed.
The primary gameplay in The Goblet of Fire involves collecting Triwizard shields that are scattered around various levels.
Some are hidden away, while others are earned from boss fights.
There’s Triwizard challenges you can unlock.
Most of them follow what Harry did in the movie like flying off with a broom, with a dragon in pursuit.
These challenges help mix up gameplay a little.
The graphics of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire are quite good for a console game, excelling in the environment most of the time.
The spell effects are impressive with vibrant particles and lightning effects.
The characters unfortunately look a little blocky up close, mostly during cutscenes.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire does a good job of emulating the experience of its movie version.
The multiplayer co-op is a worthy addition in case you want to play with friends.
#23. Prince of Persia Revelations
Embark on an impossible odyssey to defy his preordained death as the Prince of Persia.
One fate, one million ways to defy it. A sequel to Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
You play as the Prince of Persia that possess various extraordinary acrobatic abilities.
You can run up and along walls, jump great distances, climb up poles, walk a tightrope across narrow beams, and scale sheer rock faces using narrow crevices as handholds.
Prince of Persia Revelations is basically the second iteration of the Warrior Within, with a few extra levels tacked on to lengthen a long single-player campaign.
The controls are also quite good even without a second analog stick.
You’ll still be able to manipulate the camera by holding down the left shoulder button and moving the analog stick around.
The graphics are very impressive for a portable game with a lot of environmental detail and good detail in the character models.
The sound effects and load times are two big problems in the game.
Sound sometimes stutters and the loading times are extremely long.
Overall this is a great iteration, but it has some serious bugs that hamper the experience.
#22. Corpse Party: Book of Shadows
Join the Kisaragi High students once again as they relive the unearthly horrors of a cursed school armed with future memories in a vain attempt to change their own grim fates.
Witness several crucial incidents that occurred during or before the previous game’s events and delve deeper into the mysteries of Heavenly Host as survivors from Corpse Party investigate an even more horrifying location in a desperate search for answers.
Corpse Party: Book of Shadows is a first-person point-and-click adventure style game, with binaural 3D audio with Japanese voices and dozens of endings.
During the gameplay, you’ll occasionally find yourself faced with at least two choices.
Choosing the wrong one usually ends with the death of the character you’re controlling at the time.
Yet, that mistake is part of the “fun” as you experienced the last moment of whoever you’re controlling.
Thankfully you can save anywhere, so you won’t have to backtrack for a long time over a bad decision.
The game delivers around 15 to 20 hours’ worth of story for those willing to sit through all the true endings and the bad endings, along with the opportunity to unlock the eighth chapter leading up to the next installment in the series.
Despite a somewhat tedious gameplay, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows is a rare example of a horror game that actually tries to frighten you.
#21. Obscure: The Aftermath
A group of hapless young teenagers, trapped inside their school were hunted by their headmaster’s biological experiments.
Some survived while some others perished.
Obscure: The Aftermath is a PSP port of a Wii game that was itself a sequel to a marginally popular Resident Evil knockoff released back in 2004.
Obscure: The Aftermath picks up the story as a few of the survivors of the original game, now college students, must deal with a strange black flower spreading like kudzu all over their campus.
The control is pretty similar to other horror games, you control one of six available characters often with an AI companion.
The AI is, quite frankly, really bad. Good thing you can do co-op and let your co-op friend control the AI.
Visually, the game looks great on a small PSP screen with a surprising amount of details given to the environment.
Unfortunately, the story falls flat. Most of the characters feel like a generic slasher movie character.
Overall it’s a good game, great in presentation, but lacking in certain parts of gameplay and story.
#20. Manhunt 2
Dr. Danny Lamb is an asylum inmate who manages to escape thanks to a freak electrical malfunction.
He doesn’t remember much, but he’s able to fill in bits and pieces through flashbacks, and with the help of fellow inmate and constant companion Leo.
As Danny begins to remember more and more, he finds himself getting to the bottom of a medical experiment called “The Project,” and discovers just how involved he was in its development.
Aside from the very nature of stealth gameplay (you always fear getting caught), there’s nothing scary here.
You’re still fighting for your life, but unlike the original game’s protagonist, Danny could simply disappear if he wanted to.
You control Danny from a third-person view as you avoid the watchful eyes of enemies and attempt to pick them off one by one.
Danny can hold his own somewhat in standard melee combat, as long as he is armed with the right weapon.
You’ll use clubs, knives, shards of glass, and plenty of other instruments.
Aside from the occasionally flaccid gunplay, the game is highly challenging, especially so on the appropriately titled insane difficulty level.
Manhunt 2 is a good fit on the PSP. Part of this has to do with the clarity of the screen, which makes execution moves look crisper than they do on consoles.
If you like a good, sneaky adventure, you’ll find a lot to chew on here.
#19. MediEvil: Resurrection
The beloved MediEvil franchise comes to the PSP console with new characters, environments, mini-games, and more.
Challenge the darkness and death of Gallowmere as Sir Daniel Fortesque returns from the grave to foil the evil sorcerer Zarok’s plans of demise.
MediEvil: Resurrection is a pseudo-remake of the original game, but with some slightly changed levels and a handful of minigames tacked on.
Players control Sir Daniel Fortesque as he travels through Gallowmere to stop the evil Zarok.
Dan can utilize a variety of weapons from close range to long range weapons like bow.
On your way to confront Zarok and save the kingdom, you’ll encounter plenty of cartoony monstrosities.
As a result, you’ll have to rely heavily on your weapons to hack your way through Zarok’s minions.
The combat is simple but pretty challenging, especially due to the difficult camera control.
Fortunately there is more to the game than combat and platforming challenges.
There are also a number of minigames in MediEvil: Resurrection, and most of them are entertaining for at least a short while.
MediEvil: Resurrection looks nice, and although each of the 19 levels has a specific theme, they all carry enough of the same details to make Gallowmere feel like a cohesive fantasy world.
Overall, the game hasn’t aged well, and although it has plenty of personality, the maddening camera control and broken combat mechanics quickly spoil the fun.
#18. Tomb Raider: Legend
In a race against time, Lara must travel across the globe to unearth history’s greatest weapon, a legendary artifact of such immense power it could threaten humanity’s very existence.
Take Lara back to the tombs with totally new moves and hi-tech gadgetry in her most explosive adventure ever.
Tomb Raider: Legend follows Lara Croft as she tries to piece together the fragmented memories and knowledge of her past.
For the most part, the story is just an excuse to travel all over the world in search of mystical artifacts and the answers to the questions about her past.
There are eight levels in the game, each take you to exotic locations on four different continents.
Lara has a handy magnetic grapple this time around that lets her grab distant objects, tow large items around to be used to weigh down switches and such, and swing across chasms like Pitfall Harry.
Lara knows her way around a firearm too, be it her twin pistols, a grenade launcher, or a mounted chaingun, though, the gunplay is by far the weakest part of the game.
The human foes and occasional leopard are nothing to worry about, but the camera can often become your greatest enemy.
The sound in Legend hasn’t been sacrificed in translation to the PSP.
Lara and the other characters are all interesting and full of personality, thanks to some great voice acting.
If you can get past the poor controls and irritating camera, Tomb Raider: Legend on the PSP offers the same fairly enjoyable experience as its PC and console counterparts.
#17. Prince of Persia Rival Swords
The sorry is set after the events of Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, as The Prince and Kaileena return to the city of Babylon, they find it being ravaged by war.
Their ship is attacked and destroyed, and he and Kaileena wash ashore.
The Prince awakens and watches as enemy soldiers take Kaileena away.
The Prince fights his way into the palace and confronts the Vizier, who kills Kaileena with the Dagger of Time, unleashing the Sands again.
Rival Swords is a great port of Two Thrones onPSP and package with some worthwhile additions, making this the most content-laden version of them all.
The ability to manipulate time plays a prominent role in Rival Swords.
The dagger eventually acquires other attributes, such as the ability to slow down time, as you progress the story.
Standing between you and the Vizier is an army of supersoldiers who are hell-bent on seeing you to an early grave.
As usual, the Prince will be able to make quick work of them with the various abilities he has.
Two Thrones was an excellent-looking game on the consoles, and despite the PSP’s hardware limitations, Rival Swords captures that look well.
Likewise, most of the sound is carried over from the Two Thrones, and overall it sounds as good as it did in that game.
Despite the quirks in its presentation, Rival Swords will have no problems pleasing fans of both Prince of Persia and action adventures.
#16. Gun Showdown
Colton White is a young man on a quest for revenge.
After a sudden attack on a steamboat resulted in an explosion that claimed his father’s life, Colton wanders into town with only one clue: a token for the Alhambra Saloon.
What quickly follows is an adventure that puts him up against a number of criminals.
Along the way, Colton will shoot a bloody path across the towns of Dodge and Empire City as he discovers who killed his father, and why.
One thing to note, even though this game is technically a port of the PS2 version, Showdown has received the “Director’s Cut” treatment, with five brand new missions included into the game.
The plot isn’t the only thing that’s been bolstered in Showdown.
Now, players have access to throwing knives for silent kills, and mines that can take down carts or be detonated from a distance.
If you’d like a change of pace from the story mode, you can always mess around with the quickplay modes.
The game supports multiplayer for up to six people.
The main modes are a standard deathmatch and “golden cross,” a keep-away game whose winner is the player who can stay alive for the longest amount of time while holding onto a special item.
Even with all the sacrifice done to fit the game on the PSP screen, the visuals still look beautiful.
Overall, Gun Showdown is a good way to get your Wild West fix, anytime and anyplace.
#15. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
Harry Mason wakes up after a car accident to find that his daughter Cheryl is missing.
Harry will wander the snowy streets of Silent Hill searching for answers to her disappearance, but when the world freezes over, he will need to escape the lumbering demons that haunt his steps.
You follow Harry as he works his way finding his daughter in the Silent Hill.
Shattered Memories is an adventure game riddled with a host of disturbing themes from the town that most of inhabitants are missing to the periodical scream from the icy formation.
Shattered Memories looks pretty good on the smaller screen with a robust particle system that allows for heavy snowfall.
The expansive world is completely streamed and you therefore won’t encounter any exorbitant load times, which is great.
Shattered Memories effectively maintains an air of unease and the element of surprise.
In one moment, Harry is trudging through heavy snow and in the next you discover yourself inexplicably seated in an armchair and interfacing with a psychologist.
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is worthy of a closer look if you are craving a horror game.
#14. Corpse Party
Join eight students and one teacher as they inadvertently invoke a powerful curse and find themselves wandering the haunted halls of Heavenly Host, a constantly shifting echo of a tragedy-stricken elementary school that should have been torn down decades ago.
Corpse Party is a game that’s filled with unbelievable moments and keeps your attention until the bitter end.
The story revolves around a group of eight students and one teacher that is accidentally transformed to the past school filled with horrors. You follow them as they try to survive.
The plot of Corpse Party is broken up into five chapters, and in each one you control different members of the gang.
Corpse Party‘s narrative is fairly linear, there are many ways it can play out, and your decisions can alter the adventure.
At the same time, there are numerous ways of making a mistake and ending your game.
While the game still retains the 16-bit look like the original that came out in 1996, new character designs for the dialogue sequences have been incorporated.
Given the rarity of scary and shocking games, Corpse Party is once again a fresh and welcome experience.
#13. Me & My Katamari
Take the adventure on the road as the Prince or one of his many cousins, rolling up objects in order to create islands for a bunch of homeless animals.
Enjoy fun and quirky gameplay, accompanied by a wonderfully varied soundtrack.
Just like the previous series, this game is all about collecting stuff with sticky ball, that will grow larger as you collect more items.
The ball starts off small and can only collect small stuff, but will get larger as you collect items, which in turn enables you to collect letter stuff.
At its core, the game is one part puzzle and one part actioner that simultaneously tests your planning and maneuvering skills.
Evolving from the smallest of the small while collecting paper clips, thumbtacks, and other miniature items to eventually become larger than a house is deeply satisfying, and figuring out how to weave your way into hidden nooks and crannies to acquire the goodies needed to get you there is all part of the fun.
The game has an incredible pastel color palette, and its unique sense of design saturates everything.
Unfortunately, the visuals do suffer from a surprising amount of slowdown and the typical camera issues associated with the franchise.
Me and My Katamari are still able to deliver fun with it’s great gameplay design and charming characters and art despite all the flaws it has.
#12. Dead Head Fred
This game is part horror and part comedy game.
You play as Fred Neuman, a private investigator with the ability to switch heads.
Fred has recently been murdered and decapitated, and has few memories of the events leading to his death.
You follows Fred as he pieces together the clues of his murder and tries to get revenge on the man who killed him.
The main gameplay mechanic involves head swapping.
You’ll start out with a brain in a jar that you can wear on your neck.
You’ll gain more head as you progress through the story. Each head has it’s own unique ability.
The game environment is large, with a lot of different areas and things to do.
The bulk of the game focuses on the weak combat and simple navigation of areas, which is harder than it sounds because it’s often tough to tell where you’re supposed to go.
It’s a shame that so many different parts of Dead Head Fred come up short because underneath all of the mess is a really neat game with plenty of variety and a decent sense of style.
#11. Silent Hill: Origins
Travis Grady, a trucker, navigating through a downpour of rain on an eerie and foreboding night.
Travis spots a little girl in the middle of the highway just in time to avoid hitting her.
She runs off, and Travis, for no apparent reason, takes pursuit.
Origins is a prequel set before the events of the original Silent Hill for the PlayStation.
Like the previous Silent Hill games, Origins is light on scares but heavy on murky atmosphere and mysterious dialogue.
A Silent Hill fan might already have an idea of who that girl Travis chase might be.
You control Travis from a third-person view, navigating between destinations through the foggy streets of the titular Silent Hill town.
You’ll encounter your fair share of monstrous oddities, some new, many familiar.
While the visuals simply can’t compete with the PS2, a lot of models seem to have been enhanced.
Fortunately, the sound design is fantastic, thanks to a terrifically disturbing soundtrack and all the menacing bump-in-the-night echoes that ring throughout the streets and hallways.
#10. Tomb Raider: Anniversary
Tomb Raider: Anniversary follows the tale of Lara’s hunt for the Scion of Atlantis as she does battle with conniving businesswoman Jacqueline Natlas and her various henchmen.
You’ll explore ancient tombs and forgotten cities in Peru, Greece, or Egypt.
This game is effectively the remake of the original Tomb Raider in the new console.
The whole experience is highly evocative of the original, and there are plenty of moments that are specifically designed to create an odd sense of déjà vu.
Everything is bigger and better now, with the larger and more detailed environments and more elaborate existing puzzles.
Your biggest adversary here is the environment, though you will still encounter some antagonistic flora and fauna from time to time.
Overall, this is the best Tomb Raider game in years, and for the first time in a long time, that actually means something.
#9. Age of Zombies
You’re Barry Steakfries, a one-liner-dealin’ dude who reminds you of every action hero in every ’80s action flick, and you’re getting teleported through time in an attempt to take out an army of zombies whipped up by a mad scientist.
This PSP Mini game is simple, more than a little stupid, and a lot of fun.
You move Barry around the screen with the D-pad or nub and shoot with the face buttons.
That means the X button will shoot downward, square button shoot to the right, and so on.
Shooting zombies has been done before, but what keeps Age of Zombies ahead of the pack is the game’s graphics, humor, and gameplay, and they’re all intertwined.
Then, you have these goofy lines from Barry mixed with great level names and tossed in with special time period zombies such as zombie ninjas and such.
It’s really fun when you have a level populated with zombies of all types and sizes chasing Barry down.
Age of Zombies is nearly the perfect Mini with clever delivery and the soundtrack full of different tracks for every time period.
#8. LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy
A combination fun and endless customization of everything LEGO and the epic story, characters, and action from Star Wars creates a unique game that lets you Build and Battle your way through a tongue-in-cheek Star Wars galaxy.
It was a curious combination, but it worked because the gameplay was novel enough.
The combined nostalgia for Star Wars and Legos was potent, and the experience was delivered with a humorous, lighthearted flair.
You start out in the Mos Eisley Cantina, which serves as a hub from which you can access all three episodes, as well as a counter where you can purchase extra stuff.
Also worth noting that Lego Star Wars II seems to be taking most of its cues from the original theatrical releases. Hardcore fans will be pleased with this.
The gameplay is primarily an action adventure in which you control a group of characters and do some light puzzle-solving with the occasional platform-jumping.
Lego Star Wars II puts a greater emphasis on vehicles with various vehicles from the series available for you to ride.
The visuals have a lot of charm with that familiar lego looking Star Wars characters and environment.
Overall it’s a good and fun novel game.
#7. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
As a soldier, Vic Vance has always protected his dysfunctional family, his country, himself.
One bad decision later and that job is about to get much harder.
Kicked out onto the streets of a city torn between glamour and gluttony, Vic is faced with a stark choice, build an empire or be crushed.
You follow Vic as he starts building his criminal empire alongside his brother, Lance.
Vice City Stories returns to the pastel and neon-colored excesses of the 1980s in a city modeled after ’80s-era Miami.
Vice City Stories improves upon some of the flaws found in the first game as well as a great deal more personality.
The story still feels pretty sub-par even though it’s clear that it is a GTA story.
Certain conventions of the series are starting to feel a bit antiquated.
Still, this is one of few PSP titles that let you free roam a city and let you do whatever you want in it.
This game is a prequel, taking place in 1984, a couple of years prior to the original game.
For what it’s worth, once you get through about the first hour of the game, you’ll probably be inclined to stop questioning why Vic is doing what he’s doing and just go with it.
The control works just like in the Liberty City Stories, along with its drawbacks.
The visuals are great with it’s excellent 1980’s vibe.
Neon lights, slick sports cars, awful fashion, and fantastic music all permeate the experience.
The game’s audio is easily the high point.
Vic, annoying as he is, is voiced well, as are the other characters voiced by celebrities and unfamiliar actors alike.
Vice City Stories is certainly an enjoyable follow-up to what Liberty City Stories offered last year.
#6. Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops
Snake’s latest assignment takes him to a secret Soviet base in South America, and at the beginning of the game, he’s captured and detained there by members of his own former FOX unit.
He escapes with the help of a young Green Beret named Roy Campbell.
Agrees that they can’t succeed in this situation on their own, they begin recruiting some of the enemy soldiers to their cause.
Even though not called as MGS4, this game is a direct continuation of the storyline presented in 2004’s MGS3: Snake Eater.
In turn, it sheds new light on some of the mysteries of the previous games in the series.
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops takes the series in some interesting, new directions from a gameplay standpoint.
This game has it all, featuring not only a great, open-ended solo campaign, but also some extensive multiplayer options and plenty of other surprises.
Complicated controls and a storyline that doesn’t waste much time on exposition mean Portable Ops will take a while for inexperienced players to get into.
The visuals are amazing on the small PSP screen considering how much detail is crammed into the game.
Though MGS fans may be disappointed by the lack of blood in this game considering how prominent it was in MGS 3.
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops features some great new ideas along with a story that will have fans of the series talking for months.
#5. God of War: Ghost of Sparta
Set between God of War and God of War II, Kratos, now a god, is plagued by a vision we’ve never seen before, an old woman lying sick on a slab of stone.
Convinced he can actually change this vision, Kratos sets off for Atlantis on a quest that eventually takes him back to his home of Sparta and into the realm of Thanatos, god of death.
Ghost of Sparta is an impressive technical achievement that is almost indistinguishable from its PlayStation 2 brothers.
This game delivers the breathtaking sense of scale for which the series is known.
Incredible visuals ensure the mythical locations you venture to continually amaze with their strong sense of place and varied artistic design.
Sharp controls push Kratos’ unrelenting rage to the forefront so you can focus on tearing the minions who dare oppose you limb from bloody limb.
Aside from a few awkward moments, Ghost of Sparta is another great entry in the respected series that does justice to Kratos’ deadly exploits.
#4. Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
Once a trusted wise guy in the Leone crime family, Toni Cipriani was forced into hiding after killing a mad man.
Forced to fight for his life in an odyssey that will shake Liberty City to its foundations, Toni must use any means necessary to secure his place in the leadership of the Leone family in a town up for grabs.
If you have played past GTA games, you’ll recognize a few of the names and faces.
But the story stands alone and doesn’t require you to remember the various cast members.
Story missions will take about 11 hours to complete, but there’s so much more to this game than just story missions. A lot of side missions are fun and diverse.
The weapons in Liberty City Stories are what you’d expect from a Grand Theft Auto game.
There’s pistols, submachine guns, shotguns, and some higher-powered weaponry.
Liberty City Stories support multiplayer for up to six players.
The game looks great on PSP, but some part of it looks a little unsightly with a less than stable frame rate that happens quite often.
Overall, it’s amazing that GTA: Liberty City Stories manages to cram in so much of the GTA experience that you’re used to seeing on consoles.
Definitely worth buying if you’re GTA fans.
#3. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
After killing his “traitorous” mentor the Boss in Metal Gear Solid 3, Snake left the United States and founded Militaires Sans Frontieres, a militia of sorts that takes on causes and missions for those who need their help.
Soon, a professor and student show up begging for assistance as the CIA is invading Costa Rica.
Snake balks at the offer, but when the professor plays a tape that seemingly proves that the Boss is alive, MSF takes the contract.
This is a stealth game, your goal is to complete the mission objective without being seen or heard.
You’ll take Snake though jungles and riverbeds while popping bad guys with tranquilizer darts or bullets.
This game is huge.
You’re building MSF in this game, creating the infamous stronghold known as Outer Heaven that Solid Snake will have to destroy in the original Metal Gear.
So, a tweak on gameplay this time around is having to capture enemies to fill out your squadron.
Peace Walker puts an emphasis on shorter gameplay sessions, so each mission is its own task.
This game has extra focus on co-op via ad-hoc.
Every mission in Peace Walker is available for you and a buddy to conquer.
One issue about this game is that it seems too deep for its own good, so keep that in mind when playing this game.
Overall this game is a rare masterpiece on PSP that you have to play at least once.
This is also the best Metal Gear Solid game of its time.
#2. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
Huang Lee, a no-good loner, was happy to be a rich, spoiled kid eating up all of his father’s money.
One day, his pop is murdered.
Huang must return to Liberty City to pass on a family heirloom and keep the world spinning.
Huang’s father was the leader of the Triads in L.C. and his death has sparked a bit of a power struggle in the metropolis.
You play as Huang as he goes through his ordeal in the Liberty City.
One thing to note about Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is that it plays slightly differently from past GTA games.
Perspective is now on top-down view instead of 3rd person and no voice acting.
You started out as Huang is abducted, left for dead, and robbed of the sword that was his sole purpose for coming to town.
The story goes on from here.
Most of the main story is broken down to around 70 missions, each of it has you working for various people.
Beyond the story stuff, there are ambulance missions, vigilante missions, Chinese food delivery missions, people to find and help on the street and the act of dealing drugs.
New to this game is that you can reduce your wanted level by knocking police cars, unlike in the past games.
The amount of car you need to knock to de-escalate your wanted level is equal to your star level, one car for each star.
The loading and saving on this game is pretty bad, it took quite a bit of time if you’re using the UMD.
Though it’s a different case for the digital version.
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is simply outstanding despite being a port of DS title.
The story is great, the game itself is a blast, running drugs is a welcome addition, the new cop takedowns are cool, and there’s so much to do.
#1. God of War: Chains of Olympus
You play as Kratos as he is ordered by the Gods to journey the underworld, after the world plunges into darkness.
Face the most feared creatures of Greek mythology and choose between personal redemption and saving the ancient world from destruction.
God of War: Chains of Olympus is a prequel to the original God of War.
The game opens in Attica, where Kratos helps defend the city against the impending Persian forces.
Like the previous title, the story of this game is mostly linear.
The control is just like the PS2 God of war, with few changes, which is great because you won’t accidentally waste precious magic with that changes.
The combat is extremely responsive, perfectly mimicking the console version.
The visuals of this game are just impressive, probably the best looking game on PSP.
The audio is right on par with its visuals.
The combat effects sound great here, and the soundtrack perhaps even better than the score from the first two titles.
One impressive thing is that you’ll almost see a loading screen as long as you go straight forward.
You’ll see a few loading screens only when you go to the previous area.
God of War: Chains of Olympus is a stellar PSP title.
It plays perfectly into the franchise’s storyline and offers up the same level of intense action as its console counterparts.
It’s also the best looking title on the system.
Are your favorite games on the list?
Determining which PSP action-adventure game is the best is no doubt a never ending topic, but it’s absolutely fun!
