REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

BOTTOM LINE

Whoever designed the PSP without a second analog stick doomed the system.  It is only successful because kids want it and some adults like its flexibility, but, it is a FAILURE because it cannot reproduce the control scheme of games it is designed to mimic in graphical quality.

Face Buttons =/= analog stick. That's putting it perfectly.

You could easily have multiplayer Counterstrike, Rainbow 6 and whatever else with high playability if the system had two analog sticks.   Right now, all PSP is good for is 3Rd person fighting games or 2D fighters.
