Conclusion: has always been about larger than life cartoon action. I thought about giving Size Matters some leeway because it is, after all, a PSP port but considering the two platforms are close to equivalent in regard to hardware I just can’t let it slide. been eliminated by way of the second analog stick available on the Playstation 2 controller. Sometimes it works and sometimes, especially in the later levels where the enemies are thick on the ground, it doesn’t.
