Call of Duty: Roads to Victory PSP Review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: Thanks to the lack of variety and the occasional glitch, there was definitely a hint of a rushed game when EA’s Medal of Honor was released on the PSP. It was enjoyable enough, but it was still a little disappointing in a series that has offered us such delights as the very first game, as well as Underground and Frontline. Activision’s Call of Duty games are also great, and like MOH before it the series has gone portable.
Excerpt: Despite oversaturation, I have always been a fan of WWII games, primarily because of my interest in the era. Though Medal of Honor was the first, the Call of Duty series, with the exception of Big Red One , has consistently delivered one of the better WWII shooter experiences. Call of Duty: Roads to Victory is the series' first foray onto the PSP and, although it does manage to showcase the intensity and cinematic feel of past games, it is hampered by the technical...
Excerpt: The Call of Duty series has been known for delivering some memorable and intense battle settings in spite of its linear level design and scripted action. Now for the first time the series goes portable with Call of Duty: Roads to Victory. In the past the series has always had the power of PCs or home consoles to work with when creating its battles, but how does it fare when shrunk down to fit in the palm of you hand on the PSP?
Excerpt: Holy Nazi's-over-Normandy! Finally, the Call of Duty series hits the handheld console market and the PSP gets exclusive bragging rights. Call of Duty: Roads to Victory is first ever installment of the renowned series on a portable system and looks to show quite a bit of promise as we take Activision's franchise World War II first-person shooter on the go.
Conclusion: is a decent game that could have been better. There are significant issues associated with limited game play and less than average controls. When considering it for on-the-go gaming, it makes for decent entertainment. "Road To Victory" is easy to pick up and play and does not have a difficult learning curve. On that note, this game is probably best reserved as a rental while on vacation because you probably won't want to play it when you are finished with it.
Excerpt: It's tough being a PSP developer nowadays. It wasn't so bad back when it was just the PS2 and Xbox alongside the PSP, but now that people are expecting HD graphics on their home consoles, it makes the PSP and its limited graphics capabilities look pretty ugly in comparison. Few games showcase this huge disparity better than Call of Duty . On home consoles, we get great visuals and fantastic sound, but on the PSP those same games have to lose a massive amount of detail...
Excerpt: On one hand, you have possibly the worst Call of Duty title yet to be released. On the other, you have quite likely the best first person shooter the PlayStation Portable has to offer. Handheld systems have never been suited to first person shooters, with all attempts seen thus far usually failing horribly due to excessive annoying and restrictive game controls, coupled by developer’s ignorant belief that they don’t need to add all those added extras because handheld...
Conclusion: It simply can’t get over the control drawbacks of Sony’s handheld. Some awesome sections of play draw you into the game, but with no real characterisation, it’s difficult to remain there for long.
