Chili Con Carnage PSP Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: If you’ve previously played 2005’s Total Overdose then this 2007 release of the jokingly-titled Chili Con Carnage should be very familiar to you. This isn’t a sequel as such, it’s more of a retread of Total Overdose, with locations, weapons, characters and actions all lifted from the said game.

Chili Con Carnage – Review

GameCritics.com
9 December 2007
  • Excerpt: A one-trick pony that manages to stay entertaining far longer than I would have ever expected, Chili Con Carnage is a passable action title more notable for its absurdity and humor than for its gameplay. Entirely comprised of the sort of leap-to-the-side-while-in-slow-motion "bullet time" action that's been a common staple since John Woo and Max Payne made it popular, Chili Con Carnage doesn't bring anything new to the table.

Extra Spicy Carnage

  • Excerpt: For some reason, I feel that if I were a better person, a more moral person, I would not like Chili Con Carnage as much as I do. When I first started playing, I could only think about how terribly overplayed the stereotypes were, but as I continued, I couldn't help but laugh at all the side jokes and allusions found in the game, my favorite being a small take from Reservoir Dogs: "You like K'Sanchez' Mariachi Mega Sounds? It's my personal favorite." Classic.

Chili Con Carnage

Game Boyz
10 September 2007
  • Excerpt: Based on the 2005 release of Total Overdose on the Xbox, PlayStation 2, and PC; Eidos and Deadline Games return with Chili Con Carnage for the PSP. In the past year we have seen our share of disappointing 3rd person shooters for the PSP. Fortunately, Chili Con Carnage arrives, delivering non-stop gun tooting action and an overall enjoyable experience. The game is fun and certainly has lasting appeal; however it’s not without some concerns which are examined below.

Chili Con Carnage Review

11 August 2007
  • Excerpt: It's taken a while, but the PSP has finally got a third-person shooter that really works. Chili Con Carnage is the follow-up game from Total Overdose creators Deadline Games, and they've taken everything that was good about that explosive thrill-ride and tailored it to be a perfect fit for Sony's handheld. While I was beginning to think that the PSP simply couldn't handle shooters, I now can't believe more games haven't used such a simple, yet enjoyable control scheme.

PSP Review - 'Chili Con Carnage'

WorthPlaying
14 June 2007
  • Summary: Chili Con Carnage is the spin-off of 2005's low-profile title Total Overdose. It combines a love of Robert Rodriguez-style Mexican action cinema, witty dialogue, and big explosions with Max Payne-style gameplay.

Chili Con Carnage

Auracore MediaWorks
28 May 2007
  • Summary: Chili may go with Carnage, but does it agree with your PSP?
  • Pros: Like having a Robert Rodriguez movie in the palm of your hand; lots of guns and power-ups; good sense of humor; deliciously over the top in every way; exploding and radioactive chickens.
  • Cons: -so graphics; controls and targeting can be iffy; no strafe function; in-between level challenges are more frustrating than fun; can get repetitive.

Expert Review

Game Freaks 365
8 May 2007
  • Excerpt: I remember receiving weekly press updates about Chili Con Carnage from Eidos and never quite knew what to make of it. The name alone is something that will draw attention. But when you open up the package and get it in your hands, the gameplay will be doing all of the attention drawing. This is a game that prides itself in its insanity in terms of its weapons, action and storyline.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is WARNING: if you are easily offended by Mexican stereotypes and being politically incorrect, then please hit Alt+F4 and cower away in the shadowy corners of your room. On the other-hand, if you do have a sense of humor, an effectuation with over-the-top action, and sombreros, then step right in and enter the world of CHILI CON CARNAGE!
