  • Excerpt: The first Death Jr. was actually the first PSP game ever unveiled. I can remember the thrilling feeling I felt when I saw how good a handheld game could look. Death Jr. eventually ended up as a decent action-platform title whose inherent flaws were supported well enough by a dose of Devil May Cry-style gameplay, a lot of enemies on-screen, and some of the better graphics on the PSP in its earliest days. The sequel came a year later—and Death Jr.

5 July 2007
  • Excerpt: In 2005, the original Death Jr. was released for the Sony PlayStation Portable. The game received some praise for its unique and interesting cast of characters, but was hit hard for its troubled camera and combat. Still, in 2006 Konami decided to give the series another shot with the release of Death Jr. II: Root of Evil for the PSP. Will this sequel bring new life to the series? Or should this one stay dead? Read on to find out.

Death Jr. 2: Root of Evil

  • Excerpt: The platforming genre has been something of a crooked nail to hit since the PlayStation Portable first touched down on American soil. And the flaws are common enough to be laundry-listed. If it's not a busted camera, it's a poor execution of controls. If it's not controls, it's back to the wanky game angles.

  • Conclusion: is an action/adventure game for the PSP. It features a goofy tale about the son of the Grim Reaper, DJ, who finds himself in a predicament when he and a friend unleash an evil force. DJ and company embark on a journey to stop the Root of Evil and return everything back to the way it was. The storyline proves to be a fun part of the game with strong animations and voiceovers. The game also has solid graphics and great game play that is both addictive and fun.

  • Summary: Death Jr. 2 ist bestimmt kein Überflieger, tut aber auch nicht weh: Die Entwickler haben das Potential einer „Tim Burton“-artigen Welt auch im zweiten Teil nicht konsequent genutzt. Zu belanglos ist die Story, zu eintönig das Gameplay auf Dauer. Da können auch die schicke Grafik, die gelungenen Zwischensequenzen und das abgefahrene Design der Level und Gegner die fehlende Atmosphäre nicht retten. Hüpf- und Springfreunde werden solide unterhalten, mehr aber auch nicht.

  • Summary: Trotz eines eher mäßigen ersten Teiles schickt Konami mit Death Jr. 2: Root of Evil den nächsten Titel ins Rennen, erneut mit schwarzem Humor und skurillen Charakteren. Trotz der eigentlich recht guten Grafik wird der Spielspaß durch die schwächelnde Steuerung getrübt. Ob das Spiel dennoch das Potenzial zu einem Hit hat, erfahrt ihr hier.

  • Excerpt: В свое время оригинальная Death Jr. стала одной из первых игр, заявленных для еще не вышедшей тогда PSP. Проект, где главная роль отводилась малолетнему отпрыску самой Смерти, казался многообещающим, но, увы, надежд не оправдал. Теперь студия Backbone решила попытать счастья во второй раз – хотя, судя по всему, не в ее правилах учиться на собственных ошибках. Раз уж вспомнили о финале, скажем пару слов и о том, с чего все началось.
