Death Jr.

  • Conclusion: DJ’s scythe is one handy murder weapon; wire slides, ledge grabs, and hook- and rafter-swings are all on the menu as the game oscillates between manic shooting (certain enemies are wicked fast) and platforming.

  • Excerpt: Death Junior was the kooky son of death and was one of the PSP’s first featured games. A large amount of hype surrounded it because the graphics looked amazing for a handheld, and the style was unmistakably cute and catchy.

Death, Jr. 2: Root of Evil

DarkStation
31 October 2006
  • Conclusion: It is hard to see a game that plays as well as Death Jr. 2 struggle to really find its core strength and run on it. This is a game that feels like a lot of great ideas (story, visuals, sound), but doesn’t manage to bring those into new and engaging gameplay.

Creaky controls kill this creepy, creative game.

Common Sense Media
21 March 2006
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a creative platform game with a morbid sense of humor. The game is dark in the same vein as Tim Burton's Beetlejuice or Corpse Bride .

  • Excerpt: The answer is complicated. Death Jr. (Or DJ as his mother and friends call him) , has his moments but in all is a bit lackluster. However, if you’re looking for an average platformer for your PSP, don’t miss out on this.
