Conclusion: This game is clearly done for a quick multiplayer session with your buddies. The single play has repetitive gameplay and you'll get bored in about two hours. I must admit that this game is no shining star, but who can pull out rabbits from the hat all the time? At least, the game is fun and that makes up for the boring gameplay and bad sound.
Excerpt: Sony's London Studio has a treat of its own to accompany the launch of the Sony PSP in Europe, and it’s a take on what has been one of the most fruitful genre cross-pollinations since Spyhunter – the vehicular combat game. Imagine living in an oil-obsessed country, ruled ruthlessly by a figure known only as the Iron Lady. Nearly impossible, isn’t it... Especially if you’re British.
Conclusion: Despite the large areas to drive around in, the game’s developers are aiming to make the game accommodating to a variety of people so that someone can hop in for a quick five minute game, or write off an afternoon with Fired Up . In terms of story, there isn’t a lot to go on, but it looks like the game is going for a fairly simple, straightforward approach where players are put in an archaic world where they have to join a group of rebels in taking down some evil empire...
Summary: A gritty vehicle-based blaster where you burn around expansive levels and blow the crap out of anything that moves, Fired Up! is dizzying, delirious fun. But not for long. Once you’ve got over the initial thrill of exploring the twisting levels and out-gunning gangs of Max Mad-style road warriors, it soon becomes apparent that there isn’t much to do after you’ve cracked the ludicrously simple challenges that drive the plot, and even discovering the hidden items in each...
Excerpt: Would you rather play a really fun game that lasted an hour, or a tedious boring title that goes for ten hours? Well, most people would rather play the title that lasts for one hour, but how about if they had paid $80 for it? And thus, this is precisely where the dilemma lies within Fired Up , Sony's latest attempt at vehicular combat for the PSP.
Excerpt: Set in a fictitious Eastern European country that's just been invaded by a neighbouring superpower ominously called the Republic, Fired Up! sees players take control of a range of weapon mounted vehicles from buggies to trucks and beyond as they fight in a resistance group headed by a mysterious Ghanaian called Addo.
Excerpt: L’histoire de Fired Up est très simple. Dans la peau d’un mystérieux Africain au sombre passé, lié aux services secrets, vous rejoignez la résistance d’un petit pays attaqué par la République, une grande puissance totalitaire. Avec ce héros, d’autres volontaires de divers pays participent à la guerre. N’espérez aucune aide : Etats-Unis comme Europe sont trop occupés à commercer avec la République pour vous prêter main-forte.
Excerpt: Fired Up é um shooter sobre rodas engraçadinho... nada mais do que isso. A SCEE apresentou mais título para a sua PSP. E mesmo sem ser um dos ícones das primeiras semanas de vida da versão europeia da portátil, não deixa de ser um joguinho com o seu charme, capaz de fornecer algumas horas de diversão pura e dura.
