Excerpt: The first thing that comes to mind when you see Hustle Kings on the PlayStation Store is: Why? Isn’t it commercial suicide to sell a pool game on a platform that comes with one free? It’s akin to selling water to a fish. Fortunately for VooFoo Studios, Hustle Kings is far better than pool in Home even before you’ve gotten to the main menu. Unlike Home, it’s in full HD.
Excerpt: Zombies. You gotta hate them. All that shuffling around and groaning. And just what is it with the whole brain-eating fascination anyway? They also have a tendency to show up uninvited and unannounced and make a tremendous mess of things like they’re the ex-girlfriends of the underworld or something. Now they’ve popped up in New York City, just as the good people of Gotham are getting ready to celebrate Christmas.
Excerpt: Clearly, the game's designers are fans of the campy zombie genre, as the premise and tone reflect the upbeat influences of George A. Romero rather than the serious and horrific tones set by filmmakers such as Clive Barker and John Carpenter (who inspired the Resident Evil series, no doubt). The game kicks off with a cinematic involving the Christmas tree lighting ceremony at New York City's Rockefeller Center.
Conclusion: The PSP needed another good action game, and hooboy is this it. Pure visceral thrills from start to finish, just a touch of strategy and online play that actually lets you play against others all over the world. THIS is the kind of game the PSP can offer.
Excerpt: Planet Moon Studios, the Scottish development squad credible for Citizen Kabuto and Armed & Dangerous, has another quirky title ready for gamers looking for something different in their action games. Infected, one of the most recent PSP releases, is a solid action title that is fast-paced and serves as a quick fix and a solid foundation for the PSP action/shooter genre.
