Excerpt: Lemmings is the first PSP (Playstation Portable) game that Family Friendly Gaming is reviewing. For those unfamilar with lemmings, they are an animal that are known for following each other off cliffs to their own doom. This puzzle game continue that belief (whether it is accurate or not). Certain tools are available on each level, and are essential to solving it.
Excerpt: That lovable and addictive puzzle game from years gone by is back -- now on the PSP. All of what you loved the original game for is there -- in fact, all of the original levels are included, along with a slew of new ones. However, the style of the graphics has been updated; the levels still play in a 2D manner, but the graphics are, in fact, 3D.
Excerpt: One series that seems like it has been around forever is the popular Lemmings franchise. In the past, the series has spawned multiple installments that have been released for multiple systems. The latest installment in the series was released in May of 2006 for the PlayStation Portable.

Excerpt: Lemmings is a classic puzzle game that has appeared on a number of systems over the past 15 years and is now marching onto the PSP. If you’ve never played a Lemmings game before here are the basics. Your job is to guide the Lemmings through a series of levels, getting them from the entrance to the exit. Sounds simple, right? Well complicating matters is that the levels are filled with all manners of obstacles, from simple obstructions to bottomless pits to deadly traps.
Conclusion: The sound effects and music on the other hand leave something to be desired. There are only a few sounds that play out through each level and most of them are basic in nature. Sure the music has been remixed but it just doesn’t have that vibe you'd expect. This is one game that would have benefited from user-customized soundtracks. Sadly this feature is often overlooked in PSP games.
