Excerpt: OVERVIEW Miami Vice started as a police drama way back in the 1980s, starring Don Johnson as Sonny Crocket and Philip Michael Thomas as Ricardo Tubbs. It was the days of hot pink and lime green, of neon and fast cars. Fortunately, the PSP game follows the more modern Miami Vice scenario of the recent feature film, with Crocket and Tubbs infiltrating the seedy underworld of organized crime, weapons trade and drug trafficking.
Conclusion: Tell me about a film that has a silver Ferrari and tons of beautiful women in it. Tell me about the eighties and Don Johnson. Tell me about the vice division of the Miami Police Department. I'll tell you that we have an OK game, but there's one thing that bothers me: you can't shoot while running. Aside from that, there are few bugs and repetitive sound issues that leave a sour taste, but that doesn't take the cool feeling of detective action away.
Conclusion: It's certainly not a perfect game, and barely uses the license at all (which is probably a good thing), but for a portable shooter, something the PSP sorely needs, it works beautifully. If only those rough spots weren't so rough.
Conclusion: Second only to Syphon Filter in the handheld action stakes, Miami Vice really is a most pleasant surprise. Attractive, enjoyable, with a raft of extras, this is just what a movie licence should be. Far more than we were expecting.
Conclusion: Graphically the game is pretty solid, with nicely detailed environments and locations, and the two main characters are easily recognizable. Animations are decent too, even down to how they hold their guns and lean around corners. It’s just a shame the blurry and laggy PSP screen hides much of the detail. The games music is good though, with some well-selected tracks which change depending on what you’re doing in the game.
Pros: Plays well, with the exception of the camera, Slick presentation, Quick loading
Cons: Lack of camera control is a problem at times, Would have played better on PlayStation2, The missions don’t have that much variation
Excerpt: Let’s get straight to the point: this is a surprisingly good game. It should not be a good game, but it is… Think about it; this is a title based on a movie and we all know that’s not a good start. Not only is it game based on a movie, but it’s a game based on a movie that is a remake of a TV show. If that’s not bad enough it is a third person action title on a PSP and as we know from recently released titles that is also never a good thing.
Excerpt: Skudene flyver om ørene på mig. De mange skud fortæller mig at der mindst må være tre slemme fyre oppe foran, der ønsker mit hoved på et sølvfad. Det får de ikke. De får heller ikke fingrene i alt det hash, der fylder i mine lommer. Jeg rejser mig hurtigt og gør med præcise skud det af med to af skurkene. Imens jeg hurtigt dukker mig igen, tæller jeg nøje de høje brag. Efter syv rejser jeg mig igen og ender livet for staklen, der står og lader sin pistol.
Pros: : Det glimrende gameplay med afvekslende elementer., : Jamie Foxx og Colin Farrell som stemmerne til vores helte,
Cons: : Over den kedelige grafik og yderst monotone stemmeskuespil.
