Summary: Alright! Who thought this was a good idea?! Okay...before I go crazy, I just wanna say that I absolutely love Michael Jackson's songs (To the point where I feel shame in becoming a fan only after his death), and I have the DS version of Michael Jackson: The Experience. I thought that version was pretty good, but would've used improvement. But THIS version on the PSP....is a total disgrace.
Summary: I don't for the life of me, understand the objectivity of this game.... To play You basically spend your time watching the bottom of the screen to see when to press the arrow and circle buttons while the cartoonish Michael dances. But wait, don't try to watch him dance or you'll miss which button you're suppose to be pressing.... WTH? After a minute or so then you get to watch him dance for a hot second.... I enjoyed the songs tho'.
Summary: The game has two modes, the tour mode, which you play the actual game, and the gallery mode, which you view the items you unlock by completing songs. The collector's item system doesn't do anything besides letting you view the picture of the item along with a short description, which they would allow you to customize the animated MJ with the items you have unlocked. I beat the game in every difficulty in two days.
It seems the PSP version of this game is a cobbled-together afterthought

Summary: In the west, the PSP gets a raw deal from developers. None seems to be willing to give the time and resources to their PSP games in the same way they do for their PS3 & 360 versions. So most PSP ports tend to be tired, repetitive, graphically lame games that have been thrown together in a short space of time.
