Summary: Based on the 1979 cult classic film, The Warriors for PSP, developed by Rockstar Leeds in conjunction with Rockstar Toronto, expands the stylized cinematic journey of the film into a gritty, interactive experience set in 1970s New York City.
Excerpt: If you didn't see "Lucky Number Slevin" you don't know about the Kansas City Shuffle. It involves making people look one way while you go the other way. And if you're wondering how that relates to The Warriors , you have only to look at all the hype around another Rockstar title, Bully . While the rhetoric was building around the 2006 release of what some so incorrectly called a "Columbine simulator," The Warriors sneaked onto shelves.
Conclusion: show that the publisher can do other things. Sure you still walk around and beat people up, mug them, steal things, and run from the cops but the game is so fresh, fun, and different from that it warrants a second look. This was one of the better action titles I have played on the PSP and it's a very nice port to boot.
Excerpt: Telling the story of numerous gangs in New York City during the movies time period, The Warriors video game manages to provide more than a simple video game rehash of the scenes found in the movie. Instead, were pleasantly greeted with an abundance of backstory and character-building, filling in the holes and the dark areas of movie.
Summary: The Warriors remains one of the greatest 3D brawlers of all time, even though it has been shrunk down and the controls have been revamped. Those who missed out on the original console experience two years ago should definitely go and pick this game up, especially given the title's $20 price tag! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
Conclusion: The biggest factor behind The Warriors’ success has to be the retail price point of $19.99, which is as good of a price as ever for this game. Taking that into account, I could see someone arguing the point that this is a game was worthy of a full price point. With that being said, The Warriors is a great action brawler that would make any PSP owner a great bargain game.
