16/04/2009 : En 2006, From Software nous avait involontairement bien fait marrer avec son dépressif Tenchu : Time of The Assassins. Deux ans plus tard, revoici le tueur de l'ombre qui profite de l'épisode Wii pour s'octroyer le droit de revenir sur PSP à l'aide d'une "adaptation" bien sentie... Bien sentie ? Oui, enfin, plus ou moins. Test de Tenchu Shadow Assassins sur PlayStation Portable, chez JeuxVidéo.com.

16/04/2009 : Après une première tentative avortée, Activision tente tant bien que mal de faire avaler aux possesseurs PSP un Monster Jam potentiellement indigeste. Très largement inspirée du contenu de son aînée, cette version fait tout autant office de réédition que de véritable suite bien qu'il s'agisse du premier volet PSP. Reste à savoir si les retouches et corrections apportées suffiront à nous charmer... Test de Monster Jam : Chaos Urbain sur PlayStation Portable, chez JeuxVidéo.com.
16/04/2009 : Suite directe de Phantasy Star Universe paru fin 2006 sur consoles de salon et sur PC, Phantasy Star Portable a réalisé un véritable carton au Japon l'an passé en s'écoulant à des centaines de milliers d'exemplaires. Il faut dire que ce jeu de rôle futuriste clairement orienté action n'est pas sans évoquer la série Monster Hunter dont raffolent les Japonais. Son succès s'explique-t-il néanmoins uniquement par cette seule référence à la célèbre saga de Konami? Réponse en quelques lignes.

15/04/2009 : Just as the snow appears to be subsiding for the first time as spring training nears, it’s time for developers of baseball games to be releasing their demos for players to see what’s new for that year’s game. Sony San Diego has stepped up first with their demo for MLB 09: The Show and while the demo doesn’t really show off much of what is new, it does give us a lot of confidence that the rest of the game will definitely enhance the on-field experience. Preview de MLB 09 the Show sur PlayStation Portable, chez Gamer20.
15/04/2009 : With spring training coming up soon, it’s time for the baseball games to get ready for the upcoming start of the season. Sony looks to follow up a great outing for MLB 08: The Show last year with their new game, surprisingly called MLB 09: The Show. With some new tweaks, additions, and new features, owners of any of the three Sony systems with a hankering for some baseball should be able to find a lot to look forward to with the latest info we’ve gathered on MLB 09. Preview de MLB 09: The Show sur PlayStation Portable, chez Gamer20.
15/04/2009 : While they’re built on often tired and repetitive formats, dungeon crawlers are still exceedingly popular amongst PC gamers who do nothing but grind, and grind… and grind. Sega’s Phantasy Star is one of the few series still around that has that as the basis, and since it reached its pinnacle by going massively online with the Dreamcast, it’s been a fan favorite. Now the game is available on the PSP, but without an online option, it’s hard to judge the game as anything but bare. Test de Phantasy Star Portable sur PlayStation Portable, chez Gamer20.
15/04/2009 : The team at Sony Bend is back with another PSP game to try once more to prove that shooters can be done well on the PSP, this time with a faster-paced game in the Resistance series. Resistance: Retribution attempts to link Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2 with a new hero, a new gameplay style, and a smaller screen.

15/04/2009 : With opening day still about a month away, it’s that exciting time when the baseball games are out to give us our baseball fix before the real action starts in a few weeks. Sony’s MLB 09: The Show continues to build upon a great foundation with this year’s entry with tweaks to Road to the Show and other areas of the game. Is it enough for MLB 09 to top its predecessor?

15/04/2009 : Revealed during a Square Enix Party in 2007 alongside Star Ocean: First Departure, which was just released a little more than a month ago, Star Ocean: Second Evolution was a remake that fans have long been waiting for. Originally titled The Second Story, the game was the first actual Star Ocean game to be released in the United States, and it’s widely considered to be a PlayStation classic. Yoshinori Yamagishi, producer of the series, stated that he wants the remakes to feel as though they are completely new games. While both games do essentially feel new, does it actually make Second Evolution worth a purchase? Test de Star Ocean : Second Evolution sur PlayStation Portable, chez Gamer20.
12/04/2009 : You may not have heard of international game developer Ivolgamus, this is because they tend to specialize in niche titles with unique gameplay. Puzzle-platformer Fading Shadows certainly falls into this category. Exclusive to the PSP it promised to offer a riveting and immersive storyline, action-packed gameplay and stunning graphics – but sadly, as you know not all promises can be kept.

12/04/2009 : Football Manager Handheld is, if you will excuse the pun, a funny old game. On the surface it looks and feels very much like it’s bigger PC cousin. However after only a few minutes with it you soon start to realise that this is very much a cut-down version and actually has more in common with the old Championship Manager games of yesteryear, rather than Football Manager as we know it.

12/04/2009 : The Greek mythos is one that is so expansive that trying to capture its essence is no easy task. However, a few years ago SCE’s Santa Monica team managed to capture a piece of that essence in God of War for the Playstation 2.This time around, Ready at Dawn, the same studio that put Daxter into his own successful game on the PSP, takes Kratos’ story and puts it into a portable portion as a prequel to the PS2 hit. Keeping with the formula established by its console-based forerunners, Chains of Olympus is a spectacular accomplishment for handheld gaming.

12/04/2009 : There was once a time when great mystery surrounded Final Fantasy II. Its English release was abandoned quite abruptly, despite the translation allegedly reaching an advanced beta stage, largely due to the upcoming launch of the SNES, and the apparent age of the NES. After Final Fantasy VII took the world by storm, an English version of Final Fantasy II was finally released as part of Final Fantasy Origins for the PlayStation, then again as part of Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls for the Game Boy Advance.

12/04/2009 : Think back to what you were doing 20 years ago. Some of us were young children, playing outside gleefully, ignorant of the world-at-large, some were yet to be born, but a few others were playing a little game called Final Fantasy on the NES. It’s been two decades since the release of Hironbu Sakaguchi’s RPG – aptly titled at the time as it was believed it would be Square’s last game. In celebration of the milestone, Square Enix has released special anniversary editions of Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II for the PSP.

12/04/2009 : Patapon is an example of that rare beast in the videogame industry nowadays; a genuinely innovative and charmingly designed title that simply defies categorisation on many levels. It's an experimentation in control and design that could easily have fallen flat at the first hurdle, and yet somehow manages to break down any preconceptions that you may have about fitting a specific control scheme to any particular genre. It also serves as a hearty lesson in how to go about making an emotional connection with the end user, without defaulting to the stoic concepts of photorealism and gigabytes of spoken dialogue. It's a rhythm-action, real-time strategy title at heart, with some incredibly deep RPG elements included in the mix. Whilst that may sound like needless complexity, it works out as quite the opposite in practice. Test de Patapon sur PlayStation Portable, chez Strategy Informer.
12/04/2009 : Dragoneer's Aria is a Nippon-produced RPG for the PSP that's seen a Japanese and North American release – but has so far failed to land on European shores, meaning that dedicated fans of the genre will have to import the game if they relish the chance of taking on mythical beasts from across the Pacific. Is it worth it though? Test de Dragoneer 's Aria sur PlayStation Portable, chez Strategy Informer.
12/04/2009 : The Medal of Honor series – yes, without the U, I suppose – has become a byword for World War 2-related action, with the first-person franchise appearing on every major machine since it's PlayStation début in 1999. There's been a version of the game on PC, Xbox, 360, every PlayStation, GBA, Gamecube – and now there's the 'Heroes' spin-off that shares the PSP and, hilariously, Nintendo's underpowered Wii. The pedigree is there, though, but the question remains – does the latest handheld title storm the Nazi stronghold or fall at the first charge?
