PSP:Summer and Beyond

In the final article of the Summer and Beyond series, Powerplay focuses on the PSP and the better games that will soon invade it. Read on.

Medal of Honor Heroes

EA’s Medal of Honor franchise makes its way to the PSP, featuring 3 new missions. Experience the thrill of the single-player campaign, or choose from 6 different multiplayer modes, which are complemented by 15 multiplayer maps. 32 players can play wirelessly on the same map at any one time, so … … ask your friends over! What’s more, you can unlock more than 20 classic characters for use in multiplayer. Your PSP needs some WW2 action.


From the makers of Heroes of the Pacific, comes another flight action game that you simply cannot afford to miss. The game brings more than 30 aircrafts to life in the virtual world with detailed models and with 40 weapons, you can be sure that there is going to be lots of destruction, which brings us to special effects. The ‘Impact Cam’ feature in the game ensures that you are able to see the fruits of your hard work. If you are thirsting for some flight action, nothing comes closer than this game.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

Follow-up to Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, this sequel takes you back into the dangerous world of GTA. You know it: It is time for more action!


Hot PXL signals a refreshing change from the ports that used to plague the PSP, looking amazingly funky, hip, original and creative. Hot PXL is essentially a collection of mini-games that draws inspiration from street culture and digital lifestyle, as well as the rich videogame history of Atari. Hot PXL is no mobile advertisement for the PSP graphical capability, but it introduces pure addictive gameplay that has you doing things like stage-diving at a concert and crossing busy roads.

Killzone: Liberation

(Adapted from IGN) -- The first PSP entry in the Killzone franchise. Killzone: Liberation is an intense and stealth-oriented action game played out in a top-down perspective. The story follows the conclusion of events in the first Killzone, with the battle against the Helghast still raging on. In Southern Vekta, the rules of war have been cast aside with the Helghast General, Metrac, employing brutal measures in order to seize the initiative. Returning as Jan Templar, your mission is to undertake a covert operation to save hostages captured by Metrac, whilst ISA troops continue the fight for liberty...

Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception

Can’t get enough of flight simulation games? Namco is trotting out Ace Combat X, featuring an original storyline and detailed jet models. Plan your strategies wisely and attempt to conquer the crimson skies. The game also promises the option to fine tune your jet and no, the jets are not artificial ones – they exist in real-life, so aircraft fans, here is one good game for you too. Multiplayer supports up to 4 players. Expect the norm like dogfights.

The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion (Image not available)

Oblivion has already reached the PC and Xbox 360 and is launching along with the PS3, and luckily for PSP owners, they will get to experience it too. (Adapted from IGN) -- After the mysterious and untimely death of the Emperor, the throne of Tamriel lies empty. With the Empire ready to crumble, the gates of Oblivion open and demons march upon the land - laying waste to everything in their path. To turn the tide of darkness, you must find the lost heir to the throne and unravel the sinister plot that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel.

Metal Gear Solids: Portable Ops

(Adapted from IGN) -- Big Boss returns to battle in this all-new MGS action game for the PSP system, where players control the original Snake throughout the game as well as recruit and use their own squadron of mercenaries. Big Boss awakens in prison to find that his former unit, FOX, has started a bloody revolt in South America. Set in 1970, the game acts as a missing link in the ongoing Metal Gear Solid narrative, as players learn more about returning characters such as Para-Medic, Major Zero and Sigint and also witness Big Boss' greatest tragedy -- one that sets into motion the events of later games in the series’ timeline. In addition to a full-fledged single player mode set after the events of MGS3: Snake Eater, the game's multiplayer modes let players take their custom squad online to do battle across new levels, featuring a unique "White Flag" mechanic that will allow players to fight to the death or surrender to compete again.
