There are some new set-pieces. One of our favorites sees Ram clinging to a hook as it moves through a meat factory full of guards. Hanging with one arm, you kill the goons below with your rifle in the other in a real action hero moment. You'll also find yourself riding on the backs of moving rockets, hanging from helicopters and leaping out of moving cars. It's Die Hard meets Once Upon a Time in Mexico. But not even Depp or Willis had the cojones to whip a man's hat off his head.
Chili Con Carnage is one of the best action games on PSP. But that statement doesn't carry as much weight as it should because we're comparing it to games of the like of 50 Cent: Bulletproof G-Unit Edition, Splinter Cell Essentials, Medal of Honor Heroes and so on. And if you're one of the few people out there who bought and finished Total Overdose, avoid it altogether. There really isn't enough new stuff in here to make it a worthwhile purchase. If not, though, CCC is throwaway, stupid, huge amounts of fun and you won't be able to resist its colorful charms. Just don't expect the novelty to last for more than a few hours.
