This is a dull BMX game, ruined by a fiddly control system and bad collision detection. Its got tricks, races and large, free-roaming environments, but its just so flaky. Its a shame, as the presentation is decent enough, with some nice looking menus, and there arent exactly loads of BMX games out there. But with Tony Hawk already doing a decent job on PSP, why would anyone go for this more awkward two-wheeled
Okay, were just going to lay it out for you: Daxter is an awesome game. And the thing that makes Daxter so awesome, the thing that sets it apart from other, similar PSP games, is that it succeeds in capturing much of what made the Jak games so great while simultaneously being perfectly tailored for the PSP.
The Jak games have always had great characters coupled with tried-and-true platform-hopping gameplay (and a few weapons thrown in for good measure). Daxter has all of these things, but -

Nobody is going to want to swap heads with Fred, so fans of gore and macabre humour will be happy to know, our Fred is content to steal heads by yanking them off the shoulders of enemies. There are eight different craniums which you can switch between at will, each granting unique abilities once worn to better deal with certain enemy types, objects and solve puzzles.
For instance, the default jar head allows Fred to charge up a special meter and turn invisible for a short amount
That’s not how a woman’s breasts are supposed to move. That was our first thought upon loading Dead or Alive: Paradise. They don’t so much bounce as fight hard to get away from each other like two angry badgers in a sack.
You know that game where you run around and hit things repeatedly? It's the same one with floating platforms, simple combos and a camera that almost gets it - ringing any bells yet? Oh wait, that's practically every third-person run-and-jump game made in the last eight or nine years, and even though it's a marked improvement over the original, Death Jr. 2: Root of Evil still falls squarely in the "pretty OK" department.
Problems with the last game, like a crap camera and total lack of a
First, the bad news: if you're looking for the same immersive plot that helped make rapper-filled smackfest Def Jam: Fight for NY compelling, you won't find it in Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover. Not only is The Takeover a side story (or maybe a prequel - it's unclear) to Fight for NY, but the narrative unfolds exclusively through text messages and old-style static cutscenes. And it doesn't really go anywhere interesting until near the end.
So forget the story. The story is stupid,
To quote a very good movie about a group of very bad men named after colors, waitressing "is the number one occupation for female non-college graduates in this country." So, back in 2004, a casual games developer created a clicky, dot-to-dot waitressing game called Diner Dash. Finally, an entire legion of double-X-chromosomed potential customers could feel like they were slogging though a double shift at work even when they were actually at home “relaxing” at their computer.
We are addicted to leveling-up. We love boosting stats, learning new skills, and watching our characters grow from wimpy weaklings to powerhouses that can unleash 9,999 points of damage with a single move. And when it comes to satisfying our urge to grind our way towards a god-like state of greatness, the Disgaea series has always delivered.
The Disgaea series has spawned three major titles, along with a slew of spin-off games, since its first appearance on the PS2. Seven years later, Nippon Ichi has expanded this quirky series with their new action-novel adventure, Disgaea Infinite...

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions hitting the PSP was sweet enough, but Disgaea too? That's just insane. Both are 100-hour epics that require tons of down time to play and pages of rules to memorize, yet manage to be two of the most addicting, rewarding experiences on the system. But what sets Disgaea apart from the inescapable shadow of Final Fantasy? One word: charm.
Unlike the heavy-handed plot and melodramatic storyline of Tactics, Disgaea is all about having a good
