Those who weren't gaming 10 or 15 years ago may find this surprising, but there was a time when EA was actually all about genre diversity and blazing new trails; a far cry from the big-budget, focus-tested hit factory the company is today. EA Replay is a great reminder of those glory days, featuring a good cross-section of titles that cover just about every major gaming genre back then. Sure, some of the games included aren't timeless classics, but the few real gems herein more than justify the $20 price tag.

Before we check out each of the games here, one overarching issue needs to be pointed out - all of the games on EA Replay suffer from a sort of "smearing," where fast-moving characters or vehicles streak a bit. It's a symptom of the PSP's screen. It doesn't hinder every game to the same degree, though.
