Mini Reviews:

Splinter Cell: Essentials – Sam Fisher that fits in your pocket. Unlike the other splinter cell games this one stinks. I felt that I was fighting with the camera more then I was fighting the enemy. The story is fantastic and lead incredibly well into the Double Agent game that is coming. The ability to save at any time is something that I fell more titles for the portable system need to incorporate. The visuals are definatly in the top caliber of games for the PSP, but the game play is so lacking that it brings all the goodnees this game offers down. This might be worth a rent if you are a big Tom Clancy fan but other wise stick to the console versions.
Kingdom under Fire: Heroes – More like an expansion then a seqeul.
Prince of Persia: The two thrones – Action/adventure game. 3rd in the modern Prince games. The fluid acrobatic movements are all here, the prince is flipping and spinning all over the amazing looking scenery. Visually stunning game, Ubi has not let the franchise slide one little bit. The battling system for the game is very intuitive and repetative. You can advance through button mashing but there will be a limit, once the enemies start to work together more strategy is required.
