PSP Review Roundup - MGS Portable Ops +, Ultimate Board Game Collection, Riviera, Off Road

Eurogamer reviews a bunch of PSP Games:

Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops +

Portable Ops +, an expansion to last year's mostly excellent game of the same name-minus-the-plus-sign, features eight hundred cut-scenes, each one over two hundred minutes long. Konami didn't want us to mention it, nor the fortnight long UMD instillation, but there it is anyway.

6/10

Ultimate Board Game Collection

"24 All-Time Classics," boasts Ultimate Board Game Collection's sleeve. "Half as good as '42 All-Time Classics' then?" I joked when Tom handed me the promo, which is drollery that probably would have been funnier if the maths was correct. Still, it's a poor choice of wording on publisher Xplosiv's part, drawing unnecessary attention to their game's limited breadth in comparison to its closest rival.

5/10

Riviera: The Promised Land

If handhelds were girls then Riviera would have a port in every girl.

Nope, that doesn't quite work. There's definitely a sweet pun in here somewhere though. Anyway, the point is that Riviera is a cute, weird little RPG that started life on Bandai's WonderSwan before being ported to the GBA in 2005 before being ported to the PSP in 2008. It's been around a bit. Nevertheless, as this is the first version of the game to appear in Europe and to enjoy a sizeable print run, there's cause for both notice and celebration.

7/10

Off Road

Forty minutes into Off Road and the PSP's battery dies. It's a coincidence rather than a game design decision, we presume, but still, it's a situation that begs the question: were we not playing this game for money, would we bother plugging the machine back in and making up the lost ground? The answer's probably no, which is probably the answer you were expecting, which will probably tell you everything you need to know about this, the handheld's only Ford-branded 4x4 off-road racing game.

5/10 (Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus, Off Road, PSP, Riviera: The Promised Land, Ultimate Board Game Collection) -
