Great PSP Game

by Zach on 7/1/2011

This is a nice PSP game. It's a pretty good game, the graphics are pretty good (PSP-wise), and the overall game play is great. The only con for me is the controls. They are a little hard, for me, to understand. But once I got used to them, the game became easier to play.
