Today, retrogaming is becoming more and more popular. You might think that the PSP is not one of them, but it’s not! Indeed, it was released in 2004 in Japan (and 2005 here), that is to say almost 20 years ago. So whether you found it in an old box or you’re using emulation software, here is our list of the best PSP games.
1. Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7, one of the best games of the PSP
By now, the name Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7 should mean something to you. Indeed, a few days ago, it’s Reunion, the remaster of the game that is released. But if there was a remaster, it is because there is a reason. It is simple, Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7 is without question, one of the best games of the PSP, let’s not mince our words!
It must be said that for the time, the game is sublime, even more so when you know that it was released on PSP! The cinematics are also incredible and have marked a lot of players, me first. In short, if you ever want to dive into the world of Final Fantasy 7, this prequel has very strong arguments and we strongly advise you to take an interest in it.
It is beautifully written and having done it before Final Fantasy 7, I can guarantee you that it is totally understandable. Also, if you are a fan of the game, you will learn more about the origins of Cloud, the main character. This game is a good breath of nostalgia and you won’t be disappointed to give it a chance!
2. God of War : Chains of Olympus
Another license that is in the news right now is God of War. Indeed, Ragnarok, the second opus of the reboot of the series has just been released. The press is unanimous about it, despite some perfectible points, it is a game of great quality. Except that before this reboot several God of War games had appeared.
So, obviously, everyone remembers the main series of games, no worries. Except that in parallel, a special game was released, Chains of Olympus and it is one of the best PSP games! Indeed, in this new adventure, we continue to follow Kratos who decided to massacre the whole Greek pantheon as usual.
This game, it is not necessarily as beautiful as what we could have on home console. But it’s still pretty and above all, its gameplay is still very satisfying, making it one of the best games of the PSP! Again, if you are a fan of the license, this is an opus that you should not miss under any circumstances to extend the adventure!
3. GTA: Chinatown War, continue the GTA experience with one of the best PSP games
As you can see, in our list of the best PSP games, we find a lot of known licenses with a specificity. These licenses were entitled to an exclusive opus on the Sony handheld. Well, Grand Theft Auto, has not escaped the rule and it is once again one of the best games in the history of the PSP!
This opus, called Chinatown War, takes us to the well known streets of Liberty City. Except that this time, the story will focus on Chinatown, the city’s Chinatown where a real war is raging. This opus can be a bit confusing because of its top-down view, but it is actually a return to the roots for the license.
4. Little Big Planet
Before being one of the best games of the PSP, Little Big Planet is above all one of the best games of the PS3. In 2009, the game is indeed a huge success on the Sony console. It is therefore quite logical that we learn quite quickly that an adaptation of the latter will be brought to the handheld console of the brand some time later.
Except that we could have expected a silly portage. But Sony takes care of its console and wants a home console hit to become one of the best PSP games almost every time. It is once again a bet that will be successful with Little Big Planet. Indeed, the game comes to the PSP with no less than 30 new exclusive levels! Of course, you will also find a level editor to extend the adventure.
5. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, a legendary opus and one of the best PSP games!
Finally, let’s end this tour of the best PSP games with another flagship license, Monster Hunter. Indeed, the license was also entitled to its exclusive PSP title called Freedom. This title is not a cheap version of the home console version and it marked many players at the time of its release.
A huge bestiary, a pleasure to find the game that we love everywhere. The game had it all! Add to that the fact that you can play with several players, very easily, and you have the keys to the success of this game. Again, the graphics have necessarily aged a little, but for the time, it is a very nice achievement you can believe us!
