Chili Con Carnage is a refried port?
When I first looked at Eidos' press release for their new PSP game Chili Con Carnage, I thought to myself "cool, a new exclusive PSP action game." However, Gamespot checked the developer's track record, and I angrily shouted a four letter word: PORT! It may be an original game, but the game shares too many similarities with Deadline Games' Total Overdose. They both feature the same gameplay, same character and the same story. Both games feature the same "Spicy Moves" (pictured). So, why did Eidos decide to call this game Chili Con Carnage instead of Total Overdose? I think they know that PSP fans are sick of ports, so by cleverly retitling the game, they're trying to pull a fast one on us. While questionably juvenile sites might be fooled, it won't work on the superior PSP Fanboys, right? If you're going to give us a port, might as well make sure it's one of a good game, instead of Total Overdose, which only scored a 71 from Metacritic.

Amen; I would much rather have a EXACT port of Vagrant Story then this so called original game. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt though.
I haven't played the first game and I have like games that got low review scores (Monster Hunter Freedom?). We'll see how it turns out.

WTF?.Well its more like the 2nd part of a lousy game because in either case its the same character,theres nothing wrong with sequels except if they are sequels of crappy games.
Ok so is a Mexican killing what mexican mutants that scream "ay caramba" when you kill them,i have seen that before on those 2$ games you see inside the bargain bucket at your local computer store or office depot.
If thats the case i hope this game fails. big time.
But if its about a Mexican killing U.S Narcs that have mutant zombies Nazies as soldiers i might give it look.
