Retro Review: Jumping Flash!

File Size: 269MB
Price: $5.99
Developed By: Exact
Published By: Sony Computer Entertainment of America
Original Release Date: November 1995

Short Review
Recommended. Although the original Jumping Flash! came out over a decade ago, it manages to feel innovative and fresh. The grainy, antiquated graphics do no harm to the fun, vibrant atmosphere of the game, filled with great music and fun character. The game is simply a blast, and one can only hope that a modern-day sequel will be made. The limited save system is annoying for gamers on the go, but those with time to kill will easily find Jumping Flash! to be the best downloadable PSone game so far.

Retro Review: Tekken 2

File Size: 534MB
Price: $5.99
Developed By: Namco
Published By: Namco
Original Release Date: September 15, 1996

Short Review
Not Recommended.
Tekken 2 unfortunately shows its age. There's a great deal of gameplay to be discovered in this treasured arcade classic, but the advances made by Tekken: Dark Resurrection are so significant that it's difficult to appreciate the technical shortcomings of Tekken 2. Gamers will have to choose if they'd rather spend $6 for a great classic game, or $40 for an even better modern one.

Retro Review: Hot Shots Golf 2

File Size: 157MB
Price: $5.99
Developed By: Clap Hanz
Published By: Sony Computer Entertainment of America
Original Release Date: February 29, 2000

Short Review
For better or for worse, the golf genre's lack of significant evolution makes Hot Shots Golf 2 an incredibly worthwhile purchase. The graphics have aged very well, and the quick load times make this $6 purchase just as worthwhile as other fully priced modern golf games.

Retro Review: Crash Bandicoot

File Size: 467MB
Price: $5.99
Developed By: Naughty Dog
Published By: Sony Computer Entertainment of America
Original Release Date: September 3, 1996

Short Review
Recommended. Crash Bandicoot, in some ways, becomes a better game on the PSP than it was on the classic console back in the day. The graphics look sharp on the small screen, and the simplistic gameplay is ideal for gamers on the go. However, expect frustration due to a confusing and outdated save system and some touchy controls.
