There is perhaps no other PSP title as innovative and quirky as Zoe Mode's Crush
, a puzzler that successfully implemented 2D and 3D gameplay like we've never seen before. And although the game never sold as well as it should have (Boo Sega's marketing department!), it has received the proper recognition
from the critics that it deserves.
To add one more accolade to the list, Playboy has chosen Crush
as one of its runners-up for 2007's most innovative game. Being included among such wonderful games as Rock Band, Portal, Super Mario Galaxy
and Assassin's Creed
is no joke ... well, maybe the joke is that Assassin's Creed
actually made the list in the first place. Nevertheless, it's great to see one of our favorite PSP titles getting a little more love.
If you still have yet to play Crush
, then shame on you. However, there's still time to rectify this gross oversight by picking it up today
and experiencing one of the most original games ever to grace a handheld.
