3 Top PSN Games You Must Own

February 27, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

The PlayStation Network, Sony's free version the Xbox Live, does not have nearly as much content as Xbox Live's Acrade store. But, that doesn't mean to say it hasn't got it's share of awesome games, Here are three that will definitely impress.

#3: Echochrome

Puzzle games rarely offer something that isn't unique, and Echochrome follows this trend brilliantly. When playing Echochrome, prepare to be presented with a series of puzzles, which may or may not be optical illusions. So be warned!

The basic principle of the game is to navigate a small mannequin through each level and gather echoes. Each level is floating in a fathomless white space with thin lines representing paths. On the paths lie black holes, and falling through these may or may not take you to where you intended to go. As I mentioned before, the game uses optical illusions and therefore it is difficult to tell where a hole will take you, so if you fall through the floor into infinity, you lose.

The game features 52 levels, along with a map editor for you to create your own maps and share them online. This is a must have on your PS3 hard drive!

#2 Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection

Tekken has long been hailed as one of the best fighting games ever. So what happens when Sony port the PlayStation 2 game Tekken 5 to the PS3? You get a simple yet engaging Tekken fighting game in beautiful high definition.

The game offers all the modes that were found in the PS2 version, as well as an all-new online multiplayer mode and a Ghost Mode, which pits you against a series of NPC's with random ranks and abilities. The variety of such as mode as this is welcome and so is the ability to take the currency you earn from the mode to buy accessories for customizing your characters.

If your a fighting fanatic you cannot miss out on this opportunity, and if your new to the series, there is no better place than to start here and experience Tekken.

#1: WipeOut HD

Ever since the announcement of the PS3 people have wanted a new WipeOut. Fans got their wish, WipeOut HD.

Sci-fi racers are a rare breed in games and have been done to varying success. The WipeOut Series has been the outstanding franchise in the genre and this continues with WipeOut HD. Essentially, WipeOut HD is a remake of the classic PlayStation original, remade with slicker high definition graphics, and boasts both singleplayer and online multiplayer. The singleplayer mode incorporates a career system where the game speed and the AI difficulty increase with progression.

WipeOut runs at an amazing 60-frames-per-second, and is an awesome ship-racing game that is even more beautiful in motion. The sheer sense of speed the game creates makes you think you are travelling at speeds near to 500kph. Whether you have never played a WipeOut game in your life or are a veteran to the series, WipeOut will blow you away!

PSP Games: The Best

Top PSP Games

Sony was not kidding when they admitted that their platforms are experiencing a significant shortage of good games. You might say there's not much in the way of PSP games development going on right now. However, here are three of the best that still make the PSP a commendable hand held console.

Wipeout Pulse, the first of our three, is the PSP sequel to the over the top racing game Wipeout Pure. Though this follow up provides no extreme changes to the principles of Wipeout, the same intense racing style has been polished until it positively shines, and comes with online multiplayer options to boot.

The racing in Wipeout Pulse is performed in slick, futuristic vehicles moving at extreme speeds. The singleplayer campaign consists of completing tournaments and challenges in order to unlock new ships, race modes, etc. With so many races to complete, it's likely that it will take 10 to 15 hours for you to finish them all; a commendably large gaming time for a racing game.

In addition to racing tracks from past installments, there are a total of twelve new tracks. Some of these feature magnetic strips that will lead you to do such things as loop around, drive along inverted lanes, and even take you over sheer drops. This and other adjustments, such as the ability to play against seven other people locally or around the globe due to online multiplayer options, make Wipeout Pulse one of the best games the franchise has seen.

Next up we have Secret Agent Clank, a spinoff of the main Ratchet & Clank series. The story begins to unfold as Clank witnesses his partner Ratchet stealing a magnificently gargantuan gem from a museum. From then on the game takes the guise of a James Bond flick, with plenty of bizarre twists and unlikely encounters, as Clank attempts to prove Ratchet's innocence and get to the bottom of what appears to be a much larger scheme.

Over the course of the game, players take on the role of three characters: Clank, Ratchet, and Captain Qwark. Clank's levels are the main attraction, as they allow you to employ stealth and martial arts to get the job done. The neat thing about Clank's stealth mechanics is they are very forgiving and mostly optional. Ratchet's are probably the least fun overall, but they shake things up with some serious shooting action.

The game could easily take you hours upon hours to complete, and due to the challenge mode which takes you through the game against harder enemies, you will want to come back to it more than once.

Finally, there is Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, arguably the best PSP game that has ever been available period. It's also been called one of the best Japanese RPG's in years, and I'm quite inclined to agree.

The star in this Final Fantasy spin off is teenage spiky haired hero, Zack. A teenage, spiky haired protagonist in a Square-Enix game? Who would have thought, right? But Zack comes across as a very authentic character who experiences many believable developments and changes over the course of the story. It's what Square-Enix does best. Not only that, but they have pulled it all off while implementing an action-rpg combat system. Using this system, you can attack, block and evade enemy attacks, and use spells and abilities all by pressing buttons in real time.

The innovative DMW systems added to the combat is also a master stroke. Taking the form of a stylised slot reel, the DMW spins constantly throughout your fights, and aligns periodically to grant mini cut scenes empowering Zack or granting additional attacks. It is this addition that prevents the combat from being dull and repetitive, a mistake Square Enix seems to have corrected since Dirge of Cerberus.

But most of all, the world that Crisis Core presents is that of characters and environments that will move you, as great Square-Enix games are known to.  Crisis Core will resonate most strongly with those well versed in the earlier FF7 games, but is also a great standalone experience.
