Pursuit Force – Extreme Justice Review (PSP)

Great FUN

Pursuit Force ?Extreme Justice, it’s been around for a while now and it’s absolutely epic.

It is a sensation!

Couple of things I would like to point out first of all: ?big BIG studios? developed it, and I can’t really think of any other game they have made. In fact I don’t think I had ever heard of them until picking up this game.
Oh and the back of the game case is wrong; I don’t mean to be pedantic or anything but It fails to mention the multiplayer mode that the game offers. Meaning that some potential customers may have put the case back down instead of going to the checkout because they were looking for something with multiplayer functions.
Now here’s a huge plus, the musical score was written by Richard Jacques, the same man who is wrote the musical score for Sonic R, Mass Effect, Headhunter: Redemption, Headhunter and The Club. The man knows how to make my ears tingle, impress, and capture the mood of the games, bringing them ?to life?, and he does this all at once.
But enough of the music lets look at the game.
Now graphics don’t make or break a game, I know, but; there not as good as I’d hoped. There certainly not bad by any means, in game graphics are actually ok, but the cinematics, fail to impress.
The game play on the other hand is immensely impressive. I’ve never played anything so well thought through. It’s either a car or a boat chase of some description, gunfight on foot or in the skies. Also it could be a combination of those things in a mission, but the way ?big BIG? have presented it, repetition doesn’t feel like it kicks in till your about 90% way through the solo campaign, then there the replay value!
There is a lot, and I mean A LOT of it. Multiplayer mode that is online, naturally. Bounty hunter mode, that collects stars to use to unlock the mass of unlock able content, including cheats. And finally a challenge mode; for some reason.
It is because of the varied missions and their layout which just makes this game so enjoyable, even though you are doing exactly the same thing as you were five minutes ago, you just don’t care; its that fun!
Leaping from car to car, ramming into other vehicles, gunning down enemies. It is a sensation!

Pursuit Force - Extreme JusticeHowever, naturally there are a few drawbacks, problems with the game, as with any game. And I start off with the atmosphere, the action packed gameplay and the tremendously good music builds this epic experience, but is let down by two small things:
Voice acting, and scriptwriting, they just aren’t on par with the rest of the game, and it really does show. Also too many corny lines, sure some for humour from time to time, but not that many.
The really painfully awful flaw in this game is to be a problem found on the Playstation Portable itself. Some missions you will be in a helicopter, mission being to snipe or gun down moving targets. Now this is all very well, but the joystick of which you move the gun crosshair with is rubbish to being with, and isn’t suited to the sensitivity on any setting, thus making an enjoyable experience to a damn right frustrating one. Almost ruins the entire experience.

But then you get past it and its all-jolly good again? until you get to the next snipe/gun helicopter mission.

The Good: Great Music, game play and replay value.
The Bad: faulty sniping controls
