Brothers in Arms for PSP is basically a port combining elements from the first two games on the bigger consoles. First things first, the graphics are absolutely ATROCIOUS. at times, they look just as bad as an old PS 1 game. also, the controls are somewhat bizarre, and certainly take some getting used to. but after you get over the terrible graphics and unusual controls, brothers in arms plays like a dream. The AI isnt very complicated, but it does what its supposed to do, and puts up a pretty good fight. basically, if you liked brothers in arms on PC or xbox, you'll probably like it here. however, this version is DEFINITELY not going to win over any people who werent previously fans of the series. its definitely not a run and gun style game, but if youre patient and interested in WWII military strategy, then definitely give BIA a try.
Finally, a Brothers in Arms for the PSP. If you liked the old two games for the xbox or ps2 then you'll like this one. Bros in arms for the PSP brings everything back from the old games. The graphics are actually bad compared to SOCOM 1 or 2. But they aren't as bad as some other PSP games out.
The AI isn't perfect but is definatly worthy of an 8.
The gameplay is pretty good and doesn't repeat all to often. Replayability is ok at best.
Overall 8/10. This is definatly a rent, possibly a buy depending on how much you like brothers in arms.
