this game was the worst ever (for psp) the graphics suck and its so fake you can barely punch and when you grapple since the graphics are so bad the fighters look like 1 big blob. if you like this review you must be stupid ( no offense though)
Graphics:8,Gameplay:4,Gamemodes:6, The career Mode Is So Bad I deleted it was like gm mode from smackdown vs raw 2006,Presentation:10 Its Just like what you see on tv,final thoughts: I say If You Played The Console Version Stick To That Because The Loading Times On The PSP Is Horrible Its Takes 30 seconds to load up its a waste of Time On The Go, Leave This One out Of Your PSP Collection Some PSP games are great And Some Are Not, I'm Grateful That GameFly saves Me Money On A Bad Game (:

I must say I probably would've enjoyed the PSP more than the PS3 had I bought it first. The long grind thru career on PS3 was beginning to be monotonous. This version seems easier as well.
The controls are slightly different from the PS3 version so u may find yourself throwing low kicks instead high kicks due to muscle memory.
Definitely not as much blood as in the PS3 version but the fight wounds are still there to a certain extent. The motions, movement, all play like the PS3 version. Some hiccups in the gameplay here and there though. I found that the knockout and fight stopping animations are sometimes random.
On the ground u can barely see that your hitting your opponent because it looks as if they are blocking everything. In a way that's more realistic than the PS3. A ground and pound knockout animation usually comes from nowhere.
Its really not a bad port of the original at all. Character models look good, animations are on point but it doesn't deliver full circle which is probably because of limitations on the PSP's hardware...
This is a great game to have on the go. But for me the control scheme threw me off from playing so much on the PS3. I'd have to "re-train" my hands every time to play either one so I'm giving up the PSP version for now.
