Dammit.

I thought it was cancelled...

Now I've met 2 people with a PSP!

elmanmasraro 06-06-2009 05:13 PM

Well, we're only missing 3 days, so...

Sorry for taking so long with the review guys, I've got the PSP version and it's pretty good. The levels are a bit odd, as they're just "sections" of levels rather than an ongoing thing, so sometimes you're just in one room for a whole stage. Also, there's no Sudan and the opening exclusive stage is just a cut-down copy of a later stage. This makes the game pretty short.

However, it does have several advantages over the main Wii version.

1. Indy and Maggie O'Malley's relationship is much better explored, with their humorous arguing the highlight of the game - something distinctly missing from A2M's version.
2. Indy has his satchel, and called the bad guys "Nazis". It can't be over-stressed how much more Indy-feeling this version is than the Wii version.
3. While there's still a lack of connecting cutscenes, Indy links the levels with narration. This is far better than the Wii version, where no explanation is given apart from some written notes on the menu screen.
4. There's no frustrating moments like the now-infamous piano level in the Wii version.

Don't worry about it, my friend. The point is you make a GOOD review, adn not a rushed one.

Oh, and thank you very much! You're the only one I've seen that has given an opinion about the PSP version! I think I'll buy this game.

The Tingler 06-16-2009 05:25 PM

If I can't get past this piano level, you might see a pretty angry review of the Wii version coming soon!!

elmanmasraro 06-16-2009 05:39 PM

Haha, many people have complained about this level. Good luck!

The Tingler 06-16-2009 05:44 PM

The problem is you have to have the patience of a saint to do it, and I just get angry and frustrated by it too quickly.

elmanmasraro 06-16-2009 11:43 PM

Hey Tingler, I just wanted to ask you something: Do you buy ALL versions of Staff of Kings just to review them or just the ones of the consoles you own? (I mean, did you buy a PSP just for SoK or you had it already?) Just curious.

The Tingler 06-17-2009 04:14 AM

Heh, if I buyed the versions for the consoles I own, I would have had to buy all of them!

Nah, I just got the Wii and PSP versions. One at home and one while travelling/at work. The Wii's the main version and the PSP looked the most different, but still with good graphics.

I have only bought a PSP this year, but it wasn't just for Staff of Kings... although I do admit I kept it in mind! :P

elmanmasraro 06-17-2009 10:00 PM

Uhh... so... when can we expect a review?...

The Tingler 06-18-2009 04:27 AM

Today hopefully! :)

elmanmasraro 06-18-2009 10:37 AM

Really? That's great:D

elmanmasraro 06-18-2009 12:20 PM

Hey, a website called Digital Chumps has released a review of the PS2 version. But beware, that review is RIGGED with spoilers of the game!

The Tingler 06-18-2009 04:11 PM

Okay, the reviews are now up! I'll set up a thread to chat about them all properly!

Darth Zavier 06-22-2009 02:57 PM

Thanks Tingler!
