The PSP is the most powerful portable gaming device we have seen to date. It combines on the go gaming with impressive graphics and sound.

You will find all this and more in our Xbox PS3 coverage. Here, we list all the reviews and guides written by our various artists.

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite's limitless depth pairs it with extremists, gluttons for punishment and obsessive compulsives. Perfect for a teenage me, but I don't think another addictive collect em' up is what my life needs at the moment... read now

Gods Eater Burst PSP is a simple game, in the same family as the Monster Hunter franchise and with a strong emphasis on repetition, familiarity and grinding. Its tedious tempo has become a metronome for my downtime. .. read now

Metal Slug Anthology was better and harder than I remembered it. What started as a sentimental revisiting of my youth ended up complementing my efforts to find a more adult life... read now

Metal Gear Solid was a breakthrough game on the PlayStation one, but without any significant updating it suffers badly on the PSP. It's still a great game, but one for those who remember playing it first time around on the original PlayStation hardware... read now

Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess is an incredibly charming game with an equally charismatic lead protagonist, The Duke -- who is economically and effectively controlled with just the D-pad and X. .. read now

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep PSP is a colourful adventure, with elegant combat and a series of fairy tale worlds to investigate. The non-linear narrative hinted at a more complex story, which turned out to be a lot simpler than I had hoped. Still, it's an intriguing and polished roleplaying game and well worth experiencing... read now

God of War: Ghost of Sparta matches the previous games for bravado and gore but after so many outings, starts to feel a little tired. Just when the story gets going, it is submerged under the usual array of brash combat and platforming... read now

Valkyria Chronicles 3 offers larger battles, special powers and improved visuals. But it's still the unique mix of turn based and real time strategy that makes another game in the series an enticing proposition - providing they don't overdo the supernatural abilities... read now

Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero PSP is an old school platformer with some new ideas. 1000 lives and a difficulty that tries to steal them off you each and every level. It's a scary experience for those not used to losing lives every second of play... read now

Echoshift PSP stylishly manipulates time, as it quietly and efficiently makes mincemeat of our linear thought. I think of it as being about the power of persistence, and that all our activities are built on previous experience... read now

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is no distraction from the main series. It's a genuine step forward and impressive both in complexity of story and interplay with the Disney universe... read now

The strategy in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Tag Force 4 is deep and interesting, but ultimately it was too much work to master. I'll happily leave this one to existing fans of the series... read now

Manic Monkey Mayhem PSP sounds exciting frantic and fun, but isn't. It's rather shallow and lacking any real spark or vibrancy. Offering no storyline or variety in its game play, it wasn't long until it was cast aside in favour of more enjoyable pastimes. .. read now

Cycling Pro Manager 2010 PSP throws strategy and biking knowledge into the pot. It did more than enough to tickle my bike gamer itch. But if running a real Tour de France team is anything like this, maybe I should rethink some of my ambitions... read now

Persona 3, the shining light of role-play games, streamlines the experience on PSP. Its blend of social interactions and night-time dungeon crawling caught me up in the atmospheric world. The new female perspective adds a fresh social angle to the story and creates one of most involving and beautiful role play games on any system... read now

Coconut Dodge PSP keeps things vibrantly simple and creates a compulsive diversion for you and the kids. Don't ask why a crab would be collecting gems, instead just enjoy beating your previous score... read now

LocoRoco 2's perfectly flowery world is perfectly executed, but not for me. That, as I've come to realise is more interested in those games where I can dress-up, role-play and lose myself in another character's shoes... read now

Patapon 3 sticks with the mind-stretching rhythm controlled battle strategy, but takes things online for their new global multiplayer... read now

Metal Gear Peace Walker PSP takes the best aspects of the franchise, and not only provides satisfying stealth-action game play but also delivers a worthwhile story. Its understated approach made the narrative believable and grounded in some sense of realism, letting the emotional links to past Metal Gear games to provide the knockout blows... read now

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.

Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
