Top 10 PSP All-Time Best Games

10. Killzone Liberation

Killzone: Liberation is not only one of the most polished and graphically impressive titles on the PSP but could make a strong case for the finest entry in the acclaimed Killzone series. With a top-down isometric view that encourages thoughtful, tactical play, the game blurs the line between action shooter and strategy as you slowly and carefully execute your enemies with a huge assortment of tech and skills.

9. Little Big Planet

A game that truly needs no introduction, the beautifully charming Little Big Planet’s loveable Sackboy’s PSP outing is just as wonderful as his adventures on home consoles. With 23 main levels and 14 mini-levels, the game is packed with content! Pair that with the user-generated content and customisation creates endless opportunities for creativity. Titles like Little Big Planet remind us why we love gaming so much.

8. Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

This immersive prequel to Grand Theft Auto III puts players in the shoes of Toni Cipriani as he rises through the ranks of the Leone crime family in Liberty City. Pushing the PSP’s tech to its limit, the vast open world action of the series translates remarkably well to handheld and plays incredibly. Exploring the Liberty City of old is a nostalgic treat for gamers and the ability to do it on the PSP is a real treat.

7. LocoRoco 2

Japan Studio’s beautiful platform puzzler is one of the most innovative, simplistic and downright gorgeous games available on the PSP. As you control the planet of the game itself, tilting the world manoeuvres the LocoRoco as you roll, bump and squish your way through each level. This charming game may seem easy on the surface but takes a while to master, and there’s nothing more rewarding than a perfect run through a level.

6. Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions

This deep and complex tactical title updates the original PlayStation’s title with new characters, jobs and mechanics. Totally unkind to beginners, this is a challenging game that rewards players’ patience and willingness to learn – and once you’ve got the hang of it and perfected your strategies on the battlefield, you’ll find it to be one of the most addictive titles on the PSP. A truly thrilling title that will frustrate and delight in equal measure.

5. TEKKEN: Dark Resurrection

With more than 30 customisable characters and a huge choice of game modes and stages, Tekken: Dark Resurrection allows players to do battle wherever they are thanks to the PSP. With the stunning visuals and visceral battles that fans of the series have come to know and love, Dark Resurrection runs at full 60 FPS during matches and looks truly beautiful in motion. A real treat for fans of the series.

4. Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

This surprisingly effective entry in the Kingdom Hearts series doesn’t let the smaller scale of the PSP’s abilities keep it from hitting the same ambitious highs the series is known for. Packed with fast and fluid enemy encounters thanks to an overhauled battle system and the usual innovative mix of Square Enix and Disney characters and worlds, this wonderful RPG prequel offers a stunning introduction to the acclaimed series.

3. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

In this thrilling 1970s-set adventure, players control the iconic Snake through a staggering 30-hour campaign filled with stealth, mystery and intrigue. The game combines all the best bits of previous Metal Gear Solid titles into one definitive title that looks and plays beautifully and certainly could change anyone’s mind who thought the PSP couldn’t match the performance of home consoles when immersing gamers into richly detailed games. 

2. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

With a different presentation to previous games in the series, Chinatown Wars presented a new Grand Theft Auto experience for players. With a traditional top-down perspective and comic book-like aesthetic thanks to cel-shading, the game looks beautiful – and plays pretty damn great too. Filled with the usual carnage one can expect from a GTA title, Chinatown Wars is a remarkable entry in the series that feels unique and fresh even today.

1. God of War: Ghost of Sparta

This slickly designed and incredibly executed entry in the God of War franchise showed what the PSP was capable of with an ancient world to explore full of challenging puzzles and thrilling combat. With huge bosses to defeat, hordes of enemies and polished combat systems, Ghost of Sparta is an essential entry in the acclaimed game series and without a doubt the PSP console’s finest hour. A masterpiece of handheld gaming.
