Gitaroo Man Lives is a virtually straight port of the excellent PS2 game Gitaroo Man, but what a port it is! Given how visually elaborate the game is, it has made a rather excellent transformation to the technically restricted PSP. This is a very odd game. You play a young kid, U-1, who is attempting to get the girl, but soon enough finds out that he is one of the last of a race of Gitaroos, and must save his planet using a guitar that shoots laser beams before it is too late! Gripped? You should be! The gameplay consists of guiding icons on-screen to shoot your laser beam, while also avoiding attacks from enemies that manage to get close to you. It's not ...

I bought this after reading a review in a PS2 magazine, and it wasn't a choice I would have normally made, given the artwork and the general look of the game from the box art. But, don't let that put you off. This is a shining gem of a game. This is basically a PSP port of the PS2 game of the same name (minus the "Lives") and it plays in the same general fashion. Point the analogue stick in the direction of the tune and hit the notes in time. There are a few extra tracks in the multiplayer, but if you have the PS2 version then don't feel any great need to rush out and buy this. That is, unless you want to play it on the move. I must say, ... Read the complete review

Gitaroo Man Lives! is a PSP port of the original PS2 game that has risen to cult status over the years. It tells the story of a boy named U-1 (a strange name, but he is never called anything otherwise), who has bully trouble. There is a girl he has a crush on named Pico, who never gives him the time of day because the bully always puts U-1 down. U-1 realizes that this is pathetic, but is too spineless to appear anything but to Pico. One day, U-1 realizes that his dog Puma can talk, and is in fact an alien that had been sent from the heavens in order to hand down the mysterious Gitaroo to him so he could combat monsters who are about to strike the town where he lives.

From the training stage, when your reluctant hero is being instructed by a talking dog and playing guitar on a tennis racquet, you know this is going to be weird, and you know it's going to be awesome. A port of the PS2 rhythm action title, it works very well on the PSP. The analogue stick is responsive and the face buttons never let you down. Prepare for some hand cramps, but it's not too bad at all. (I have big hands and it was fine!) Each stage is a one on one fight against increasingly difficult and crazy opponents. The range of music is admirable, from techno rock to operatic goth metal and perhaps my favourite, the jazzy swamp blues of Mojo ... Read the complete review
