The Warriors is a great game on any platform, and for anyone fancying a fight. Now, you can play it while you're on the subway, hanging with The Lizzies, or chilling in the Rogues' car waiting for Luther to get off the damn phone.
This PSP version is also one of the best ports we've ever seen so far, nothing has been omitted, and there's even a Wi-Fi co-op option and a couple of new multiplayer scrapping modes to keep the violence levels at maximum. A Double Dragon for the 21st century, this underrated classic is one of the best games on PSP. Word on that, boppers.
If you have ever enjoyed a good beat-em-up, even if the last time was ten years ago, then there’s a good chance that you’ll enjoy The Warriors, and if you have a friend to play it with you then all the better. As a movie tie-in, we can say with no authority whatsoever that it’s totally authentic and sure to please fans (in all seriousness, the production values and treatment are extremely respectable). A few of the issues that beat-em-ups suffer from do sometimes rear their heads, viz. an occasionally wonky camera and slightly repetitive combat, but no more than is to be expected, and on the whole Rockstar has done a good job of keeping things on track and entertaining. Let’s be slightly blinkered to the fact that this is more of an action-adventure game and say: The best 3D scrolling beat-em-up ever. And did we mention it’s a near-perfect port with a budget price?
If you are a fan of the original movie and/or enjoy the earthy premise of fighting your way through a gauntlet of tough gangs, The Warriors is the PSP game for you. The ability to play through the story mode with a friend is enticing and is only one of many features that makes it worth the price to add to your collection. Where else can you beat up everyone around you, loot, steal car radios, mug, and graffiti complete neighborhoods with a $5 can of spray paint?

If you missed this game on the consoles, or just want to experience it on the go, it’s a no brainer. The game is available at a budget price, but don’t let that scare you. This is a full budget game crammed into the PSP and will keep you busy for at least 10 to 12 hours. That’s not counting the co-op play where you and a friend can beat up swarms of bad dudes together. Now that’s bonding.
Once again, Rockstar manages to do an amazing job porting one of their games and does so nearly flawlessly. The Warriors for the PSP is still one highly enjoyable brawler that now makes one seriously addictive portable game with a lot to offer. If you haven’t played this game on a console, do yourself a favor and pick up this portable package.
The Warriors for PlayStation Portable captures the 1979 Walter Hill movie in a near-perfect port of its 2005 PS2 and Xbox counterparts.
The Warriors could have easily become just another repetitious street brawling title, but with a strong and original storyline that merges with the film plot, great combat action mixed with tactical strategy elements, and authentic 70’s style and flavor, this is one game that will keep you knocking heads for months to come.
Just as was the case in 2005, there's a lot to like in The Warriors. The gameplay is varied, the combat is deep, and the presentational and multiplayer extras add plenty of brownie points. Of course, the biggest issue for some many be the game's extreme level of violence (expect lots of blood, swearing, and street-level combat). However, given the source material, that shouldn't be a surprise. Principals aside, the more obvious snag for PSP users is the clunkier camera and defensive controls. But even with those hurdles, The Warriors is still a highly entertaining brawler and a worthy addition to most action fans' portable library.
Though there is ultimately little appeal in the PSP version of The Warriors for those who have already played the game on other platforms, PSP owners who missed out on the original release won't find a gimped version of the game here. The few problems with this port are relatively mild, and the cheap price makes the game's hefty amount of content that much more appealing. Of course, you could just as easily go out and buy the PS2 or Xbox versions of The Warriors today for the same price, and the console versions will always be the ideal way to play this game. But if you prefer your gaming on the go, The Warriors on the PSP won't let you down.

The GTA franchise may be what Rockstar is mostly known for but games like The Warriors show that the publisher can do other things. Sure you still walk around and beat people up, mug them, steal things, and run from the cops but the game is so fresh, fun, and different from GTA that it warrants a second look. This was one of the better action titles I have played on the PSP and it's a very nice port to boot.
All-in-all, as we found with our PS2 review, The Warriors is great fun and has bucketfuls of style and Rockstar have succeeded in reinventing another genre. I scored it less than the PS2 version only because the motion blur and very dark setting don’t suit the PSP all that well, especially in the summer months, the bringer of the dreaded screen glare! But if you don’t mind a few muddled controls and the odd confusing moment you’ll find an amazing game that’s pick up and play but also hard to put down…
The Warriors has Rockstar's bravado written all over it. A top-notch experience and a clear example of the PSP's technical prowess, it successfully captures the style and machismo of the film while offering enough in-depth action for even the hardest of hardcore fighting junkies. Visuals are strong, but blurry during movement (it seems like the characters move too fast for the game to handle at times) and a brightness setting would have helped as most of the game is dark and especially hard to see in rooms with too much light. If anything, this port serves as a perfect example of the PSP's unique position as a handheld and what this under-appreciated piece of hardware is capable of.
The PSP version of The Warriors does have a few problems, but they are hardly worth worrying about when you're dealing with a game that is this much fun. There aren't a lot of games like this currently available on the PSP and the price tag (at $20) is just right. If you never had a chance to go through The Warriors on the PS2 or Xbox then this is a no-brainer, it's a rock solid action game full of exciting missions and some really cool bonus material. This game is just as much fun on the PSP as it was on any of the consoles, which is really a testament to how good this game really is.
Everything about the game is pretty much intact, which is equally impressive and counterintuitive. Impressive because The Warriors was such a good and complete game the first time around, with a lengthy story, fun brawling mechanics, and a host of that classic Rockstar optional stuff that we don't have to do but are compelled to anyway -- and it all works incredibly well on the PSP. But at the same time, The Warriors was never really designed to the strengths of a portable system, so unless you haven't played it already, there's no real need to play it again while in transit.
The Warriors is een van de betere PSP games die op dit moment op de markt verkrijgbaar zijn. Rockstar heeft alle elementen uit de consoleversie weten te behouden en, naast de soms wat vervelende camera, sommige dingen zelfs weten te verbeteren. Een perfect voorbeeld is de Ad-Hoc multiplayer mode absoluut voor enkele leuke momenten kan zorgen. Kortom, als je The Warriors nog nooit eerder op een console gespeeld hebt en je in het bezig van een PSP bent, dan is het de moeite om de aankoop van dit spel grondig te overwegen.
The Warriors sur PSP est une solide adaptation du soft sorti sur PS2 et Xbox en 2005, tout comme ce fut le cas pour GTA. La conversion sur la portable de Sony ne s'est pas faite sans concessions, mais dans l'ensemble le soft n'a pas perdu grand-chose de la rage et de la fureur de ses premiers instants. Une histoire mature solidement soutenue par un gameplay efficace et même occasionnellement brillant mais que la console peine souvent à mettre vraiment en valeur, voilà ce qui ressort de ces quelques heures passées en compagnie des membres peu fréquentables des Warriors.
Rockstar, the new/old clique in town, who are shooting up the gang network ladder, manage to cram a pretty decent game out of a movie almost 30 years it's senior, and to all the other boppers, soldiers and warchiefs out there, one thought comes to mind: Nowhere to run baby, nowhere to hide. The Warriors are going to march straight through your set and there's not a damn thing you can do about it.
The Warriors more than holds its own on its transition to the PSP. For a start, it's still a perfectly playable, charming and downright brutal game - there really is nothing quite as ludicrous on the shelves today. If you're after a handheld reinvention of all those classic side-scrolling brawlers of 15, 20 years ago, then this is the closest anyone got to recapturing that raw, mindless intensity. Definitely worth a look once the price comes down.
