Mike Jennings played the PSP entry of a popular PC game series. How does the transition from desktop to hand-held hold up? Read the review to learn of the author's opinion of this question. Naturally there will be some loss in computing power when going to the hand-held platform. But this doesn't necessarily mean the game won't be entertaining and true to the series. The development company changed from the seasoned Sierra Northwest for the PC versions to relative newcomer 3G Studios for the PSP version.
It's not bad if you're a fan of tactical shooters: those elements will appeal to you, and the slow pace will appeal to the more cerebral of gamers. It's decent looking, too, with the environments pretty and lavishly detailed. The gameplay, though, is repetitive and the slow pace of Target Liberty, coupled with stage after stage of samey situations, will only see you becoming very bored very quickly. Certainly look into it if you have a SWAT fetish, or a thing for tactical shooters, but steer clear if you're expecting action and gung-ho gunfights.
