GameBiz has posted their review of Burnout Legends, giving it a score of 8.5 out of 10.
"Burnout Legends is a fine start to Criterions PSP career. They have taken the best bits of the first three Burnouts and put it in one portable, addictive package. The lack of Revenge innovations may hurt the game but it still remains one of the must have PSP games."

TVG has posted their review of FIFA 06, giving it a 6 out of 10.
"Long-standing FIFA fans (presumably you’ll have to be to gain any satisfaction from this) will no doubt enjoy the retro look back at the series, whilst Playstation2 owners benefit from the inclusion of the SEGA MegaDrive title FIFA 94 – providing some value for money on nostalgic factor alone."

Ace Gamez have posted their review of TOCA Race Driver 2, giving it a 9 out of 10.
"TOCA Race Driver 2 is a gaming masterpiece and one of the finest releases to hit the PSP thus far. Wonderful visuals, realistic sounds, a wealth of modes full of varied content, challenging and rewarding gameplay, convincing AI, multiplayer support for up to twelve players, the list goes on! The only drawback is the difficulty level, so if you're scared of a bit of hard work then this title is best left alone. However, those of you who consider yourselves real gamers should take this for a spin - if you think you're hard enough."

Strategy Informer has posted their review of Madden NFL 06, giving it an 8 out of 10.
"Madden is all we get when it comes to licensed pro football, so I was expecting more. A franchise that became so enjoyable and successful like this one will incidentally force itself under a microscope to be revered or criticized when any radical change occurs. Despite a few faults, however, Madden NFL 06 is still a fantastic game, just not as much fun to play as it has been the last few years. For those gamers who only buy Madden as their one game a year, maybe this could be your favorite installment yet, but for everyone else, 2006 feels like a stutter step or experimental addition to the franchise that has failed to outdo itself for the first time in recent memory."

Boomtown has posted their review of TOCA Race Driver 2, giving it an 8 out of 10.
"But back to the part about personality splitting. On the one hand, I’m very excited about TOCA 2 – it’s still as good as it was on my Xbox a year ago, and you won’t find a better semi-realistic racing offering on the PSP (are you calling my beloved Ridge Racer unrealistic? –Ed.). But on the other hand, there’s nothing for you here if you already own TOCA 2 – if that’s the case, you should really consider whether or not you want to buy the same game twice, or if you’d rather wait for TOCA 3."

Eurogamer has posted their review of Need For Speed Underground: Rivals, giving it a 6 out of 10.
"Strip the game of its modes, however, place it next to Ridge Racer for a one-lap test drive and it soon becomes clear that Namco's effort gets the fundamentals almost perfectly right, while Rivals just doesn't feel as comfortable or as satisfying. Even WipEout Pure, an entirely different game at heart, gets those basics down better. For the record, I still can't drive real cars. I never sat behind the wheel of a car again (cough except for that one time in America cough) and my father never spoke to me about further lessons after that initial attempt. Still, when it comes to the PSP, I know exactly what route I'd prefer to take: I'll stick to the ridges, and leave the underground to its fans."

Worthplaying has posted some screenshots of World Poker Tour.
"World Poker Tour will bring gamers the most exciting poker experience anywhere. Featuring the colorful commentary of Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten, the World Poker Tour video game also features the most elite poker professionals including Antonio "The Magician” Esfandiari, Erick Lundgren, Evenlyn Ng, Lyle Berman, Michael "the Grinder" Mizrachi, and Phil "Unabomber" Laak."

Armchair Empire has posted their review of Burnout Revenge, giving it a score of 9.4 out of 10.
"Stalwart fans may dislike the changes, and while it does make the game a bit easier, I'd venture to say that it still makes the game more exciting. With its extensive list of events and near unlimited replay value, Burnout Revenge still maintains the visceral carnage that fans (and angered commuters) everywhere have come to expect."

TeamXbox has posted their hands on preview of Tony Hawk's American Wasteland.
"Rebelling from their back country upbringing, players will take control of their character, who can be customized throughout the game, as they meet up with a street-smart skater-chic named Mindy who the notices a newbie headed for trouble without any direction in the big city."

GameDaily has posted their preview of Tony Hawk's American Wasteland.
"Considering my limited play time with this game, it's difficult to really get a grasp of what Neversoft is trying to achieve, especially with the BMX component. Whenever I encountered the bike it was just lying on the ground and once I hopped onto it there were no missions, so at this point I don't know if it's been thrown in there to be a bonus item or whether it has a serious impact on the gameplay."
