Guerilla War (PSP Minis) Reviewed by Cyril Lachel on . The game's five levels aren't diverse enough, leading to a lot of forest fights. This makes sense given that this is supposed to be 1950s Cuba, but the developers never took full advantage of the unique history lesson. Still, Guerrilla War isn't a bad game, especially for $2.99.

Guerrilla War is a lot like Ikari Warrior, only this time you take control of ... Che Guevara? And is that Fidel Castro as the second player? Okay, so this PSP Minis port is based on the localized American version, but when the game was released in Japan it took direct aim at the 1950s battle in Batista-controlled Cuba. While I'll admit that this makes for a cool story, it doesn't improve what is an otherwise unspectacular war-based shooter. This is the type of game that exists for no other reason than to suck tokens from your pocket, which means that you'll have to put up with countless cheap deaths that were created on purpose. It may be easier than Ikari Warriors, but that doesn't mean it plays fair.

This is a visually appealing game, even a quarter century later. The characters are large and the backgrounds are full of detail. While I didn't mind using the shoulder buttons for Ikari Warriors, I was less impressed with the rotation in Guerrilla War. The level designs are too narrow to take full advantage of the rotating shots. What's more, the game's five levels aren't diverse enough, leading to a lot of forest fights. This makes sense given that this is supposed to be 1950s Cuba, but the developers never took full advantage of the unique history lesson. Still, Guerrilla War isn't a bad game, especially for $2.99. It's fun in short bursts and is looks good on the PSP's screen.
