that might have happened to you earlier, but i've managed to finish TRL on my PSP :)
i've bought Legend for the PSP a year ago, but only played it when travelling.

i think the PSP version is quite good generally, but what annoyed me were the really bad controls.
especially when the controls conflict with an animation.
that was most noticable when shooting "excalibur bolts" at Fluffy and then trying to move quickly
in the "Bolivia redux" level. Beating Fluffy was a really hard piece of work ;)

Do you have encountered similar difficulties ?

I like it!
I like the multiplayer mode too.
The only things I think they could have improved were the framerate and controls. But if you put the UMD cache off then the framerate will be a little better.

what do you have to do in multiplayer mode, competing against another Lara ?

Good hint with the cache. i will try that.

Yep its an exclusive feature!

I ll explain what it is exactly.Its like a cars race.There are 2 laras in a small level like 3 mins long and they have to jump ledges etc to get to the end.The first who gets there wins the race.

Many people think that the controls suck but i really find them really good!For me the only negative is that sometimes the framerate drops!

I never got round to completing it on PSP, the controls were too small and my analog stick was actually broken, if you pull it down and release lara continue to walk in that direction!

So yea I hate it.

when my analog stick broke, I just replaced it with a thumbtack :) there should be a small hole where the analog stick used to be, don't worry, the thumbtack won't hurt the console.

There is a program that you can take pictures in game but it only works for hacked psps.The pics are saved in the memory stick and then i transfer them on pc

I cant remember the programs name right now...I used it about a year ago

Search taking pictures on psp or sth in google
