Rush races for PSP

Midway returns to streets of Los Angeles with new missions, exclusive battle, and stunt modes.

Midway is set to put the pedal to the metal again this fall, as the company has revealed the first details on Rush for the PSP, the latest in its long line of California-based cruising games and the first for Sony's handheld.

Like last year's L.A. Rush, the PSP Rush will include a story mode set in a shortcut-laden City of Angels, which will feature more than 50 rides (at least 36 of them licensed), some of them downright pimped-out rides courtesy of West Coast Customs. However, Rush will also include some extras, including 30 new cruise missions, a hip-hop and rock soundtrack with new tracks from Lil' Kim and Twista, and the ability to play any cruise mission with another player by way of the PSP's Wi-Fi capabilities.

Also featured on the PSP Rush will be stunt arena and battle race modes. The latter mode will let players go head-to-head with each other in a power-up-propelled race to the finish, while the stunt arena calls upon players to launch their cars off ramps and sail through the air performing various twists and turns before (hopefully) landing on all four wheels. As in the stunt mode in the Dreamcast version of San Francisco Rush 2049, golden tokens that unlock extra content in the game will be placed amid the mayhem.

Rush for the PSP is set for release in September and has not yet been rated or priced. For more from Midway, check out GameSpot's sneak peek at the company's upcoming press event.

This Should Be Great (I Hope). I Thought L.A Rush Was Good (Unlike Anyone Else). I'm Getting This No Matter Who Says What. No Matter What Reviews It Gets. I Rely On Some Reviews And Add It To What I Think.

I know the psp is the first handheld that can do driving games well but enough with the driving games already we've had enough, get some platformers like sonic or more puzzle games anything but another driving game.

this sucks. there are too many racing games out there. They should make more first person shooting games like coded arms. That was alot of fun.

Meh.... Hopefully they'll make it better, but, honestly, I only need 3 racing games for my PSP: Ridge Racer, Wipeout and Twisted Metal. Otherwise, more racing games are crap....

The only good racing game on PSP was Burnout: Legends. I doubt this will be as good. What do u guys think?

Midway butchered the series with L.A. Rush. And the fact that they're now porting it to the PSP further confirms my belief that the series is now lost to the "Pimp My Ride" demographic.

Any addition in gameplay or different modes that gamers can use is great to me.

To everyone bashing the graphics: does the phrase "work in progress" mean anything to you? I'm certain this will turn out okay.

Racing with moon-like gravity? I'm all for that.

Another Racing game?? Ugh .. If we have to get one I'd like another "Burnout", because that was a very exciting game with excellent graphics. This looks ... weak! :p

PSP NEEDS A GOOD FPS NOT MORE $HIT RACING GAMES

I'd like another Rush game in the vain of Rush 2. We have NFS for street racing; Rush should have stayed Rush, not turned into another "me too" street racing POS. (And no, I'm not saying street racing games are bad; I like them. I'm saying LA Rush was a worthless game)

We don't need another racer. Besides, the graphics of this game looks pretty mediocre... even for the PSP.

Sweet I loved that game in the Arcades it was so much fun.I hope I will like this one for the PSP.I was turned off from the Rush when it was Rush 2055 or some number like that.I am happy to see another PSP game I will go out and get.I hope it will have online play in the end that would make it even better.I hope when you go to West coast Customs you can make your car the way you want it.It will not be that much fun if it will be made in the game by itself.If the Pictures are really from that game it looks great.But hope in the end it will look a lot better.
