Fifteen years later, the video gaming industry has seen a lot of technical advancements in graphics, processor speed, memory, physics and other aspects. Games have made great strides towards realism, but Lemmings
was not really attempting to be realistic
- it was only trying to be fun
This May, Lemmings is coming out for the PSP. Based on my hands-on look at the PSP Lemmings demo, it's going to be just as fun as when it first came out, with the same cartoony look of the original, but with a richer animated 3D environment. In the normal view, the lemmings are a bit small, but there is a zoomed-in view that lets you get a little closer peek at the action. Be careful, though - when you concentrate on one small part of the level, lemmings could be wreaking havoc elsewhere; when you hear their little screams, it may be too late!
