Hola gringos! What's spicy-hot, highly destructive and whiffs slightly of tequila? Nope, not your uncle after a night down at the local Mexican cantina - it's gangster fighting time with Chilli Con Carnage!

Think From Dusk Till Dawn without the vampires. This PSP title sets you off on a rampage across the seedy underbelly of the Mexican underworld in an extravaganza of gunplay and sombreros.

Things kick off with unlikely hero Ramiro Cruz dropping by his Pappy's office to drop off a birthday present. It seems like an innocuous enough start. Things take a bit of a turn for the worse, however, when a combine harvester ploughs through the office wall, turning Ram's dad into finely ground mince in the process. As you might expect, Ram isn't best pleased. It's your job to guide him on a blood-splattered quest for vengeance across Los Toros.

The meat of the game is in the single-player 'El Gringo Loco' mode. You'll work your way through the levels, shooting up bad guys with an increasingly powerful arsenal. It's not just about getting from start to finish as quickly as possible, however. Kill your enemies with a modicum of style and the more points you'll rack up.

Also on offer are two multiplayer modes: Hangman and Fiesta. The objective is the same on both: get as many points as is humanly possible. Fiesta makes use of the PSP's wireless functionality so you can work through the same level simultaneously, while Hangman allows two players to use the same console.
