Pep up your PSP with this bargain package from Ubisoft. This Action Pack is truly action packed. Here's the lowdown...

Prince of Persia: Revelations' story begins a few years after the conclusion of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, with the Prince having returned to Babylon, only to find himself hunted by a supernatural creature bent on his destruction. Don't you just hate it when that happens!?

Forced to live a life on the run, he seeks counsel from an old mystic, who explains that the Prince's actions have spawned a creature known as the Dahaka. In saving the Sultan's palace from destruction, the Prince created a rift in the Timeline. The Dahaka intends to repair this problem – by ending the Prince's life. The Prince quickly realises that there's only one way to end his troubles: journey to the birthplace island of the Sands of Time, find a way to travel into the past, and stop the Sands from being created.

Luckily, thanks to the talisman Farah gave him at the end of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the Prince still has the ability to control time. Phew! Prince of Persia: Revelations employs a free-form acrobatic fighting system, allowing the player to engage in combat with no boundaries and creating their own unique fighting style. Enemies possess a large variety of abilities: some enemies have long distance weapons or attacks, others have acrobatic attacks. Players can grab an enemy and then decide whether to throw them, finish them off or use them as a shield. Plus, a new projectile attack system also allows long range combat tactics. The game includes two different endings and 50 weapons to find and master.

Driver 76 takes the series back to two years before the action of Driver: Parallel Lines begins. It's not an easy job, driving through America's underworld, but someone has to do it. Well, 'has to' might not be the right phrase and the world might be safer if no one had bothered, but it wouldn't have been as much fun.

You'll find yourself immersed in an open 70s New York of fast cars, rad clothes and even radder hair. As well as 27 missions and six main plots, you can take on side jobs to get your hands on the all-important moolah and pimp your ride.

The game comes rammed full of multiplayer modes that make use of the PSP's wireless functionality, including Street Racing, Destruction Derby, Pink Slip Racing and Swap Meet.

In Rainbow Six Vegas, the fate of the free world once more teeters on the brink, and it's up to you and your team to make your way through neon decadence and tipsy tourists to make things safe for freedom, democracy and Mom's good ol' apple pie. You'll need to defend well-known locations such as Fremont Street and the Strip against a new level of terrorism as Vegas lies under siege.

Tactics are going to play a major part in your success as you manoeuvre a new team through a multiple path environment, with each team member having their own specialities and skills. Plenty of high-tech goodies (such as snake cams to 'tag' your enemies for your team-mates) are on offer to aid you in your planning and execution, whilst your team-mates utilise their expertise to make tactical suggestions such as hacking computers and smashing through walls.

Anyway...for a series not renowned for its graphics, Vegas looks really good. The city-scapes are nothing short of stunning, with the developer really going to town using the next-generation specs for realistic backdrops and gorgeous lighting. Similarly, the level design on offer is superb, with nice little details like slot machines raining out quarters and blood effects, well, to die for.
