The RAD Pack is a Lite version of the highly popular and addictive MineCraft game for the PSP. If you’re a fan of the survival horror genre, or just like to create your own virtual reality then you’ll love this game. It’s not just fun, it’s also well made, and easy to use.
There are many versions of this mod for all the platforms. I’ve tested it on the PC and it works perfectly fine there. On the PSP it runs very well, although the audio does tend to be a little bit lacking. That’s not a big deal though, it’s nothing that can’t be worked around. This version also has a “story” to it, which, while it’s only eleven minutes long, it’s well worth your time if you ever find yourself stuck for ideas. For example, there’s a part where you need to find a way to build your cabin before you can leave, and as you complete each room you’ll learn a little bit more about the plot.
One thing I love about this game is how realistic it feels. There’s no point in trying to build your cabin with a few wooden beams, it just doesn’t work. You really feel like you’re part of the story, and even though you may think you’re simply following a text description, there’s a lot of effort that goes into making a top quality game like this.
One thing I’d like to point out, especially if you’re a big fan of this type of things, is that this version has a limited number of levels. I found that I didn’t quite get to explore all the caves available, although I did complete the optional ones. However, if you really love this kind of things, you’ll probably want to try all the levels anyway. As said above, this Lite version has only 20 levels which aren’t really that difficult. They do make you think you’re progressing, but they don’t actually provide a challenge that the full version does.
The one big issue I had with the game was the fact that I used up too much power (I’m a fast player). Although this doesn’t happen too often with the mod, it does happen once in a while and it can be frustrating. It’s easy enough to turn off the auto-play for this mode, but not easy enough to get it back again! Nonetheless, the lack of challenge is well worth it because this version does an amazing job of recreating the atmosphere of a real mine.
The only real con I can think of is that you only have a finite number of lives. However, this was fine for me since I was mainly concerned about staying out of bounds. I also ran into a couple of problems when trying to use the map and was able to fix them by restarting the game. It can be a little bit tough to find the right guide for this game, but you should be able to find one quite easily on Google or somewhere online. Overall, it’s a great way to enjoy a quality game on a laptop without draining your battery!
