Archer MacLean's Mercury PSP Review


When I was asked to review Archer MacLean's Mercury by Chris, Console Obsession's long-suffering deadline lion-tamer, two questions popped into my head. Firstly, what sort of name is Archer MacLean's Mercury for a game, and secondly, who the hell is...

Archer Maclean's Mercury


When the PlayStation Portable launched in Europe back in September 2005 the limelight was immediately grabbed by the likes of Sony's brilliant WipEout Pure and Ubisoft's excellent original puzzler Lumines. They stole the public's attention with the...

With its fun and addictive gameplay, Mercury still remains one of the best puzzle games on the PSP, and now it is certainly the best valued.

Archer Maclean's Mercury (PSP) review


Megalomaniac Marble Madness

Sure, it may not have as many different options as QB’s Lumines but it’s much more enjoyable to play, has far better pacing and has a hell of a lot more depth to it – and best of all its 100% British.

Archer Maclean's Mercury


There's not really much to the game graphically – the levels are pretty basic and do their job – it's a puzzle game, a genre not exactly known for or even requiring stunning visuals. The presentation is decent enough, and the frame rate is smooth, a...

Archer Maclean's Mercury


An interesting take on the labyrinthstyle puzzler for the PSP.

The audio does a good job in keeping your ears busy, with some mellow background tunes and decent enough sounds effects. I liked the little liquidly "bloop" noises that your mercury makes while oozing and bouncing about the stages, and the falling...

Fitting that a game featuring a smooth blob of liquid would ooze its way into your brain.
