Okay, here's the premise for Dead Head Fred: You're dead, you have no head, and your name is Fred. Clever, ain't it?
Well, to be fair, we'd have to expand a little bit. I would also be a little skeptical about a title on the PSP that wasn?t a PS2 port or a tired iteration of a franchise, personally. But, that's the thing about original titles: Originality. And Dead Head Fred by Vicious Cycle is about as original as they get. Part exploration, part puzzler, part platformer, part brawler, and one of the most charming games on the PSP to date.
Oh, and the main character, Fred Neuman? Voiced by John C. Freakin? McGinley, who you may better know as television?s other lovably cynical medical practitioner, Dr. Cox of Scrubs fame, which, by its own merit, should compel you to go out and buy this game. But! On to the review.
