Almost as impressive as its projected scope is the fact that Dead Head Fred seems to finally have the PSP's infamous camera problems licked. Players can move the camera with the directional pad if they want, but for the most part it seems to follow Fred - and whatever moving objects are near him - very competently. It's also interesting that the game is devoid of life bars or other on-screen displays most of the time, instead using a color-changing light on Fred's back to show players how he's doing.
While it won't be available until next year, Dead Head Fred
was already running smoothly and looking sharp when we saw it at E3. If the developers end up achieving their ambitions, this should be one to snap up.
