Reviewed in Apps/Games that run best with Snapdragon
PPSSPP is by far the best PSP emulator I have ever used. Most games work fine and dandy with Monster Hunter and Persona running at near full speeds, especially with SnapDragon 800 and the Adreno 330 that is used by the Nexus 5, LG G2 and the Note 3. Maximizing it's performance through its settings can be done by looking up the forums which provides exceptional answers, which I got my Monster hunter to run at nearly 25~30 fps. Good job Henrik!
Play PSP games on your Android device, at high definition with extra features! PPSSPP is the best, original and only PSP* emulator for Android. It runs a lot of games, but depending on the power of your device all may not run at full speed.
No games are included with this download. Dump your own real PSP games and turn them into .ISO or .CSO files, or simply play free homebrew games, which are available online. Put those in /PSP/GAME on your SD card / USB storage.
