Gitaroo Man (PS2)

Gitaroo Man is a surprising, welcome diversion to the as-of-lately stagnant music/rhythm genre. Fans of previous rhythm games will eat this title up like a kid in a candy store, and even casual gamers who rarely enjoy games of this nature will surely...

Monster Rancher 4 (PS2)

In short, fans of the Monster Rancher games should be satisfied with Monster Rancher 4 when it makes its way into their PS2s. The game lacks the necessary bells and whistles that contemporary gamers have come to expect from their digital entertainment...

Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat (PS2)

Once aboard her ship, the game takes on an entirely new dimension. The ship allows the player to explore, complete goals and fight some great ship battles. Once again, the combat is a little bit simplistic but does have more depth than the land...

God of War II - PS2

God of War II begins with a bang louder than a falling Kraken and does not let up for the next dozen or so hours you will spend engrossed in its mythos. Once again, David Jaffe & Co. have delivered a masterpiece of visual beauty, brutal violence and...

The Great Escape (PS2)

Overall, The Great Escape will be most enjoyed by fans of the movie. Players who like a good stealth game should consider leaving this title on the shelves and looking elsewhere. There are definitely far better examples of games in this genre.

Okami (PS2)

Does the name Amaterasu Omikami ring a bell? I am perfectly certain it doesn't, unless you are familiar with Japanese mythology. Amaterasu is the sun goddess, ruler of the High Celestial Plain and probably the most important deity in Japanese...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 (PS2)

Persona 3 is, despite that complaint, one of the best RPGs on the PS2, and in fact, on any console. It has characters you'll care about, a combat system that's easy to get into but hard to master, enough of a difficulty curve that you'll feel like...

FIFA 12 (PS2)

Sports games are inherently hard to review. Where those who don't like sports fail to understand what a new version of a release, each year, can give those of us who love the beautiful game. Whereas we'll spend hours just looking at the players in our...

Savage Skies (PS2)

Every level has 3 or more objectives but you only need to fulfill the main one to progress. It is unlikely that you will go back to previous levels to take care of the second and third objectives but if you did, it would prolong the length of the game...

God of War- PS2

Simply put, this is what the PS2 was designed for, and this is what we've been waiting for: games that literally show off the power and technology of Sony's machine. Sure, it might be one of the oldest kids on the block, but it still knows plenty of...

Rogue Galaxy (PS2)

Note: It's worth noting that this is a dual layer DVD game, so if your system has issues with those, you might want to rent the game or borrow it from a friend before buying it only to find that it won't play in your system.

FIFA 11- PS2

Many people believe that once they have played one FIFA installment they have played them all; the teams, players and stadiums may change but gameplay stays the same. Well, that may have been the case until the unleashing of FIFA 11.
