EyeToy: Play 2 (PS2)

Overall, Play 2 is a vast improvement on the EyeToy formula, and an engaging diversion for a short while. A strong experience for multiple players, this would be a perfect title for families or parties, although you might find yourself bored with the...

God of War II - PS2

God of War II is another violent and highly entertaining achievement for the action adventure genre, and it's a fitting closeout to the PlayStation 2 era.

SWAT: Global Strike Team (PS2)

Global Strike Team is an entertaining title. Its campaign is long enough that you won't finish if you're renting it in one sitting. The game is literally begging for a random scenario generator. Truth be told, creating one shouldn't be too hard either....

Splashdown: Rides Gone Wild- PlayStation 2

Overall, Splashdown: Rides Gone Wild is a marked improvement over the original game in nearly every way. Except for the revamped trick system, which isn't nearly as entertaining, deep, or satisfying as we had initially hoped it would be. Nevertheless,...

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...

Hunter: The Reckoning -- Wayward [European] (PS2)

If you're interested in action, without too many adventure strings attached, Wayward is worth taking a look at, but it's also a short enough game that you could easily get by with a rental instead.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 (PS2)

Memento Mori. That Latin phrase can be translated a few different ways, but the best version goes thusly: Remember that you are mortal. Those ancient words cross the screen during Persona 3: FES's introduction cinematic, and they set a properly mature...

Gitaroo Man (PS2)

Gitaroo-Man is arguably the most original and inventive rhythm game since the advent of Dance Dance Revolution or the original Parappa the Rapper, and it's easily one of the best rhythm games for the PlayStation 2.

WWE SmackDown! Vs Raw 2007 (PS2)

Just like the big-name pay-per-view events that regularly punctuate the WWE's show schedule, Smackdown vs. RAW is back for another year. The latest entry in the long-running series picks up where last year's game left off, continuing to focus on user...

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider -- The Angel of Darkness (PS2)

I didn't buy into the grandiose hype surrounding Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness prior to its retail release, and in truth I've never been much of a Tomb Raider fan to begin with, so its many shortcomings came as no surprise to me and its many bright...

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...

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (PS2)

Early in the Xbox's life cycle, Genki released a fun little robot-combat game called Phantom Crash. It earned itself a handful of fans, but didn't quite make the splash that the developer or publisher had hoped. Three years later and on another...
