Sony Hot Shots Tennis

Fortunately, that aspect of the game, while flawed, is deep enough to keep coming back to time and time again. If you're new to the series, or on the fence about tennis games in general, a rental is probably best. Thanks to its depth and ease of use,...

Konami Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

What else is there to say? Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence took a great game and made it better, added a whole other online game to the mix plus a wealth of extras and then chopped the price nearly in half. Considering the product they started with was...

Koei Dynasty Warriors 4: Empires

That being said, it is laudable to note that this is the first significant tweak that's been made to the DW formula in some time. Throwing many of the "expansion pack" elements aside for an actual shift in gameplay, the inclusion of planning elements...

Sony Tourist Trophy

In the end, Tourist Trophy succeeds at providing a solid Gran Turismo experience with motorcycles. If you've loved that series, you'll like this. Even though I have mixed feelings about that series, I found a lot to like here. The use of bikes really...

Square Enix Star Ocean Till the end of Time

Overall though, Star Ocean, Till The End of Time is a great sequel for the franchise. An innovative battle system and plenty of secrets that can be unlocked makes Star Ocean appeal to even the largest RPG detractor. Even if you're not a fan of RPG's,...

Atlus U.S.A. Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

Overall, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is an original and refreshing take on the strategy RPG sub-genre. The near limitless play potential makes this game a godsend for obsessive, compulsive fans of this style of play, and the ocean deep gameplay ensures...

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...

Atlus U.S.A. Steambot Chronicles

Overall, Steambot Chronicles is a tremendously ambitious effort that sometimes falls under the weight of its own innovation. You've got many choices available to you throughout the game, and most of them are done well. The rhythm game sections are done...

Atlus U.S.A. Odin Sphere

All in all, Odin Sphere ends up being an unforgettable game due to its graphics and unique gameplay, but ends up being riddled with some major problems and puzzling game design issues that greatly reduce the amount of fun that can be had with it....

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...

Shadow of the Colossus (PS2)

I'll throw out this lone caveat: Shadow of the Colossus may not be for everyone, and in fact I'm sure it won't be because it won't seem to have the same action that everyone expects from titles nowadays. This is unfortunate for those gamers, because...

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...

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...

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.

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)

Silent Hill 4 is still a damned scary game, and it's one of the better survival horror titles out there because of that. It's good to see its designers taking risks and experimenting with the formula. This time, however, it's kind of a misfire. It's by...
