Destroy All Humans! (PS2)

The combination of frustrating mission mechanics and limited replay value leads me to strongly suggest renting Destroy All Humans before buying, if at all, regardless of your love for bad sci-fi. The chance to probe and incinerate the Cleavers isn't...

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider -- Legend (PS2)

If I had to pick one problem with Tomb Raider: Legend, it'd be the length. It feels way too short and the main quest can easily be beaten over the course of a couple days of hard play, or perhaps a weekend. This is something of a problem nowadays, when...

Steambot Chronicles (PS2)

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...

FIFA 09 (PS2)

Fitbah' as they say, is a game of two halves. Virtual games are no exception, the standard halves are those who PES and them that FIFA. Up until the last few years, everything was clearly in PES's favour. But socks have been a-raising recently, and as...

Frequency - PlayStation 2

Remix modes allow the player to create their own music, and served to remind me how horribly tone-def I really am. I didn't enjoy this mode much but I appreciate that it exists and am sure that it will find fans. You are able to save your remixes and...

FlatOut (PS2)

It would've been nice to see more cars, deeper customization, or tighter controls, but FlatOut gets the job done. It's solid with friends, but falls pretty short for solo fun. It's facing some tough competition, particularly from Burnout 3: Takedown,...

ModNation Racers

Despite glaring load time issues, ModNation Racers has surpassed Mario Kart to become the definitive kart-racing games, thanks to deep customization and near-infinite replay value.

Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters- PSP

As far as brining the PSP game to the home console, it works out fairly well. Completionists and fans will get to play another installment without having to shell out for a PSP just to play one game. However it is still a handheld game, and it carries...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (PS2)

The goals, however, are secondary to the skating, and the skating has been further refined for this new version. There has been an addition of a significant number of tricks and thankfully existing tricks have become a little more complex with the...

Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves (PS2)

Oh, raccoons- the scourge of suburbia. They'll sneak up to your house under the cover of darkness and ransack your refuse, but they are also notoriously meticulous. With these qualities, it is no surprise that Sucker Punch chose a raccoon to be the...

Virtua Fighter 4 (PS2)

I've been a long running fan of the Virtua Fighter series. I've enjoyed the stream lined fighting system over Tekken and other titles since 1993. Virtua Fighter 4 is certainly a step in the right direction for SEGA's AM2 division.

Final Fantasy X- PS2

The game is the benchmark for RPG's to come. Square's unique story telling ability and their magic to completely immerse us into a world of fantasy and awe gives this game the power to bring a grown man to tears and a crazed gamer to fall in love.

Burnout Dominator

The lack of online play hurts Dominator's replay value, while the weird and sometimes game-crushing glitches and programming mistakes make me wonder just how much effort was put into this game in the first place. For $50, players deserve more than a...

Grand Theft Auto 3 (PS2)

The story line helps to create links between the different gangs and you will soon find yourself a hated enemy or an adored ally to many of the city gangs. This is carried over from GTA II but I enjoy the implementation much more in GTA III. Overall,...

Also added in the Bloody Palace Mode, which is akin to a survival mode. You face a certain number of enemies per floor and then can advance 1, 10 or 100 floors until the end. It is a fun endurance challenge and a great way to collect red orbs for...
