Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II (PS2)

Two years ago, Interplay and little-known developer Snowblind Studios surprised just about everyone when they delivered an action RPG to the PS2 under the banner of Black Isle's venerable Baldur's Gate series, and it was good--great, even. Striking a...

Steambot Chronicles (PS2)

It's hard to imagine a crazier name for an open-ended mech-driven adventure than "Bumpy Trot," but the good folks at Atlus normalized the title and changed it to Steambot Chronicles for domestic release. Steambot Chronicles is an interesting little...

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 (PS2)

Like its plucky eponymous hero, Ultimate Ninja 3 gets by on sheer charm. Unlike the boy ninja, its ninjutsu is weaker than watered-down ramen. No, it isn't much of a fighting game. But it's so faithful to its source material, it should nevertheless...

Real World Golf [Bundle] (PS2)

When all is said and done, Real World Golf is a novel idea. It gets players up, active and swinging like they were actually at the driving range or golf course; that's a good thing. With that said, the putting mechanics aren't up to par and the game...

Musashi: Samurai Legend- PlayStation 2

While it's good to see Musashi back on the screen again, it's unfortunate that his title is hampered by a short game experience, practically unused skills and technical glitches. Hopefully it won't take another seven years before this hero returns in...

GrimGrimoire (PS2)
