MLB 07: The Show (PS2)

Thanks to Sony's dubious track record when it comes to first-party sports games, its excellent MLB series hasn't always received the recognition it deserves. But after the outstanding MLB 06: The Show, people are taking notice of SCEA's yearly baseball...

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (PS2)

Overall the game is a fun, extremely enjoyable stealth-action game from Ubisoft. You can find it at your local gaming bargain bin and it's worth it. Pick it up and try it out. If you like stealth you'll love this.

Fahrenheit (PS2)

The first thing you notice about Fahrenheit is its substitution of ‘new game' for ‘new movie'. It's a mere indication of what is to come and the ambitious intent of its developer; to tell a story and create a game that sacrifices neither narrative or...

Fight Night: Round 2 (PS2)

Last year's Fight Night 2004 reinvigorated boxing video games, as boxing had become a sports genre that many people had written off years ago. After a sequence of mixed results in the Knockout Kings series, EA Sports' Fight Night came along and...

WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011 (PS2)

It's highly unlikely to convert the Fire Pro devotees, and the removals are sure to create a lot of disapproving moans and complaints, but if you were to erase everything that came before it from history, then there would be no denying that Smackdown...

SSX On Tour (PS2)

Though it has often found itself lumped in with Tony Hawk and the rest of his action-sports cronies, the SSX series has always been more of a racer, albeit a racer with an affinity for ridiculous airborne stunts. Last seen in 2003 with SSX 3, the...

Tony will not shoot women or children. You can try, but the game won’t let you. If you aim at a woman and go to pull the trigger, nothing happens and he says something like, "I’m no vermin," or, "I’d shoot myself before I did that." If you recall...
