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...

Amplitude [European] (PS2)

When it comes to sequels, there are certain things you expect. You want improved gameplay, but nothing drastically different from the original. The graphics should, of course, be cranked up at least a notch or two. Basically, you want more of what you...

Hot Shots Golf 3 (PS2)

In the heyday of the original PlayStation, Sony's Hot Shots Golf series was the undisputed king of golf games, and with good reason. It presented golf in a fresh, off-kilter fashion without compromising the gameplay, which was also quite commendable....

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria - PlayStation 2

You might not remember the original Valkyrie Profile, a fairly obscure but well-liked role-playing game for the PlayStation, which was recently ported to the PSP as Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth. The game defied a lot of the conventions of Japanese RPGs,...

Scarface: The World is Yours (PS2)

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...

Area 51 (PS2)

On the downside, though, you can't call Area 51 an original game by any means. I spotted similarities to Halo, Doom 3, and a spot of Resident Evil within the first twenty minutes of the game. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as Area 51 is a strong...

PES 2012 (PS2)

The PES franchise has suffered somewhat of an identity crisis in recent times. For many years, it was the geeky kid at the back of class that got A's, in contrast to FIFA's thick-as-pigshit but vastly popular king of the playground.
