FIFA 10 (PS2)

Overall FIFA 10 plays a much more varied, fluid, and believable game of football, which easily sets a new standard in the genre. We spent a fair amount of time between matches wondering what it takes for a football game to get a 10 and we're inclined...

Project: Snowblind- PS2

Project: Snowblind started its life as a Deus Ex spin-off, with the purpose of capitalizing on that universe's rich fiction and distinct style by pairing it with a more visceral gameplay experience. Despite the fact that Project: Snowblind bears no...

WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2007 (PS2)

The Smackdown vs. Raw series has been around for more than a few years now, and like a time-worn WWE superstar, it is starting to get creaky in its old age. The core mechanics that fuel the entertaining action still set the stage for some great fights,...

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror (PS2)

The Syphon Filter franchise is a PlayStation staple, but after its debut on the original PlayStation, the series fell into a period of relative obscurity. That all changed with Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror for the PlayStation Portable. With a decent...

Real World Golf (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...

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja [European] (PS2)

The quality of the Naruto games that Namco Bandai has been cranking out over the past few years hasn't come close to matching the quantity, though last year's Naruto: Ultimate Ninja was the rare exception. The core one-on-one ninja-fighting action...

Forbidden Siren (PS2)

Siren, then, is a mixed bag, pairing a genuinely frightening horror experience with gameplay that's somewhat hit or miss. The ability to choose your missions, some more leeway with how you can deal with the shibito, and a less-deliberately-confusing...

Are you ready... are you ready to face my Undertaker?" whines Paul Bearer eerily from the set of The Funeral Parlor. Standing next to Bearer is the undead superstar, wearing his trademark Undertaker's hat and purple gloves. As you progress through this...

Madden NFL 10 (PS2)

Even so, there aren’t a lot of equations that end with a “Yes” when the question is “Should I pick up Madden 10 for the PS2?” Since it's plain to see that EA continues to Move Forward on the next-generation front at the expense of the last one, you...

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon -- Premium Edition (PS2)

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is Midway's attempt to take most of the stuff that has appeared in a Mortal Kombat game since Deadly Alliance was released back in 2002 and mash it all into one big game. It is a send-off of sorts of the current fighting style...

In spite of a few missteps, Parallel Lines is a welcome entry in the Driver series. There are still some issues that need serious work, but some existing problems were remedied, and I appreciate that. Graphically, it's the most engrossing sandbox game...

It sounds like a great idea: large-scale combat combined with fireball-spewing dragons. For the most part, it's as enjoyable as you might expect, especially if you're into dragons or hack-and-slash games. The first Drakengard had its share of problems,...
