Test Drive Unlimited (PS2)

While some content had to be cut out of this port, Test Drive Unlimited on the PlayStation 2 is a shockingly enjoyable racing game. The island is big, there are plenty of events to race, and there are more cars in this game than you will know what to...

Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel- PlayStation 2

As I said at the start of this review, I made this list of mistakes over the course of eight hours of playtime that felt like an hour, so Brotherhood of Steel is by no means a failure. It's just got some weird quirks to it that I can't understand,...

Mobile Suit Gundam: Zeonic Front (PS2)

Mobile Suit Gundam: Zeonic Front will appeal to a certain group of people. I think anyone who likes the TV series, or any other anime show for that matter, will be more forgiving of the game's shortcomings and will certainly be more patient. The game...

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...

Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 (PS2)

If you liked "Winning Eleven 9", this is a no brainer. However, if you prefer more realistic soccer with official licenses, stick to the "FIFA" series. Either way, any soccer fan may want to check this out as a rental at least.

Headhunter (PS2)

If you're pumped for the release of Metal Gear Solid Substance, due out later this year, than Headhunter may just tide you over until then. Like most games of this nature, it does not offer up a ton of lasting appeal but you can expect more than 10...

Midway's pinnacle entry in the Mortal Kombat franchise is finally found its way to Nintendo's waggle-fied console after already serving tours of duty on both the Xbox and PS2 some...

Kill Switch (PS2)

With that said, kill.switch is a good shooter, perched on the boundary between realistic and cinematic. It's got a great story, too; while it may not be too hard to figure out for anyone who's ever been in the same room as a cyberpunk novel, its...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (PS2)

Put it this way: we've been avid PES fans since the series inception and this year we're FIFA converts. PES makes changes to its formula that aren't particularly welcome for the most part and, while the Become A Legend mode has potential, the general...

NFL Quarterback Club 2002 (PS2)

The Quarterback Challenge is clearly the selling point for Acclaim's NFL Quarterback Club 2002 and while it's an entertaining mode to say the least, it's not enough to compete against the likes of Madden NFL 2002. The lack of a franchise mode, along...

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...

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s (PS2)

I recently criticized the PSP version of PaRappa the Rapper for not offering enough bang for the buck and I'm afraid I'm going to have to do the same here for Guitar Hero Encore: Rock the 80s. Considering it contains less than two thirds of the number...

Grandia III (PS2)

Thus, this is a recommendation, but a qualified one. If you're looking for great, satisfying combat, look no further, but be ready and willing to wade through the story.

EOE: Eve of Extinction (PS2)

My biggest complaint with this game however, is the camera. It is slow and tracks terribly. Lining up for platforms becomes near impossible and it is very difficult to properly tell where you are in relation to obstacles and the like. This becomes very...

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (PS2)

It?s been a long time coming for this series to go 3D, and it?s been worth the wait. The developers should teach a class in the way to convert games to 3D and keep the feel of the 2D versions on the new consoles. Dragon Quest VIII is a spectacular...

MLB 06: The Show (PS2)

What I really liked about MLB 06: The Show was the career mode. I found it a lot of fun to make a player in my image, run him through spring training, and try to land myself a solid contract with the Seattle Mariners and later land a 20 million dollar...

God of War- PS2

What can I possibly say that can do God of War any justice? That is a tough question to answer, as I could say nothing and let the game speak for itself, or I could go on for hours and hours. Fortunately for you readers, I won't do either. I will...

SSX 3 (PS2)

Synergy - it's a beautiful word, like candy for the tongue. Perhaps it's the inflection at the end that makes is so delectable, or its inspired letter formation. Nevertheless, it stands out among the English Language as a word of character and...

Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal (PS2)

There isn't anything wrong with Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal as far as design goes. Most of the faults I find with the game have to do with the art direction, which I never liked in the first place. But it says a lot for the quality of the...

Rock Band 2 - PS2

Sadly, the Rock Band contest was a contest of skill, not just awesomeness, and the judges stuck to the rules - denying The Skeletor Experience Featuring Meatbags their rightful place among the final four. Curse you He-Man!

Katamari Damacy is a very unique game built on a simple and fun premise. Nothing else matters if the feeling of the original is not present in the sequel. If one does not become childishly giddy when rolling up cats, trees, giant squids and...
