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...

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.

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...

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...

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider -- The Angel of Darkness (PS2)

I didn't buy into the grandiose hype surrounding Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness prior to its retail release, and in truth I've never been much of a Tomb Raider fan to begin with, so its many shortcomings came as no surprise to me and its many bright...

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.

The Getaway Black Monday (PS2)

The Getaway: Black Monday suffers from poor gameplay mechanics, yet offers a gripping story and gorgeous cinematics. It's worth playing, if only to view as if you were watching a movie.

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...

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...

There are cinematics done in a cartoonish in manner yet the realistic style they chose to use makes it all seem awkward. Increasing the awkwardness would have to be the voices. Let's establish the fact that the game is camp. The dialogue would have...
