Shadow Hearts: From the New World (PS2)

Shadow Hearts: From the New World comes dangerously close to being outright awful due to the ridiculousness of the characters. Diverging from stereotypical warriors and princesses in RPGs is always welcome, but not when the characters are unique just...

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,...

Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith (PS2)

The box claims Revenge of the Sith is the "ultimate Jedi action experience". I would have thought that crown belonged to Knights of the Old Republic. I guess the keyword here is "action." In any case, diehard Star Wars fans are sure to flock to this...

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.

Ghost Recon Jungle Storm - PlayStation 2

If you're looking at Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm from a single-player perspective, you'd be best off making it a weekend rental. The two single-player campaigns are relatively short and not particularly challenging, even on the highest difficulty...

Airforce Delta Strike (PS2)

Its biggest flaw is that the dogfights that are nominally its focus are satisfying and will keep you engaged, but escort, bombing, and recon missions are a lot more fun. If you can handle the in-game chatter (which you can mute, but not entirely...

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...

The Suffering [European] (PS2)

Problems aside, however, The Suffering is one of those games that's a surprising twist to the horror genre. With extremely creative monsters, an unique setting and quite a bit of replayability, The Suffering provides a sense of where the survival...

MTV Music Generator 3

Music Generator 3 gets high marks for being such an improvement over previous titles in the series but there are still some glaring deficiencies to creating music on a console. Among which is a lack of storage space (MG3 stores its files only on memory...

Blood Omen 2- PS2

Crystal Dynamics created a game that strikes an interesting balance between exploration, combat and puzzle solving. The dingy, antiquated atmosphere of Nosgoth has never looked so good, and some of the stages look absolutely stunning. Aside from the...

Firefighter F.D. 18- PlayStation 2

That's not to say that Firefighters is wholly a failure. If you're willing to learn its patterns and work to counteract them, it offers a challenge that's quite unlike any other game on the market these days. It's occasionally frustrating, yes, but it...

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...

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.

Musashi: Samurai Legend- PlayStation 2

While it's good to see Musashi back on the screen again, it's unfortunate that his title is hampered by a short game experience, practically unused skills and technical glitches. Hopefully it won't take another seven years before this hero returns in...

Deus Ex: The Conspiracy (PS2)

This is a scary game, but not scary in the Zombies-and-Ghosts kind of way -- scary in the one-world-government-conspiracy way. And it's also a very adult game, not in the gore-and-hookers kind of way -- adult in the sense that the storyline is geared...

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...
