Wild Arms 3 (PS2)

Butter my butt and call me a biscuit," says a character in XSEED's new Wild ARMs 5. Well, calling him a character is a bit of a stretch--he's really one of the immobile town dwellers you see in every RPG who delivers a single line and nothing else, the...

Devil May Cry 4

It’s visceral good fun, but enemies obligingly wait for you to find them in the otherwise empty, boxy locations of Refrain's 10 short missions, and the hunt quickly feels rote. Battling oversized bosses breaks up the routine, but even these fights can...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Battle Nexus (PS2)

When Konami released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles last year for consoles and the PC, all we wanted was a spirited beat-'em-up in the vein of the classic Turtles arcade games. While Konami managed to get the genre right, it unfortunately succeeded at...

Killzone (PS2)

It's tough to top the current crop of established action games with a brand new franchise, but that hasn't stopped Sony and developer Guerilla from trying with Killzone, a new story-driven first-person shooter developed for the PlayStation 2. The game...

La Pucelle: Tactics (PS2)

La Pucelle: Tactics is yet another strategy role-playing game about teenage, French-named, anime-style, exorcist demon-hunters. If only we had a penny for every one, right? But yes, it's true, this strangely named game from the makers of last year's...

Hot Shots Tennis (PS2)

For fans of golf video games, the words "Hot Shots" conjure up images of goofy, cartoonlike characters playing fast-paced golf on fictional courses in far-off places. The Hot Shots Golf series has been tremendously popular since its debut on the...

Soul Nomad & the World Eaters (PS2)

Even in its concluding stretch there is certainly no lack of quirky role-playing titles coming to Sony's still-dominant PS2. At the front of the pack is developer Nippon Ichi who...

Phantom Brave (PS2)

Atlas USA's Phantom Brave centers around a young girl, Marona who sees spirits. Is this game worth your time, or will the spirits fail to haunt your video-game playing desires?

God Hand- PlayStation 2

God Hand's wild sense of humor, surf rock soundtrack, and pure focus on ridiculous martial arts brawls makes this simple action game fun and challenging.

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (PS2)

While the long-running Castlevania series continues to thrive on Nintendo's portable gaming systems, it's still having problems coming into its own on consoles, if the new Castlevania: Curse of Darkness is any indication. Like 2003's Lament of...

Need for Speed ProStreet (PS2)

It can't be easy to be a game developer in charge of releasing a new game in a series every year. People don't want the same game over and over, yet they're unhappy if the game strays too far from the established formula. EA deserves credit for trying...

Silent Hill Origins (PS2)

When you think of Silent Hill, what jumps to mind? A misty town? Cryptic dialogue? Walls dripping with blood? Well, the good news is that Silent Hill: Origins has all those things, and now Konami has lifted the foggy veil on the PlayStation 2 version...

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows (PS2)

Whether you play it alone or with friends, this uninspired update to the '80s swords-and-sorcery arcade dungeon crawl misses the mark with its boring, mindless action and short, forgettable quest.

Suikoden Tactics [European] (PS2)

Suikoden Tactics is a strategy role-playing game set in Konami's Suikoden universe, though Tactics shares a rather tenuous connection with the rest of the games in the series. Suikoden Tactics retains some of the subtle nuances of the Suikoden series,...

Even with input from George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and the original John Williams film score interwoven throughout, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for the Nintendo DS doesn't feel much like a real Indy game experience. The gameplay is awkward in...

Fire Pro Wrestling Returns (PS2)

On a final note, I love the Fire Pro Wrestling series but Fire Pro Wrestling Returns does not have much to make you want to keep the game. It reminds of back in the day when wrestling games didn't have a story mode. While it's all in good fun,...
