Resident Evil 4 (PS2)

RE 4 is a must play, a must own, a must replay, a must everything! I've tried many times to make a Top Ten Favorite Games Ever list, and I usually don't get past 3 or 4. It is just that hard to name the best of the best. I do know one thing though....

Final Fantasy 10 (PS2)

It began with number seven for me, I think. My love of the Final Fantasy series started right there with Squaresoft's seminal swords-in-space RPG epic. Being 15-years-old when the game was released for the PlayStation console of which I had just...

God of War- PS2

Simply put, this is what the PS2 was designed for, and this is what we've been waiting for: games that literally show off the power and technology of Sony's machine. Sure, it might be one of the oldest kids on the block, but it still knows plenty of...

Shadow of the Colossus (PS2)

I'll throw out this lone caveat: Shadow of the Colossus may not be for everyone, and in fact I'm sure it won't be because it won't seem to have the same action that everyone expects from titles nowadays. This is unfortunate for those gamers, because...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 (PS2)

Persona 3 is, despite that complaint, one of the best RPGs on the PS2, and in fact, on any console. It has characters you'll care about, a combat system that's easy to get into but hard to master, enough of a difficulty curve that you'll feel like...

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (PS2)

Silent Hill 4 is still a damned scary game, and it's one of the better survival horror titles out there because of that. It's good to see its designers taking risks and experimenting with the formula. This time, however, it's kind of a misfire. It's by...

Rogue Galaxy (PS2)

Note: It's worth noting that this is a dual layer DVD game, so if your system has issues with those, you might want to rent the game or borrow it from a friend before buying it only to find that it won't play in your system.

Monster Rancher 4 (PS2)

In short, fans of the Monster Rancher games should be satisfied with Monster Rancher 4 when it makes its way into their PS2s. The game lacks the necessary bells and whistles that contemporary gamers have come to expect from their digital entertainment...

Black (PS2)

BLACK is the kind of gun opera you'd expect from director John Woo, starring Chow Yun Fat. It's explosive both in its technical presentation and gameplay, but it's a very short experience. Brevity is a tough $40 pill to swallow, but from the opening...

Tekken 5- PS2

Developing a video game series is tricky business. You've already established a cast of likeable characters, a solid gameplay formula, and a certain standard by which to judge your next great creation. You've obviously gotten enough positive feedback...

Burnout: Revenge (PS2)

While the strange approach Criterion took with this bite-sized Burnout made me nervous, I am happy to report it is a lot of fun. Crashing cars puts a smile on your face whether you're in the driver's seat or watching from a bird's-eye view, and Autolog...

FIFA 11- PS2

Many people believe that once they have played one FIFA installment they have played them all; the teams, players and stadiums may change but gameplay stays the same. Well, that may have been the case until the unleashing of FIFA 11.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories (PS2)

Vice City Stories on the PS2 is a great return trip to the seediest of cities, but a short one at that. The fact that the game itself is a port over from a handheld will hamper the experience for some, but the nice $20 price tag more than makes up for...

Yakuza 2 (PS2)

But all these features have been woven around the true centerpiece of Yakuza 2: its narrative. The utterly regressive, unrelentingly linear, cutscene-driven, genre-derivative story that I swallowed hook, line, and sinker. The one I was genuinely sad to...
