Guitar Hero (PS2)

Single player mode takes you through the venues of a band on the rise. Your band starts off with a concert at someone's house then to larger venues until you finally reach a stadium. Each venue has you play a set list of songs whose difficulty will...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 - ps2

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of the series. It really is one of the best RPGs I’ve played in quite a long while, and even though the competition is thin, that doesn’t stop Atlus’ latest effort from being a clear-cut...

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...

Kingdom Hearts II (PS2)

Disney and Square Enix. Doesn't seem like the most obvious of collaborations, does it? A bit like My Chemical Romance doing High School Musical, or some such. And yet, cynicism aside, Kingdom Hearts worked. It wasn't perfect, but cherry-picking the...

Jak and Daxter [Platinum] (PS2)

With all this said, I must give Naughty Dog credit for creating a game that can truly be enjoyed by people of all ages. Whether you are thirteen or thirty, Jak and Daxter brings something special to the table. Its technology is superb and is leading...

Burnout Dominator [European] (PS2)

Burnout: Dominator for the PS2 is a wonderful racing game and a must buy for arcade racing fans or fans of the series itself. Fun gameplay and multi-player fire it ahead but the missing Crash mode and online sucks.

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...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 (PS2)

A friend, who knows my predilections for the Beautiful Game well, once IM'ed me a joke: "how you you say 'almost' in spanish?" "Casi?" "no, 'futbol!' lol" As jokes go, it musters a weak hi-hat. As metaphors for Pro Evolution Soccer go, it's apt. I have...

Persona 4 (PS2)

Persona 4 is the pinnacle of PS2 RPGs. No title is going to be able to touch it. No Final Fantasy, no Tales of whatever, not even the much vaunted Shadow Hearts series. If you enjoy RPGs even in the slightest, you must own Persona 4. It is quite...

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater - PS2

Dealing with a special edition of a game is tricky business. Chances are, you've got the original version, played through it a fair share of times, and thought it was the best damn thing since sliced bread. But when that newer version comes out, you're...

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...

Canis Canem Edit (PS2) - German

Have you ever wondered what the Grand Theft Auto titles might turn out like if they explored other scenarios? Like, say - for the purpose of this review - a boarding school? Well, that's pretty much what Rockstar must have thought too, when the Houser...

Hitman: Blood Money (PS2)

Hitman Blood Money ends up coming together quite nicely. The gameplay gives you plenty of choices regarding progressing through a stage, and it looks good while you do so. It would've been very easy to churn out another boring murderfest, but instead...

Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria (PS2)

I'd take Odin, Valkyrie and the magnificence of Valhalla over typical RPG fare any day. Those whiney teens, hapless females and silly demons just can't compete with Norse mythology. Or maybe it's just because I've played way too many RPGs with those...

SWAT: Global Strike Team (PS2)
