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...

Okami (PS2)

Does the name Amaterasu Omikami ring a bell? I am perfectly certain it doesn't, unless you are familiar with Japanese mythology. Amaterasu is the sun goddess, ruler of the High Celestial Plain and probably the most important deity in Japanese...

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (PS2)

What else is there to say? Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence took a great game and made it better, added a whole other online game to the mix plus a wealth of extras and then chopped the price nearly in half. Considering the product they started with was...

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...

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.

WWE SmackDown! Vs Raw 2007 (PS2)

Let's be honest with each other – every wrestling game released for the Xbox has been extremely disappointing to say the least. Raw and Raw 2 featured control issues that...

Konami Firefighter F.D. 18

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...

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...

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...

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.

Final Fantasy XII- PS2

2001 marked the year of release for the much anticipated tenth incarnation of the Final Fantasy series, for the Playstation 2. Boasting an engaging story, beautiful cinematics, and stellar voice acting, Final Fantasy X set a new high for role-playing...

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...

FIFA 12 (PS2)

Sports games are inherently hard to review. Where those who don't like sports fail to understand what a new version of a release, each year, can give those of us who love the beautiful game. Whereas we'll spend hours just looking at the players in our...

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...

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...

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...
