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...

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...

Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat (PS2)

Once aboard her ship, the game takes on an entirely new dimension. The ship allows the player to explore, complete goals and fight some great ship battles. Once again, the combat is a little bit simplistic but does have more depth than the land...

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...

Atlus U.S.A. Odin Sphere

All in all, Odin Sphere ends up being an unforgettable game due to its graphics and unique gameplay, but ends up being riddled with some major problems and puzzling game design issues that greatly reduce the amount of fun that can be had with it....

FIFA 11

Career Mode, previously known as Manager Mode, has also seen a number of significant improvements. Players are able to select whether they want to control just the players, be just the manager (and therefore matches are simulated) or a combination 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...

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...

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.

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...

A follow up to the quirky, critically acclaimed Viewtiful Joe, Viewtiful Joe 2 is likewise acclaim-worthy, offering more off-beat characters and side-scrolling super-heroics in highly stylish, cell-shaded, movie-spoofing and otherwise caricatured...

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.

The Great Escape (PS2)

Overall, The Great Escape will be most enjoyed by fans of the movie. Players who like a good stealth game should consider leaving this title on the shelves and looking elsewhere. There are definitely far better examples of games in this genre.

Every level has 3 or more objectives but you only need to fulfill the main one to progress. It is unlikely that you will go back to previous levels to take care of the second and third objectives but if you did, it would prolong the length of the game...
