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...

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...

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...

Gitaroo Man (PS2)

Gitaroo Man is a surprising, welcome diversion to the as-of-lately stagnant music/rhythm genre. Fans of previous rhythm games will eat this title up like a kid in a candy store, and even casual gamers who rarely enjoy games of this nature will surely...

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...

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...

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...

Capcom Entertainment Onimusha Blade Warriors

Onimusha: Blade Warriors probably should bear a warning for serious Onimusha fans only. If you dig the series, you'll probably not mind Blade Warriors at all. Ditto for players who have a ton of friends around to play for hours. However, the...

Eidos Interactive Tomb Raider The Angel Of Darkness

I didn't buy into the grandiose hype surrounding Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness prior to its retail release, and in truth I've never been much of a Tomb Raider fan to begin with, so its many shortcomings came as no surprise to me and its many bright...

Atlus U.S.A. Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

Overall, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is an original and refreshing take on the strategy RPG sub-genre. The near limitless play potential makes this game a godsend for obsessive, compulsive fans of this style of play, and the ocean deep gameplay ensures...

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...

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...

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.

FIFA 12 (PS2)

Canis Canem Edit (PS2) - German

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...

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...
