Resident Evil 4

In 2005, Resident Evil 4 on the Nintendo GameCube was rightfully lauded as one of the best action adventure games ever released, thanks to stunning visuals and white-knuckle action sequences that ranked amongst the best in gaming. Later that year,...

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories (PS2)

Like Liberty City Stories before it, Vice City Stories isn't nearly as appealing as a PS2 game, but it's still got worthwhile qualities.

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...

Splashdown: Rides Gone Wild- PlayStation 2

Overall, Splashdown: Rides Gone Wild is a marked improvement over the original game in nearly every way. Except for the revamped trick system, which isn't nearly as entertaining, deep, or satisfying as we had initially hoped it would be. Nevertheless,...

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 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...
