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...

Gran Turismo 4- PS2

All that said, the largest reason why this isn't a fully complete review is not because of the lack on online play, itself a significant omission in current racing titles. No, the biggest reason itself was that due to the unlocked nature of the game,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Shadow of the Colossus- ps2

I've just completed the first title I'd enter in the 'Games Are Art' camp opposite film judge Roger Ebert's arrogant stance to the opposite. Shadow of the Colossus (SOTC) was also among the most arduous to complete, not due to it's own difficulty or...

ICO (PS2)

When all is said and done, ICO is a finely crafted adventure game that combines exotic locales with mind-teasing puzzles. The ride may be a bit short in the end, but it's one that you won't soon forget. If the words "puzzle", "action" and "adventure"...

TimeSplitters: Future Perfect [European] (PS2)

Pro Evolution Soccer (PS2)

Football (soccer to the Americans) is considered to be the greatest sport of all time. The goal is simple: put that ball in that net. Newcomers always believe it can't be that difficult to score, but veterans know it's how the goal is made that is the...

Persona 3 FES (PS2)

The PS2 just keeps giving and giving. Every time a big release comes out it seems as though it'll be the console's swansong, and yet, pleasingly and beyond all expectations the old girl just keeps on going. Persona 3 FES is the latest cult Japanese RPG...

Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2- PS2

All in all, this is another great RPG on the PlayStation 2. The only thing keeping me from giving Digital Devil Saga 2 an unqualified recommendation is how hard it is to find its predecessor. If you've already got it and beaten it, you'll find DDS2 to...

Devil May Cry 3 (PS2)

Overall, Devil May Cry 2 is a game that was long on anticipation, but short on delivery. While the ideas of including a secondary character to extend gameplay, more acrobatic moves and a multiple areas for demon slaying showed promise, the execution of...

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...

Another issue in the game is the camera. While Konami attempted to give players a choice in camera, the two zoomed in angles are almost impossible to play with. Any players will find themselves bumping into objects if they don't use the standard...
