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...

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater - PS2

Dealing with a special edition of a game is tricky business. Chances are, you've got the original version, played through it a fair share of times, and thought it was the best damn thing since sliced bread. But when that newer version comes out, you're...

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...

Burnout 3: Takedown [European] (PS2)

The third time is the charm for this outrageously good arcade racer.

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...

Resident Evil 4

Resident Evil 4 is an incredible game, and one of the best RE games in existence. The story is great, the game is long, and the action is thoroughly creepy. The HD remake is available now for Resident Evil 4 is an incredible game, and one of the best...

Ratchet & Clank [Platinum] (PS2)

The sound effects, music and voice acting is all top notch - pay attention during the cutscenes and you may recognize some of the actors involved. The musical score is crisp and exciting, matching the environments perfectly. Enemies yell, electronics...

Burnout Revenge- PS2

Revenge's breathtaking sense of speed holds the key to its appeal - lean on the turbo boost and this game becomes pants-wettingly fast, with detailed visuals that never lag behind the action. The controls take very little time to master; responsive...

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...

Final Fantasy XII- PS2

One title in Gamedom which represents a clear delineation between RPGs players is Final Fantasy. People either love it or hate it. Next, you have the debate which rages within...

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...

Viewtiful Joe (PS2)

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...

Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition (PS2) - CD

Midnight Club 3 was one hot looking racer and not much has changed. The framerate resides in the 30fps area rather than the 60fps I would like, but with this much going on and at these speeds I must admit any lapse in framerate certainly never affected...

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...

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider -- Legend (PS2)

If I had to pick one problem with Tomb Raider: Legend, it'd be the length. It feels way too short and the main quest can easily be beaten over the course of a couple days of hard play, or perhaps a weekend. This is something of a problem nowadays, when...

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...

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.

Vivendi Universal Spyro enter the Dragonfly

Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly is nothing but a sheep in wolves' clothing. The gameplay, music, sound effects, and graphics are all sorely lacking and have mediocre written all over them. Do yourself a favor and let this one sit on the shelf... right where...

Savage Skies (PS2)

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...

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...

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"...
