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...

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...

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...

Odin Sphere (PS2)

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....

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...

EyeToy: Play 2 (PS2)

Overall, Play 2 is a vast improvement on the EyeToy formula, and an engaging diversion for a short while. A strong experience for multiple players, this would be a perfect title for families or parties, although you might find yourself bored with the...

Hot Shots Tennis (PS2)

Fortunately, that aspect of the game, while flawed, is deep enough to keep coming back to time and time again. If you're new to the series, or on the fence about tennis games in general, a rental is probably best. Thanks to its depth and ease of use,...

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...

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...

Burnout Dominator

The lack of online play hurts Dominator's replay value, while the weird and sometimes game-crushing glitches and programming mistakes make me wonder just how much effort was put into this game in the first place. For $50, players deserve more than a...

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...

Tekken 5- PS2

It's a worthwhile addition to any fighting fan's game library. I just wish Jinpachi wasn't in it.

Guitar Hero [With Guitar Controller] (PS2)

The series' first artist-focused title isn't bad... if only it wasn't so skimpy on the songs.

Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy (PS2)

If you're looking for a solid action title, however, levitate Psi-Ops into your console. The combination of decent plot, reality-defying powers and Havok-governed physics make one incredibly compelling experience. Even if you're skeptical of this...

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...

Soul Calibur III (PS2)

Don't misunderstand my overall opinion of the game: Soul Calibur is still undeniably THE best fighting game as far as I'm concerned; I don't like the relative slowness of Tekken (everything just feels slowed down), Virtua Fighter is too... for lack of...
