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...

NBA ShootOut 2003 (PS2)

All in all, Shootout could've been a solid basketball experience, were the controls tighter. The Career mode is a very creative addition to the sports genre, and a welcome one at that, because it has a more realistic view as to what happens to players...

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...

Burnout 3: Takedown [European] (PS2)

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

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"...

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...

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...

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy (PS2)

With all this said, I must give Naughty Dog credit for creating a game that can truly be enjoyed by people of all ages. Whether you are thirteen or thirty, Jak and Daxter brings something special to the table. Its technology is superb and is leading...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2002 (PS2) - CD

There's definitely something that I'll give Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2002: it performs an amazing job of providing an environment for novices to pick up and play the game. Veterans of golf simulations shouldn't be alarmed, however, because the title offers...

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...

Destroy All Humans! (PS2)

The combination of frustrating mission mechanics and limited replay value leads me to strongly suggest renting Destroy All Humans before buying, if at all, regardless of your love for bad sci-fi. The chance to probe and incinerate the Cleavers isn't...

SWAT: Global Strike Team (PS2)

Global Strike Team is an entertaining title. Its campaign is long enough that you won't finish if you're renting it in one sitting. The game is literally begging for a random scenario generator. Truth be told, creating one shouldn't be too hard either....

MLB 2005 (PS2)

Overall though, MLB 2005 is much better than last year's title by leaps and bounds, and comes closer than ever to presenting a challenge to EA and other baseball titles. In fact, it's plausible that next year portends 989's title to give MVP baseball a...
