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...

Konami Firefighter F.D. 18

That's not to say that Firefighters is wholly a failure. If you're willing to learn its patterns and work to counteract them, it offers a challenge that's quite unlike any other game on the market these days. It's occasionally frustrating, yes, but it...

Virtua Fighter 4 (PS2)

I've been a long running fan of the Virtua Fighter series. I've enjoyed the stream lined fighting system over Tekken and other titles since 1993. Virtua Fighter 4 is certainly a step in the right direction for SEGA's AM2 division.

Jimmy Hopkins might hate it here, but we think you'll warm up to Bullworth Academy quiiiite nicely.

Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves (PS2)

Oh, raccoons- the scourge of suburbia. They'll sneak up to your house under the cover of darkness and ransack your refuse, but they are also notoriously meticulous. With these qualities, it is no surprise that Sucker Punch chose a raccoon to be the...

Tekken 5- PS2

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

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...

Ape Escape 2 [European] (PS2)

Unfortunately, that little extra from the costumes is everything Ape Escape 3 adds to the main game. Gadgets are fun to use as always, but remain the same. Puzzles are also fun to solve, but aren't exactly challenging. And the overall level design,...

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...

Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova 2 (PS2)

As a DDR fan, I found myself liking Konamix quite a bit. The tweaks to the gameplay caught my eye, and I really like some of the new additions, like the ability to track my workout progress. Hardcore DDR fans, especially those who have modded their...

Fight Night: Round 2 (PS2)

However, all that aside, I personally was thrilled to see many of the issues that I brought up from my review last year addressed in Fight Night Round 2. The inclusion of the cutman mini-game between rounds is a great addition, and the Haymaker...

Odin Sphere [European] (PS2)

Despite a few nagging issues this may be one of the best games available for the PS2. Between the cool graphics and the solid plot this is one game that you'll probably come back to more than once.

Guitar Hero 5- PS2

Sync issues are always a problem when it comes to these titles; thankfully Guitar Hero 5 presents a calibration page that is easy to use. Much like the tool found in Rock Band, timing visual notes and audio notes are what fix the delay, though we...

Suikoden V (PS2)

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...
