    A worthy title in the platforming universe.

    In Kya: Dark Lineage, you play the role of the title character: Kya. In an opening cut scene, you and your brother get sucked into another world filled with fuzzy little creatures of good nature called Nativs, and a vari... Read Full Review

    i was looking for hidden gems, but found a hidden **** instead.

    this game is the definition of mediocre, but maybe a little worse than that. looking back, the PS2 seems like a console that is full of this mediocrity. kya is a game so 'middle of the road' that it's actually off... Read Full Review

    This is hands down my favorite platformer of the year. I played Ratchet and Jak, and they were both very good, but this one beats them both. The graphics are colorful and gorgeous. The levels are huge and are populated w... Read Full Review

    A little bit of this and a little bit of that. This game has more than its rightful share of 'borrowed' elements from other games. Air cannons in Kya are used exactly as the cannons in Super Mario World for the N64. Kya ... Read Full Review

    A great game that noone knows about... too bad because this game is actually very good!

    In the world of adventure games, this one is definately one of the better ones I have played. You take control of Kya, an athletic girl who can throw a boommerang better than any Australian around. Kya and her Half broth... Read Full Review

    An amazing 3D action platformer that's most enjoyable when it hits its strides.

    After scouring the PS2 library for some "underrated gems" I decided to check out Kya: Dark Lineage since it garnered a bit of praise. It's a good game. That much is sure. Perhaps it could even be considered a great ga... Read Full Review

    A top-notch game that should be ranked up there with the legendary Jak and Daxter!

    When it comes to platforming games, Sony's Playstation 2 never falls short. The legendary Jak and Daxter game that just about every PS2 owner has is one of the most highly addicting and overall fun platformers ever to be... Read Full Review

    Unless you're a manly man who refuses to play games with female leads, you should get some enjoyment out of this game.

    When you think of the word "Atari", what do you think of? Most people connect it to the days of their youth, when the 2600 dominated living rooms with its stylish wood paneling. And while the company that brought us the ... Read Full Review

    Snowboarding, free falling, and fun for everyone.

    I have to say that this is one of the most interesting mixes I have seen in an rpg. You have snowboarding, skydiving, riding air currents, hand to hand martial arts combat, magic, puzzle and storyline. The graphics a... Read Full Review
