I have done a countdown of PS3,Gamecube,Wii even so I think it is only fitting to do a countdown of my top 10 favorite games to hit the Playstation 2 the best selling console of all time. To make things interesting and give other games a chance I am only gonna allow one game per series to make it fair so it is no all hogged by one series. I won't be adding images because I struggle to input them on my computer now. Anyway I still hope you enjoy the list.
10.Klonoa 2 Lunteas Veil: A game that came very early in the PS2 lifespan and very unnoticed. Klonoa 2 is a 2D platformer set on a 3D plane with massive levels some amazing level design and even some tricky puzzles to keep game fresh and becoming boring. Only a couple of flaws with this game are the length it's to short and the bosses are a pushover. Namco if you are listening stop with your Tekken and Soul Calibur and make Klonoa 3.
9. Beyond Good and Evil: Another game that went totally under the radar but it has been released on the likes of XBoxLive. You take the role of Jade a photographer who has to get down to the case of dissappearences by the Alpha Unit. What is really good about this game is that it takes insparation from Zelda but it does have it's own type of gameplay and puzzles. You can take pictures of things to gain currency and get health upgrades and some of the puzzles are very interesting one section sees you have to use stealth. Another gem gone unnoticed and a heavily rumoured sequel has been in the works for ages but will it see the light of day fingers crossed.
8.GTA San Andreas: The best GTA because it virtually hit the nail in what you could do. The city was huge. You could feed your character,cloth him and even customize a vehicle . No game is the series had done that plus you can swim as well. It's like everything fell into place for this game.
7.Jak 2 Renegade: Any one of the 3 could have made on the list but I went with the sequel Jak 2 Renegade. It was a massive challenging adventure with plenty of humor and also some tough battles. While it does get insanely hard it makes you even more determined to beat it. Plus you can go Dark Jak who is insanely powerful with his own moves and you can ride a hoverboard as well through the city. Overall a masterpiece by the Crash Bandicoot designers Naughty Dog.
6.Okami: Okami came very late in the PS2 lifespan but it remains a masterpiece. The game is full of stuff to explore and a Celestial Brush that let's you do wonders with. As Amateratsu you have to get rid of the dark evil spreading your world. As you progress throughout the story the game sucks you in and you meet strange characters. What I also like is how it is inspired by Japanase mythlogy. If you haven't played it yet then I suggest you should or your missing out on a bonafide classic.
5.Ratchet and Clank 3 Up Your Arsenal: This is the series that made me proud to own a PS2 and this game is the best of the bunch. Ratchet and Clank 3 sees our heroes return to their own Galaxy to stop Dr Nefarious from turning animal lifeforms into robots and blowing up planets. Ratchet and Clank must require the help of the dim witted Captain Qwark and the ll mighty Q Force to help them. With the most devasting arsenal in the series and high paced action Ratchet and Clank 3 ended a fitting trilogy.
4.God of War 2: I didn't start playing God of War till the collection on PS3 but God of War 2 had without doubt the best weapons and puzzles at your disposel. As Kratos you had been betrayed by the gods and were seeking revenge on Zeus. The series had bigger more beautiful enviroments to explore and also bigger bosses such as the very first boss in the game which is still my favorite GOW boss battle. Unlike God of War the puzzles felt a bit more fair in the fact in the first you could die alot if you failed them but this was much better. A well excuted sequel.
3. Shadow of the Colossous: In my eyes this is certainly prove of what art is. While most of the area is an empty field the game is more about slying giant beasts with only a sword and bow but that's easier said than done. Each boss is basically a puzzle in itself and that's what keeps the game fresh. Also some won't attack you unless you provoke them and some will. The ending is also a massive big plot twist as well. All in all a game only the men at Team Ico could have done.
2.Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater: The earliest game in the MGS timeline. Snake is sent to defeat his mentor The Boss in the game. Unlike other games in the series you have to rely on things like food and your camoflague to keep you going and to avoid enemy fire. The bosses in the game are very interesting one is like a shoot out with a professional sniper but because of his age he can be beaten more than one way. Another plays with your mind showing all the people you have killed in the game. All the stuff you basically come across is genius by Kojima Productions plus the Intro is pretty awesome too.
MY NUMBER 1 PLAYSTATION 2 GAME IS
1.Resident Evil 4: Resident Evil needed a change and the legendary Shinji Mikami gave us this. Enemies that were armed and some that were just very creepy like the Regenrators still gave Resident Evil fans a reason to still be on their toes. You were sent to rescue the presidents daughter sounds simple but after that the real fight for survival began. You fought things like big sea creatures,giants,Chainsaw Wielders and even invisable moth like creatures. The game had so many memorable moments like the cabin fight, the Krauser Knife fight and the Electric Room which kept you on your toes. Also you could buy and sell things and even upgrade weaponary to a merchant. Overall Resident Evil 4 as a whole was a masterpiece, Whilst it tonned down on scares it had some edge of the seat moments and some cool boss battles. Also it gave you unlock extras to go back and play it again Seperate Ways,Assassignment Ada and The Mercarnies. Overall Resident Evil 4 is the pinnacle of the RE series in my opinion and the best game on PS2
Sly 2 Band of Thieves: The best Sly game with a big open world.
Devil May Cry: Best DMC game there is
Overall that's my top 10 PS2 games of all time tell me some of your favorites.
