    It's nothing amazing but Halo does both its single and multi-player gaming aspects superbly making it one of the best

    Halo (Xbox Collection)

    It's nothing amazing but Halo does both its single and multi-player gaming aspects superbly making it one of the best

    I didn't want to put "overrated" in my classification because that would have meant I was not impressed with Halo at all. I was. But Halo did not blow me away to classify it as an "instant-classic" or "masterpiece". I... Read Full Review

    Has all the tools of a classic but is set back by its shallow combat system, lame dialogue and painfully long load times

    Jade Empire: Hisui no Teikoku

    Has all the tools of a classic but is set back by its shallow combat system, lame dialogue and painfully long load times

    Jade Empire proves that once again, looks can be deceiving. Actually to its credit, it's more than just looks. Jade Empire is not only one of the best looking games of its time but it also features vivid environmental an... Read Full Review

    Makes great improvements from its predecessor and overall a classic title but a few minor faults set it back a few

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

    Makes great improvements from its predecessor and overall a classic title but a few minor faults set it back a few

    It goes without saying, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II The Sith Lords (or simply KOTORII) had huge shoes to fill due to its predecessor, KOTOR, being one of its generation's greatest games. Despite switching de... Read Full Review

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

    I became a Star Wars fan overnight thanks to this game - gripping story, amazing characters and revolutionary gameplay

    I never found Star Wars to be interesting thinking it to be one of the most over-hyped franchises and western RPGs were just something to be ignored for me. Then in came Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and all of ... Read Full Review

    Kinetica

    This futuristic racer introduces unique racing elements and plays at a high level but a few minor problems set it back

    I've never seen or played a racer as futuristic looking or feeling as Kinetica. From the racers to the tracks to the music to the entire gameplay, everything just felt otherworldly. The racers are people merged with ... Read Full Review

    Dead or Alive Ultimate

    Polishes and adds online play, costumes, levels and revamps the gameplay for the first two DOAs, what more could you ask

    Dead or Alive entered the fighting game scene back in the days of the ancient Sega Saturn. It was known mostly for its speed and simplistic commands as opposed to other fighting games that emphasized on timing and combo-... Read Full Review

    Sudeki

    Just like a roller coaster ride - Sudeki starts out slow, speeds up and just as it hits its peak, it totally falls down

    Sudeki is one of the few Xbox games that bored me, surprised me, intrigued me but ultimately just disappointed me. The game was great overall but the story, which pretty much makes up half of an RPG's grade makes gre... Read Full Review

    ICO

    I won't go as far as to put ICO on a pedestal but as far as unique gaming experiences are concerned, it's a keeper

    I would probably label ICO as the 'most overrated underrated game for the PS2'. I see ICO in almost every single underrated games list written within the past few years and its follow-up, Shadow of the Colossus was a sma... Read Full Review

    An intense and stylish button-mashing experience for about 2 or 3 hours - that's about it

    Gungrave (RED Best Selection)

    An intense and stylish button-mashing experience for about 2 or 3 hours - that's about it

    Good news: The game is bargain bin priced. Bad news: It plays like a typical bargain bin priced game. Translation? There isn't a whole lot of gameplay to last for more than a handful of hours. Players must guide, Grav... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

    To this date, this is my favourite Grand Theft Auto - a perfect blend of action, humour and colour all in good fun

    I rated GTAIII a 10 but this game a 9 and yet I consider it the "best in series" and is probably my favourite out of the first three GTAs for the PS2. It's simple. As great as Vice City is on improving over its predec... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto III

    Not perfect by any means but this game is among the best and most important to gaming history up there with the classics

    Every decade or so, a video game takes over the entertainment industry by storm creating a global phenomenon. Twenty five years ago it was Super Mario Bros, fifteen years it was Final Fantasy VII and almost ten years bac... Read Full Review

    Don't believe the hate - Fable: TLC isn't the best game but one must appreciate the beauty of this choice-oriented game

    I'm quite tired of all the people bashing the game and seeing it as a major disappointment. When expected to be the messiah of western RPGs it will obviously fall short. Thankfully, I wasn't one of those highly expectant... Read Full Review

    Devil May Cry (Platinum)

    One of the better PS2 originals - Devil May Cry is fun and intense gun and sword action that totally kicks ass

    Everyone loves a good action game where all you do is slash off some creeps and gun down zombies while saving the hot damsel in distress. Well, Devil May Cry is all this but double up the flair, intensity and personality... Read Full Review

    Def Jam Vendetta

    Time to put your money were your mouth is and lay the smackdown, rapper style!

    I already know any game featuring rappers will get mixed reactions from people. Just the mention of "rapper" already draws negativity from miles away. But hey, whether you love rap or hate it, you can have some fun jumpi... Read Full Review

    Arguably the PS2's most epic and immersive action-RPG and one of its top ten RPGs of all time - a shame to miss! 

    Dark Chronicle

    Arguably the PS2's most epic and immersive action-RPG and one of its top ten RPGs of all time - a shame to miss! 

    The first Dark Cloud was a revelation, which sold more copies than I would have guessed (thankfully). As a result, we get Dark Cloud 2, which really tempted me to dub it a 'masterpiece'. Dark Cloud 2 improves on nearly e... Read Full Review

    A visually attractive game with a concept full of potential falls flat with its lack of activities and interaction

    Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball

    A visually attractive game with a concept full of potential falls flat with its lack of activities and interaction

    It’s no lie that this game is nothing but a marketing exploit. It’s pure fanservice by Tecmo to squeeze more money from Dead or Alive, which already offers plenty of it. But is this game really worth your mon... Read Full Review
