Gladiator: Sword of Vengeance
The gladitorial arena is still waiting for a true champion. This one just misses the mark.
This is one of those games that quite possibly could have shined on original Playstation. The graphics would have been dulled down, but the gameplay would have at least satisfied. As it stands on PS...
Lumines: Oto to Hikari no Denshoku Puzzle
Highly-addictive clash of fast-paced puzzle game and intense music.
Anyone that has played an active puzzle game knows the addictive nature of mastering a strategy to blow through hours of game. Progressively getting faster and more complex as the limits of your conc...
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne
Nobody does it better. Dark and well written story. Beautiful gameplay. Just plain amazing.
I don't even know where to start. OK, first off, the ONLY thing that should keep you from playing this game is if a darker storyline might offend you. Otherwise, STOP READING THIS REVIEW AND PICK UP...
Monster Farm 5: Circus Caravan
This isn't Monster Rancher.... No way....
OK, first, Monster Rancher.... You breed monsters, pit them in the arena and whoop up on your opponents monsters right? Awesome! You spend weeks breeding the perfect monsters. Training them and bo...
Final Fantasy VII
Many peoples epitome of entertainment. Storyline unrivalled by book, movie or game.
What do you say about, arguably, the BEST piece of entertainment work to ever be conceived? If you are an rpg'er and you haven't played FF7, do now. If you play games at all, try this unprecedented ...
Missed the mark. Just another average FPS.
The game is beautiful graphically first of all. They really did a good job with the way walls crack and pillars crumble. There is quite a bit of detail just about everywhere. But after you get over...
Alien vs. Predator
Best AvP first person shooter when you consider the era.
If these same developers decided to do another AvP first person shooter on a current or maybe next-gen console, they could blow Halo out of the water. They didn't mess around with the game, it is rea...
Armored Core 3: Silent Line
Mecha combat doesn't get better on a console. Agetec leaves nothing to be desired, except maybe graphically.
OK I have said it before and I'll say it again. I am SOOO addicted to Armored Core. Thankfully Agetec makes me feel less and less guilty about saying it with each new release. Silent Line is the ex...
The GG Shinobi II: The Silent Fury
By far the best Shinobi title, possibly best ninja title.
Sega did it up right for this great Game Gear title. Controls are basic but simple and easy to master. Graphically Shinobi 2 makes Game Gear look better than most of it's games. Nothing that really...
Mutant League Football
Killed the ref? 10 yard penalty.
This title had the makings of horrible attempt written all over it. It should have been a $1 bargain bin special... But it wasn't, in fact far from it. Take a team of skeletons or Alienesque monste...
Yu-Gi-Oh! Shin Duel Monsters II (Konami the Best)
If you HAVE to play every Yu-Gi-Oh title that hits the shelf then give it a shot. Otherwise stay away.
I think it is sad that because the game Yu-Gi-Oh is designed for a younger audience, video game makers think they can get away with pumping out junk titles to make them happy. First of all, Yu-Gi-Oh ...
Kingdom Hearts II
Kingdom Hearts makes you less embarressed about knowing so much about all those Disney movies.
The first Kingdom Hearts drew off of a selection of some of the most diverse predeveloped characters and worlds in the present day entertainment world. Final Fantasy and Disney. And it was a huge su...
Final Fantasy IX
Once agains Square proves that if Final Fantasy is in the title it's going to be engrossing, innovative and tons of fun.
The last Final Fantasy title for PSone. The graphics are great, with a new almost cartoony yet quasi-real look to the characters and amazing visuals littered throughout the game. You learn abilities...
Armored Core 3
I am SOOO addicted to Armored Core. Fully customizable, fast and mobile giant war robots. Need I say more?
I am hooked. I HAVE been since the beginning. Rented the original from Blockbuster and never returned it. How much better can it get that giant fighting robots? Strap on your shoulder rocket launc...
Final Fantasy Tactics (PSOne Books)
How DOES Square do it? Brilliant. A staple on any serious PS playlist.
The basics of how to make an amazing tactics game. You have two options. 1.) Create a series and build each title upon the successes of the previous. Learn from mistakes and take advantage of des...
Resident Evil 4
Capcom in all their glory. And then some.
Resident Evil... I remebering locking all the doors to the house, sitting alone in the dark at about 2am, sleep deprived and wide-eyed as I navigated my way through the mansion at the start of the or...
God of War (Greatest Hits)
Not your average run, jump and slash action adventure... Say it with me... "WOW"
They did everything right. A warlord that promises his life to the God of War, Ares (known for his violent and horrific attitude toward battle), in exchange for the ability to vanquish his foes. Bef...
Shadow of the Colossus
You vs. Giant Sword Weilding Colossus... and it plays well and looks pretty to top it all off.
Shadow of the Colossus is one of the reasons to own a PS2. I have never seen something like it. It is new and exciting and doesn't suffer from the hick-ups the normal new and exciting do. You are t...
OK the make really never had a chance to be great, but it could have been a lot better.
OK so Megaman, Cutman and Dr. Wily walk into a bar.... and that's it. MegaMan Soccer? It had enough potential to at least be one of the titles that you couldn't rave about but might have snuck away...
Dragon Quest VIII: Sora to Umi to Daichi to Norowareshi Himegimi
Let this be a lesson to them. The U.S. LIKES it!
Normally cell-shading turns me away from a game. But it is Square... and it had the FFXII demo... I was HIGHLY impressed. Even the lack of playable characters (only 4 through the whole game), coul...
Fun, but where is that SQUARE kick I'm so used to???
80% of the determining factor when I buy a game is the game publisher. I'm thinking of rethinking the way I think about it. (ok that was bad I know) Graphically the game is pretty nice, but the sou...
Parasite Eve II (PSOne Books)
Best survival horror to date. Period. (sorry Capcom)
The first Parasite Eve gave us a taste of how a cross between survival horror and rpg should be done. In Parasite Eve 2 we pull much closer to pure survival horror. In fact you could just say surviv...
Minna Daisuki Katamari Damacy
Innovative, fun, new, exciting, beautiful graphically and great soundtrack to boot! PLUS not a hint of M content!
OK, bright colored box, happy go-lucky animals and funny teletubby looking things waiting for their friend to come out and play on cover. Run and scream? Or experience one of the most incredible gam...
Start off as a hard-core, wall-crawling ninja with amazing moves... and stay just that way.
This game had SO much potential, but it feels like Sega decided halfway through the making that they didn't ever really like Shinobi in the first place and gave up. It is fun. You get cool moves. B...
Absolute classic. Find a way to play it. You'll be glad you did.
Side-scrolling beat-em up. Kick, punch, kick, morph into man-eating beast, SMACK, BASH, MAGIC. Need I say more? If you have a system to play this on and haven't tried it.... WHATS WRONG WITH YOU?!...
Warship Gunner 2
Want a Naval Simulator on PS2? Check this out! Mostly because there isn't anything else. But it's a good game too.
Complete control over the design of a battleship, aircraft carrier or submarine. *Big Cheesy Grin* The best part of the game is definately being able to design your ships. The design interface is a...
Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
If you don't have about 24 spare hours everyday be careful. Great game and VERY addictive.
This is one of those game's that will just suck you right in. Playing through single-player or LAN is a lot of fun, but unless you have a LOT of patience you won't really get a taste for what the gam...
Metal Saga: Sajin no Kusari
Not incredibly innovative, by Atlus standards ALMOST a let down. But in the greater scheme a really good game.
First let's get the negative out of the way. Not a whole lot of innovation, less storyliine than I normally like and the items and upgrades can seem to be a bit lacking. I picked up the game because...
Everyone get on board! AWESOME game! Try it, love it and tell Capcom or we may not see 2 stateside!!!
OK for starters, HOW ON EARTH does this game get scored low by anyone??? It's innovative, immersive and just plain fun! Kill monsters, use monster's parts to equip yourself to go kill bigger monster...
