  • User Rating 2.4

    An aweful game, worth playing for the comedy value of owning it!

    Rated on July 24, 2008 by BlackCrow2

    Winback 1 and NHL Faceoff 2001 were the first games I bought for my PS2. Now by the time the sequel was released, I had long finished Winback 1, but I had fond memories of playing it, and to this day ...

    On its surface, Winback 2 is nothing more than a cheap knockoff of what's come before.

    Rated on July 24, 2010 by cjasko94

    A cheap knock off of Splinter Cell mixed with Time Crisis.<br />

    Rated on June 18, 2006 by crabbo19

    As soon as you start up the game do feel as though your playing an arcade game. This being because of the arcade style music and the generic woman stating the name of the game in a half sexy fashion. ...
