If you're a PlayStation 2 owner, or are buying gifts for one, what are the five games you really should have in your collection? We've had a PS2 since they came out, and here are our favorites.
|Final Fantasy X|
Months of fun gameplay, a great plot, lovely graphics, quests, puzzles, strategy and bloodless combat. This series just gets better and better with each new version. Check out IX and VIII too!
Final Fantasy X Review
Usually I'd cringe at a Disney-involved game. But Squaresoft did a BRILLIANT job of combining the best of the Final Fantasy characters with Disney villans and landscapes. A true joy for adults to puzzle through and kids to marvel at.
Kingdom Hearts Review
|Grand Theft Auto: Vice City|
The first two games on the list are kid-friendly and adult-fun. This third game is ONLY for adults. But it is *tremendously* fun. You can hop into cars, motorcycles, speedboats, airplanes and go around an entire city. Choose crime, or choose pizza deliveries and package-hunting. It's up to you.
Vice City Review
|Gauntlet: Dark Legends|
Gauntlet is the classic arcade game which really does let four players play together quite easily. The characters are *great*, from the archer, magic user, warrior and thief. Their lines have us laughing out loud. Gameplay is simple but amazingly addictive. There are TONS of levels in here, and replaying levels is always fun. Unlock the cool special characters for even more fun!
Gauntlet: Dark Legends Review
It's Bond, James Bond, doing stealth missions, driving cars, planes, armored snowmobiles and much more! The emphasis is on stealth, on avoiding conflict instead of barrelling in with guns blazing. The graphics are great and you definitely replay levels looking for those "Bond Moments." Great for anyone old enough to enjoy the movies.
007 Nightfire Review
