PS2 Network Adapter Review


The Playstation 2 Network Adapter came out in the fall of 2002, bringing the fun of PS2 play to the internet. It works through dialup and cable modem connections, unlike the XBox Live which only works through a high speed connection.

With the PS2 Network Adapter, you connect your PS2 to the world of games enabled for live play. Each game has its own sign in and tracking system. Each game can choose whether to charge or not charge for on line access to its area.


There are many games enabled for on line play, with more being added weekly. Some of the more popular games include Madden NFL and SOCOM. I enjoy playing one of the sleeper hits live - Frequency, where you play along with the music and try to outscore your opponents.

It's quick and easy to get connected. Most ISPs now have informational pages about how to hook up. We use a cable connection and were hooked up in minutes. The games themselves make it easy to go on line - just choose the menu option, create an account and you're in.

As with any on line game, your connection speed affects your gameplay. If you're on a slow, flaky dial up, expect to have problems controlling your character. In some games it may not matter at all, where your strategy and skill are being tested. But in more arcady games where it's about button mashing, you might be frustrated. It might be time to upgrade to cable or DSL!

Some of the best games out there - Vice City and Kingdom Hearts - aren't enabled for multiplay. But millions of players of the Final Fantasy series are eagerly awaiting the US release of Final Fantasy XI, which will be an on line only version of that series. I know I'll be getting my copy to play on line!
