View Full Version : Need PS2 game recamendations

12-25-2002, 11:58 PM
Hi all,

I got a PS2 for Christmas and believe me I'm still stoked about it and I never thought I'd get one in the next year or so.

So, now I need advice on a game.

I love action/adventure, hack & slash and fighters... and my choiuces of my 1st game for it are between these:

Suikoden III (the sequal to my favorite console RPG series)
Virtua Fighter 4 (the sequal to my favorite fighting series)
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (From what I hear a great traditional Hack & Slash romp)

I'm open to other suggestions but no sports titles and nothing like Jack and Daxter.

My sister has FFX and Kingdom Hearts so I don't need those suggested.

I just got a best buy gift cert and I'm going to buy Suikoden III. So I guess that's what I would recommend.

Contra: Shattered Soldier
Devil May Cry (DMC2 should be out within a month or so)
Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
Ratchet & Klank(It's like Jak & Daxter, only MUCH better)
Tony Hawk 4
Oh, and for good measure, Guilty Gear X, or Guilty Gear XX if you're willing to wait til February.
GTA: Vice City, of course.
GunGrave(rent it first)
And yes, Suikoden III. Make sure you get that.

Hack and slash romp adventure: Bloodrayne, it's great fun and excellent controls.

Fighters: Since you already like the series you can't go wrong with VF4, it's a great game. Tekken 4, Guilty Gear, and Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance are also good fighters.

Hope this helps ^^v

Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (EA's game) is a very traditional hack'n'slash-game. And a good one, mind you! I really recommend it. (Yes, I have it.)

For other kinds of games... Hmm... Do you like games such as Metal Gear Solid? I'd recommend that one too. And for battle games, Tekken4 is a must, although I liked Tekken3 better.

Thanks guys for the recamendations.

I bought:

Virtua Fighter 4
Fatal Frame

I really want Suikoden III but the cheapest it is near me is 60 bucks for a used copy and I can't use my credit card... but I'll get it later.

Like I said, thanks for the suggstions.
