Chris casts his mind back over the long life of the PlayStation 2 and picks five games he thinks deserved more than they got.
3 .hack games? Really? Not enough Shadow Hearts.
only had dark cloud and star ocean off that list loved them both.
Get rid of 2 .hack games and replace them with Rogue Galaxy and Wild Arms 3. Nevermind they are combined at 3.
Extermination and spy fiction were two very underrated games IMO.
You know what hidden gem I absolutely loved? Urban Reign. It was basically a Tekken/Soul Calibur beat 'em up done right. The animations, the gameplay, the easy-to-learn; hard-to-master system. Everything about that game made it one of my favorite multiplayer games for the PS2. Such a shame that no one played it...
Good list. Dark Cloud was good but i think Dark Cloud 2 was a better deeper gaming experience. Star Ocean 3's battle system & easy to use synth system made that game stand out. Story was kinda cliche though. I personally would have added Odin Sphere, Ar Tonelico, Valkyrie Profile Silmeria, Sakura Wars Farewell My Love to that list.
The PS2 was the height of gaming for me. They took everything they learned from the PS1 and just drove out classic after classic. I could not imagine my teenage years without the PS2. Long live SONY, may the ps tripple bath in the glory of overtaking the Microsoft train and bring on the ps4!
Wild Arms 3 is definitely one of my favorite hidden gems
