The PlayStation 2 was a true powerhouse when it come to both entertaining and experimental video games. FunstockRetro take a look at 10 lesser-known titles worth checking out!
Onimusha Dawn of Dreams and Genji. Genji 2 is trash but anybody who played the excellent original would probably agree with me.
Genji was an amazing game, and yeah, the second one was one of the biggest disappointments I've ever played.
Never played Genji, but was 2 the one with the historically accurate giant enemy crab?
Shadow Hearts 2 is underrated in the underrated list of games
True. Genji felt clunky and fluid all at the same time lol...
Agreed. And to that I will add Cold Winter.
Man i remember the getaway. I always wondered how you heal and it took me forever to realize that leaning up against a wall did just that 😅
Midnight club How can manhunt not be on the list
Because there's nothing underrated about Manhunt. That game was the shit and people knew it.
PS2 man... That console could do with Top 100 american, european, japanese, underrated, exclusive games list all at the same time... Gaming will never be the same again... And I'd add State of Emergency, Oni to that list...
Dead to Rights Smugglers Run The Getaway Ps1 game: Worlds Scariest Police Chases
Jaws Unleashed and were getting somewhat of a spiritual successor on PC called Maneater
That game was one of my guilty pleasures as a child.
all of them. Bring me back to the days when games weren't online and have hidden charges.
It was the golden age of console gaming. As for this article Blood will Tell, Second Sight, Mark of Kri, SMT Digital Devil Saga and many more.
Rule of rose
Ps2 had so many underrated games it's criminal.
Wth? The Top 5 from that list scored pretty high actually, except maybe God Hand
No Haven: Call of the King? AKA Jak 1.5?
Trying to think what else; Serious Sam Next Encounter, Eve of Extinction, Shadow of Memories? Psi-Ops. Oh yes. Psi-Ops.
Ty the tasmanian Tiger, Spinx and the cursed Mummy, anyone? Loved those games to death.
I never had a PS2 growing up. I bought a brand new one in 2012 and a whole bunch of games I always wanted to play from eBay and only played it for a bit. For some reason I had the sudden urge to play it so I hooked it up on Sunday. It's my first time playing through Code Veronica. I can still remember the late 90s early 00s like they were yesterday.
The Shadow Hearts games was one of the most underrated titles of all times. The games had a great storyline, likeable characters, fun battle system, & had excellent soundtracks. It’s unfortunate not many have heard nor played the games. Although not on PS2, another franchise I love to see return is Parasite Eve.
Bujingai. One of the greatest fighting mechanics in any game. Ever. Can’t believe it hasn’t been copied, let alone given a sequel or remaster. The fights were truly beautiful to watch. People watching me play kept saying “Wow...”
Where's Total Overdose?
PS2 Forever the Greatest Of All Time.
Wild Arms 4 and 5 were great and should have been on that list
Timesplitters 2: local multiplayer with self build levels, loads and loads of fun!!
Getting Up: Contents under pressure
Half of them are classics... Personnaly i'll say Mashed, Gauntlet seven sorrows, The Warriors, and one of the best Fps of all time, Timesplitters 2. I'll edit if i remember others :)
