Guitar Heros is a fun and interesting game, and when GH2 comes out I might actually rebuy a ps2 to play it. Great fun and awesome when you are getting drunk with friends.

Driv3r, a Twenty Year Reunion

WTMG's Leo Faria: "Was Driv3r one of the first truly overhyped games in history? One of the first games incessantly covered by press pre-launch, only to end up being the complete opposite of what it promised once it finally arrived onto store shelves? It’s worth discussing. Then again, hindsight is 20-20; it’s easy to laugh at the fact it was once touted to be a GTA killer, but there were just half a dozen GTA clones back then, and we didn’t have YouTube or other reliable video players to properly check how a game played before actually buying it. Maybe Driv3r was a victim of its own hype, a troubled project made by people who didn’t want it to be too similar to Grand Theft Auto itself. But it sucked then, and it still sucks now. Not even the rosiest of nostalgia goggles can save this one."

It's a shame they tried to copy GTA, they were terrible at it. If they'd doubled down on making the driving the star they could still be going now.

Underrated? J&D was one of the most popular IPs at the time, quite literally the face of the ps2 beside God of War

Would love to see a open world Jak 4 on the PS5, would be amazing, but I know ND said they'd never do it.

purple1012d ago (Edited 2d ago )

apparently there is a movie being made. I just cant get my head around what Sony is doing recently,

In regards to cancelling twisted metal game, when they push ahead with series 2 of the tv show, surely she show is meant to promote the game, where the real profits can be made.

Now we hear of a Jan and daxter film, (an old ps2 game) but NO new game to go with it,

mind boggles:

Sony Pictures, PlayStation Productions Releases & In Production:

I wasn't aware that ND said they'd never do it...

I know they said it would difficult for them to go back to it after doing super high fidelity, gritty, realistic stuff like Last of Us but I didn't think they'd ruled it out completely.

They didn't say never, but was basically what they said. They actually tried making a new Jak, but what they were making was straying far from it's roots so they canned it. They're just in a different mindset when it comes to developing games compared to when they made Jak.

Jak and dexter is known franchise Sly Cooper was more hidden one tbh.

darthv721d 21h ago

...and he was trying to stay hidden because he was a thievius racoon.

Seeing jak&d left in the past like that really makes me appreciate nintendo even more for atleast keeping mario, zelda, metroid, and others around while making em still feel fresh, Playstation should have another gem besides astroboy and ratchet&clank

i wouldnt call jack and daxter underrated.

its a beloved franchise that pretty much was one of the biggest games on the ps2 and psp

No contest since 2012, PES/Pro Evo dominates FIFA in gameplay but fails in UX/UI and licenses. Graphics are a slight nod to FiFA.

Mr_cheese2d ago

Interesting read, some stuff not factually correct though.

EA didnt lose the rights to the name FIFA. They chose not to relicense due to the extortionate fee that they were being charged.

The bottom line is true though, EA are comfortable and put what feels like little to no effort into each release. There is still so much that can be done with this game and yet, we see so little.
