The Japanese import game based on the Dynasty Warriors mechanics.

I use to play that non-stop. The enemies are relentless and transformations are limited due to energy consumption. Though it's extremely fun for G1 nostalgia sake like taking on Predaking as a boss!

I have one problem with San Andreas. The world was nice and huge with plenty to do, and it was just the right length. My problem was that, by PS2 standards, the graphics were utter shit.


True. I remember GTA: San Andreas and MGS3 came out around the same time. Obviously one is prettier than the other :lol:

From what I've heard, the voice acting is probably the only good thing about it.

I heard it was only released in Japan, so if you felt like modding your PS2 that was really the only way to play in in the states.

Who said that? GT5 was PS3, sure, but GT3 and 4 were both PS2.

Yeah, the PS2 was region-locked, so you couldn't just import the game and play. You had to mod it first, which isn't easy.

I saw that on Youtube once! Is it also compatable for US PS2s?

PS: I just saw some gameplay on YT, and Megatron said somthing about an "invisible wall dissapeared." :BANG_HEAD:

Mind if I add one to the list? It's a ps1 game, but it's awesome! :D I recently bought Megaman Legends for PS, and it's flippin' awesome! The graphics are great for it's time, the gameplay is good and easy to learn, and so far it's had a great story! As with all megaman games, it has it's frustrating moments :BANG_HEAD: , but still, just don't waste your time whining and go upgrade your buster. :KREMZEEK:

2. Kingdom Hearts
3.Atlier Iris 1
4. We <3 (Heart) Katamari
5. Shadow of the Colossus

I'm surprised no one mentioned Okami so far. It's the greatest game. Sad it's so underrated though :sad:

Correction, Battlefront 2. The additions more than make up for what they removed. (Bespin, for example)

Motto: "Feel free to call me Tim."
Weapon: Twin Concussion Blasters
1. grand theft auto series, as of III.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ax-MyEQWbQ[/youtube]

2. Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams

Soki has to be my favorite Onimusha protagonist, to the point I even main him in Tatsunoko VS Capcom.

3. The Warriors

Out of all the licensed video games I've heard and played, this has to be la creme de la creme of the PS2's generation. CAN YOU DIG IT?

4. Wild Arms 5
5. Twisted Metal: Black

I rounded out the Top 5 by naming Sony IP's that are overshadowed by God of War, Killzone, SOCOM, to name a few.

I really missed the old levels like Bespin Platforms, Tatooine Dune Sea, and the two original Kashyyks. Anyone here have a high score on Battlefront 1 or 2? Just wondering. My personal best is 172 kills in Battlefront 1.

As an afterthought, I'd like to replace Xenosaga with Rez.

I just beat Kingdom Hearts II for the second time on standard, and it reminded me why it is, in my opinion, the greatest game ever conceived.

-Unforgettable charachters
-Smooth graphics

-One of the best soundtracks EVER

This game topped the original in every way, and i'm really Looking foward to Kingdom hearts 3D and Birth by sleep

I'll probably be alienating myself from the forum, but I thought I'd go ahead and join the fray with my top five:

5. Katamari Damacy
4. Disgaea (1 or 2, take your pick)
3. Shadow of the Colossus
2. Okami
