GameRevolution's Top 25 PS2 Games Of All Time (Full List)

Posted on Friday, June 28 @ 15:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn



20. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3


Much like Guitar Hero, the Tony Hawk series spawned a cultural phenomenon that expanded far beyond the hardcore. The inarguable best entry in the franchise is Pro Skater 3, which is regarded by many to be the greatest action sports game of all time. It's an absolute blast to play on your own, chasing high scores, or competing against your friends, trying to out-do your pals' greatest tricks. Regardless of whether or not you enjoy skateboarding, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is so much fun, you won't be able to resist.



19. Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Of all the charming platformers on the PlayStation 2, the Ratchet & Clank series is easily one of the best, and the greatest of the franchise is hands-down Up Your Arsenal. With a slew of crazy awesome weapons to play with and upgrade, Insomniac's third entry in the Ratchet series is an absolute must for PlayStation fans. The game's cast of characters are super charming and well written, and the wonderful blend of platforming and combat was unparalleled at the time. If you're looking for an experience that will have you grinning from ear-to-ear from start to finish, look no further than Ratchet and his robotic buddy Clank.



18. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Ubisoft revitalized the Prince of Persia franchise in spectacular fashion with The Sands of Time. Thanks to some incredible action, a magical story, and a super awesome rewind time mechanic, Ubi's action-adventure was an absolute must-play at the time. The first time I ran on walls as the Prince, it was an absolute mind-blowing experience. In many ways, The Sands of Time laid the groundwork for action-adventure games to follow, and for that reason alone should be commended.



17. Devil May Cry

As far as pure action games on the PS2 are concerned, Devil May Cry takes the cake (or pizza in this case). Originally intended to be a Resident Evil game, DMC features plenty of horror elements, but unlike Capcom's scare-filled series, its claim to fame is its fast-paced sword and gun combat. Unlike anything else at the time, Devil May Cry's gameplay was insanely fluid and intuitive, which made its epic boss encounters all the more incredible. Anyone who claims to be a fan of action games should be required to play this genre-defining game.



16. Beyond Good & Evil

Serving as one of my favorite new IPs from the PS2 generation, Beyond Good & Evil holds a very special place in my heart. Michel Ancel and his team at Ubisoft managed to create a world rich with personality and character. The bold decision to center the game around a female photographer in wa world populated by a bunch of anthropomorphic creatures surprisingly paid off. The characters are great, the story is compelling, and the gameplay is serviceable enough to carry you through the entire experience without growing tired or frustrated. Now if only we could get a sequel...
