Windows 10 Review for Dummies

Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

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

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


15. Grand Theft Auto III

Rockstar Games made a name for itself with the release of Grand Theft Auto III, the first truly open-world game of its kind. Before the PlayStation 2 era, sprawling sandbox game worlds were but a glimmer in the eye of developers, and Rockstar brought that dream to life. Providing gamers with a massive city to explore, Grand Theft Auto III immediately became the talk of the town, giving birth to a new type of game entirely. Since then, a number of developers have borrowed concepts first established by Grand Theft Auto III, as open-world action games have continued to grow in relevance and popularity. It was a revolutionary game, and for that very reason should be praised.



14. Okami

Often compared to Zelda, Capcom's artistic adventure game Okami serves as one of the PlayStation 2's greatest action puzzle titles. With a cel-shaded Japanese water color art style like nothing before, Okami's graphics are truly a work of art. But visuals aside, the game puts you in the paws of a wolf. With a unique gameplay mechanic, players must use a "Celestial Brush" to interact with the environment and attack foes. Learning different brush techniques keeps the game feeling fresh, and adds a layer of magical innovation that has yet to be recaptured.



13. God of War II

The swan song of the PlayStation 2 came in the form of the second chapter of Kratos' story. Proving that Sony's second console was still a force to be reckoned with, God of War II's massive bosses and epic set pieces dwarfed what was being shown off on the Xbox 360 and PS3 at the time. Sony Santa Monica has proven that it's made up of developers that are masters at their craft, and God of War II is a shining example of that fact. Those wondering what a quality sequel looks like need only to examine what this studio achieved with the second entry in Kratos' tale.



12. ICO

The tragic story of a horned boy and a young girl striving to escape a massive fortress is easily one of the most memorable and enchanting experiences you'll find on the PS2. Developed by the now infamous studio known as Team ICO, ICO is one of the many reasons PlayStation gamers are clamoring for The Last Guardian. If you're looking for an emotional game experience rife will subtlety and nuance, this work of art is an absolute must.



11. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Sure, Hideo Kojima may have pissed off a lot of people by pulling the spotlight off Solid Snake to make way for Raiden, Metal Gear Solid 2 still proved to be a worthy sequel to the PlayStation classic. With much improved visuals, a huge cast of colorful characters, and a story that, while totally convoluted and out there, was immediately captivating. Some may argue that this is the weakest of the four mainline entries in the MGS series, but considering the astounding quality of the other three, that's not necessarily a terrible thing.
