God of War II Second Opinion

God of War II is a fine game, and definitely one of the most polished, playable titles available for the PS2. However, it suffers from the same significant (and possibly unavoidable) problem as its predecessor—an unlikable hero.

When God of War was released on the aging PS2 back in 2005, it was immediately hailed as one of the best action games of all time, going on to win numerous accolades and game-of-the-year awards. But the videogaming landscape has changed significantly in the past two years. The big three (Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft) have released their "next-generation" consoles, and player expectations have risen accordingly. So how could God of War II, designed on the now-ancient PS2 hardware, possibly live up to the expectations of its fans?

Game Description: God of War II continues that thrilling and bloody tale of Kratos, the mortal warrior who challenged the war god Ares for his throne. He succeeded, but his journey does not end there. In God Of War II he rules over war, far more ruthless than Ares ever was. To end his continued torment, Kratos must journey to the far reaches of the earth and defeat untold horrors and alter that which no mortal, or god has ever changed, his fate. God of War II sets an epic stage for a devastating mythological war to end all wars.

LocoRoco – Second Opinion

I'd be very hard-pressed to pick another game on the PSP which is as memorable in terms of audio and visuals as this one is. It stands out, has its own style, and is impossible to mistake for anything else. has personality in spades. What it does not have is gameplay.

EyeToy: Kinetic Combat – Review

Contrary to what other lazy reviewers (and I suppose I mean that literally) have said, the fitness aspect is really now a fringe benefit rather than the focus. Sony's London Studio should be applauded for testing themselves with such a peculiar and unprecedented goal as teaching a specific martial art, but sadly Kinetic Combat is not the inspirational software it could have been.

To ensure an unparalleled home fitness experience, the team at London Studio have applied their knowledge and skills gained from EyeToy: Kinetic to produce an even more sophisticated and refined fitness product.

Killzone – Second Opinion

You know it's a slow summer when I start checking the first-person shooters off my list. I usually only get in one or two a year, but I've been blazing through them lately. Surprisingly, most have been better than average… though Killzone isn't among them. The iconic glowing goggles on the cover caught my attention, but once inside my PlayStation 2, everything else lost it.

Talkman – Review

Sony will have a hard time convincing people that this foreign language aid will be as essential a travel companion to them as their iPod, their Nintendogs or, presumably, their foreign dictionary.
